  • [soon?] Soon Source Engine under Unix????

    Hi Guys today I browsed in the new Beta GCFs from CS Source Beta. It seems Valve planed to use the OSX Engine for UNIX (Linux). I found in the "counter-strike source beta engine.gcf" a file named "hl2.sh".

    This is the Code from the "hl2.sh"...


    Code:
        #!/bin/bash
         
        # figure out the absolute path to the script being run a bit
        # non-obvious, the ${0%/*} pulls the path out of $0, cd's into the
        # specified directory, then uses $PWD to figure out where that
        # directory lives - and all this in a subshell, so we don't affect
        # $PWD
         
        GAMEROOT=$(cd "${0%/*}" && echo $PWD)
         
        #determine platform
        UNAME=`uname`
        if [ "$UNAME" == "Darwin" ]; then
           # prepend our lib path to LD_LIBRARY_PATH
           export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH="${GAMEROOT}"/bin:$DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH
        elif [ "$UNAME" == "Linux" ]; then
           # prepend our lib path to LD_LIBRARY_PATH
           export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="${GAMEROOT}"/bin:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
        fi
         
        if [ -z $GAMEEXE ]; then
          GAMEEXE=hl2_osx
        fi
         
        ulimit -n 2048
         
        # and launch the game
        cd "$GAMEROOT"
         
        STATUS=42
        while [ $STATUS -eq 42 ]; do
            ${DEBUGGER} "${GAMEROOT}"/${GAMEEXE} "$@"
            STATUS=$?
        done
        exit $STATUS

    so this is entirely new?
    nice to see, I guess.

      Doesn't really mean much since they have now publicly stated the Linux Client isn't coming!

        The comment was about porting Steam, not about porting Source Engine.

          But you need Steam to be able to play CS:S no?

            I'm 99% sure this is old news. IIRC Michael even dedicated a whole news-post just to exactly this script, months ago.

              Actually the beta was only opened by valve recently, so it is odd they have that in there.

                It's still coming.

                  this whole situation makes me laugh.
                  valve denies the client.
                  michael insists that it exists.
                  personally, I believe michael, but the situation is amusing.

                    I am sitting on the fence on this one, mainly because you said the same things about AMD's info release for the varying Radeons and the increasing interaction we're seeing with AMD on the work there.

                    Not that it matters all that much to me- I've got other axes to grind right at the moment. More interesting times for Linux gaming is coming very soon.
