Wolf SP in Beta

December 25th, 2001 by Crusader

Just a quick FYI, the Linux single-player portion of Return to Castle Wolfenstein is currently in beta-testing, so it shouldn’t be too long before the binaries are declared stable and released. To tide you over until then, here’s two screenshots:

    Maybe this is not a Christmas gift, but this is a great new indeed.
    Come on, Nazi scum, I am waiting for you! ;)

    I am currently playing RTCW single player in Windows and am anxious to try it in Linux. This is assuming I haven’t finished the single player in Windozes. Hmm…

    …if the single player portion works. Unfortunately I’m stuck with modem access for the foreseable future, so multiplayer on these games is really no good for me. :(

    Will Tux Games add the single-player binaries to their “Linux binary” CD? Please say yes :)

    The talented and creative minds over at id software have been very good to us over the years compared to the rest of the industry. [br] It seemed a logical conclusion for id to make a linux client; a prose affirmed by linux tests.
    I purchased the [windows] retail copy in good faith that id would develop and release a linux client.

    Ive delayed buying this so i can get it off tuxgames and become a “tally” for iD. As soon at this binary is released im getting it! – Just in time for my ADSL installation :-) oh and on another note – If Tuxgames is based in England then why are the prices in US dollars? is it because the U.S are the main suppliers or buyers? just curious thats all!
    Long live the penguin!

    The RtCW Linux FAQ has been updated [b]2001.12.25 multiplayer client 1.1-MP[/b]. It also has a link to a FAQ for a Linux demo version. Problem is I can’t find the file to download, the ftp server still has 1.0.b2 release. Anyone know where it can be found or is it a matter of waiting till after the holiday??

    Except for some strange graphical glitches (that I’m sure not everyone will see or even care about) the SP binary plays quite well on a Radeon 64Mb DDR card using the default XFree86/DRI drivers that Red Hat 7.2 installs. I’m running at 800×600@32 with almost all the whiz-bang features turned on and it is quite smooth. I put it up to 1024×768 and it was also smooth, but now I’m on vacation and can’t do more extensive testing.

    Like I said…if anyone cares (i.e. isn’t running an NVIDIA card. ;^)

    I have checked out all the ftp and wolf sites and none have a download for the SP linux version…. Is the beta going to be released to public?
