    Bummer, "unreal tournament not found, aborted" when trying to execute:(

    A simple zip would be nice :)

    BTW, are custom mutators detected in this as well?

    Unreal Tournament 3 must be installed properly, and the registry keys must be set properly. The installer will check for the registry key, and if it doesn't find it, it will abort.

    The thing is, my UT3 folder is not in the mydocuments/my games folder anymore. I have it re-routed to another partition in the actual UT3 folder. A lot of people have it set up this way. I believe this is the problem.

    Like I said, i'd rather have a zip version to install myself.

    Neither is mine. However, I will provide a zip version along with an installer.

    The menu bar is not working here: Menus are not displayed when you click on them and no text is being displayed at all. The menu buttons are highlighted when you move the cursor over them, but that's all... :hmm:
    I didn't uninstall the other version before installing this one, could that be the problem? (probably not...)

    Are you running the batch file or the shortcut link that is provided with the installer?

    It is advisible to remove the previous versions.

    Is the server browser supposed to work in the version you already released? Because on my end it is unavailable, even when I'm connected online.
    Here's hoping that if it isn't, it will be in final, as uWindow2 will be the my alternative to the UT3 HUD and I would like to use it all the time :)

    No. I'm rushing to try to add this before 26th.

    Cool. Hopefully as things develop, it will be nicer.

    Great. Thanks!

    My only question is a bit OT. Is Bersy going to release that background as a desktop wallpaper? I'd like to use it.

    Btw, can't wait to try out the "Windows."

    Making my own game engine right now, and a game along with it. You can view the development of the engine within my development blog. It's not going to be anything like Unreal Engine 3 of course, but its a nice engine so far.

    heh nice one DP.

    I'll pm it to you if you like Crotale, just that I didn't think it would be appropriate to release a wallpaper publically before the final release and submission of uWin2.

    I'll have to keep an eye out for your version, I'm sure it's great like all your other work :)
