then let's see how good you are!
on what servers do you play?

Make sure you get a screenshot of the end of the game so we know you're not lying :)

UT is the top shooter in my book, like playing with the level designer too, once I've done a level I'm proud of I may actually let someone else see it.

Facing Worlds is top I play that level for ages.


Look at the size of that thing!

yea, what servers do you guys play on. I want to see some good competition. I personally find myself playing on the DvNA server a lot.
July 26, 2001 10:07:20 PM

I don't stay on any particular servers. I just look for a new game each time. We should host a large game for all of THG to join one night that'd be kinda cool.

The problem is, one "night" for you might be afternoon for me, morning for someone else, etc.
Good though, though.

sounds good to me, name the date and time
July 27, 2001 7:38:28 PM

I'll be on vacation for a week so anytime after Aug 6th sounds great. I leave tomorrow. I'll have my laptop with me, but unfortunately I'm not very good at UT on a laptop.

Most people on this forum are in North/South America thought, aren't they?

Yeah, but I'm just bringing up the possibility.

CTF or DM? for THG UT.

Both would be cool. (:

you'll get your screenshot.
just pick on what level you wish me to play and with how many bots and i'll take the challenge!
conveyor?deck16?curseII?.....which one...

i love UT, problem is, i dont have huge numbers of free hours available, and only a 56k modem, so my skill level at best is around "skilled" net games lag badly and everyone online is far too good.

what i do like are all the pretty mutators.... if you have some free time, try the following
1. Uwar mutator (with regenerate OFF)
2. kill 2 heal
3. mutator toolbox for fast item respawn
4. moregore (set to 10!)
5. fatboy
6. matrix moves
7. UT4ever (specially the nuker, freezer, BFG20K & the QSG!)

use these and u will see the most violent bloody excessive game ever.
P.S. ive also editied the .ini file so my favorite map CTF-FACE has 32 bots in it :) 

with all these things running i get around 40fps. not bad, considering the level of death and destruction and the sheer number of things to render (body parts)

Nto me :( , Im from little old England lol, dam timezone, I used top play in a Q2 clan and everyone else was in USA, I ended up starting clan matches at like midnight or later as I'm around 5 hours or so behind!

Next time you wave - use all your fingers
July 30, 2001 3:58:31 PM

I think us folks in good ol UK are actually 5 hrs ahead, hence 7pm + 5hrs = 12 midnight = wife in pi**ed off mode because I'm still playing UT and she wants to go to bed.

HyperBlast, 16 godlike bots :)

July 31, 2001 7:17:18 AM

you'r on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
just sit back get yourself a bowl of popcorn and watch!!!!
but hyperblast is optimal for,like 4-8 players, don't you think 16 is a little bit too much......don't get me wrong here, i am turning back but get me something more logical....

Yeah, you're right.
Orion's Barricade then, that's a decent map.

I took on 16 Inhuman bots and won 20-13 in Grit :) 
16 Godlike bots are on the menu for tonight, don't know how I'll do, never gone against anything above Adept until last night. lol

July 31, 2001 8:33:10 PM

16 godlike!! man that's one pretty handfull of determined bots we'r talking about here..i think i will try the same.
i guess computer bots aim so accuratly that sometimes it is really not logical.........quite different from human players. how can you kill a falling player from morpheus with the enforcer??????bots always do just kills, oh wait it is
July 31, 2001 8:38:41 PM

Yeup, it's easy to make good bots. The difference with UT is that they're so freaking smart, not just the 'one shot from across the map with the sniper rifle' type of bots that are the highest difficulty in some other games.

But are you scared of 16 godlike bots, Mr I'm So Good?

Anyway, anyone like instagib? I played it since UT beta 1, was getting quiet good in it.

I like instagib, its a fun change from the norm. I am still wondering when we are all going to get on a server and play? I am available pretty much anytime after 5 MST.
August 1, 2001 4:28:26 PM

w00t!! I beat 16 Godlike bots last night in Hyperblast. Tried to get a screenshot and my computer froze :( 
I'll try to get another one, but didn't feel like going through all the emotional strain again.

go to your unrealtournament.ini file
go down to the player mode areas.
change min players to 32.

THEN see how long u survive on hyperblast!

August 2, 2001 8:09:11 AM

now that's some serious [-peep-].
32 bots on hyperblast, what do you all stand hand in hand just waiting for someone to fire a rocket.......and boom!!! here's an easy monster kill.....numbers aren't what makes this difficult, i don't think you could even know what's going on around you with 32 bots in a small map.
just try hyperblast with like a "normal" number of bots godlike.
i just want to see you and your hamster in hyperblast with 32 bots......oups i guess you'll become history just before i could even start the game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
August 2, 2001 8:17:23 AM

smart bots, well i don't really agree, i would say they aren't really, you could easily be playing hide and seek with another bot each one of you firing and then hiding just waiting for the other to stand up and fire in his turn and the bot will still do that...without thinking, or acting quite smart, so you just need to strafe left and hit it differetnly for exemple, and here he gets smaked by your shot...but the thing that makes them really powerful is the fact that after the masterfull level the damage you inflict on them is seriously less than what they could do to you...a close flak shot used to be fatal, but now you need 2 just to kill a bot, while he with a single shot, even if it didn't hit you 100% will kill you7 directly....
August 2, 2001 4:23:43 PM

Have you even played against Xan? He's really, really smart.

And name one game with better AI than UT.

Whoever thinks up a good sig for me gets a prize :wink:
August 5, 2001 7:36:07 PM

yeah, xan is like a really good bot...
and i think with the new UT patch, it's bots are really good.
but with the tactical ops, you could feel that they aren't really really thinking, it's like they do this and that's it...just memorise it and you'll have no problem.
August 6, 2001 10:41:48 AM

I would have made the assumption that 99% of the posters would have finished UT by now and therefore played Xan. He's got good AI but his voice and comments got right up my nose.


Look at the size of that thing!
August 6, 2001 11:33:43 AM

if just his voice and comments are just up your noise this will be just fine, but the problem with xan is that every -peep- thing he fires is just right up your -peep- .:) 
August 6, 2001 6:21:20 PM

Tactical ops? Why are you saying the AI in a specific mod sucks? I never use TO anymore.

August 7, 2001 7:49:39 AM

well, while playing TO against bots, wich i did just when i bought it and then one of the reasons i stoped laying it was because of it's AI , and beleive me you could feel so repetitive yourself because of the really repetitive bots in TO, UT developpers tried to make them smarter by creating 2 or 3 ways in wich they could think but that's it, no bot could hide and uses the sniper silently, or could hide behind something waiting for the right moment to kill...they just rush out to the location and here goes the shooting...i don't think that's pretty smart.
August 7, 2001 4:32:22 PM

Of course not, but there aren't any games that are any better. You have to exclude single-player modes, of course. Not fair to compare UT when there's no set pattern, when you could have a different game where you have to walk down this hall after hitting this switch, etc. and then the four-armed monster is waiting behind a certain pillar.
