UNREAL ANTHOLOGY USERS*** read this link from the Celtic Warriors website, http://www.celticwarriors.net/

set input U obj garbage
If you keep hitting U after setting this key while downloading a slow, stoppin download, it WILL make it regain some momentum : )

Here is a short, VERY BASIC and simple Begginners guide on how to enjoy your game to its maximum on any Infiltration server.
1st, USE unreal gold to play over oldunreal, recommended with the 227i patch. unreal 1 looks very bad. but if u must use unreal 1, patch it with 227 i.
on Oldunreal. The addy is http://www.oldunreal.com and goto the downloads section, then 227 new patch link, then choose the UnrealClassicPatch227i.zip or UnrealGoldPatch227I.zip. Its a simple umod, no unreal gold cd needed to install, just click and bam.
If you're running a server, You should always Use Oldunreal. Even if its patched with 227i, or 225f. It will be more compatible. 227i is the latest, has the newest updates, but not everyone uses this and will limit your player numbers. 225 is old and glitchy, but is the most compatible if u want any client to be able to join. You can also do this with a 227i oldunreal server. but you must allow old clients, and use 225f based maps/mods if u want to run it as a free play , all can connect server. the choice is up to you. I'd say the unreal servers are split 50% between 225 and 227. NEVER use a unreal gold with 226 F to RUN a SERVER. This is very bad lol. Or even for your client.
Oh yea, people have the games unreal or unreal gold on amazon.com or ebay.com for like 2 bucks new:)
TO MAKE YOUR GAME THE MOST ENJOYABLE as possible, follow these rules and youll be good lol. Unreals default keys are very hard, why suffer? Make it easier, more enjoyable, and quicker for you to play unreal using ONLY these keys, never the arrows!
**Redrum is a dangerous place. You must be prepared for battle when you enter the server. If you dont crouch, you can fall victim to a one shot headshot, as opposed to if you crouch, and you will take more body shots, 3 or 4 without armor*** lol
fire = left mouse button
alt fire = right mouse button
forward = W
back = S
strafe left = A (also used to move left)
strafe right = D (also used for move right)
jump = Spacebar
crouch = Ctrl
throwweapon = Q
activate item = middlemouse button
previous weapon = mousewheel up
next weapon = mousewheel down
previous item = E
talk = t
team talk = r
feign death = f
Toggle Behindview = B
Turn Left = USELESS, use A which is strafe left to 'turn' left
Turn Right = USELESS, use D which is strafe right or 'turn' right LOL
Old style 227 menu: hit escape, goto options, at the bottom youll see something like auto switch weapons, set it accordingly.
Gold style 227 (UMenu) users: hit escape, go up to options, then weapons, make sure auto switch weapons is UN checked.
Any other clients, not sure really. if you have this info for unreal gold no patch and oldunreal 225f let me know lol. tab and type neverswitchonpickup 1 works, but I hear only for one map? Never got to test that one.
infiltration reload = z
serpentine reload = x
infiltration switchweapon mode = v
This one is for advanced users, who want to get precision accuracy goin with their mouse.
**In your Windows mouse settings, Go in the pointer options tab, look for pointer speed, and have that about 40%.
Maybe even experiment with your pointer speed.
You will aim better!
Don't forget your Unreal and Windows mouse settings are different, you need to tweak these both and find the best, most accurate way for you. The Windows settings are usually in the control panel, or properties on the desktop. You're looking for mouse pointers, mouse settings
The best type of a mouse is a standard, 2 medium sized one with 2 buttons, with a mousewheel/mousebutton, with a wire. optical or mouseball, your choice. :) My opinion is I like the old ones for Unreal.
The only thing that should be activated is the mouselook, and ur mouse sensitivity in INPUT. max smoothing makes it a lil wild i think.
This is also another opinion of mine, WIRELESS MICE ARE GARBAGE FOR GAMES.
