  • Cannot start?

    Everytime i try to start the game i get this error message

    UT2004 Build UT2004_Build_[2004-03-03_02.42]

    OS: Windows XP 5.1 (Build: 2600)
    CPU: AuthenticAMD PentiumPro-class processor @ 1542 MHz with 511MB RAM
    Video: RADEON 9600 SERIES (6436)

    Failed to enter AlienSwarmStartup.ut2: Can't find file 'AlienSwarmStartup.ut2'

    History: UGameEngine::Init <- InitEngine

    I downloaded the non-umod edition (twice) and extracted it to the UT2004 folder (twice), but the same eror message everytime. do i need the patch for UT to play the game? because the patch breaks the game and causes a ridiculous amount of general protection faults. (see atari forums...!!!)

    Alien Swarm requires the 3204 patch.
    Nearly all men can stand adversity -- if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.

      If you started Alien Swarm without the 3204 patch, you'll need to install 3204, then delete your UT2004\AlienSwarm\System\AlienSwarm.ini file. Then relaunch Alien Swarm and all should be fine.
