    Default The Future Of UT3 On Linux Appears Uncertain

    Phoronix: The Future Of UT3 On Linux Appears Uncertain

    While there are great open-source games like Nexuiz and XreaL, a title many Linux gamers have been waiting years for has been Unreal Tournament 3. Prior to the game launching, a Linux client was confirmed and that famed developer/porter Ryan Gordon was porting the UT3 engine. When the game launched, the Linux client was missing in action and even the Linux server build...

    I heard UT3 likes players to have SM with GameSpy ( Yes! I want to register again! Do it! )

    Good old passing the buck. First 3rd party middleware was blamed, then epic, now Ryan. Svartalf your next on the list. :P Seriously, you can tell they don't give a crap about the client when you have to pass the buck just to find out what is going on. Hopefully Ryan reads that response email and comments on it.

    I don't hold out much hope though seeing that they are still trying to get even a stable UT3 2.0 linux server going.

    At this point, I highly doubt we'll ever see the Linux client. I think the most important question is: when/if it's released, will anyone still care?

    reading in to Epic's reply, I can't help thinking that this situation will constantly hinder ports until the big game companies get skills in-house. Fresh blood is needed in the Linux gaming scene, Ryan does do good work but he is only one man and I'm pretty sure he is not thinking about living/doing this forever........

    I just wish I was better at coding and I could start contributing to Linux
