    Though I agree with just about everything sparky said, I found it ironic that he ripped Epic for the use of horizontal scan lines but his latest UT2004 wallpaper has the exact same thing turned 90 degrees. Horizontal scan lines are so five years ago yet, make them vertical, and they're cutting edge :p Just playin :D

    I thought the whole point of UWindows was that you could switch between windows easily, so you don't have to load the whole server list just to change a few settings for example. It looks nice, but it's not too functional now.

    I agree that it is a 100% improvement over UT2k3's interface, but being the weak, console-like interface it is, it's still only at about 7.43% of UWindows :(

    Personally I like the change of colours from UT2003, it was far too blue. It kinda fits the theme of the game a bit better IMHO. But yes, UWindows should be brought back. They damn well better of at least changed that retarded intro.

    I like the menu and loading screens. They're colourful, in your face and give you a hint on what you're in for once you press "Join Server". ;)

    I especially like the background in the "metal angel" loading screen.

    Do I load the game to stare at the menu, or actually play it...... hmm.... well, I myself actually play it, so who REALLY cares what the menu looks like?

    The UT menu was functional, sure, but it was really ugly. Especially at what's a normal resolution these days - horrible gradients are so 20th century ;)

    It was also quite slow. Even on my P4 3GHz/9800 Pro/1GB machine it takes ages for a window to initialize and all that. If they only incorporated the style and speed of the 2004 menus with the functionality of the first's...

    It's all good!!

    IMHO I feel the new GUI is a big step up from UT2K3 and should prove easy to use for NOOBS who are just starting out!
