    Default Open-Source Doom 3 Running On Wayland

    Phoronix: Open-Source Doom 3 Running On Wayland

    The dhewm3 engine, which is one of the open-source forks of the id Tech 4 engine similar to ioDoom3, is now working on Wayland...

    Nice to see it running.

    Anyone have the hardware specs that was running on for comparison? I'd mostly like to know if there's a cost/benefit of running this game on Wayland vs. over X.

    Also, the end of the video highlights why mouse capture support is a requirement for gaming

    Well, that was captured with weston running on x11 because I ran into an issue with weston straight on drm. On top of that, the capture process slowed the game down a little.
    So no real numbers to compare yet. Once I cleanup and push my wayland patches for SDL2 you're welcome to try yourself.

    Indeed, and in fact I posted this video in #wayland for that reason, because such a mouse grab is currently not implemented in wayland.

    Default Awesome

    I love this video.
    It strengthens my hope that soon we can get rid of old X.
    X did its contribution to linux, but linux needs to move on to the next level.
    I know replacing X with Wayland brings its own challenges, but It also makes the development much easier, both for driver and desktop developers (Gtk, Qt, etc).
    X is way too complex that slows down progression.
    Also it's time for canonical to step in and contribute to wayland instead of just watching it. If they don't they are stupid!
    Beleieve me or not canonical has the power to make wayland a mainstream topic. Only after that companies like Nvidia and AMD start to take it seriously.

    Canonical contributes and plans to implement wayland in one of the next releases. Some apps (ie firefox) seem not to care so much about it but there is still plenty of time.

    Compared to the original DOOM 3, the changes of dhewm 3 worth mentioning are:
    • 64bit port
    • SDL for low level OS support, OpenGL and input handling
    • OpenAL for audio output, all OS specific audio backends are gone
    • OpenAL EFX for EAX reverb effects (read: EAX on all platforms)
    • A portable build system based on CMake
    • (Cross-)compilation with mingw-w64
    https://github.com/dhewm/dhewm3

    That is basically everything I wanted from a Doom 3 source port. Can not wait until it is stable.

    As Shuttleworth already stated he plans to take Ubuntu proprietary some where down the road I hope they stay out of it all together.

    Sauce of that comment as that's taking it out on a limb
