    Some help would be nice!

    I just installed UT3 on my computer, but I got some problems..
    The game starts up correct, the logotypes flash by. But that's the only thing that happens. After the logotypes, I get a black screen and the computer just stops there. After a minute or two the computer reboots, with no error or whatsoever.

    My specs:
    Windows XP (Home Edition)
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ (2.21*2Ghz)
    1 GB RAM DDR2 (PC6400 I think, 800 Mhz) - I know this is kinda low, but I will upgrade it anyday.
    Nvidia (PCIE) 7950GT PCX (512 mb)
    A Power Supply of 550W

    So it meets the minium and the recommended system requirements, any idea why it wont work?

    Many thanks in advance!

    had the same problem at work with a 7300 card till I installed the nvidia 163.71 drivers. Then it ran fine.

    ----------KNOWN ISSUES WITH POSSIBLE FIXES----------

    ----POSSIBLE SOLUTION 1: Crash or BSOD after title screens
    Might show no error at all
    or an error similar to: Error: AppName: ut3demo.exe AppVer: 0.0.0.0 ModName: kernel32.dll ModVer: 5.1.2600.3119 Offset: 00012a5b
    or nv4_disp

    1 - Open UTEngine.ini
    Located at My Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3 Demo\UTGame\Config\UTEngine.ini
    If you are an administrator, it might be in: Program Files\Unreal Tournament 3 Demo\UTGame\Config\UTEngine.ini

    2 - Change the line
    bInitializeShadersOnDemand=False
    to
    bInitializeShadersOnDemand=True

    3 - Restart before trying to run the demo again.


    ----POSSIBLE SOLUTION 2 - AMD systems: Crashing (after startup, in menus, during game)
    Install the AMD hotfix:
    "AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor Driver Version 1.3.2.0053"
    on this page: http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/..._13118,00.html


    ----POSSIBLE SOLUTION 3 - Creative X-Fi users - Crash with possible error message similar to PROCESS_HAS_LOCKED_PAGES
    Disable hardware OpenAL.


    ----POSSIBLE SOLUTION 4 - AVG antivirus users
    We've had multiple people report they were unable to run the demo until they turned off AVG antivirus.

      Upgraded my memory to 3gb, and it works well now.
      Dunno if that was the real problem, but it helped at least!

      Well, thanks anyway!

        Usually black screens occur from bad video drives, please update to the latest video driver and make sure that it is working correctly.

          Always update software before updating hardware, but glad you fixed your problem. I'd go ahead and install the newer drivers anyways, because it's mostly a good thing to be updated. you're likely to get better performance.
