UTgoty probs after reinstalling

Archived from groups: alt.games.unreal.tournament (More info?)

Hi folx!
Sorry, this is not my native tongue...
I got a prob. I reeinstalled my system, WinXP pro SP2. UT2K4 worx fine,
but i cant get utgoty work correctly. D3D doesnt work, ok, OpenGL worx, but
this sux, (graphical errors, performance).
I just copied my backup on the new system and it doesnt work. I get system
crashes, hanging system or a frame every 15 seconds. Its the same Nvidia
Driver that i used before, no hacked driver.
Oh damn, i wanna play my most loved game again...
BTW: is it usual that the Monitor refresh rate is different between D3D and
openGL? My Maxdata\Belinea CRT 19'' cant store this, so i have to change it
manually?

========================================

So, nochmal auf deutsch...
Ich hab also den gesicherten Ordner einfach rüberkopiert und damit fing es
an. Nach allen Problemen, wie oben beschrieben, habe ich UT nochmal von den
Originaldisks eingespielt, das Update gemacht, und immer noch die gleiche
Scheiße. Das kanns doch nicht sein. Sorry, ich kenne mich mit Windows
Schüsseln aus, aber das übersteigt meinen Horizont. Was macht da Direct
Draw? Spinne ich, oder Microsoft? Bei 800x600 funktionierts noch, sobald
ich bei D3D auf 1024x768 oder 1280x960 umschalte, trutt der Fehler auf.

Total genervt.

achso:
Graphics Card: Nvidia 4280 Driver: 71.89, XPro, Athlon 1800@1500 512cl2 ram


genervt,

Danke für Hilfe... Klaus

    Don't worry, it isn't mine either. I do suggest you use a spell
    checker next time.

    So.... OpenGL works, right? Why not use it then?

    Uhm, i suspected that, why dont u help me?

    No, i dont wanna use openGL, cause its on windoze machines slower, and even
    worse, it has graphical errors, that i dont wanna have. OK, its not
    official, but u can google for it. I even tried the new unofficial Drivers
    from Nvidia, with openGL2.0, but i cant see anything better.

    Is it that my fault that i didnt properly uninstall my drivers from the
    registry? -? That cant be my fault, cause i eliminated all registry entries
    that had anything to do with the graphicsdriver and UTgoty.

    -- Might be that i have a hardware prob, but i never overclocked my system,
    nore the graphicscard. Even - if i had, why is UT2K4 still working fine???

    I apreciate any help. - Klaus

    did i get it correctly that ut2004 and other games do work correctly? Did
    you test your drivers using dxdiag? do you experience the problems only when
    playing or also during the intro? try to reduce all graphic-settings to the
    minimum with a resolution of 1024x768x32, just to see if it works.
    feel free to mail me if you want, you can do this in german.

    Apparently, the information you gave wasn't enough.

    There is a better OpenGL renderer available for windows. I'm sure
    there are windows users here that can help you out there.

    Messing around in the registry can cause all kind of problems...

    i would suggest you remove every graphikdriver that might exist in your
    system, there could be more than one, so check it. i once ran into trouble
    when i had a driver installed via windows-update and tried to update this
    one with a nvidia reference driver. this resulted in having two drivers
    installed in the system, so make sure you remove really every component.
    then reinstall the driver, you might have to reinstall directx as well.

    genau das habe ich getan. ich habe den 75.90 nvidia treiber wieder
    deinstalliert und habe jetzt wieder die offizelle 71.89 version drauf. alle
    anderen games liefen problemlos. AOEII, Stronghold2, UT2K4, Empire Earth2
    Demo, Far Cry, etc.. Die benutzen alle DirectDraw, nur UTgoty zickt rum.
    Als ich es leid war, habe ichs neu installiert, und wieder der gleiche
    Mist. (von den 2 originaldisks)
    Ich werd bald noch wahnsinnig. Vielleicht funzt es ja wieder, wenn ich mein
    System neu aufsetze, das bedeutet jedoch 2 Tage Arbeit, da mein XPpro schon
    eineinhalb Jahre seinen guten Dienst leistet.

    Naja, gestern habe ichs nochmal gespielt, aber die Grafikfehler, speziell
    bei FacingWorlds unter OpenGL nerven einfach...

    ja, supi, dann bin ich ja nicht alleine. ich kriegs nicht gebacken.
    Unfassbar, Ich dachte bisher, dass ich mit windoze systemen auskenne, aber
    nix is. goty funzt nicht mehr. wenn jemand eine Problemlösung hat, soll er
    sie poten
    achja, bevor ich das vergesse @meltdown... du kannst dich langsam
    verpissen, so lange du nix zur Hilfe beiträgst ist das echt tinnef.

    bis dann - Klaus
