*****WARNING: THIS MOD ONLY WORKS WITH UT3 VERSION 1.3. IT WAS DEVELOPED LONG BEFORE THE TITAN PACK WAS RELEASED AND WE DO NOT HAVE PLANS TO UPGRADE IT TO MEET THE STANDARDS PUT FORTH IN V2.0 AND UP. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.******


We are grad students at The Guildhall at SMU, located in Plano, TX. For our 2nd major "Team Game Project" (TGP) we were given the assignment of creating a multiplayer-based mod utilizing the Unreal Tournament III Engine Technology.

The result of 9 students and 2 months of our hard work is Final Act.
Final Act is a 3rd person, real-time strategy game. It is not about killing your enemies directly, but more indirectly with the use of living statues called "Summons." The win condition is to destroy the other side's Soul Well and keep your own Soul Well from getting destroyed in the process.

The installer comes with the instruction manual (reading the manual is highly recommended), but remember it is a multiplayer mod, so it is first and foremost meant to be a multiplayer game. In testing we discovered the game plays best with 6 or more people (3-on-3) but if you don't have that many people to play with, you can still have fun and enjoy our game!

WE ARE GREATLY INTERESTED IN YOUR INPUT AND FEEDBACK. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR INTEREST!!!

Once you install, start a multiplayer match, and you should be able to select from one of the two levels and create a match. Then let people join and away you go! On behalf of Team Zombie Lips and The Guildhall at SMU, HAVE FUN!

Does this mean it doesn't work for UT3 patch 1.4 and above.. or do you have to have at least 1.3 patch..?

Learn to read and maybe you wont face avoidable problems, and "TYPING LIKE THIS"... makes you look ridiculous.

This mod adds two blank gametypes in the middle of the list, and its own at the bottom of the list. When trying to play I also get to 3... 2... 1... *crash*. I have the latest update, the 2.0 patch, and I have all the optional content installed. Oh, and the "uninstaller" I asked the setup program to install is nowhere to be found, so now I'm stuck with these problems.

Sorry to hear your issues. There was a very clear warning stated at the top of the summary page so it is unfortunate you missed that. The text is now large enough for new people so it cannot be missed.

Rudey, do you have the Titan Pack installed? Please let me know so I can put a warning up if that's the case. Thanks.

Its a bad mod. It has Heaven and Hell fighting each other on it.

Hm... funny, I don't remember there ever be any Christian connotations and mentions of heaven OR hell in the game... EVER.

Or maybe you're just joking?
