UT Tweak Guide
10:46 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Our CGA partner Stomped pointed out that 3D Spotlight has updated their excellent Unreal Tournament Tweak Guide for Epic's fantastic shooter. While this game has been out for some time, we thought we'd mention the guide for those of you who are 'rediscovering' this game due to the many excellent 'mods' that have recently been released.

While the guide features simple tips such as reducing the World Texture setting to gain speed and instructions on how to turn off the 'City Intro' to improve launching speed, there are also detailed guides to all of the settings and their effects. This includes instructions on how to tweak all of the settings under the Advanced options dialog, an intimidating interface even for veteran users. Each setting and its effect on gameplay performance is explained in detail, and almost all of them are relevant to the Mac as well as PC versions.

The good news is, this guide isn't just for UT -- many of the tips and tricks mentioned within will also be quite handy for games based on the UT engine, such as Deus Ex and the upcoming titles Rune and Deep Space Nine: The Fallen. If you've got an UT-based game that isn't running as smoothly as you would like, be sure and explore this guide to find out what might be slowing you down.
