Any First Person Shooters that compare to UT for OSX?



NOT Wollfenstein (hate the graphics and the 'objectives' style gameplay)

and Not Medal Of Honor for the same reasons.



any ideas?

    It's a little old, but Quake III isn't bad. Try the <a href="http://www.urbanterror.net/"; target="_blank">Urban Terror</a> mod for some wicked realistic fun.



    Of course, there's also Quake and Quake II and I think there's a multiplayer Doom.

    Quake III Arena



    Feels like a much better port, too. Does anyone know when UT2003 is coming for the Mac? They haven't even released a demo yet.

    Actually, I thought I had read that UT2003 isn't planned to be ported to the Mac...

    UT2003 is being ported to OS X in-house at Epic. Work just started, but we could see it go gold before Christmas.

    i must say, i'm quite addicted to the urbanterror mod. until recently that's all the quake that i've been playing. i haven't played unreal tourney in a while. don't know why, the game is a blast to play. seem to recall it being kind of buggy with osX. is this (still) the case?

    You hate the Wolfenstein Graphics? <img src="graemlins/surprised.gif" border="0" alt="[Surprised]" />



    You hate objective team play? <img src="graemlins/surprised.gif" border="0" alt="[Surprised]" />



    What is wrong with objective team play, the medics, leutenants, engineers, and soldiers make it fun!

    UT Preview 3 for OS X works well enough for me. Smoke trails behind rockets look funky once in awhile but that's the only problem I've had. I've been playing the Marathon Mod a lot recently... if you're a Marathon fan you have got to try it...

    Mac OSX Quake III



    Little help here?



    I have the boxed version of the game for OS9 which is installed on an external FireWire drive which plays in Classic (just about) with jerky framerates and low detail levels.



    I have just downloaded the Q3A 1.3 patch which was a Vise installer that put what seemed to be a new version of the game in my OSX Applications folder. There are two application icons in the new folder: a Classic version of the game "MacQuake3" (I get an error message: "Couldn't load default.cfg" when attempting to open that app) and an OSX version of the game "Quake3" with a generic Application icon. I get the same error message "Couldn't load default.cfg" when trying to open the OSX version of the game.



    I have the 1.31 beta 4 patch waiting in the wings which is just two folders (baseq3 and missionpack) and two applications both called Quake3 which appear to be OSX and Classic versions. I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with these files and folders... there is no read me! <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" /> Do I overwrite the other files or what???



    So, basically: what am I doing wrong? What do I need to do to get Quake3 running in OSX? Do I need to reinstall the original boxed version?



    Any help greatly received, but talk to me like I'm a simple child: I can design you a funky website, but can scarcely work the video recorder. That's the level of technical competence you're dealing with!!



    Tech specs if you need 'em:

    G4 933Mhz / 768 MB RAM / OS 10.2.1 / GeForce4 MX

    i am curious as to why i can not get quake3 under x to play online or even on a lan? i've tried making sure the ports are open under my firewall, yet it always tells me that there are no servers available. even if i specify a server it just sits counting and waiting. i know i could switch into 9, but i get much better performance in x (go figure). any suggestions?



    -as for how to geet quake3 going under x take a look at the forums at cubeowner.com, there is a good explanation given there.
