    Just saw a story about the full release of the Marathon: Resurrection mod. Looks interesting.

    But, it apparently requires the ORIGINAL Unreal Tournament to run! Does this even work on OS X (too many references to Classic in the M:R specs for my comfort)? Can you even buy the original UT outside of eBay? And how great can anything look on software that old? I appreciate that it took them 7 (!!!) years to do this mod, but you think they might have ported it to something more capable in the meantime... Aleph One is still looking pretty good.

    Their requirements:
    "- Any computer system that can run aforementioned copy of Unreal Tournament including, but not limited to computers that run Windows XP, Mac OS 9, Mac OS X with Classic (OS 9 environment), Mac OS X with Unreal Tournament with the Unreal Tournament OS X Preview 3 Release."

    Ive seen one that was a stripped down self running app.

    Like under 500mb.

    Yes, there's an OS X port, though apparently it's not 100% complete (no music and maybe a couple of other things).

    Sure. You can't buy it new, however. ;)

    Well...if they did that, then they would have ended up in the Duke Nukem Forever zone. i.e., constantly starting over with new engines and never getting done. It was better to finish with an old engine than to never finish.

    Well I guess its time to dig out that trusty G4 and my Unreal Tournament disc.

    I play UT X pr3 on my Mac mini Intel, it runs well, but it is a bit glitchy, and yeah, no music, but that's okay, I just play iTunes while I play. It runs very well @ 1024x768 too..

    I used this http://www.veloffdesigns.com/utmac/index.asp
    to convert my PC CD version to the mac version, but by the way, you need to get the data files from the installed UT folder on your PC, not from the CD like the site says, as they're compressed.

    Edit: This may not be legal
