How to install Ultimate MapPack 2
UltimateMappack2 with updates 1,2,3,4,5 included can be downloaded here.
This file contains self extracting archive, which you should unpack to folder where AvP2 is installed (default is
"C:\Program Files\Fox\Aliens vs. Predator 2").
Update 6 will be released at beginning of October 2010, so please download and install it too! [F4] UMP2 Party server will use ALL these maps.

If you already have original UMP2 and need ONLY updates, then you can download Updates 1,2,3,4,5 and Update6 for UMP2 here.
Updates should be unpacked (with any unzip program, or free 7zip) to temporary place. Then, from that place run executable installer.
After installation UMP2 eats almost 5GB of disk space, and contains over 14 single player maps, 480 survivor/dm/tdm maps, 37 evac maps, 18 overrun maps and 14 maps for tdm.
After running AVP Launcher (avp2.exe), instead of pressing "play" you need to press "options" and add
-rez UMP2 to command line.
Make sure that "Always specify these command-line parameters" check box is checked.
Then press "OK" to save changes.
