  • UT3 will not start

    ok so i recently did a clean install of W7, re installed steam and reinstalled UT3
    all of my drivers are up to date, i have verified all of the UT3 files and all is ok,

    but when i try to start the game UT3.exe pops up in task manager for a few seconds then closes again, i get no splash screen no error messages no sounds whatsoever and after much MUCH searching these forums and the web i cannot find a solution anywhere appart from 1 who reinstalled W7 again.....which id rather not do....

    can anyone help me?

    tried to launch ut3.exe from install folder, instead of from the desktop shortcut?
    or set administrator rights for ut3.exe, or set compatibility mode to win xp service pack 2?
    i had this also some months ago, but i cant remember exactly how i fixed it...
    you could also try delete the ini files.

        usually here

        Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Config

        just delete all the ini files, the game should then make new ones... if its not located there try look in programfiles/steam/steamapps/username/ i think here unrealtournament 3/ not sure though because i dont use ut3 with steam....but for css its steam/steamapps/username/cstrike or smth like that, and ill guess it will be similar for ut3, otherwise google are more than ready to help you locate where the ini files are

            the problem lies with Kaspersky Internet Security 2011, after installing that UT3.EXE no longer loads.
            i didnt have this problem with KIS 2010.

            Edit:

            after more delving and info searching ive found that the issue im having lies with version 11.0.2.556 of KIS.
            apparently if i download version 11.0.1.400 the problem will be solved but i cant get hold of it,

            ive mailed Kaspersky support so we will see what happens

              to anyone else having the same problem, until they fix version 556,

              go to this link

              http://www.kasperskylab.co.uk/kavfil...1.400en_gb.exe

              enter these details

              user name: kavuser
              Password: Dfpt43

              and dwnload the file, you wil need to uninstall the latest version, reboot then install the file you get from there,

              when it detects a later version say no and 400 will install

              failing that mail kaspersky tech support, tell them the problem and ask for verson 400

                hey guys...

                I have the same Problem and tried to fix it by quitting Kaspersky... It did'nt work :/ . So do I really have to downgrade it or do I only have the same problem but Kaspersky is not the reason for mine? =)

                Edit:

                I don't have UT3 bought from Steam. I got this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Unreal-Tourn...7728120&sr=8-1

                  1. Instead of clean install make a backup. Install system, drivers and all you need (not to much...) then with Nero make bootable backup your system partitin. After that, when is sommething wrong, you can easly restore system - that take 10 min. No more needs to configure whole system - all personal setting is untouched - it's like restart...

                  2. Kaspersky Internet Security..? Use 'Microsoft Security Essentials' - is faster with better security and service. No issue with other programs (Win7-64).

                      from my experience quitting does not work you have to fully uninstall then reinstall the previous version

                        1. thanks but sometimes i prefer to do a complete reinstall tough i do do this more often.

                        2. i find kaspersky very secure, moreso than MSE so i use it

                            http://forum.kaspersky.com/index.php?showtopic=191690

                            and i have posted information in this thread of how to get the pevious version (11.0.1.400) i have done this, im running KIS 2011 version 11.0.1.400 and it works fine. the problm lies with KIS 2011 version 11.0.2.556

                            another plan ive not tried myself is to uninstall KIS completely and reinstall, whn the popup says a new version has been found say NO and install the version on the cd....

                            would be greatful if someone could try this and confirm or deny

                            edit: for refrence the version on my disk is 11.0.0.232

                              have you tried compatibility mode?
                              - i tried windows 7 and it failed on me: The game crashed and i could not get UT Editor to work on a any 64BIT OS [stock items in my generic browser were always blurry]
                              -i never tried compat mode
                              i just use old OS xp 32 bit, you lose some RAM but UT is not that demanding on today's pc's anyway.
                              is there a special reason you want it on WIN7?
