I hope this project keeps growing.
This could make the difference between people sticking with windows.
If linux has such great linux games like this why would anyone stay
with windows? It's time for a switch! =)

clintbrot - I've been having the same problem. Some games work but most don't when they are clicked on. I'm not sure why, I think I had started having this problem in Bea before I installed Bianca.

BTW - this game doesn't have a prayer until it can actually be installed on linux. The only "linux version" for this game is some crappy zip file that took forever to download and has no script to execute... I've installed actual windoze programs on linux easier than this... :?

huh?? where is everyone finding this zip file?
its easily available as an installer
http://www.truecombatelite.net/componen ... nfo/id,99/
just make it executable and run with ./filename.run

PS you need enemy territory installed first, its installed the same way though, both have a graphical installer

Enemy Territory is a proprietary game, you need the disc to install it.

Nice try but if you're going to promote a linux game try one that's actually FREE.

TC:E is a mod for Enemy Territory.

I play ET all the time and have played TC:E a few times. I prefer the regular Enemy Territory.

BTW - it works fine in Mint.

Try this:

sudo sh ./et-linux-2.60.x86.run

If you want to play on punkbuster enabled public servers, you will need to update PB or you will get booted.

Once you get this, http://www.punkbuster.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php

install it with with:

sudo sh ./pbsetup.run

When it updates pb itself, you have to add Enemy Territory to it and it will then get the update files for that.

Happy Gaming!

Fragadelic its not working for me ... after i type in the commands you posted this is the reply i get ...
sh: Can't open ./et-linux-2.60.x86.run
Looks like i will never get this installed. :evil:
Unless you know of another way that i can try to install it with..
Thanks for your time and help.

++++UPDATE+++++
Ok i got it installed and its starts up fine but when i go to join a game it tries to download mod files and it just hangs there or drops me back to the desktop... from what i see it is not downloading the files.. its like the folders are being protected.. :cry: So i cant join any games.. Any ideas on what i need to do so that i can download the mod files to join games ?? :?:

If you installed it into the default directory, you should be fine. It creates a .etwolf folder in your home directory where these files that are downloaded go. It is possible that the files are not available to download. Not all servers allow it. Try the following server which I happen to game on a lot.

209.40.100.4

Downloads should work there but you have to be patient depending on how fast your internet connection is. The majority of the servers have a lot of maps and other support files that you download the first time you connect.

You must update punkbuster as well if you haven't already as most servers will kick you if your pb isn't up to date. pb will kick you if it can't update which is most of the time. When it kicks me from lack of updating, I just run pbsetup,run again and manually update ET.
