PostPosted: Thu 30 Mar 2006, 19:27    Post subject:  108gameCD.iso  

Here's a game ISO (697MB) that has a modified xorgwizard that will set up 3D/DRI video acceleration and load all the libs. You can run it ram only boot if you want. I've tested it with some ATI cards, Radeon 7500 & 9250 (r100 & r200). I downloaded the 3-23-06 snapshot and DRI modules from the DRI website and compiled them and put them in the ISO. They're installed using MU's script. The following cards (might be) are supported:


* ATI Rage 128 cards 3D Rage Fury, 3D Rage Magnum, XPERT 2000, XPERT 128, XPERT 99, All-in-Wonder 128

* ATI r100 Radeon, Radeon VIVO, Radeon VE, Radeon 7800 or below

* ATI r200 Radeon 8500 to 9250, FireGL 8700/8800

* ATI Mach64 3D Rage Pro, 3D Rage LT Pro, 3D Rage XL, 3D Rage Mobilit, XPERT 98/LCD/XL, XPERTOPlay/Work, All-in-Wonder Pro

* ATI r300 Radeon 9500-9700

* Intel i810/i815 chips

* Intel i915 chips

* Matrox G200/G400 cards, Millenium G200 to G450, Mystique G200

* SIS cards

* 3dfx Voodoo 3/4/5 cards, Banshee, Velocity 100/200

* S3Savage, Savage3D, SavageMX/IX, Savage4, Supersavage, Prosavage/Twister/DDR

* Via unichrome

The xorgwizard will set it up. For the best speed choose 16 bit color.

The CD contains the following:

******icquake*******

Quake 3 -- This is the icculus.org version of the GPLed ID software code compiled from svn (CVS) on 3/11/06. It includes the ID software Demo game data, and one complete mod (Reaction Quake 495MB). Just click on quake3 to run the game. It can be ran directly from the CD. Homie and Snoopy bots are included. Other "complete mods" can be added if you copy the quake3 folder to your harddrive, just place any complete mods you down load in the main quake directory. Here's a list of mods you might want to download: True combat, Urban Terror, Bid for Power, Western Quake, Afterwards. If you have problems with some of the mods delete the the folder /root/.q3a and restart the game. Lan multiplayer works fine, but with internet play finding a compatable server can be difficult.


******DOTPUPS******


Armagetronad -- A tron light-cycle game, supports network/internet play. The executable is found in /usr/local/armagetronad.

D2X -- A 3D space shooter. Includes shareware data. You'll want to adjust the screen size, it's under options, screen res. The executable is found in /usr/local/share/games/d2x.

Supertux -- Popular knock-off of Super Mario Bros. The executable is found in usr/local/supertux.

Tuxmath -- Math game for 6-9 year olds. I think this is posted elseware, but this one has sound. The executable is found in usr/share.

bzflag --- A FPS tank game, supports network/internet play.

ppracer --- A fork from Tux Racer.

DukeNukem --- A FPS doom era game set in a city.

Then I ran out of space.

Boot ram only to test. It uses the regular pup001 for storage.

Wow that looks great!
I had thought of installing those dotpups but installing the drivers and configuring them seems too difficult for me Embarassed
Will the iso work with my S3 pro-savage chip that come with the motherboard?

I tried to get 3D going on a computer with S3 built on the mother board about 5 months ago. No luck, I think I found some posting from the developer saying that it wasn't supported. I'll try again with these new drivers and let you know what happens.

I have a built in s3 pro-savage and it worked with that
I liked tuxmath (oh alright it is for kids)
I decided to run from ram and it is a standard 1.0.8 Puppy install with an xorg selection of 3D drivers . . .

When into a standard puppy 1.0.8 I clicked on Mut and installed the .pups straight from the CD

I played Descent II and Duke Nuke 'Em, yep Tux is bouncing about and the sound is all there. There was a tron type game and one with on line support (you have to start a server)

Descent was in a tiny window but I had this before and Mark told me a quick tip to get full screen which I can not remember

This is crying out for a menu and some further development but is so much easier than the procedure to install some of the games previously (adding libraries etc)
It also whetted my appetite for maybe a 3D disk with Povray and other progs using the 3D card - anyone gonna give that a go - I know Nathan has already packaged some of these . . . Are there other progs that use the 3D?

I am not a great game player but for those that are, there seems a nice variety. Did not try the Quake type game - the screenshots looks good.

Well done Kirk, another step forward for Puppy . . .

povray does not use the 3D-cards.
It calculates 3D not in realtime.

3D-cards use "raycasting" (realtime, low quality), povray uses Raytracing (awfull slow, but higher quality).

Just some tools like modellers use 3D-cards, so that the elements you create in the 4-window-view are rendered faster.

----------
Note that I created a "quake-launcher".
It is a "universal" to use Program-launcher, that easily can be adapted for other programs (plans for the future).
I want to combine it with an enhanced "megapup002-launcher-Panel" to make it easy to run programs and read the included documentations.

puppian,
Tried it on the computer I have with a built-on mother board S3. No joy again the board reports as "VT8375 ProSavage8 KM266/KL266".

Lobster,

Most of those games will run with out 3D acceleration with the graphics options in the setup menus turned down. (They are more fun with 3D and full graphics). When you get a chance try the quake3 game and see it it works. It will only work if 3D is enabled. Just go to the cd and click on quake3 in the icquake3 folder, it will run right of the CD. It would be nice to know what boards are really supported.

Some menues would be nice, problably could included True Combat instead of Reaction quake, it's a couple hundred meg smaller and would leave room for lots of smaller games. I actually started this as a DVD with 1.5 GB of quake 3 mods but cut it down.

kirk,
You may have seen this thread about forum member Roger's problems with DRI for mach64 - http://www.murga.org/%7Epuppy/viewtopic.php?t=5244&start=32
From this we learned that mach64, savage, and VIA Unichrome Xorg drivers have their DRI functions disabled by default.
But DRI-enabled drivers for these chipsets have now been updated on MU's website.

To get 3D for mach64/savage/VIA working with your game package, from http://noforum.de/dotpups/X11R6addons/ I suggest you get -
dri-mach64-with-2D-driver.pup
dri-savage-with-2D-driver.pup
3D-DRI-via-openchrome.pup

and add all xorg drivers contained in /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers to your game package. These will overwrite the existing Xorg drivers in Puppy.
Your existing DRM modules and DRI files should be fine.

I think Sage posted so many times because he thought it wasn't working right. I got an e-mail error when posting a minute ago, also.

EDIT: Never mind, Flash just deleted the extra posts.

Thanks Tempestuous,
I'll put that in the next one. I've got a idea for putting nvidia drivers in too. It was probably a mistake to make this one so big (697MB). I think I'll drop reaction quake for the next one and shoot for about 250MB so more people can test it out.

If anyone has sucess with the 3D please post, I've only got to test it on ATI radeon r100 & r200.
