Talking Enemy Territory

Alright. It came in a .run file. Just like my nVIdia Drivers. Wish dosen't work with them. What do I need to open a .run file? I'm on Linux mandrake 9.1

I've never heard of a .run file before.. are you sure it isn't just a shell script or since you mentioned Wish, a tcl file? Have you tried opening it up to see what the first line says?
