Counter-Strike: Condition Zero assaults Linux

Continuing its adventures into Linux, Valve has released a penguin-friendly edition of another of its games, bringing the total to five. Could it be Left 4 Dead? Portal 2? HL2: Episode Two? Gosh, even Episode 3? Er, no, it's Counter-Strike: Condition Zero. Still, that's nice, isn't it?

Continuing its adventures into Linux, Valve has released a penguin-friendly edition of another of its games, bringing the total to five. Could it be Left 4 Dead? Portal 2? HL2: Episode Two? Gosh, even Episode 3? Er, no, it's Counter-Strike: Condition Zero. Still, that's nice, isn't it?

Condition Zero added single-player to the CS world, facing off against snazzy bots. The development was a bit of a mess, started with Rogue Entertainment in 2000 then going to Gearbox, passed to Ritual Entertainment, and finally finished and released by Turtle Rock Studios in 2004. Yes, the gang who went on to create Left 4 Dead. The end result was a so-so mish-mash of scrapped, restarted, reworked and remade content, but shooting men is generally fun.

CZ joins Half-Life, Counter-Strike, Counter-Strike: Source, and Team Fortress 2 on Linux. If you've already bought the games for Windows or Mac, you now have the Linux version free too.

Valve says it's releasing Linux editions of more of its games "in the coming weeks and months." Good things come to those who wait. Valve's looking to get prototypes of its 'Steam Box' living room PCs--expected to have Linux as at least an option--into people's hands in 3-4 months, so the more Linux games the merrier. Steam now stocks 80 Linux games in total.

      They should fix the freaxky update they did, i'm supporting for up to 500 gamers wich cant play the game since the update, i fix it with two workaround's for people wich deledet its old content, and in oppotunity two people wich hold their old stuff and have waited for a new update fixing the issues...

      When other people read this news here too, and still have problems with condition zero, they should take a look at:
      Libary -> Condition Zero -> Forums
      and here the Post:
      Problems with Condition Zero after Update?! HERE you find HELP!!!

      Somebody should post THIS in a news and not the changes wich will come up in a few months! Atm many gamers finish with the game just while they don't know what they can do to fix this new problems...
      I'm in and i'm gaming it again since the day of the update, 2 houres later and searched with a test by myself the fix for all them wich deledet its content! And the point at all, the new changes ingame are better!!! Nothing was better than this update, but it was fail while something goes wrong with the update installation...

      Unless valve wanted to destroy the czero community, then it was a great strike! Do it again and you've got it!
