what files do i need to copy to transfer all my single player progress +
settings etc to another computer? is it just the saves folder or is anything
else needed?

also, all autodownloaded maps and other content seems to get stored in the
Cache folder, so I'll copy that as well, but I was wondering if the contents
of the Cache folder get kept indefinetly or if it has a maximum size or gets
emptied automatically after a time. Anyone know?

cheers.

Just copy over the entire " C:\Unreal Tournament " directory to your new
place :)

The saves folder and any .ini files you have modified. It might be easiest
just to copy every .ini file.

Use a proper cache manager to convert those cached items into real
maps, textures, etc. and save them in your game tree.

UT right? and not UT2004? For UT I would copy all of the .ini
files from the system directory *EXCEPT* one called manifest.ini
because if you copy it over to a different install the game will
think that there are files installed that are not or the opposite and
there will be files installed that are not installed and probably
cause you to have to reinstall. In any event, make a backup
copy of anything that will get overwritten first to be safe.

I would use Cache Cleaner3 first to correctly rename the files and
automatically place them in the correct folders. Yes the cache
folder purges every 30 days by default but you can change that
setting from within Cache Cleaner. The setting is in one of
the .ini files to change the cache purge time.
