Matrox.com: Linux-based gamers can now play Quake III Arena with Matrox G400

Dec 14, 1999, 20:33 (3 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Stephen Crowley for this link. ]

"Matrox Graphics Inc. today announced that Quake III Arena for Linux, published by Loki Entertainment Software, contains the OpenGL GLX driver developed by members of the Linux community and John Carmack of id Software. GLX is also available for download at www.matrox.com, where it will always be posted in its most recent build."

"GLX is the first driver to allow owners of Matrox G400 and G200-based graphics cards to play games based on the Quake engine, including Quake II and Quake III, on the Linux platform. It is the brainchild of dozens of Linux aficionados worldwide, who voluntarily began coding it in late 1998. John Carmack, creator of the Quake series, got involved in the project in the spring of 1999 after receiving numerous technical queries from Linux coders working from the public Matrox G200 chip specs."
