I'm just going to quote the site for a description here, I'm using their screeny's too, It's an amazing mod, and here is the UMOD version. If you'd prefer the zip you can also find it at this site. Radeonator will also probably write up a full review. But if you want the file in umod format now, here it is:) ~Szico VII~
ChaosUT2: Evolution (also known as 'ChaosUT2', or 'CUT2004') was developed by Chaotic Dreams, and is a free modification (commonly referred to as a 'mod') of the popular retail game Unreal Tournament 2004, which was created by Epic Games and Digital Extremes.
Chaos is a mod with a very long history (at least as far as mods are concerned). The original Chaos was made for Quake2 (ChaosDM for Q2), and that version was eventually included on the retail CD called 'Extremities'. The Chaos team then moved on to Unreal Tournament and produced ChaosUT, which was later included on the retail CD released by Epic Games called the 'Unreal Tournament Game of the Year Edition'. The next version was for UT2003, for which Chaos recieved 1st place honors for Best Mutator, in Phase 1 of the MSU Contest.
And finally we come to this version, for Unreal Tournament 2004, which has every indication of becoming the biggest, funnest, and highest quality version of Chaos ever.
Chaos has been designed to be as flexible and as compatible as was reasonably possible. Which is why we have provided a 'mutator' version of our 'mod'. Simply so that Chaos can be played and enjoyed in ALL standard UT2004 game types, in addition to most custom game types, and even when combined with many other mods and/or mutators.
However, Chaos does in fact also come with it's own complete game types, each with full bot support, and each fully functional in online play. And it is important to note that some Chaos features (ie: melee weapons) are only available thru these Chaos game types, and not thru our mutator.
ChaosUT2 can perhaps be referred to as 'a mod for those who like the game they bought'. In other words, we make no attempt at a 'total conversion', something that takes possibly the greatest FPS game yet, and turns in into something completely different. That is not our vision.
What we have attempted to do, as always, is to expand the game, bring some nice variety to your play, but to do it in a way, where (hopefully) you might not even be able to so easily tell where UT2004 ends, and Chaos begins. Our goal is to make the game bigger, longer, and maybe even better, all the while appearing almost as if it came with the game, right out of the box.
By doing so, Chaos brings an entirely new feel to the game of UT2004, but does it without removing anything from the original game. Each and every weapon, item, and feature included, covering everything from custom startup menus, to complete game types, to custom quit messages, has been designed and tested to work with the latest version of UT2004.
Perhaps the heart of the mod however, are the high quality, highly addictive Chaotic weapons. The current version contains a total of 18 weapons. And while some of them were inspired by the ealier versions of our mod, each has been reegineered and rebuilt from the ground up. Eight of the weapons included are melee weapons, which come complete with their own custom animations. The melee weapons are now available in all Chaos game types, including Duel, which was created specifically for them, and which is supported by a diverse set of maps.
for those who have played Chaos before, we thank you! It is our fans that keep us alive, as a mod and a mod team. And for this we are sincerely grateful. For those who are experiencing Chaos for the 1st time... Welcome! It is our pleasure to bring this mod to you, and we hope that you enjoy yourself.
(Oh by the way check out the grapple hook, its awesome :) ) ~Szico VII~
ChaosUT2:Evolution PR3 - Readme ================================ ChaosUT2: Evolution (aka 'ChaosUT2','CUT2','CUT2004'), the Chaos mod for Unreal Tournament 2004, was developed by Chaotic Dreams. ChaosUT2 URL: http://www.planetunreal.com/chaotic/ Chaotic Dreams URL: http://www.chaoticdreams.org/ Table of Contents ================= 1. Requirements 2. UT4MOD Installation 3. Zip Installation 4. Documentation 5. MAC USERS 6. Weapons 7. Items & Features 8. Cheat Commands & Keybinds 9. Bug Reports & Feedback 1. Requirements ================ ChaosUT2 PR3 requires that you have UT2004 installed, with the following addition(s); *The official v3204 patch Two examples of where you can get official UT2004 files are; http://www.unrealtournament.com/ http://download.beyondunreal.com/ 2. UT4MOD Installation ====================== Just run (double-click) the UT4MOD file and follow the instructions. Note: You will be prompted during the umod installation as to whether or not you wish to have the Chaos Mutator available w/o activating the Chaos mod. Note: either way, you can change this again manually by following the instructions for this under the Zip Installation section of this readme. Problems during UT4MOD installation ----------------------------------- - When I double-click the UT4Mod file, nothing happens or Explorer asks which program I want to open it with. Your .ut4mod file association is probably broken; that is a common problem and nothing to worry about too much. Check http://wiki.beyondunreal.com/wiki/UMOD/Problems for ways to fix the problem. - I can start the UT4Mod installer, but it keeps complaining that I don't have Unreal Tournament 2004 installed. Assuming that you do have Unreal Tournament 2004 installed, that's just another common problem with UT4Mods. Make a backup copy of Manifest.ini in your System directory and create a new Manifest.ini with the following lines in it: [Setup] MasterProduct=UT2004 Group=UT2004 [UT2004] Caption=Unreal Tournament 2004 Version=3204 That'll make the UT4Mod installer rightfully believe that you do have Unreal Tournament 2004 installed. Please replace the version number with the version actually installed. After running the game at least once the version can be found in the file UT2004.log in the System directory. 3. Zip Installation =================== Usually you should just be able to point the zip to your main UT2004 folder, and it will extract correctly. However, if you have trouble, you can use these instructions to manually place the files: NOTE: The UT4MOD install is the way to go! Please only use the zip install if you know what you are doing! ChaosUT2 has it's own folder within UT2004, and inside there all Chaos files are put in their respective subfolders - with the exception of Music (ogg) files! They go in the standard UT2004\Music folder. ukx = UT2004\ChaosUT2\Animations ut2 = UT2004\ChaosUT2\Maps uax = UT2004\ChaosUT2\Sounds ini = UT2004\ChaosUT2\System u = UT2004\ChaosUT2\System usx = UT2004\ChaosUT2\Static Meshes utx = UT2004\ChaosUT2\Textures ogg = UT2004\Music int = UT2004\System And there are 2 .ucl files; ChaosGames.ucl = UT2004\ChaosUT2\System ChaosUT2.ucl = UT2004\System If you wish to start UT2004 with Chaos already 'activated', you can make a copy of your UT2004 desktop shortcut, and add this at the end -mod="ChaosUT2" Using the Chaos Mutator w/o Activating Chaos Mod. Chaos comes in both "mod" and "mutator" form. To use the ChaosUT2 mutator in normal UT2004, without activating the Chaos mod, simply open your UT2004.ini file, found in your UT2004\System folder, and add these lines in the [Core.System] section: Paths=../ChaosUT2/System/*.u Paths=../ChaosUT2/Maps/*.ut2 Paths=../ChaosUT2/Textures/*.utx Paths=../ChaosUT2/Sounds/*.uax Paths=../ChaosUT2/StaticMeshes/*.usx Paths=../ChaosUT2/Animations/*.ukx And there is also a Chaos icon included in the ChaosUT2\Help folder. This way after a zip install you can still have a custom Chaos shortcut on your desktop, with it's own icon. 4. Documentation ================ Please refer to the documentation pages provided with CUT2 PR3. To open the CUT2 Docs, open the startme.html in the UT2004\ChaosUT2\Help folder. For additional information, please refer to the proper section of the CUT2 website. http://www.planetunreal.com/chaotic/ 5.
