Im running Vista RTM Ultimate and Business and its a crock of shit IMHO. I have to suffer it every day. It is being pulled from my work machines and back to the 2003 SKU's.

Im holding out on my personal machines on XP 64bit edition until support and games are no more which should be a few years

RDP on it is even buggier as it cant decide what theme to use, classic or The Adams Family theme.

Seriously, if you must run Vista, I strongly advise waiting for the SP1, if you thought XP was buggy, Vista is WORSE.

Yes it can be an API and open source at the same time believe it or not

I care not if it is open or not, I just care that those that can contribute (Nvidia, AMD, Game engine houses etc, Sony, etc etc) DO contribute and the API spec is STANDARDISED, and kept up to date, and USED.

I will buy Crysis, at discount only

Looks a great game, FarCry was great. The map environments screamed immersion. I would dearly love a Tribes 2 mod for this engine (yeah lets turn it into a T2 thread instead now heh)

The farcry experience, awsome. The multiplayer could have been better, larger player counts and bigger maps ( like T2 ) hey can we have deployables too

They make an even bigger cartload of money on consoles, and OpenGL is not on the console technology stack. They want the least effort path and DirectX is that path (for XBox and PC's). PC's are an afterthought in games nowdays more and more, consoles being their primary market.

The other platforms wont ever take off without OpenGL on them thereby giving access to all 3 platforms BUT that wont include Consoles until they can get the API's onto that platform too.

Consoles is the main driver now and Microsoft owns that market with DX.

Since the subject of contribution of "open source" was brought up, why not bring up these as examples of companies with interest in these technology stacks contributing to them instead of the "user", in this case the gamer, I think it is absurd to expect a gamer / user / customer to contribute code to the technology stack. That actually is laughable, even if they could, you really think they can get it in the mainline branch. Lolerskates. Good luck with that And even more laughable, they sit wondering why nobody is using their technolgoy, in this case, OpenGL. Gee , lets think. I wonder why.

IBM and various other companies with interest contribute to Linux.

Nvidia and AMD and Epic and various other companies with interest can contribute to OpenGL.

Same principles apply whether it is gaming or not.

But no, you expect the GAMER, people who play the games to actually do the contribution. Funniest thing I have heard ever.

That is like asking the artist Andy Warhol to contribute to GIMP.


Why have a discussion about PC's and gaming as gaming is just for consoles, not personal computers whether it is Windows, Linux or OS X.


How many games hit Windows PC's, not many compared to the console market, how many games hit OS X, not many as OpenGL is dead, how many hit Linux, not many because of their open source attitude and OpenGL is dead.

This site should be for consoles only as gaming on personal computers won't exist at this rate

Im sitting with a gun to my head not my own thumbs up my arse. That gun is DirectX and game engine companies.

As for me not contributing, I am not a graphics developer and nor do I wish to be one, and as for contributing money? Why? They can get that money from graphics card companies and game engine companies if they really really had an interest in OpenGL, just like many companies contribute to Mozilla, Linux and so on. The same applies to OpenGL if you wish to go down that road.

The graphics chip companies can contribute money and skill to OpenGL, they are the right people to do so. Not gamers as you claim that should sit down and hack code, thats a bullshit lame response if I ever hard it, the same bullshit comes from the GIMP fanbois, if you dont like it contribute code, erm no I use gimp as an artist not a developer, you see that is what is wrong with opensource, the attitude, and it is the reason why it fails, OpenGL is a good exmaple of a failure, so is GIMP etc I can go on. OpenGL is dead in the gaming world. Period, because of this stupid attitude.

http://www.opengl.org/about/arb/

OpenGL has no central body? According to OpenGL themselves they have a review board, that seems an accountable group to me and a body to contact.

"The OpenGL Architecture Review Board (ARB), was an independent consortium formed in 1992, that governed the future of OpenGL, proposing and approving changes to the specification, new releases, and conformance testing. In Sept 2006, the ARB became the OpenGL Working Group under the Khronos Group consoritum for open standard APIs."

They dont seem to care about gaming adoption of OpenGL.


What killed OpenGL was the XBox. Period.

Graphics companies and game engine companies dont give a rats ass about OpenGL, if they did they would contribute. They dont as they want into the CONSOLE market.

OpenGL does not want into the gaming market.

And OS X and Linux uses OGL.

So what, its not rocket science, if you want to have the potential to have your engine sold to companies that wish to get into other platform markets then you use OGL.

NV has OGL AND DX built in. NV has both camps. It is the game engine developers.

