-> Joining games;
-> Hosting games;
-> Changing video configuration in-game;
-> Steam overlay UI;
-> DX 9.0c;
-> Downloading custom mods and plugins while joining a server;
What does not
-> Sometimes starts with broken UI in KDE4 (i have to try with other desktop environments);
What was not tested
-> Joining many multiplayer games, since i've tried just a couple of games.
As i said before, framerate is lower than in Windows, about 40-70 unstable fps while in Windows are over 70 fps stable. About the UI: sometimes the games runs with broken UI, i think is a compatibility problem with KDE4 and KWin 3D effects, i'll make new tests with other desktop environments. My hardware configuration: Intel Core i5 750 at 2.67 Ghz, 4 GB of RAM and ATI HD5830 with 1 GB of VRAM and installed ATI fglrx drivers.

If you would like Day of Defeat: Source to get more attention please vote for it!
So some things I've noticed that you need to get Day of Defeat to run better are:
Q: It seems that dod source works once steam as been installed as it is
said in the steam section. But once dod is launched, steam stays in
focus and obstruct the screen. When I try to lower the steam window,
everything freezes and I must reboot the PC, the keyboard is not
Whats going on?
A: One of the known bugs with steam is that it always is on top and cannot be minimized, or else the system crashes. So if the steam window is still on your screen when you start your game, simply X out of it instead of trying to minimize it.
