Unreal - Renderer And Texture Replacers?
I'm replaying Unreal, using Kentie's Direct3D 10 renderer, which seems nice. According to its feature list, it's supposed to support S3TC textures, such as the S3TC Stock Unreal Textures Extreme End sets, but the option doesn't turn up in advanced settings - and it doesn't help to add the line manually to the ini either.

Anyone who knows if it's possible to use them together - or if there are alternatives for rendering and/or HD textures?

The latter might not matter so much because the game actually looks rather good, but I'd like to be able to check out texture replacers if nothing else.

Not Sure About That Particular Rendered 
but I would recommend installing the unofficial 227 patch from OldUnreal.com :

http://oldunreal.com/oldunrealpatches.html

That patch has a D3D8 and 9 rendered but I much prefer the OpenGL rendered (which used to be previously called the UTGLR renderer). 
 
oh wow?? i had no idea there was a modified unreal engine?? might be worth replaying some old unreal engine games! 
 
ohh ok, i see, it's just the renderer portion, not the entire engine. still, maybe this will fix some weird graphical glitches I see when I run those older games.

UT has one as well, which combined with the Oldskool mod means you can play Unreal maps in UT too (SP that is).

As for other games, I couldnt install WoT on Windows7 so never got to try if it works with that. Pretty sure it worked with Rune but cant remember 100%. 
And Yeah 
the original game renderers do funky things with modern day graphics cards, plus generally dont scale to them either. 
 
so it's actually been a while since i messed with unreal... turns out I already had a dx10 driver in there, but selecting it in the advanced settings results in an error... i'm not even sure, maybe this is the UT engine?? gods below, i can't remember it's been so long.

i'll have to mess with this tomorrow when i'm not drowsy... 
 
I'll check that out nitin. The D3D10 renderer doesn't work with the unofficial patch, but I'll try it and its renderer.

I briefly tested running RTNP:UE for UT, but had missing enemies, plus I didn't notice any advantages compared to the Unreal engine (albeit, it was a brief test as said).

Also, the S3TC HD textures do sort of work with the D3D10 renderer, but there are issues - for one thing the reflections seem to be gone. 
 
Yes, the OpenGL renderer that comes with the Unofficial 227 patch is nice and works fine with the S3TC textures as well. I think I'll go with it. :) 
227 Patch 
+1 for the 227 patch. Ok it means you can now play the game on a modern computer, but also, it has a mutator for the single player game that restores the original weapon sounds.

Remember how at some point Epic "patched" the game to change the weapon sounds into these obnoxious overly loud atrocities that drowned out everything else in the game?

Well now you can play all those wonderful hours of obscure "Oh god what did that button do? Should I press it again?" level design from the 90s, but now with the proper, atmospheric sounds that you remember from the good old days, lovingly restored, and it is very cool. 
Yeah 
I remember the sound changes, wasnt it around the time they tried to make it sound like UT?

arkngt, the main advantage of playing UT with the oldskool mod is to be able to play some of the very finest SP packs that took advantage of UT features :

Operation Na Pali
7 Bullets
Xidia
Project Zephon
Gryphon Revisited
