View Full Version : UT3 really suprises me

I bought UT3 today and been playing it for a few hours now. And I have to admit: this game rocks. I didn't expect it to be so good. It's fast, it looks beautiful, the vehicles are insane (so many :D ), it seems to be very well balanced and damn, lots of maps. The bots are really hard to kill even in "skilled". The single player campaign is a nice try, although there was way more potential I guess.

I'm looking forward to playing it in the internet with all the international gamers (nana2)

The German version can easily be set to English language, but no gore in the game, so I'm hoping for a fix. The game takes 8GB of HD space, the installation took quite a while.

One thing about the graphics: full version looks a lot better than the demo and runs sweet @ 1440x900, 4xTRMS, 16xHQAF (never goes below 40fps). You need to set the 45-compatibilty-bits to get AA to work, but then it runs perfectly. No bugs or something.

System: Q6600@3,2GHz, 2GB RAM, 8800GT@700/1700/1000, Vista x64.

Explain! what is looking better ? better textures ? better effects ? better shaders ? .. screenshot comparsion if you can between the demo maps & same maps in the full game.

also AA is working in the demo since the 169.04 drivers , why do you have to run compatiblity bits for the full version ?

I mean textures. They are ... ehm ... sharper I guess and more detailled. You know what I mean when you'll play the game, believe me ;)

Didn't work for me, it was simply not there. I had to use the compatibility bits from Rainbow Six: Vegas, but then it worked. Maybe it's a bug with my system.

Those screenshots are fake. Everyone knows that Epic only releases the absolute max quality a game will ever be in the demo.

its been proven that the retail looks no better than the demo, those screens are identical to the demo btw

The demo does not have the high res textures, Epic confirmed this so there is no way it looks identical, maybe similar but not identical. Plus those screenies definetly look better than the demo.

Those screenshots look WAY better than the demo. The demo seemed to be missing the "detail" textures (I think that's what they're called). They're those textures that lay on top of things when you get really close to give it a real textured look.

yeah epic says a lot of things, but this is reality, not epic marketing.

theres lots of other people on the epic forums also saying the retail looks same as demo. they are the ones who actually own the game and dont work for epic marketing

The textures/bumpmaps in the second screenshot wEEt posted look pretty good!

how's the retail look the same if 3 random shots of retail have been posted a page back, that look a lot better?

+1 We'll know in a week but it seems silly to argue something when you don't have anything to disprove what someone else posted.

Here's an idea. Pick a texture, extract the highest resolution version from both demo and retail, compare file size, if retail is larger its probably higher resolution. You could even do bit-by-bit comparisons if the sizes match.

Asked a German clanmate take a few pics from Hetray in his retailgame and i replicated them with shots from the demo,wanted to determine if there's any additional texture detail in the retail game..Both are taken on 8800 series cards with high detail textures @ cp.

All ingame visuals maxed,postprocessing set to intense.
1680x1050
AA+AF set to application controlled

Some textures look a bit more detailed in the retail game imo ,not a big difference though.The retail game looks a little better over all but its not anywhere near what was suggested from epic.Not completly happy about that but what the hell,UT2004 is getting old and this will replace it nicely i hope :)

I feel like making another thread crying and ****ting myself over what's become of epic. But I'll just make brief mention if it here instead.

(Epic is poop)

There. =)
