Have you tried any I might have heard of?  Maybe Silent Assassin or City of
Heroes? (I'm not sure if they are OpenGL).  I've only used wine for zip,
7zip, winrar, freeagent, and some other utilty apps.  I wonder if wine will
detect that I later installed the nvidia OpenGL driver?

Is this one a FreeBSD native RTCW?

I lost my old Window pk3 file, but it looks they are free now:

I will try it when Enemy Territory finishes.  It's taken 5 hours to download
ET, whoever is hosting 250MB file isnt giving up much bandwidth.  But its
free, so I'm not complaining. Much, lol.
