Will UT2003 require a hardware T&L video card?
It is not strictly required, but strongly recommended.
The owners of video cards without hardware transform & lighting chip (such as Kyro2, Voodoo, TNT, …) will be glad to hear that UT2003 will run on such cards. However, no promises are made regarding the performance. If your video card does not have H-T&L, then your CPU has to be considerably faster than the min requirements to compensate for the additional load.
MarkRein[Epic]: Tim Sweeney says NO Voodoo3 support at all. The new engine is 32bit only and requires stencil buffering (two features Voodoo3 doesn't have) so the minimum card would be a TNT2. Sorry for you Voodoo3 users. Voodoo3 was a great card for us in the past but technology marches on.
if the leaked demo won't run with a voodoo 3, wat makes u think the retail version will... that's why i'm getting a gf3 ti200
6-20-02 - Posted by Nighty Okay! Official word from Mark Rein himself (VP Epic Games) is that the V3 and V5 will work with UT2k3! Not only that, but they have added 16bit color support. Excellent job, and kudo's to Epic and the entire UT2k3 team for not forgetting the loyal fanbase of the 3dfx community!
