    ======================================================================================================

    This [non-profit] document, which is neither affiliated with Epic Games, nor supported by them, is a guide only. It aims to be as accurate as possible, to help UT3 gamers/ Developers get the most out of UT3. Due to regional variances, the gathering & processing of information and other factors, some information may be inaccurate/ outdated.
    Use at your own risk. Anyone, whether directly or indirectly, involved in this document should be excluded from the accountability or responsibility of any issues caused to your game &/or equipment from using this guide.

    • ...“Patch 4”, followed by the “Bonus Pack”, then “The Titan Pack” and then “Patch 5”, finally the Gamespy patch.
    • The NEW GameSpy Patch is required to play Online
    • UT3 is a *32 bit program, as such, it has limitations that cannot be overcome.

    ​======================================================================================================
    Additional Files


    These are files that are a part of UT3 in their own right. These include both official and unofficial patches/fixes, mods & maps. UT3 should not be without these and online gameplay will often require such files.
    • Create the folder setup, in your[DIR]2 “My Documents”… if you have not already got it.
    • \Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Published\CookedPC\CustomMaps
    • \Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Published\CookedPC\CustomWeapons

    Note: The community Bonus Maps will contain something for everyone, a collection of maps from each gametype.

    Note: for improved demo recording functions

    • UT Assault

    Note:
    • o This gametype was ported to UT3 by the community
    • o After installing Assault, Run the game once to generate the UTAssault.Ini & Change the 2 lines to look like this;



    [AssaultGame UTUIDataProvider_GameModeInfo]
    FriendlyName=Assault
    Description=Assault
    ​======================================================================================================

    Complete Conversions
    These are games made using the unreal engine that can be installed and enjoyed alongside UT3.

    ​======================================================================================================

    Configuration changes
    Configuration changes are recommended to get the most of UT3. Many tutorials exist online so I have simplified the process.

    UT3 Install File Directory [Dir]2 :
    • Backup the original config files then change them to look like this guide

    Note:
    • Please change settings according to personal preference
    • if you mess things up or delete the file. UT3 should create a new one on start-up, if one is not present.



    UTEngine

    UT3 With PhysX
    • If you want to play UT3 with PhysX enabled then a few instances of this:

    bDisablePhysXHardwareSupport=False
    • can be changed to true.
    • This will effect performance



    [Engine.Engine]
    • bAllowMatureLanguage=True
    • AllowShadowVolumes=True (Devs Only)
    • bEnableVSMShadows=True (Devs Only)
    • DefaultFogVolumeMaterialName=EngineMaterials.FogVolumeMaterial (Devs Only)

    Developers can play with this and custom packages, but it may crash


    [Engine.ISVHacks] (Important)
    These changes will avoid system crashing
    • bInitializeShadersOnDemand=True
    • DisableATITextureFilterOptimizationChecks=True
    • UseMinimalNVIDIADriverShaderOptimization=False
    • PumpWindowMessagesWhenRenderThreadStalled=True [Fixes Game crash]



    [Engine.GameEngine]
    • bSmoothFrameRate=False [Set to true for Demo recordings]
    • MinSmoothedFrameRate=22.000000
    • MaxSmoothedFrameRate=75.000000 [Set to something your monitor can handle]
    • bAllowMatureLanguage=True
    • bDisablePhysXHardwareSupport=False



    [Engine.DemoRecDriver]
    • AllowDownloads=True
    • DemoSpectatorClass=UTGame.DemoRecSpectator
    • NetServerMaxTickRate=65 [improves demo recording results, can go higher]
    • LanServerMaxTickRate=65



    [Engine.AudioDevice]
    • SoundGroups=(GroupName=UI,Properties=(Volume=0,bNoReverb=TRUE,bIsUISound=TRUE))
    • This will remove nasty UI sounds from the Unreal Menu's



    [Core.System]
    • MaxStaleCacheSize=100 [Increase to store more temporary files]
    • MaxOverallCacheSize=500 [Increase to store more temporary files]

    [WinDrv.WindowsClient]
    • AudioDeviceClass=ALAudio.ALAudioDevice
    • MinAllowableResolutionX=0
    • MinAllowableResolutionY=0 [can cap or hold a Resolution]
    • MaxAllowableResolutionX=0
    • MaxAllowableResolutionY=0
    • MinAllowableRefreshRate=0
    • MaxAllowableRefreshRate=0
    • AllowJoystickInput=0



    [ALAudio.ALAudioDevice]
    • MaxChannels=32
    • DeviceName=Generic Software

    Note: By removing “Generic Software” your 5.1 sound should be picked up
    [IpDrv.TcpNetDriver]
    • NetServerMaxTickRate=65 [better for net play]
    • LanServerMaxTickRate=65 [better for LAN play]



    [Editor.EditorEngine] [For devs/mappers only]
    • +EditPackages=Tornado
    • +EditPackages=PhysHR
    • +EditPackages=PhysX

