Unhappy Unreal Tournament Just Wont Run


I installed Unreal Tournament v436 GOTY [Both CDs] using Loki's installer, but I cant seem to get the damn thing to play.
When I run 'ut' I get this:

Quote:
Unreal engine initialized
Bound to SDLDrv.so
Joystick [0] : Unknown Joystick
SDLClient initialized.
Bound to Render.so
Lighting subsystem initialized
Rendering initialized
LoadMap: Entry
Failed to load 'Entry': Can't find file 'Entry'
Failed to load 'Level None.MyLevel': Can't find file 'Entry'
appError called:
Failed to enter Entry: Can't find file 'Entry'
Executing UObject::StaticShutdownAfterError
Executing USDLClient::ShutdownAfterError
Signal: SIGIOT [iot trap]
Aborting.
Exiting.
Name subsystem shut down
I tried using the v436 installer [Single CD] but still end up with this error.
I'm running a GeForce 4 MX440 w/ Nvidia 1.0-4363 drivers. The card and drivers run fine with the other Linux games, just not this one.

Any help please?

Seems it can't find the map named "Entry".
In my .loki/ut/System/UnrealTournament.ini it sez "map=Index.unr", that isn't the default tho.

Do you have Unreal Tournament Game of the Year Edition? I had the same problem and then realised what GOTY meant and got the other version

... hope this helps

Yes I do have Game Of The Year Edition, hence the 2 CD's [CD1 - Game / CD2 - Extras].
Figured the thing out now. For some reason the loki installer only decompresses a few maps and leaves the rest compressed in /install/path/to/ut/Maps.

I read somewhere that you had to decompress each map using ucc through a terminal:
ucc decompress /install/path/to/ut/Maps/CTF-Face.unr.uz
Then it extracts them to /home/username/.loki/ut/System/ which means you have to move them to /install/path/to/ut/Maps to play.

That's something I never, ever want to have to do that again because I couldnt get the multiple file extractor script's to work. However, good news is that performance is great & runs brilliant online.


Time to try installing UT2003 now, lmao.

Do you have a windows machine that you can just install Unreal Tournament. Then copy each directory to a compressed file. Next in LINUX uncompress them in your UT directory. I did this. I never need the CDs again to install in LINUX.

Sorry, that is assuming that the install directory is /opt/ut (as mine is)

I have the same problem, but mine persists; I decompressed all the maps with carpy's script (it works perfectly), and then moved'em all to the ut/Maps directory.
Finally, I tried to launch the game...

[sly@localhost UnrealTournament]$ ./ut
Unreal engine initialized
Bound to SDLDrv.so
Joystick [0] : Microsoft® Microsoft® SideWinder® Game Pad USB
Joystick has 10 buttons
Joystick has 2 axes
SDLClient initialized.
Bound to Render.so
Lighting subsystem initialized
Rendering initialized
LoadMap: Entry
appError called:
ReadFile beyond EOF 0+4/0
Executing UObject::StaticShutdownAfterError
Executing USDLClient::ShutdownAfterError
Signal: SIGIOT [iot trap]
Aborting.
Exiting.
Name subsystem shut down
[sly@localhost UnrealTournament]$

Please help me...

Talking One final (undocumented) step

Then you have to copy the Entry.unr to Entry and all should be well...


cd /opt/ut/Maps
cp Entry.unr Entry

ut

Hope this helps.

Where are these files living right now?
Make sure to delete any ".ut" directories in your home directory. These can get created automatically by running UT and can have invalid configuration causing failure even though the master install/config is correct...

I don't have any .ut directories, I had the .loki one and I removed it and then tried again to start the game... nothing:

My bad. You are right. I knew it was a "." one in your home dir. Forgot about the .loki directory first.

It looks like it's attempting to read beyond the end of the Entry map. How long is the Entry file?
