Enemy Territory


ok guys, I have Intel Extreme Graphics 2 (82865G) Which is an onboard graphics controller. Enemy Territory (ET) is the only game I play and have been playing for years now but after switching from windows (where it worked perfectly) to Linux, it's all choppy and jerky and uber dark, can't hardly see it, even after setting all game system settings and graphics as low as they can go and gamma and such as high as they can go, which is well below what I use to play it at in windows but it's still jerky and choppy and just unplayable. Please help. At first I thought I needed to install the intel linux drivers for it but after running an xchat system script it shows up in the script output just as it should. My friend said that adding intel-agp and agpgart to the modules file would be better than installing the intel drivers anyway but still no difference in the game. Even after an upgrade through synaptic, still no difference, I will stop there with that issue and hope someone has a solution for me.

I understand you're new to linux but a simple search in the net i.e. with google could help you.

Here's what I found.

I don't have that chip so I can't try if they work but it's a beginnig.

Cheers

Been there, done that, didn't work.

Oh, and I've been all over the internet several times looking for this solution, if the truth is out there, it sure as hell doesn't want to be found.

I had a similar problem with my radeon igp320, I upgraded x11r6 to version 8.1

post more information about you system, like what distro, what verzion of xorg

also, try typing glxinfo, and looking for a string like "direct rendering" it should say yes next to that, and
you should find a string about the opengl drivers, it shouldn't say anything about software.

This is the best and most detailed that I've found.
If this doesn' work you should consider to buy a truly graphic card if your board as AGP slot.

I've read a lot in the net for you,this chip is good for office application not for gaming.
And this is true for windows too!!

Good Luck

How do I do that stuff for x11 and xorg and stuff?

direct rendering says yes and I don't think I saw anything about software.

What version of linux are you using? it's pretty much the same process for all distro's, but I'd help if I knew which one you use.
