Link:  http://
Depends on  Qt 4.x
Downloads:  1117
Submitted:  Nov 11 2006
Updated:  Dec 9 2007

Description:

QGameX is a tool for launching games, optionally in a separated X11 session. It has a configuration GUI (QT 4), which is used for profile generation by setting certain options (see screenshots). The game itself can be simply run later by PROFILE=myprofile qgamex game-command game-args.

Compilation:
qmake (or qmake-qt4)
make

Then you may want to copy the resulting binary to your PATH.

***TIP***: Add nvidia-settings -l into the "commands to execute before running the game" field. It will apply your nVIDIA overclocking settings.




Changelog:

* version 1.1.1
keyboard map is now restored after the game exits (but not 100% reliable)
* version 1.1.0
support for new FSAA modes
program displays only the options available for the selected GPU
program can run a game in the existing X session too
* version 1.0.3
a running X server is no longer necessary for running a game
* version 1.0.2
increased program verbosity
* version 1.0.1
added an option "vblank sync to device"
* version 1.0
initial release

 how do you compile?

I have the Qt4 libraries and everything, I tried to compile it using:
qmake-qt4 -project
qmake-qt4
make

but when I run make it has loads of complaints, including:
qgamex.cpp:26:24: error: QDomDocument: No such file or directory

but I can't work out how to get it.

Use just qmake && make. The -project switch overwrites settings that include QT XML libs.

I don't understand.... what's the need
of launching games in a separate X
session? I can figure out only that
users with XGL may need that, cause
AIGLX doesn't needs at all.

I use a separate X session so I can switch back to the desktop easily without terminating the game.

MultiGPU mode also causes me some trouble in 2D, so I need to start another session for games (with MultiGPU enabled xorg config file).

Also, when the game crashes or freezes, you can simply switch back to your desktop, kill the game and x-server and start again without the need to hit the reset switch again for a reboot.

P.S.: Maybe such a mechanism could be added to this app? You could then just hit a button to kill the stuff. Finding the correct processes and additionally needed rights to terminate the frozen (different user/root?) x-server and game come to my mind.

I can not minimze some native linux games such as quake4, doom3 or ut2004.

I used xgame for that.
But this is much better thank you :)

Another use would be watching videos on a TV screen.

I use a different xorg.conf for everyday use than for watching videos with my card's tv-out, because I don't want to have to have cloned mode on all the time and be forced to use the low resolution that TVs support on my CRT.

However, I use xgame-gtk2 and a script I wrote for that ATM.


bash-2.05b# cat /dev/mem | strings | grep -i llama
Damn, my RAM is full of llamas!

That's weird. I'm not sure how can this happen.

Do you have "startx" in your PATH?

I am sure I do because I can type startx in a terminal to launch my initial X session.

I am embarrassed to say but I really don't know how to check that. Path is kind of a generic term to google form

Try running "which startx" from KDE if it just yields some path or says not found.

Then try this modified version that should be more verbose: http://dolezel.info/sub/projekty/qgamex-1.0.1-verbose.tar.bz2

I created on the log and made it read/writeable. (I will fix that later.) Then I got a tty0 error which was fixed in the same way.

I compared the two outputs (the one from root which works and the one as user that does not. I am starting with the last similar line)

Fatal server error:

Which is weird because I do use xorg

I think those were added with Qt 4.3, and designer now uses them, but they don't work on earlier qt versions.

Having the same problem with 4.2.1 but not with 4.3.

I like the Idea but not much the implementation.

IMHO the menu and the configurator should be more splitted and the menu should allow the use of screenshots/ thumbnails/icons for each game.

But that's not the way I like it :-)

The original idea is to use one profile for more games, not to have one profile per game. E.g. one profile for GPU intensive games, another profile for simple games etc.

Therefore screenshots and other stuff make no sense.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
