Do we know if the DLC content can be delivered to users who've bought the boxed version of the game...?

News Comments > UT3 Free Steam Weekend, Sale Price
19. Re: UT3 Free Steam Weekend, Sale Price Mar 5, 2009, 19:33 Morgan19
 
From today's earlier thread, since this one seems to be the focus now:

Just installed the patch.

I'm not sure what "UI tweaks" they've implemented (haven't seen a full list of the changes), but it only seems like it's a different color (dark grey instead of red) and you have more setting options like graphics and sound. The UI itself is still the same bizarre "some options on the top left, some options on the bottom right of the screen" layout.

Just found this: "Major visual and menu flow overhaul for improved useability." I really question that. The graphics of the menu might be different, but otherwise the UI seems exactly the same (except for the aforementioned options changes). Am I missing something?

(EDIT-) The new maps, especially DarkMatch, look fantastic and play really well.

Not so much the Steam version (retail boxes for me!), but I'm actually looking forward to playing this on the PC.

Seth? The main baddie's name is Seth? Why didn't they just call him Steve or Larry? :O

Would be nice if they fixed the issue of trying to connect to a server killing your Internet connection instead... You know, a basic thing that would actually make the game playable.

Perhaps this is the issue?

>> Fixed router related server authentication errors.

I never got into DII, instead focusing on the DOOMs and Baldur's Gates of the time. That being said, I've been tinkering around in Titan's Quest Gold recently and am now really looking forward to this...

News Comments > Activision & "Bullshots"?
2. Re: Activision & Jan 29, 2009, 08:48 Morgan19
 
Do you shun 99% of the food at your supermarket?

I'm just curious, how is this any different than the image doctoring the food industry does? When was the last time you saw a hamburger or salad that looks as good as it does in ads, on the price board, etc.?

Not saying I agree with the practice, but it's not like this is isolated to game advertising...

Hardly.

Turning off vsync only fixes mouse stutter in the ESC menus: mouse controls in game are "by design", as admitted by the game designers themselves, sluggish to "match the console experience".

Someone here had linked to a config file where you can bump up mouse sensitivity to shooter levels, but then stuff like the HUD is way too sensitive instead.

Either way, the controls are still screwy and hardly "responsive as any PC shooter".

One of my internal drives is on the list. I tried following the links and got to the registration page; finished registering, no email, and now the link goes right to a "login failed" when I try and access their email link. Clearing cookies does nothing and it tells me my registration already exists, but I can't use it because it never actually finished registering. I've read the same thing having happened to multiple folks on other boards as well.

Basically, because they make you contact THEM instead of just having the firmware available for download, I can't email them to get it like they say you should.

Awesome. Yay customer service.

10. Higher DPI Jan 15, 2009, 17:19 Morgan19
 
He replaced it with one that has a 2000 DPI and the mouse movent was increased 2 fold.

Do you know if a higher DPI mouse gets rid of the "floaty" feel? I just have a hard time rooting for a single game out of almost three decades' worth I"ve been playing that requires you to upgrade your mouse, of all things, to enjoy adequately.

A little off-topic, but...

Regardless, that's not an option for me (that I know of). I'm still using my faithful Logitech Mouseman Dual Optical for two reasons: 1) it works great with 99.9% of games (Dead Space apparently being the one exception and 2) the thumb button is placed perfectly at the *bottom* of the mouse's left side. My thumb rests right there and it's very easy to click. I've yet to find any modern mice that do that, as most thumb buttons are placed much farther up, more along the middle of the mouse's side: having to move my thumb up to click a button feels horribly awkward and not at all natural.

Yep. Their "we've forced the mouse to be sluggish so you get that 'console experience'" crap absolutely killed the game. Turning vsync off and maxing mouse sensitivity helps the menu speed, but the in-game mouse sluggishness, and then insisting that it's a good thing, is just inexcusable.

Thanks for pointing out that the soundtrack is available for download! I'd played Arcanum a bit back when it first came out, never really enough to remember the score; I'm listening through the mp3s now and it's perfect ambient/background music.

Yet you still didn't post system specs.

Look at my first post, genius...

You still didn't clarify that to a more realistic problem

*sigh* Yes, I did. My post prior to this has an update with a real-world test. You were too busy berating me to see it, I guess?

Think what you want, dude. I was just posting my opinion on how one game vs. the other runs-- I'm not going to get into a bitchfest about this.
