    it wont run at all!!

    unreal 3 just wont run at all, im so frustrated, i've tried new graphics drivers and settints, the new patch- nothing works!
    you click the icon for the game, the unreal 3 logo appears in mid screen, screen goes black, screen stays black. than it gives an error message and goes back to windows.
    the error report it sends has something about a file kernel.dll or something.
    and yes i've tried reinstalling it, several times in several places.

    what can i do?!
    computer is well above minimum specs!

    it sucks, i paid for this game and it wont even turn on.

        You can check this thread and see, if something in there matches your problem. There are some tweaks for NVidia-cards. Maybe that helps.

          thanks there was a reply posted on one of the pages talking about errors, well i finally got it working and this was the answer >>

          "For anyone with an Nvidia card getting a crash in kernel32.dll (this does not affect blue/black screen errors), try this workaround:

          First, make sure you are on 163.71 Nvidia drivers.

          If you are an administrator, Open: Program Files\Unreal Tournament 3 Demo\UTGame\Config\UTEngine.ini
          Otherwise open: My Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3 Demo\UTGame\Config\UTEngine.ini

          Change the line
          bInitializeShadersOnDemand=False
          to
          bInitializeShadersOnDemand=True

          *RESTART BEFORE TRYING TO RUN THE GAME AGAIN* "




          the only problem now is that i've set the only graphics options to full
          [world detail and texture detail to 6 which is the highest it'll go]
          and the graphics are rubbish
          really low quallity like there's no antialiasing at all and the textures are almost blurry, very low quallity.

          i dont get it, anyone else find that?
