make sure you have installed it the way you are meant to , by which i mean have a ut2004/deathball/ directory, as per the intructions.

Ensure you DO NOT have any deathball files in the ut2004/system directory, as these will over-write the /ut2004/deathball/system/ ones.

I had the same error because of the above problem.

dont worry this is just a beta anyway, its probably best to wait till a final version anyway, id imagain it will be alot more user friendly

1) download deathball19b.zip

2) download db20betapart1.zip

3) download db20betapart2.zip

4) extract deathball19b.zip to x:\...\ut2004\deathball

5) extract db20betapart1.zip to x:\...\ut2004

6) extract db20betapart2.zip to x:\...\ut2004

7) run the "play deathball.cmd" in x:\...\ut2004\deathball
basically all this does is check whether
x:\...\ut2004\deathball\system\deathball.u
x:\...\ut2004\deathball\system\deathballai.u
and x:\...\ut2004\deathball\system\deathball_rc.u exists, then copies x:\...\ut2004\deathball\system\deathball.u to x:\...\ut2004\system\deathball.u

8) deathball.u should have been copied over to x:\...\ut2004\system correctly, in future you dont need to run that file again unless you have installed another beta patch. if you want to play db without the cmd, just create a shortcut to ut2004 pointing to
x:\...\ut2004\system\ut2004.exe -mod=deathball

9) run shortcut =)

note, running ut2004 with -mod uses its own user.ini, namely deathballuser.ini in x:\...\ut2004\deathball\system\
just copy your existing user.ini over it \o/

Really?

i downloaded v1,9b and installed to
c:\UT200403

Evidently not.

Chick's guide is good. Follow it to the word (make sure you start with a clean install, having removed all the db stuff you have put there aleady) and you should be sorted.

Realistically, this is a very very buggy test release of deathball. If you do get it working, don't use it as a judge of what the full game will be like.

some servers still have old beta's as far as i know, so if you have the newest you may get a mismatch

ps. i'd say it's best to wait for a full version anyway, it's buggy atm and not many people are playing the 2k4 beta anyway
