    Are there multiple editions of UT2004?

    Yup! There are four different retail versions of UT2004:

    1) 6CD version (main version for North America, rest of the world, Asia, and some parts of Europe)
    2) DVD (Main version for Europe, Germany will be DVD only, not North America)
    3) DVD Special Edition (w/bonus DVD and a headset), this should be available pretty much everywhere but in LIMITED QUANTITIES. 4) DVD 2-Disc Edition (released April 13th. Contains the game on the first DVD and the Special Edition bonus content on the second, but doesn't have a headset or the fancy packaging the Special Edition has.

    Where can I find new custom skins and models?


    If you downloaded anything extra for ut2k4 (such as maps, skins etc...) and dont know where to put the included files, take a look at their extensions.

    Put .utx files in your ut2004/textures folder
    Put .u files in your ut2004/system folder
    Put .upl files in your ut2004/system folder
    Put .ukx files in your ut2004/animations folder
    Put .ka files in your ut2004/karmadata folder
    Put demo 4 files in your ut2004/demos folder
    Put maps in your ut2004/maps folder
    Put .ogg files in your ut2004/music folder

    how do i get the funny vechile horn?

    If you press semicolon ( ; ) while driving a vehicle it will play the horn! There is a different horn sound for each vehicle.

    Also, if you bind a key to 'playvehiclehorn 1' it will play a second, slightly more funny horn for each vehicle. Do that by entering:

    set input "key" playvehiclehorn 1

    At the console, where "key" is whatever key you want to bind it to.


    Unlock all team symbols without beating game:

    If you can't wait to unlock all the team symbols by playing through the single player tournament mode, then just look in the ut2004 /system folder for two files, and and open them in something like notepad, because they are only text files. You'll notice that some have "SP" next to them, meaning they are unlocked through the single player mode, so just take out those so they are just "" and save.

    official storyline/teams

    It's the year 2362. The most anticipated Tournament ever is about to take place, dwarfing the spectacle and drama of previous events. The finest competitors ever assembled prepare to lay waste to their opponents and claim the Tournament Trophy for themselves.

    The Tournament 2362 has a cast of characters unequaled in its 25 year history.

    The Corrupt: Xan Kriegor was long regarded as invincible, until Malcolm defeated him in the fourth officially recognized Tournament finals. After a long hiatus, he has returned to lead the Liandri team, The Corrupt, back to the championship. Xan is sitting out the early rounds, which he perceives as beneath his attention.

    Thunder Crash: Following his well publicized break-up with long-time teammates Brock and Lauren, Malcolm has returned to lead his old team, Thunder Crash. Malcolm is currently rehabilitating an injury sustained in last year's championship match, but he is expected to be healthy in time for the Tournament Finals.

    Iron Guard: Brock and Lauren joined forces with Malcolm during his reign as Tournament champion. Infighting and recrimination over their stunning defeat in last year's Tournament led to the dissolution of that team. Now, Brock and Lauren have returned leading their old team, the Iron Guard.

    Juggernauts: Gorge is determined to prove that his one year reign as Tournament Champion is no fluke, and he has re-assembled the Juggernaut team he led to the championship. Axon Research Corporation has made armor and bio-genetic upgrades to the Juggernauts design for this year's Tournament.

    Iron Skull: This year, the Skaarj Empire is represented by the Iron Skull clan, who seek to regain honor after long being held responsible for the loss of the Skaarj Mothership during the Human/Skaarj wars.

    Sun Blade: Sun Blade is comprised of former Temple Guardians and veterans of the Desert Legion. They see victory in the Tournament as their only hope for burial and eternal life in the Valley of Kings on Luxor IV.

    Super Nova: Super Nova, a team of mercenaries from the Seventh Mercenary Fleet, has entered the Tournament to pay off their debts to the Izanagi Corporation.

    Black Legion: The Black Legion is made up of the hideously deformed subjects of weaponized genetic mutation tests. This year, they have a new leader, Abaddon, the current pinnacle of achievement of this line of experiments.

    Fire Storm: The Mokara are respected and feared as warriors. The Mokara's elite fighting unit, Fire Storm, sends a team of their best soldiers to the Tournament each year.

    Hellions: Once feared and reviled throughout human space as pirates and renegades, the Hellions seek to gain respectability as a mercenary outfit. They've entered the Tournament to demonstrate their capabilities to potential customers.

    Blood Fist: The only team in the Tournament acknowledged to be entirely cybernetic, Blood Fist warriors have their programming upgraded each year, and have become more and more lethal.

    Goliath: With the success of Gorge's Juggernauts in last year's Tournament, Axon Research Corporation is now sponsoring Goliath in hopes of producing an all Juggernaut finals.

