I'm new, and don't know how to play

Post by kungfuhungsu »

Hi guys, myself and a friend of mine have been searching for a new game to play, and would like to try this out! Thing is, I have never played UT, never mind modding it, so I have absolutely no idea how to get this mod going.

What do I have to download to start playing Monster Hunt?
How do I start playing Monster Hunt once i have those bits?

Thanks a heap =)



I see, I didn't know that each of those corresponding directories (maps, system etc) just had to go over the existing ones in the UT directory. Sorted now!

Welcome the the premier spot for anything Monster Hunt. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask away. There is an exceptional group of players here and anyone would be willing to help. Your site admin is Skillz and he is the best when it comes to helping you get sorted.

Jump on either of the servers, say "I'm new, what do I do" and you'll be well taken care of. If you want to practice, there is a large selection of maps available to you as a registered member. Simply download them, unzip, and place into the corresponding folder in your UT installation. It's not as much fun offline though, as some of the real fun is finding out "what's on the other side" by earning it and not cheating. There are still several spots on some maps I haven't been able to see because I can't reach them (poor jumping skills :meh: ) but sooner or later I'll earn them.

Have a great time and glad you joined!

Welcome, easiest way to get started is to just join a MH server. You'll automatically download everything you need and start playing right away.

Just get Unreal Tournament with the v436 patch. We run two servers. You can see them at the top of this page.

Hmm, I have a problem! Some of the maps won't load, on the map selection window, they have a black preview, and I can't actually play them. Does anyone know what I might be missing?

Map selection window where? You trying to play them locally? Some maps do not have a screen shot included with them, so it'll be a blank screen but they will still play. Does it crash your game when you try to play them?

Kungfu says they won't play, I guess that they might be missing files.. Does the screen give any detail on this?

Yes, sorry I should have mentioned, it says:

"Can't find file for package 'xxx'"



The maps are just from the map packs over on the download page. They ask for packages like "Invasion" and "cs_italy", but i don't know where to find these...

For some reason those packages are missing a ton of files, I honestly have no idea why. If you could be more specific on which map packs you downloaded, which maps you downloaded and the files it says are missing I can update the archives with the new files it's requesting.
