I still get some bad lag after i've been in the game about 5 to 10 min. Its odd and only happens in ut2k4. Anyone else have this problem?

Okay, we've had way too much positive thought here towards UT2K4.... so, I'm going to complain...

In SP, why can't I be any character I want? There are 4 million skins, yet I have to choose between, perhaps, 10? I want to be Malcolm.... having had to try 7 times to beat the bastard at the end of the game, I figure he's bullet proof, so I want to play as him and have that same advantage:P

Why the hell wasn't Onslaught put into the Tournament Ladder of UT2K4?

Best game I've played in ages!

Edit: Speaking of November Subpen, which was wonderful... is that meant to be a submarine in january, or a school bus done in graffiti? And what's with all the subwoofers on the hull? This sub-lookalike just escaped from a pioneer sound-off competition, did it?

And why does everyone who plays CTF only play on Face Classic??

Because the rest of the CTF maps aren't that good.

Oh, several are not bad (Bridge of Fate comes to mind), but, by and large, they cannot compare to the maps in classic...

No lavagiant (WTF????)
No hydro16
Orbital2 in NOT Orbital, and suffers by the comparison.
January isn't worthy to swab November's decks (Neither was December).
No Dreary

Instead we have:

Chrome has tight corridors, rocket launchers and flak cannons galore, and no health or armor. Perfect newbie spam map.
Citadel is the same, but worse (4 health packs on the whole map?)
Colossus was designed as a bombing run map, and it shows.
Maul is unspeakable. Tell me not of Maul. Worst. Map. Ever.
Lostfaith describes how I am starting to feel about Epic's mappers.
MoonDragon is beautiful, but dumb.

and so on. There are just none of the wonderful map designs that led to exciting, tactical gameplay like the ones in classic.

Which is a shame, but because in every other respect, 2k4 is "classic, only better".

This thread makes me smile, especially after all the pre-release bashing UT2k4 got about being "just a worthless upgrade." It's really nice to see what a huge impact it's made with the gaming community and how much the devs and modders are supporting. I can't remember any game that's had this much content thrown at it in its entire run, let alone 6 months.

40. Re: DVD Reissue Jun 16, 2004, 09:01 nin
 
The reissued DVD version of UT2K4 contains both DVDs - the game on the first, and the mod tutorials on the second.

The only differences between the original SE version and the new DVD version are the lack of the headset and shiny aluminum box.

Exactly...comes in a dvd style case.

The mod scene is starting to get very interesting after a long slump becasue everyone wanted to make Counter-Strike knock offs...and a million dollars is on the line

Off Topic:
IMHO I'd rather wait for Tribes:Vengeance... Hopefully my spinfusor and jetpack skills are still up to snuff.

Yea I've been practicing up in T2 for vengence, I hope I get into the closed beta it would be sooo nice.

With all the mods, this could be the only game you need all year. (Well, until HL2 ships, anyways - nothing like a really great singleplayer IMHO.)

Red orchestra already had a new patch which is cool but players are too slow to download it. Not many players now. Maybe tommorrow..nothing beats killing murdering communist pigs by the dozen...

Most leagues, ladders are already removing super weapons from play making UT2004 and Onslaught even less fun. Even many public servers removes them now, gg on killing the game.

"I semi-tried (is that a word? it is now!) Alien Swarm, but got my ass kicked even on the easiest setting. I guess they have a tutorial for a reason."

The new Alien Swarm patch makes the easy setting actually easy/normal now, so its much more playable (before easy = hard, anything more = impossible)

I was so into AS, until my powersupply and motherboard fried (literally, the power connectors smell bad now, and they're charred...)

Me and my friends are huge bombing run fans, but there's really only one server that's consistently good for bombing run ([ci]ogalthorpe's lair). It'd be nice to have more options. I love onslaught and all, but I can't for the life of me figure out why it has 1000% more servers than all the other gametypes except maybe deathmatch.

IMO Epic didn't think the BR gametype through enough. they went for a Sports-styled game yet kept the default weapons in place which really screws with the pace of the game. If you can find one running, go play Instagib BR and you'll see how the game would be really improved by reducing the game to a single weapon. The emphasis should be strictly on the ball handling, defense/offense....not "which weapon would work best right now?"

And why does everyone who plays CTF only play on Face Classic??

i wish I knew.....I wanna slap 'em silly. these are the same guys who think porting DE_Dust and DE_Aztec to UT2k4 is cute.

Air Buccaneers is about the only game I am playing online at the moment out of all my games ( Modded and none modded ).

I do a little bit of online Alien Swarm with a few friends as well.

Both top notch mods that have made Ut2k4 one of the most worth while purchases for a long time.

They reissued it, w/o the headset. My local Best Buy has some...

Does that reissue include the DVD bonus disk with the Map and Mod tutorials? I had a friend ask me about that not so long ago.
