    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: ADIĀ® 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!

    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:
    [shot]http://aycu02.webshots.com/image/41441/2000653902650382044_rs.jpg[/shot]

    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.

    I've tried uninstalling the patch (I didn't try playing the game until I installed the patch), no luck. I've uninstalled the game & the patch then reinstalled just the game. Again, no luck. Maybe the game would have played if I had never installed the patch, but who knows.

    so my 3 year old system, having been able to play games in the past i thought hey lets install UT3 and see how it runs....

    i installed it, loaded, and wow it aucutally runs well enough to play. Granted, it looks a little dull, and blurry, in places, but i really didnt pay much attention to the graphics as i blasted my way through single play campain,

    yes, i am going to update my computer, and yes i will teak the f*** out of it on high settings..someday....

    but for now it ran great, no glitches, or freezes, and my system BARELY makes the recommended

    Now here is the reason i am posting, i've had several issues, and each time i have came here and found my answer, but now i found one that apparently everyone is expeirencing and no real fix for it yet

    First lets look at my computer specs

    AMD64 3500+ (single core) @ 2.1ghz (no overlock)
    2 Gigs of Ram (Corsair 800's i think)
    Asus A8nx SLI Premium
    ATI Raedon X850 Pro 256, PCIE card (single card, powercolor oem)
    Windows XP

    Looking at video cards recommended, i fall somewhere in the ancient cards, and the bare minium cards.

    Here is my issue, i played all the way through campain mode, loved the game was a fantastic ride, played many hours of offline instant action, fixed all my small issues (cinematics locking up)

    I figured, hey 1.1 patch is available, i've finished the game, itchin to play back through it, so i was like lets download 1.1 and play through again, on hard mode...

    Download, install patch, fire it up again...black screen, instant crash back to desktop, game closes, no error message from windows...try a few more times, nothing...

    I use Omega drivers, newest version, havent tried 7.12 catalyst drivers, as single player used to work, now 1.1 makes it not work for some reason

    I have an X-FI sound card, xtreme fatality edition, never had an issue in any game, ever, period

    Got latest drivers for it (about to install) there is beta drivers released on 1/09/08 and maybe that will help, although its pretty obvious a video related error, but cant hurt to rule everything out

    Going to re-install non-patched see if its 1.1 for sure (probally) and only solution i guess is to play non-patched....which is lame

    I'll keep active in this forum, and post anything i figure out, this is really frustrating, its going to bother me till i figure it out, because once i do get a better gaming system, i want to play it to the fullest max, and proper patches that dont crash my game.

    later
    I used to be able to run this game flawlessly for about two months... Recently I've been getting crashes like yours.

    Guess I better try going back to previous version. Will check back later and say if I notice any changes.

    Great thread Ultron thanks.

    Im having a problem where when a certain effect is onscreen the framerate drops strangely. It is the effect I can only call the 'tactic bubble' which appears near nodes on the larger warfare maps and has the low res video feed/picture of your base core- when used it will bring up the tactical command screen. Its unlikely to be my system as the rest of the game runs like a dream at max settings in 1280x1024. My system being a Q6600 quad core (stock speeds atm), 4GB DDR2-667 (4-4-4-12), TWIN BFG-8800GTXoc GPU's in SLi, in an Asus P5N32E-SLI+ mobo.

    The game runs beautifully when I'm looking anywhere but at one of these bubbles... If anyone has an .ini tweak or any way to turn this effect off or render the video feed static please let me know. I've tried changing my processor affinity, updating with the patch and the new driver, all to no avail

    Please help so i can actually sit down and enjoy this game.

    P.S. are the single player cinematics in-engine footage? If so then it's pretty as hell... In game characters are moving about too fast for me to actually tell... clever clever Epic Thanks for reading.

    Tried something new!
    I first deinstalled ut3 and ageia complete.
    Then cleaned up my harddrive.
    Also went into REGEDIT and removed in my registry all that with the name UT3 on it.
    Then run RechMechanic cleaner.
    Then defragged whole system.
    Rebooted computer.
    Installed new on another partion of my harddisk called F.
    Also went to Ageia page and downloaded / installed aegia update
    http://www.ageia.com/drivers/drivers.html
    Then defragged F
    Started up ut3 and it runs ok for now.
    I will let you know if this stays the same or that it will crash again.

    PFFFFF...what a work to install a computergame ......

    Monday my new computer goes to the shop where i bought it.
    They will look into it.
    Nothing helps, computer crashes with ut3, wathever i do.
    I,m not happy !
