Apart from TeamSpeak and Ventrilo, there are actually at least 2 very similar cross-platform open source voice communication programs being developed. One of them is fairly close to being what I would consider to be ready, the other has not yet made an alpha release and is thus definitely not ready to be used while gaming yet (we are working on it though).

The one that I consider to be almost ready is called Mumble.

The other one I will probably not mention until it is a lot closer to being ready, because I don't want the first impression of it to be too bad (and you don't really have any use for it yet anyway).


Mumble hasn't been updated since Oct 2006 :P

There hasn't been a release since then, but that doesn't mean that they aren't working on it.

If you know how to compile it yourself you could try downloading it from svn. If not, a new version will hopefully be out soon. (Scroll to the last few messages, the beginning of that thread is old.)

well i'm in need of some rev 2 help...

I've got wine 0.9.36 and up until the patch everything was fine and dandy. Now I find that I can only run the game for about 3 mins before it crashes back to the desktop. The last message I get on the console is

fixme:d3d:IWineD3DQueryImpl_Issue >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY (0x505) from glBeginQuery() @ query.c / 380

Can anyone point me in the direction of a fix?

Try using regedit to set VideoMemorySize to the amount of memory your graphics card has.

See this link for info on where in the registry it's supposed to be (you might have to create it).

Just wondering, how well are EVE running for you all on Linux?
Got:
AMD x2 4200
Nvidia 7800gtx 256mb
2gb ram

And i'am wondering about giving Linux a try with Wine/Cedega and EVE.
Running vista x64 now(running pretty well btw).
I wonder if anyone have a slightest opinion on how well you think this would run on Linux compared to vista?

My sig says it all. heh heh. Actually my bet is that performance wise (vista vs. linux) they would be very similar with the edge going to linux for better driver (nvidia)/(sound) support. When I compare framerates with corp members, I find that I'm either the same....or slightly BETTER at times with them. Those comparisons are with XP users to my Ubuntu system.

I use Cedega, and its FPS is slightly better than the same rig under wine, but I use/pay for cedega as it (currently) has basically no gfx issues. Wine still has some glitches. (nothing serious or not playable but they are there.)

That all said, CCP has indicated an actual linux and mac client due in August of this year. You might want to spend that time familiarizing yourself with the differences between the operating systems. If you are a linux NEW user, then Ubuntu, PClinuxOS, Mandriva, Sabayon are all good choices to get started with. I'd recommend Ubuntu simply for the fact that it currently has the BEST user support forums out there, and 99% of the time, if you have a technical or usage question, its already been asked/answered.

AMD x2 3800 dual core.
NFORCE4 gigabyte m.board /onboard 7.1 sound
NVIDIA 7950 GT 512meg pci
2 gig corsair ram (dual channel 128bit config)
300 gig sata drive
Ubuntu 7.04 32bit
cedega 6.02
logitech bluetooth keyboard/ mx1 lazer mouse

I have never had great luck with 64bit. Seriously wonky stuff with certain apps has been my experience.
The speed differences tween 64bit and 32bit have never been "visible" enough to warrant migration over to 64bit yet.
32bit has been fast, smooth and most of all compatible with the applications/games I run/play without the necessity of chroots and such.

Game is still running fine for me but a few bugs I've noticed, none are show stoppers but:

My desktop cursor appears along with the eve cursor, so it appears I have two mouse cursors.

Sound drops sometimes and then reappears delayed (i.e, it will say warp drive active after ship finishes warping) checking the terminal window Wine has given a few ASLA errors

The ship module fitting screen is kind of screwed up, transperancy wise, can still see it but colors look garbled I'll take a screen shot next time to demonstrate.

When I alt tab betwen eve and the desktop (I'm runing eve full screen) and then switch back to eve the keyboard doesn't respond anymore, makes it impossible to check thing in oog browser, can't log out of eve either since none of the keyboard input is accepted. Basically have to do a hard reboot to avoid this.

I plan on installing the next version of wine when it hits the repo's, don't really like compile stuff from source as it screws up the package management a bit (at least in my experience). In the meantime anyone got an suggestions?

