Well, let's start at Wiki.
Wikipedia wrote:
Unreal Tournament III (UT3) is a first-person shooter video game and the next installment of the Unreal series after Unreal Tournament 2004. It is being developed by Epic Games, to be published by Midway Games in November 2007 for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, and sometime during 2008 for the Xbox 360. The PlayStation 3 version is likely to be released early in 2008, although the developers are still aiming for a release towards the end of 2007.

Unreal Tournament 3 is actually the fourth game in the Unreal Tournament series, but has been numbered in terms of the engine it runs on. The original Unreal Tournament uses the original Unreal Engine, while UT2003 and UT2004 use the Unreal Engine 2; therefore they are considered as the same generation. UT3 is subsequently part of the third generation, due to the fact that it runs on the Unreal Engine 3. On October 12, 2007, a beta demo was made available for download. This came hours after the beta demo leaked to the public.

You can grab the 'beta' demo here from fileplanet.

From there, create a login name, go under settings and adjust the settings to the game appropriate to your hardware. For me anyways, the demo started off with the resolution at 800x600 for example. Adjust these, play a quick round with bots to see how the game runs and to wipe off initial drool from your keyboard. The engine runs extremely smooth though so you will probably be able to bump up the graphics rather than tone them down.

To add us to your friends list and join, go under community, and type in either my name ("Lucky_Cynic") or "bloodyroarxx"'s screen name and send us friend invites. When we can, we will accept and send you back our own friend invites and then from there you can click our names from the friends list, and do Follow Player to join our current games.

This is still just a demo. Some things you will notice is that there are only 3 maps as of now. 2 of them are arena like and the final is a bridge Vehicle CTF map. Also; everyone plays as the same character and there is no option to customize them in the demo at all. There are bots though of different difficulties which are good for practicing on. You also see the Campaign option up top but none of it is included in this demo unfortunately.




So the other thread is making it hard to organize games and whatnot for the people who do like the game so this will be a thread for organizing and commenting on games played not the game as a whole.

So I will host a 12 player server when I can which should be likely for an hour or so every night.

Post your game account name and I'll add it to this list then add these names to your in game list in the community section.

    I am Darmak, I'll try and get on occasionally and play with you guys when I get opportunities. Though while I think this game is amazing, so far trying to play online hasn't been. Laggy as fuck but hopefully with Bloody hosting though it should be better. :)

    Oh yeah man, the other servers are just pounded, but Bloody's is very well set up. I don't know the specifics but it is real smooth without or with low lag.
