Vista!!!!
Sep 3rd, 2007 at 9:41pm

Hi all

I have just upgraded, to a Dell Dimension 9200. with a Quad core Intel processor, running Vista, with a Nevada geforce 8600GTS

UT runs very smoothly and it looks fantastic  Smiley

Only problem is when playing online, all the other players do not have any movement, their bodies are static and they just slide around.

Does anybody else have this prob, is there a fix??

I have the latest opengl drivers installed but makes no difference.

Please please help, I can not be without UT  Embarrassed

would be a possible explanation for this problem, indeed.
Using the s3tc textures on a server could exactly cause this problem. But if it happens on any server, it is more likely that the problem is on your side somehow.

Otherwise, I can't see a direct relation to Vista in this case. Looks simply like network trouble of some kind.
What about other games? Do they run online without problems?
Aside that, the usual, like p2p sharing progs, other things maybe running in background. Also possible, but more unlikely, maybe some mis-configured firewall.
You could try to start a dedicated server on your computer and start UT again to join your own server. How does it behave then? (remember not to use s3tc textures for your server!)

I think you maybe onto something there. Some maps I have now found to be OK (Very few though) and the game it's self played on my local PC is fine  Roll Eyes

I have that problem in all bunnytrack servers, I have no idea wheter it's caused by BT itself or all BT admins have installed s3tc server side. Some ppl from the BT community have said that it's caused by an incorrect version of skeletal.u or advancedmodelsupport.

What I don't understand is that I'm not using the s3tc textures yet that sliding but happens in all BT servers.
