Games are running fine for me with the Nvidia driver and a GeForce4 Ti4200,
on a -stable system. Below is a list I made some time ago with the games
I can run successfully, with some notes. 'pcm' denotes the native FreeBSD
sound driver, 'OSS' the (commercial) driver by Opensound. I have plans to
make a website with this info as well as install notes and a forum for
asking questions; I don't know though if there is a lot of need for this.
Some time ago, the forum at swissgeeks closed down soon due to lack of
interest. Personally, I'd like some chit-chat about gaming on FreeBSD :-).
