RTCW won't start
I have just upgraded to RH8.0 with the latest kernel. I compiled and installed the Nvidia drivers. UT2003 rocks.

My problem is Return to Castle Wolfenstien won't start.
I copied the "main" folder from Windows to the install dir after running the 1.33 installer. This worked in rh7.3.
What I get is a can't find wolfsp error. This error pops up with both single and multiplayer games. I have checked the dir and both executables are there. What gives.

I checked the scripts that launch the game and it is pointing to /usr/local/games/wolfenstien. this is where the exe's are residing

To prevent the "Pirated copy" posts, I am using a retail cd.

Easy solution.

Try this. First open "Terminal" application from "System Tools" menu.

Then go to your wolfenstein folder:
cd /usr/local/games/wolfenstein

And try to run the game from there:
./wolfmp (for multiplayer or)
./wolfsp (for single player)

If this doesn't work, I think you did something wrong when running the installer.

I tried that. That apparently was the prob. What I tried next was wolfsp / mp at the command prompt in the console and got a can't find default config. Missing files check installaton error.

This tells me that the installer doesn't install base files, just updates what you have. Is there an installer that installs the game before updating?

I know I used one before, just can't find it. ran the installer copied the main folder from windows and the game fired right up.

there are two files 7.5mb lite (upgrade) and 70mb full (linux retail)

I tried that as well. (70 meg full) I still get the cannot find defaulr config error. Dunno. Worked well in RH7.3, just won't co-operate in RH8.0 ....
