    Just played the latest build (19th December) with a couple of bots.

    Fast paced, frantic, twitchy. All good things :thumbup:

    They have definitely noobed it out a bit though. Head highlight on the sniper rifle, countdown until weapon/powerup respawn... not a fan of these things :thumbdn:

    However - if it helps the game last longer than UT3 did - then I think I can deal with it. UT3 was fantastic fun when I played it on active servers. Vehicle CTF was epic fun - much like UT2k4 days. :thumbup:

    Sadly UT3 didn't last and within 2-3 years it was essentially dead online sans a few people who would play every now and then :upset:

    Anyway! Looking forward to UT4.

    If you haven't tried it - sign up on the Unreal Tournament forums and get the download link from the "Top Secret: Members Only!" section. :)

    Downloaded ut4 last night and had a few rounds.

    It's ok...

    I don't like all the added rookie stuff like timers for pickups and sniper rifle cross hair on the heads of enemies

    movement feels a little slow/heavy - with that said I saw some other players that looked to be flying through the air...

    Hopefully the full game has the wow factor, yet to be blown away by environments/gfx since UT 2003

    The linux version is apparently pretty good, so I'll be having a few sessions post-xmas. Hope to see a few of yas.

    I initially tried the windows version and then tried the linux version yesterday. Few tips:

    * Disable window compositing if you run it.
    * Update to the latest vendor driver if possible (I'm on nvidia 346.22 via xorg edgers PPA).

    Both seemed to run at essentially the same pace... ~30-60 FPS depending on map, number of players, etc.

    2560x1600, everything maxed, GTX680. :thumbup:

    Had a few epic games last night where I had my arse handed to me on the kAoS UT server. :lol:

    Good times. Wondering if I'm just getting old or whether my U3011 is hindering me with twitch gaming :p

    Also wondering if I can save on bandwidth by copying UT files from Windows to Linux so I don't have to update twice :confused:

    Where are these servers hosted or how is it done?

    I tried to play a game last night but kept jumping about, lag spikes. I usually never ever have lag, whether is is Dota 2 or back in the days of UT3.

    I was playing on the kAoS Sydney server. There are a couple of australian servers.

    Keep in mind this is a pre-alpha release. A lot of maps aren't fully textured/lit, the weapons are being played with quite often, there are general bugs/faults.

    Still great fun though. :) If you can deal with being 0wned all the time by superior players :lol:

    Pretty shotty but I guess that's pre-alpha. I couldn't even set resolution higher.

    I only just got it and the 4.7 engine update had a quick look around changed the res up to 2560 and maxed everything out was fun but a little sluggish :)

    set up a dedicated server works pretty well.
    playing on deck and face is nice...weapons are tweaked so are the friggen jump boots:)
    oh and set the bots to 4 and above and they are pretty nasty good old fashion run and kill fun :)

    actually was going to crank one up soon to test.

    still trying to work out how to alter the map rotation as some of them are just not nice :)

    tested it on a couple of systems with 7850 and 7870 and using medium textures on those easy 70/ 100 fps and still looked good...plus love the death animations:) one time I was chewing on my shoulder...laughed my ass off

    ok now things are getting fun :)

    the editor is now free no more subscriptions.
    if you were a subscriber you can get a pro rata payback(up until march or something I only paid 2 months so meh)
    plus if you were a subscriber you get $30 bucks to sepnd in the marketplace.


    Also a new update version of the game is out with loads of improvements and a couple of extra characters.....and they improved the bots....why...they are killing me as it is make em dumber I say:)



    https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Version_Notes

    so no excuse not to get into this....especially if you are a modeller or music sound effect guy.

    I,ll be testing the new server out later
