A smoother, slicker, faster and more high quality gaming experience in every aspect, Cedega 6.0 has brought a whole new level to Linux gaming. But as we all know, supporting new technologies means nothing without the games. So here’s the part you’ve been waiting for: Cedega’s top-voted game, Oblivion, is now fully supported in Cedega 6.0. You no longer have to rely on Oldblivion to play this game; it now works out of the box with 2.0 Shaders. Next in line, World of Warcraft has been getting updates throughout the Cedega 5.2 releases, but with Cedega 6.0’s performance improvements, it feels like a brand new game. Civilization IV benefits from decreased load times and has had a number of bugs and memory issues resolved. Half-Life 2 will be looking and running better than ever, while a number of fixes have kept Steam easy to use despite frequent updates by Valve. We’ve also added support for a number of additional triple-A titles like top hits Need for Speed: Carbon, Madden NFL 07 and Battlefield 2142
Faster file handling, faster load times, and shorter level transitions mean you get more time playing and less time waiting. Since you’ll be spending more time playing, we felt providing FBO improvements that give you even better graphical performance was absolutely essential. You will just plain have a better overall experience in a large number of games. To top it all off, an improved multimedia timer means less of your CPU time is spent mixing and manipulating sound, leaving more for your games and further maximizing your overall experience.
