Selected Test Results

What works

  • Moving the camera in the viewports.
  • Moving the camera in the static mesh browser.
  • The browsers, including the actor class browser, sound browser, static mesh browser, animation browser. The texture browser also works, but has some issues (see below).
  • Menus.
  • Loading packages, maps and otherwise.
  • Building levels. I saved a copy of an existing level and ran build-all. The resulting file/map work perfectly when launched and is identical to the Windows compiled version.

What does not

Selecting surfaces in the 3D browser. Clicking and right-clicking has no effect (No context menus). That means it's impossible to add actors into levels or change textures.

Selecting the desired texture in the texture browser. Always only the last texture visible in the browser gets selected, regardless of where the mouse clicked. This can be worked around by setting texture sizes to be huge, so that only one texture at a time is visible in the browser.


What was not tested

Adding any actors as this is currently impossible due to the mentioned selection bug. However, loading existing maps with many actors demonstrates they are at least working to some extent.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Tested using UnrealEd 3.0 from UT2004 Editor's Choice Edition for GOG on two different systems. One with a Radeon R9 285 and one with Intel Ivybridge iGPU, both using latest Mesa. The viewport clicking issue makes the editor unusable for full map development but otherwise it seems to be near fully functional now. -- Much of this text came from GreatEmerald previous results.

HowTo / Notes

Editor Not Starting?

If you start unrealed in the terminal, you will get a missing dll error. To fix this, follow these few simple steps:

  1. Download:
  2. Extract to /home/user/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/ 
  3. Start the editor. It should now run.
You can still edit maps, kinda.

Because you can add brushes, add, subtract and build. You could technically make a map. So all that needs to be fixed is the viewports.

Also, I found out you can't import textures. It just sits there forever and doesn't do anything. This is the same for music import.
