    Mark Rein Stated DX10 Will be In UT3

    Did you read the DX 10 commentsin those two articles? there is no mention at all of new graphic features utilising DX10.. just mention of "support" which to me just means the game will run on it.

    Mark even mentions that there really were no great graphic improvements they could add with DX10, and dx 10 players are still a very small percentage of the gaming community.

    Since it's been proven already that ut3 runs faster under xp anyway, I don;t see a huge gamer advantage of moving to vista and dx10.

    Personally, I'd like to see dx10 officially made available for XP... then there would be a reason to really ustilize it's additional features.


      I agree with about having DX10 on XP, vista is a steaming pile of horse ****, with some flecks of goat **** mixed in.

      There are no graphic improvements. There may be a small speed bump going from DX9 mode in vista to DX10 mode in vista, but then again, DX9 in XP is considerably faster than either versions of DX under vista


        HDR in Multiplayer sucks, anyway. Take a look at CS: Source, they turn it off in Multiplayer...


          Not going to happen.
          Microsoft have stated that dx10 is build around vista.

          There`s no way i could see them doing it for xp as xp prob req some recoding and there not going to do that when vista is allready out.
          Theres no money for them in xp anymore.


            Everything I have heard is that DX10 with UT3 will use only some of DX10's rendering enhancements IE get more FPS, and will not change the overall graphics.

            GDF? Game defininition file.. erm, another MS proprietariness? Sounds more like game identification thingy.

              At this rate it will just be like GOW. A tick box that does nothing by drop 20fps from your frame rate. There's no point in whining for it.

                  It's just a file that holds information about the game to display it in Vista's "My Games" folder.

                  Basically an icon, a description, an age rating and some other stuff.

                  Oh yeah, and they messed it up on release by setting the age rating to "Early Childhood"... so I guess that's what they fixed...

                  np: Boxcutter - Silver Birch Solstice (Oneiric)

                    Well thats why you turn it off, if they could turn off the textures they would.


                      Of course you turn many things off in MP games, for better framerate, visibility...

                      The difference between Source games and UT3 is if you max all out.
                      Source games look very nice with HDR, UT3 looks like you suffer from Cataract (blurry vision, blurry lights), bloomed by UT3

                      This is obviously not an Unreal Engine problem because Bioshock and Rainbow Six Vegas look even with all maxed out very nice.

                      Seems like it is intended, but why for a primary MP game?

                        you add to favorites by click add to favorites on the history tab. You can only add what's in your history.


                          I would like to see a add "IP to favorites".

                            may i just sugest tough to be able fully tweak graphics.
                            like just turning on dx10 without dx10 only capable eye candy for example.
                            and to be able tweak all settings like
                            object detail
                            texture detail
                            model detail
                            etc etc ;>
                            ofc add option to high detail portals
                            and low detail for many i believe kills fps permantly would be great atleast to have an option for it
                            despite the fact it might get fixed the permanent drop in fps

                              Demo playback:

                              - Demos can now be paused.

                              - By default, demo playback now runs at full speed and interpolates in between demo frames using the normal client simulation code. The old frame-locked method is still available by passing ?disallowinterp. Timedemos are unaffected by this change.

                              - Removed unnecessary top settings page (can use tabs at the top of the settings to navigate).

                              - Added a Messages tab to the mid game menu.

                              - Friends messages now saved until explicitly deleted.

                              - Finer control over mouse sensitivity, using an edit box instead of a slider.

                              - Improved mid game menu performance (don't render world behind it).

                              - Added version number to main menu.

                              - Fixed binding gamepad/joystick keys (you must set AllowJoystickInput=1 in the [WinDrv.WindowsClient] of your UTEngine.ini to enable gamepads/joysticks).

                              - Filter settings are now saved to the .ini file

                              - Pure and Locked filter options now default to "Any"

                              - Fixed flickering when downloading files

                              - Fixed up the GDF project for Vista


                              - Added the killer weapon to victim messages.

                              To change the crosshair used for all weapons, add the following lines to the [utweapon] section of the UTWeapon.ini file:

                              CustomCrosshairCoordinates=(U=276,V=84,UL=22,VL=25 )

                              where the CustomCrosshairCoordinates have U and V as the offsets into the crosshair texture (UI_HUD.HUD.UTCrosshairs), and UL and VL specify the size of the texture area to use.

