Thank you team for testing efforts
Still need to test MESA driver compatibility

 

 

??? How will anyone test MESA with no Linux binary in your patch ???


Please visit TDM's IndieDB site and help promote the mod:

Still no answer from AMD guys.
I wonder how much time it usually takes for response...

Forever

First someone needs to sign up for testing

Gents,

 

what are technical requirements for this?

 

I'm running TDM on my old HP EliteBook 8730w, 4GB RAM and Nvidia Quadro FX 2700M.

ArchLinux (x64) installed.

Not a top-notch set-up, but far enough for C++ development and playing TDM :-)

 

If this HW is enough for testing and you tell me what to test, I may help a bit.

 

(an attempt to compile TDM from source is on my waiting list so I unfortunately need binaries)

Do you get lights with stencil shadows in 2.07? If yes, then there is nothing to test for you :unsure:

It might be interesting to know about Darkriser's performance.

 

If s\he is using Nouveau free drivers there might be something similar happening there to MESA

I suppose the MESA only plays that trick on GPU's supporting the shader5 extension which is not the case with FX 2700M.

Did anyone talked with the driver team boss on twitter like I suggested?  He usually responds, even if to say "we are looking into it".  At least that way, we know someone from the driver team is aware something is wrong. Using the normal bug report system, i'm sure it will end, on the end of the priority list, unless is a bug that affects some famous AAA game, because they will give priority to big commercial and famous games and not a free game. 

 

btw if you guys want me to do it, just tell me what I should say and I will post it on his twitter page.

No.

His twitter looks like a personal one, I think it is wrong to write there with things like that.

Bumping priorities in this way also sounds wrong to me.

After all, since Duzenko found a workaround, their response is no longer critical.

 

Also, I don't like all that negative attitude towards drivers developers :angry:

They are our colleagues, with far more skills and problems than ourselves.

It is usually ordinary players who go to AMD/NVIDIA/Intel forums and complain there how bad their products/company/developers/whatever are without knowing anything at all.

And this is exactly the reason why it is so hard to reach the developers: I guess 99% of public bug reports are utter rubbish filled with negative emotions.

Because they're too busy writing that new super cool feature the marketing department just came up with
