Secret Maryo Chrinicles
I downloaded and installed Secret Maryo Chronicles (SMC) a Super Mario clone (yes, I am a hopeless nostalgic).
Anyway, it doesn't run too well. The sound plays fine, but the video is W A Y T O O S L O W.
I move the mouse, count to five, and the cursor moves on the screen.
So, what gives?
Here is the site for the game: Secret Maryo Chronicles - News
Please give simple answers, I'm still a noob.
I notice on the site it mentions that the game uses OpenGL rendering. Have you installed 3D drivers for your video hardware yet? That might be your problem.Registered Linux user #270181
How do I check that?
You can open a terminal window and type glxgears. The program will launch some gears in a window and print out your frames per second. Report those numbers back here. Do you know what kind of video card you have?Registered Linux user #270181
My video card is the onboard Intel card:
Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller
Here is the FPS output:

Intel Linux Graphics: Downloads
There may be an easier way to do this. I've never installed drivers for an Intel chip before.Registered Linux user #270181
I already have the Intel driver installed, and I have Mesa 7.0.2.
<edit> I think I have the Intel driver installed. In the MCC under Hardware it tells me that the X server I am using is "Intel 810 or later". And that is where I got the information on the card from the previous post.
Also, when I started the game I got this:
Warning : OpenGL Version 1.300000 below optimal version 1.4 and higherCode:
Last known SDL Error : OpenGL attribute is unsupported on this system
If I need to install a newer version of OpenGL, which one? On the package manager there are a lot...