                              To use a different crosshair for a specific weapon, simply add those two lines to the appropriate weapon specific section in UTWeapon.ini.


                              - Implemented STUN support (Simple Traversal of UDP Through Network Address Translators) to enable clients and servers to connect from behind a NAT.

                              - Fixed team scores very rarely not updating for a client.

                              - Bullseye stats are now properly recorded.

                              - Fixed clients not travelling to downloaded maps correctly.

                              - Fixed the client and server getting into a loop sending each other close messages in some situations.

                              - Quick match incorporates player rating into search decision.

                              - Fixed issue where Vista clients would not receive all servers from a server browser search.

                              - Applied proper fix to suppressing voice on dedicated servers.

                              - Fixed issues with players not getting on right team in Duel and Duel+Survival if a player leaves in certain timing windows during map transitions.

                              - Fixed previous level PRIs showing up on the scoreboard/leaderboard after the client travels (making it look like players have already scored lots of points when those clients are in fact still loading)

                              - Fixed losing your custom character mesh after changing teams during a match.

                              - Fixed HTTP redirection for mod autodownloading

                              - Implemented DUEL match stat reporting for gamespy ladder

                              - Fixed "open" console command not working when an Internet server address is specified

                              - Added "BecomeActive" exec to switch from spectator to player

                              Server Administration:

                              - Reduced tick rate for dedicated servers with no clients (saves CPU on idle servers).

                              - Dedicated servers do not require CD keys.

                              - Added -configsubdir= command line option to cause .ini files to be loaded/saved from the specified subdirectory of Game\Config\

                              - Added QueryPort configuration and command line option.

                              - Added an "AdminChangeOption [option] [value]" console command for server admins. This allows changing most simple .ini values (e.g. GoalScore) from the client. This command will not override URL options. The change will take effect after the next map change.

                              - Added an "AdminPublishMapList" console command for server admins. This overrides the server's map list for the current game type with the one on the client that used the command.

                              - Uses GameReplicationInfo.ServerName if set for the name of the server on the server browser.

                              - Added "AdminForceVoiceMute" and "AdminForceVoiceUnMute": Stops/Starts a player from sending voip to others

                              - Added "AdminForceTextMut" and "AdminForceTextUnMute": Stops/Starts a player from send text messages to others

                              - Updated AdminPlayerList to show the PlayerID of the players on the server.

                              - Updated Kick/Ban to allow for using either the player name or the id

                              - Fixed servers advertising as the wrong gametype if the gametype is changed without restarting the server

                              Map Specific

                              - Fixed WAR-Avalanche terrain LOD popping issue on high end PCs.

                              - Fixed bots rarely getting stuck in mid air in DM-Gateway in the city section.

                              - Fixed some VCTF-Suspense pathing issues.

                              - Fixed issues with circular lift on DM-Deimos.

                              - Fixed translucent mesh sorting issues in DM-Gateway.

                              - Fixed various map collision bugs

                              - Improved bot AI with Leviathan in Torlan


                              - Fixed a bug that could cause too many bots to be added to co-op matches in some cases.

                              - Added support for seamless travel interrupting a travel to start another travel. This fixes single player breaking if the host selects the next mission before the clients have finished travelling to the mission selection level

                              - Fixed extra copy of a character when a human player leaves a co-op game at the right time.

                              - Changed network loss during single player to result in player signed in locally.


                              - Added a SupportedGameTypes field to UTUIDataProvider_Mutator. If some entries are in this array, the mutator will only be visible in the menus if the selected gametype is found in the array.

                              - Fixed custom gametype midgame menus not being used correctly.

                              - Shipping script compiler now allows localized/config defaultproperties because otherwise autodownloaded mods have no way for their localized/config variables to work.

                              - Added Get/SetSpecialValue() stubs to Object to allow mods to expose values that can be modified without creating a dependancy.

                              - Added support for custom gametypes showing up on their own in the server browser. The game class needs to implement UpdateGameSettings() and call GameSettings.SetStringSettingValue() to set CONTEXT_GAME_MODE to CONTEXT_GAME_MODE_CUSTOM. Then, in the gametype's menu .ini data, set GameSearchClass to "UTGameSearchCustom".

                              - Fixed cooking a map sometimes deleting all other mod files in the Published directory

                              - Fixed bPostRenderIfNotVisible flag
