    What game can I play online?

    I am looking for a game that I can play on my Ubuntu but I can play with my Windows, Linux and MacOs friends.

    Something thats not hard to set up on windows or linux and is an open-source shooting game would be perfect.

    Thanks in advanced.

    I'm going to have to try out these suggestions before posting back. I'm just downloading Nexuiz at the moment. It's quite a big file.

    It's 338MB for the data file. I'm using the repos.

    Glest should work in Windows and Linux not sure about Mac, and I have also heard about something called "RuneScape", never tried it so I don't know about that.

    Nexuiz:

    Couldn't find matching GLX visual
    Quake Error: Video modes failed

    I'm not even going to bother, neither would my mates...
