So after a much too long break from UT2004 I decided to install it on my new windows 7 system. The install went fine and any singkeplayer or non online match played flawlessly. When I connect to an online game, right as I get in the match where it would say Click fire to join or click to switch players, it says receiving server state. The problem is that sometimes that while that message is displayed, the game is really funky. When I press Esc the menu does not display but If I moune over where the buttons would be that select sound is made but clicking the buttons does nothing. Also I can move around in spectator mode and go through anything in the map, walls and floors don't stop me. I cannot choose to spec a player but I can see them moving around, they all have the default skin. When it is this bad I cannot exit the game except by ending task in task manager. I have tried running UT in compatibility mode and that did not help at all.
One side question, in the server list all servers with the name UT2004 Server have N/A ping and I cannot any of them.
If you need any info from me please ask and any responses are appreciated.
