    And in related (and very good) news: http://sociable.co/2011/08/06/doom-3-source-code-to-be-open-sourced-by-the-end-of-the-year/


    One could hope that other games’ developers are listening, especially those based in Cary. :)

    Yeah but RAGE probably won't be available on Linux, which is disappointing to say the least.

    At least there is a glimmer of hope in the future. Desura has a Linux client on the verge of release!

    Also, an interesting article on Phoronix about some Q&A responses icculus gave during the HIB3.

    This in particular makes me think this is what happened to UT3 Linux/OSX:
    Epic probably didn't want to license their middleware on yet another platform. Lame!

    Full HD? Holy carp. Are you just using x11grab there, or something else? And what is your recording output codec, then?

    Code:
    #bash - inferno
    pactl load-module module-loopback > .tempmodule
    ffmpeg -f x11grab -s 1680x1050 -r 30 -b 4000k -minrate 4000k -maxrate 4000k -i :0.0 -f alsa -i pulse ~/Videos/newvid.mpg
    pactl unload-module `cat .tempmodule`
    
    Loop back is to capture my mic as well as the game sounds. I disable it for recording just game stuff.

    Oh, it's not full HD then, it's Widescreen Super Extended Graphics Array Plus. Hm, I thought YouTube scaled the video down one notch so your video would be 720p and not 1080p max...

    Still, the fact that you can record WSXGA+ content using the MPEG-4 ASP format (I assume that's what FFmpeg uses when it detects the .mpg extension) is pretty amazing. I get slowdown even if I use Motion JPEG codec, and that one is very fast. What are your PC specs, then?

    That explains it, my PC is 16 month period without any overclocking, so it's a quad-core at 2.8 GHz. And, of course, fglrx graphics drivers.

    I just got borderlands installed though wine. Runs like a charm (solid 60fps) but I kind of want to tweak the FOV and get rid of any mouse smoothing or shit like that. Where should I look?
