UT2004 Editor's Choice Edition Bonus Pack
7:32 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

As a thank you to fans of its Unreal Tournament 2004 online first person shooter, Epic Games has released its Editor's Choice Edition Bonus Pack. The bonus pack contains six new characters, three new vehicles, and four unique new Onslaught maps.

Players wanting to get their hands on this new loot from the game's developers first need to update their copy of UT2004 to version 3323 if they haven't already done so. Players can then download the 84 MB file from the links below, un-archive the self-extracting .exe file by either changing the file extension to ".zip", or by using a third party un-archiving utility like Stuffit Expander, and manually install the new maps, characters, and vehicles by copying the files from every folder in the Bonus Pack to the appropriate application folder.

For players who have yet to custom install any UT2004 maps by hand, here are the instructions from the official MacSoft support web page:

Adding custom UT2K4 Maps

If you want to add custom (3rd party) maps to your UT2K4 folder do the following:

  • Find your UT2K4 application icon.
  • Control-click or right-click the icon.
  • Click Show Package Contents.
  • A window appears containing the folders you seek.
  • Add the appropriate files to the correct folders.

    Here is an extension list of UT2K4 extensions and appropriate folders.

    .utx > Textures
    .ut2 > Maps
    .ogg > Music
    .uax > Sounds
    .usx > Staticmeshes
    .int > System
    .u > System

  • Only once all the file shave been copied from the Bonus Pack into the appropriate folders will players be able to fully enjoy the Bonus Pack's full complement of new vehicles, maps, and characters. Readers having trouble installing this new patch should head over to the IMG forums, where a UT2004 ECE Bonus Pack thread is already underway:
