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?

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...

Here ya go:

http://www.pc-gamers.net/jb/reviews/ut2k3/


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!!

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.

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
