Linux games (4, Funny)

So, a good game comes out for Linux, just after I give up my desktop w/GF3 for a laptop w/no 3d acceleration. Just my luck.

Is it really that good of a game? I thought UT2004=UT2003=old news. Its like Team Arena compared to Quake3. Shame shit, new levels.

Re:Linux games (1)

chris-johnson (45745) | more than 10 years ago | (#8271846)

I liked UT2k3, personally. Atleast for a while... It was just another deathmatch game in my opinion (though really fun to play sometimes). I'd atleast like to have the opportunity to see what UT2k4 is like, but oh well...

You're wrong. This one has vehicles. That's right, vehicles. And some new game modes. But.. Vehicles!! This isn't just the same as ut2003.

Re:Linux games (1)

chris-johnson (45745) | more than 10 years ago | (#8271891)

Actually, I believe UT2k3 did have vehicles, but they were sort of a hidden/easter-egg type thing... Not something eh developers/publisher went around advertising.

I feel your pain. The wife and I have been happily blowing each other away for a couple of months, ever since we picked up a copy of the original UT in a discount bin.

The original runs great on my laptop (16MB Radeon Mobility video), but UT2004 is barely playable under Direct3D, even at the lowest resolution and texture settings. Performance using the SW renderer was even worse.

As luck would have it, I recently upgraded HER machine with a 128MB Radeon 9200, and UT2004 runs like a champ there.

Guess she gets to win for a while :-)

OwP_Fabricated (717195) | more than 10 years ago | (#8272228)

I was never a fan of Unreal2k3 to begin with. The original UT was a masterpiece, and both Unreal2k3/4 feel like dumbed down Quake 3 clones IMO.

2k4's readdition of assault puts a smile in my heart, especially since they put in an actual sniper rifle instead of the awful, awful lightning gun, but most people are going to be playing the rather boring onslaught mode because of the vehicles (the new thing all FPS's MUST HAVE).

To me onslaught is just Unreal2k4 pretending it's Battlefield 1942 and Halo.

Epic: "Hey wait! Please don't go! We can put in vehicles too! See!? Please buy it....please? ......PLEASE?" ...god, I must sound really angry. Frownies.

I am the casual gamer. I'll probably only buy one FPS this year. But I'll enjoy it. I know this because I won't be the first person in line to purchase, so the reviews will have already come in and I'll know what's crap. There are a bunch of games due out this year, and as I said, I'll only be looking at one, as they are all similar from my perspective. At this point, (release issues aside) UT is MUCH more likely to get my purchasing dollars than HL2 simply because with UT I won't have to configure my PC to dual-boot into windows and go through that hassle. It's that simple.

No problem, a lot of people are confused by this so it's not like you're the first person to get this wrong. Let me clear it up for you.

You see, in the case of the Mac they can run games but won't run them before they've been properly beta tested by Windows users. Once enough of them have called for technical support and a majority of their problems have been worked out then, and only then will the Mac conceed to running a game.

Linux is like that too.

Sadly, there are still very few games for Linux and Mac, and even worse, some of the games that get ported to Mac, that are important to me, aren't compatible with the Windows versions (read: Everquest). Even when they are compatible in the network code, they're often gimped or less feature-filled for Linux and Mac (read: tools for NWN, bad server code for Q3 and UT for the Mac, which I personally beta tested and filed many bugs on that exact topic).
In the real game world right now, for most games, the best solution is to run Win98Lite for playing games, and Linux or FreeBSD for serving them.

Is the UT Linux client a "good thing"? Absolutely. I love Linux, run it on all my servers (and my desktop) at work, and I'd like to see some penetration to the home market.

But just because ONE new game has a Linux port doesn't mean I can throw my WinXP box out the window.

Personally, I'm waiting for the day when all my gaming needs are satisfied by consoles. *THEN* I can get rid of Windows and run Linux on my home PC. And I think console gaming is growing faster than Linux gaming.

