    I will try to refrain from fanboy rants. I fear i have already failed. Forgive me.

    Awesome post!

    I am super excited to be a part of the UT world again.

    I own every game on every platform released.

    I am also replaying all of them to make myself more useful around here from a technical standpoint.

    Head over to the Art Development forums. We'll be using those forums to organize those contributions - we haven't quite got to the point yet of needing contributions, but getting more familiar with the tools and doing some experimentation might be useful. Thanks!

    Very nice post Steve! I have in fact all 3 UT versions and it really works to play UT2k4 for an hour, then immediately start playing UT99 afterwards. You'll notice so much difference especially in speed and control. For me (personal opinion) it feels like UT99 has a lot more direct control, less fire lag and more direct input than 2k4 which really works for the amazing UT gameplay. For me, this is the most important thing to have in the new UT.

Direct3d9 dll works a bit better, but weapons like minigun is missing the fire effect. And still it feels like there is mouse lag, its definitely not as sharp smooth input as i remember. Any chance that epic would spend but a little time to try and shine the mouse control up for UT99.
    try this thread. you will probably only get the best gameplay experience from playing in a server with ACE installed, which makes UT99 compatible with newer hardware. also install markc mouse fix which will remove mouse acceleration

    I don't remember Epic saying that, but regardless the two games are not the same. Most notably the 2k3 dodging mechanics were toned down in 2k4 due to complaint's about it feeling too "floaty". Boost dodge, another interesting movement mechanic which was particularly a boon in a popular type of Bombing Run configuration was also left out (it's in webadmin as a classic setting, however it's broken). UT2003's floatiness was actually something that made Bombing Run so great along with low gravity and high speed and it did not feel properly replicated in 2k4 (missing things such as being unable to telepunt and self catch mechanic being broken as well).

    Even the famous infinite duly quoted an alpha of UT2004 noting the missing boost dodge: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qqhymv_6piI

    I am wondering if it would help to have a formal-monitored polling/voting mechanism, along with a development roadmap, for each Unreal Tournament Design option, much like what is done for the UnrealEngine 4 Development Roadmap. I think it would help clarify what the design options being considered are and how various contributors feel about them in a concise manner. Perhaps the same Trello based format as the engine roadmap could be used. The design discussions are very helpful, but it would nice to see more precisely where the development decisions are headed, and their timeframe, as they happen.

    But but!. i dont wanna play UT3! please make the bad man stop.

    Ahh just kidding. Sounds like good advice.
    Should even have some official servers here on the website for people here to play against each other. Anyone up for running some servers ?.

    Also how on earth do you get UT99 to run properly. It runs really badly, well oddly. new Opengl render dll. insane stuttering ingame. Direct3d9 dll works a bit better, but weapons like minigun is missing the fire effect. And still it feels like there is mouse lag, its definitely not as sharp smooth input as i remember.

    If at all possible, everyone please condense your replies to the briefest form possible to avoid parsing walls of text. it makes reading all your precious opinions very tedious in the long run.

    Perfection is achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

    strive for it pls! PLS!

    Thank you Steve, this is much needed.

    Steve, I really hope you guys will make some heavyhanded decisions on things like the core gameplay
