    Whoa. Nothing seems to be broken in Swarm... and I even connected on a 3204 server.

    Better read the changelist and run more tests. There's got to be *something* !!!

    Do you need the 1st patch to install the 2nd patch, or can you install the 2nd patch on the retail version as well?

    *NeoNight was never heard from again*

    This patch is completely compatible with the retail version - servers and clients of any flavor can connect with each other.
    This patch will not overwrite your ut2004.ini and user.ini files, except to update settings as necessary. This patch
    includes all changes made in Patch 1.

    Here is the full change list for Patch 2:

    Onslaught related:
    - Added bSmoothKarmaStateUpdates to Actor to control whether Karma interpolates between states
    - Added bRepulseWater to KRepulsors and enabled this for Hovercraft
    - Added bFlyingKarma to Pawn to indicate PHYS_Karma is active but pawn rotation should still be handled like PHYS_Flying
    - SVehicleFactories now store a reference to their marker as MyMarker
    - Added bCanHover to Vehicle to indicate a vehicle that can use HoverPathNodes to fly over water.
    - Added water damage support to Vehicle so that vehicles will take damage when under water.
    - Karma now collides correctly with inverted terrain - courtesy James Golding ;-)
    - Increased the extra linear dampening for Karma in water from 0.8 to 2.5 and angular dampening from 0.1 to 0.4
    - Moved RepulsorsShouldHit function to ONSVehicle where it should be.
    - Added support for PowerCores and PowerNodes triggering events when created and destroyed.
    - Cleaned up PowerCore energy beam effect when PowerCores are not present in the map.
    - Added bDriverCannotLeaveVehicle flag in ONSVehicle for vehicles you can't get out of but instead will try to flip you upright when you press USE if the vehicle is flipped.
    - Added bNeverActivate to ONSVehicleFactory that can be set by mods that want to use Onslaught maps but not factories.
    - Fixed a bug in ONSWeapon that used the primary fire projectile class for alt-fire instead of the alt-fire version.
    - Moved daredevil code server-side to avoid horrible cheating and the ability to mod/mutate features based on daredevil tricks.
    - Reversable vehicle factories will work correctly when sides are swapped.
    - Fixed midgame menu popping up when watching an Onslaught demo if the viewed player dies
    - Fixed camera rotation being changed when switching between first and third person view in a manta
    - Fixed target/ion painter ammo issues
    - Fixed bug in stunt mutator where vehicles would be accelerated in their local downward Z when holding the jump warmup while in air.
    - Onslaught turrets cannot damage PowerCores or PowerNodes
    - Onslaught vehicles take a very small amount of damage over time when on fire and there is no driver
    - Fixed players always spawning at own PowerCore after sides are swapped.
    - Fixed problem where bots weren't spawning at the nodes they are defending.

    General Game play:
    - More script warning fixes
    - Fixed armor loop in GameInfo.ReduceDamage() properly handling armor getting destroyed while absorbing damage
    - Invasion monsters never use default character mesh
    - Fixed CTFSquadAI.FindHidePathFor()
    - Make sure always add armor using Pawn.AddShieldStrength()
    - Fixed ShieldAbsorb() armor damage absorption to produce consistent results in all situations
    - Fixed spawning of physicsvolume entry and exit actors, as well as splash sounds, and made them client side.
    - Added WaterSplash, used for projectiles and pawns
    - Added SplashEffect property and CheckForSplash() function to WeaponAttachment, so instant hit weapons can cause splashes
    - Added BulletSplash, used for trace weapons
    - Landing sounds no longer stomp on splash sounds
    - Added WaterRing - spawned while pawn is walking in water, or center of pawn enters water (new PawnEntryActor property in PhysicsVolume)
    - Fixed pawn visible rotation lagging too far behind actual rotation (because of head/torso twist support)
    - Fixed bots going after nearby dropped inventory that they couldn't pick up
    - Fixed some dynamic uploads (which could cause occasional hitching during gameplay)
    - Fixed getting proper ammo count when picking up dropped weapon and already have ammo but no weapon of that type
    - Fixed SquadLeader getting set to none if everyone in squad is in a turret
    - HUD weapon bar bShowMissingWeaponInfo now config, so is properly saved
    - Fixed CTFSquadAI finding flagholder when holder is in vehicle
    - Fixed "Use Map Defaults" for bots can result in uneven teams in some maps
    - [USE] will only bring up the mid-game menu in ONS games
    - Fix for custom models crashing the single player game.
    - Fixed TracerProjectile location setting after near miss sound effect
    - Fixed BR bomb trail position in multiplayer
    - Added Instagib CTF as standalone gametype
    - Allow chatting when the game is paused.
    - No longer catch own weapon when thrown while running forward
    - Fixed weapons checking if they were out of ammo when they weren't the active weapon (which was causing undesired switching to best weapon)

    - Localized "New News" message
    - Added localized IRC channels for French and German.
    - Added a flashing messages when there is new community news.
    - Movie Panel.

