Try this:

Open your C: drive
Open your Unreal Tournament folder
Open your System folder
Make a copy of your User.ini file
Open your original User.ini file
Click once on the empty line right above the [Engine.Input] section
Go up to the file menu and click edit
Click Find...
Type mutate into the box and click find next
Click it again until it finds what you need or it says "Cannot find Mutate""

Let me know what happened!
~Peace~

WELL, in the mean time what happened was THIS:

I went onto Hook's redeemer server. I got blown up a lot. Because I was looking at the menu I saw when I got there. I'd seen it somewhere else today, and clicked on "set/save" expecting it to open something to set mapvote and then save, but it just closed the window. SO this time I hit the key I wanted to use, the list moved down to that key and highlighted it, so I hit set/save and now mapvote works when I want it to. :lol:

SO much easier than typing in a lot of stuff! :mrgreen:

I have posted some threads at Hooks place, covering all the main issues and giving links to the original sites.
http://hooksutplace.freeforums.org/unre ... -f104.html

Post 1 is mostly a checklist aimed at making sure you start with everything, or getting a pre-436 updated to the GOTY standard.
There are updates for 2 extra GOTY mods ChaosUT and Rocket Arena. You are advised to update. (Herms server uses the updated Chaos).

:arrow: Everyone needs the patches for the bonus packs, at the bottom.

Under them is a selection of options for laptop owners that have problems with variable speed CPUs.
Often you don't need them if you set your power profile to "maximum".
It is good practice for all users to do this during install, as UT records the CPU speed it sees at that point.
The installer does not use much CPU so the speed is always lower than when you play the game.

Post 2 contains all the various engine updates and patches.
Here you will find the newer renderers from Oldunreal. These fix some issues with Chris Dohnal's versions, and will be the code-base for the next UT-SDK renderers.
The new audio renderers also add new features and higher quality, and more accurate positioning.
These renderers are as "official" as you will get.

:idea: This brings me to another issue.
Like me you are using an ATI chip. Due to an issue with the ATI OpenGL driver, it does not use the graphics RAM with UT.
For fastest gaming you need to use the DirectX9 or 10 renderers.
NOTE: All renderers defaults are set for maximum compatibility.
You need to change them to make UT look and perform best. Using Raynors guide to tweaking UT (on the page), will help you set everything.

Post 3 is all the extras like the Xconsole and Xbrowser replacements (I agree, I can't imagine UT with the basic console!).
This section also contains many other fixes or replacements for various UT engine and GUI elements.

Finaly, if you run a UMOD installer and does not see you UT folder, you can just paste or type the location in the window. It often happens, but is never a problem.

Well, let's hope that I can get it down once more. I no longer recall why I had to reinstall this game before my drive D failed and took all my games with it. But I have made some room on my C drive, and plan to reinstall UT99. It will be a small install. No fancy textures or settings will be used.

I have found a backup cd with lots of UT stuff on it, such as the 436 patch, the bonus packs 1, 2, and 4, as well as one called the "Innoxx pack".

Wasn't it bonus pack #2 that was the "bad" one? Or was it #3? And what is that Innoxx pack?
And speaking of the 436 patch, does it go in before, or after I install the bonus packs?

Apparently I was wise enough to save many of the maps I had spent so much time downloading. I have three folders of UT (mostly DM) maps, as well as a folder called Schwantz maps, and one called Fatz clan maps.

So if anyone needs or wants any of the older UT maps that may be hard to find now, or the ones from the Fatz clan or that Mr Schwantz used on his server, let me know and I'll provide a list of what I have backed up to cd. :)

p.s.
A working link to X console would be appreciated.

Also a copy of the set of crosshairs made up by a player called Za Ghost. His set had a dot within a circle which was similar to the one that you could use in UT2k4, only smaller. I liked that crosshair a lot, and would like to get my hands on it once more.

Bonus Pack 2 is bad. Don't install it. More on this later I hope. Good luck. Inoxx pack is Bonus Pack 3 or 4.

I found the crosshair pack tonight. Funny that the page didn't come up last time I googled it.

The pack is called ZaGhost-X It's right at the top of the list on the "files" page. Instructions for installation and UT user ini modifying is on the "adding crosshairs" page of the website.

http://www.accesswave.ca/~seburges/

X Console also gave me a break and let me find it tonight:

http://www.unrealize.co.uk/index.php?xconsole

Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page for the link to download from. :)

Okay...... I have finally installed the game, patched it, put in the bonus packs, and installed and patched monster hunt.

However I get this message when I try to look under the Deathmatch, Monster Hunt, or other tabs except "UTservers": "Master Server could not be resolved".

So, with the changes to the master server hosting or whatever it was, is the only tab that is supported now the "UTservers" tab? Or is there a fix I am unaware of? :?

I also had trouble binding map vote with the "LA 13" version. The usual way under the config tab does not work. However after playing on Hook's server a couple of times tonight, I was inspired to figure out a way that worked. I clicked on a line called 'unknown' on that opening screen you first see when logging on to Hook's, and hit the tab key, which is my usual choice for map vote in UT99. Then I clicked on "set/save" and it worked! Thanks Hook! :D

(Copy what he has done onto your server too, Herm. :wink: )

As long as GameSpy is gone you don't need any MH related file and neither any patch, look into Hook's player tweaks and see how to get MH TAB using only UT's native browsing capabilities.

This is a way to prevent any MH related mismatch, using only CACHE.

Shortly, this topic might help

Someone need only mention that new master server browser thing that that Gott made. It rules and finds everything. I now use it in place of EAVYServerBrowser search.

I have attached it. It rules!

Hey Nelsona, that's a very clever and very nice solution. Thank you for going to all that trouble for us. :) 8)

Ah I see you jumped in just as I was posting here Herm. Thanks for that new server browser add on too. :D

XBrowser helps indeed but I removed it.
Response:
I was tweaking UT for showing me MonsterHuntArena, Survival, EcoopGame2, TeamMonsterHunt (if anyone will ever fix this), Siege, and more options are open...
Hint: I'm using my own News menu in purpose to check server's functionality + map data for MapVote's info TAB.
