Looking for source ports of older games and engines.
I have recentlty been playing older games in Linux thanks to projects like these:

http://arx-libertatis.org/
http://www.gemrb.org/
https://openmw.org/en/
http://icculus.org/prey/

I was hoping some people here could point me to other game and engine source ports to Linux that I might have missed.

I don't think anyone here can help you more than Google.

"that I might have missed"

I can Google source ports all day, but someone may know of an obscure game or project I'm not ever likely to find on my own.

There's one for System Shock 1 called TSSHP (The System Shock Hack Project).

Thanks for that one. Project looks old but I like the idea of getting back into System Shock.
There's one for Star Wars Dark Forces called "DarkXL."
It's Windows exclusive as of now but works beautifully under WINE (Linux support is planned IIRC).

Wow. For some reason I thought the Aleph One project was only Windows. Lol. I've been playing it for years.

I'll be looking into some of those.

These are pretty common old ones:

Exult - Ultima 7/ Ultima7 Part 2

IOQuake3 - Q3A
http://ioquake3.org/

IODoom3 - Doom 3

I'm fairly sure iodoom3 was abandoned. Exult looks cool. And HoMM III is great.
