 Thank you for your interest and support for the Back2UO Mod for Call of Duty 2.

6.)	Contact Information

1.) Setup

 - Create a folder in your Call of Duty 2 Main Directory called ‘back2uo’.
 - Into this folder, copy in the following Back2Uo Mod Files:

 Back2Uo v.2.1 Files:
  - z_back2uo_2.1_client.iwd      
  - z_svr_back2uo_2.1.iwd       
  - localized_english_iw15.iwd     
  - localized_german_iw15.iwd    
  - back2uomod.cfg                      

  - To start the Server with the Back2Uo Mod you need this parameter:

 Server Parameter:
  +set fs_game back2uo +exec cod2server.cfg

   - To utilise your own Settings in the “back2uomod.cfg” you must link your own        
     “cod2server.cfg”. ( exec back2uomod.cfg )
   - If the settings or link does not take place with the Back2Uo config the Back2UO Mod
     will always start with the default Settings.
- It is Important that “localized_english_iw15.iwd” and “localized_german_iw15.iwd”
  are in the folder to enable every gamer to play independent of their game version,
  with respect to their corresponding sounds, graphics and texts in their language.

  - Feel free to use our predefined CoD 2 server Config.
  - If you use your own Config you MUST set these parameters in it:

  - set com_hunkMegs "512"
  - set g_logsync "1" (0=no log, 1=buffered, 2=continuous, 3=append)
  - set logfile "1"
  - set g_log "back2uo_mod.log"
  - Without these Commands you may experience performance problems.

      i.e the player aims Northwards, and the artillery appears in the South. 
   - Players under Spawn the Protection cannot be wounded by Artillery. 
   - The Artillery is not classed as friendly fire, thus with “0“ effect and

  - 100% corresponds to the maximum damage value the weapon or action causes. 
    If you set the percentage small, the smaller the damage.

3.) known Mod-Bugs 
 Red Compass Points (with Enemy Fire):
  - In Order to let the Red Points disappear showing Enemy Fire on the Compass, a 
    File with the name “compassping_enemyfiring “ in the “z_back2uo_2.1_client.iwd “ 
    in the    Order “Materials/“.
- This graphic file overwrites the original effect.
  - In Order to activate the Red Points on the compass again, the
     “z_back2uo_2.1_client.iwd “in the order “Materials/“  must removed or renamed. 
- The “*.iwd “ file can be opened and worked on easily with WinRar or WinZip. 

 Custom Maps:
  - Due to the use of its own Back2Uo MOD own custom scripts, models, sounds etc. 
    we cannot give a warranty  or guarantee that these will e compatible with this MOD.
  - As there are many custom multiplayer maps, with their own Scripts for map effects 
    etc these could lead to problems with the Back2Uo programming.
- It is also possible that some maps have too many models attached, and those
  combined with the Back2Uo Mod might exceed he maximum Model-Value of the 
  COD 2 Engine and generate the error “g_modelindex:overflow“ .

Weapon Strength Setup (Turrets):
 - Due to a problem in the CoD 2 engine sometimes there are issues with the 
   weapon strength for turrets.
