View Full Version : Vega Strike
30th August 2010, 08:24 PM
The game Vega Strike looks pretty ausome. I installed it and the graphics were a little to high, so I have to change them. It recommends using Retro graphics since my ATI x700pro video card is not supported anymore. I am using the driver that came with fedora, which is pretty ausome! The only thing is that Retro graphics are no textures and only wireframe?? Next is low graphics which has some textures, do you think the video driver could handle it?? (Smoothly)?

I doubt it.
In my opinion, the open source drivers are just not there yet. If you want to play games like Vega Strike in Linux, grab a nVidia card and go with their drivers via RPMFusion. You can buy a fanless nVidia card capable of playing Linux based 3D space simulators for around $50.
If you want to play a GREAT 3D Space simulator, I highly recommend FreeSpace and FreeSpace2 (http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page). There are several good total conversions out there too, including the Babylon Project.

It's my favorite 3D space combat simulator, bar none. :cool:

If depends on which Gforce2 card you have. The following cards are not supported..
GeForce2 GTS/GeForce2 Pro (0x0150)
GeForce2 Ti (0x0151)
GeForce2 Ultra (0x0152)
Quadro2 Pro (0x0153)
The Gforce2 cards below are supported in F12 using the 96xx drivers from RPM fusion.
GeForce2 MX/MX 400 (0x0110)
GeForce2 MX 100/200 (0x0111)
GeForce2 Go (0x0112)
The 96XX drivers have been updated to work with xorg1.8 (F13) but haven't made it into RPMfusion yet.
You can find out exactly which video card you have by booting up with a Fedora Live CD and entering the following command in the terminal.
You can check here to see which driver you need (http://http.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/195.36.24/README/supportedchips.html) for your card. The cards at the bottom which use the 71.86.xx drivers are no longer supported (afaik).
