    Should be a simple add-in for UT2Vote.

    I'm off to Atlantic City in a few mins, so it probably won't be me. I've been looking forward to this one. Be a nice treat to spring on my regulars..

    Ok, I'm home at last and starting to look it over.. Seems there's more that needs to be done than I thought initially. BTW, I still haven't installed it.. Just looking over the zip file.

    UT2004's stock 2k4fonts.utx and 2k4menu.utx will need to be set to serverside only/client optional to allow both normal UT2004 and also KillingFloor clients to connect to the server w/o a mismatch. This will probably mean some unpredictable results when mixed clients try to run this mod. I'll find out in the morning for sure though..

    i guess, this won't work. Until today i couldn't manage, to get mods propperly running together with standard UT, if those mods use system-files, using the same name as the standard filse, which is imho very very stupid :(

    Aww.. Don't be silly. UT2Vote can make anything work when you combine it with some admin know-how.

    For example, I have Killing Floor working on my beta server now.
    Check it out.. UT2004://66.208.105.179:7777
    BTW, add that puppy to your favorites too, cause I NEVER set it to advertise and hell knows what you'll find on it sometimes.

    Turns out an admin will have to replace 2 stock UT2004 files to get this to work. I have modified the packageflags of a dedicated 3355 server's 2K4Menus.utx and 2K4MenuSounds.uax to disregard whatever the client connects with and avoid the dreaded mismatch disconnect. (I did a similar trick with DeathBall)
    I have attached a zip containing the 2 required files. They go into the DEDICATED SERVER's ../UT2004/Textures/ and ../UT2004/Sounds/ folders. They are not for your client or listen server.

    That was the only challenging hurdle, really. The rest is pretty routine for any UT2Vote veteran:

    (as always, watch for stray spaces in the following - damn forum bug)
    Code:
    [UT2Vote51.UT2VoteGameTypes]
    GameType=(GameName="Killing Floor",HideVote=False,Clan=True,RequiredPlayers=1,MapLimits=0,ServerName="BuD2k4 KillingFloor Test - UT2Vote",UseMapList=False,DefaultMap="KF-WestLondon",MapPrefix="KF",AltMapPrefix=,GameClass="KFmod.KFGameType",Mutators="DummyMut.DummyMutE",Commands="?MaxLives=0?GoalScore=0?TimeLimit=40?MinPlayers=0?MaxPlayers=6?MaxSpectators=6?Translocator=False?WeaponStay=True?BalanceTeams=True?ForceRespawn=False?PlayersMustBeReady=False?Tournament=0?GameStats=True?GameSpeed=1.00?FF=100?NumBots=1?Difficulty=5?NoOverTime=False?VsBots=False?bCustomGame=True")
    
    [UT2Vote51.UT2VotePackages]
    Packages=(MutClassName="DummyMut.DummyMutE",ServerPackages="KFMod,KFGUI,GoodKarma")

    I was first thinking with "bCustomGame=True" there shouldn't be any problems at all
