    U4E

    Yeah, I think. Whats U4E? I saw these when I went to download some stuff for UT, but I did not know what they meant, so I did not download anything. (I want to downloaded some stuff for UT.)

    U4E is Unreal 4 Ever, an awesome weapons mod for UT. You should get it, even though it is 28 MB for version 6. It is well worth it :D

    Welcome aboard :)

    You will find lots of new and confusing acronyms and abbreviations here, so it can be tricky to get up to speed at first.

    OK, you know about U4E - Unreal4Ever, a replacement weapons pack.

    PuF = Planet Unreal Forums
    mod = third party add-on program for the game
    RA = Rocket Arena, a 1v1 or 2v2 duelling mod
    TO = Tactical Ops, a paramilitary type mod
    SF = Strike Force, see above :)
    GOTY = Game of the Year Edition, the upcoming UT re-release
    pub = public server, somewhere anyone can play
    LPB = low-ping bastard, a player with a fast connection
    HPW = high-ping whiner, a player with a slow connection
    RL = rocket launcher
    SB = shield belt
    DA = damage amp, (alternatively, DragonAsh)
    xloc = translocator
    O = Offense, attacking in CTF
    D = Defense, guarding the flag in CTF
    NC = Nali City, a website to download maps from

    Please add some more people!

    WTF = What the F@ck (alternative : WAnk the Flag, a great mod for UT that has yet to be coded , consists only of screenshots and the twisted ideas in WAnk's brain)

    IH = impact hammer
    FragPU = biweekly fragfest at 7pm PST every other Friday, usually CTF
    LK = Lord Khaine (see also: ego) ;)

    Okay...

    JEM = JuiceEggsMcKenna

    RT = Real Tournament
    WFA = Weapons Factory Arena

    Welcome aboard Crono. You'll find lots of great info here...but be sure to check out @leaner's FAQ (check his signature in his post for the link) and the PlanetUnreal front page for the UT tweaks link.

    Be sure to come by #planetunreal in your UT chat browser. Everyone hangs out there and goofs off before jumping into games. It's fun to frag with people you know and newcomers are always welcome.

    Check out the PU front page for server links. You'll find a link to the Roost. It's a server where you'll find a lot of players from this forum. Be forewarned...many times the players are very very good. But most will be helpful to you.

    Oh crap, I'm an acronym :)

    "see because of me, now they have a warning" JEM pointing out the section on the Intel website that says "DONT EVER DOWNGRADE THE FIRMWARE ON YOUR FILESERVER TO A LOWER VERSION THAN SHIPPED"
