    Phoronix: One Year Later There's No UT3 Client For Linux

    It was one year ago to the day that Unreal Tournament 3 had shipped in North America. This title created by Epic Games was originally supposed to come with the Linux binaries on the game's DVD but that didn't happen and the UT3 Linux server arrived a month late...

            I seriously doubt UT3 will have the linux version get past the legal department, because last i knew some middle ware was causing issues.

              Well, in any case, i'd like to personally thank Michael Larabel and the entire Phoronix site and team, as well as everyone who posts and browses these boards, for providing a great place for linux users to vent their frustrations at the lack of a linux client for ut3 freely, and to provide (mostly) "constructive criticism". Great job guys!

                Epic is that woman that strings a guy along for months on end, a tease, that never commits. Dump the bitch IMO.

                  Yes, thank you Phoronix for providing a place where we can discuss this issue without worry of censorship. Thank you for commenting on this issue from time to time, and for consistently providing us with high quality articles on many subjects.

                    At least a woman like that will flash her cleavage every once and while and keep insisting that they exist.

                      Nothing to see here, only a 1 year-old mummy. Move along people, move along...

                      Is not like other titles get ports well after their first anniversary (point in case, Prey), however, how are the news managed is a whole other story. Pretty much all of us didn't knew about the Prey port until Ryan made it public with the Demo (i.e, having some binaries to show us how the game actually runs).

                      Is not like I despise Epic all of a sudden, but I certainly will take their announcemnts with the Rock of Gibraltar mother of all grains of salt... Not that I didn't take their PR chit-chat with the table condiment before either, though.

                        It is really funny that there exits screenshots of a running UT3 engine but it is still not available. Certainly most gamers have at least a Win partition on a pc, but it would be really nice to play more games inside Linux. Wine is interesting and you would not even need all ports when it runs with it good enough, but usually native is faster - which can be really critical when you want to play online shooters. And Wine + UT3 is really no good combination... If they would at least add the OpenGL renderer to the Win version it would be a good idea, so Wine would run faster...

                          (hic) I'm drunk already. (hic) Drunk of the tears. If I weren't darn cheap I'd send CliffyB a card thanking him for a Linuxless year from the Linux community. lol

                            You know that times are looking pretty dismal when the producer, Jeff "Wartourist" Morris, abandons ship (or thrown off it).

                              Did not think about that, but right that's also no good sign. I really hope that ID software will provide at least a Linux client for their next game engine. ID is really my favorite company as they open sourced their older engines which lead to really cool games. I don't think they lost any money because of that but made lots of friends. UT3 seems to be a really good example how you should NOT do it. 3rd party code usally does prevent open sourcing and could be one reason that there exists still no Linux client.
