Everything installed properly, and I added the registry keys this site says to add, but the program will not run. It gives me no error messages. A tab pops up in the toolbar saying "Starting UT3" (or something along those lines) and then it goes away and nothing happens. I'm not 100% positive I have the keys entered correctly, if someone could post a screenshot of what it should look liek that would be helpful.

Performance is improved since wine 1.1.30 Mouse is a showstopper bug. You can't use cards which are unlockable powerups because when you use the keyboard to navigate and use a card it then loses focus and can't navigate to the play match button in the menu. So your choice is powerups or a working mouse ingame. It's no choice at all.

This game plays pretty horrible on Linux saddly. Runs flawless on my windows boot. I get wierd changes in my mouse sensitivity it seems. I have the FPS display on so I can see if it drops when my mouse lags but it doesn't, randomly during play my sensitivity gets cut in half so when I go to spin around I only end up going about half way and of course most of the time resutls in my death. I have to play the game on just about the very lowest settings possible though to even get above 40 FPS. I average 60 unless lots of guys are in the same room shooting drops to about 40.

I've just installed a fresh version of wine(1.1.31) and created a fresh prefix. I installed UT3(Non-Steam) and attempted to open it. I get through all of the opening movies, and then it freezes at a black screen. It gives me this just before it fails.

Unreal Tournament 3 works perfectly under Wine 1.1.28 in Sabayon 5.0 ( so the latest Gentoo release should too ) except, when I set MouseWarpOverride to 'force' there is no way to select 'Begin Mission' in Campaign mode!
Is there a way to select it just by using the keyboard?
Other than that, without MouseWarpOverride I get quite high FPS with my Phenom II 955 @ 3.2 GHz, Geforce GTX 295 and 6 GB of RAM. :)
sound problem since 1.1.30
by Michael B on Monday September 28th 2009, 8:33
can anyone confirm that in menu/ingame sound is broken with 1.1.30? The intro video sound works, but as soon as the menu loads where you have to log in, it's silent.
I have the steam version, but i guess that doesn't make a difference..

i tried to install patch3-4-5, none of them works. The patches are needed for some bonus pack (eg titan pack) and for online playing of course. Here is some debug information by winedbg (bt all) astral.lagua.hu/ut3.debug
Forget about single core processors

My english is in development, plz forgive me that :)
I've bought a whole new pc more than a year ago to play ut3 but still no ut3 for linux so i'm checking this page and ut3 faq very often. i really wanna play by now :\ Few days ago i saw Milena's test results and i got really excited. "Everything works" ooh man sounds good, after a long wait maybe we can play? I've compiled a fresh wine-1.1.29 and installed an ut3 (again). Everything went normal, installation worked. After starting the game i've experienced the same horrible performance as few months ago. It was unplayable even with lowest graphical settings. There's a discussion in the PhysX topic about that maybe PhysX is not hardware accelerated under wine (or linux). I had a single core 3g pentium processor with 2mb L2 cache. Because of Hyperthreading, my cpu load applet looked like i had two processors. While i was testing the game i saw load on BOTH logical processors. I don't think its another process thread of ut3 (but can be possible) maybe its wine, i didn't really care. Milena has an NVIDIA 9800 (i have a 9600) and an amd QUAD processor. Hmmmm... So next day i went to the shop. I've left a lots of money (and tears) there for a 3,2G core2 duo with 6MB L2 cache. Guess what? The performance is PERFECT. I haven't tried maximum graphical settings yet (world and texture detail: 3), but i'm sure it would work. I hope you can use this information.
I still have a serious problem and that is the mouse. Without the MouseWrapOverride reg key the mouse movements are ok until it reaches the edge of the screen of course. When i change the key to "force" the mouse starts to behave really strange. It feels like "dynamic" mouse sensitivity. It FEELS like sensitivity would change in every 2-3 sec. Totally useless, you cant aim (screen edges are ok). Do you guys have any idea how could i fix this?

I just realized that Unreal Tournament 3 uses PhysX (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PhysX) which is not yet supported in Linux. So, if you for example try to run the PhysX test applications in Wine, they will work, but drop to Software rendering mode (and gives an error stating that no PhysX card was found, no support, remember?), thus making me draw the conclusion that the game does this as well, thus the lag.

Game installs and runs with wine 1.0 rc5 and the registrysetting, but performance is very bad. FPS between 1 and 30 on my athlon 6000+, 2GB and 8800GT. some minor graphicbugs (cant see no weaponfire etc). MouseBug still there

On Ubuntu 8.04 with wine1.0 rc5 and after the fixes in regedit i can run the game fine, the only problem is I am not able to move the mouse once i get in the game. Other than that it runs well, no lagging or anything.

After upgrading to wine 1.0RC3 I was able to install the game, but it won't run.
Does anybothy have a Idea what I did wrong?
the error messages are:
pastebin.com/m73021e87 because they are so long...
I have OffscreenRenderingMode set to fbo
Furthermore Kubuntu 8.04 x86-64 with i386 libs

I don't have that of a big problem with the "performance" of the game. I haven't tested the FPS, but, it is definitely higher than 30fps on my GeForce 7600.
The Graphics glitches you see, if you have a nvidia card, is most likely due to a bug in the nvidia driver and not a problem with the game. I do not know the reason in detail, but, I experience the same glitches, but less, in UT2004. It is a known issue it seems, after some searching. Something to do with pixel shaders.
I did not have the same problem before I upgraded from Ubuntu Gutsy to new Hardy. So, it is something with the nvidia driver that have caused the graphics glitches for me. If the driver gets sorted, there will hopefully be a lot less of glitches in UT3.
I sooo wanna play UT3 now. Just finished off UT2004 again :(
