Please forgive me as I am a
to Linux, but so far I love it! But I am asking for help on a very odd problem. I had searched Google using various parameters and didn't come up with anything apart from a couple of Linux reviews which lambasted the install process but said the game worked fine otherwise. (which was understandable, I had a couple of minor problems but I was able to resolve them.)
Basically, Unreal Tournament 2003 will start out fine but I notice I can't look up or down when I am jumping. As I play, I eventually run into a significant problem - the computer acts as if my bot is looking downward. I must hold the "look up" key while moving the mouse up in order to look up again and hold that position. When I release the "look up" key, I proceed to look downward again. I have to kill the bot in order to regain control, and even that doesn't help.
This had happened to me once in the original Unreal Tournament, but the problem is far, far worse in 2K3. But I wonder if the problem is related to my OS or distro?
(to date, I have had no other s/w problems in Linux)
These problems did not happen in Windoze XP.
