Install Old TO Mod Versions

This is a guide on how to install a free version of UT99 that can be used to play all the old SWAT and TO mod versions.

Follow all steps of the guide before starting the "UT99 Trial Demo" for the first time.

1. Unreal Tournament Trial Demo

The official UT99 Trial Demo is an old demo from back in the day that would include the full game but only allows you to play for a certain time.

2. UT Patch v436 NoDelta

This official patch updates the trial demo to a full UT99 installation. Make sure to not run the Trial Demo before installing this patch.

3. UT99 Bonus Packs

Some of the SWAT or TO maps might require files from these bonus packs that are included in the UT99 GOTY edition but not in the Trial Demo.


4. Update The OpenGL Renderer

Copy an updated OpenGL Renderer into the UT99 System folder.

5. Start UT And Close It

Start the Demo and make sure in the first startup screen to select the OpenGL Renderer.
Else you can also select it afterwards from inside the Video settings in the Preferences menu.

6. Set a FrameRateLimit

Make sure to set a FPS limit or the game won't run properly.
Information and instructions can be read on the Renderers & Frame Limit guide.

7. Backup The UnrealTournament Folder

If you want to test multiple SWAT or TO Mod versions it is smart to make a backup/copy of your UT99 folder.
This way you always have a clean base to install any particular version of the mods.

8. Install SWAT/TO Mod

You can find all the SWAT Mod and Tactical Ops Mod downloads in the Client & Patches page in the File Archive.
