    Thanks Michael.

    Download link for Linux can be found here: https://www.epicgames.com/unrealtour...sted-5-16-2017

    After unzipping:

    1. $ cd LinuxNoEditor/Engine/Binaries/Linux
    2. $ chmod +x UE4-Linux-Shipping
    3. $ ./UE4-Linux-Shipping UnrealTournament

    To use an alias for easy launching (update path to match your setup, I place the "LinuxNoEditor" folder in ~/Games and renamed it to "UT"):

    $ alias ut
    ut='(cd ~/Games/UT/Engine/Binaries/Linux && exec ./UE4-Linux-Shipping UnrealTournament)'

    Side note: Are patches available for these updates? Or do we have to re-download the entire 10GB file each time?

      Since you don't test games you write about: the Linux version has a lot of issues, not worth playing atm.

        I was at first unable to get the game running, but after I forced Mesa to override the OpenGL version then it worked. Unreal Tournament requires OpenGL 4.3.

        $ export MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.3

            Why do they distribute the game via a zip file? Don't they know that it's going to screw with the permissions? Horrible first impression.

              Good example why Linux needs one standard for some sort of user level simple so called "setup.exe" that is easy to use. Biggest stopper for Linux adaption is that NO STANDARDS.

                There are RUN files since forever.

                  Better to do it better than Setup.exe though, as it is a very crappy and unsafe way.

                  It's especially fun when uninstallers fail and you need to go delete shit manually or use third party tools to clean up.

                    setup.exe isn't exactly a standard either.
                    There's a quadrillion ways to generate them and even more to configure them.

                    NSIS alone is probably home to a few thousand unique scripts, a lot of which are just copy&paste jobs from half a dozen different sources.
