has anyone tried to run linux version of OpenLara on MiSTer?
I went ahead and bought the Steam version for $1 --> https://www.humblebundle.com/store/tomb-raider-i
OpenLara was trivial to compile and run under the MiSTer LXDE environment.

Thank you for explaination. I wasn't aware MiSTer's CPU is so weak. In my mind this ARM A9 800MHz CPU is much faster than 486DX 120MHz which run DOS version of TR1 just fine.
Yes, you are very correct - HPS would certainly run circles around a 486DX 120mhz, the issue is the "nix" version of OpenLara uses OpenGL which is emulated slowly.
I think it still could potentially work though because the project does target other platforms that are slower than the HPS and don't have OpenGL...
I don't see a SDL 1.2 target. That would be ideal.
