    Possible Help??

    Ok i was experiencing the "black screen of death" where Ut3 loads the splash screen then causes my monitor to go black like its gonna start the game then suddenly my computer, gleefully decides to take a reboot, thus causing the stupid dont send box...

    Any how after trying the following tips:

    which none of them worked...

    as mentioned above i tried to use the UTengine Fix ie:


    I then also decided that i'd play with the other settings in the file changed the other things above this command and turned them all to True so my Utengine says this


    After a quick cursing section at the fact i've become a midway/ Epic programmer in under 2 days, i cross my fingers and started Ut3!! and guess what.... It bloody works!!! Although i am having trouble using the create a profile section the game runs bloody amazing...

    I'm sorry if i lost sum of you guys on the way back there so heres a quick recap...

    1. Try and

    2. When editing the UtEngine Change all the settings under
    "[Engine.ISVHacks]" to true

    3. *This 1 is not compulsory i just dont like the stupid midway advert*

    On the Ut3 icon on ure desktop add -nomovie

    "C:\Program Files\Unreal Tournament 3\Binaries\UT3.exe" -nomovie

    to remove the adverts before the main menu.

    Please note i'm a noob at this stuff, i hope i explained it simply enough for you guys, if not please contact me at Turb0@cpcclandotcodotuk or reply to this post, i hope i helped some of you :s