I'm running Cedega/Revelations II, works great except for one part. I use Twinview (dual 1680x1050 monitors) and Eve detects the resolution as 3360x1050. Here's what I've tried:
- Turning eve into windowed mode... The only selectable resolution is 3360x1050.
- Enabling "Desktop" mode in cedega for Eve... This makes a window of size 1280x1024 (or whatever I specify) that has Eve in it, but eve is drawing as if it's still on 3360x1050 (I only see half of the screen).
- Both (eve windowed mode & cedega desktop mode)... Essentially the same thing.
- Tweaking the prefs.ini... I've tuned destkopWidth and desktopHeight with absolutely no affect whatsoever... Not even sure why this file is here.

Any ideas? I'd sure appreciate them.

Cedega/rev2 here. 2.4 ghz pentium something or other, old geforce ti4800se, 1.3 gigs of ram.

Had some trouble with the client showing white text boxes. Turned OFF the pixel shader and vertex shader options under the cedega global settings...now it works. with my in game options tuned down I get about 60 fps inside the station.

As to the huge resolution problem, if you're doing cedega, go to edit, global settings, and where it says desktop... set that at a reasonable resolution. I then ran eve in fullscreen, inside a cedega window. It let me select 1280x1024 with no trouble.

*edit* Though i did have some resolution touchiness till I disabled my second monitor. That tended to make it think it was a big widescreen monitor. With resolutions to match.

Trivial problem - I Can't type cyrillic letters into Eve (but i can see letters typed by my corpmates)
Distr - MOPSLinux 5.1 (Slackware-based), Wine .36 and .40

Earlier, in Revelations 3.14 this problem was solved by launching eve with LC_ALL=ru_RU.koi8r LANG=ru_RU.utf8 wine eve.exe, but with Revelation 3.20 expansion I see only splash screen (it disappear after 5 secs) and then ExeFile.exe process just hang in memory. If I launch game withount LC_ALL=ru_RU.koi8r LANG=ru_RU.utf8 - it is working, but without cyrillic input... Is any ideas how to fix it?

BTW - I've tried to launch wine's notepad, and i can't type cyrillic too, but if I launch it with LC_ALL=ru_RU.koi8r LANG=ru_RU.utf8 wine regedit - problem dissapeared...

Arial.ttf, Arialuni.ttf is present.

I'v hunting through posts and I dont think anyone has the same problem as me, I have set all the recommended settings for the game but I cant seem to get past the login screen, it loads it all but then when changing to go into the char selection screen it just closes with no errors, I am running beryl might this be messing with it?

Upgrade to the latest version of wine (0.9.40), that should fix it.

has any one used crossover to run EVE, and does any one know how to fix the black screen for the login window using crossover? I'm very new to Linux and just can't figure this out.


I am running it through crossover. The only think I needed to get it working, was to copy arial.ttf from a windows installation into the eve bottle windows/fonts folder. You may also want to copy the dirext9 dll from windows\system32 directory in the bottle too.

Just a quick note: I spent the day working on this.

WINE 0.9.40,
latest (as of today, 07-06-07) EVE build.
Dell Latitude D800 Laptop. Geforce Mobile 64mb gfx card.

It works just like the WINE database says. Copy the font file, and so on and so forth. A couple differences from other people's experiences:

RedistD3DXOnly.exe didn't work. It fails with " err:setupapi:do_file_copyW Unsupported style(s) 0x144". I simply copied the file over and it works fine.

The game fired up ok and worked just fine. However, the framerate was *horrible*. A word on my hardware. Unlike most of the folks here, I have no 1337 hardware. My laptop is pretty nifty for a laptop. 1920 X 1200 resolution and all that. 2 gb of RAM. But it's still a laptop. With a 'mobile' graphics card. So I figured I might have been just screwed.

Just to be safe, I swapped out drivers. Switched to the 'nvidia' driver instead of the xorg 'nv' driver. Framerate is now totally playable. Game seems stable after a few hours of playing. It certainly doesn't look as pretty as my windows desktop, but I'll chalk that up to a crappy GeForce mobile card, rather than my old-but-still-rad-and-kickin Radeon 9800 Pro.

I've gone ratting sucessfully, hit a few easy level III missions with no real problems. It's not the 60-70 fps other people are reporting, but I'm happy. Most importantly it's seems stable. Which is good, seeing as my XP box randomly reboots. Usually after I finish setting a spread of probes...or right after I wander into someone else's hostile fleet...

