nelsoncp21:

if I ever get this download I will be on hopefully! Man I wish I had FIOS. This must be a huge file.

If it makes you feel better I have FioS and all my downloads are just as slow. Depending on the server.

 

true thats a good point. could be the server.

edit: this blows. I just downloaded the v1.2 patch and it is still telling me there is an update needed to play online. I don't undestand why I can choose to join the next available server and play online but I can't join any servers that I choose. The UT3 website wasn't much help since none of the links worked on their site. can someone else check the UT3 website and see if they are having problems too or is it just me.

Hahah! Was too funny... Michael, my son, jumped on and I was amazed to see how well he did!

Nelson, you beat on me pretty good though!

I'll look at the bot difficulty level when I take it down for the eve.

Aww hopefully I can get my UT3 working, I'm downloading the patch right now.

I loved playing the first UT when it came out.

Hahah! Michael had a blast with you guys. He's 11 years old and plays mostly the Xbox 360 but I fire up the PC platform for him occasionally to keep his chops sharp. ;-) He was so excited he could be competitive with you guys. He thought he was going to get pwnd by you pros! LOL

wow, your definatley to kind Dave. I am not even close to the same category as a pro. matter of fact I haven't even had the game that long. Maybe played a couple dozen times and that is it. I am just glad I could somewhat hang with you guys. I guess having bots to kill helps my odds a little though.

Who won this one I could never get it to work for some reason (the download) so I never got in. The server must have been set really low for acceptable up bandwidth.

 Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600) 
 System Model: Gigabyte X58A-UD5
 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU         930  @ 2.80GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.6GHz
