Software News   Software News : Cube 2 available for AROS!
   posted by deadwood on 8-Jul-2011 17:06:52 (3620 reads)

I'm happy to announce availability of Cube 2 : Sauerbraten for AROS. Cube 2 is an actively developed First Person Perspective shooter with fast game-play, beautiful 3D graphics, featuring many single player maps, a single player campaign mode as well as on-line multi-player game-play.

Cube 2, however, is not just another game port for AROS. It is the first game that truly uses the advanced capabilities and features of AROS 3D sub-system. By utilizing those capabilities, Cube 2 provides level of 3D effects not seen before on AROS. We invite you to watch our presentation video. You will notice the difference :)

or

AROS port comes with game executable and separate initial configuration utility which allows users to quickly set up the game to match the video hardware they have. The data files need to be downloaded separately and installed into the game drawer. For maximum details a video card with 512MB of VRAM is recommended. Please read the attached ReadMe file for more information. The game requires update of some AROS components. More information can be found in the ReadMe file.

Game installation package can be downloaded from:

http://download.aros3d.org/releases/cube2-20100719.i386-aros.zip

I would like to thank all involved in testing this port.

Have fun and enjoy the game!

That's a nice preview of what to come to AmigaOS4 in some months.

Looks like AROS team has done a excellent job.

Cube2 rokz !

I already have half-working port of cube2 for aos4, but just it make no sense to release it without gallium. Strange why AROS guys not make more ports for now when they have full mesa+gallium, and only deadwood worry about.. There is plenty of cool opensource 3d games which will rokz on mesa/galium.

As far as i undersand it use capabilities and features of Gallium , not something specially done for aros only and what not avail on say linux ? Or i miss something , and AROS have in gallium something "aros-only" for now ? (except necessary parts for port-code of course).

Too little devs, too little time... Would you be interested in porting 3D stuff for AROS? =)

You are correct - the game uses shaders and other stuff available in OpenGL 2.x. This support is delivered by Mesa which is AROS 3D sub system. :)

My recent hardware purchases are with AMD graphics hardware e.g. Radeon HD 6950, 5770, 5730M/6570M(i.e. Dell Studio XPS 1645 laptop), 6250M (i.e. Acer Iconia W500 tablet).

I gave away my old gaming laptop e.g. 2007 era ASUS G1Sn with NVIDIA Geforce 9500M GS to a family member.

Great news for AROS (they go really well ahead!)! As well as RtCW was for MOS!

Wish AOS4 would close the gap regarding 3D and ported games soon!

When the OS4 version sees the light of day I hope to see a fair of you guys playing online. Personally I play Assault Cube as its the latest and greatest; I understand kas1e has a near-working version of that too. It would sure make a change to play with Amiga users rather than the current crop of teenie boppers that play day in day out with their foul language, bad spelling and lame in-game voting.

Be sure to include 'Amiga' in your player name.
