Yes. This games was released for Windows in 1999.

There were some issues with the native version of AvP on modern Linux distributions. Additionaly, the original version of AvP for Mac OS X (PowerPC) does not work on the last versions of Mac OS X.

This source port of AvP can be compiled on Linux x86, and authors added the option to compile this game on Linux x86_64 and Mac OS X (Intel).

The original project of AvP for Linux was created by Steven Fuller for Linux users who owned AvP: Gold Edition for Windows.

I heard about a promotion on GOG, and in the last month, many users received their free version of AvP from their online store. I know that game is available on steam, but I think that many people forgot/didn't know about this open source project.

Do you think about Wine?

Personally, I didn't try to run this game on Wine beacuase I prefer to play native games on Mac/Linux.

I know that AvP 2 was published for Mac OS X, but only works on old Macs with PowerPC processors. Unfortunately, I read that the multiplayer mode doesn't work under Rosetta.

I still haven't purchased this version of AvP 2, but I hope that will be working on Mac OS X 10.6.8.

I wouldn't say 'open source' but the full source code was released and many people made a shit load of stuff for it....


That was around 16 years ago though lol

Hi

AnonymousHoser published a new version of Aliens vs Predator, and I think that experimental support for AvP Classic Redux is the most interesting feature in this version of AvP:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNSvDj9rDTo#t=202

"Some work was done on the SDL2 support, namely the full screen support. There's still a lot more work required before it is stable though. Once that happens I plan on removing the SDL 1.2 support.
The OpenGL code has been changed to be compatible with OpenGL ES 1.0. The next release will require OpenGL 2.1 or OpenGL ES 2.0.
AvP Classic Redux was briefly tested. One possible crash was fixed -- the original game was never intended to use such large assets, but there are likely other crashes out there."
