  • ut3.exe doesn't even run

    When I run the game, nothing happens.

    I even run it from the command line and nothing happens. There's not even a "UT3.exe" ever loaded in memory.

    Before my second attempt at re-installing, I installed the PhysX drivers separately and updated my nVidia drivers (GeForce 7900 GT/GTO). I then installed Unreal Tournament 3. I noticed that in \USERDIR\My Documents\My Games there's no "Unreal Tournament 3" directory.

    I installed UT3 on the same hard drive as where my MyDocs folder is at. I have a semi-non-standard MyDocs location, though, because I had to re-install windows a couple times with the same Username so it had to create separate folders. But I tried running the game from a freshly created user account, and still the game does not load.

    I've tried running with -nosound and -nohomedir

    The game installs and runs fine at my computer at work, so it's not a bad disc.

    Here's my DXDiag

        Ive got exactly the same problem...

        what did you guys do to fix it?

          If you patched the game to 1.3 and it doesn't work, revert to 1.2. Or, uninstall your PhysX drivers. Some people have had problems with them. Then see if it works.

            If you have the Physx drivers installed just go into control panel in Nvidia Physx and tick No acceleration in the settings tab.
