    I can't express how happy I was to be a beta tester.

    Aw dammit! I have to go to my brother's house today to help rake up leaves so I won't be able to play this for a while. Oh well, at least it'll still be here when I get back. Right?

    Right!?

    Okay, I just played it and oh my God. the XMk5 Submachine gun and the Reptile are my new favorite weapons :D

    Also, I absolutely love the ironsight tweaks. I'm gonna be playing this for a while...

    Shadowblade great job mate XD lots of options wow, is any chance to make some map adapted to this great mod/mutator in some near future┬┐

    What occurs if I use the weaponstuff thing to mixing BW weapons with another weapons? it could have some problems to do this?

    WeaponStuff thing?

    BW weapons should work with other mutators i think. Swapper should also support non-BW weapons, as should LoadOut.

    Not that I know of. IIRC, the BW weapons should still use your configs.

    This mod is pretty much the only reason I still (occasionally) play UT2K4, so this is really great news! :D

    Couple of questions, though:

    1) Do you have to remove the old BW/JW files first, or does the new install simply overwrite them?

    2) Are the BW community weapon packs compatible with 2.5, and do you have to delete and reinstall them?

    It will overwrite what it needs to. If you want a fresh install though, i've included a .bat file which will remove BWv2.0, v2.1, BP4 and JunkWar. You can run that .bat file and then extract the new pack :) The new pack has everything you need, so it's all good :)

    Is JunkWars that mod where you just pick up random crap and fight people with it? That mod was awesome.
