Unreal Tournament for Linux

The current version of Unreal Tournament for Linux is 436.
This is developed and supported by Loki, and is available for download from their website.

Note that you require a full copy of the game (i.e. the Windows version of the CD) in order to install and make use of the Linux port.

A limited source release is available from Loki's CVS repository. See the project info page for more details.

Official Updates

Unreal Tournament Bonus Pack
Epic have released a Bonus Pack for the game, featuring new maps and other goodies. Get the Linux tarball!

Inoxx Map Pack
The Inoxx Map Pack features several additional maps which were not ready in time for the full release of UT. Well worth a look - this link takes you to a non-UMOD version which can be installed easily in Linux.

Archived Patches
For those interested, Leif Sawyer is keeping older versions of the patches available from his FTP space.

Unsupported extras

Alternative GL renderer
The "nonlinear projection" GL renderer produces a trippy effect when used :-)
This is unsupported and not very widely tested (it should work on a GeForce, but expect a low framerate). Copy it to your System directory and change every occurance of SDLGLDrv.SDLGLRenderDevice to OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice in your UnrealTournament.ini file.
Note that only 640x480 is supported.
