Hey all,

suddenly, after many lucky years of playing Urt, i have a problem. The Game starts, with no auth key registration, when i klick at any button (log in, setup, whatever ...) i got the following from the console (i changed some numbers by x):

Loading vm file vm/ui.qvm...
VM file ui compiled to 799053 bytes of code
ui loaded in 17183584 bytes on the hunk

Couldn't reopen D:\UrbanTerror_43\q3ut4\zUrT43_009.pk3


i think, the criticals are "The key file "authkey" doesn't exist. " (its definitively there)and "Couldn't reopen D:\UrbanTerror_43\q3ut4\zUrT43_009.pk3" (its there too)

since the last game I could play, my q3config.cfg has been changed, not by me. I dont know if this is usual. After that nothing do work anymore.
Anybody some suggestions I can do ...?? momentary server problem ?

p.s. I'm from germany, so i dont understand english 100 %

greetings Ulf

The authkey not existing shouldnt cause any problems (apart from you not being authed).

The fact that the game cannot open one of the game archives however is rather strange. It makes me suspect that there is some problem reading from the disk. Maybe its a antivirus thing or something.

Could you try to start the game and launch a local game via the console (e.g. [code]map ut4_abbey[/map])?

Also do run the UrT updater to have it check the games files.


Your q3config always changes when you run the game. The game automatically writes it back to disk with every other setting that has been configured (e.g. from your autoexec). Additional things you write into your q3config are not stored, only variables that already are in it can be configured there.
Sorry for my bad spelling - I am still asleep. :)

thx a lot Iye, Updater was my first idea too, but all ok.
but i think i did it.
I deleted the last downloaded map "ut4_whack-a-doodle_a3.pk3" and my UrT works again... why ever. That map was playable ... but however maybe better don't load it ...
