Any free / open source FSP games out there for the Mac? Any that are worth playing?
Tremulous is free. Download it from Apple's download page.
How about the Marathon games from Bungie? Those are now free...and classics, mind you. Halo is a descendant (distant) of the Marathon games.
A suberb truly free game for Mac PC and Linux!!!
Nexuiz has been in development for close to 5 years by a team of amateur developers lead by Lee Vermeulen. It is a 3d deathmatch game made entirely over the internet. The purpose of the game is to bring deathmatch back to the basics, with perfect weapon balancing and fast paced action, keeping itself away from the current trend of realistic shooters. It uses HFX textures by Evil Lair, and currently has 17 maps to frag in. With an advanced UI, you can select between 15 different player models to use, with an average of two skins for each, and can connect to the master server to play people from all over the world.
Can't find Mac binary, link?
NVM I'm an idiot.
I'm looking for something with some sort of story line... not just run around shooting everything that moves.
Like someone said, Marathon is good (and has a great storyline) but you might be a little turned off by its age.
As long as it's OS X native I'll check it out
Yeah its OSX and Intel native, the games are from the early 90s but the engine was rewritten (bungie released it as open source in 2001 I think) and now its OSX native, has opengl rendering and a bunch of other nice stuff.
Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
It's an online multiplayer FPS... tons of fun.
But wolfenstein isn't Mac OSX is it
hmm mayeb i'm going to have to bootcamp it.
what is up with that marathon thing? there are like nine different buttons. I downloaded the .dmg that the mac os x button had, but it asks for maps, sounds, and other stuff (i can't remember). do i need to download something else?
Those extra downloads aren't required. However, they update the game with new sprites, higher resolution textures, etc...
You just downloaded the game engine... now you need data files to play, above the Mac OSX button there are three buttons "Marathon" "Durandal" and "Infinity", download marathon, copy the aleph one app into the folder with all the shapes/images/music/map/ files etc or viceversa and start playing, when you are done with that, get Durandal, then Infinity, if you just want to play online (yes it has online play ) just get Infinity.
There is mouse control but I'm used to old school all keyboard control (thats how I played the games originally so...)
No, it is OS X native.
Wow, Nexuiz looks awesome! I'm downloading it right now.
cool link, this perfect for my 5 year old G4 powerbook - thanks
for the nexuiz game, do I download the 2.2.1 release, the patch, and the map pack? or do i ignore the patch and just get the 2.2.1 release?
also, is anyone else downloading the game and getting slow download speeds?
it didn't really work for me. the download never started and i couldn't find the mac version
+1 Marathon Trilogy
I'm downloading it right now and it is very slow for me. I am just going to let it download over night and see what happens.
And from what I've read on the website, all SKUs are included in the same download file. So there is no seperate mac/unix/windows download.
I was going to download America's Army but I heard they stop updating the mac version.
poop. i downloaded Wolfenstein but unfortunately it ain't UB. Unplayable on my 2.0ghz macbook with 2gb of ram.
That makes me sad
