Comment 1 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-09-10 06:55:41 UTC
UT2003 and all UT2003-based games, such as America's Army, require a 3D accelerator which supports S3TC.  The ATI Rage 128 does not have this support.  It is impossible to get UT2003 to work on that card.  The game essentially requires a GeForce or better NVidia card or a Radeon or better ATI card.
Comment 2 witr 2003-09-10 07:58:18 UTC
Although I understand that you probably can't do anything about this because the code comes from upstream, it would seem that it would be better for this game to output a message saying "This video card is not supported" instead of crashing.  Doesn't it?
Comment 3 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-09-11 03:32:53 UTC
Sure, it would be better, but the game is binary and not something I can modify.
