If you used the automatic installer, simply double-click the "UTXMP for UT2004" shortcut on your desktop or browse to UTXMP -> UTXMP for UT2004 on the Windows start menu.
If you used the manual multi-platform .zip archive, you will need to run UT2004 with the parameter -mod=UTXMP. To do this under Windows, simply create a shortcut to UT2004 on your desktop, right click on it and select "Properties", then select the "Shortcut" tab. simply add " -mod=UTXMP" at the end of whatever's in the "Target" box as shown in this screenshot. Remember to leave a space between "UT2004.exe" and "-mod=UTXMP"!
Of course, you can always launch UTXMP by selecting it under the "User Mods " section of the "Community" menu at the UT2004 main menu.
To join a multiplayer server and start playing immediately, simply start UTXMP and select "Join Game" at the main menu. From there, select "Internet" to join an online game or "LAN" to join a game on your local network. Simply double-click a server to join it.
If you want to host a server, simply select "Host Game" from the main menu, select a map and configure server options. Then press either "Listen" to start a listen server (play at the same time as hosting) or "Dedicated" to start a dedicated server (host a server without playing).
Offline bot support is experimental in this version of UTXMP. We recommend playing online for the best gaming experience.
