Installing Zip Files
Unless if the files are under correct folders which tells where to place them under the UT2004 directory
The other way is about knowing which extension goes where
.UKX -> Animations
.USX -> Static Meshes
.UCL & .U -> System
.UTX -> Textures
.UAX -> Sounds
These files are self installers under windows just like the Umods in older Unreal games, but if your game isn't well registered in the windows registry, they doesn't work, so to fix this you can use an Umod extractor or Umod Browser or fix the game's registry by editing the windows registry depending of your system
