Castle Wolfenstein, just get the patch from idsoftware, UT2003 is on the third CD (root)

BTW you may need to first extract the paks with wine or in Windows and then copy them once you install the patch.

Follow this link for a list of games and just do a search for the commercial titles,... then follow the links they provide to get the linux binaries (if they are available, some Linux ports require you to purchase the Linux version).

Ravage is good. He uses Mandrake, I think. He participates a bit on their users board.

You link against its libraries instead of Windows libraries, so you still need WineX to run the program :evil:

Where'd you find the patch for Tribes 2? Or is there a special Linux version you bought?

there r still copies available: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...236796-7051921

http://www.fileshack.com/file.x?fid=1200

Mind the game can be too difficult to play online for new players cuz last time i checked Tribes2 only had hardcore tribers left playing. Probably steepest learning curve, unless uve played Tribes 1, another fine classic that

Yeah the port for Doom 3 runs quite nice on linux The only bad thing is that you can't use any of the build in editors through linux As a note our Doom 3 Coop Mod at http://lms.d3files.com also does have linux support so it is there if you want to get a few more miles out of Doom 3 I definitely wish there were more games though that had native ports as I hate having any excuse to load up windows again, gross.

Also a good place to go for linux games is http://happypenguin.org/ Take care.
