Installing Maps and Mods
*Q:* How do I install custom maps?
*A:* If the maps just came in a ZIP file or a tarball, just put the
various files in the proper directories where you installed UT2K4. Put
.ut2 files in Maps; .usx in StaticMeshes; .utx in Textures; .uax in
Sounds; .ogg in Music; .ukx in Animations; .ka in KarmaData; and .int,
.u, .ucl, .so (if any) in System.
*Q:* Can I install a ut2mod?
*A:* Yes. Please note that this functionality is not well tested. I got
it took work in UT2K3 but haven't tried it in UT2K4 yet. Others have
reported that it works with UT2K4. This information is from the UT2K3
README-2199 (ucc-bin is in your ut2004/System directory):
./ucc-bin umodunpack -x file.ut2mod -nohomedir
to list contents of file:
./ucc-bin umodunpack -l file.ut2mod -nohomedir
*Q:* Epic released a bonus pack with two Onslaught maps (ONS-Aridoom and
ONS-Ascendancy), but the installer only supports Windows XP! I'd sooner
be disemboweled alive than install XP. Is there some way Linux users can
enjoy these maps too?
*A:* There sure is! Worthplaying has the map pack in a 12M ZIP file
<http://www.worthplaying.com/article.php?sid=17066>. This just contains
ONS-Aridoom.ut2 and ONS-Ascendancy.ut2. Unzip these files into your
ut2004/Maps directory as noted above.
Don't know if this will help but it's a start.
