well already with the Quake 3 engine available in the repository.
# yum install quake3
# unzip UrbanTerror40_full.zip
# mv q3ut4/ /usr/share/quake3
# quake3 +set fs_game q3ut4
Trying to run it from the mod menu will fail with a "hunk alloc" error.
So don't bother. Let me know if it works for you.
It doesn't allow redistribution. The readme has this gem.
"Urban Terror is distributed free over the Internet and is covered by
the Quake 3 SDK licence agreement [EULA]. The mod files may not be sold
[in any form] or distributed on physical media unless with permission
from iD Software.
For further information on legal use of programs derived from Quake 3
source code, please contact their respective authors.
While it may indeed be possible to secure redistribution rights from id
since they are a very Linux friendly company, we could do something to
make this easier meanwhile. Create a package called urbanterror which
depends on the quake3 package and uses autodownloader to download the
game data, create a menu entry which calls the above command. Should be
pretty easy to do. Anyone interested?
If someone can provide me with a:
-wrapper script for launching
I would happily add this to the quake3 package, a seperate package just for
this is overkill IMHO.
Take a look at the current quake3-demo wrapper, .autodlrc and .desktop file for
an example howto do this.
