    Phoronix: Unreal Engine 3 Now Sort Of Works On Linux

    Without Wine, it's now possible to run Unreal Engine 3 on Linux...

    i think its interesting how they managed to get this to work but i can't imagine it would perform sufficiently. what exactly were they hoping to accomplish by doing this anyway? why was this a higher priority than linux?

      ... when I don't have to install flash on linux any more I'll be happy.

        It's the first time that I didn't get disappointed that something is not available for linux, you may ask why??? Well, Flash is a shitty framework on its own, now running a game engine on top of it makes the outcome even shittier, I don't see any future for Unreal engine on top of flash. Flash is already dead(I mean it's dying), If they really wanted to waste their time and money they could do it in a more interesting way(like porting the whole damn thing to DOS!)

          I don't mind seeing proprietary frameworks such as flash dying but there is the issue of the vast amounts of content.

          Maybe google could help out the Gnash project with some donations and manpower?
          http://www.gnu.org/software/gnash/

          Now that flash will stop being a moving goal this becomes quite feasible.
          Maybe not quickly but in a few years we could have a perfect working gnash that supports most if not all flash content versions and features?

            Who cares? You can't play Unreal Engine 3 anyway. Plus, we have Unigine now.

              So they contained bad tech (ut3 engine...yes i know it has great development features, it just sucks to play on) in even worse tech ?

              No thanks, i'll just stick to wine if i ever want to run it.

                  1. Run epic Epic flash demo Epic Citadel
                  2. Run (alfa) full open source Javascript WebGL engine
                  3. Conclusion (performance, graphics features etc.)?

                    The 3D APIs will rely on DirectX 9 on Windows and OpenGL 1.3 on MacOS and Linux.

                      Yay for proprietary software joining up with open source software to create proprietary open source software...?

                      I'm really surprised more Linux users who actually give a shit about freedom aren't outraged by Google and Flash teaming up to try to force browser users onto Chrome, but then again most everyone hates Flash already. This will just help seal the deal. Still, some additional anger deserves to be cast Google's direction because of this.

                        I am. Have been avoiding Chrome like the plague, now I'm boycotting it. I don't like this vendor locking us into a single browser.

                          What would be kind of funny is if the plan backfired and made lots of users demand to be able to use Gnash or other Flash alternatives and this pushed Adobe to want to make sure those alternatives were better to keep Flash alive, maybe even inch closer towards making it an open standard.

                          Something tells me that probably won't happen though.

                            Something must be missing from Stage3D on Linux. I tried

                            http://www.deadcoats.com

                            But i do not see any enemies on Linux. They are there however on Win.

                              Call me when developers stop using the Unreal Engine and start using Unigine.
