    Tribes: Ascend

    Does anyone know if the Tribes: Ascend beta works on Linux? Specifically Ubuntu 11.10. I'm wanting to play it on here. Hopefully someone knows.

    That and Blacklight Retribution, but mainly Tribes: Ascend.

    Re: Tribes: Ascend

    Fail. Cannot even complete the install. it tries to run an authentication and install service which won't work. It appears to use .net, I'll continue to try by installing .net in a prefix see if it works, but not likely to!

    Have to be later though..time for work

    That sucks, I thought it was supposed to have native Linux support, at least so I thought. Maybe the actual release will.

    Let me know if you get it working.

    Thanks.

    Re: Tribes: Ascend

    Failed totally. In Wine and Crossover cannot even get it to install. The HiRez downloader software bugs out even with .net installed.
    There may be a Linux client planned, but it's not there at present, and the windows client won;t install :/ Perhaps they will also release the client via steam like the did with Global Agenda. As far as I am aware you can play Global Agenda on Wine via steam, bt not through the HiRez downloader.
    I'll try it if they release via steam too...(they haven't yet)

    Has anyone even emailed hi-rez to find out of they will make a linux client? I will sign a petition to bring this game to linux as well pay little more if need be.

    Re: Tribes: Ascend

    Just noticed that this is now available via Steam, so I shall give it another go and post the results.


    -Update, it still uses the Hi-Rez launcher after installing via steam, so therefore it still fails.
