Why can't they make UT3 available to Linux then...
that pretty much tells this is community projectBuilding natively on Linux is not yet supported by Epic but some people on the forums and on GitHub have been trying to make it work based on the source code published on GitHub.
We've been discussing it on the forums and also on IRC at irc://irc.freenode.net/UE4Linux. If you'd like see working native Linux please jump in an join us.
What the heck do they use so that Win-to-Lin cross-compiling works, but native does not.
It seems that there are so many software companies out there that are just dominated by drooling idiots or something. Maybe that comes across too harshly, but we're talking about -- in the grand scheme of things -- relatively simple concepts where big-name companies consistently show extreme incompetence.
So I suppose it's just needed for Steamworks integration.
