Experience with Minetest and Puppy Lupu

by RAPHAEL » Thu Dec 15, 2011 18:53

Decided to post about my experience with Minetest 0.4dev and Puppy Linux Lupu and to also ask if anyone else is using Minetest on Puppy.

Basically to get it going I had to download libjpeg deb and Minetest Maverick deb. Updated graphics drivers and it loaded. However the FPS is 1. Yes 1. On Windows XP with DirectX FPS averages 20-40.

Is this an issue with OpenGL? I noticed OpenGL on Windows performs similar but with average FPS of 5-10.

Any known ways to speed it up so it can be played? I kinda like my portable Puppy Distro lol.

First, disable 3D clouds and new style water (keep it transparent, but don't make it lower than surface) - those 2 things take up a lot of resources.
Are you sure you are using closed source drivers?
What is your graphics card?

3d clouds and new style water was already disabled when I got the 1 FPS. As for the drivers I'm unsure of them. They were suggested for the graphics I have (integrated Intel). Yea not the best of graphics card for gaming but it works ok on windows with minetest lol.
