Linux Support
Dear Developers,
With the recent rise of working Linux ports UE3 games will there please be some support for Linux? I really want a native version of this amazing game.

I switched to linux only since tf2 came to linux, if only tribes was on linux as well, I would be happy.

+1 for Linux. I would really appreciate a linux version and would thank you with an ingame purchase.

I really can't see a reason for it to not be ported over since Unreal 3 engine has been ported over.

+1 indeed.

I've been playing Tribes: Ascend for a long time and have done in-game purchases. However, I simply got tired of maintaining a Windows install next to my Linux. Would really appreciate a native Linux version (a Steam port would be very cool), or at the very least, a known Wine configuration.

Think about it - you'll be the best FPS that runs on Linux. And not to generalise, but Linux users tend to be loyalists. If you get in on the ground floor - a lot of people would still be playing the game, populating servers in a few years. Just check any other Linux game stats. And with Ubuntu making efforts towards a working tablet version and total convergence - you'll be honing in on various markets with just one port.

+1

It would be all kinds of awesome to be able to play Tribes again. I will not likely dual boot just to get that running.

Try this!

I haven't used it myself, but if someone wants to see if it works, please let us know.

Thats for Tribes 2, not Ascend.
+1 for a Linux port of Tribes Ascend.

i played the hell out of Tribes 2 under linux, and would love to play Tribes Ascend.. TribesNext was fine, but was still a WINE solution, if you wanted the Linux version, and only an old version at that.

I won' t hold my breath, but I'll add my opinion/request/pledge-to-buy-it to the pile.
