    Propietary games that worked with open drivers. [list]

    I search in forum for some thread with title words - Proprietary games & opendrivers works well.

    I can't find some good info so im start this post to give my good experiences with a opendrivers provide by Linux Ubuntu in my case radeon drivers with games that require some 3D aceleration and games that have a proprietary license:

    My list of games work with open-drivers is:

    4x4 evolution
    Doom3
    Fifa 99
    Pharao (without sound)
    COmandos
    NBA Live 2003
    Need for Speed Most Wanted
    Need for Speed Underground

    Others games i tested:
    Medieval total war but dont appear image, works but the graphics dont work properly.

    So my intention is to leave this info here and invite you to post in this thread your good experiences with games (proprietary licensed).

    Thanks for your participation.

    When I had a Toshiba laptop with ATI x1200 graphics, supported only by open source drivers, I played Neverwinter Nights very well indeed.

    I am currently running Chrubuntu on an Acer C7, using open source drivers for the Sandy Bridge Celeron that powers this little slab, and I can play both Half-Life games, Portal and Bastion with this mighty mite. If I can figure out how GOG's version of Neverwinter Nights can be Linuxized, I'll install it too; I have a certain amount of confidence that it will work.

    Hmmm...now that I'm thinking about it, I can copy the Diamond DVD to a thumb drive...Aha!
