The (sound)-engine of unreal1 never got patched for osx, or am I wrong here?
So no RUNE, UT99, UNREAL, DEUSEX for OSX ?

There was a somewhat experimental, but functional version of UT99 for OS X, but it never made it to Intel.

FWIW, DX ran well under WINE last time I tried it. The original UT ran too, but I vaguely recall having to mess with the WINE configuration first.

I did some "wine-ports" as well, but it's not the same as the original one and it also depends on the OSX.
There are always problems with other OSX versions and some wine-bottle-configurations.

If we are talking unreal-engines on osx here...why the hack did they never release gears-of-war?
I heard that the porting was already in progress...but it never came out.

Microsoft. Also, apparently Gearbox Software did the Windows and macOS port back in '03. I'm grateful it wasn't Virtual Programming.
