I wish I got the appeal of that game as I’d love a simple and basic game where you just move blocks. Just a bit too minimal for me I guess though

In 1985 USSR where it was originated it was the most cutting edge stuff you’d ever seen in your life…that’s was always it’s main appeal :laughing:

Then in 1989 it became handheld for Gameboy, so it was pretty much same thing - cutting edge for it’s time and medium, while being very simple too! :upside_down_face:

From the blog post in Ekstrand’s own words:

All Vulkan drivers in Mesa trace their lineage to the Intel Vulkan driver and started by copying+pasting from it. My hope is that NVK will eventually become the driver that everyone copies and pastes from. To that end, I’m building NVK with all the best practices we’ve developed for Vulkan drivers over the last 7.5 years and trying to keep the code-base clean and well-organized.

So that’s exactly what Rosenzweig did, and it only took about a month to get it to the stage where it has reached Vulkan 1.3 conformance as listed on The Khronos Group website.

Showing once again the power of open source, to get a new driver going by re-using code.

Wow

Now I can’t have the full collection on GOG because I delayed in buying Xtreme and Black Hawk Down because I believe its overpriced.

Well…technically you can have those GOG versions for about 0$…just not from GOG store.

What does sharing videogames between friends have to do with robbing naval and/or merchant vessels or other watercraft? :confused:

Interesting benchmark solution by Blender. Should be equivalent to Cinebench but uses Blender internal engine to render images.

I was positively surprised that my CPU ran 20% faster than average for this model. Probably platform difference, since 80% of users are not on linux.

I did a brief run on LTS, arch and zen kernel. No performance difference compared to LTS. No big surprise, since LTS is 6.6 .