Re:This is not right (3, Insightful)

feldsteins (313201) | more than 10 years ago | (#8272079)

I realize your comment is somewhat tounge-in-cheeck, but for others who could use a reality check: there have always been games for the Macintosh. True, it's nothing compared to the sheer number of titles available for Windows. True, the games that do appear often come out months after the Windows version. But the issue still stands: games of every kind, top-shelf titles not shareware wannabes, are available, have always been avaiable and show no signs of not being available in the future.

Linux, on the other hand, has a fundamental problem with regard to game development. One not direclty related to marketshare - the fact that it runs on PC hardware. Anyone with a PC running linux can also dual boot Windows. If they are gamers they are already doing so. Game developers are already selling a copy of their wares to these guys. They're selling them the Windows version. They gain nothing by developing for Linux and selling them a Linux copy instead. Virtually no increase in sales, no penetration into other markets, no new customers. Mac users represent a customer that they simply would not have had were it not for the development of a Mac port. See the difference?

This is why I worry about the Linux game market. I think there's a sentiment out there that the Linux game market is going to take off like a rocket...RSN. But I kinda doubt that for the reasons stated above.

What am I missing here?

OwP_Fabricated (717195) | more than 10 years ago | (#8272114)

Assault mode is back. Onslaught mode, simliar to capture-the-way-point like in Battlefield 1942 and Day of Defeat (HL mod) is addictive as caramal-covered crack bon-bons.

The weapons are already ridiculously balanced in the demo. The mini-gun is like the original UT. The gameplay feels like the original UT, and even the theme music is similar.

I love it.

The Mac platform now has the hardware (ok, we're waiting on 256MB GPUs) and the software to be a happy place.

A couple of years later it's Dual 2GHz G5 and 1.25GHz G4 Powerbook (for me anyway - there's a 1.33GHz available).

beegle (9689) | more than 10 years ago | (#8271979)

Does the linux version actually work on video cards that don't have the proprietary nVidia drivers?

UT2k3 relied on some X extensions that weren't available from XFree86. If you didn't have either one of the expensive versions of X or an nVidia card with the closed-source kernel module, you were out of luck.

Funny, those are the kind of messages I get from cheater wanna-bes -- when my current UT server leaves them at the curb. :)

From a dual 1.8 G5 user (5, Interesting)

I must say, I was impressed last night as I hosted a listen server with 14 bots and a friend (who was on a PC). Nice smooth framerate, no noticable CPU lag, and the netcode seems to be pretty damn solid.

Looking forward to the retail version, and many hours of cross-platform goodness. My PC friends might actually like me again.

I'd have more fun on my Dual 1.8 if I didn't suck so bad. But that's neither Apple's nor Epic's fault.

I am personally looking forward to the release of the game and the subsequent modding that will take place.

Driving around in a kick-ass pimp-mobile shooting hookers has never looked so good!

I'm surely no the only one thinking this right? Right???

Sign that yer a noskill g33k. You play any version of UT .. ID series is for the true hardcore :P Although it took them half a decade to figure out that gameplay is more important than 3d effect guns. Will be interesting to see how it plays.

I'm holding out (3, Funny)

I'm still holding out for the OS/2 Warp UT2k4 demo!

The OS/2 community will NOT disappear into the night without a fight!

Now I just need to figure out why my server won't get a matchid. (well it gets 0) Setup all the port directs and still it fails. I can connect just fine, but it wont show on the master lists. I also noticed that in CTF in 2k3 I thought it used to direct you to the flag(or the goal if you had the flag), now it just directs you to the blue/rd points no matter what.

Finally, Ryan Gordon has been fighting with a vehical bug in these all week...now that the demos are out he can finally get some sleep, so he is rested enough to finish the game for release!

Manta (1)

Linux is now complete. We have the capability to navigate small, one manned fighters down narrow trenches and run over hordes of people at 200 KPH.

Who needs Grand Theft Auto when you have Manta close-air-support flyers?

I dont think you can pull people out of their vehicles like in GTA3 though...

Mirrors anyone? (1)

Any /.er's got a mirror up for the Linux version?

Linux & Mac Users vs Windows Users? (5, Interesting)

Will I begin to see Linux & Mac clans forming solely to fight it out with Windows clans?
