i want to know if there is a way to play the game without the first disk(disk one), because my disk is getting scratched up, and i cant burn it
Yes there is, there are 2 ways, legal ones that is, the others we wont discuss cause well...THERE ILLEGAL. OK #1 is to use the disk to boot the game and just simply take the disk outta the drive after it boots, cause thats all its used for any way, #2 wait until the new patch gets here, which was rumored on planetunreal to remove the cd check..
That is all, and P.S. I dont recommend any other ways like downloading any 3rd party hacks, its just not worth the risk!!!
the new patch 2225 does remove the cd check!!!
I had to return my game twice because my CD drive didn't seem to want to read the cd. It would spin forever without really getting anywhere. Even now, it takes about 20 seconds or so of spinning before it can actually read the CD.
Anyhow, install ut2003 and only patch 2225. This patch removes the cd check and fixes lots of stuff. It is an official patch and you can get it here:
