Heli-X and nvidia Optimus

Post by Lx386 » 11 Dec 2012 10:33

I have tried out the following to get optirun to start Heli-x with the Nvidia GPU.

optirun ./runHeli-X64.sh

or

optirun bash
./runHeli-X64.sh

I althoug tried to include optirun command in the .sh file but no luck so far. Heli-X always uses the internal intel GPU and has only 20 FPS. So it is not usable!
Does anyone have an idear how toget Heli-X 3d rendering to work with nvidia optimus cards under linux? Ohterwise the 50 Euro i spent to by this version are a waste of money.

I like the sim so i hope someone could helb me!

Hello,

I guess you should edit the startscript and substitute

java ...

with

optirun java ....

I had added the optirun command in the the .sh skript already.

now I had tryed it without the optirun command to use the nvidia card, now it is running on the nvidia card and i got 230 FPS, on the intel i only got 20 FPS. Somehow the optirun command seams to be not nessacary on the for heli-x on my laptop.

Thanks for the best Heli sim ever!
