  • Problem when starting up

    This is the error I receive when I try to start up Alien Swarm-
    UT2004 Build UT2004_Build_[2004-03-03_02.42]

    OS: Windows XP 5.1 (Build: 2600)
    CPU: GenuineIntel Unknown processor @ 1998 MHz with 1023MB RAM
    Video: RADEON 9800 XT (6430)

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

    History: UGameEngine::Init <- InitEngine

    It happens when I start it from community -- user mods in UT2k4 and when I run the .exe file, so neither start option works. When I try to run it, the loading screen appears for a few seconds and then the above message appears. I have the mod un-rar'ed to C:/ut2004. I've tried installing it a couple times through the .rar, but never with the umod installer. Any help is appreciated.

    Looks like your missing that map file.

      It's in the alienswarm/maps directory. I already checked to see if it is there. I also copied it to the system directory just in case. Didn't work.

        You aren't missing the map. You forgot to patch to version 3204.

        Patch ut2004, then delete AlienSwarm.ini and restart the game.

          I'm moving this to the brand new Alien Swarm Tech Help forum.
