New tank game based on open scene graph - Linux beta available.
Pretty cool until you get shot down too fast You need a card with Shader Model 2.0, so basically GeForce 5 or better or Radeon 9500+.

Hm interesting, looks like it's from an Austrian developer team.
Thanks for mentioning this game, Kano. It's really fun to play with some friends! Haven't done Team Deathmatch, but it looks like a great game to play in the school with some friends when there's nothing else to do. We're having Trackmania United for that atm...
Its a great game however it needs a way to adjust for slow connections giveing a more even playing field.
Those that dont play mp games much get fragged before they have a chance to move out of the parking lot.
Well I enjoy most of the time a very low ping (<40) to the offical server, so it is more easy for me... Maybe just host a game on your pc - it seems you do not even need a portforward, just try. Then others can connect to your pc and frag you
This game is fun and has nice scenery .

Well if somebody is used to fps then it is no big deal to learn it. Just the same as when you use a vehicle with games like UT2k3. There is just a huge difference in online gaming compared to single player: you can not use god mode and therefore you have to be fast. This game is pure online, no single player mode.
Thanks for sharing!
I like the beta, will play more when my savage 2 addiction wears off...
There is a new update out: beta 1.1. The biggest difference is that MG fire is limited to about 3 s then it overheats. Also there is a new level dm_bridge which has cool jumps. You need 1 speed upgrade to jump over bridges over the lake. All Kanotix users can install it this way:
apt-get update && apt-get install zero-ballistics-demo
Maybe you see a live cd with it soon too.
Live CD with automatic installer for nvidia and ati graphics cards:
There must be a bug in the game that sound does not always work, in that case often
helps then just press enter until it is done. If you use a CRT or you TFT reports wrong resolution use
or whatever size you want to use. The cd defaults to german, so look into Spiele/Arcade.
