    I started up Unreal Tournament 2004 for the first time in ages hoping to play online, and...nothing. No servers showing up, at all.
    Is this yet another Snow Leopard issue, or could it be that there are simply no servers running this game anymore?

    I guess I'd check your patch version. And check that you don't have any filters in your server browser. That game always had a lot of servers especially with all the mods and giant sniper maps.

    Well, it looks like I have the latest patches, and I switched off Firewall which was previously on, but i'm still getting the message 'your connection to UT2004 master server timed out'. It looks like filters don't even enter in to the equation..

    I can't even get to install it on 10.6.2 the installer keeps falling over.

    Any pointers?

    The master server went down for several days a couple of weeks ago, and it's been relatively unreliable lately. I usually have to hit refresh a couple of times before the timeout message goes away and the server list comes up.

    Unreal Tournament no longer working after 10.6.2

    I've had Unreal Tournament 2004 working flawlessly for months, but installing 10.6.2 has broken it. Now I can launch the program and make it to the starting screen, but selecting "Single Player" triggers a slow fade back to the Finder (usually without any sort of "Unexpectedly Quit" message.

    I'm currently up to date with my patches. Does anyone know if there are any fixes forthcoming either from MacSoft or Apple?

    UT2004 is running fine for me (just launched it 2 days ago). Found servers (not many with players but it did find them).
    This is on 10.6.2 hackintosh.

    Unreal Tournament no longer working after 10.6.2 -- Fix

    Sounds like this has been a problem for a lot of people around teh Internets (although VPrime proves that it isn't universal).

    I contacted Destineer support, and they came back with the following advice:

    "Try uninstalling the game, then delete the 'Unreal Tournament 2004' folder from /Users/<your user name>/Library/Application Support/ and then reinstall the game. After reinstalling the game, apply the 3362.9 update and the game should work properly."

    For us Mac users, "uninstalling" is high-fallutin' talk for "drag to the trash," of course. I can't find any programmatic uninstaller.

    I did this, and it worked for me. (You'll lose any single player game progress, etc.) Hope it works for others as well.

    Maybe I should also add that I just recently installed it.. That could be why it was working.

    Use Boot Camp

    My brother has Boot Camp and UT2004 (and later) installed.
