Title: Preview of the new patch!
Post by: Nightmare85 on Mon 09.02.2009 19:33:45
Hey,
I thought it is worth to create an extra thread about this ;)
Here is a preview of the 1st beta of the new patch, called 2.0.

First, the splash screen has completely been changed.
It's now black and more different.
(http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/4598/splashcz2.jpg)


The main menu looks kinda different.
You _Dark_ guys may like it^^
It is not always the same menu as you can see.
Ah and you now have to double click on any menu (that sucks if you ask me - I hope it will be changed in the final version):
(http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/3922/ut32009020914042240oj7.jpg)
(http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/8020/ut32009020917344279qs3.jpg)


Epic said the new patch will bring more graphics options ingame.
There are indeed a lot of new graphics options:

(http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/4082/ut32009020914050351gd1.jpg)


Here you have some other menu screenshots with some new options:
(As you can see, 2 new modes will come - last screenshot of this part).

(http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/4456/ut32009020915303290nb2.jpg)


Ok, the new weapon locker system is now better.
You can pickup weapons as often as you want but with 2 conditions:
The 1st it will take time until it respawns again (I remember something with 25 seconds) and 2nd you cannot pickup full ammo.
The Link Gun's limit will still be 100.
If you find separate ammo, it will be full of course!
(Would be too easy if you run to all weapon lockers in your base to have full ammo).
Another great thing is that "setbind key throwweapon" now works.
You can throw away all weapons except your hammer.
Perfect if you have the Redeemer but don't want to use it because another team mate would need it more than you.
(Not sure if it works for the Deployables too).
Here some screenshots:
(http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/3028/ut32009020914155550hf8.jpg)
(http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/2759/ut32009020915171456kd6.jpg)
(http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/6715/ut32009020915172685we7.jpg)


The problem with the invisible players on the scoreboard should be fixed as well:
(http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/314/ut32009020914195200yg3.jpg)
(http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/9403/ut32009020914195640zm3.jpg)
(http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/631/ut32009020914200489mv1.jpg)


The nodes in Warfare will be changed too.
The 1st screenshot may look as always, but I'm sure it's still different.
(I guess the screenshot is not very good).
The other one should be definitely different.
You now see the name of the node at the upper and lower part.
(I did not compare it with 1.3 but I'm sure it's new):
(http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/9761/ut32009020914565689ux9.jpg)
(http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/7454/ut32009020916505568ie4.jpg)


The Link Gun has a new effect.
You should see it here:
(http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/3395/ut32009020914232204ba4.jpg)


The Manta crouch exploit is fixed.
It's very difficult to get under the water.
So I would say it's finally fixed!
(http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/7049/ut32009020914274904mv4.jpg)


I have the feeling Epic are actually trying to fix the Goliath and barricade issue.
It seems to be impossible to drive backwards through the barricades.
(I hope it's not old^^).
(http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/9332/ut32009020915351889ml9.jpg)
(http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/2817/ut32009020915354250gq4.jpg)


UT3 should support Client Demo recording now.
I tested it (needed some trials to get the command).
However, it did not work.
No idea if I have to be online:
(http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/5083/ut32009020915432734yl8.jpg)
(http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/6574/ut32009020916224067vl4.jpg)


Names of enemy players are now visible in matches (not sure if only DeathMatches):
(http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/5333/ut32009020916122153ml9.jpg)


During a match, you can easily send a message to a player by double clicking on his/her/its^^ name:
(http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/1143/ut32009020917411534yf7.jpg)
(http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/4808/ut32009020917411665ue5.jpg)


Some other things:
The following bugs of my list are confirmed as fixed until now:
(* means look the note at the end)
06. Some player names are not displayed on scoreboard
18. Auto taunts still do not work properly
20. Manta crouch exploit
28. Announcer gives wrong or bad pieces of advice*
32. Nightshade sometimes shows wrong mines in its weapon tab
47. Redeemer ceiling bug
48. Picking up weapon attachments while shooting gives an unfair advantage

*28: Very cheap because Epic have just removed all "attack the..." announces.

