Lost Sky runs slow on Ubuntu

I guess we can as well start creating these Linux issues now too. The game runs really slowly on my computer on Linux. Especially when lots of graphics are moving such as the fireball spell animation.

I believe that this issue will be challenging to fix as the game is highly dependent on Pygame and it's algorithms.

    Old issue and probably old pygame version. Maybe one should ask for more Ubuntu test? Do you think it would be relevant?

    Best regards,

    I've tested it on the same system (Windows 7 and Ubuntu), and I don't think this is an OS dependent problem. Also this was filed in 2010 before we made a major upgrade to the sprite animation system.

    Pygame is unfortunately not GPU accelerated, so we're kind of operating at the limitations of our library at this point.
