    a quick howto:

    1) launch umodwizard & select ut2004, the correct path to your game is needed.

    2) create a group (name does not matter) by clicking on "create group", and add some files by clicking on "add files" ;)

    3) when you've finished adding your stuff, it should look like in this picture.

    4) ini entrys, skip this page by clicking on "next", it's not needed for a mappack anyway.

    5) add some requirements, like ut2004 with minimum 3355 as version or jailbreak greater or equal 2004b (hint: 2004b version of jailbreak is number 102, i've just entered 2004b for demonstration purposes)

    oops no more picture space left :eek:

    mkai, here we go.

    6) add some fancy information, ...well picture explains it i guess ;)

    7) logo position (340x82@256colors max) & ut4mod file name

    8) by clicking on "generate" a dosbox will popup and create that ut4mod file. it'll be located into your ut2004/System folder

    9) launch your newly created ut4mod installer, and it could look like shown in here.


    easy eh ? hf :)

    edit: wrong picture

    Thanks :)

    The files I add -- should they be in their correct location when I pick them, or will the Umod installer know where to put maps etc?
    Do the groups mean anything?
    Should the readme and the logo already be added as files to the umod?
    What does 'cleanup files' mean? Will it wipe the files I've added or what?

    Anyway, unless there's a way round this problem with all UMODs on UT2004, I'm not in a position to test anything I make.
    I'm running the latest patch.

    erhm..

    easiest way is: you install your files into your ut2004. then you pick the maps/meshes/.u-files directly from your game. then paths are correct.

    you can create multiple groups to make something like shown here:
    http://udn.epicgames.com/Two/UmodInstaller/groups.jpg
    but for your mappack, just go for one group & you should be fine.

    yes. logo wont be shown if not. and at the end of an ut4mod installation there's a little button called "readme" wich will be linked to your readme.

    YES IT WILL KILL YOUR ENTIRE HARDDISK !!1
    nah it'll delete those helper-files wich are created during the compiling. ;)

    now stop asking questions AND TEST IT, you'll see, it's easy.

    Easiest way for me is to make a folder of all the files for the map pack, called 'JB map pack' and pick them from there instead of going through all the other folders.
    Will that work though?

    Well, what a stupid option to put in. Why wouldn't I want to remove the helper files? Or why not? 'cleanup' doesn't really say anything meaningful.

    As said above, I can't test my umod files. So I'll have to leave this until I find out how to do that.

    You might wish to manually edit them. I did that a lot back when UMOD wizard didn't know how to create selectable groups.

    As I've said, I can't.
    My UT2004 installation is fux0red and can't open ANY UMODs.

    You tried reapplying the latest patch?
    That *should* fix it

    Yup, it has.
    Thanks :)

    And it doesn't work if I put the maps in a sensible, out of the way place :( :stick: What's the point of computers if they can't make things easier???
