Mars Wars

Mars Wars 3 is an Unreal Tournament 2004 modification to remake the classic title, Red Faction. It's a first person shooter, played in gametypes such as DM, CTF, RailArena and many more. Main focus is the gameplay. We're trying as hard as we can to give you the perfect gameflow you're expecting in a high quality mod such as Mars Wars.

The newest version of Mars Wars puts everything onto the next level in MWs era. Online play is much more stable and weapons are absolutely lag-free! In Mars Wars you can expect to experience one of the best FPS-multiplayer experiences ever seen in a mod.

Make no mistake, this mod will be different from other UT2004 mods.
Online- and offline play against fully functional bots!

I've installed this in the past with the Steam version of UT2004. When I try to run it, I get an error that says that my CD Key is invalid. What should I do?

I know it comes a bit late, but
please RED-FROG, can you at least fix the third-person view and the deathcam? This is one of my favorite UT2004 mods and you have done an amazing work so far, so thank you and your team for creating such an epic master piece which I still enjoy to play :) .
I don't want to force you to work on this and I know you said that you didn't get around the new update and I accept it.
It just feels so unfinished with these cam-bugs.
Anyway I hope you can find the time to finish it just for the old times. If not, it will be ok too and I will accept that ^^

have you managed to resolve the problem yet?
I became a little rusty when it comes to these things, can't really give a correct answer offhand yet.

I will be installing the resource files later today (first I go to sleep) and check what the problem might be.
I'll also be checking the recent changes I've done in the patch I've never released. If there were any.

It is amazing this site still has 43 visitors today. I hope those were not only google bots though. :p

Greetings and take care everyone
