I faced a few problems when I wanted to compress my files to .uz2 so I decided to make a simple and light stand alone tool that does not require any external program nor pointing to ur ut/kf install and that is pretty simple and fast to use.

So here we go :

http://www.roxservers.com/KF_compress_tool.zip
mirror: http://www.embedupload.com/?d=1WVLG5CXWA


Code:
Instructions
************

0) Unzip (thats obvious but never overestimate end user knowledge ;))
1) Place the files you want to compress into the "compress" folder
2) Launch "Start compression.bat"
3) Your files are compressed and the operation log pops up. Get your files from the "compress" folder.
4) Upload the compressed files to your fast download web space
5) If your server was not using fast downloads, stop it, edit killingfloor.ini replacing "UseCompression=False" by "UseCompression=True" without the quotes ofc
The tool has been tested on both windows XP and 2000 systems by myself and I was told it works on vista64 too.
Please report any bug you may encounter here.

Or simply use UT2003Compress which will give you a sexy GUI. (the UCC.exe is in your killingfloor/system dir if you've installed the KF SDK or the dedicated server)

Very nice tool! I actually just downloaded the ucc.exe file from my KF server and used that locally but this tool seems like it would work great too!

thx, thats what I used to do and basically I just automated the task via a batch to make this simple tool. It includes the minimum necessary files to run ucc.exe, compress command is preconfigured in the bat so user just have to put his files and double click.
