Unreal Tournament X Preview 4 Priorities
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Glenda Adams, president of Westlake Interactive, recently posted to the comp.sys.mac.games.action newsgroup with word on the fourth Unreal Tournament preview for Mac OS X. Her post tallies requests for fixes to Unreal Tournament X. Here's the full scoop:

Since I got a good amount of feedback on people's preferences for fixes in UT X, I've tabulated all the results and here are the winners:

(rank) (fix) (points)
#1 Speed - 67
#2 Mouse Tweaks - 64
#3 Windowed Mode - 45
#4 Graphical glitches - 38
#5 Sound fixes - 36
#6 Dedicated Server - 31
#7 Music - 27
#8 Mouse Buttons (5 or more) - 20
#9 Mods - 17
#10 General Stability -9
#11 Native OS X Installer - 4
#12 Carbon umod installer - 4
#13 Alternate OS X .ini files - 3
#14 ngWorld stats - 2

(points were added up from all responses, a first place vote got 5 points, 2nd place 4 points, etc, down until 5th place got 1 point. All the totals were then added up. Yes I spent too much time on this :) )

It looks like speed optimizations, mouse control tweaks, and windowed mode were the big winners. I'll prioritize more towards those in P4. That isn't to say some of the easier fixes, like 5 button mice, won't get in sooner than later. And I still don't know when I'll actually get to do some more work on UT X, I'm just starting up a huge project right now that is really taking up my time.

We'll keep you posted on the status of Unreal Tournament X as it progresses towards the fourth preview release.
