    Do these all work in either of these operating systems? My old desktop computer where all are still installed is getting old (ok, older, in its 10th year) and was just wondering if I can still keep playing when it goes. Thank you.:confused:

    So, the one file is for Win7/Win8 systems and the other is for Win10 systems?

    Also, UT2004 and UT3 work with Win8 and Win10 no problem? Thank you.

    To run older games in newer Windows you will need to install the full DirectX 9 distro from the Microsoft site.
    Do not install them in the main programs folder. Make a Games folder in the root of your partition.

    You don't need to add any files to your game folders, but you may want to update the video and audio renderers for UT99.
    These are best downloaded from the authors sites where you will find the documentation and help.
    OldUnreal is the home of the newest renderers and the only ones being updated.

    For UT2004 there is a 64bit version of the final patch. This will also add a DX9 renderer.

    You can find the files in the Beyond Unreal Liandri Archives

    So, the full DX9 distro just has to be in same partition as the games running it, correct?

    May we have not the same Windows 10 like mine It is coming with full files d3dx?
    Tape d3dx9 in search at C:\sys32.


    There is direcx9 "d3dx9" for windows

    and

    D3D9Drv for system folder UT
    In my build you have nothing to do ; the game start directly under OpenGL but you can select D3D9 it is in place and set correctly.
    If you don't use my build you must download D3D9 and create-set it in UnrealTournament.ini. http://unrealtournament.99.free.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=213

    Run the DX9 installer on the system you want to play on. It will install the missing DirectX files in the system.
    Now all old games and software that use DX7, 8 and 9 should play much better (you can also opt for the newer DX10, 11 or GL renderers in many UE1 games)
    The original UT99 video renderer is for DX7, and the original OpenGL renderer is buggy and not finished.
    The original UT200x renderer is for DX8. The only update is the x64 patch for 2004 with the DX9 renderer.

    Ideally if you use an nVidia you should see the best performance with OpenGL, and if you use ATI or intel you should see the best performance with DirectX

    Using DirectX9 and above will allow you to use shader mods such as ENB and Reshader.
    There are similar tools for OpenGL, but not as well developed.

    UT will be OpenGL as my Win8.1 laptop is Nvidia just like my desktop. UT2004 looks like it's DirectX, so I'll keep it that. UT3 probably will install fine without problems on my Win8.1 laptop. I'll be downloading all the files I need over the next month or so, so I'm ready if anything happens. I also need to backup all the game files in a couple places (yes, I'm paranoid about computer files). Thank you all for your help so far.:DD
