File Description

The main concept behind Unreal Annihilation is to bring the RTS style of Total Annihilation to Unreal Tournament 2003. To do this, we plan to employ two methods; The classic Overhead view, and the engine's favorite First Person view. Both of these views will aid the player in leading his units to victory.

The story line simply follows in Total Annihilation's footsteps. Even after the war between humans had ended, the two factions of the Arm and Core still fight on over un-inhabited worlds, lead by their Commanders. Instead of human pilots, the Core simply copied their soldier's brain patterns into a comuter, allowing them to simply copy it into each new unit, where the Arm uses cloning to create its pilots. Thus the war of the clones vs patterns began, better known as the Arm vs the Core.

This is the patch version. You require a previous install of Unreal Annihilation. I currently have no time to do a full review, please e-mail me a review to gsmith2001@gmail.com if you want to.

1 How to install
================================================

1.1 Installation
----------------
If you have the Zip, Rar or any other archived version, extract the contents to the UT2004 directory. Make sure to extract with paths.

If you have the UMOD version, run the exe and the installation wizard should guide you through.


1.2 Setup
---------
Enter your UT2004 directory
Enter the folder 'System'
Right-click on the UT2004.exe and choose 'Create shortcut'
Right-click on the shortcut and click on 'Properties'
In the field 'Target:' change the path to:

..\UT2004\System\UT2004.exe -Mod=Annihilation2k4

----
i.e.
If your installation was at the default installation location of:
C:\UT2004\System\UT2004.exe

The shortcut would be changed to:
C:\UT2004\System\UT2004.exe -Mod=Annihilation2k4
----

Run this shortcut to play Unreal Annihilation


================================================
2 How to play
================================================

2.1 Finding Unreal Annihilation
-------------------------------
Currently the UA2004 menu is not implemented. When you run Unreal Annihilation you will reach the default UT2004 menu. You can access Unreal Annihilation in the 'Gametype' menu under the section 'Custom Game Type'


2.2 Starting solo a game
------------------------
Go to Instant Action from the main menu
Choose Unreal Annihilation as gametype
Choose map you wish to play on
Press 'Play'
Once map is running click the mouse and wait until the team colour option displays

NOTE: There is no single player game in the form of missions or A.I skirmishes. This is just to see the game run and move about.


2.3 Starting a dedicated server
-------------------------------
Go to the directory ..\UT2004\annihilation2k4\System
Run 'UA Server.bat'


2.4 Joining a multiplayer game
------------------------------
From the main menu open the console by pressing the ' key
type:

open <IP ADDRESS OF THE SERVER HERE>

Replacing <IP ADDRESS OF THE SERVER HERE> with the servers IP

----
i.e.
If the servers address is 123.456.789.000 you would type:
open 123.456.789.000
----

Unfortunetly this is the method that must be used until we resolve some bugs.


================================================
3 Keyboard commands
================================================

[ = Raise the camera
] = Lower the camera
Home = Toggle displaying health bars (on non-selected units)
Shift = Queue the next command
CTRL + # = Set the selected units to that group number
# = Select the units of that group number

Commands are currently only changeable through editing your Annihilation2k4User.ini file

================================================
4 Troubleshooting
================================================

4.1 Crashes, bugs, errors
-------------------------
If you find any of these, please report them to this thread:
http://ua.tauniverse.com/forums/board.php?boardid=66

We have included the source of our mod for people to view (not to steal), if you think you can provide a fix for a bug using this, please show us here:
http://ua.tauniverse.com/forums/board.php?boardid=50

-Air units don't really work
-Water units do NOT work
-Weapons don't work on structures
-Animations are messed up somewhat
-Repair doesn't work
-On-Line play may be a bit choppy depending on your connection and the speed of the server, and not working completely right (small gliches)
-Totally untested with more than 2 people playing
-Unit AI is dumb and blind. They will not attack on site, you have to explicitly tell them to attack, however...
-Turrets DO work, somewhat, so defend your base well.

In a future version it will be more playable, bear with us.


4.2 Help on Mac and Linux
-------------------------
Currently there is none.
If you can contribute how to install/run/play this on Linux or Mac, please post it here:
