Return to Castle Wolfenstein
 
Hi, I would like to know if there a way to Install Return to Castle Wolfenstein in my Slackware 9.0, Installing from a retail win32 Wolfenstein CD-ROM, and how can I do that? Thanks A lot.

The only way it's going to run well is using WineX. Unfortunately, it's not open source. It's a custom version of Wine (which will probably technically run it, but not well) that's made specifically for games.

There's an installer for Return to the Castle Wolfenstein to make it run natively under Linux. Google for RTCW Linux installer.
Although, I've finished that game under WineX and it run perfectly during the entire game :)

yeah it runs native but i have never installed it.

I Tried to downloaded WineX from http://www.transgaming.com but
"You must be subscribed and logged in to access the page you requested." shows up, I think I need to pay, if you can give the full link, I will appreciate you.

As it was stated RTWC runs natively under linux, you can probably get the installer somewhere at the planetwolfenstein site. So I would reccomend that.

Winex however you can only get for free if you use CVS. If you want rpms or whatever you will have to subscribe for 5 bucks a month or something like that.

Gentoo has released a cd bootable version, that requires no install to your computer. I haven't tried it myself (and on dial-up, I'm not likely to d/l the 368MB iso file), does anyone here know anything about it?

They also have a bootable version of America's Army.

Enjoy!

you can d/l the files from http://www.3dgamers.com/ and you can get the .pak files directly from the GOTY edition without doing a wine install.