    First of all I wanna say that ive only tested this in onslaught but it *might* work in onther game modes also.
    So here we go:

    Enter a game and type "god", then "playersonly" in the console without the ". After that type the following in the console (pick one):

    for human spaceship:
    summon UT2k4AssaultFull.ASVehicle_SpaceFighter_Human

    for skaarj spaceship: summon

    K, now the spacefighter should have spawned, exit out of the console, DONT MOVE YOUR CHARACTER, just press the button you use to get into vechiles. After that you should be in the spacefighter! ok now open the console and type "playersonly" again, without the ". This will unfreeze the action. To slow down the spacefighter press backwards, to speed up press forwards. Shooting weapons works the same as the raptor. You can cycle your secondary fire targets using the prev and next weapon buttons. Thats basically it. have fun guys!
    To do siderolls press space then a strafe button (prob a or d) The reason why i told you to put in godmode is because if ur ighter hits into an object then it goes poof, but if ur a safe driver, then by all means turn it off. Secondary fire will take out a tank in 2 shots, but it has trouble taking out raptors sometimes.

    What is it?

    UT2Vote is probably the most sophisticated voting system available for Unreal Tournament. Beyond simple mapvoting, it also allows your players or subordinate admins to do anything from selecting gametypes, mutators, and weapon arenas. They can also kick misbehaving players, configure clanmatches, change individual game settings and more.

    To learn how to setup map vote with the games built in functions,

    How can I turn off fog in the game? Will sliding the fog distance bar (located in the settings/display tab) all the way to the left help?

    There is no way to turn off fog in the game, the fog distance bar only affects relative scaling of distance fog.

    Note: for better performance, set the bar on high values.

    What movements can I do in the game? (from ut2k3)

    Jump: press space (default)

    Dodge: you dodge (tap movement key twice, like RIGHT, RIGHT)

    Double jump: you jump while in mid-air just after jumping (JUMP, JUMP)

    Diagonal dodge: use it to move faster or dodge a bit farther by dodging diagonally, usually in the direction you're currently moving. (hold FORWARD, look 56 degrees left, RIGHT, RIGHT)

    Dodge jump: you dodge then jump while in mid-air (RIGHT, RIGHT, JUMP)

    Diagonal dodge jump: most useful sequence to move faster, a diagonal dodge where you jump while in mid-air to maintain horizontal dodge speed increasing travel distance (DIAGONAL DODGE, JUMP)

    Wall dodge: a dodge that only works if you're near a wall (doesn't work on static meshes and some irregular walls), useful to dodge while in mid-air (JUMP while standing close to a wall or JUMP against a wall, DODGE in the direction opposite to the wall)

    Wall dodge jump: a wall dodge where you jump right after dodging, increases travel distance and height (WALL DODGE, JUMP)

    Double jump wall dodge: like a wall dodge, only you double jump before performing the wall dodge (DOUBLE JUMP while standing close to a wall or DOUBLE JUMP against a wall, DODGE in the direction opposite to the wall)

    Diagonal wall dodge: a wall dodge where you face the wall diagonally and dodge diagonally away from the wall, increasing travel distance a bit (JUMP while facing/moving diagonally towards a wall, DODGE in a diagonal direction away from the wall)

    Diagonal wall dodge jump: you can figure this one out.

    Double jump diagonal wall dodge: self-explanatory. See double jump wall dodge.

    Lift jump: a jump performed while in an moving lift that adds to your travelling speed/distance. (board a lift, JUMP while it's moving)

    Weapon jump: use a weapon's knockback to add speed to your jump, usually harming the player. Can be done with weapons like the shield gun, shock rifle secondary, flak cannon secondary, rocket launcher, even the redeemer, and can be used in conjuction with other jumps (aim at wall/floor, JUMP and FIRE simultaneously)

    Boost dodge: this is a very unique jump that can only be performed while standing close to a wall (like with the wall dodges, but it is not qualified as a wall dodge) and requires a special keystroke sequence. You must tap a direction key, jump and tap that direction key again. It only works if the tapping of direction keys is within the dodge double-click time. So if your dodge double-click time is set to 0.25s, you must tap the key, jump, then tap it again within 0.25s of the first tap. It's like a double tap with a jump in between. (stand close to a wall, tap movement key opposite to wall, JUMP, tap movement key again)

    Jump boost dodge: you jump before performing the boost dodge, providing greater initial height and travel distance(JUMP, BOOST DODGE)

    Boost dodge jump: a boost dodge where you jump again while in mid-air, providing even greater travel distance than a jump boost dodge(BOOST DODGE, JUMP)

    Diagonal boost dodge: a boost dodge where you face the wall diagonally and boost dodge in the opposite diagonal direction, going even farther (stand close to wall diagonally, tap movement key diagonally away from wall, JUMP, tap movement key again)

    Diagonal boost dodge jump: self-explanatory. It's the farthest you can go by yourself without the help of a lift (DIAGONAL BOOST DODGE, JUMP)

    TIP #1: there is some control over speed and direction while in mid-air, so to increase travelling distance or control, it is recommended that you hold the movement key towards the desired direction of movement while jumping or dodging.
    TIP #2: when lift jumping, time yourself to jump when the lift is moving at its highest speed.
    TIP #3: practice, practice, practice!