IN YOUR Video settings, TURN GUI MOUSE SPEED ALL THE WAY OFF
In INPUT in your preferences, the only boxes that should be checked are MOUSELOOK. I usually use a mouse setting not too wild, or too hard to move, try 4.00
I use 5.0
Now, goto the GAME tab in your preferences, VIEW BOB should be all the way down, enable dodging also.
A COUPLE CODES TO KNOW
When youre in game, press tab and type this
(example, press tab and type SET INPUT Q THROWWEAPON then hit enter (not case sensitive)
set input q throwweapon <------------throws your weapon
set input v button bextra2 <--------bextra2 will make your shotgun semiautomatic in inf deathmatch & standoff, also will scope in your Robar & PSG Rifle farther
set input z button bextra1 <----------bextra1 is your infiltration reload
set input x button bextra3 <------bextra3 is your serpentine reload
CACHE or downloaded files:
If you use 227, disregard this because your cache is already set to 0. Very clever :)
By default, unreal deletes all the files you downloaded on unreal every 30 days. DAMN! Do you want to reduce your download time drastically? These are configuration settings.
the easiest way to find ur unreal.ini - in unreal, goto options, then advanced options, advanced, file system, youll see purgecachedays. change the number to 0 and restart your game. Done.
Another way of finding it : Go into your unreal/system or unreal gold/ system folder, find Unreal.ini, theres only a few files named unreal, so look for the text file INI that says [URL] at the top,
once you're in there, the 3rd paragraph down it says [Core.System], under that it says Purgecachedays=30, change this number to 0. Save and restart game. THERE YOU GO.
*NOTE* SAVE your cache folder everytime you reinstall, or uninstall, even less download time :) mine is now 13 GB lol!!!
A FEW KEYS TO KNOW:
The wavy button, on your left side of your keyboard, or the tilde button, is your console where you read your messages, or see death messages, etc.
F1 on your keyboard will bring up your score, map name, author, etc.
F9 will take a screen shot and save it to a folder named "Screenshots" in your unreal system folder. If you're pre 227, The unreal system folder somewhere. Example theyre usually along the line of Shot001
F11 will turn your brightness up. **********IMPORTANT********
dont forget your monitors brightness also. lol....
Unzip the folder to your desktop, using winzip or 7zip, then do this:
-exit your game
-add the utxs to your unreal textures folder
-add the ints to your unreal system folder
-start your game up, goto player set up, choose your skin and enter server.
*NOTE* The skins have to be installed on the server for them to work, obviously :)
Take them out of the folder 1st, do not drop the folder into the folder lol!
UNREAL GOLD STYLE MENU/CONSOLE FOR 227 USERS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Goto OPTIONS, THEN ADVANCED options, then goto drivers, goto console, youll see a drop down box, select UMenu. restart your game. Now, you have the Unreal Gold style browser with 227, amazing!
Direct 3D, Open GL or Software Rendering?
Too high of a resolution may lag your game if you dont have a superb PC, so watch that. I personally use, and don't mind 800x600. You'll see this in your Audio/Video settings under Preferences.
225/227 users goto OPTIONS, advanced options, DRIVERS, then goto GAME RENDER DEVICE, choose either Direct 3D 9, Direct 3D8 7. whatever the highest one is you have, Open GL, or Software Rendering, whichever works for you. I think Direct 3d looks the best.
*Note* if you're on a pc that lags when you play, you can turn down the color to 16 bits in ur video settings. Itll make it smoother definitely, even better if you use a reasonable video resolution, 800 x 600
If you ever get a MISMATCH, try restarting your game and try joining. If it still doesn't work, you have the file installed, and simply find it in your unreal folders, either maps, textures, sounds, music, or system itll be in. It will say Blah version mismatch, something like that, you just locate the file, alphabetical order? :)
If you ever get stuck, press tab and type suicide
Also, Pre 227 users if you ever see the bunch of white numbers and codes scrolling down your screen, hit the letter O once on your keyboard :)
Thats about it, I hope this poorly written Redrum Deathmatches Guide was helpful for you! Hopefully I'll see you on my server, lets fill it up to 25, the max capacity! :)
