    Have they put the no-taunts option from the previous UT's back in?

    It's not exactly the same. They removed a few pages entirely (like the Press Any Key screen).

    I love the color scheme!!!!! Nice video options. Hopefully we get a superb custom xhair and bot options as well.

    Yeah, the color is a lot better. The texture itself is kinda boring though, kinda looks like a glitched shader.

    If the functionality/navigation is improved with a boat load more options then all is good I guess.
    Colour schemes and graphical looks are subjective but for the record I think it looks badass myself.

    It would be great if these trigger issues could be resolved.

    I really like adding doors and other things because they can really add an extra dynamic to gameplay, and I like to try unique things. (and who doesn't like secret doors?)

    There's other issues with bots, physics volumes, etc.. but I won't go there..

    Just shrink it a bit and make the tiles look a tad fibrous.

    I'm loving the new colour scheme - and carbon fibre goes well there.

    I like the fact they used a carbon filter to style up the menus and the editor loading BMP. But it looks a bit 8-bit like and huge. I suppose it's a matter of preferences?

    Have to say that I really like the colours of the new menu. From here it looks much more clean.

    I know you can change (or remove, at least) the background level, but is it possible to get rid of reaper in the background there?

    Why would you want to do that? it looks way better than the blood splatter did.

    Its is, trust me, ive been testing since this one appears in the scene for more than a week tho, and so far i saw mayor improvements not only in the menu and options, more easy to get what you want and do in the game.

    For an example, the weapon damage has increased in the enforcers, the beam of the link gun (in the past toke me forever to kill someone with the beam of this weapon, i was considering the ammo was very weak because of that, but, with the patch LOOK OUT is extremely dangerous with the 2 buttons pushed on the mouse to increase the fire rate damage!!!) , the flak cannon shots are more accurate and deadly even if u have the shield, close shots are a huge wave of blood in your screen, the shock rifle secondary shot (the energy sphere) is a bit quicker than before, and so on.

    I m really happy that the huge pack is coming ! see u online!;)

    Of course we are.
    Did anyone expect anything else ?

    One does have to wonder why no one chose to equate the new 'black' menu with the (supposed) death of the UT-series ;)

    // ---

    Has Epic explained what all the 'new' graphics-options are supposed to do?
    And is there a live-preview or are we supposed to guess ?

    That's it ? No live preview ? No feedback ? Just tweaking a magic number and praying to a machinegod that it actually does anything ?

    As opposed to just about any other Unreal game that - wait for it - DID EXACTLY THE SAME?
