    UT2004


    i noticed a file named something like linuxinstall.sh in the main install directory when i installed UT2004 on my Home computer (not the one metioned at the end of this message). Does that mean that UT2004 will install and work under Linux?

    btw, UT2004 is very sluggish under my windows system even though it has decent specs

    I have heard that UT2K4 should work nice in linux, but I don't have the CDs so I never tryed... Try to install it, then you'll find out about it

    It will install under linux (I've done the install, but not for quite a while). However, looking at the specs you have listed in your sig, I'm not surprised that the game doesn't run well. Your sig says you have a TNT2 and 128Mb of memory; that's pretty low for today's games.

    ive done it before onredhat fc2 and with a gforce 5200. it worked well exept for the large outdoor enviorments, thats when it realy got slow. but other than that its perfect. if you have a 64bit proccessor there is a 64bit linux installer. something windows doesnt have

    Windows do have a 64bit version, but it's more like a "Windows BSoDeluxe"... I actually thought they were making a 64bit version for it to run smoother the 32bit

    Ive had games running in FreeBSD actually (UT GOTY, Quake 3) I love it when they release linux clients, because I can always get them working on my FreeBSD Box.

    ive got UT GOTY, UT 2003 (slower than UT2004 by a mile) and UT2004.

    they are all Windows versions except UT2004 (which im told is both Win and Linux)

    is there any modifications that i need to do to UT GOTY to make it work under linux (except maybe to get Wine working)

    No just download the loki installer, and your all set.
