Will this project require 3D accelleration?

Got something to say that doesn't fit anywhere else? It goes here

Hello,

Main reason for me asking this is that i just cant get the damn ATI driver working.

Fedora Core 6 supports basic 3D.. will that be enough?

Currently, all of the rendering is done via OpenGL. Practically it means that you have to have 3D acceleration enabled to get any decent frame-rates.

I'm sorry I couldn't be of any more help. Maybe someone more experienced Linux user could help you out.

You can run Allacrost with a software renderer of the OpenGL library, so technically it doesn't require you to have a 3D card. However, the software accelerated version of OpenGL is very very slow, so Allacrost would be barely playable. If I were you, I'd keep struggling with those ATI drivers. I know its a pain in the ass, but I got the ATI drivers installed on Debian back in 2004, and I know that the drivers have gotten better since then.


Or even better, sell your ATI card on e-Bay and pick up a decent nVidia card. :D