    Not recommended but it can force loading of packages


    [FullScreenMovie]
    • ;StartupMovies=EpicLogo
    • ;StartupMovies=MidwayLogo
    • ;StartupMovies=UE3_logo
    • ;StartupMovies=Nvidia_PC
    • ;StartupMovies=Intel_Duo_Logo

    Note:
    [Adding “;” at the start, skips the movies]
    [OnlineSubsystemGameSpy.OnlineSubsystemGameSpy]
    • StunServerAddress=stunserver.org
    • StunServerAddress=stun.xten.com

    Note:
    can be changed for running a server but not in the Engine
    (see server install guide)


    UTGame
    [UTOnslaughtNodeTeleporter]
    • bRealtimeCapture=True

    Note:
    • Warfare Teleporter portal rendering updates are disabled by default, (for performance reasons). As of patch 4. Enable this to see Real Time teleporters
    • This is highly beneficial as you can see the other side where the portal takes you, helps prevent being impact hammered through a portal.



    [Engine.WorldInfo]
    Change:
    • DecalManagerClassPath=whatever it is

    To:
    • DecalManagerClassPath=RCam317.RCamDecalManager

    Note:
    Only do this if you installed the required RypelCam Files


    UTInput [key Bindings]
    [Engine.PlayerInput]
    • Bindings=(Name="X",Command="Y")
      Note: where X is the key you wish to use and Y is the command.

    Note: add these 2 lines to the end of you KeyBindings, be careful to avoid conflicts.
    • Bindings=(Name="X",Command="ThrowWeapon | teamsay Weapon Dropped")
    • Note:

    o Adding the break and comment seems to fix the drop impact hammer bug, you still cannot throw it, but the game does not crash
    • Bindings=(Name="z",Command="DropFlag")

    Note:

    • This will also drop orb in warfare
    • Other key binding examples
    • Bindings=(Name="Z",Command="ThrowWeapon")
    • Bindings=(Name="X",Command="GBA_SwitchWeapon1")

    ​Note:
    If you write your own code you can Execute custom functions here aswel:
    • Bindings=(Name="X",Command="ToggleFlashLight")


    Note:

    • where 1 can be any number 0-9 representing each weapon respectively.
    • You can combine multiple commands as explained above.


    • Bindings=(Name=" nine ",Command=" GBA_SwitchWeapon9 | FOV 80 | setsensitivity 7.5")

    Note:
    Will change to sniper, zoom my FOV and set my sensitivity to 750.
    • Bindings=(Name="X",Command="GBA_SwitchWeapon1")



    UTMapLists
    • Example: Occasionally the BadMaps error may occur within you map list config.



    [VCTFMapList UTMapList]
    • Maps=(Map="VCTF-MineCraft",ExtraData=)
    • BadMaps=(Map="VCTF-MineCraft",ExtraData=)
    • BadMaps=(Map="VCTF-MineCraft",ExtraData=)

    Note:
    • You can remove the bad maps or simply delete the whole “.ini”, restart UT3 and add back what you need



    [MAPLIST.INI]
    add these lines to Unlock “VCTF-Containment_SP”, a map normally only available in Campaign Mode
    • Maps=(Map="VCTF-Containment_SP")



    [vCTF-Containment_SP UTUIDataProvider_MapInfo]
    MapName=vCTF-Containment_SP
    PreviewImageMarkup=<Images:UI_FrontEnd_Art.MapPics.Map-Pic-vCTF-Containment>
    Description=<Strings:UTGAMEUI.CampaignBriefing.BriefDesc52>
    FriendlyName=<Strings:UTGameUI.FriendlyMapNames.Containment>


    UT3 WEBADMIN
    Note: For server admin
    • I removed this:

    [WebAdmin.BasicWebAdminAuth]
    • RequireUsername=Admin

    Demo recordings
    • Improve demo recordings and server games with RypelCam

    Note: Download RypelCam for improved demo recording features.


    [UTGame.ini]
    • DecalManagerClassPath=UTGame.UTDecalManager

    Change to:
    • DecalManagerClassPath= RCam317.RCamDecalManager

    [UTEngine.ini]
    • DefaultPostProcessName=FX_HitEffects.UTPostProcess

    To:
    • DefaultPostProcessName = EngineMaterials.DefaultScenePostProcess

    Note:
    This gets rid of the red impact & damage effects displayed around the screen.
    • Open My Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Config\UTGame.ini



    [UTGame.UTHUD]
    • bShowDamage=false

    Hot Start/ Quick Start commands
    These can be added at the end of Shortcut files
    • -nomoviestartup
    • -novsync

    System Settings
    • you can adjust for personal preference
    • Most you can change in game, some you cannot, I have only included some



    [SystemSettings]
    Bloom=False
    LensFlares=False
    FogVolumes=False
    OneFrameThreadLag=False
    UseVsync=False
    Fullscreen=True

    MaxAnisotropy=32
    MinShadowResolution=32

    Note:
    • This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "UTCustomChar.ini" file in the "/My Games/Unreal Tournament 3/UTGame/Config/" directory. Add the following line at the end of the section with the
    • Parts=(Part=PART_Head, entry:

