to read bNoConsoleDeathMessages=False
to read bNoConsoleDeathMessages=False 5. How do I uncap my FPS?
Open UTEngine.ini, and in the section [Engine.GameEngine] set bSmoothFrameRate=False6. How do I disable mouse acceleration?
In the UTInput.ini, set the following:
[UTGame.UTConsolePlayerInput]bViewAccelerationEnabled=false7. How do I turn off the Startup Movies (more like commercials if you ask me)?
Script out the following line in the UTEngine.ini as shown below:
;+StartupMovies=UT_loadmovie18. How do I disable Bobbing?
[UTGame.UTPlayerController]bLandingShake=false9. Throw Weaponhttp://www.unrealnorth.com/forum.php...topic&id=50559
There is no throw weapon button in configure controls menu. Weaponthrowing is available through ini-editing IF the mutator Weapon-Respawn is loaded. All you have to do, is modify the [Engine.PlayerInput] section of the UTInput.ini by adding a last line with your binding:Bindings=(Name="Name of the Key, e.g. Spacebar", Command="ThrowWeapon")
for example to bind the function to SpaceBar: Bindings=(Name="SpaceBar", Command="ThrowWeapon")10. How do I make my mouse sensitivity like it was in UT2004?
Lets dig the ut2004 settings to get some info first.
-Open user.ini in your ut2004/system folder and serch for "MouseSensitivity"
-Get the number associated with it.
-Run UT3 and set the mouse sensitivity to 1, then exit.
-open UTInput.ini in your C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\My Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3 Demo\UTGame\Config folder
And now to set the rotation to the same as your 2k4 rotation:
Take your UT2k4 sensitivity that we got in the first step and multiply it by 2.4
Here is an example::
UT2004 sens was .50, multiplied by 2.4 gives me 1.2.
This is the number that we will use to get UT3 to feel the same.
A few lines down in the same file as above (UTInput.ini) you will find: Bindings=(Name="MouseX",Command="Count bXAxis | Axis aMouseX")
Bindings=(Name="MouseY",Command="Count bYAxis | Axis aMouseY")
And we will add the new rotation speed into it like this: Bindings=(Name="MouseX",Command="Count bXAxis | Axis aMouseX Speed=1.2")
Bindings=(Name="MouseY",Command="Count bYAxis | Axis aMouseY Speed=1.2")
Save and close UTInput.ini
This setting will stick unlike any changes to the MouseSensitivity setting.11. Does the game crash and give you the dreaded BSOD on startup?
Try this: In the UTEngine.ini, under the section of [Engine.ISVHacks], set bInitializeShadersOnDemand=True12. Do you want to change the names of pickups, weapons, vehicles, and change death messages?
You need to go into the utgame.int file in
C:\Program Files\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Localization\INT. Make sure you change the files from being READ ONLY as well.Example of custom Deathmessage
[UTDmgType_LinkBeam]DeathString="`k |**GREEN SHAFT**| `o"
FemaleSuicide="`o shafted herself."
MaleSuicide="`o shafted himself."Weapons Name
[UTVehicle_Cicada]VehiclePositionString="in a Cicada"
[UTArmorPickup_Vest]PickupMessage="50a"13. How do I change my preferred team?

How do I change to an alternate directory for storing "My Documents" game folders?Try this. 15. How do I change the colors of my crosshair:
in UTWeapon.ini, add the following line:CrosshairColor=(R=a,G=b,B=c,A=d)
a, b, c and d are numbers between 0 (none at all) and 255 (all out).
a: amount of Red
b: amount of Green
c: amount of Blue
d: transparency of the crosshair (advised to keep this at 255).
Adding the line to the [UTGame.UTWeapon] changes the default color of the weapons.
Adding the line to any of the weapon paragraphs ([UTGame.UTWeap_<something>]) changes this weapon's color from the default setting to whatever you enter there.16. How do I add armour parts from one faction to another?http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showp...1&postcount=71CONSOLE COMMANDS
