Quake 3 for Linux?
I've read some of the articles here about Q3A and Linux. I have a Q3A disc for WIN. Does it contain a version for Linux? If not, where can I get / buy a copy?
if you have Quake3 (windows full version) it is possible to get it working on linux
first make a folder called...
then place your Quake3 cd in your cdrom and mount it
then goto /mnt/cdrom/quake3/
and copy the folder baseq3 to
then download the linux binaries
then just type
sh quake3 or ./quake3
to run the game
hope this helps
Thx a lot!
Information is very helpful! Thx a lot.
Almost the same applies also to Return To Castle Wolfenstein!
I had to say this, since I have not played Quake at all after I got Wolf to run with Linux.
Only difference is, that you need to install the windows version somewhere and after that copy the game data (the "main" directory) under /usr/local/games/wolfenstein/
Then get the installer from www.castlewolfenstein.com and have fun!
The game works perfecly and you will have a good time shooting the windows players. ;)
what installer??? please help.... i've already copied the rtcw order from my windows partition to linux... plz... tell me what installer i have to download ... and how to use it...
Download links to the installer are
Once you have downloaded the file, just open terminal (command prompt) and go where you saved the file and type these two commands:
chmod u+x wolf*
The installer asks some questions and then you can start playing.. (Of course you had to copy the "main" directory from windows wolf to /usr/local/games/wolfenstein before you started the installer.)
kuul... wow.. it works.. thx...
Is there any way to run the Team Arena expansion on linux or does ID not support it?
Yes, it is possible.
Also, make sure to check out the many quake3 mods that are freely available from the net. some links:
All these are free, and work with Linux.
