    Hello All,

    I justed started playing UT yesterday and I'm wondering what most people use for their settings (ie do you use the mouse, button configs, check boxes) Also how do I flip? I see other characters flipping, but have no clue. Thanks for the help!

    Flipping -> that's dodging.

    How to perform a dodge?
    Easy:

    First, when you're in the game, on the dekstop (with the menubar on top of the screen)
    go to options -> preferences -> Game.
    Make sure "dodging" is checked.

    Now all you need to do in a match (be it dm/teamdm/as/ctf etc) is use the movement keys and double tap them fast. forward-forward -> forward dodge.

    Most people use a mouse I guess.

    And welcome to the ut world :D

    dodge isnt flipping. to flip you just double jump (jump-jump->double jump). It works with female characters and Harlequin etc.

    The flip is merely a charcter animation used for double jumping.

    I was under the impression he was talking about UT, you know.. UT?
    I mean, when you dodge forwards it can be considered flipping?

    ...
    Nah, I'm starting to flip out cause there are too many people who can't tell the obvious difference between ut and ut2k3/4 anymore :con:..
    sigh.

    If someone says UT, then they're talking about UT. That's how I understand it.
    If they meant saying UT2K4, then they should type UT2K4.
    Easy ain't it :B

    how can dodging be concidered flipping? :p

    And you might understand it wrong. People say UT as in meaning UT200whatever.
    I Always moan at people saying UT99 or UT1 - that kinda thing annoys me.

    Yeah well it's beyond me (sometimes) why people say ut when they mean ut2k3/4..
    It's just common sense you'd use the correct abbreviation bleh 0_0...

    ... the funny thing is people saying UT2k3 or UT2k4 just to save 1 (one!) caracter. Is it that hard to say or type UT2003 or UT2004? I mean...

    ... and yes UT is the first. If you go talking about Quake games or Half-Life, it's the same thing. 1 is not the same as 2. Fail to acknoledge (<something wrong there) that... and you problaly are an Instagibber... a drunk one ;p ...

    Back to topic though, as NeoNite mentioned, the flipping is merely a 'cosmetic' thing each time someone "dodge forward". You see it 3rd person, not 1rst. This is UT behaviour...

    Btw, try the "flipmode" mutator for UT.

    You can find it here:

    http://www.planetunreal.com/modsquad/

    Check the mutators section.

    Modquad on beyondunreal doesn't have the mutator.

    Eh, it's just a little extra I guess.
