Got UT2004 demo to load with wine....


but all that came up was the splash screen that said demo and had the logo then it said I had some error with display... I running off of my x server right now... I have the driver for my geforce video card but when I go to install it, it says I have to exit my x server or something.. how do i do that? if i get that driver installed do you think that will allow me to play the game and load the 3D aspects?

Why run the UT2004 demo through Wine, are you a glutton for punishment?? There is a linux version out there that works perfectly on my Fedora, Gentoo and Arch-Linux distros. Maybe try the Linux version.
