Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror Retail for Linux



This is an unofficial release of Tactical Ops: Assault on Terror for Linux.  The installers below are for the retail version and require the Tactical Ops CD for installation.  The Tactical Ops binaries were produced from a slightly modifed version of
OpenUT.  If you want to play the retail version in Linux, this is it.

Here's a screenshot of the installer.

S3 Texture Compression

Got an S3TC compatible video card?   Edit ~/.TacticalOps/System/TacticalOps.ini and change UseS3TC=0 to UseS3TC=1 in [OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice].

Here's an example of S3TC on TO-Resurrection:
no S3TC | S3TC
Note: Only parts of these maps use the S3TC Textures.   As you will see in the sample images, the ground and nearby building still look the same.
