I'm not sure if I can play it. What are the system requirements?

Yea, its pretty nifty detailed and fun to play. The only prob I have is to kill someone with guns. Looks like I empty entire clips on peeps and dont hit em at all. :rolleyes:

But besides that, its much fun to play, and yes, "road kill" is the way to be :D

Just checking -

When UT2k3 came out, everyone was drooling over that, but in the press for UT 2k4 they talk about the last one (i.e. UT 2k3) not being successful or working well or ... well, just not very good.

What gives?

I drove thru a a narrow area and mowed down like ten people.

Man I saw some screens of it the other day, and after a couple minutes I had to go and get a towl to wipe up the desk. But alas it is too big of a download for me, and my crapping computer probably wouldn't be able to take in all that goodness anyways.

And just to add to that 2003 discussion, I never even played it because It was almost, if not just like the original. So I passed with a smile on my face while playing the original UT :)

It is looking quite good.
But I don't think they should have vehicles

Would anyone have a spare link to this good ole demo?
Sounds intruiging...or at least something to catch my interest for a good half hour ;)

Never mind, I found the system requirements. I can't play it.

Damn you, 600 MHz processer!:mad:

Just played my first game. All I have to say is,



WOAH.

Feh, I dont like UT2k4 too much. The vechicles are fun, but the shooting absolutely sucks. I guess I'm too used to Call of Duty-like shooting.

I probably will get Farcry instead.

I enjoyed it, though I do prefer the shooting styles of Halo over it. still, good game.

I have the demo. The vehicals are awesome and fun but the in-game announcements are sort of the same and I like the new weapons they have. I think it's cool.

I didn't like the way UT2003 felt...it felt more like a sports game rather than the sci-fi feel of the original UT. UT2004 on the other hand brings back the great UT feel, and the vehicles fit right in!

Heh...I can play the demo with the settings and screen resolution maxed out on this computer without the game even momentarily flinching, but on my old P3 866MHz Radeon 7200 system, I have to lower the settings way down before it's playable (although it is playable).

Really I think this 200 MB demo is a lot more fun and worth downloading than the 500 MB Far Cry demo...just overall more fun...

It was awesome! :D Especially the graphics! But whenever i play the instant action, my game freezes and makes some sound and hangs and i have to restart.

How do i fix this?

Tyrion - You actually place FarCry? Thats the worst demo I have ever played in my life! They use Direct3d for goodness sake. That spoils the whole demo with slow down and bad graphics. Waste of hours of downloading if you ask me.

I'll download Ut2004 later. Seems quite good! :D

Some one make a Ut2k4 pic thread!


Assault is freaking cool if your the attacking team.....

Agen

I hope it's more like UT and less like 2k3... unlikely though :(
Don't think I'll bother DLing the demo :-/

Boba Rhett
02-18-2004, 05:23 PM
Oh it feels a lot more like UT, Term. Please try it! :eek:

Yeah school and work have burried me. I was mostly on the COD forums to pass time while LF was down for so long. Not alot of action going on in the COD forums IMO.

I think we should all play a game sometime.

I was just having fun - launched an aVRIL at two guys in a Hellbender and killed them both, then I got in one of those buggy things, and cut two guys in half with the claw-things.

Download the demo if you haven't already. Now.

Yeah, I thought that was pretty neat ;)

I'd advise practicing Single Player for a bit first, before you take it online.

I went straight into MP and was totally confused. Then I spent a good few hours in SP with the bots and got used to everything. Then when I went back online I was one of the top players in my team :)

Anyway, I'm up for a game some time - this thing is great fun. It's going on my shopping list right next to Battlefield:Vietnam :D

UT2k4 also uses Direct3D. :p Well, UT2k4 uses mostly DirectX8 with some DirectX9 capabilties. Farcry uses DirectX9.

By the way, do you happen to have an Nvidia card? They run DirectX9 horrible(Thier fault, not the games).
