So far Ive played three games and with random people THEY SUCK. They can hardly stay alive and do not know what they are doing. I was in a game where the techie did not hack a station and just stood fighting. Or a medic who did not drop heal packs. It was all ways me and Corpse outlaw*from GB* Who where the last two standing. And two can not fight an alien horde.

Since my download appears to be taking forever I just wanna know something. Is friendly fire still always enabled and if so do noobs still foolishly pick the shotgun which only leads to bad things? :p

You're playing a game that has just been released on  steam, surely people who have never played the mod before are picking it up and trying things out, therefore you will be stuck with nubs.
 
Game shall finish downloading in about 10 minutes, never played it before but i'm no scrub so I should be okay :P

the games only bit out, only a few hours?  don't think many have played the original UT mod.  So it's safe to say there's gonna be people who jump in and don't know what they are doing.

I play with friends and my friends doesn't suck at gaming ;)

I can't get into a game at all, I see a full server list but I can't connect to anything

#15 Edited by wolf_blitzer85 (5287 posts) -

I just beat the campaign with three random dudes. 
 
Shit gets super intense. Make sure someone is a medic. Especially in later levels. 

#16 Posted by Paulus (176 posts) -

Seems like they've taken out the little stat progression thing from the mod... :( bummer, since that really pushed you to do better than your teammates. Just played a few games and it seems like they've turned down the shotgun friendly damage :p, if they didn't I would've died on several occasions due to friendly fire. :')

#17 Edited by JeevesPleez (332 posts) -

Download's almost finished! I haven't played the original mod, and I have no idea what I'm doing, but I learn quick.

#21 Posted by Rehehelly (414 posts) -

Played it for about an hour til I messed with a video setting (causing game to freeze) and I timed out :(
 
Was really excited about finishing the campaign with those guys too as they were cool, they didn't die.

It could be the multicore of your cpu if you have it. Mine stutters on the engine (L4D, L4D2, and now this). There's a console command to disable multicore stuff and that helps a lot if you have stuttering issues (possibly the freezing you're talking about).

It is a nice looking game.

@The_Laughing_Man:
It's a damn short game though. On normal we brushed through in like an hour.

EDIT: And my Steam NAME is NoX!ous - I don't like giving out my ID since it's an email account.
It's from 2003, back then you had to register with an e-mail address and us veterans never got the chance to change it :-(

It looks like maybe there will be extra content later on. 
#30 Posted by s7evn (1072 posts) -
@The_Laughing_Man: That it is. They did a really good job with the engine and art, but like L4D it seems to have a similar issue with certain multicore cpu's. It could be his graphics card, but I feel that would cause more along the lines of graphics lag, unless he was pushing it to the extreme (maybe a resolution that is out of his gpu's league).

Steam: Perplexed Mind 
 
I downloaded but haven't played it yet. Ill probably play in 30 mins or so.

#32 Posted by StevieQ (241 posts) -

Seems like all these problems could be solved by a little communication. Shout out "Hey techie, hack this station!" or "Medic, need health" and I'm sure things will come along just fine. Remember, there's a lot of new players.

I did watch two of my squad run into a toxic pool and dying. But, they figured out what needed to be done.

#34 Posted by Marz (5666 posts) -

This game wants people to use the source SDK to make new levels.

#35 Posted by Keenblaze (471 posts) -

There's no real explanation about... anything... plus the game just came out (even though the mod has existed for a while), so a lot of people have no idea what to do.  
 
 
You guys feel free to add me and maybe we can play some games, but I don't promise to be the greatest player ever. SteamID: Keenblaze.

It's been out for a day, not even that. Give people a chance to become good.

#47 Posted by Tordah (2484 posts) -

I played several hours today with randoms and even though everyone was new we did okay for the most part. It's pretty easy to get into the basics.
 
There was one player though that didn't understand to escape with the group on the last level, so we all died when the nuke went off. :(