    NOTE: these jumps are not made up, they actually work and correspond to the names they received. Of course there are more possible combinations like a diagonal weapon double lift jump or something, but they are not worth mentioning. Some combinations are not possible though, like a double jump wall dodge jump, since you can't jump a third time after double jumping.

    Some more Tips & Tricks for UT2004's "Onslaught" mode:

    AVRiL: The AVRiL levels the playing field between vehicles and pedestrians, but there are a number of tips that can tilt the advantage even more strongly in the ground pounders favor. A favorite tactic around the Epic offices is to purposely fire the AVRiL at nothing but blue sky. Once the missile has covered some distance, the player THEN locks onto an enemy vehicle. If done correctly you can reduce the "Missile Lock" warning the enemy player gets to almost nothing and ensure a satisfying hit. Don't get too cocky, however. AVRiL missiles, like the Redeemer are somewhat vulnerable in flight. An eagle-eyed sniper can detonate the warhead well away from its target if they're paying attention.

    Burning Wrecks: When vehicles meet their inevitable destruction, their inertia and mass transform them into a hazard for both sides. These flaming husks can crush people on foot, force emergency detours for other vehicles, and just in general make the environment that much more hostile to living creatures. Exploit this fact, and even though you may be already dead (thus the burning wreck), you can still rack up the kills.

    Falling Vehicles: Something that many people might miss is that players fall faster from a height than vehicles do. On Torlan Tower in the demo, many a Raptor has cart wheeled off the edge of an under fire attempt to pick up the Redeemer. When this happens, though, you definitely have a chance to catch the tumbling vehicle. Just tap the "Use" key when in range of the vehicle and you can pull off the kind of stunts normally reserved for Hollywood stuntmen. A nice side benefit of this is that all falling damage is removed if you manage to get into the vehicle. This allows you to sometimes survive falls that would normally splatter you across the landscape (just remember to pull up as the vehicles inertia isn't zeroed out).

    Link Gun: The link gun is arguably the most important weapon in Onslaught. The secondary fire is not only indispensable for repairing vehicles and turrets, but it can also greatly accelerate the capture of a node. This effect is enhanced even more if you "chain" a number of people using the link gun (in other words, link to a person, who is linked to a person, who is linked to a node). This increases the effect of the beam more than if the three were capturing the node independently. Be careful, however, as unscrupulous manta pilots will often look for these pyramids of beams as signs that a group of players is nearby. Two or three linked teammates healing a Goliath can make that tank virtually indestructible.

    Manta Tricks: The manta is, in many ways, the supreme anti-infantry vehicle. Its ability to crouch or slam down onto enemies allows it to ambush and eliminate foes before they even know what hit them. The flat, low wings of the Manta also allow it to flip other vehicles, ejecting their occupants from the cockpit. Try to get a wing under a Hellbender for instance, use the "jump" key, and wreak havoc among the confused pedestrians.

    Get to nodes fast with the Scorpion. Scorpion: A great and fast recon vehicle, the Scorpion is well-equipped to tackle both infantry and hard targets. Everyone knows about the "hedge clipper" blades that the secondary fire extends, but few realize how lethal the Bolo weapon is against Mantas. Those huge air intakes on the sides of the Manta will suck the sticky green weapon discharge right into its fans, almost guaranteeing one dead pilot. Additionally, sometimes fully charging the Bolo isn't the best solution for dishing out the most damage. A number of quick, three-ball bursts against a power node can quickly eat it away to nothing.

    Spider Mines: Spider mines can be something of a finesse weapon, especially when used with the following tactics. One strategy is to deploy the mines on the hood of a friendly vehicle. This creates something of an automatic defense network around the vehicle that triggers when an enemy gets close. Additionally, Spider mines are great backup when none of your teammates can be found. What better cover for capturing a node than dropping a few Spider mines around the area to notify you when an enemy approaches, or even better, deals with the threat itself.

    Sticky Grenades: Sticky grenades are a great way to ratchet up the destructive power of vehicles and other weapons. When combined with Spider mines, they pack a far greater wallop than the Spider mines alone. Now when you steer them into the path on an oncoming tank, they actually have a chance to destroy it. Covering a vehicle in grenades also creates a moving bomb, one that can be carefully positioned or rammed directly into an enemy power core. Think of Sticky grenades as a tool for turning up the volume UT2004's already lethal pantheon of vehicles and weapons.

                      Rendering Modes
                      To use these, run UT2K4 and start a game of instant action. Open the console and type in one of the following commands:

                      rmode 1 = render only wireframe
                      rmode 2 = zone view (forces all BSP to change to the color of the zone which it is in. statics are not effected)
                      rmode 3 = texture use (only applies to BSP- not to static mesh)
                      rmode 4 = turns all bsp white. statics have normal lighting applied (I am not sure of the purpose for this render mode)
                      rmode 5 = render NORMAL
                      rmode 6 = render with no shadows (unlit)
                      rmode 7 = lighting mode
                      rmode 8 = visualizing overdraw mode

                      I use these a lot for mapping/video editing.
