30 minutes of Galaxy on Fire 2 THD running on a Nexus One

Posted by Dan Mousavi On June - 16 - 2011

When I did a review on Burning Tires a while ago I already mentioned that I was really looking forward to Galaxy on Fire 2 on Android. I was a little disappointed, when they told me at MWC that the standard version is Xperia Play exclusive and that the advanced Tegra Version is of course only available for Tegra devices, so I planned to postpone to play it until I upgrade my handset (which will be when Google releases a worthwile successor to the Nexus One).
Then Chainfire3D was released and while some games worked with it on the Nexus One, I doubted that Galaxy on Fire 2 would run.
But with the newest version of Chainfire3D Pro and reduced texture quality, the game runs nearly flawless!
Of course the game looks even better on Tegra devices, but to play this advanced version on a N1 is something you should have seen.
So here are the first 30 minutes + the Chainfire 3D settings in a video demonstration, all of this still takes place in the free part of the game, so everyone who has a Android device that works with Chainfire3D can check out how it runs on their device for free themselves.

Fishlabs just released their popular Sci-fi shooter Galaxy on Fire 2 for Tegra devices. This version of the game has 4 times as much details in the textures and a higher polycount, which enhances this already great game with cutting edge visuals on Tegra devices. You can download the game for free, but to unlock the full version, you will have too pay $14.99 / €11,99 / £8.99 via in-app purchase.

Here’s the market link and a video of the Tegra Version I shot at MWC, you can find the full press release in german below.

Tegra Games now playable on non Tegra devices

Posted by Dan Mousavi On May - 24 - 2011

There is a new tool out called Chainfire 3D, which is an intermediary OpenGL driver, that hooks into your rooted OpenGL ES 2.0 capable phone (pretty much every phone with over 1Ghz).
These drivers are much faster than the normal ones and make even Tegra 2 games playable on older devices.
Lars Hacker was kind enough to test this out for us and here is a video of him playing Samurai Vengeance II and Pinball HD on a Nexus One.

If you want to try them out yourself, you can find more information at the source at XDA
