From Pete today: Oh well, that's graduation all done and I'm now back at work full time. Surprisingly though, because I'm not both studying and working, I've got a little more free time in the evenings!

After working so much with Quake, I felt quite fed up of looking at its code. I needed to work on something else.

So I've been beavering away on a PS3 Linux version of Cave Story and I'm happy to say it's nearly done. This is a fresh port based on Pixel's source code, instead of the earlier SDL/GP2X/x86 Linux port by Simon Parzer and I. There were a few things which I wanted to do a little differently in the code to make it more portable to systems which didn't have SDL, such as the iPhone or WiiWare.

Those ports sadly fell through, but because Pixel gave Simon and I permission to port to Linux, I thought it would be a nice idea to port to this particular flavour of Linux that a few folks may have in their living rooms.

But anyway, I still need to do a few things before I can release it:

* Get my wireless controller working in Linux.
* Make a configuration file which maps the...

StreamMyGame.com offers its members the flexibility to use their 2D applications installed on a main PC on any other PC or Linux device in their home or home office. The application does not need to be installed on the remote PC/device. Their applications can be viewed at HDTV resolution and two people can simultaneously use the same application making it easy to collaborate.

All 2D applications can be used including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, XP Media Center and even Photoshop along with commercial applications such as MYSQL Administrator and SAP's Database Manager.

Gamers who use Valve's Steam network can now use StreamMyGame to remotely see Steam's 2D launcher. They can start games such as Half Life 2, Counter Strike Source and Team Fortress and then record, broadcast and stream them, even to the PlayStation 3.

339w ago - StreamMyGame announced today the release of its free Linux Player, an application that enables you to play any PC game via a PlayStation 3 running Linux.

PS3 GPU Use in Linux Video available!

50°
345w ago - CNLohr shared this video of the recent PS3 Linux 3D Graphics access progress. This is an example of code running on Linux, under the hypervisor talking to the Nvidia RSX (video card) on the PlayStation 3. This is done entirely without proprietary drivers.

Shown is 3 animated quads, drawn in immediate mode as well as a series of triangles in the background drawn using an index buffer. This demo is a modified version of IronPeter's libps3rsx running via patched 2.6.24 experimental, unofficial kernel on Gentoo Linux.





Until recently, not enough was known about how to use the RSX to make any headway to usable, free access to the 3D contexts on the GPU on the PS3. With some work, homebrew developers may soon be able to write their own 3D applications.
