Unreal Tournament Web Page Patches - XMaps - Map Randomizer - Add-Ons - Beta Files - Sites

Here are the current patches and files for Unreal Tournament. If you get the chance, install your chosen patch after installing Unreal Tournament, but before running it for the first time. Version 402 (and later) include fixes for the detection of graphics cards during the first 'run'.

A quick note regarding the 405b patch and DirectInput ... you may have noticed the loss of support for the middle mouse button with DirectInput enabled. Installing IntelliPoint 3.1 solves this problem.

There have been a lot of reports of Direct3D performance problems with some of the patches, so I'm adding all the available Direct3D DLLs to the Beta files section below. For more information, check Epic's Direct3D Troubleshooting page.

As all UT versions since 400 have been network compatible, there's not mileage making all the different patches available from the same page. So, I've reduced the list of patches to the latest version and its predecessor (just in case :-). Sunsite don't seem to mirror the files any longer (if anyone finds an FTP URL for Sunsite, please let me know).

Beta Files

These are all the Direct3D and OpenGL DLL files published by Epic - some are from official patched versions of UT, some are beta. To 'install' any of the files, back up the original files (d3ddrv.dll and/or opengldrv.dll) from your Unreal\System directory and replace it/them with the file(s) in the Zip. Check Epic's Direct3D Troubleshooting page for their analysis of Direct3D issues with different video cards.
