Re: Running UT2004 on Windows 10

I wanna stress out, looking at the above post, never use v-sync if you don't want to have input lag.
It's the one option that I turn off by default on any game.

Running UT2004 on Windows 10

Post by N4rkoT1k » Mon 15. Jun 2020, 21:04

So.. perhaps you guys can help me to get UT2004 running on Win10

If I want to start UT2004.exe it states "An admin has blocked the execution of this app" (red windows message)
I have admin rights on my account of course and my first suspect is the smart screen filter

Any idea of what is going on? Thanks in advance!

Hi Narko! Great to see you again!

I wonder if it has to do with your installation path. Wormbo mentioned something like that to me when I had problems. Did you by any chance install your game under Program Files?

Hey Ema! :)

Thanks for the reply. I have looked into it and was able to solve it by doing the following (perhaps this might help other users too):

1) Activate hidden admin account on Windows 10
2) Switch to this admin account and install the game directly on C: partition (NOT IN PROGRAM FILES!!) as well as latest patch (e.g. by installing the ut2004 megapack)

This solved it and I am now able to play by using my default account (not the hidden admin account).
Works like a charm and I have also played some rounds on CEONSS a couple of days ago.

I am so bad after not playing for so long and got pwned by pretty much everyone :lol:

Cu soon again on the server perhaps ;)
