First impression

The game is running with nice speed at 1280x1024 so we wait for good performances on V5 5500 cards (at least) at 800x600. This engine is more efficient than previous UT 2003 (also with not 3dfx cards). Programmers got both performance and high video quality on most systems and solved horizontal lines problem that UT 2003 had with multiple VSA-100 cards.

My System:
Motherboard: ASUS P4S533
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 2,26GHz (533MHz FSB)
Memory: 512MB Samsung PC2700 DDR-SDRAM (2x256MB)
And offcourse: My videocard is a Voodoo 5 5500 AGP.

UT2004 Demo

I just played a level at 800x600@32bit with most settings (graphics detail) set to normal and it was playable!

I saw there was a timedemo file in the benchmarks/stuff dir. Anyone know how to run it?

I have the demo now,its d3d,and its very playable on my athlon 1400/voodoo5 5500 system (800*600,low detail).wow,this game actually supports voodoo3-definitely the newest game that runs on a voodoo3.
however,that strange desktop distortion after exiting the game is still present..
and software mode is supported too,man I feel like 1998.

Well if you could get this out from his sentence: athlon 1400 that should tell you what kind of CPU he has AMD Athlon Thunderbird B/C 1400Mhz

OMG! 1400MHz? What a waste of power. :X
Glide, one tip: upgrade to at least an Athlon XP 2500+
That should get you, if I'm not mistaking, about 15% ~ 25% more (framerate):P

lol guys,

a system with 1400Mhz processor cannot run UT 2004 at 1280x1024x32 with enough frame rate. These shots have been captured by a AMD Athlon XP (barton core and 3000+ performance rating) based machine.

What's your framerate btw?

At 800x600@16bit with normal settings I get an average of about 20 FPS.
That's on a V5 5500/P4 2.26GHz and without FSAA.
Strange thing is though that I also seem to be getting this average when I set the details to low :S

@jarod
- do you the meaning when you write like THAT ?
- you write also in the section "Gaming with Voodoos" - Screenshots
that doesn't "seem" to be the section that you need... since you own a GForce

I'm a first time poster too, but I saw this problem and I had to respond. I had seriious framerate issues with this game until I did this:
1: Go into your ut2004\system directroy
2:Open up your ut2004.ini file in any text editor (After having backed it up first, obviously.)
3: Find the line VARSize=32
4: Change it to VARSize=64
Enjoy a slightly less choppy gamin experience. this changes the amount of agp memory the game can use, or something along those lines, anyway.
For obvious reasons, it's best only to attempt this fix if you have more than 64meg of video memory.
