problem please help me
ok i just got unreal tournament. when i was setting it up it says choose a video card and it gives me 2 options... software rendering and direct 3D support.. when i go with direct 3d support it starts loading up UT then gets out of it and says "Failed to preallocate initial tectures, 4 x 4 DD_ok... and then it says a bunch of other crap.. but when i load into UT with software rendering it works.. but everything is really really slow and really dark.. i hardly can see anythin. does anyone know whats the problem? please help me, thanks

UT is fairly slow in D3D anyway (was primarily written for 3dfx I believe)...
To help I'd need a little more info like your computer specs... and as always make sure you have the lastest patch from unreal.epicgames.com
Really need to know your Video card and CPU/mobo

Download the latest d3ddrv.dll and use it instead of the one you have now....I had the same problem and this fixed it
(Which Vid Card do you have??)

if you have an older video card it might not support d3d and thats why you have to use software rendering

You can get the direct3D dll at www.unrealtournament.com in the directx section.

right click on your desktop and select poperties. Goto settings. It will say "Display:" followed by the monitor and graphics card. Mine says "Samsung Syncmaster(m)s 700 (CGE7507*) on Voodoo3 AGP. I have a Samsung SyncMaster 700s for a monitor and a Voodoo3 2000 AGP for a graphics card.
If it does not say enough thee you can goto advanced and click on addaptor. You can also click start/setings/conrol pannel/system/device manager/display addaptor and see what is there. Mine says "3dfx Voodoo3"... 3dfx is the manufacturer.
With that, we can tell you your system will pobably need a new vidio card and depending on how old your system is, a new CPU also.

ok i just downloaded directx 7.0a which is the latest version and it still didn't help.. still same problem? any other ideas?
July 4th, 2000, 03:34 AM
Yeah, I've got the same one too. Download this file
and replace the d3ddrv.dll in the unreal\system dir with this one. That'll fix it.
