I found UT3 to be a massive disappointment. UT99 is still great fun to play though.

I would say no. Gears of War is their superstar. Really sad, as I loved UT2k3 and UT2k4. Onslaught was such an awesome game-type. I loved pancaking people with the Manta, so many fun hours playing all those maps when the community was huge. Oh well

I crave the old UT04 days so badly! I loved all the custom maps, mods, skins, weapons etc etc. Beyond fun. The most fun game I have ever played hands down. (Too young for 99)

UT99 GOTY is always one of those games that goes on after a fresh install for me and is currently installed on the PC (Y) Loved doing kamikaze and using sentry turrets with ChaosUT :D

Try Strangelove Capture the Flag.

For those who do not know,
You ride redeemer rockets till (1) you jump off (2) fuel runs out (3) someone shoots you down (4) you fly into a wall and explode (5) you fly into someone else's rocket.

I still enjoy it. The great thing is that the community is still actively supporting UT99 and the original Unreal with updates (with the blessing of Epic Games), adding support for modern graphics and audio technology and other improvements.

Ah UT original, the best UT game they released.
Used to love the MH servers, there was one with a lot of custom mods including the strangelove mod but it was pretty different, you were actually on a rocket ship, could fire bullets, missles, arm/unarm a nuke, jump off, speed up and slow down, etc. which was really good fun!
Too bad there's not all that many servers these days.

Everyone at the old studio I worked at, we were using Unreal 3 and when we were ****ed off at something we would all play UDK(UT3). I personally never liked Unreal enough to actually go out and buy it, but its actually pretty fun to play as a free game that comes with your development tools.

Why? I used to play UT99 heavily then i went to UT3 and honestly it feels like the same game just with better graphics albeit they took some guns out (like the green disk spinning thing with the beam i missed that)
but hell afaik you can lower the settings on ut3 and it will practically look like UT99 to some degree :p

Hmm i wonder if UT3 has that volcano CTF map that was fun

Hey guys, I randomly came across this thread while googling for something UT related. Thought I'd register an account and let you know that UT99 is still alive and well, just not so much with public servers.

Most players are on IRC (Internet Relay Chat), we have several "Pickup Game" channels for CTF, TDM, Instagib CTF, Sniper Arena CTF, Domination, pretty much all the favorites. There's an irc bot you use commands such as !join and !leave and then once enough players join, captains are selected, they pick teams/server and you go play (teamspeak 3 required in most chans)

Our main website is www.ProUnreal.org and the IRC is irc.globalgamers.net (or irc.utchat.com), if you aren't familiar with mIRC, you can use the webchat to get started: http://webchat.globalgamers.net/?channels=mlut
Alternatively you could also join it through the Chat section in the game itself, it'll connect to our IRC by default.

The channels: #MLUT (Normal Weapons CTF) #TDMPickups (Normal Weapons TDM), #iPug (All InstaGib/Sniper Arena Dom/Others)

Now is a very good time to get back into it because a very talented Coder TimTim has taken the idea of "NewNet" from UT2k4 and gone way beyond it for Ut99. You've probably heard of ZeroPing...the buggy crappy client-side hitscan mod...well this is that, but 1000x better. It fixes ALL guns to be based on 15 ping, lag free movement/dodging, translocator, EVERYTHING. You can have 200 ping and play basically like it's a LAN server. It's still in beta but it's getting better and better each release. You can read about the changes and planned changes here: http://www.prounreal.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=81016

Feel free to message me on IRC (I'll be [51]chicken-) if you have any questions, we also have a download available for those who need the game all setup with the newest fixes/renderers so no need to go googling and finding patches and fixes for everything.

The game modes mostly, I didn't enjoy the new 'Warfare' mode and I felt the SP campaign was too heavily focused on it.

I started to play it again online, after some 10 years pause. It is little better with modern Internet connection, but still laggy with many servers.

Still best gaming experience - newer versions look better, but gameplay is somehow worse. It is hard to say what is exact thing (are things) wich make(s) UT99 best for playing. For instance, I remember some announcements that newer versions will have very detailed face expressions of players. But instead it, we got opposite - smaller players and nothing from face details in fact. Sound is best too in UT99 - I don't get why, but it is most fun, and voices in later versions just sound worse and text is dumber. Maybe not relevant for many, but I like those (often taken from movies) old fashion taunts.

What is bad this days is online cheating: on few servers populated I see many cheaters, and worst is that they are often server admins self. There are installed some anti-cheats, but as I see, nothing detects X InstantHook - what costs more than org UT. Sad is that some make money from spoiling game.

..
Also, i'd recommend using a third party renderer over the default d3d one, such as the one here: [url="http://www.cwdohnal.com/utglr/"]http://www.cwdohnal.com/utglr/[/url] As it offers more options, such as AA/AF without having to force it in the driver control panel and others.

Good renderer. I installed, and is improvement. However, some servers will reject you detecting it. I guess because there are some cheat OpenGL renderers around - with transparent walls for instance.

So, I put back org renderer, and tried again that server, what was a worth - for the first time on Internet had really low lag. Ping was 32, and raised not much.

UT 04 is my favorite game of all time. All the custom servers with custom maps, guns and vehicles! Beyond FUN! UT3 was fun, but not as fun as 2004. Maybe because I missed all the custom stuff.

I hope Epic creates a new unreal tournament game with the unreal 4 engine for win/mac/linux/ps4/xbone, that would be awesome.
