Something about the joystick support, maybe a direct input issue with WineX, would you be so kind Oleg in lending Transgaming a hand to get things upto scratch?

OBTW, enjoying a crash free environment.

Does your joystick work with other games
under winex?

I'm still struggling with ATI Linux support
now I have a 9800...

You mean your actually getting ATI support? ... lol.

My 9800 pro is the flakiest card I've ever owned http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif .. thinking about going back to nvidia ...

I'd stick with Nvidia under Linux until ATI can get drivers happening consistantly over a couple releases. Pretty Piss Poor but heym, that's ATI http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif

Joystick I only want to use under FB. FB only thing I use Wine-X for other games are Linux Native a Joystick is ok there.

Actually I got a decent reply from ATI about
my Windows problem. Hoepfully it will fix it.
Since I like to run Linux I suspect that Nvidia
might be my choice next upgrade.

By the looks of it Nvidia have a very big edge in OpenGL over ATI for their newly released parts. Also something to consider for Linux usage. Running UT2004 natively on Linux with a Ti4400 and it performs very well. Distro is Arch Linux which i686 optimised and very clean.

why so you can uncompile the game

Leadspitter:
You can no more 'uncompile the game' on Linux
than on Windows!

Hawk:
I am wondering if I should have stuck with
Nvidia. Next time...

How does Arch Linux compare with Suse in
terms of its speed? Is it a source compiled
package system like Gentoo? Or more like
Debian or rpm based?

Aaron, Arch can be a mixture of both but the main install people do are pre compiled packages compiled for the i686 instruction set. Pacman is similar to Apt in it's package handling but then there is also makepkg with which you can set optimisation flags, similar to the Gentoo Portage system for a fully compiled and optimised system based on your current hardware.

Personally I just stick to pacman for everything except for kernels which I compile myself for my system taking out the stuff I'll never use but I keep the default module selections from the Arch config scripts for hardware I would use for portability if I need.

It would be nice to have a Linux client for FB. Those of us running UT2004 Linux Clients have noticed frame rates almost doubling that of windows on the same hardware (Nvidia needed here till ATI get their act together). Maybe with Other developers going the Win/Linux Client releases on same disc route, Oleg and co will one day. BoB for Linux would be great.

At least we are getting Doom 3, and Cold War linux binaries. Not really hard to do but hey, what do I know, like "FB is sooo much more complicated than any other game on the market" response that get sprouted by its primary coder. Who are they to say their code is more than any others? By the looks of the damage models and flight model problems I'd say it's on par with its contempories. If in doubt, just read the forum. Not a perfect superior world, hey Oleg? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