    Networking Related:
    - Various Web Admin style fixes
    - Don't load non-default voicepacks on dedicated server
    - Fixed server enforcement of maxresponsetime, and make sure clients don't trip it accidentally
    - Fixed speedhack detection false positives

    - Fixed client-side game time getting screwed up
    - Improved jumping/dodging/etc. not getting lost when there's significant packet loss
    - Fixed Cheat protect to view most voicepacks as ok
    - Fixed *hopefully* the ServerBrowser locking packages and tripping cheat protection.
    - Don't spawn votinghandler and votingreplicationinfos for servers which don't have voting enabled (slight performance improvement for those servers)
    - TeamInfo and SquadAI have lower netupdatefrequency (for server performance). Set NetUpdateTime whenever a replicated property is updated to get it replicated immediately.
    - Make sure that mutators are properly reported to master server
    - Made ServerShortTimeout() replicated function reliable
    - MasterServerUplink now caches calls to GetServerInfo and GetServerDetails.

    - Fixed replication conditions for a bunch of vehicle/projectile properties, changed from bNetDirty to bNetInitial
    - Fixed NetworkStatusMessages once and for all
    - Reenabled temp. MD5 database generation for loaded packages on a server
    - Fixed "flying player" exploit.
    - Fixed keeping high translocator trajectory persistent across online level changes.

    Mod Author Related:

    - Fix for .INT files in mod hierarchy, Removed Temp MD5 Warning Message.
    - Call PostRender2D() on own pawn as well (mod authors can decide not to render custom beacon)
    - Added LevelInfo native function GetPhysicsVolume() - returns the physics volume at a specified location
    - Added actor property bTraceWater. If true, trace() by this actor returns collisions with water volumes
    - Added support for strafing while on ladders, if the LadderVolume property bAllowLadderStrafing is set true (still false by default)
    - Fix for log files and -MOD= switch
    - Fix for cache manager exporting ucl files when it shouldn't
    - Fixed LoadDecoText

    - Made Destroy() function call in ONSVehicle state code indirect (for debugger)
    - Fixed localization for mod support
    - Now support multiple music directories
    - Save Games fixed, with the following limitations:
    - ragdolls aren't serialized

    - added Actor events PreSaveGame() and PostLoadSavedGame()
    - Render hud overlays[] on DM_Low clients also

    3D Buzz Editor Enhancements (Thanks to our friends at www.3dbuzz.com ! Check out their UT2004 mod author video tutorials at

    - Maximize Viewports fixed

    - Option to auto-snap view on mesh change
    - Added realtime preview to the SM browser.
    - New Array tool for quickly adding actors.

    - Fixed bug reporting address for Italian, Spanish, and French localized versions.
    - Fixed "Intersect Function" crash from first patch.

    Tried it out and its working pretty good for me so far. Hehe someone is already crying because the water splashes slow down there performance, but the real kicker is he is standing on top of the splash. No duh it would give you worse performance if the splash covers up your whole screen :eek: .

    A lot of crashes like... the ones I don't get?

    And I don't mod so I don't need the UCL thing....

    Once they fix the crosshair thing, then I'll discuss updating. Until then, there is nothing I want or need. I don't need water splashes. (or want them.....) I don't need the fixed UCL thing. I need my crosshair.

    I got a weird graphical glitch in this....only noticed it twice, once was a split second oddity, another time I was playing AS-RobotFactory. When the door was blown open I saw the sky where the door used to be instead of seeing inside the building. Once I crossed the doorway it fixed itself.

    The water splashes need to have a thing like the Dust does, where you can set the colour of it. or even better, it takes on the colour the water.

    nice one. but the water rules.

    edit: bizarre. on second use, they worked properly....odd.

    I have everything set at highest in the settings but I don't see any water splashes in the game. I tried using weapons and bots, nothing. I have a Radeon 9800XT. Does anyone know what could be the problems?
