Anyone got a fast mirror link (100 kbps or faster)

\o/ woo


They don't mention that it's available on the Blueyonder ftp too :)

Look in the UT2004 rather than the demo directory

Not *that* impressed tbh

The guns don't feel like they have enough punch, and there's a delay on the shock rifle and lightning gun (sniper), which ruins them.

With the gameplay being so fast paced, it's a bitch to hit anything anyway, the delay just goes over the top.

Will give it a closer look tommorow tho

Me likes a lot. Grid mode anyway, havent tried the rest. Kinda like a small scale Planetside without the tedium and far far far more carnage.

3dgamers.com has a bittorrent running.

http://www.3dgamers.com/dl/games/unrealtourn2k4/ut2004-betademo.exe.html

For info on how to use this, check http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/ and 3dgamers own bittorrent help, http://www.3dgamers.com/about/dl_torrent.html
Bittorrent is a good p2p app that (almost) GUARANTEES you a decent download speed, as long as other people are online sharing the file. There is also no chance of you downloading a mislabeled or corrupt file using this.

Remember, don't throttle that upload!

LOVE IT. Great use of vehicles ... this will make for some great teamplay opportunities.
Quake is dead, etc.

Unless you're me and any upload over 10 k/sec kills you Cable connection. Bloody NTL!!!

Strange, when I was on NTL I could fill upstream and downstream as per spec no problem (15KB/s up 60+KB/s down). DSL is crap along those lines though, upload at even 50% (15 out of 30KB/s) and I'm lucky to get 20KB/s download...

I like the attack / defend mission but from my 5 mins of playing it should be an addon pack ;)

I'll give it a miss, I still say its a Tribes 2 wanna be :p

Had some fun this morning. I liked the hover bike and the flying copter thing but I only had 10 mins to play before going to work.

I'll give it a thorough test tonight.

I cant see it as an add on as the company looks set to run this as a yearly series.

This is a good torrent for it, I got 120kps out of it anyway which is as fast as my modem will go!

Just have to wait till I get home from work to try it :(

Hm downloadin it now, considering i aint played this type of fast-paced action since Quake3, a few years ago, should be a blast...

Only worth it for novelty value in my opinion. There are other games that use vehicles better, the rest is identical to UT2003.
