I haven't been around for ages... I managed to get ArtRage 2.5 to run under Wine back when it first came out. Naturally I'm interested in AR3 too I bought ArtRage Studio Pro with the update discount a while ago, I was just too busy to actually upgrade and 2.5 does most of the things I want it to already. But before I try to get AR3 to run under Wine (I'm quite busy so it might not be soon...) I have a question for those of you who've already set it up.
I'm worried about performance issues. The watercolor brush in particular looks like it might eat my tablet PC for lunch! I have a Thinkpad X60T and ArtRage 2.5 works quite well under Wine (with occasional lag for large brushes).
So can anyone try this - make an image 1600px*1200px*150 dpi (that's really the smallest I can get sizewise for my current project), try to use watercolors and post your hardware config? I'm really curious as to how slow it gets, especially on portable devices.
I tried AR3 under Windows and I think I can do without the other new features on my laptop for the time being (my desktop is dual boot so I can just run Windows) so if the watercolors are slooooow then I think I'll wait for a black boxes fix before upgrading from 2.5.
I'd be extremely thankful for any input it would save me a lot of time and it just takes a few minutes to check if you already have AR3 installed.
