    CD-Key authenticity check. Simplest way.
    You can pack the client data in there as well.

    Tracking unique IPs getting an update is better, but remember this program is spread through who knows how many mirrors. It's basically unrealistic (pun not intended) numbers because at that point it spreads to others there, and can't be tracked well.

    If the new updater is BitTorrent based, then perhaps...

      Already does that, at least on Win32.

        I might pick it up now. This game is only $10 at gogamer today and tomorrow.

            Maybe that's what Ryan is using!

              Heh, that screenshot looks a lot better then the screenshot Ryan put up. Ryan's looks like it's running pretty low res with lots of jaggies. Software renderer perhaps.

                So true... but for debugging purpouses it's enough ;-)

                Anyway I hope my new HD4850 will run UT3 on 8.10 drivers if they'll ubuntu 8.10 ;o

                  I'm sorry. It's just that working in a 3D application*, you can't have both the details and speed like in a game. So when I try a "next-gen" engine, I'm positive about the look and speed ("real-time"), compared to what I'm used to in the workspace. Of course OpenGL is all about real-time graphics.

                  *Things have changed the last few years of course, with shaders in the viewport and links to external engines. Being a convert to Blender, I'm very excited by the progress made by Yo Frankie!

                    I do not want to derail this thread but somehow I'm still struggling to understand what you are trying to get at. So you say Blender is no real-time? Since this would astonish me ( since I model all game models there in real-time... except sculpting which is blowing slow ). Or do you refer to so called "sandbox editing" which shows a WYSIWYG of the game world with or without game logic enabled? Since the later one would make sense to me. That's not often done

                      It was a bad choice of word. Blender et al. is real-time 3D, yes. It is easier now to work "WYSIWYG" in 3D games, with artist friendly tools (like the editor for 'Rage'), but not usually in conventional 3D-tools (not build for speed). The Apricot build of Blender helps a lot with tying the two closer, I'm sure.

                      Hope that makes sense.

                        I guess so. Never used the Apricot build. I'm used to my dev-build ( although I still manage to learn new things about Blender from time to time although using it for quite some time now ).

                              UT3 has an option to "scale up" a low-res render (so it would render at, say, 512x384, then scale up to 1024x768).. I guess its so it allows the game to ease up on the GPU from complex pixel shaders. At least in the demo, the default was a 50% scaling.

                                Uhm... what use is this please? On CRTs upscalign is for free. And even on TFTs upscaling by integer factors is done by the TFT integrated interpolation unit. So why upscaling on the graphic card wasting previous fill-rate ( since you have to fill in addition to the game rendered screen also the full screen ) if you have a TFT with integrated interpolation unit doing this for free?
