Yep, some stores have it already. Gamestop in NYC has it so if you live close to them, you might want to pick up a copy. Officially, the game should be on shelves Monday.

Comments, complaints are welcome :)

so whadda think? Epic sent me mine yesterday :)

Some of the maps are awesome. And the high res textrues..coool eh? However every now and then I get a lock up in which I have to reset the PC. The intro locks up at the same time. I tried the newest stuff (drivers dx8, ect and no luck). I have been enjoying playing around with the editor and some of the other tools. I have even started the next version of our mod :)

In all its pretty fun and lots of neat things to play around with.

Any chance of screenshots :)
How much better does the game look with Hi-res textures?

jbirney 09-28-02 01:58 PM

Crap,

locks up for me every time on the map DOM-SepukkuGorge when I go to get the lightning gun :( It does not do this on the GF4 system. Trying the 8500 now to see if it happens there.

BTW the intro rocks :)

Epic showed us what I thought was a much better one that even used some motion blurr. It was not for UT2k3 but it was using the same engine. I will see if I can get it for you...

Philibob,

awesome. I will see if I can get a few...

Here ya go:

note there are some small ones of the vechical test map (640x480). Sorry UT2k3 crashed and I did not think to set the res back. Man its fun driving the buggy around. They even implmented real phyics on the thing as well as back up/break lights, buggy throws dirt/graval/laval when it accels or breaks, head lights :)

ALL YOUR UT2K3 RETAIL IS BELONG TO US!! :cool:

just picked up my copy at the local Software ETC/Gamestop here in Louisville. EB still says they won't have it until Wed, hah.

btw, did anyone ever figure out a fix for the pauses in framerate when you first entered a map? Its really starting to get annoying.

that happened in the demo as well right ?

yea, I thought it was driver related but I switched to the 30.82's and it still happens....

btw, guys I found my copy on accident. Right as I was leaving the store, the guy asked me if there was anything I was trying to find, and when I mentioned I was waiting for UT2k3 he said the hang on cause he though they got some in the back and 'lil did I know, they did. Anyways so when you go scouting don't hesitate to ask, cause you may be able to snag a copy early ;)

how to spectate in retail ut2003?
 
For those of you lucky ones who got ahold of this game, how do u spectate? I looked everywhere but cant find the option.

Crap, now I have to find about $40 lying around (it's possible... *gulp*) and then hold up my local Gaming Concentration Camp, er, Babbages... ;)
