Default UT3 Beta in 2 Weeks, Maybe 1 ...

Quote:
Folks,

Just wanted to give you a heads' up that we're getting pretty close to releasing the Unreal Tournament 3 Beta Demo for Windows. The Beta Demo will allow instant action play against bots as well as online multiplayer. The purpose of the Beta Demo is to test the game on a large variety of hardware configurations and get gameplay feedback from the community. The development team feels they're pretty close to being ready to release this so it could come out this week but for safety sake I'd say it should be out within two weeks.

We have a few fan sites in tomorrow to play the full game and I'm sure they'll be sharing their comments pretty soon afterward.

We won't be sharing any comments as we weren't invited ...

After all, this site is mainly for admins. Epic has never cared about peeps running server, thus the lack of server admin data put out by Epic.

well . they can't invite all.

They don't need us, they need people to buy their games, nothing more.

Once it's out we will take over and mutate it into something we like, and then, their gameplay is no more, hence their support will also be gone.

If i made a company and made a fortune on a game, then i would make another game when the first one stops sellings and don't look back ....

There are plenty of enthusiastic people who will be able and willing to support the old games, 8 years for UT99 is a long time for a game, way too long for us to expect anything from Epic.

Epic never supported the admins from the beginning. Case in point, look at that stupid runserver.bat that they included.

thats an arogant way to put it!

look at it this way:

They ask for the opinion of the community, we are a part of that community. Just because we weren't invitet doesn't mean we shouldn't give them our thoughts?

We might as well give them feedback while they are listening? how long time after the release can we expect support? we don't know ... so we best give them our feedback to begin with.

The people who use this site pretty much is the support for the Unreal series. This is where the knowledge is. Based on that, I dont understand why none of the admins here are invited to try new stuff etc.

UT3 forums are open now.
Only a beta sub-section at the moment so that all info can stay there.

That demo was locked, the "other one" was cracked.
Apparently the demo is now unlocked.

So, there's no a dedicated server in demo. No Linux executables... Good job Epic! Why in the hell we need a crippled demo of on-line FPS game with little support for on-line gaming itself?

Whenever the demo or beta for any game is released, some guy will show up and whine about no Linux executables, this and that is missing, no online support, no single player support, etc.

Before posting you could go and check history of previous UT releases and why nobody whined in the past.

We're admins... We're not supposed to be noticed, recognized or otherwise thanked. However, we will be emailed, contacted and bombarded when our users are having issues.
I admin my clan's UT2k4 server and I enjoy the encouragement and kudos for the work I do. They also appreciate that whenever they need anything done, I'm there.
I also do admin work for my company. Not once has anyone approached me and thanked me that emails are working and data is protected. I don't feel bad just unappreciated, yet I get paid and I guess that's all that matters.
