Quite a staple in the Linux gaming community. If you're into FPS games, this is one of the more fun ones out there. Active community, awesomely balanced.

What was the issue? Should just be a matter of running the binary.

I downloaded the Mac/Linux binary. After unpacking and giving all files r/w/x rights, I ran the linux x86_64 binary. It started but instead of the game, I ended up with the console mode where I read that it missed several files. Apparently those weren't present. Since I also tried/played Nexuiz I gave up on UT.

I know it's a free FPS but I never liked Urban Terror.

I'm surprised you say it's balanced because for me, after having played games like TF2 or CS:S I just don't feel that at all. And the cheating that goes on in the game is extremely rampant; their anti cheat system (is there even one?) doesn't seem to work. Wallhackers, and aimbotters.

Well, the weapons in the game all have their give/take features, and all options are constantly available for all players. I can't really grab a certain weapon/whatever and turn the tides of the game like in a lot of other titles. That's how I meant by balanced.

But yeah, the cheating in UrT is pretty frustrating. Most of the cheaters are extremely easy to kill, though. But the problem that also arises from that is when everyone considers you a cheater if you have a ratio of like 20/2 on a public server; it shows how rampant the aimbotting/wallhacking is. Though to remedy it, UrT HD is going to be creating a "Passport" system which will give a huge lot more control over the cheaters.

@ redman:

Some 64 bit users have problems starting the game. The defaults worked for me on my 64 bit Linux systems, but you may want to check this. It's apparently a common problem.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately I couldn't use it to make it work here.
And when I wanted to try the i386 client, I needed lots of additional 32 bits packages.
At this moment a bit too much for a game I'm not sure I would be playing wink.gif

But it is strange that more 64 bits systems have problems with it.
Hopefully they can and will fix the problem soon.

Same here, and I definitely do not feel like installing loads of extra i386 packages just to try and get the 32-bit version running. Well, not that it matters much, I've never been a huge fan of PC gaming anyway.
