UT2004 Dedicated Server

Epic Games sends news that the dedicated server for Unreal Tournament 2004 is now available, just in time for the retail release of the multiplayer shooter sequel. Mirrors can be found on the Unreal Tournament Website. Here's the deal:
These files allow anyone to run a dedicated UT2004 server, even if they do not own a retail copy of UT2004. Once installed, it will occupy around 2.0 GB of disk space, significantly smaller than the 5.5GB required for a retail installation. Server admins wanting to advertise their server to the official master server list, and be included in UT2004 stats will require a dedicated server key. Go to http://unreal.epicgames.com/ut2004server/cdkey.php to generate a dedicated server key.

Spiffy do da day oh.

It's not like thousands of people are gonna download this.
And from what Cain from Cain's Lair is saying, this thing is a hog for CPU time. His max is 28 people, usually backs it down to 26.

Still waiting for my order to ship. I'm refreshing my EBGames order stat page every half hour. Still says open.
Yeah, I'm a UT2K4 nerd geek.

I ordered from Dell.com (oddly enough). I have a credit account there, and figured I'd use it.

I never did manage to find an OS X dedicated server for UT 2003 available for download anywhere. Maybe this time?

German UT Fans are on the ass-side of life once again: The german DVD version will be censored (green blood, no gibs), so I'll have to wait for a US or UK import.

I haven't signed up for this yet, but why exactly would they need to send you a Windows .reg file just to send you a CD key? Has anyone checked this out yet?

IIRC, they give you a key as well as a windows registry file, which you can use in lieu of entering in the key. This registry file is of course useless to those who run Linux.

You need all that space becuse of the ~100 maps that will be included. That's not even counting mods and third-party maps. I see there are already two quality Onslaught maps in the works:

Time to upgrade my HDD. Oh wait! I got two 80 gig Serial ATA drives in a RAID-0 set up with 110 gigs to spare

Who cares, when you can get a 200GB drive for $80 now? It's about time games started pushing beyond the typical 1-2GB of disk usage. 5.5GB is easily surpassed by a small movie, anime, or [decent-sized] MP3 collection.

Game installation sizes haven't kept up with disk sizes if you look back a bit. Wing Commander 2 w/ Speech Pack and Special Operations 1 and 2 was 26MB. Back then you were doing good with a 40MB hard drive! Or maybe a little later on, 150MB, which was really nice. Let's say you had a 150MB drive. So WC2 would take 26/150 = 17.3% of the drive. Now let's say you have a dinky little 40GB drive on your gaming PC of today. 17.3% of that is 7GB! 17.3% of a 200GB drive is 34GB!!

Games are supposed to push the envelope. As long as the space isn't wasted on stupid stuff, and there aren't 50,000 little files, they're on the right track IMO.

It makes me really sad to be the only one that thinks this is even more of a steaming pile than 2K3 was.


Either everyone else is easily turned, or I'm significantly more jaded than I thought I was. I don't know how, though, I thought Freedom Fighters was an outstandingly fun game. How can anyone that loved FF be more jaded than the next guy?

[decent-sized] MP3 collection

Decent sized? I'd think that to be on the small side... I have 60G or so of MP3's, ripped at alt-preset extreme from my CDs.

I have absolutely no issues with the size of the install... there's plenty of games that eat that much or more, particularly if you start talking about downloadable content.

As for the game itself -- Beemer, if you don't like it then don't play it. A lot of us do like it. Why must people who don't like something come in and whine? Shoo. Go play something you do enjoy and leave others to their preferences. What a dull world this would be if everyone liked the same damn things.

I'm gonna have to vote "jaded", dude...I wasn't expecting much out of this AT ALL until I played Onslaught...and with that, I plunked down the preorder.

It's still not the original UT (when is someone going to remake DM Morpheus?), but it's damn better than 2003...
