Boy bands are wildly popular and successful, but that doesn't mean they are worth a *****.

    I think alot of people get razzed because these slow, plodding, camper "realism" FPS games have stolen away such a huge user base from games most people here on a UT2003 forum like better. i.e., fast paced action games like UT/Quake. IMO, one reason the "realism" shooters are so popular is the fact any n00b can go onto a CS server, hide, camp, sneak around, and make a game of it. UT type games take alot more skill on an individual level, and many people aren't interested in putting in that much time or effort just to get owned over and over again their first few months of playing. But I think it's great you posted the news about a new mod, more power to the modder community! :up:

    Actually, I'm waiting for JailBreak 2003.

    Then again, this doesn't sound bad...just not really my thing.

    I recommend you d/l the in-game sound clip from their site if you haven't already, it's very atmospheric.

    as for the question of why i'm still here, cause i'm hoping utk24 will be better, then Red Orchestra and other great mods will be implementing vehicles in for ut2k4 version.
    I actually played 2K4 last wed at the SF Buzz tour stop and thought it was pretty sweet besides the fact that the build was 1.5 months old at the time and there will obviously be improvements.
    The fact that you could take over a power node and then respawn at any power node your team has control of felt very BF1942, so if anything, I see RO being alot like BF1942 only not having as long of a history and established user base. Still, I like the engine and I'm glad that once you own the game, you have all these mods and mutators you can run. It's like buying multiple games.
    I actually liked CS, but it's simply dated to me and playing FaceOff was a nice retro gametype that reminded me alot of the fun I had playing CS while retaining some of what I already like about the look and feel of UT2003.
    It's all good...just thought the subject didn't fit the content of the thread and that was my only issue. I'm sure RO has alot to offer or they wouldn't be wasting their time making it, eh?

    Why didn't you just title the thread "Red Orchestra" or something instead of tainting it as yet another UT2003 bashing thread?

    I actually noticed my performance increased after completely uninstalling UT2003 and deleting it's directory and then reinstalling from sctratch along with the patch and bonus packs. Then defragged my HD. Much better. :up:
    I guess installing a buncha mods, maps and stuff kinda bloated the game alittle er something. Dunno, but a clean install and defrag seemed to do the trick for degrading performance issues.

    That's the kinda thing I expected this thread to contain...

    same ignorent talk as most of the idiots on this board who as soon as they see a mod or a game using realistic weapons ""Great! not another CS or DOD clone, because i'm an ignorent a$$hole and am gonna judge everything based on one thing that I hate"" -by ignorent ******** on this board

    and what do u mean yet another ww2 game?? all games have their own timelines, and plus this is the only ww2 based mod for ut2k3 so far to be released(as stated earlier) and this one seems to be much more promising then anything else for ut2k3...

    and also, i'll bet $500 i'm not the only one that thinks they wasted $50 on ut2k3, but will come in use finally with Red Orchestra for online, and other great mods.
    Excuse me for being a ignorant idiot. But I think its sad to compare such a fun and great game like DoD to a game that uses iron sights. I have tried several mods, games that uses this kind of system and I have never found any fun in it. Realistic? Maybe but its not always the realism that makes a game fun, sometimes you may have to cut down on the realism in gain of gameplay and playability. Besides I wouldnt call it super realistic if you have to use iron sights wherever you are. On a distance I see it realistic to use iron sights but you cant hardly say that iron sights are used in close combat fighting, most soldiers know their weapon and dont have to have a crosshair at those distances.

    But hey I just gave my opinion which clearly states from imo. Its not like I am forcing anyone to stay away from it. I just state my reasons for not liking a system like that. Maybe I am just a ignorant idiot.


    PS. DoD actually has a much better solution on the aiming system, atleast the last time I looked. Navy Seals a mod for Q3 is another game that uses a much better system.

    A friend of mine have been playing CS for a number of years now and at that he has been playing the same f***ing map over and over again all these years cause that's the only good map IHO. It's called DeDust or something like that I think.
    That must be reeeally stimulating
