Finally I got a chance to play ut3 over lan with a friend.
We have played through the campaign in 2 days ... in totally 10 hours or so.

Was very interesting, but some maps were not easy to master (mostly the warfare maps).
Is here anybody who thinks, that the Necris Maps are in a typically Q.uake 3 Style?

Well, whatever I am waiting for an addon and hopefully for the continue of the uhm äh "story". But I am not glad about that with Malcolm :(

If there's something which is Quake-ish, is the Rocket Launcher's primary fire. Necris maps don't really remember me of Quake 3.

More than thinking about the story, they should fix the well-known problems of the game to make the whiners of the 'tard class to shut up:

1)Netcode.
2)Server Browser is pretty bugged.
3)Stinger is too powerful.

Some more too... Then we have the bonus packs (the first one should contain Malcolm).

Well, I can agree on #1 and #2. But #3 is just 2k4 people complaining because it's not a direct copy of the 2k4 minigun (ie, worthless except for finishing someone off). If anything is overpowered it's the Rocket Launcher.

With weapon-switch times the way they are, the minigun needs to be able to take someone down from full health. There is no such thing as a "finisher" weapon when it takes you longer to switch to a finisher weapon than it would've to just keep using the one you had.

Agreed.
Those problems listed are just the famous ones, not that I am annoyed by them...

1)I never lost connection in an online game.
2)Server Browser: History tab works perfectly for me. Clicking "Update" and the visited servers are back. Same for the Favourites Tab.
Bugs that I want to see fixed are negative player numbers and wrong maps (WAR map in the CTF list? Should have joined Kargo but there's Necropolis? That).
Nothing really weird aside this, I don't know why people aren't happy. Maybe the map behind the menu makes everything slow on crappy rigs.
3)Every weapon is damn powerful.

Anyway, I still think one of UT3's biggest bug has been Midway, at least for now...

More details, please?

1)Specs?
2)You have a ATI or NVidia Card?
3)NVidia? Got the NVidia Patch?
4)Got the official patch?
5)It crashes everywhere?
6)UT1 works perfectly?
7)Thread or Epic Thread.

You got the point, I think.

I got the crashing problem solved though, updated the drivers and finally bothered to d/l the patch :)

Just got my quake4 as I was saying earlier.But since I have 56k and looked up the patch,
F-ing!! 265 meg
man that sux, hope it works without it, but they say there is some sound fix for singleplayer, man they got to get stripped down versions of patches, thats enough for another whole game.

How big is the patch for UT3 80 gig?
Just ban everyone

I'm sure you can find a torrent download for the patches that may make things much easier.

This really isn't the right thread for continued discussion of UT3.
