My system is overkill for UT3 E6850 @ 3.6 & 8800GTX SLI setup and the game slowed down way to much on the PhysX maps. On top of that the map I tried looked really bad.

(tried hte one that is not tornado related)

On a side note I also tried the warmonger - operation downtown destruction open beta. My eye still hurt from playing the tutorial. It's a beta so I can't juge it to harshly but when the tutorial makes you want to uninstall...not good.

I read one review of physx in UT3 and with a physx card the framerates drop by 50% plus. Horrendous. I'm still waiting for a game that justifies the physx card. If UT3 cannot then what game can?

There is checkbox for something called "frame smoothing" I thinks that is what it's called.

Well on my system I had to remove the checkmark or the game would crash after 5 minutes of online play.

I don't think that options was there before.

PS. The PhysX level are crap...AMD better buy AGEIA fast because everything that was supposed to show of the cards sucks except maybe ageia islanf in graw 2.

Oh it's compatible, alright-- except now after the patch, my mouse's X- and Y-axes don't work at all. The mouse buttons themselves work great, but moving it doesn't do a thing, and I don't see any new options for getting it back.

Whee!

It's backwards compatible.

Direct your eyes to the left side of the page, where you will see a 'Submit News' link. Use it.

Or at the very top of the page... Right above the page content.

I said the beta patch was available in the previous ut3 thread 2 days ago:

I don't actually know whether or not this patch breaks network compatibility, but aside from an early UT99 patch which introduced new (and much needed) netcode, Epic has been fairly religious about keeping network compat across patch levels in the UT games, I think.

Does anyone know if this patch is like 2142, for example, where the servers you play on have to match your version? I'm just wondering how it being "beta" would affect online playability.
