===Installation===
= Requirements (all OS)
- Original copy of UT2004
- Patch '3355'

-> Please note DA2 does -NOT- require ECE Bonus Pack. The files are stripped and included
with the file you received.

= Windows (EXE, ZIP)
If you are using the EXE version run DA2Setup.exe and follow the instructions. On the other
hand if you downloaded the ZIP version extract the folder DA2 to your root UT2004 directory.

Example: If your root directory is C:\Games\UT2004 then extract there. To run the mod now
either go to your newly created directory C:\Games\UT2004\DA2 and double-click on DA2.exe.
You may also use the command line mode to run DA2 which in this case is

Start -> Run -> C:\Games\UT2004\System\UT2004.exe -mod=da2

= Linux (ZIP only)
Just like windows extract the files to your corresponding UT2004 root directory. You will
not be able to use the EXE file so use the command line as mentioned above.

= MAC (ZIP only)
Install and use the MAC Launcher included in your ZIP file. The DA2_Mac_Launcher.sit is
located into your x:\UT2004\DA2\MAC directory. Simply, double-click to start the game.
