    You prove the exception obviously, but any FPS player knows what hitscan is. Lightning Gun, Rail Gun, most "bullet" firing guns in about any game (especially older ones) save stuff like Armed Assault or Stalker. It's stuff that isn't projectile based, which is to say not rockets, plasma balls, grenades or balistically modelled bullets that you have to lead with. And people in this thread are not making up that meaning for it.

    But what the hell am I posting links for? Google is available to anyone.
    Umm I have been playing FPS since back in the Amiga days and I have never heard of Hitscan...

I remember how pissed off I got at Bioware after only a month of no client after going out and purchasing a copy of NWN on release day.
      Even then Bioware handled that so much more gracefully with regular status updates.

      • Maybe icculus is working on many things at once and he wasn't as contractually in a hurry for UT 3 as for others (I am guessing according to his impressive list of ports from his resume). Whenever the port is gonna come, I'm happy and I just wish for top notch porting quality, i.e. achievable highest quality settings on Linux and bug-free play.

          Same here, the time it has taken is like a very bad movie but i hope as well that they take a little more time and release a quality port, after all what is the point of rushing it now after so long. at least this is an update....

            Ryan's a busy guy. Heh... I don't do half as much as he does and I'm busy myself.

            Odds on, when the middleware fubar occurred, things pretty much went to hell in a handbasket on him and Epic. In this case, it's not that Ryan's incapable- typically, the man could sort out a mess like this in a couple of months' time if he was doing it as paid work and was fully focusing on it... This delay's...unusual for him and I don't think it's really in his court on this one.

                  • How cool is this… Phoronix is reporting that Epic’s Linux/Mac guy, Ryan Gordon, has confirmed that there will infact be a Linux client for Unreal Tournament 3 at launch. It won’t be on the media in the box, but it can be downloaded from their site for free and you just pop the Windows version of the game in the drive to play.

                    Also worth noting is that the client will be optimized for multi-core machines and the UnrealEd software they ship for map editing is already build using the cross platform C++ widget library wxWidgets; making a port to Linux even easier.

                          • If the game finally gets released, what exactly should the community do? I'd say ignore it, but that could be interpreted as there's no interest for their games; on the other hand, if you buy it, you're showing support for the product, but you may also be saying that you'll buy anything no matter how later/crappy. Am I over thinking this, or is a realistic scenario?

                                That is completely stupid. Everybody knows aliens use Plan 9.
