Question

Now that I have a ton of mods and levels(Tactical ops, chaos, bonus pack, Unreal Fortress, and others) UT is really slow starting up. The precaching, and starting a practice session or bringing up other boxes are really slow. So how can I tweak it to make it run faster? Does no startup work in the shortcut?

:redeemer:

Edit your unrealtournament.ini file in the ut system directory to get rid of the cityintro:

change LocalMap=CityIntro.unr
to LocalMap=UT-Logo-Map.unr

and under preferences change UsePrecache to False.

Well I fixed it, but I cannot find the remove precaching option, and when selecting start practice session it takes a minute to come up

Read what you wrote..

I think you said it all in the first line of the post.

When you pile on all the extra packages UT has to wade thru it all every time you startup and every game start. That's mutators, mods, models, voices, skins, everything!

Rule of thumb is install all you want, but use all you install. Especially true if you're regularly a server on a lan.. People get really pissed when you're forcefeeding them a ton of stuff noone uses.

So how do I uninstall skins and some of the unuseful mutators that came with the game, and those that I downloaded- like boomdeath.

That's a tricky one. Check the readme file for each mod - instructions may be included there.

go to add/remove programs-select UT (this will not uninstall UT). if the mods or skins were in installed via Umod format they will be listed and you can select which mods you wish to un-install.
if the skins or maps were installed manually(Zip) you will have to hunt down the files yourself and delete them.
