    Erm, well we'd need a bit more info than that...

    Did it ask you to select a vehicle? Do you see the vehicle you've selected anywhere? Are you stuckin spectator mode after selecting a vehicle? Which server did you try to join, the problem could be an incorrectly set up server.

    And it's not "so messed up" until a bunch of other people have the same problem.

    Did you try one server or did this happen even on the official servers?

    Sounds like the bug where you made a server or joined a locally created one that didn't have the right server packages loaded. Before we figured this out my buddy and I would 'join' the round and it would spawn us on the track after we pressed fire, but all we could see were standard UT2K4 models and halo effects where the lights are supposed to be on the cars. I've never had a problem joining an official server though, they are all set up correctly.

    Theres at least 3 offical - then theres two non-offical which are up most of the time - one by BU. You need to check for different race types - remember as well that once on an offical server you can change the gametype via the map vote system.

    Time for the ole brutal trio.

    1. Make sure you are running on the newest version (the server's UT version should also match yours). If not, patch up.

    2. Change the names of your User.ini and UT2004.ini to User.ini.bak and UT2004.ini.bak respectively. Then, reconfigure the basic stuff and try joining a server. You will lose your settings, but it is the best way to find out if there is a problem with your configuration.

    3. Reinstall UT2004 and UnWheel. (Ouch)

    Not being able to play when the game is minimized is

    a) not UnWheel's problem
    b) not enough information for us to help
    c) most likely due to you having a slow computer
    d) pointless, you should play in fullscreen anyhow

    Glad I could help. Unfortunately, minimizing the game in painful for most of the game engines, and even though Unreal handles it quite OK, it will stay an unsupported feature. So, I suppose you should just NOT minimize the game... or exit instead of minimizing.

    All right, make sure no damn program is running in the background that always leads attention to itself. Remove every item from the taskbar (bottom-right corner of screen) except your antivirus or firewall (if applicable). Do not use any other programs side-to-side with UT2004, if possible.

    If that is the case then just stop running it minimized.

    Patient: Doctor! It hurts when I rip my arm off like this... *OW!!!* See!? :mad:
    Doctor: :rolleyes: Stop doing that.
