WIndows or LInux versIon of UT2K4?


I plan to buy Unreal Tournament 2004. Of course I want to play it on my Linux, but my brother also wants to play it on his Windows.
I have before used the download-able Linux installers to install my windows edition of Quake 3 on Linux. This of course could be an answer, but I'd like to show interest for the Linux version.
So, is there a download-able installation program, to install the Linux edition on Windows?

Sure? On the package in the bookshop, it says Windows 98/ME/2000/XP, and then some stuff about that 2000 and XP requires the double Ram than 98 and ME

Ah, but note the penguin on the box, on the back next to the 16+ rating and Alias logo on my boxed set

There's no mention on my 2K3 case but that definately has an installer on the third disk, which works fine btw

Right now I'm looking at /mnt/cdrom/linux-installer.sh with the first 2K4 install disk in.

Yup. See the link to their 2k3 item to see the comment "Please note: The Linux installer for this game is on CD 3 in the boxed set." They're just selling the standard cd set, as you find in any pc game store and at the Epic site.
Email them if you're not sure, or buy from someone else if you want.

But how to be sure that It's the same for 2k3 than for 2k4? I think I've seen a download-able LInux Installer somewhere.
Anyway, I'll just buy It, If It hasn't got the Windows version Included, I'll just buy It again

Only Epic can legally sell versions of their product, there's no open source linux version or anything, it's all the same set of cds/DVD. You might have seen the linux patches/updates, same as there's Windows ones.
Well if you've got the cash, just dive right in...

Buy UT2k4 ANYWHERE. Every copy of it made includes the linux version as well as the windows version.
