Which mirror is best for me?

    The one that's geographically closest to you. If you live in Europe, choose one of the German mirrors, for instance. (If the data doesn't have to travel across an ocean, you'll usually get better download rates.)

When I double-click the UMod file, nothing happens (or: Explorer asks which program I want to open it with).

    Your .umod file association is probably broken; that is a common problem and nothing to worry about too much. Download the Registry Fixer and run it, and everything should be working again.

I can start the UMod installer, but it keeps complaining that I don't have Unreal Tournament installed.

    Assuming that you do have Unreal Tournament installed, that's just another common problem with UMods. Make a backup copy of Manifest.ini in your System directory and copy this replacement for it in its place. That'll make the UMod installer rightfully believe that you do have Unreal Tournament installed.

How do I start Jailbreak? Where's the launcher?

    There is no external launcher – Jailbreak is smoothly integrated into Unreal Tournament just like Deathmatch and Capture the Flag. Click "Start Practice Session," select "Jailbreak" from the "Game Type" drop-down list and click "Start."

I want more maps!

    Check our map database for a whole lot more maps that aren't bundled with Jailbreak III Gold.
