    Hmm, something happened with my replay...

    Thx a lot for Blossom! Game looks way better now. What they were thinking to make UT3 so GoW like.

    Still don't know what to do with Sweet FX files

    No worries. I suppose it's possible that I have missed something, but let me outline a couple of things that might affect your setup.

    First, I use the -nohomedir argument with my UT3.exe. This means that there is no folder created in "My Documents" which then means that the UTEngine.ini file would go into your "UTGame" -> "Config" folder. If you don't use the -nohomedir argument, then the file will have to be copied to your documents folder, in "My Games" -> Unreal Tournament 3" (I believe). The same with the UTBlossomMut.ini file.

    The UTEngine.ini is set up for 2560x1440 @ 96Hz as well; this will need to be changed perhaps. The resolution can be set in the [SystemSettings] area and the refresh rate can be set in two areas; [Engine.Client] and [Engine.GameEngine] though with vsync set to 'false', this might not matter.

    The Blossom mutator is the main file to manage the bloom and color of the image. For sharpness, the details would be in the UTEngine.ini where I have heavily tweaked the shadow resolution, depth cutoff and filtering as well as sharpness and clarity.

    Hope this helps. If you still have issues, I will check into it further when I get home (in the office now).

    EDIT: Here is the Blossom mutator; it will show you exactly where things should go (if that was the issue). Aside from this, the files you have should do the trick.

    [MENTION=7532]Carbon[/MENTION], sorry for my ignorance but how should your files be used? I've tried to manually copy them to the proper locations but didn't work. Do I need Blossom mod first? I couldn't find it anywhere.

    After hundreds of years I've installed all UTs and UT3 really looks washed out.

    Thought I would add the images below as they are relevant to the discussion.

    Top images show the game at default settings (but with a crazy FOV in the first shot) with DOF, bloom and overall the colors are somewhat muted. Below them are shots from my tweaked install. Config files are here.

    I really appreciate the support and the PM's from the moderator's. Thank you Epic/ Flak/ _Lynx

    You can trust that the files are 100% legitimate, they are just the patches and fixes needed to play UT3 and i don't support piracy. I will see what the outcome of this is and if anyone has trouble accessing the files then you can PM me.

    Great post TKBS. I have seen this guide before on your site I guess..?

    Anyhow, for anyone who is into eye candy, I have spent way too much time tweaking UT3 game files. I have put the Blossom mutator, SweetFX files and my UTEngine.ini together. I thought I would post them here but they won't be of much use for competition; just for looks! Set for 24xAA and 16xAF; these values may need to be changed depending on your system.

    • updated the UT3 Ultimate Installation Guide.
    • It Includes a 2.85GB pack containing the updated Guide, all important updates/ patches.

    Download Link:

    • Ignore links provided by Epic for Patch 5, it is pointless without the other patches, i have included all required files
    • @ All use my link instead.... I'd love to be a supporter with a tag, i think i support UT3 more than Epic do :0.
    • I will host only as long as i have space.

    Small note:
    • if people would like the Missing PhysX development Kit contents i have faked the unpublished packages/ missing references
    • downloads available on request only


    Big thanks to the 50+ Downloaders who haven't spotted the 3 typo's in the guide or provided feedback. I assume the guide is air-tight
    If users have issues it's ok to send me a request

    ... Or you can create a new steam account or use your steam account and activate the UT3 Key with Steam, since you can add it to steam
