Even including the Official ECE Bonus Pack and all 3 of the CBPs: Community Bonus Pack 1, Community Bonus Pack 2 Volume 1 and 2. We also used CTF4, allowing us the old UTClassic style 3 or 4 Team gameplay, but with CTF and providing Deathmatch as well. One of the major reasons for making a map pack was to finally make Vehicle Capture The Flag a reality. We were tired of waiting for Epic to release a package themselves, and after ECE showed up, majority of hope was lost. We all set out to scour the net for old rebuilt Classics to the new age very creative maps. We tested Virtually all VCTF maps we could find, they were our major concern at the start. We also were interested in new mutators, gametypes, custom bots and link setups for Onslaught maps you name it. Mostly looking for fun things to play with, overall graphic quality wasn't a concern at the time. We now strive to make a sleek, professional looking package that everyone can enjoy high quality maps and mutators, but still have every ounce of fun that could possibly be squeezed out. Hopefully we can make every UT2K4 player happy, even if it's just a handfull of UT2K4 players. ~~Installation~~ -UMOD- Should autmatically startup after being decompressed and successfully extracted. Run the UMOD to start the UT2K4 Setup installer. Follow the Directions carefully for a hopefully flawless install. Custom Bot & Forced Custom Bot Additionals Install Selections: The first option HAS TO BE Selected if the second is selected. The first installs 1 UPL Bot Configuration file, these tell the game what bots to load up durring Instant Action or while hosting multiplayer games either via Listen or Dedicated server modes. IF you selected only the second, you may end up errors. This is the ONLY concern when using the UMOD installer. WARNING: In your own player character selection screen, you'll encounter approximately 32 duplicated models and skins with differing names. THESE are the custom bots, DO NOT SELECT these as your character as joining another server will make you appear as a default character such as Jacob to other players, or worse case, boot you from the server with model/skin detection and preventions. Additionally, IF you wish to have the orginal bots back playing in the game, go into the archive you had previous extracted this document, and it's complement of files. Within it should be a folder dubbed Bot Backups. Read the Bot Backups document if you wish. COPY ALL files within the folder aside from the document. Paste them into your UT2004/System folder, REPLACE all files. Go play! Lastly, if you play on servers and they all appear to be default skins such as Jacob, and you don't like it. You can fix this by copying all the files asidef rom the document to your ut2004/system folder, replaceing the files. HOWEVER, doing so will allow the orginal bots to play again. Your choice to have either one or the other. You'd have to manually copy the specific upls from your ut2004/system directory to a folder if you wish to use the custom bots again, before replaceing those files. -NON~UMOD- IF you are having difficulties running the UMOD, or you wish to install it manually or for server use, please follow these directions closely. Launched UMODExtractor. In the UMOD FILE, load the UMOD you wish to extract. YOU may have to click OBJECTS OF and select all files. In the Destination Directory, Browse to your UT2004 Folder EXAMPLE: C:\Unreal Tournement 2004\ MAKE SURE that there is a Forward Slash (\) after the destination. NEXT SCROLL down the list to find 2 files under the following: System\Manifest.ini System\Manifest.int UNCHECK these 2 files. Hit EXTRACT CHECKED FILES, wait till this button is not greyed again, at which point hit EXIT. Play the game! ~~Known Issues~~ Due to the nature of all Umods, the progress bar doesn't always work "perfectly" nor does the "space Required" information. Listed under current version is the my approximate space required, refer to it if you are receiving BOGUS space required information. IF you encounter problems, PLEASE, PM me over at Driverheaven.net OR create a new thread detailing everything you can possibly imagine. I'll try my best to help you out with your issues. I however cannot take responcibility with any major problems, you take a risk using this package. ~~Credits~~ Thank you Epic for bringing us an excellent, rich and fun filled game.
