    Heh... Sad, isn't it?

    I, however, have no love for Cedega and certainly no love for Epic. No UT3 for me. *raises middle finger toward afore mentioned parties*
    No kidding.

      I wouldn't take Transgaming on its word when they say UT3 works, well at least for my definition of "works".

            I can't help it. I need to play it, even if it's on Windows! It's like I've been looking at a huge awesome fresh juicy cake for 2 years, without it expiring, waiting to receive a spoon so I can eat it. I can't wait for the spoon, man, I gotta eat it with my bare hands! I found it with 19€ and that's a nice price where I live cause the games are more expensive than the average.

            • Since when is UT3 a juicy cake... it's a cake filled with hot air and a thin layer of cake around it. No need to play that ( I did it so I know what I talk ). Stick to the older installments. They are a lot better.

                I would try it with Crossover 7.2 I have just upgraded to but i cant even get the DVD to mount unless it's something simple like libdvdcss2 getting in the way or confusing things........

                  I played the demo when it was out for many days and I was very very happy with that. And now the whole game is 19€ plus they have this free pack. For me that's appealing.

                  About the older UT-s, I loved the first one, but 2003 and 2004 were the opposite for me. You could plainly see that the people who made the gfx assets were plain stupid, because they were putting in all sorts of details like in a weapon, there was a pipe coming out of it, twisting around a little on the outside then going back in the weapon further along its barrel. Those sort of details more than redundant, whose existence was against functionality and common sense. Or for example the HUD, it was trying to be sci-fi by having 45 degr. angles in the contours of each area (ammo health etc.), without good taste at all. That just made me angry to see I think it was the guys from Digital Extremes who did those and have no taste at all in making menus/HUD-s, so good riddance. For me UT 3 has some of the first UT's feeling, and no bad-taste design style, just very good. But that's just my taste and justification

                    Heh, I share the UT classic and UT3 feelings of refinement. At least they both had a damn sniper rifle. (Epic should be shot for not putting one in UT 2003/4)

                    • UT = good ( real good )
                      UT2k3 = shit
                      UT2k4 = bit better but still shit
                      UT3 = some steps forward, some back, so still shit although less shitty than before

                      Maybe this clears things up a bit.

                        There is one in UT2k4 actually (two if you count the lightning gun).

                          The lightning gun is no substitute for the original sniper rifle and UT2004 had it because of a later mod (the original sniper rifle that is). It did not come with it.

                          • for me ut has always been for the mods although the game itself can be alot of fun too , we're all still missing the ripper and yeh i've always preferred the sniper to the lg although they are really the same crappy hitscan weapon ( i was told that there would be no hitscan blah )

                            anyway ut3 if ever available on the preferred platform should come with an editor and thus gobsmackingly good mods such as

                            ut99 tactical ops
                            ut99 strike force
                            ut2k3/4 red orchestra

                            that have been available for past versions also lots of unreal engine games could be ported easily ( so easy that the 'its not worth our time' argument goes out of the window *cough*

                              You really like UT3 more than UT2004? Are you kidding?

                                Depends on personal taste. I kind of liked UT2k3 and UT2k4 as that's what I've played in the past. Never got around to playing UT99 and I'm most definitely not interested in UT3 without a client- period.

                                Some will like UT2k4 better. Some will like UT3 better.

                                I just think it is a bit crappy (well, more than a bit, really...) of them to do this the way they've done it up to this point.