Yes, NV likes to be in the XBox hardware so they suck it up.

The reason DirectX is the REAL STANDARD is because game engine companies want into the CONSOLE market and dont give a rats ass about the PC market, Period.

Gaming on Mac and Linux will NEVER happen while OGL sits with their thumbs up their arses. They have become the Matrox of graphics. Who? Yup thats what people think outside of the lab, or vision system, Matrox who? OpenGL who?

You cant always fall back on this "Open" bullshit. They are not just "open" they are claiming and trying to be as they put it in their own words "The INDUSTRY STANDARD", that has NOTHING to do with being Open, you can be a standard without being open as DirectX proves.

I guess you must want to fork out for Vista. I like many don't.

We can always vote with our wallets, which I will do. I wont be buying this at its full price as I wont get full benifit.

Yup OGL is not industry standard, DirectX is in the gaming world it seems.

I really would like to upgrade to Mac OS X but its not going to happen as we get more and more DXnn adoption.

While they are working on improving virtualisation graphics rendering, it would be much nicer if we just had a great cross platform standard, period. OGL *COULD* potentially be it but its not. Oh well.


I use Vista at work all day and its a piece of udder crap.

This is the way a thread goes every time it mentions DirectX10. Why? Because nobody wants to use Vista.

Go for it? Oh yeah we all want to sit and stare at lines of hacked up code. Eerm no, thats always the lame pathetic excuse for open source, OGL is more than just open source, our graphics cards implement it and games develope on it. I think you have to pull your head from your arse and quit your "elite" "oh if you dont like it change it" well for one I dont have the knowledge to do it and two I dont really give a shit about it at the code level.

Well, if that is what you want "oh fuck it its open so do it yourself" attitude then I suggest you promptly run out and buy Vista and lube up.

Enjoy the coffin that you built yourself.

I switch off when I hear opensource nowdays as it usually boils down to that attitude.

I suggest they keep it to themselves and stop pushing Open GL onto grahpics cards and pushing it as a "standard" as they obviously have no intention of supporting it and keeping up.

Quote: "The industry standard for high performance graphics"

http://www.opengl.org/about/overview/

Everything I read on this page is a blandant lie, if it is so standard then howcome they are adopting DirectX 10 more and more?


Why are they not out getting more and more uptake of OGL?

The reason OGL is not being adopted must either be 1) Licensing issues or 2) its a piece of shit.

Which is it?

Why wont the OGL devs do something to compete and get more adoption of OGL? Don't they care about OGL?

I am not going to Vista and therefore shall refuse to pay full price for a game when I will not get full benifit from it.

I think I will wait until it drops in price.

I see Steam is getting alot of titles that are on discount now, good to see. I don't use steam currently for my purchases.

I still order mostly through play.com, it works out similar pricing anyway (including delivery).

$10 USD is approximately £5 GBP And not forgetting this £9.99 includes delivery across Europe

Just because somebody doesnt complete it in 8 hours "total" doesnt mean they suck, perhaps they take their time and enjoy it or do you suffer from the "im the center of the universe" obnoxious attitude that we see in games nowdays.

Player1: Fag!
Player2: Y0 kiss yer mamma bum
Player3: You are gay!
*endless voice bind spams as Player 4 takes a retarded fit*

This is one of the reasons I shall not buy UT3.

Yup this is why gaming today is crap, a bunch of sociopaths seem to always be on the servers.

What alternatives do you suggest? No way would I pay 30 GBP for it not even 20, so at 10 GBP its a pretty decent price.

HL2: Episode One at 10 GBP too would be a pretty good price. I can see play.com reducing that once ep two is out.

I unlike some do not play computer games for 8 hours straight in a row How sad

Just purchased Prey for 9.99 (delivered) http://www.play.com/Games/PC/4-/688401/Prey/Product.html

HL2: Episode one (once play.com drop its price when ep2 is released)
HL2: Episode Two including Portal and Team Fortress 2 mods
QuakeWars: Enemy Terratory


I think that will keep me busy for a while (Who pays full price for anything thesedays anyway )

.. because I brings hope they are going back to the UT original roots rather than the 200x crap. Than again most likely not as they cater for the majority which unfortunately is the retarded ones.

Fact of life, consoles bring in more money than PC's. Walk into your local game store and you can see it is filled to the roof with console games and right at the back, one shelf for PC games :), the mac is starting to catch up on PCs now for shelf space

Perhaps it was the Tribes 2 experience that got me liking the "freedom" of movement in gaming rather than invisible forcefields.
