3D News, GL, DirectX "The leading question most of you are likely wondering is why there hasn't been anymore ATI GPU specifications released in over two months. Well, as we have shared in earlier articles, AMD has had limited staff devoted to sanitizing the documentation and getting it cleared by their legal department for release. However, that is about to change. AMD's John Bridgman has confirmed that they are in the process of hiring new people to do all of the planned documentation and support work that will help the open-source community. Within a couple weeks, these new AMD employees will begin this crusade."

Have you tried Urban Terror 4? (http://www.urbanterror.net) it is an online FPS based on the Quake 3 source.

Well, Urban Terror is cool, but it is not exactly something to show of 3d on Linux, except if you want to show that Linux can compete graphic wise with Amiga.

have you seen where people have taken the q1 engine since the days when it was made open source?

while its not crysis level (and imo that game is there to show of the hardware of the person playing it, more then being a good game. basically its the computer version of the nissan skyline and similar), its impressive how far they have taken it, and still being (mostly, i have seen some issues ever so often) compatible with the mods made when q1 was new.

hmm, q1 team fortress on a updated engine vs the resently released team fortress 2 from valve?

IMHO, the most beautiful free FPS is True Combat which is built on Enemy Territory.

Yes, the home page for it is here: http://www.urbanterror.net/

There is an installer script for Linux found here: http://forums.urbanterror.net/index.php/topic,8165.0.html

I used it on Ubuntu 7.10 and it worked fine.
