    The easiest way to find U2XMP servers these days is to install xFire on your machine. Go to http://xfire.com

    Edit: Whoops. I didn't see andrelax's closing comment before I posted mine.

    I just got ut2004 and am trying to install utxmp_publicbeta1_full_ins.exe (first question is, is that the right file?) when trying to install it I get this error. 'Cannot install file "C:\UT2004\UTXMP\UT2K4MOD.ini"'. Am I doing something wrong here? I just wanna play UTXMP

    That's the right file. Are you sure you have read/write permissions?

    hmmm, I don't know. Why wouldnt I? Here's my setup. I'm on Windows 2000 Professional. Is there a way to change read/write settings? I don't get it, help?

    Am I supposed to use the utxmp_publicbeta1a_patch_ins.exe instead?

    Only if you have the full install. That file is just the 1A patch. You could try downloading the zip version of the install and unzip it into your UT2004 directory.

    Sure.

    EDIT: After unzipping that into your UT2004 installation directory, create a new shortcut to UT2004.exe and place it wherever. Rightclick on the short cut, click Properties. In the window that pops up find the 'Target' field on the 'Shortcut' tab, and append "-mod=UTXMP" (without the quotes) to it. Running UT2004 via that shortcut will then start UTXMP.

    For example, my 'Target' field reads

    Code:
    D:\Games\UT2004\System\UT2004.exe -mod=UTXMP
    
    EDIT2: Make sure your UT2004 version is 3339 (the latest).
    After installing UTXMP, don't forget to patch UTXMP to 1a.

    Unreal II is ~$3-6.
    UT2004 is ~$20.

    Anyhow the reason that most of the better players are playing U2XMP rather than UTXMP is because the gameplay in UTXMP is different enough to prevent those people from being as good. Also the current bugs lower the standard of being "good" at fragging to simply aim and turret spamming, rather than the tactile movement system of U2XMP and the balance achieved by deployables. Just in case you wanted to know "in a nutshell."

    I got UT2004 just because UT2004 is a great well-made game; it's well worth getting UT2K4 just for UT2K4. Consider UT:XMP as a bonus. :)



    Also, you can run UT2004 mods by running UT2004, going to the "Community" menu, selecting the mod section, and then selecting UTXMP and hitting "Run" or whatever. Takes more time than the edit .exe way though.

    True. The main reason why I still rather play U2XMP than UTXMP is the movement. U2 just feels fluid and graceful while UT feels, hmm, borked. I'm having a hard time doing simple dodges for example, especially right after you land after a jump. There's always this slight pause which feels like I'm in some kind of old stop-motion movie and which totally kills my immersion. A pity, really, because other than that, FMI nailed it pretty good, IMO. Yep, there's numerous bugs still in the previous build, but from the changelog, a lot of those have been quashed, so I'm having high hopes for the next patch.

    .. and don't get me started on the vehicles, the raptor especially - that thing is nigh indestructable, gah!

    Nope, its Unreal 2 you need. There are also certain "patches" on the internet that might mean you don't need a cd at all :mwink:
    edit: If you're after more info on u2xmp, pop on over to it's forums here

    alternatively you can just drop a complete u2xmp installation from one machine to another. their antipiracy is as good as their anti cheat (and their product support for that matter)
    unreal2 is a good game anyway i reckon - i enjoyed it at least. it's just a fps game but was pretty and imaginative.

    What for? There hasn't been a CD-check in UT2k4 in a long time, might have even been so since its release.

    I think it's against the rules here to talk about hacks - watch yerself. Also, I'm pretty sure UT2K4 does do a cd check, at least if you're playing online.

    no there's no cd/dvd check -for mine at least (it was the dvd version)- but you need the code to play online. That's what you're really buying.

    The cd-check was patched out early.

    OK, I must be thinking about the code/cd-key.
