Radiosity - The excellent voice pack and one (of two) species script included here were created by Radiosity from an Unreal II package and edited to work correctly in UT2004.  Thanks for letting me bundle it here and for making such a great pack for the community ;)

Epic Games, Digital Extremes and Legend Entertainment for the respective Unreal® titles used in the content of this pack.



IMPORTANT:  Before you begin, please ensure your UT2004 installation is patched to v3339 (Patch 5) or greater as this pack requires this version for online compatibility...  Servers should really be upgrading to this version (or later) also - What kind of admins are out there at all?  ;)

The latest patch can be downloaded from http://www.unrealtournament.com/ut2004/downloads.php#patches

IMPORTANT:  This pack will not connect to servers running the SafeGame (101 Beta 6 (and earlier probably)) mutator because of the custom species scripts included.  It will, however, connect to servers running AntiTCC final and I've tested it extensively to verify this.  I could have worked around the SafeGame problem by leaving out the voice pack and scripts but wasn't inclined to as...

A.	Patch 3339 allows custom species in online play (I believe) and many content developers have waited for that option.
B.	Any future models and skins will most likely come with custom content (some scripts I've already written and intend using).
C.	I'm not gonna' leave out the content that makes the pack complete imho.
D.	If one can't use a voice pack online (as a SafeGame option) then bah humbug, one won't bother connecting to servers that use it.

Server admins running SafeGame have options if they want people using this pack to connect (although I've not been able to test this) - Refer to the mutator's ReadMe file and the sections relating to bAllowVoicePacks, bAllowSpeciesType are the ones may need changing.

The decision to convert the included model from Unreal II: The Awakening to a UT2004 working model was only made possible by the updated UT2004 EULA (Dec 6, 2004).  Including the voice pack by Radiosity was a foregone conclusion and I did so with permission.  This pack includes four characters and a duplicate of each for the Single Player experience.  It also has full Multiplayer support with support for the newer gametypes (CTF4/TDM4).  The custom species I used is a foray into UnrealScript as another progression forward.  These characters were fully tested online, offline and in the aforementioned CTF4 to ensure compatibility.

I'd recommend using these characters with species statistics enabled (under the mutators section) to get the most from the characters and to experience the gameplay the way I intended it ;)

Finally, I was gonna' make the server (push) files available and redirect files also but compatibility issues stopped my from doing this.  (More info?  mail me).
