UT2 Backup and Powerpack error recovery

Recommended Posts


Just went thru the issue with installing powerpack for UT2.


Disclaimer: Thsi will only work if you opted to backup your data base when installing powerpack.



1. Make sure you download the proper Powerpack Version for you UT2 Schedule

(There are two different downloads, read the download page thoroughly)


2. When installing, Make sure you opt to backup your original or latest UT2 Database files.. There are three.. Powerpack will do that if you opt to.


3. Most likely, Like I did, you will get a database error when trying to run UT2 again and as I, will swear every available word you can and scramble for help after all the hard work you put in to customizing the original UT2 Database....


4. If you have Windows 7, Most likely you may have a restore point... "You Must Restart In safemode to properly use restore to a previous point"


5. If you have Windows 10, Most likely you don't have restore point option on... You are screwed.

However.. If you do, Follow these steps...

a. Hold the shift key while clicking on restart..

b. Click on troubleshooting

c. Click on restore options

d. Click Restore data

e. Pick a previous Install

The restore will take a little bit and reboot your computer.

Windows 10 automatically runs restore in Safe mode....

It will reboot


The following step can be performed without the Restore point feature but I haven't tried it....

yet.... If it works, Yous should ignore steps 1-5 and do only 6.


6. Go to C:\Root\User account\AppData\Roaming\Flight One Software\Ultimate Traffic 2\Backups\

Copy the the UT2_Weekly and Official to C:\Root\User account\AppData\Roaming\Flight One Software\Ultimate Traffic 2\Databases\ overwriting the corrupt ones

Copy the Interface one to  C:\Root\User account\AppData\Roaming\Flight One Software\Ultimate Traffic 2\ overwriting the corrupt one


UT2 should start normally as it did for me.


Good Luck!
