the Unreal (Tournament) server guide is being worked, still.
You can find the current unfinished version here
(May of some use to some of you). Until our server guide is
finished however I can highly recommend you check The
the Preferences menu, then select the Input tab.
In this tab you will find settings to tweak your input device
Tick this setting if you intend to use a Joystick to
play the game, however mouse & keyboard is the best way to
play Unreal Tournament. It will improve performance slightly
if you Untick this
as well. Useful if you're on a low spec machine.

devices try Unticking this.
this setting to always use the mouse for aiming, changing
view. I’d highly recommend Ticking this for best
control of your view.
Smoothing. Tick this setting to enable mouse filtering. This will
average out mouse movements resulting in much smoother
scrolling. Untick this to disable the filtering.
I’d high recommend Ticking this.

Ticked your view will immediately re-centre upon
letting go of the mouse look key. When set to False the

Otherwise, Ticking this setting will automatically
slope your view back/forward when going up/down
Sensitivity. Setting this to higher values will
improve mouse responsiveness although will make more accurate
movement awkward due to the extra responsiveness. I’d
recommend leaving this set to the default unless you find your
mouse to be very slow to react to input.
Rocket Fire. Tick this setting to automatically launch a
rocket when you hit the fire button when using the Rocket
Launcher (obviously). As a side effect you lose the ability to
launch multiple, simultaneous rockets. Tick/Untick
this setting as suits your style of gameplay.
If you are using a mouse
(Which most of you will be) you can find out how to further
tweak that device in our Mouse
