Unreal Tournament 2003 IRC Transcript Available
6:34 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
The results of an IRC chat with Mark Rein of Epic have recently been posted online at FasterFiles. The topic, naturally, was Unreal Tournament 2003. While the transcript is rather lengthy and disorganized, there are slivers of information here and there that should be of interest to gamers anticipating this title.
One guest inquires as to the graphic tweaking of UT2003 compared to Quake 3 in terms of control. Rein replies that the graphics can't be "dumbed down" very much. Texture details and shadows can be modified, for example, but things like render modes can't be modified.
An oft-asked question concerns the PC demo, which Rein confirms should be out in about 2 weeks or so. As far as plans for a Mac version of UT, when asked, Rein replies that there are "no plans for Mac yet."
Rein also makes some comments about the improved bot AI, noting that bots will use the translocator more effectively when travelling across a map.
The rest of the transcript covers miscellaneous information, such as performance with particular graphics cards, weapons details, and game modes. Readers are warned that the chat contains a lot of profanity and immature statements, and is definitely not G-rated. Those who wish to peruse the whole read can find it at FasterFiles.