Around 23 bugs are confirmed as NOT fixed.
The rest is unkown.
A new bug comes with the patch, the Avril reload exploit.
It is possible to shoots Avril very fast just by getting on the hoverboard (or getting in a vehicle) during the shots. The whole reload animation will be skipped and you can shoot very fast Avrils.
The Manta hurricane flight has NOT been fixed now and the Impact Hammer jump with Manta too.
Very strange. The Goliath's new health is now 900!
The new patch replaces the current OpenAL32.dll with another (simpler) version which won't let the game crash on X-Fi cards. However, since there is a work-around for users with X-Fi + X-Ram cards, I recommend to rename the wrap_oal.dll (408 KB) to OpenAL32.dll.
(But not now, because now it is as it should be - they only change it with patch 2.0 - cheap trick again^^)

Edit
I've changed the title and fixed some grammar mistakes.

OK, Greets :D

Nice preview Nightmare85!
I like the new menu look... its so beautyful _dark_ =)

But some change may influence heavily the gaming strategies (picking up avril multiple times on Sandstorm or Containment). But well, it really seems to be 2.0 and not just patched to 1.4.
Maybe in the end we get something like 1.9  xxxshifty.gif


UT3 should support Client Demo recording now.

Sure, else your pc is the server and there were no problems to record a server side demo.

I'm glad that you got your beta testing version too in the end.
If you hurry you can find some bugs before they publish it.  :)

What about the server browser? any news there yet?
I hope they improve it a lot!

What about sorting in message and friends list. At the moment i cant find any friends cause they cant be sorted alphabetically or anything. I miss the old buddy list, it was better.
And i guess you still have to waste several seconds logging in everytime you want to play.

Any new maps or skins or will this patch only be bugfixes and improvements to crappy stuff?

The UI in general still looks a lot like a console game to me but i guess i can live with it.

No idea, sorry.
I have no access to the server browser because I'm completely offline.
(Nothing is available).

Only bug fixes.
New maps or mods will come with the Titan Pack which will come after the patch.

Post by: ArcAne on Mon 09.02.2009 22:27:35
Already seen that and more ^^

I'll just say this, do not let epic see it.

Epic are pissed off at these image leaks and what not.

I guess what im trying to say is, dont go post galore about this patch on epic forums or any other forum for that matter.

Epic deleted EVERY post to do with the patch, even made admins of other forums delete the content.



Title: Re: (Small) preview of the new patch!
Post by: Nightmare85 on Mon 09.02.2009 22:33:34
I know I know^^
I already wrote a PM to the Epic admins (feedback) and they said this release is not for public but they will look into my post (bug list and the whole feedback ;)).
But I'm disappointed and I thought they've made a bigger progress.
Beta 1 sounds like it could be very difficult to finish the patch this month.
Well, and they have to fix some bugs which are in the changelog and they have to fix the bugs which the patch creates!
(I only found the Avril reload exploit as already said and they should know it and my complete bug list because 2 Admins replied to my message ;) )
Now they can't deny that!!   xxxras.gif

Post by: ArcAne on Mon 09.02.2009 23:03:12
Maybe epic realised its too late to contain it

But they are still pissed off lol because it was a Pre Beta release that no one was meant to have.

But as you said, i dont think it will be out this month, or maybe not even next :(

Hopefully intime for easter.

Just one question:
Why do so many people complain about the UI (the old and new)?
What exactly lets it look like a console game?

BTW: I've changed the title and fixed some grammar mistakes.^^

Edit
False alarm:
Nothing has changed with the Goliath and the yellow barricades.
I've checked 1.3 right now and it seems to be absolutely the same!

Just one question:

Its look causes eye cancer to me, but the very reason why it looks like a console game menu is the fisheye fading of the menue entries. You can't just move the pointer to the label you'd like to click and than click quickly. When you are there the labels shift and you may nearly hit the wrong one if you don't look carefully... you'd need to have Atomrolfs aiming performance for this menue.

I don't have no good aim and have to scroll trough the points with the mouse wheel, whenever possible. That is more or less like ppl do with their controllers on their consoles.

 xxxlaugh.gif

Ok, I see^^
Well, it seems this issue should be fixed as well.
Every entry has its own space and it's not important where exactly you click in this space.
The fonts do not change as it was before.
The only thing, which I don't like, is the clicking.
Right now on 1.3 and previous versions you have to click 1 time to enter a sub menu.
Now you have to click twice - I don't like it!
I hope it will stay to 1 click.
Yes, you are right, the old (current^^) menu is a little bit too exact.
The new menu should definitely be more user-friendly!

