The Dead Cat Special Weapons Invasion maps were created for individual use and for network play on dedicated servers. They are designed expressly for the UT2K3 Invasion game mode. All six of these levels are copyrighted by Epic Games and Toonces T. Cat, Balefire, and Hobi-Wan. They may not be used for any purpose other than game-play without the express consent of the copyright holders.
Each map has ten additional weapons built in that are usually not a part of "Normal Weapons" game-play. These include: the Helios Rifle, a Colt Peacemaker, an MP5 with Grenade Launcher, a Benneli Shotgun, the Fyrian Cannon, the PIC...or Personal Ion Cannon, Sentinel Deployer...which places either floor or ceiling mounted Sentry Guns much like those from the film Aliens, the Noisy Cricket from Men in Black. and the Sniper Rifle from the original Unreal Tournament...Two of the levels also contain a Super Shock Rifle.
There are no known weapon bugs.
The weapons alternate with the following keys:
0 = Redeemer, Ion Painter, PIC, Sentinel Deployer 1 = Shield Gun 2 = Assault Rifle 3 = Bio Rifle 4 = Shock Rifle, Super Shock Rifle, Colt Peacemaker 5 = Link Gun 6 = Minigun, Fyrian Cannon, MP5 7 = Flak Cannon, FireChucker, Noisy Cricket 8 = Rocket Launcher, Benneli Shotgun 9 = Lightning Gun, UT99 Sniper Rifle, Helios
If you re-bind any of the standard UT2003 weapons to another key the special weapons, as listed above, will also move to the new key binding.
IMPORTANT NOTE #1 To ensure full compliance and no version conflict errors, completely remove all files associated with any earlier versions of the weapon mutators.
This includes all files that are part of an earlier version of the Wild West mutator:
WildWest.int WildWest.u wildwest_sounds.uax wildwestpak__animations.ukx wildwest_staticmeshes.usx WildwestSkins.utx
...and all files that are parts of the Sentinel Beta, Beta2, Beta3, or Beta4 mutators.
Any files that need to be updated will be replaced by the .ut2mod installer.
There have been numerous changes in the maps. Expect the unexpected and you won't be disappointed...:-)
IMPORTANT NOTE #2 Some of the Invasion maps have secret areas. These areas can be extremely difficult to reach without killing yourself. Some of these zones are protected by deadly mazes. Make sure that your "World Detail" setting is set to at least "High" or you will not be able to see the things that can kill you.***
IMPORTANT NOTE #3 In order to use the Dead Cat Invasion Map Pack on a UT2003 Server, you will need to add the following lines to their ut2003.ini file in the [Engine.GameEngine] section of the file:
[Engine.GameEngine] ServerPackages=WildWest_v101 ServerPackages=FireChucker ServerPackages=SA109 ServerPackages=Sentinel ServerPackages=Fyrian ServerPackages=PIC ServerPackages=MIB ServerPackages=Helios ServerPackages=ZencodersweaponsV17

Revision 1.1 - Updates all maps with new weapons and is compliant with "Small Weapons" and the "UTClassic" mutator. TO ENSURE FULL COMPLIANCE AND NO VERSION CONFLICT ERRORS, COMPLETELY REMOVE ALL FILES ASSOCIATED WITH EARLIER BETA VERSIONS OF THE WEAPON MUTATORS. THIS INCLUDES ALL FILES THAT ARE PART OF THE WILD WEST MUTATOR: WildWest.int WildWest.u wildwest_sounds.uax wildwestpak__animations.ukx wildwest_staticmeshes.usx WildwestSkins.utx ...AND ALL FILES THAT ARE PART OF THE SENTINEL BETA, BETA2, BETA3, BETA4 or BETA5 MUTATOR. ANY FILES THAT NEED TO BE REPLACED ARE CONTAINED IN THIS FINAL VERSION OF THE INVASION MAP PACK. The file: DM-(IN)DCWeaponsInvasionPack.ut2 is a place holder...DO NOT PUT IT INTO YOUR MAPS FOLDER! All of the weapons in these maps are now fully compliant with "Small Weapons" and with UTClassic. Finally, the .ut2UMOD file installs the Map Pack automatically, but there are many features involving the ten additional weapons which are fairly complex. To learn how to properly use the new weapons, please click on the "Release Notes" button when the installation is finished. You may also go into the UT2003\Help directory and double-click on the file "DC-SW-INV-Maps.html" at any time to get help. -Toonces
