BeyondUnreal pointedout that EBGames now lists theEditor’s Choice Edition of UnrealTournament 2004 as available for shipping. The EC Edition includes newcontent created by Epic (including three new vehicles and four new Onslaught maps) and severalcommunity-developed mods, such as:

As reportedpreviously, a Linux installer is on the first disc in the retail box.

Epic has also released the EC bonus content (screenshots) for existing UT2004 owners; thepackage has a .exe extension but can be decompressed with an unzip utility.When I tested it out earlier this evening I was able to copy the files into myUT2004 directory and mess around with the new maps and vehicles without anyapparent issues. If a Linux-specific EC installer is released in the nearfuture we’ll be sure to make a note of it (I’d repackage it for download rightnow, but I’m not sure if the EULA allows that).

Edit – Friday Sep 24 14:53:24 2004 – Ryan Gordon has released a Linux package containing the EC bonus content and the version 3323 patch.

Edit – Friday Sep 24 17:20:03 2004 – Ryan Gordon has posted an article discussing the various installation and patch (the latest is still version 3323) options available for UT2004 owners at present, which includes a download link for a Linux package of the ECE bonus pack.

    Ryan Gordon on the ut2004 list says:

    1) Download the file
    2) unzip it somewhere
    3) Delete System/User.ini and Help/UT2004Logo.bmp
    4) Copy the rest of the files into your installation.

    Extra credit for deleting the .exe and .dll files, but there isn’t any
    harm in them sitting there.
