Please help! my wife cannot connect to HoF Evil's sniper

Post by a$']['®õ_{HoF} » Sun Jun 10, 2018 8:13 am

Platform xubutnu 16.10 x86 running under WINE

I copied the full directory of my game to her pc, she adjusted the configuration (nickname, some keybindings) and attempted to join the server. It will connect, and play the "welcome to hof server", she can move around the map, can fire her weapon, but it affects nothing. no wall marks ect. all other players were shown, but frozen. In my client i hear the notification noise of her joining, but there is no output to the console of the event. I cannot figure out what to call this to google it, i've tried

Check for links to places on YOUR PC that may not coincide with places on HER PC.
Check the ini files for these links.
(Note: it has been awhile since I dealt with this, so I cannot at this moment remember exactly what links)
I have seen this trouble quite a few times before when people "copy" a UT Install to anywhere other than its original place.
It can be fixed though. ;)
