After a few problems I got Cube to work and it is good. Hard but not as hard as Nexuiz. Thanks Wouter van Oortmerssen. :)

  Good game for fragfests posted by FreeSoftWorks @ on Aug 2 2007 10:24 PM 333
It's a quite fun game for a fragfest, though the somewhat underdeveloped singleplayer lacks a real challenge for those seeking for a change of pace, that's why I only gave it 3 Stars(Good game).

However, I think there are too much Open-source "quake-like" and mostly multiplayer-oriented games already. I would rather see a FPS project which intends to develop an AI like the one of the Marines in Half-life 1 or of the Skaarj in Unreal 1, or which intends to be a FPS + RPG hybrid, like System Shock(1 and 2) and Deus Ex 1. I know "quake-like" seems to be more popular, but I believe many seek a more unique FPS game, because honestly, in such genre, most if not all Open-source games are several variations of quake. They are fun, but it tends to get old.

What does: "Your processor does not have a supported Cube client." mean, when I ./cube_unix????
  Re: Problem posted by Anonymous @ on May 25 2006 4:38 AM  
I'm experiencing that too. I'd like to recompile it for 64bit. There's someone in #sauerbraten irc is able to run it.

runs fine here (debian etch sempron 1.6, nvidia 6100 , 512 ram) How do i setup mouse sensibility?
  Re: quake like game posted by straver @ on May 5 2006 12:22 PM 55555
In game press 't' to bring up the console. Then you can change the mouse sensitivty with '/sensitivity number'

Or you can change the default value in config.cfg.

It runs very very smoothly on my ubuntu box (Celeron 2.4GHz, 512 ram, Gforce 64MB card MX 4000), far more smoothly than quake2 But unfortunately it is notvery stable. In SP mode it crashes with no warning after 2 - 5 minutes. Sometimes when I go to the menu it siezes up and I have to restart gnome. I run it on my mac mini (256MB RAM) too. It is not as smooth as on the linux box, but doesn't crash. Any ideas on why it crashes?
  Re: Cube posted by kerm @ on Feb 26 2006 11:42 AM  
I uninstalled the game for that very reason. The version before was extremely stable for me as I would play for hours on end. Depiste my best efforts at detailing the problem to them, as well as others, they simply don't seem to believe there exists a problem.

There must be some way to get them to look at this and rectify the situation. It's hard to understand and explain why the crash occurs since the gameplay seems fine up until everything just eventually freezes. It wouldn't be so bad if I could just have closed and restarted Cube but it would freeze my entire system and I would have to hard boot.

I am using Ubuntu (Breezy Badger) as well and Nvidia geforce MX 400 with hardware acceleration.
