1 Don't have Quake 3 Arena?No Problem! You can play Urban Terror using ioUrbanTerror, a free replacement for Q3A. It's not compatible with PunkBuster Anti-Cheat though, so you can't play on servers with PB enabled (there are almost none of these though).
Requirements: Urban Terror 4.1 Installer
Download and run the Urban Terror installer. There is no difference between the .zip or .exe packages and ioUrbanTerror is included in both. The .exe just makes it simpler for new users to install the Urban Terror files.
If you're using the .zip simply extract it (for example to: D:\Games\, so it becomes D:\Games\UrbanTerror\). Then right click the executable (ioUrbanTerror.exe or the linux/mac-equivalent) and create a shortcut to it and place it on your desktop. Linux users need to give the executable permission to be executed, by right-clicking it, going to properties and ticking the allow execution box.
For those using the .exe installer, simply run the installer. It will ask you where to install. Browse for it (for example: D:\Games\UrbanTerror\) on your hard-drive and then select Next to have the installer place the files & folders where they belong. That's it. You can now play on any server that does not have PunkBuster enabled. Set 'Punkbuster' to 'off' in the ingame server browser to automatically filter PB servers out.
2 Do have Quake 3 Arena?Then you can continue using Q3A with the Urban Terror mod and PunkBuster.
• Quake III Arena with unique cd-key
• Point Release 1.32 (or 1.32b or 1.32c, doesn't really matter)
• up-to-date PunkBuster
• Urban Terror 4.1 Installer
Make sure you have Quake3 and the Point Release installed (select yes when it asks you to install PunkBuster), have PunkBuster updated (use PBsetup from www.evenbalance.com) and have your cd-key entered into Quake3.
Download the Urban Terror Installer from one of the download links. There is no difference between the .zip or .exe packages. The .exe just makes it simpler for new users to install the Urban Terror files.
If you're using the .zip simply extract the 'q3ut4' folder into your Quake III Arena folder (Eg: D:\Games\Quake III Arena\q3ut4\). You will have to create an Urban Terror shortcut manually (see bottom of this FAQ).
For those using the .exe installer simply run the installer. It will ask you where to install, then choose your Quake III Arena folder and ignore the warning. Browse for it on your hard-drive (Eg: D:\Games\Quake III Arena\) and then select Next to have the installer place the files & folders where they belong. Remember to select your Quake III Arena folder, not the 'baseq3' folder within. When in the Urban Terror main menu, open the console with ~ and type: /pb_cl_enable to enable PunkBuster.
If you own Quake 3 Arena, you can also use ioUrbanTerror if you want. You do not need to download a big Urban Terror installer again. If you installed Urban Terror 4.1 to your quake3 folder, you can use ioUrbanTerror from there as well.
