Let's Play: SuperTuxKart
Welcome to my first native Linux game comparison! Let's take a look to this free Mario Kart clone game: SuperTuxKart!
A hard choice... Or not?
Of course there's no hard choice this time. There are a native Linux client (one for each existing Linux distribution), a Windows client and a MAC OSX client, and since we're talking about Ubuntu, your choice is only one!
Talking about performances...
First of all, my hardware:
cpu: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+
distro: Ubuntu 11.04 natty
soundcard: NVidia CK804 with ALC850 at irq 22
soundcard_driver: ALSA Version 1.0.23
videocard_driver_version: 3.3.0 NVIDIA 275.09.07
videocard_manufacturer: NVIDIA Corporation
videocard_type: GeForce 8600 GTS/PCI/SSE2
x_version: X.Org X Server 1.10.1
Alright, let's take a look to the (very few) differences of performances between Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit version, Chakra 2011.09 (edn) 32-bit version and Windows 7 64-bit version:
Well, i think you should have wondered that. Being a native linux client provided game, performances are perfect in every OS. Performances are great on Chakra even those high numbers.
Conclusion: the game runs GREAT on Ubuntu.
The process takes about 15 minutes (including download time).
