    I recently had problems with Ut and uninstalled it. It will
    not reinstall no matter what. Different folder different
    drive different everything. It installs successfully, goes
    to detect 3d device, finds Hercules Prophet II pro and
    the Ut logo comes up and it dies there. I have removed
    the program and everything I could find associated with it
    many times, tried software rendering...it won't even start
    it safe/troubleshooting mode. The disc is ok, I installed
    it in another computer to test it. The 436 patch was also
    installed. It would not install in the original or with
    the patch. Athlon tbird 1.1 128mb ram sblive gamer 5.1

    Perhaps have you forget something!

    Try to delete the Epic registry key,if it is in the windows registry it's that your problem!

    DO NOT delete any registry keys others tham UT (you are dealing with the core of Windows here)

    start -> run -> then type "regedit"

    Now search for "Unreal" and "Epic" and delete all keys containing this words.

    Yes you must reinstall UT after this, so better uninstall it before.

    But I'm not really sure of this is the problem as the registry should be updated when you reinstall. But it's worth a try and only takes a few minutes

    thanks but that didn't do it. tech support at UT had no
    clue. including reinstalling directx. last resort was
    to reinstall winme but I doubt that will do much because
    I have installed other programs (giants etc) that are
    running fine. any ideas about winini files? this is getting
    to be a headache
    thanks for your interest and help

    I was trying to switch from my V5500 to the Herc II Pro to improve gameplay on D3D games aside from UT. Nightmare is right. Couldn't get UT to work well at all. Choppy, FPS tanked, couldn't window UT without crashing, etc. Tried all the BIOS changes, downloaded the latest drivers, reinstalled UT, tweaked and tweaked.

    Nothing. The card is on its way back for a refund. The V5500 is still the sweetest card for UT. I'm running at 1600x1200x16 with an average frame rate of around 55 FPS. UT starts fast, windows fast. Everything is just better. When UT fades away (which who knows when that will be...), I suspect the 5500 will go too. Until then, its the V5500 all the way.
