    I'll try that when I get off work. I hope you're right.

      Yes, like so many things in UT3... xxx should work ... but things don't.

      Epic released an unfinished game which they now try to patch to bring it at least to a respectable level. Needing the community to fix up so many things in your game ought to embarrasse any developer. What is it with Epic/UT?!?

      1. UT99 -> great
      2. UT2k3 -> not so great
      3. UT2k4 -> great
      4. UT3 -> not so great
      5. UT3.5? -> great?

      So, let's hope the trend continues and they release an improved version (UT3.5?)

        I'm sure that Epic will add all the features from past UT's is the upcoming patch.

          All that unfortunately-located button does is allow you to choose which bots are "active," like if you want a few particular bots in your game. You can edit nothing about them, you can't even set up what team they are on.

          You can get them on a particular team if you order your list in a certain way, but you have to figure it out on your own, and if you want to change it, you pretty much have to start the list over.

          The upcoming patch does nothing with this. I hope they will add this stuff in in later patches, but I really can't be as sure as you seem to be that anything is certain.

            I'm not saying that this will happen for sure. But in a later patch I think that they will add some of the old features

              I tried it and you are right. Requested feature for future patch.

                It's not just thinking anymore ... I am about to run a few basic tests.
                The real problem is that changing voices isn't as easy as it used to be
                In fact I'm even tempted to say that it is impossible for Othello to have another voice.

                  Yeah I agree too this was a great feature in the original UT. I used to spend a lot of time customizing them. I really miss naming them, setting all their abilities/skill up and all that. That's probably why I am still playing the original UT more than UT3, aside from some other features.
                  Same here. Ireally miss naming them too. I used to have my own named team and enemy team. I don`t get it. They give us great graphics, but less personal options...

                    They justify most of their cuts with "oh, if the community wants it, they'll make it themselves," but these kinds of things are on the basic level. It should be integrated into the UI from the start.

I use a 'no team skins' mutator (I set up the teams to have similar skins from the same pack so I can recognize them without having gaudy red and blue) and run around with Ballistic Weapons. It's a blast, and I hope to do similar things in UT3, but they've taken away our options.
                      Where the heck did you get a "No Team Skins" mutator for UT3?
                      I have been looking all over.
                      Can you supply me a link?
