Cool


i don't play halo2 , i mean, i play, but at my cousin's house on the weekends, and i gotta say it sucks, halo one dominates and kicks much more ass than halo2.

halo2 might have the graphics and the new features but it doesn't beat halo pc. i guess i'm old school. lol

Seems to me like that's the way most people feel about it. I like Halo 2 but I think I liked the original better. The only things I like better about Halo 2 are the sword and the fact that you can dual-wield.

for me:
Battlefield-versions
MOH-versions
and actually all new popular games. Games are almost the only reason for me to keep wasting part of my machine to a Windows boot...

Pro Evolution Soccer series rocks
And Civilization series also...

btw wouldn't there be any Unreal Tournaments or (going back to the past) Counter-Strike? I don't really play fps, but I think those two are great games.

All versions of Unreal Tournament have native linux client. UT2004 runs great for me. I personally find it to be an excellent investment as far as linux gaming because of all the mods available. It's like having 15 different games. There are racing mods, counterstrike style mods, kid's game type mods, airship mods, Western mods.... the list goes on and on.

Another good game if you enjoy counterstrike would be Enemy Territory (Free as in Beer!) with the True Combat Elite Mod. Enemy Territory is also very good in it's own rights. Also Tremulous (a Quake 3 mod) should have a stand alone version sometime soon since the Quake 3 source is out.

I still want Half-Life and all the mods on Linux. Also, when I had Windows there was an HL mod I used to play quite often called "Natural Selection" and I believe they were thinking of making a proprietary version. . .

Why would it be that with Half Life all good mods go proprietary?? *sigh* happened with Counter Strike (most famous case), but it's been the case with others... In any case, Valve has the dedicated server for Linux for their games, they just refuse to release a native client version. With HalfLife 1 it would have been easier as it has an OpenGL renderer, whereas the Source engine relies on DirectX eclussively.

Actually, from what I remember of the HL2 demo, HL2 actually can use either OpenGL or DirectX so it might not be as reliant on DirectX as you'd think. It probably still needs DX for the sound though. But we've got SDL for some of that kinda stuff so if they really wanted to translate it they could.

I don't understand why they don't make a *NIX compatible version of both - they could gain both OSX and Linux users from it (as well as people who use BSD and other systems) with relatively few modifications between these different versions.

And actually, NS *isn't* going proprietary - they're making an entire new version of it for retail sale, and it'll probably have a campaign mode and storyline and stuff. The original NS will still be freely available from Unknown Worlds as it always has been

I ran the game in Linux through Cedega, back in the day... And I certainly don't remind any OpenGL renderer... Couldn't say about any patches, because I never updated the program, and what's more I never installed it again (even though I own a legit copy), so I can't say if it does have an OpenGL renderer or not. I remember, though, the meny being impossibly complicated to modify the graphics options (at least when running through Cedega).

I just signed up and this forum caught my eye. I love the concept of this forum! I saw a bunch of "Counter-Strike" and I'd like to see native Half-Life(HL1 engine) and Half-Life2(Source engine). Once the engines are native, any of the many mod's for it would work. A long time ago, I thought I heard that they were going to have Half-Life2 in a linux version but I guess the rumor was wrong.

The rumor wasn't without basis, though - I think it was based on the HL2 source code leak. A couple years ago someone stole the code for Quake III Arena and made a Linux version and told id Software that he/she would release the code if id didn't make his Linux version available or make their own Linux version. At least that's what I heard

I think someone should do this for HL/HL2 - even though HL is five years old or so, there's no shortage of people who play it or some of its mods. In fact, you can still buy it at Best Buy, I believe. It would really show businesses the potential of Linux gaming if they could see how many people are using the Linux patch. Look at id - they released a Linux patch for Q3A, and ever since then they've been releasing Linux patches for all their games - and even going so far as to open-source their older game engines (even before Q3A was open-sourced, id had open-sourced the original DOOM, Quake 1 & 2, and Wolfenstein). I'm sure it helped their sales - and maybe it even helped their sales enough that Raven Software was impressed and it made them decide to also release a Linux version of Q4.

World of Warcraft. It is already ported to OSx so should not be to much harder to port it to Linux.

FYI it does run well, in fact better, under Cedega on Linux then it does in Windows XP native, so Blizzard, would love to have a native port for Linux soon.
