Linux and the Unreal series
Posted 16 March 2004 - 03:15 PM
I have no idea at all about Linux, especially command lines, and I'm using these versions because they're similar to Windows (I know, I know...) and they seem to be a good starting point without having to rearrange my partitions (not much space left). Also, I'm on dial up, so downloading anything major (over a few megs) is a no go for now.
I have separate CDRW and DVD drives if that helps (Linux CD may need to be in one drive?). Can I just install these games straight from the CD, or do I need any extra files?
If I eventually decide to install Linux, I've got Corel Linux on CD and this months (March 2004) Linux Format DVD if that helps...
Sorry this is quite a long one, and thanks in advance for any help

Unreal is included on the Morphix-Gamers cd, which runs just like Knoppix. I've not tried it but you may want to check it out here...

The engine is availible through the debian repository, It's also suposed to run Heretic, which I like much better than Doom... I think I still have the origional disks .

Some people have mentioned wine and winex, do these come as part of the OS, or do they have to be downloaded?
Thanks for the help
You will far better off running it from the Linux port than going through Winex3 on this game. Winex3 should only be used on Windows games that there is no Linux port for. I read somewhere that you can import your profiles and saved games from an existing Windows version of Unreal to your new Linux version. It shouldn't be to difficult to do.
