    I recently downloaded version 432...
    It forces me to use D3D. I'm alright with this, OpenGL and D3D have always been somewhere near the bottom of the hierarchy of rendering devices.
    This, however, I can not deal with.

    huh?!!!

    it didn't allow you to use Glide? odd.

    my friend, who uses a Voodoo 3 was able to use Glide for 3D support.
    have you tried reinstalling the patch?

    D3D sucks?

    I am currently using Version 428 (I had 432 but I didn't like the way it was acting) with D3D. I have a GeForce 256, P-III 667, 128Megs of Ram. I get an average of about 49 Fps currently. UT told me that this was the best config to use (D3D) but now I read that D3D is at the bottom of the barrel. What should I use? Which is the best? What kind of differences are we talking about here? Faster FPS? I find D3d is good, smooth with decent FPS. Should I change it? I had tried once to use another however my FPS went to hell (10-12 fps etc) so I went with D3D.

    Any ideas? Thoughts? Comments?

    RaginRaven, if it's smooth with good detail, use it. You can't go wrong. :)

    I noticed a good improvement in D3D with 432. I have a Geforce2, Thunderbird 700@742, 96 MB RAM, Win98 1st edition.

    Probably

    Glide is probably the best for Voodoo cardss.
    D3D is probably the best for non-Voodoo cards with 128 MB of ram or less.
    OpenGL is better if you have a lot of ram and a non-voodoo card.

    My GeForce MX, 700 mhz athlon, and 128 MB of ram gets avg of 37-40 FPS with D3D online at 800x600x32 med/med, OGL gets 45-50 FPS online at 1072x784x32 high/high, but takes a LONG time to get started, and is extremely choppy in the beginning of the game. In one game on Peak, I started 6 frags down in a large DM simply because it takes so long for OpenGL get started... all the disk swapping is really slow.

    I wish I had some more damn ram.... still, the OGL is so pretty I take the initial time loss.

    OK go into your UT.ini and find the following:

    [XDrv.XClient]

    ScreenFlashes=True

    Set that to FALSE. That might help.
