I'd even go so far as to recommend EXUOpenGL, it has uncapped drawdistance (which will be important only very occasionally but still) and can be found here with more info:
http://www.unrealsp.org/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=2639

Also, set UsePrecache to False for the EXUOpenGL renderer, which should avoid some issues with some specific textures (see here: http://www.unrealsp.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3524 toward the end of the thread).

I patched game to 277i, selected OpenGL and it worked. Thanks everybody!
I'm getting back to playing the Ehactora's Story ^_^

Finally! I finished playing The Fifth Vortex! \o/

Have a lot of impressions, most of which are totally positive!... There were may be a few minuses as for me... but in the whole, I liked this addon very-very much!
I myself prefer to play Unreal addons exactly like yours - not too epic, not too long, made in the original game style, but individual and well thought-out. The Ehactora's story is a good example of this kind. :tup:
(I don't like global but unauthentic mods like Operation Na Pali, or 7 Bullets. There is something interesting in there too, but I just love the original spirit and more...classic approach to the story.)

Well, to be short, let me list my pros and cons of "The Fifth Vortex":

+
deeply atmosperic, very Unreal
interesting and authentic story
very high quality of mapping
attention to the details
sound design/music selection
lots of puzzles (pretty easy to solve though)
incredibly cool-looking scripted events
cinematically staged scripted scenes (looking good, and not ruining the atmosphere! that's important!)
....and such a fabulous ending!... (I was literally screaming "Wait, what?! That was MY ritual Skaarj!" when O'Neal dropped him down XDD )

-
....well, sometimes there were a little too many closed doors opened "somewhere else"...
the Moon texture on the 5th map seems kinda out of place...
And nothing more to say here!

So...
Doublez-Down, Teridax, and co-workers! You guys are sooo awesome! \o/ Thank you for making this mod.
I wish you mapped for 'Another Reality Project'.
I mean it. I'm serious.

Just realised I played this pack a while ago and never came back to say how much I enjoyed it. :)

Glad you enjoyed the pack Legend. Be on the lookout for the release of Resurgence. I did one map for it, but Teridax and the others are doing a wonderful job on it.