Server information is greatly increased, there is also a + sign next to servers with bots.
You can now check Load Custom Characters Always = No demo guy
There are 2 new characters Kana and Nova (From the xbox 360 version)
The patch will include every achievement to do with the titan pack, but not any new maps (All titan pack achievements will ask you to download the titan pack)
Link Gun Beam now leaves burn marks
HUD is slightly changed
AI is improved
However in the leaked patch, there was the new map photos you can find in Unreal Editor, they look awesome
(about 18 new maps)
No new weapons or vehicles were found

Kana (With helmet)

Also heard about, here's some new content:


New Gametypes

    * Titans

Looks like you have to fight enormous monsters (looks like Mordsspass or Radarfox ...only in the game obviously^^)


(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_DVRcrS9SRbE/SY81rXniGtI/AAAAAAAAAg8/8Hj-eKe0EpA/s1600/titans.png)


    * Greed,
    * Betrayal

...some guy thinks Greed may be awesome, but read yourself:

"The most interesting one at this point is "Greed", which seems to be the Unreal version of "Harvester" from Quake III Team Arena. You play this on CTF or VCTF maps and I think skulls are dropped from killed enemies. Goal would be to collect as many as possible of them and take them into the enemies' base (or your own, I'm not sure)"
Quoted from: this site here (http://touriantourist.blogspot.com/2009/02/titan-pack-infos-content-revealed.html)

New Maps:

Most important vCTF


PS, you know Rails? Its the map we played on MSF server this weekend, that one that noone of us had before.

Just press f5 to refresh the page or look at: this site here (http://touriantourist.blogspot.com/2009/02/titan-pack-infos-content-revealed.html)

Pay attention at the autors note at the end:
"Edit: It seems, like the thread was deleted. The original author stated, that Epic asked him to delete the thread. Posts in the official forums revealing any of the Titan Pack's content got deleted as well. It looks like this is still a big secret, so don't tell anyone. :D"

Respect their work - if they ask for it we'll move it from the public area. ...but til than enjoy the previews .^^


I still have no idea what Betryal may be, but here's the intro video (was there already in the campaign, but its called Betryal too):

I suspect its the final part of the campaign, you'll have to fight Malcom.

Epic adding Steam Achievements with upcoming UT3 patch - need to reinstall the game:  finger1

"The Steam achievements will only be available to those that installed the game through Valve's digital distribution platform, though the other changes will be available to all.
Any CD key should be eligible for activation, including... Also note that the activation will require a new installation of the game."

No thanx, no need to reinstall. Happy if the rest is fixed, no need for achievements.

Title: Re: Preview of the new patch!
Post by: VegasKill on Tue 10.02.2009 14:31:34
UT2k4 CTF was very popular, far many ppl played than in UT3. And the reason is: ...only 5 maps for CTF in UT3, 3 are the bigges crap ever seen. Strident / Coret are the only acceptable ones.


Title: Re: Preview of the new patch!
Post by: Heggi on Tue 10.02.2009 15:22:17
Reflection is a good ctf map too :)

I was surprised that they left out UT's main character: malcolm.

Greed is not that new it was in ut2004 or was it 2003 and it wasnt that fun.
The other gamemode with the monsters sounds like invasion from 2003 and 2004.
Why didnt they add bombing run yet? are they slow or just busy?

I hope for a lots of new maps. on the servers i played in ut2003 and 2004 with custom maps there were at least 3 gamemodes with 100 maps each to choose from...
that was better than 6 vctf maps and only a few more ctf maps and barely no new gamemodes or good old ones...

I still play 2004 every now and then and i'd play 2003 too if not the servers i prefered existed.

Title: Re: Preview of the new patch!
Post by: Nightmare85 on Tue 10.02.2009 16:49:09
Just a question:
That means all these changes:
New Gametypes:

    * Greed
    * Betrayal
    * Titans


New Maps:

    * DM-EdenInc
    * DM-KBarge
    * DM-Nanoblack (could be CTF-Nanoblack)
    * DM-OceanRelic
    * DM-Stall
    * DM-Turbine
    * CTF-LostCause
    * CTF-Morbid
    * CTF-Shaft
    * VCTF-Rails
    * VCTF-SuspenseNecris
    * VCTF-Stranded
    * WAR-ColdHarbor
    * WAR-Confrontation
    * WAR-DarkMatch (could be DM-DarkMatch)
    * WAR-DowntownNecris
    * WAR-Hostile
   
   

New Characters:

    * Kana (Twin Souls)
    * Nova (Liandri)
will not be in patch 2.0, yeah?
That will be the Titan Pack!?

