> Unreal Anthology patches
Anthology Gold patch 1.0
Unreal Anthology was found to be not compatible with the current Unreal (225) servers. This community-made patch from the CelticWarriors clan replaces the mismatching files with the original versions from Unreal Gold. Install this patch to be able to connect to all Unreal 225 servers and Gold servers without version conflicts.
> General patches / updates
Unreal patch 226 final
226f adds sound fixes and 3d sound, along with fixes to the d3d renderer. Some 226f servers have strange issues about some effects which are not working. Clients of all versions except GOLD can join 226f servers. 226f not recommended for servers, NEVER USE FOR EDITING MAPS.
Unreal Gold weblinks patch
Fixes the start menu web links
Unreal patch 226a
Non-official beta of 226f which seems to fix some problems in D3D but horrible mipmapping problem. Fixes 3D-Sound (you can use the Sound dll to fix 225, it works!) NEVER USE THIS TO EDIT MAPS!
Unreal Patch 225f
225f is the most commonly used "good for all" version both as server and game machine. Voodoo card players will most likely use this version for best stability and performance.
Update: There is a Glide Wrapper available, which allows GeForce and Radeon cards to run Glide games. Just install it and put 225 back on choose 3dfx card when it asks!
Unreal Patch 224v
224v makes an excellent server. For gaming only recommended together with Smirftsch's OpenGL patch. Some system files don't work in 224 though.
UScript writers: Do not create switch() / case statements with strings as the dependent argument! This will work fine on 225f and later but certainly crashes 224 engines.
KNOWN BUG: If you play with 224 and login as administrator to a server you sometimes cause the server to PAUSE once you exit, so you should go back without logging in as administrator to see if your server is still running and not paused.
SERVER PERFORMANCE: It is a simple fact that 224 servers do perform better than 225f. Especially on low-end servers you will notice less lag and/or hitches if the server is 224. The performance gain on ultra high speed servers (P4 1 GIG Ram etc...) is questionable, a real difference has so far only been noted on machines which work at their limits or which are generally slower (P-II ...)
Return to NaPali patch 226B
226b RtNaPali is GOLD for Return To NaPali and commonly used for the mission pack. It has the same problems as normal 226f concerning networking insecurities and incompatibilities, but as a gaming machine, you CAN join normal 225f servers with this one. Hosting public servers with this version is not recommended and NEVER USE THIS TO EDIT MAPS!
> Unreal Editor patch
Unreal Editor fix 4
Fixes several problems with UnrealED. It also includes the required DLL files, so if your Unreal Editor does not start because of a missing DLL file, install this to fix it.


Old patches (Not recommended for general use)

 

These patches are NOT recommended anymore. You can NOT use them to play online, but they are available for special purposes. Release notes can be found here.

Unreal patch 225e
Old beta patch dug up by Leo(T.C.K.)
"This is a test version incorporating all of the latest server-side stability and performance improvements. It's backwards compatible with Unreal 224 clients. If you're running a 224 server and are experiencing performance or stability problems, please upgrade. If you experience any server problems or server crashes with 225, please email your Unreal.log file to unreal225@epicgames.com so we can investigate the problems. The results on our test server here at Epic indicate that this version is significantly faster (i.e. supports more players) than 224, and is more stable but I don't expect it to be perfect, because I rewrote about a thousand lines of server code to improve performance, and there will probably be some bugs to shake out. Only download this if you are running an Unreal server. The general Unreal 225 patch for everybody including users will be available in a few days."

Unreal Patch 225a
225a is a very uncommon alpha version of 225, released shortly after 224v. It breaks compatibility with many Unreal servers nowadays, because the most anti-cheat tools recognise it as possible cheat.

Original description:
"A 225A patch for internal beta testing has been leaked. It is network compatible with 224. It is not ready for general release. It is 33 megs because it has not yet been delta compressed. The final 225 patch will be out soon and will fix server stability and cpu usage problems in 224. Again, 225A has not been released by Epic and is not supported by Epic. You are advised against using this patch as it is not ready for public consumption."
