Primal Carnage Says Goodbye To Unigine

Filed under
Gaming

While many Linux gamers were looking forward to seeing the Primal Carnage game on Linux in the coming months, it looks like you may have to guess again, at least for a launch in tandem with the Microsoft Windows version. The developers have now switched from the Unigine Engine to using the latest Unreal Engine, which puts its Linux fate into question.

In the latest blog post by the developers of Primal Carnage, they show off new screenshots of this game... The only problem? It's now running off the Unreal Development Kit (Unreal Engine 3) rather than the Unigine Engine, which they were using before and promised a Linux client.

PC games

Is there still someone gaming at the PC? It's got a very low cool factor nowadays.

re: pc games

Me for one. I hate consoles.

But that's the uncool in me. I can't do much with those goofy controllers. I learned using a keyboard and mouse and I'm too old to learn the new tricks of the tiny hand-held controllers. Tongue

But there are so few games for pc anymore - especially Linux. That's why it's a big deal when one comes along - like that Amnesia release last month. It was big celebration time here. Big Grin

re: cool

How is being a mindless drone, and playing the same cheap ass console that every other teeny bopper plays, cool?

But don't get me wrong - I love that consoles exist - it keeps the low lifes out of the PC ONLY online games.

Well

I was talking about staying at home playing electronic games in general... it was not PC vs. console.

Me, I'm stuck with the MAME emulator every now and then, for that little nostalgia of when I was a teenager and spent all my afternoons at the bar wasting coins with the arcade machine, smoking and drinking. I still do the latter, I get sick without my glass(es) of wine.

Linux 5.9 RC7

  • Linux 5.9-rc7
    So we finally have all the issues I know about sorted out - the fix
    for the VM issue I mentioned in the rc6 announcement is here, as is
    the fix for the slab corruption issue that was separately discussed,
    along with another silly page locking bug one-liner fix.
    
    But while I do now know of any remaining gating issues any more, the
    fixes came in fairly late. So unless I feel insanely optimistic and/or
    a burning bush tells me that everything is bug-free, my plan right now
    is that I'll do another rc next Sunday rather than the final 5.9
    release. And btw, please no more burning bushes. We're kind of
    sensitive about those on the West coast right now.
    
    Anyway, while the MM side is what kept me on my toes last week, most
    of the changes here are actually drivers and networking. And
    networking drivers. With a small smattering of documentation and
    filesystem fixes and other noise thrown in.
    
    Shortlog appended, but what I really hope you all will do is to give
    it a nice good testing. One extra week or rc kernels will help, but
    only if people actually try this out.
    
    So.. Please?

  • Kernel prepatch 5.9-rc7

    The 5.9-rc7 kernel prepatch is out for testing. "But while I do now know of any remaining gating issues any more, the fixes came in fairly late.

  • Linux 5.9 Stable Expected In Two Weeks, But For Now Is Linux 5.9-rc7

    Linus Torvalds just released Linux 5.9-rc7 as the newest weekly test candidate for Linux 5.9. Due to the regressions encountered this cycle and prominent issues being resolved late, he's looking at releasing Linux 5.9 in two weeks time rather than next week.
