Posted by mikshaw on Nov. 27 2005,15:30ut2004 in Linux uses openGL, not directx. OpenGL is available by installing XFree86.
However, unless you have a machine that is several times faster than the fastest machine currently on the market, you will also need to install a video card driver that supports hardware acceleration in order to play ut2004 with an enjoyable framerate.
Posted by chickenman on Nov. 27 2005,15:45lmao mikshaw, running ut2004 on software rendering alone would be quite a task indeed - you seemed to summarise it quite well.
Napster69 - note that there are a few pre-made xfree86 video card drivers for hardware acceleration around, if you have an nvidia then you're half way there allready (other brands are still emerging), check the downloads area and the folder that xfree86.dsl makes in /usr/home/
hope it helps!
