Windows 7 x64 build
 
 

I'm running Windows 7 x64 and it works great for me no problems. But I don't have Nvidia, Mine is a ATI 4850. I used the new catalyst drivers. No gripes complains or moans. game still caps out at 60. 150 when i remove the cap.

I do remember however that there were some problems with Fallout 3 and the ATI cards with the fact that some symbol was changed ( used a ? instead of a -). Maybe thats the case with this? Donno just a thought incase it helps

I am running 7 64bit and have nvidia 8800gt with latest beta driver.

When I launch (steam copy) I get the message:

'You are using a version of the NVIDIA display driver which has compatibility issues with unreal3.

Please update your driver to the latest version.'

When I run the game it freezes a bit on the game menus and is prone to crashing whilst in game fairly often.

What Build are you using?
Underneath the 7000 build is the vista kernal which runs SOME (not all) vista programs correctly.
These Drivers Should work nicely. Don't worry about Beta drivers yet. The ATI beta drivers werent that great either. I noticed a drop in FPS when I had them running VS the Win Vista 64 drivers on Windows 7.

Give it a try and let us know how it goes!

Oh! and when you uninstall drivers use this to clean up the DLL and uni and all those kinds of files that were left over so you dont get any cyber residue on your newly installed drivers

I'm having the exact same problem as TommyGibbs. Switching to the Vista drivers didn't change anything. Any other ideas? I'd really like to be playing this game...

Have you tried going into C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\Steamapps\Common\UT3\ and settings UT3.exe to Vista or XP compatibility mode?

Still not working

Just tried it, same problem. I'm also having the issue that there isn't any sound during the FMVs. Thanks for the suggestion. Sigh, guess that might be twelve bucks I'll never see again.

I donno whats up with Nvidia then. My ATI card played it right off the bat.

Although I have noticed that in 64bits versions of playing UT3 there is no sound in the cutscenes, although if you play online with a friend it plays with lag. Weird

You might as well create a partition and install Vista on it or XP and play it that way but you can still install to the Windows 7 partition.

UT3 running fine through Steam for me on 7048, although I suck at the damn thing lol

Good game though!

I bought UT3 when it came out and was quite disappointed with it. Seemed too 'cartoony' to me, if you know what I mean! Also, I think that Call of Duty has really spoilt me now.

I will fish this game out now and give it a go on Windows 7. I'll let you know what happens.
