    A lot of users are currently having some Connection Failed errors after they installed a custom map or a custom mod on their UT2004 installation. I had this problem and I found a simple solution that fixes it all.

    Step 1: Download files

    Step 2: Extract ALL files to your UT2004\System directory.

    Step 3: If your user ini file is not called User.ini, please modify the bat file. (Change all "user" to your ini name...)

    Step 4: Run modfix.bat

    This should fix your problems. It changes a key in your User.ini file that causes a problem (Your current active gametype). Remember to run it everytime the problem comes back again.

    Some of you are going to ask me "What does it do?" Well here is for you:

    In your User.ini, section [GUI2K4.UT2k4ServerBrowser]
    It changes the CurrentGameType value to xGame.xTeamGame

    That's the only thing it does... But it's easier to run a bat file that does the job for you

    DOSINI.COM: dos program I use to edit INI's
    modfix.bat: the file you run
    modfix.dat: the INI Modifier Script (Openable in Notepad)

    Will this fix the Connection problems for JailBreak?

    You can achieve the same by going into the game, switching away from Jailbreak in the server browser and restarting the game. The problem is that UT2004's code keeps Jailbreak's package around in memory if you just even once selected it in that drop-down list.

    The next Jailbreak patch will incorporate a "fix" for this.

    Yes, but some, instead of restarting the game, will just, when they plan to use a default GameType, run the batch, and then the game.
