Talking The New and Improved UT2003 Thread

We have one for Morrowwind, and now there's one for all the new stuff about UT2003. Anyone seen the new video, where they discuss the adrenalin capsules and stuff?

Been playing the UT2003 beta (927).
Not bad the AI could have been better, especially in that ballgame (had NO backup, never scored).
Graphics look awesome, but slowed down REAL bad when it got busy. Even at 1024x768 1.6GHz Athlon & OC'd GF3...disapointing...

This could be old news, but here are some actually good looking screenshots...

the UT2003 beta at 927 is pretty much crap. Thats why they didn't want these leaked in the first place.
Its pretty, and its playable, but its not very good.
(Probably not even that pretty, though thats just me talkin)

I assume you're talking about the previously leaked demo that was lacking tons of features and was basically non playable, not that 927 build, which contains most of the features of the full game, minus some optimizations here and there

Why don't you ask the developers on that, I'm sure they'd shoot you down.

I've played with 3 versions of ut2003

The alpha, from e3 all those years ago.

The leaked beta from 6-7 months ago

and the latest one that was leaked. 927? dunno.


the alpha had nothing but boobariffic models to take screenshots of.

It was also funny how the "GeForce3 only" flamethrower effect was just fine on my GF2. Talk about LAME.


The leaked beta sucked. Some so/so graphical effects. some nice lighting. But EVERYTHING was missing. and the AI was really really bad... also very slow. The music was all there tho.

The latest beta has lots of stuff, but it's not really that good.

The gameplay is tired... it's actually boring. And it doesnt look that pretty. It's reasonably fast though...

blah

not impressed.

Actually, the first alpha you're talking about is Unreal II Alpha that was optimized for GeForce III and was leaked after E3.

yea I was trying to figure out which leak I missed

Anyways, I'm still looking towards the *official* release this fall. I'm just wondering how it'll affect the release of u2 if they keep delaying ut2k3? Wasn't the original reason they were trying to get ut2k3 out early in the summer was to offset the release of u2 in the fall?

I think I'll get a new computer before I try it out.....the one I've got now would throw itself out the window rather than attempt it
