PCGamingWiki Looks At Tropico 5 And Borderlands 2 Linux Ports
11 October 2014 at 9:06 am UTC

abelthorneJust tried to activate dynamic ligthning on an ATI GPU and I now know that there's a very good reason it isn't on by default.

First, don't set CompositeDynamicLights to true. Really. Don't. Not sure if it is active on nVidia hardware but with my ATI I get a GPU lockup as soon as the game has to render 3D : black screen (no signal to the monitor), has to force a hard reboot.

As for DynamicLights, you can see the problem on the menu screen (where you see your character): some textures displayed as black and flickering. Didn't even try to enter the game in that shape.

Note that I'm using a RadeonHD 7770 with Mesa devel (1.4 from Oibaf PPA). Results might differ on a different GPU or with Catalyst.

Don't get that issue with the Cat driver.That's on both a 5870 and 290x. So might be a Mesa bug.

You know that DynamicLights is off by default in Borderlands2 for *nix!

/.local/share/aspyr-media/borderlands 2/willowgame/config/willowengine.ini

Line 1099

DynamicLights=False

Change to

DynamicLights=True

HTH.

stan
pete910Seems to be using all cores fairly evenly on mine. (about 15% ish)
Well I don’t know how many cores your CPU has, but even 15% * 8 would be only 120%. Linux likes to move processes from one core to another very frequently so that may be the reason why you see all cores being used. Or the game is multithreaded after all .

4790k.

Forgot about that, Made CPU graph full screen seems to jumping. looks even on the small one on desktop . I should have realized that.

Hi guys, New to forum.(Not the site though )

Just bought the 4 pack for me and my family! missed the sale

Wasn't expecting brilliant performance but I am shocked. It runs real well on my 290x @ 1440p all high/far

Seems to be using all cores fairly evenly on mine. (about 15% ish) Is that driver difference?

Using cat 14.9

Going to see what performance it is like on my old hd5870/1090t x6 my daughter has. Sons should be fine as he has a NV 560ti with an i5 2500k in his.(famous last words)

Have too meany games to play..... ( Still seems wrong saying that in *nix )
