A Star Trek Elite Force II mod by Gez, Derrick Goodfriend, Flix, gameRevolt, Tempest, True Captain, Valix and Worf.
This is not an actual patch, but a MOD for the game EF2. It was called the "Ultimate Patch" in that it fixes and enhances several things in EF2 that could not be further corrected due to the lawsuit between Activision and Paramount. It also includes 2 maps.
It is recommended that you run the Ultimate Patch shortcut only if you intend to join a patched server (normal ef2 servers may kick you for invalid .pk3 files) The included maps will ONLY work with the Ultimate Patch and will have an error under normal EF2. The sounds problem from the previous Ultimate Client mod has been resolved in this patch. To identify if a server is running the Ultimate Patch, look in the ServerInfo page, under protocol (Normal servers will say "66", patched servers will say "UP-1.0")
