Thanks, that looks like it will do what I want. I've compiled it but if I run

LD_PRELOAD=/path/to/built/libSDL-1.2.so.0 ut2004

It gives the same error. I also tried copying the built libSDL-1.2.so.0 into the /opt/ut2004/System directory (replacing the existing symlink) and have the same problem: "Couldn't find matching GLX visual". I've tried with and without SDL_VIDEODRIVER=x11

Edit: It works fine on Xorg with sdlcl but not on Wayland.

Is it possible to get this working on Wayland?

Currently gives the error "Couldn't set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual" regardless of whether SDL_VIDEODRIVER=x11 is set.

This native version is better than the Wine version. The D3D renderer stutters a lot (I've no idea why, it's showing as 60fps but it just stutters every few seconds. Other, much more demanding, games are fine) and the OpenGL Windows renderer doesn't support MSAA whereas the native one does.

I made a GOG version of this: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ut2004-gog/

@lazycrypt I just bought a copy of the GOG version for this purpose. I am not sure when I will get to it as I am working on some other projects at the moment but I will see what I can do.

Would it be possible to create a package using the GOG version?

For Win x64 the CD key may be located here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Unreal Technology\Installed Apps\UT2004

Damned be Valve for no longer offering any way (as far as I can tell) to get this key without installing it on Windows (or Wine).

Latest update of tslib broke this game for me. In case if someone got problem launching it because of missing libts, try this command from root:
# ln -s /usr/lib/libts-1.2.so.0 /opt/ut2004/System/libts-1.0.so.0

So Steam doesn't let you view CD keys anymore (I had to install Steam in Wine and then install UT2004 just to find this out) How are we supposed to grab our CD key to put into the script?

EDIT: It's not in the UT2004 install folder under System either.

EDIT2: Here's where the key is located if you install in Wine

32-bit prefixes will be located in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Unreal Technology\Installed Apps\UT2004.

64-bit prefixes will be located in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Unreal Technology\Installed Apps\UT2004

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_copyright#Fair_use also states that " held that modification of copyright software for personal use was fair" which has been held up in court.

UT2004 also told you how to do this for use with the disc copy and even came with Tux on the box. Also please note the thread that tells you how to do this on epic games forums: https://forums.epicgames.com/threads/652388-Get-UT2004-for-Linux if Epic had a problem with this a moderator would have complained within the thread / locked it.
