    I noticed on the site that you have to have Unreal Tournament 2004 in order to run utxmp. Which one do I get though? I'm running Win. 2000 and it seems that just plain old Unreal Tournament 2004 doest run under Win 2000. Is that correct? or am I reading this wrong at amazon? Do I have to get Unreal Tournament 2004 - Editor's Choice in order to have it work on win 2000?

    It'll run fine under 2000. The ECE version just comes with the ECE bonus pack prepackaged, plus a DVD full of other mods. Get whichever version is more conveinent to you, as the ECE and all the mods are free to download anyway.

    YES, you need the ECE bonus pack, which may or not come with your store bought version of UT2k4, but is a free download if it's missing.

    No, you don't need ECE to play UTXMP. You do however need the latest UT2004 patch.

    The answer to that question will depend on who answers your question and also how you define "play".

    Regarding "playing" the game, I am such a bad player that some would consider what I do is butcher the game and just get in the ways of the real players. "Sorry." :)

    There are definitely people who play UTXMP, including myself. However, it seems to be a bit hard to get a game going sometimes. I have found though, that if I go into a server, like BBF, and start playing, there is almost always some more players that will join up within 5 to 10 minutes. Just the other day, for example, I looked at the list of servers and they were all empty. I went ahead and started messing around in the map on the BBF server. Within 2 minutes, literally, another player showed up. Then, within 10 more minutes there was 8 players, and we had some great games.

    I think some people may be waiting it out for the next patch to come too.

    Some might say that the only "game" is U2XMP. I like them both and try to "play" them both.

    what's the difference. I played xmp before with the last unreal and I expect utxmp to be the same, right?

    They are basically the same game. But UTXMP is a work in progress, so it has stuff that needs to be completed, modified, tweaked, corrected, etc. It is a solid game the way it is right now, but it is not "complete."

    Refer to the thread in this forum titled, "Yahoo IM handles for those wishing to meet in game" to get the names of guys playing. Install xfire, and add some of the names listed there, and then you will be able to jump into some games.

    I understand that if you have UT2004 then the d/l for UTXMP is free. Is it the same for U2XMP?

    Sort of. You need to have Unreal2 in order to install U2XMP. U2XMP is a free download. But it will not install onto your computer unless you have the play disk for Unreal2 in your CD drive the first time. Once it is installed and patched, then the play disk for Unreal2 is no longer necessary to play it.
