Why Are We Still Dual Booting?

Quoting: crt0megaNah, I'm using Omega - the latest proprietary one. AMD performance is bad enough as it is for me to sacrifice more for the open source driver.
yeah.. i made this comment before i knew you're using a 290x. the last time i heard about "radeonsi" (the open source driver for your card) it was in good shape but still not "good enough" to consider it as an alternative to catalyst.
Quoting: mao_dze_dunPlus, I'm super lazy :). I appreciate the tip, though. It's just beyond my comfort zone. And since we're talking why people continue to dual boot, I'd actually use that as another example. I mean, hand to your heart, how many common users do you think would bother with that. The majority of people find the Windows method complicated and it involves using GUI and a pre-made preset, which often includes SMAA, so you don't even need RadeonPro.
Linux need both the support and the proper tools with easy to understand interface. The terminal should be an advanced tool for the power user, not a crutch for the average one.
i agree about the need for GUI tools. i'm a bit lazy, too :P

at least there's "DriConf" which has a nice GUI for configuring the ~/.drirc. the sad thing is that configuring DRI is only one part of optimizing these drivers..
Quoting: EKRboiYou also have to remember that I play @ 5760x1080 which does stress things quite a bit more. Vanilla F3 or NV @ 5760x1080 does play in wine just fine though.
aww yea! i totally forgot that you are the guy gaming with three displays. i also remembered that you're using the binary nvidia drivers. unfortunately my solution may not work for you; i'm playing fnv/f3 with "gallium nine" and in your case that would only work with nouveau. i don't now how good nouveau currently is.. i still would try these mods sooner or later. no need to hurry, you can send me a pm anytime :D
Quoting: EKRboiI'm drinking with some friends this evening
heheh, me too. have fun!

Torchlight II Now On Linux, Old News By A Day, But Here’s My Report

40-50fps here with AMD Radeon HD6850 but I need to play more and disable "compton" to validate...

Quoting: EKRboiTry to add a bunch of mods, especially texture mods and it turns into a crash fest.
mmh, could you provide some links? maybe i'm gonna try them ^^
Quoting: EKRboiFrom what I've gathered wine has some memory limitations (like 3 or 4gb) and just segfaults when you hit that limitation. (...)

When I tried it I tried to find a way around it but everything I ran across pretty much just said it is what it is. 64bit wine didn't make a difference either, it would crash at the same amount of memory allocation as 32bit.
running f3/fnv with 64bit wine doesn't make their ol' 32bit binaries "run as" 64bit binaries...
Quoting: EKRboiIf anyone knows a way around this PLEASE inform me, like NOW!
i can't promise anything but i'll try it ;)
Quoting: mao_dze_dunHow do I fix that in Windows - download a SweetFX preset I like, install it, launch the game and activate SMAA through RadeonPro - all in less than 3 minutes. It's definitely something I'd like to see in Linux.
Umm. If you're using mesa with gallium3d it's quite easy without installing anything.
export pp_jimenezmlaa=8
or use ~/.drirc
no need to download or install anything..

Quoting: oldrocker99...(and still play) the Linux-cliented Neverwinter Nights from my beginning to use Linux in 2008.
hehe, the old one with HOTU and so on? yeah, that was my first gaming experience on linux, too :D

back2topic: one of my laptops is still running windows 7 - for these games which aren't playable on linux with or w/o wine. the last time i booted it up was in late 2014 IIRC.

Quoting: AGamer07Personally, I am a Gamer first and a Linux user second. I discovered Linux last year and I really enjoy it. Sadly, my beloved Bethesda games (Fallout/ Elder Scrolls) are not on Linux :'( and there are some good looking FPS games on Windows that I really want to play (looking at you Battlefield :P ). Other than those listed all the games that I am really interested in are either playable natively or via WINE/Play on Linux. ^_^

Awww yeah. And I thought 2014 was a good year for Linux gaming but 2015 seems to get even better than 2014.

Time to get a bottle of that 7yo Havana Club :D
