So you are saying that you install as root into ~/.ut2004. Is this root's 
homedir or your own homedir? Either way it just doesn't make sense. Let me 
guess: you run the game as root as well? And you chmod 777 all kinds of 
files when you can't get something to work?

Please tell me why you don't just into as yourself into your own homedir? 
Alternatively, you could create something like /usr/local/games and let it 
be owned by you (or some games group and then become a member of this). 
This way you don't need root for anything - and certainly not for running 
the game!

Depending on what you are dealing with, of course. And depending on how you 
practice security.
