UT2004 Patch Install
 
I just installed UT2004 to a local dir /home/carlos/ut2004 & I downloaded the latest patch from unreals website called ut2004-lnxpatch3339.tar.bz2 which is saved to /home/carlos

- How exactly do I install or apply this patch?

- Also are there any map packs or anything like that I will need when I play online?

All you have to do is extract the file and then cut and paste into the UT2004 folder and you will have the patch installed and the same goes for the maps that you can download and install. There are some map packs that you can find and download.

What is the command to extract ut2004-lnxpatch3339.tar.bz2 this in its current directory so I can mv the files to /home/carlos/ut2004

well I know in KDE you can right click on the file and chose extract here and it will create the folder and what not for you then you can just cut and paste the files into your UT2004 dir.

But in cmd line I think it is tar -xvfj ut2004-lnxpatch3339.tar.bz2
then you know the rest.

Or you can use this script to install and remove patches (if they screw things up) :

What did I do wrong? As you can see I did everything from my home directory since I have the game saved in /home/carlos/ut2004 and now the patch has been untarred in a directory called /home/carlos/UT2004-Patch

Code:

[carlos@server ~]$ ls
Desktop  mp3                            ut2004
files    NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1  ut2004-lnxpatch3339.tar.bz2
icons    pics                            wallpaper
movies  sarge-i386-netinst.iso
[carlos@server ~]$ tar -jxvf ut2004-lnxpatch3339.tar.bz2
****Lots of files decompressing****
[carlos@server ~]$ ls

try:

chmod -r u+rw ~/ut2004

then:

cd ~/UT2004-Patch
cp -R ./* ../ut2004

edit: or mv!

carlosinfl 02-23-2005 02:40 PM

Code:

[carlos@server ~]$ chmod -r u+rw /home/carlos/ut2004
chmod: cannot access `u+rw': No such file or directory

carwill, use the script i posted above. It does it all for you :-) Just right click it and save as.

Tuttle 02-23-2005 07:24 PM

oops sorry, "-r" is wrong option, should be "-R"!

(man chmod man!)

I clicked on the link and see it some kind of script but when I save it to my directory /home/carlos, what do I do then? Sorry, just want to be sure I don't mess this up.

After you have downloaded the script and the patch to your home directory, do :

sh ut2k4-patch ut2004-lnxpatch3355.tar.bz2

in a console.

carlosinfl 02-24-2005 06:00 PM

So I just right click that URL and "save as"? When I double left click the URL I get a HTML page with a bunch of sripting codes.

Phorem 02-25-2005 09:57 AM

Ya, you would right click, then save as to your home direcotry. Then you would do :

sh ut2k4-patch ut2004-lnxpatch3355.tar.bz2

in a console.
