    Play those canned bot messages

    download: http://www.mediafire.com/?cthoby2gcil

    (ini file goes in config, uc file goes in cookedpc\script)

    ***

    Sets up a console command for each type of voice message
    available in the character voice packs:

    INJURED
    STATUS
    INCOMING
    LOCATION
    INPOSITION
    MANDOWN
    FRIENDLYFIRE
    ENCOURAGEMENT
    ORBKILL
    FLAGKILL
    ACK
    SNIPER
    GOTYOURBACK
    HOLDINGFLAG
    GOTOURFLAG
    NEEDOURFLAG
    ENEMYFLAGCARRIERHERE
    VEHICLEKILL
    NODECONSTRUCTED

    (You need to type them in ALL CAPS, like you see them here,
    as I didn't feel it worthwhile to use that ~= thing.)

    (And precede it with the keyword "Mutate," like as in
    "Mutate GOTOURFLAG" for example)

    So, if you've got 19 unassigned keys lying around, you can
    bind one to each and every one of these, and trigger them
    whenever you want. Many of them are nearly useful.

    When you trigger one of these, your voice pack will be checked
    to see if you have any voice messages of the requested
    type available (not all characters have messages for all
    these types). If you do, one will be selected at random, and
    sent to everyone on your team (or just everyone, if you're
    not playing a team oriented game (in which case sending such
    a message at all would be mostly pointless, but that is neither
    here nor there)).

    Obviously, some of these are intended for use in CTF games, a few
    in WAR games, and some can be used in either. Naturally there
    is nothing to stop you from declaring that YOU HAVE THE FLAG in
    a WAR game, and so on.

    The LOCATION type has an interesting bit of extra functionality
    to it: It tends to choose which message to play based more or
    less on wherabouts in the map you happen to be. Which amounts
    to announcing which of about 3 zones you're in ("midfield",
    "enemy base," etc.). It doesn't work at all in maps without
    such relevant zones (deathmatch).

    Is there really no way to play such messages in the standard game? If not, awesome that you've created one

      1) Installation instructions need to be more specific - do you mean the cookedpc folder in the published folder or the unpublished folder? Additionally, where does the Classes folder included in the archive go?
      2) Once installed, how exactly do we bind them to the empty keys?
      3) Anyone verify if this thing works?
