Unreal Tournament 3
« on: November 22, 2007, 03:09:21 PM »
I am all excited when I picked up my Collectors edition of Unreal Tournament 3 today. I started the install and was posting on this forum when my computer did a Blue Screen of Death...
Rebooted, and now I will finish my post, and then try to install/play.

Still excited!

don't believe him, he's just trying to make everyone believe that he hasn't played and then at the next lan party he'll be trying to hustle everyone

He's probably ranked top 10 in the world right now for UT3

I have not had a chance to get the game yet, but it is in the works!!!!!  BSOD not sure I was getting that with the demo.... Hope that this don't happen with the real game...LOL I agree with Fugitsu, BoneRak will have this game figured out already...  I hear that this is only "Looks better" but still ut2004.... I have every other version of ut so I'll add this one anyway!!!

I am not sure what caused the BSOD. I forgot to uninstall the Demo so I did that then tried reinstalling the full Unreal Tournament 3 again. It installed! Then I only had enough time to play a little over an hour. Now it's time to learn the new levels. Hey Fujitsu and Seeker, there is a Co-Op mode for the campain. I am looking for a targe... partner to play though the single player on a harder level. Right now I am going through it on hard. It takes me two tries almost each level. The first try is just learning the level ;)

BCCHardware will be announcing a UT3 Server in the near future.  Just working out some details now.  Stay tuned!

Wow, you must have a terrible memory and forgot how terrible I am at UT, guess I'll have to refresh your memory at the next lan party

We've never had a LAN that I can remember before Christmas.  LANtabulous and VulcLAN were always in March.  March it is!

Ya I guess I thought that one year we had one after harvest..  Maybe looking for a LAN party..... ::) . So has anybody had problems installing this game as of yet..... The demo crashed a lot for me.... maybe the full version has solved this....

Guess I was a little slow. Downloaded Ut3, full version, today. Talking about eye candy! Plays well too, so far no problem. Way better than the demo.

Hey Seeker, I installed the latest Video drivers and that seemed to help things. I think I recall you talking about having directx10. Do you think that could be causing the problem?

And a side note: Took me 3 days to finish the single player game on hard. Still looking for someone to play Co-op mode.

Was just looking at a tweek at Epics forums
And this might help Seeker.

My Documents\MyGames\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Config.
UTEngine.ini
[Engine.ISVHacks]
PumpWindowMessagesWhenRenderThreadStalled=True

"This prevents lockups in the cinematic videos in the single player campaign, and possibly other times. I have no idea why this isn't the default setting, or what it means, otherwise."

Finished the game in 3 days on hard.....wow! Your skills have not gone down at all waiting for the new UT3. I just installed the game myself but I think it will be 3 days for me to finish the first level!
