***** About *****
This mutator came about due to guilt about shooting talking players in UT2003.
In UT, players had talking animations, but in UT2003 either they have none or
are hard to distinguish from the normal idle animation.
Others in the clan I'm in had the same problem so necessity breeds innovation
... or stealing from another game. The idea came from Quake 3, with it's chat
There is not much to this mutator. It just puts an icon above your head when you
are talking. There no configuration files and no client controls.
This document is meant for server admins.

**** Starting A Server ****
UT2003 has two says to start a server. One is via the Host Multiplayer Game menu
in UT2003, the other is by using UCC.exe ( Windows ) or ucc-bin ( Linux ).
UCC.exe server ?game=mutator=TA100.MutTalkingIcon ini= log=
./ucc-bin server ?game=mutator=TA100.MutTalkingIcon ini= log=
***** Client *****
There is no reason to use the Frnz Talking Icon 100 in a single player game
since it doesn't work for bots.
***** TODO *****
I've had requests to put all sorts of goodies in this mutator, like punishing
type killers. I'm holding off since, KISS ( keep it simple stupid ) was the goal
for this mutator. So there is nothing TODO.
