    After finishing a level the game crashes to desktop, but its still in the taskbar, by clicking on it the game comes back to life. Its not a major problem but it does get annoying.

    ATi 8500 retail not o/ced
    ATi Catalyst 3.0 and 4012(i think) control pannel
    UT2003 full game with 2166 patch
    DX8.1

    Whilst upgrading from 2.5 to 3.0 i completely removed the old drivers inc. from registry.

    Cheers

    You might want to install the older drivers that came with the Unreal Tournament 2003 CD3. That game is very particular about what drivers are installed.

    yeah it's the OS not the game.
    you need to see what is running in the background too.
