Getting ready for Linux Gaming Weekend?
Get OpenArena or Ubuntu users can just click. I’ll be playing OpenArena instead of the planned Tremulous.
Get ET (Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory)
They have a great gamer manual,
However to get ET to play will be a bit more work, mostly because it was released quite a while ago. A great program to make it work better with sound is here. http://nullkey.kapsi.fi/et-sdl-sound/
If you don’t know, the Linux community is getting together to play games this weekend in order to showcase that gaming does indeed rock on Linux.
Multiplayer gaming isn’t nearly as fun unless the people playing understand how to play and have the basics mastered. In this post I hope to get readers up to speed on how to play Urban Terror. This is designed for gamers who already play first person shooters. If you don’t this little guide isn’t going to help.
First, go and get it. [http://www.urbanterror.info/docs/texts/110/#1] Follow the system specific instructions on the page or you won’t know what to do next.
Once you have it up and running I suggest you set the graphics settings to something more appropriate for your hardware setup.
Some very important Urban Terror specific items:
Q – for bandage. after you have been shot (and lived) you might also be bleeding. you can tell because your health would be flashing red in the bottom left of the screen. find a safe spot and hit q to stop the bleeding
Reloading – don’t reload after every battle, once you reload the ammo left in that clip has been tossed away
Different guns? You have to press escape to get to the team or weapon selection screens.
Defuse (CTRL) stop the bomb from exploding.
You can get a full list of controls.. (http://www.urbanterror.info/docs/texts/107/)

Go give Urban Terror a try! (and write your UrbanTerror suggestions in the comments)
