I installed the latest UT2004 patch and lost:
(a) my user info - assuming because of replace of some ini file
(b) my custom keyboard settings
(c) even after reputting these settings in, like using arrow keys to move, I
get into a game and can't move.
I suppose I'll reinstall UT2004 from scratch and see what happens but this
is ANNOYING.
Atari/Epic Games are you listening?
And hey isn't it kinda 1990's for you to give us these patches we have to
manually copy files from a folder to folders on our hard drive? What
happened to an executable patch? Is it because of fear of viri?
How hard is it to create an executable patch that does not overwrite my user
info/keyboard settings, etc?

Heh. Wrong group.

But always backup your System directory before installing a patch. At
the least, you should backup your UT2004 and User .ini files.

And FWIW, none of the patches are supposed to overwrite you .ini
files... it didn't overwrite mine, but caca occurs, so....
