Damn, finally managed to get UT working and tested with 7B, ONP and a couple of other maps. Everything works just fine.
But Enslaved ??? 1 BIG problem: I can't save, the save area is dimmed and that is bugger;
First the positive news: I've read the old Enslaved topic (8th anniversary contest) and everything concerning visuals still stands, or is even bettered. Bugs? haven't really encountered anything problematic (expect for 1 thing- may not be a bug).
Then the bad news:
1. On first playthrough I was overwhelmed by tons of Skaarj emerging from nowhere and it took me quite some time before I found out there was a rogue Nali somewhere summoning them. Later on it happens again. This is a learn by dying multiple times situation;: it's not easy so see where that Nali is so you can't kill him fast enough to prevent a fairly high number of Skaarj closing in. Yes it's possible to survive (not for the faint-hearted) but with only the DP and the automag (or enforcer) with limited ammo, it's a real tester.
2. And it happens again a bit further, and that second time I had absolutely no idea where that Nali was. So that made me go into god mode. In a later playthrough I managed to get to the machinegun in time without godmode but with still no idea where that Nali was, which didn't help anything. On a new playthrough I immediately went looking for the Nali and managed to kill him but again there were like 30 or more Skaarj roaming around. I still haven't found a trustworthy method guaranteeing me to pass that area using skill alone (DP alone can work but is really hard and automag ammo is limited.
3 Some good news
from then on it's really fun (and hard but 100% acceptable)
4 With some good luck, lots of backtracking but mainly pure genius
I managed to reach the area with the Warlord and even slaughtered the beast (am I glad I saved all my heavy ammo because I am shit at aiming with those machineguns. I was even clever enough to jump on to some teleporter platform and thus reached the top one of those mountain pillars which can be seen from below. Then I get a message that access to the underground section is granted: BUT I´M STUCK very high with no way to go down (the structure which looks as though it could be a teleporter doesn't seem to function anymore.Edit
: this seems to be the same issue AlCapowned has

I'm leaving it at this for the moment while I try to reinstall UT.
