A list of games currently broken in some way on Mesa drivers.

Please read before editing!

  • Please make sure you list the Mesa version used.
  • Mesa git, please only put the date and in DD/MM/YY format. This will make it easier to sort the table.
  • If you don't know the Mesa version, please do not post it as it's not helpful to anyone.
  • If the game is broken on multiple versions of Mesa, please use a new entry for each one. Only add data to an existing one if you're using the exact same Mesa version.
  • Try to use hyperlinking instead of pasting URLs, it keeps the table neat.
