OK. I really don't like UnrealI, but since Linux
is cool and UnrealI doesn't run under Linux, and I like tinkering...
First off, the salient point of this exercise: unreali-install.run (3.8M) - If you
have UT installed in Linux, and an UnrealI CD, put the CD in the drive
and run this baby. Last modifed 2002-12-09
Because AcidUT is so f***ing cool, and because I'm in control of this
installer, AcidUnreal is actually included in this distribution. Just
have a look at README.Acid.
In response to many questions:
I still don't like this game
Multiplayer. DM Works just fine between clients that are all /this/
client. ie, machines that are running UnrealI as is installed by the
installer on this page. It will not connect to genuine UnrealI servers,
as it's fundamentally a different piece of networking software.
CO-OP Apparently doesn't work, but as I've never played this game online
at all, ever, I can neither verify not contradict that claim. I think
that hacking at it until CO-OP works /MAY/ be within my humble grasp
once I have a working computer again.

We changed a ton of stuff between Unreal 1 and UT, including the binary
network stream format, and the layout of the gameplay classes. So let me
put it this way: It would probably be easier to get Unreal Tournament to
connect to a Quake server! :-)
The obligatory screenshots are
here. This page is fairly large as the thumbs clock in at 1.1M [there's
another page linked from that one].
Yes, I hijacked the UT splash screen.
For those of you who came here looking for something to to with Return

Muchos Kudos goes to:
Edward Rudd, for your unreal scripting expertise
Matt Matthews and Doug Dahl, for the inpiration for this whole exercise
