Im trying to install ut3 on a friends computer so we can play together.

He has a 8400gs, so its a low-end gpu but its not THAT low end... he can always run games on low with native resolution, like Hellgate and Timeshift and assassins creed (which are all graphic intensive)

The problem is the graphics suck on ut3. At first we were having problems changing the resolution at all, it was stuck on 640x480 (or something like that) but I managed to change the resolution inside the utengine.ini file to 1280x1024 and it worked, but it was REALLY slow and it had bad graphics. And the mouse was slow too (if you moved the mouse across the whole screen it took 5 seconds to catch up)

Does anybody know why? Imo an 8400 should be able to run on low with native resolution. Any and all help is appreciated.

UT3 is a very graphic intensive game. I really don't think an 8400gs can play it well even on low settings. He may be able to play other games alright on low, but UT3 is the most graphic intensive out of the ones you listed.
