    Multiplayer maps disappear offline?

    Hi all,

    Bought UT2004 because a friend runs his own server, and was playing there last night. Between matches, my computer would download the next map -- modded sniper-only maps, in which you're in a giant room (kitchen, bathroom, shed, games room, etc.) Low gravity, extra jumping, etc.

    I'm wondering where they are now! I tried doing a file search for part of their names, but can't find them anywhere. I'd like to keep playing these maps offline to explore them a bit and test my skills with bots.

    Where are the maps the computer auto-downloads for online games?

    Why can't I find and slot them into "Instant Action" Deathmatches?

    I found this aswell. I think you only download half of it or something like that which only lets you play it when you join a server. You'll have to search on google or something for a full download.

      The downloaded maps go into the UT200x\Cache folder. The easiest way to convert them to permanent maps is a cache cleaner. In this thread are links for two cache cleaners. You can find other links by entering cache cleaner in the search field.

          PERFECT!

          Mods -- somebody should sticky that cache-saving thread!

                  True 'nuff. Could you maybe put a descriptor after the cache heading, though? As a noob, I was looking for "online maps" and "downloading maps" and "play maps," etc. but had no idea that I should be investigating the cache.

                  Thanks!

                    Perhaps you should try and PM -=SR=-Killer himself and ask what he thinks about adding a note or changing the description. He´s maintaining that list, so you´d have to discuss that with him.
