      Ultron heres a tip you may want to put in your first post..

      Ive come to a personal conclusion that by having everything enabled such as how you would for high system specs does not give you the optimum graphics IMO

      i know play with the maximum settings applied, however i have unticked Bloom and Depth of Field which has sharpened up my game so much. the waterfalls in the distances and hills are no longer washed out and blurry, but yet the textures within the game are just as good.

      i also changed post processing to Vivid.

      here are some screenshots of before and after: dont judge the graphics of the images as they have been changed in resolution and saved as jpeg, simply compare the differences.

      Before:

      After:
      [shot]http://aycu20.webshots.com/image/38019/2000618074267682083_rs.jpg[/shot]


      i prefer the latter, as the first makes me feel like im short sighted and need glasses.

              Hi Ultron,

              I have read through many many threads and you seem to be the resident expert.
              I think I have the same problem as Anakin14 and Capt. Maverick, where the splash screen loads and my processor jumps to 100% and stays there until I manually end the UT3 process. Before I manually end it (I have let it sit on the splash screen for 15 minutes before ending it), I don't receive an error message, and I don't ever see a black screen.

              My Specs:
              • Microsoft Windows Vista 64-Bit Home Premium
              • ASUS P5E3 Deluxe/WiFi-AP LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard
              –Onboard Audio: ADI® AD1988B 8-channel High Definition Audio CODEC
              • Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz
              • 2 x DIAMOND Radeon HD 3870 512MB (7.12 catalyst drivers)
              • Patriot 4GB(2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333
              • PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Quad EPS12V 750W Power Supply

              I built this system last week and every other piece of software performs as intended. I don't have any software installed (besides Vista, Office 2007, crysis, steam, catalyst control center, speedfan, CPU-Z) as my comp is pretty much brand new, so I am thinking the only thing that could be conflicting with UT3 is my drivers and/or hardware.

              Steps I have taken in troubleshooting:
              • Edited the UTEngine.ini
              • Enabled Support DXT textures
              • Deleted the .ini files in config folder and let the game recreate
              • Uninstall and reinstall UT3
              • Updated all hardware drivers
              • Disabling aero
              • Disabling anything that might prevent UT3 from accessing the internet
              • Running UT3 after a clean boot

              I am very frustrated and never in my life have I had this much trouble getting a game, let alone any piece of software, to run. Please let me know if you have any advice, or if you find someone in the same situation that has solved this. Thanks!

                might be your sound chip. that's the only thing your system has different than most peoples.

                  I have a Asus A6T laptop with a nvidia Go7600. I had problems with the game hanging up and the nvd_disp bluescreen. Anyway after trying some stuff from this thread I found a solution.

                  First off, I have all graphics on the lowest setting except for resolution which im going at 1280*768 with 800*600ish scaled. Then I tried with the modded nvidia drivers, game worked fine but I got problems with other parts of the card's functionallity.

                  bInitializeShadersOnDemand=True

                  Look at the first post in this thread, you should find where it is.

                  Was all I had to do to get it all working perfectly so far. Might increase the graphics details and try as well, but since I had crashes both on high graphics and low graphics I think it has to do with the setting.

                    I just bought this game yesterday. It installed with no problems. Patched it to 1.1..then when i started the game it crashes....well i tried every tweaks i saw, those didnt work..i looked into the logs and i saw an error it said "Vertex element type 5 not supported". Has anyone encountered this error?? or anyone can help me? i really want to play this game.

                      is there a tweak to turn off the dynamic music? I just wanna hear the audio tracks from the beginning to end.

                        Hi there. I'm having trouble with hitching in-game, but I've tried everything you said about modifying the *.ini files, so I suspect this might be a driver problem. I checked the website you posted for Laptop drivers and Modded INFs, but the only one I could find for my configuration has had reported issues with the GPU cooling system (that is, the cooling system stops working properly and cards are overheating).

                        My system setup is as follows:

                        Dell XPS M170 (Notebook)
                        Intel Pentium M 2.13+ GHz
                        2 GB RAM
                        NVIDIA GeForce GO 7800 GTX 256 MB

                        That's everything relevant, I think. I play with Texture Detail 2 and with the resolution at 1280x800 (the lowest Widescreen Resolution available).

                        I've had similar hitching issues in other games, most notably both Half-Life 2 "Sequels" (Episodes 1 and 2). In each case, as it is in UT3, everything seems to freeze for several seconds, the audio starts skipping and eventually cuts out, and then everything resumes as if it were normal. Sometimes I can stay in the exact location that causes the hitching and, in this position, my screen will become filled with random colored shapes, completely obscuring the image. If I move away from this spot, everything returns to normal - if I move back in, everything gets screwy again.

                        One last interesting problem - the text in my UI is somewhat screwed up. It appears that approximately halfway across any line of text, any colored portion of it is suddenly stretched off to one side. This makes the Main Menu UI difficult to read as the messages displayed are often cut off.

                        As I said, I've tried everything you recommended EXCEPT for getting updated Video Drivers and Modified INF files from LaptopVideo. That makes me suspect at least that this is a Driver Issue.

                        Any further recommendations would be most helpful! Thanks in advance!

                          Well notebooks are of their own kind regarding graphics, Dell is no exception.

                          You have to download thei drivers from the Dell site. The Nvidia one will most probably not cooperate perfectly.

                            I'll look there again, but I seem to remember checking a while back and there were no new ones for my card.

                            Interesting note, I just played an Instant Action, and a "hitching spot" just happened to appear ON a friendly bot. So every time I looked at him my screen had crazy lines and shapes and beams of light that completely obscured the image. Was kind of funny seeing a big ball of light and color say "I have the Orb!" and go charging into a firefight.

                              Thanks a lot man.

                              Don't resolve my trouble (my graphics is like 8-bit) but I appreciate your help.

                              Have a nice day!

                                I get something similar on Dell Vostro 1700 that has internal Geforce 8600M GT GPU. Unfortunately the notebook video drivers are different from desktop and they havent come out with something to fix it. Whats most likely happening is that your video driver is crashing.
