  • Playing back a demo?

    I recorded a demo of AS and I am not able to play it back through UT2004. It says it's missing all the AS files because they are in their own directory in the UT2004 folder. Is there any way, short of moving all the AS files to the normal UT folders, that I can play the demo back?

    Uhh. Yea. Start up Alien Swarm and play the demo there.

    Trying to play the demo in regular UT... That's not gonna work. Ever.
    Ah, to be a hero. Keeping such company...

        I don't have a UT2004/demos folder. Where to find it, or do I have to create it? Please tell me how to save a demo and see it.

          If you don't have one it means you haven't recorded any demos. Create the directory if you want to and put a demo that you've downloaded in there, or use "demorec filename" to record your own.

                That sounds like you have the wrong version of Alien Swarm. Have you got 1.1?

                  Or try going online (like joining an empty server) playing back the demo and see if UT/AS can download them automatically. I had missing packages problems too and that was the fix. I don’t think it was the same one but it’s still worth a try.

                  And remember, it’s just an uneducated guess of mine…

                  EDIT: I’m getting the feeling my guess was as uneducated as I thought. Browsing through a few threads I see that problem was about uadmin files. So like Carth said, make sure you got AS 1.1 and a fresh UT patch. Good luck!

                      I'll just add that if the server that the demo was recorded on had a mutator (i.e. Angel's servers have UAdmin mod), you will need this mutator. So Leo's suggestion makes sense, since by playing on Angel's server you would have the UAdmin mod in your cache. I am also just guessing here...
