Your thoughts on UT3.

Now that we've played this game for a couple weeks, how does everyone like it? Will this game last or will it die at an early age?

It will lose ground to other games quick unless changes are made.

I personally like it but I don't think it is strong enough to keep UT
faithfull's happy for long like UT99 did.

There are mods popping up now, so maybe they'll get it right soon.
Looking forward to checking out the test server tonight.

While Epic held back on releasing this game until 'it's ready' as they kept saying....lol...they really spent too much time on the look of the game rather than concentrating on what fraggers really want..... and thats an out of the box working game. Sadly it wasn't working like it shoud be. They left out what is really important...the satisfaction of us who have bought every release they have made.

After saying that, I'm impressed with the play of the game. It's the only sequel that comes close to the feel of UT99 which is the game that still survives. I think it has real potential..no thanks to Epic...where the mod community will fix what Epic did not.

Hopefully Epic will continue to release updates that are meaningful..like more and better server side management....webadmin...etc.

Ok i'll stop writing a book....lol..but one more thing to Epic's credit..they released an awsome UT3 editor. This editor is a major leap above the previous versions. :mrgreen:

ok lol When i first put it on the dell it looked and played like poop lol but i figured out why ,on the dell it had to be in 640 by 480 res to be playable after getting the new puter and the 8800 gt i found that the higher the res the better it looked so right now its in 1280 by 1024 and the look is amazing and now instead of a big blurry game i can see in very high detail everyone .what is everyone else running it in for resolution .i also have ingame texture ands everything at max and still get 300 fps starting out

Would sure like to know how you are getting 300fps. I should be right there
with you but can seem to only get 90....and that's at 1024 res. It acts like
it is capped at 90 all the time. I have everything set in the game to the
tweak guide that GH posted (performance) settings. I can't imagine that
my processor would be capping my fps.

Anyway, this doesn't have anything to do with this thread but would like
to chat with you Deez on TS sometime and go over your settings. It may
just be my MB & processor bottlenecking (AMD 3800+ & socket 939 board). :confused:

I think Epic screwed releasing this thing in its presant form. I thought I had a decent computor, Dell 3.4 gig, 1gig DDR2 duel channel ram, 256 meg 6800 PCI express vidio card and the game runs like crap. Have to keep res to 800 x 600 to play, anything higher and its unplayable. The start up screens and server list look cheep as hell. The maps are ok but you cant translocate up on things and the detail of them for me dosent come close to 2k4. 2k4 I can run with all my settings on the highest and the maps look so real with tons of detail. Now I think I have to up my ram and get a new vidio card to run this thing. I have all the settings as low as they go in the game and most maps have a fog in them. :redface:
