Default UT2004 Discs?
Reply With Quote


Hi all,

A few months back my old 2006 iMac croaked and took my UT with it. I lost my original discs in a move at some point. I miss playing a LOT and wonder if anyone knows of a source to buy UT? I am prepared to buy another old iMac in order to play (they're only a few hundred bucks) I know it sounds stupid and I've looked online for the game so this is a sort of last resort.

Thanks in advance
SlaughterU

I'm running off an old Windows CD even though I'm on an iMac. I downloaded a pirated Mac version on PirateBay and I had to enter the CD key in the package contents files. Follow these instructions but enter the key from your physical CD's case.

It seems that nothing matters for a CD key as long as its unique, I didnt think a PC one would work for Mac but for me it does.

The game now runs from my desktop so the disk now just sits in a box somewhere.

You can buy UT2004 from gog but you have to ask support for a genuine key. I wouldn't recommend buying Macs, they're not meant for gaming.

Thank you! Problem is I no longer have a physical disk or case, they were lost in a move.

I've had Macs for 20+ years, couple of decades of gaming with the Marathon series, Myth, Halo, UT2004. They suit my needs anyway.

Join this: https://discord.gg/QdZWKqQ
than scroll down and go to the chanal "downloads-newfixes" there you may get help, if not write in the channel "I need help"


You only need a legit key, whereever you get it from, and put it into the right place.
Than you can use every instalation of the game, regardless from where it comes.


Than join this: https://discord.gg/X4V8THM
and this: https://discord.gg/zZmapJG
too.

Maybe there are PC disks floating around on amazon or ebay?

But yeah, Mac isn't optimal for gaming but its done fine for me in that area. In creative fields their reliability and simplicity can't be beat and that's why I have them.

I bought my copy off Steam. I'm not a big fan of Steam, but here's a link if the other ways don't work for you:

Keep an eye on eBay. A Mac version recently sold for $8 + shipping.

And Macs are perfectly fine for games like UT2K4. It's a moot argument.

Keep in mind newer Macs with OSX MacOS Catalina will NOT run UT2004 natively. Previous version of OSX will.


You need a windows emulator on Catalina to do it (it works fine with Parallels).

Can you expand on this? I bought from gog, but the OMNI server has banned my IP. Who do I ask for a genuine key and how do I go about using it?
