I'm considering playing Unreal Tournament 2004 online, but I'm just wondering if people can hack my computer while I'm playing. Thanks.

As long as you have an up to date firewall and all patches installed you should be safe enough. I play the original UT online all the time and i've never been hacked.

there has never been a documented case of a "player" being hacked just because they were playing online. more likely is to encounter a player using a "hack" to gain an advantage.

Hi your not really meant to have a Firewall whilst playing UT2004 as sometimes it may disconnect you and stop you from going on Any servers

not true nvidiadude. firewalls such as what comes with sp2 works just fine. you may have to configue the firewall a bit to make it work properly.
