Choose to be a commander and you will play an in-depth RTS managing the stronghold, or choose to be a warrior and you will play an intense game of first person combat. With the creation of a new game play genre, RTSS (Real Time Strategy Shooter), Savage expertly redefines the first-person shooter and real-time strategy genres by combining elements of both into one cohesive experience. As the commander in RTS mode, you will tackle resource management, develop a robust tech tree, plan your assault and lead real human players into battle. As a warrior in action mode, you will master many unique weapons, powerful units, and siege vehicles to fight a fast paced battle.

Set in a unique fantasy world eons from now where Humans and Beasts battle violently for their very existence. Savage transports PC gamers to the next level in multi-player gaming. Choose to fight on the side of HUMANITY, armed with science and technology, or take the side of the BEAST HORDE, masters of nature and magic. Each race has its own style of battle, its own leader, and its own way to victory. Which side are you on?

The bug tracker is full of bugs old and new that are not related to your issue.

What Intel drivers are you using? The latest binaries from Intel's website?:

We don't support anything else because the open source drivers do not support S3 texture compression which has a proprietary license.

Have you the libs to run 32bit applications installed?

Ubuntu on Intel HD 3000 working here on my laptop. Rather than using the comments section I'd advise creating a post in our tech support forum or searching there for people that have had similar issues and solved them.

Yes, i'm using the xorg-edgers ppa, and i have lib32. It's really strange. I just made Desura verify the files and update again, but it seems to be working fine(the files are fine, not the game properly).

Nothing helpful there. What do the last few lines of: ~/.savage/debug.log say?

Looks like the available graphics video modes are not being reported correctly via your driver. The client is trying to use a 0x0 pixel resolution with 0bit depth. Try editing the game/startup.cfg and setting:
setsave vid_mode 1

Failing that try setting the res by hand using setsave vid_mode* variables.

o0 it worked!!!! Thank your very much! >D it was set vid_mode 11 before! Maybe it came like that in the desura download... Thus, would be good a update? You know, for next downloads and new users...

I think that must be a problem local to your system, testing a fresh install here does not exhibit you issue.

I glad you got it working, have fun playing the game :-)

I've been playing this game for about 18 months now and it's awesome. Each team has one commander, who plays the game like an RTS and coordinates team strategy. The rest of the team play on the field: mining, building, scouting and fighting (the combat is a combination of shooter and melee). I love the distinct teams (human and beast), the melee combat is the best I have experienced in an online game & the RTS commanding aspect is unique.
