View Full Version : HELP ME! UT FREEZING....

29th Jan 2000, 02:40 AM
During UT single player or multi, the game will freeze and everything and everyone around me is moving and working but i am totally frozen, even after i die i cant move. The only way i solve this is to alt tab out of UT and close UT via alt ctrl del. When i hit alt ctrl del i notice that there are two UTs running or so it says. (dont know if that means anything) I have an 8mb Nvidia Riva TnT agp card, but i have received the same error during software rendering and not direct 3d. Do i have to download new drivers or what? IM LOST!! Sorry for the long post, PLEASE RESPOND AND HELP ME! THX!

Same thing here man. I've been looking for the solution for a long time, but have found nothing that helps. The only info I can offer is this: at least for me, this only happens on about half of UT's maps. The other half are fine. For instance, Fractal and Curse][ don't work, but Liandri and Face do. When I played around with drivers for my TNT2 I somehow switched that; the maps that didn't work before then worked, but the others didn't. So it is a TNT problem. I emailed Epic about it some time ago and they could give me no useful information. So I think we're just screwed. Sorry.

Same problem (or very similar). I complete rebuild my system with different parts and it still freezes (not a hardware problem). It is software, errrr, that's what I hope!

Yeah, for some reason Unreal was just made for Glide. That's curious, considering all the people out there who don't have 3dfx cards.
Anyhow, I've been playing around with it, and I set the cache size in UT's advanced options to 32. I did have it at 288, 'cause I read somewhere that it should be 2/3 of your RAM, and my RAM is 384. Now UT seems a bit more stable for some reason, even though it's not quite as smooth as it was.

Hmmm...the problem must software then, because I have a V3 3000 and I am experiencing the same problem. Except, when my game locks I have to reboot. It will not even let me alt-tab or ctrl-alt-del.

So, back to the drawing boards on the theories. If any one figures anything out, let me know.

How do you get to the Advanced Options?

I couldn't find them.

Console -> preferences

In the future, you can do a search of the forums (link below) for "advanced options" and I'm sure you'll turn up more posts than you'd know what to do with - all about the Advanced options...

Yeah, they come to snuff the Rooster...
