As you may know the last phase of the MSU contest for UT2k4 was this Friday. Part of the rules to sumbit a mod is to have it availble to the public. The issue here is that in order run some of these mods (ChaosUT2 for example) you need to have the patch. Epic told us that this patch was supposed to be out early last week. Epic wanted the mod teams to use this patch because it fixes a number of issues and they planned to break network compatibility with it. The only bad thing is they set the relase date at the same time as the MSU Phase4 deadline. Thus mod teams had to try to work it in their mod or face the chance of their mods' not being able to play on-line. It was really a loose-loose case for every one mod wise.

But once the patch is offical, it shold do much good to the UT2k4 community.

Check the forum leaders, ginga. I'm not a mod.

Back on topic - I can't imagine this patch addresses the Forceware 65.xx-66.xx BSOD on exit bug with DEP enabled does it?