    Parts=(Part=PART_Head,ObjectName="CH_Corrupt_Male.Mesh.SK_CH_Corrupt_Male_Head05",PartID="E",FamilyID="LIAM")

He iscompetent, but volitile.",CharID="F",bLocked="false",Faction="Ironguard",PreviewImageMarkup="<Images:UI_Portrait.Character.UI_Portrait_C

    Installing custom characters:
    • For this example I will install the nail war cow:

    Custom Win32 Updates

    Note: These are the only ones I recommend trying (they work well without issues)
    • PhysX.dll this file can be found in Other Unreal Engine Games
    • OpenAl.dll Provides up-to-date 5.1 audio support. This was not present in the UT3 file and required a Config change that didn’t really have much of an effect. Update the OpenAL.dll to fix this.

    WARNING:
    • Doing this may create a huge log every time the game is run and is NOT recommended unless you want to build on it and make it work properly, or only use it for a minimal amount of time and delete you log afterwards
    • Some posts are available online about this sort of thing but this is the only documented attempt known to myself.
    • The following files can be swapped to updated versions
    • Bink.dll

    Nice. One thing you should have also mentioned is MapMixer, which completely revamps the menu.

    Also would be interesting to note how to install the game on Wine. I tried it several times, it installs, but upon running it just crashes for me...

      I've installed UT3 but am having MAJOR issues. Here's a post that I created here so you can read all of the issues that I'm having with UT3 AND UT2004 not being able to launch at all.

      https://forums.epicgames.com/threads...-1-Please-Help

      Very disappointed that I can't have either game work and have NO CLUE where to turn as nothing is working. Any input from anyone here would be greatly appreciated!!!

        ... 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

          This thread should be a sticky or something...

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


            Download Link:http://www.mediafire.com/download/yo...Update_Kit.rar

            P.s
            • 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

             
            Spoiler

            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

                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.

                  Regarding this thread and link:

                  Use of a file in your account has been suspended
                  Dear MediaFire User:
                  MediaFire has received notification under the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") that your usage of a file is allegedly infringing on the file creator's copyright protection. The file named UT3 Update Kit.rar is identified by the key (yopo52a720wqazf). As a result of this notice, pursuant to Section 512(c)(1)(C) of the DMCA, we have suspended access to the file.


                  The reason for suspension was:


                  Entertainment Software Association

                  Dear mediafire.com:


                  The Entertainment Software Association ("ESA") is a U.S. trade association that represents the intellectual property interests of companies that publish interactive games for video game consoles, personal computers, handheld devices and the Internet (hereinafter collectively referred to as "ESA members"). A list of ESA members can be found at
                  http://www.theesa.com/about/members.asp. Under penalty of perjury, we affirm that ESA is authorized to act on behalf of ESA members whose exclusive copyright rights we believe to have been infringed as described herein.


                  ESA is providing this notice to request that you immediately take action with respect to infringements that are occurring at the addresses identified on the attached list.


                  The material located on and/or being distributed from the URLs listed on the attached is infringing the copyright rights of one or more ESA members by copying and distributing unauthorized copies of game products, in violation of applicable copyright laws. The copyrighted works that have been infringed (hereinafter referred to as "Infringing Material") are identified on the attached list by their titles or variations thereof.


                  Because infringement of ESA member copyrighted works by and through your website appears to be significant and widespread, the attached list of titles is a "representative list" identifying a sample of the works infringed. The attached list is not by any means exhaustive of the ESA member works infringed by and through your website. As the law makes clear, a copyright claimant need not identify every infringing work on a site, but rather only a representative list of such works at that site. Having been so informed of the nature and scope of infringement being claimed, the site operator must act to address all infringement on that website, not merely the identified representative examples.


                  Given the infringing activity, the ESA urges you to cooperate with its efforts to protect the intellectual property rights of its members companies and immediately do the following:


                  Immediately take steps to remove or disable access to all of the Infringing Material.
                  Notify any user who may have participated in reproducing or distributing the Infringing Material that their conduct was illegal and could be subject to enforcement.
                  Avoid the same Infringing Material being reposted by the same or other users.
                  Take appropriate action against any responsible user, including termination of repeat offenders.


                  ESA has a good faith belief that the use of the Infringing Material in the manner described herein is not authorized by the copyright owners, their agents, or the law. The information in this notification is accurate. Under penalty of perjury, we hereby affirm that ESA is authorized to act on behalf of ESA members whose exclusive copyright rights we believe to have been infringed as described herein. By providing this notice, neither ESA nor its members are waiving any claims or remedies, or their right to engage in other enforcement activities, and all claims, rights and remedies are expressly reserved.


                  You or the account holders that posted any of the files at the URLs described above may contact ESA at the above-listed contact details, with email preferred. Please include the above-noted Reference Number in the subject line of all email correspondence.


                  Thank you for your cooperation and prompt response in this matter.


                  Sincerely,


                  Intellectual Property Enforcement
                  Entertainment Software Association

                        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.

                              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.
