hey all, my ut2k3 just crashed and it says that the problem is in engine.dll in the /system dir. can anyone give me a link or send it to my email (frendzo@satline.net) in zip form, i really need it cause if i reoinstall the game itll take forever and besides i have to install mods and models and mutators and itll take up my whole afternoon.

thx to whoever sends it :)

i think, not sure, that if you uninstall ut2k3, it will leave all the mod files and folders

but i can send it to ya through mirc if ya'd like

don't uninstall it at all, just install over it and it will replace the files, then all you'll have to do is run the newest patch again and you'll be set.

lmao, i just saw that there were replies. it still gives me the error, everyday once. but i know how to deal with it - just start the latest ut2k3 patch (dont install) go to the C:\Document and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\ then theres a folder with a name containing numbers and letters (like WE46YH <- thats not it). open the folder go to UT2003 then System (in that same folder) and copy ur ut2k3 exe and ued exe (it also crashes) and just replace the exes - if ut2k3 has crashed - the ut2k3 exe . if ued crashed - the unrealed.exe

i ve noticed that when the game is not crashing the ut2003.exe is 168 kb. when it crashes it goes to 345kb (or 3 hundred something). same with the unrealed.exe - before its 2108 kb aftre the crash its more.

also if you just leave the working exes somewhere (not C: ), when the game crashes itll stull **** up even those exes. thats why i ve renamed the working exes to ut2003.bak and unrealed.bak . if it crashes i just delete the stupid exe and copy the working one in the system folder. and rename it of course.

ps to access the Local Settings folder u need to set the folder settings to "reveal hidden files and folders". u should know where to change the settigns (ur not a n00b, ru? ;) )
