    Man is UT taking forever to install...and its just putting in stupid maps i'll prob never use. 2, TWO, cd's geez I hope I don't have to install them both...no jewel cases either, just cover slips. Ugh. Probably doesn't help that I am online at the same time...with 4 browsers open, and a computer that needs to be rebooted. Oh well.

    OOO!!! It's done! Now to get directx, the mod, reboot...ugh.

    Anyways, I am here anouncing that I am no longer a wanabe n00b with balanced views. I am here to TAFF BABY!!!! YEA!!!! 8)

    See you soon!!!

    OMG...I am NEVER going to be able to play this game...

    A HUGE download for the UT patch.

    122M download for the UT mod.

    Then the patch? Another 34M???

    And the little 'extra helping' files, several megs there too.

    I should be DONE with my just concieved today TUT map by the time I actually get to play at all!!!

    But getting to play...priceless.

    BTW gave up on directx 9...UT says I should get 'standard' resolution.
    (yea right!)

    Are you on dialup?

    Do play some UT before installing TUT, though. Make sure your UT installation is working properly. You don't have to waste the bots or anything, just run around and shoot some.

    If you are on dial-up, I was when I first got into Thievery, I did the DL at night, and let it go all night. DSL now. I highly recommend a DL manager, like Get Right DL manager or something. You can stop the DL, or pause, and resume the DL, at a later time, if need be. That's what I used, glad I did. Sorry if you know all this.
    It's a pain to not use something like that, get to 99% of a DL and have it screw up on you.

    It's 56k for me all the WAY!!! OK, here's the update:

    I did try to see if UT would start, I haven't actually played yet. I got a lot of Chineese and bad graphics, so now I am using UT's renderer, on LOW resolution, it looks OK now.

    Apparently I have the latest version on the CD, I wish it would have actually said that in the readme file...

    Gonna let this baby go all night and hope its done in the AM.

    UGH...dude, this game better rock. I can see now why you get a bunch of ragers all of the time. Damn this takes forever.

    Maybe the topic for this shoulda been: I won't be around for a couple of days...

    of course, we have a 0-tolerance policy toward ragers, so i'd steer well clear of that idea if i were you - regardless of what you think of the game 8)

    I hardly think we need to worry about that here, Thwark. Kiech has been around for a bit, and seems quite a good-natured fellow.

    confusco say "Wise man download hundreds of megs over time so they be ready when 10bux goes bye-bye."

    If UT itself is running that badly, you're going to have a hell of a time running TUT... I can run UT at 1280x1024 with all the details maxed fine, but TUT is unbearable at anything over 800x600, with detail textures and the like turned off.

    I think TUT is more connection based in its speed than PC based... a mate of mine has it running pretty well on his Celeron 333 with a Geforce 2mx at 800x600 with max settings on a 128k connection.

    It runs horribly for me whether online or off. I don't understand why. I had to tweak it to all hell just to make it acceptable. Even UT2003 runs better with all the details maxed :P

    I know it runs worse on my computer than most, but TUT always runs somewhat worse than UT itself :P