Anyway, that's my two cents.

WINE + Ubuntu + EVE + nvidia driver == happy

L

openSuse 10.2
wine 0.9.40 (currently set to Win2k mode, anybody know if it works better in others?)

Core2Duo 1.83GHz, mobile
GeForce Go 7600 (256MB VRAM, proprietary nvidia driver)
2GB system RAM

The game is playable, and graphics quality is quite tolerable. However, framerates are perhaps 40% what I get in Vista (23fps sitting at a POS, ~30fps in warp, 16fps or less ratting in belts). I don't dare go on a fleet op with that kind of rate.
Sound is good (ALSA 1.14 I think) and EVE updates worked.
Alt-tab did not crash EVE, but it took a while for the display to fix itself when EVE was restored.

To the guy above me: the nv (open source nVidia driver) doesn't support modern 3d acceleration in hardware, so it uses software emulation. This will simply destroy your framerates. The proprietary nVidia drivers are much better.

Questions:
Has anybody used both wine 0.9.36 and .40, and if so what were your experiences?
Since I have a legit Windows version and don't mind using its libraries, are there any DLLs I should instruct wine to use?
Does anybody know which version of Windows I should tell wine to pretend to be?
Does anybody have suggestions for improving framerates? Reducing resolution isn't really an option (laptop screen) but I dropped the colors to 24bit depth and that gave me about 10% improvement.

I'm a cedega user, and posted some cedega tweaks in this thread awhile back, but I also use wine (currently .9.40) to test and assist eve users that are not cedega users.

This link gives a bunch of useful registry tweaks to improve things under wine, and some of them will probably get you some speed fps-boost. Keep in mind, that just like in windows (tm), the registry can be a dangerous toy (read explosive device).

Wine Registry Useful stuff

Hope that helps some of you wine users.

1. .9.36 doesn't have "alsa" issues on my system. .9.40 doesn't see alsa on my ubuntu 7.04 rig. Both seem VERY playable, but .9.40 is more "native" as far as installation, as well as map fixes.

2. You don't need ANY native windows stuff for EVE and wine. (I'd recommend against it, as any changes to wine could bork your install down the road.)

3. Preferably wine should be set to be "XP". You can run as 2k, but XP is the safe choice.

3. See my post directly above this one for 'tweaking' the registry.

where do we stand? what´s the better performance? lets see some numbers!

(Linux noob here, but seriously thinking about it)

I'm getting a bunch of these when running it in wine :

fixme:d3d_draw:drawPrimitive Using software emulation because not all material properties could be tracked

So I suppose it's slower in linux atm. I haven't made any attempt at optimizing yet though, and I haven't made any tests to see which is faster of windows and linux either atm.

In addition they are looking at introducing several new clients in the upcoming months including a Linux Client (in around 3 weeks) and a Mac client sometime this summer.

Any comments on this? Truth? Exaggeration?


Can we get an answer to this? Why was it even announced?

Sweet, just noticed that sound magically works in the latest Cedega version for me. Very Happy

I don't think there's been any official annoucement. It could be pure fluff, speculation, or an outright lie.

Hey all,

I've got a question. I'm reasonably proficient using gentoo, and I thought I would give EVE a whirl under it after reading this thread.

I have Cedega installed and updated. Installed EVE using it and it does work. However, fps is nowhere near what it is in XP.

I have a GTS 8600 vid card. I installed the latest nvidia drivers directly from their website. I checked to make sure that DRI is working and the output of glxinfo seems to indicate it is.

However, if I go into the graphics properties within eve, it shows I'm using the Direct3D HAL. Should it say this or show my nvidia card? That seems to indicate EVE is using software emulation instead of my graphics hardwar. I'm at work atm, so I don't have access to my computer, but the only thing I can think of is I may not have set the GDDB setting to eve before playing. Would that make a difference?

Also, I'm running gnome atm, but maybe switching to XFCE would help?

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated :)

The Direct3D HAL is normal. You may want to make sure you are funning eve "fullscreen". If EVE is set via its settings to 'windowed', your FPS will be crap. You can run, via cedega, windowed with full FPS by setting EVE fullscreen within game, and use the desktop settings in cedega to run "windowed".

Check this post Cedega Tweaks

for additional speed 'boosts' for cedega+EVE.