Why they made so many new ctf maps? Noone plays ctf! The most guys playing vctf/warfare/tdm/dm and duel BUT NOT CTF  xxxlaugh.gif .
Maybe that's the reason why they do it. ;)
I can understand that they don't like it if no one plays CTF.
They hope they can change it with these new things.
However, I won't play it because I just don't like this game mode.
And well, even new game modes will come, so the chance that I play CTF is very low^^

3 new VCTF maps are fully ok if you ask me ;)
Maybe there won't be that many Suspense only servers, just Suspense_Necris only servers... lol.



P.S. I hope the Titan Pack will not be bigger than ~700 MB because I want to burn UT3 with patch 2.0 and the Titan Pack on a new DVD+R DL ;)

Title: Re: Preview of the new patch!
Post by: ArcAne on Tue 10.02.2009 18:26:12
To clear things up

Kana and Nova WILL be in the patch
Titans maybe a gamemode... but basically Titan is a transformation that you do (No one knows how but in the Pre Beta release there is a Bind for Titan Transformation default to "O") and there are apperently Titan Weapons when you transform into one

Maps/Vehicles/Weapons/Gametypes will be in the Titan Pack (I assume the Titan Transformation will work just from the patch, but obviously there is no telling yet)

So basically with the patch your getting a new UI/HUD/NetworkingUpdates/ConsoleUpdates/Weapon+VehicleUpdates and generic fixes along with 2 new characters. (Achievements also)

No, it's not released.
There was a link @http://epicgames.com/download/
but they removed it quickly.

However, I test this patch only offline.
It's not for public use so I don't want to use it online.
And it has some huge bugs as well^^

Yeah, and it will be the same as now  xxxw00t.gif  xxxw00t.gif  xxxw00t.gif
I remember Test Drive Unlimited:
1 or 2 weeks before the first and last patch got released, there was a leaked version online.
It was crap.
Atari and Co. wrote it's completely different compared to the final and they said that no one should use it.
After 1 or 2 weeks the patch was official.
It was absolutely the same and it was really big crap, hell, there were sooo many people complaining but nothing has changed.
Let's hope it will not be the same with UT3 Patch 2.0 ;)

The Titan Pack will be released on this day and it needs the patch 2.0 ;)
I guess the patch will come 1 week earlier.

Full information about the complete content of the Titan Pack:
- new weapons
- new vehicle
- new maps
- new mutators

Yesterday, I tried the Patch 2.0 Beta 1d and it seemed to be as same as the 1.
Same bugs :(
I really have the feeling the final won't be that different.
Manta glitching is still possible + 2 Avrils per second without Berserker :(
There are also other issues but I had no time and mood to check it after I saw these 2 bugs which I've mentioned right now.

During shots you either get on and off your hoverboard or you quickly change the weapons (as fast as possible).
You will be able to shoot 2 Avrils per second (I did not take the time, but it's very fast!). - without berserk!

Greets


Title: Re: Preview of the new patch!
Post by: VegasKill on Sun 22.02.2009 14:41:42
Never noticed that... I noticed that going on the hoverboard sometimes stops the avril reload animation.

...Stil some things that really are annoying won't get fixed with the patch (as far as I know):

It concerns my fav vehicles, Nemesis and Hellbender. The Hellbender Turret keeps the zoomed turret sniping view if you change fast to the driving mode and drive on. Sometimes when switching to the HB turret mode while the HB didn't stop completely (press 2 while driving) the turrent won't shoot... there is only the empty animation+sound, but you won't fire.

The nemesis doesn't recognize always the 3 firing modes. That means that it often fires at a slow rate even at the max height mode, where it should fire +50% as fast. The only thing that helps is reducing height again and go to max height again. But that resets your viewing angle... the chance is to miss someone while fixing that bug this way ;(


Title: Re: Preview of the new patch!
Post by: ArcAne on Sun 22.02.2009 14:47:32
I found a serious bug and other people get it too.

I have B1d and when i exit UT3 (same happens for the people i know who have it too) your CPU usage will still be concentrated above 50% (Dependant on what kind of CPU you have, Higher for less cores and around 50% for more cores etc) because UT3.exe still runs in your task manage, you have to alt+ctrl+del and terminate UT3 manually.

I thought Epic didn't fix those bugs that were there also in 1.3, my fault, sorry.  computertrouble.gif

Titans is already active on some servers!
As I tryed to follow 2 ppl yesterday it refused me and asked for "an updated version of UT3". xD
...But I'll wait for the full release.

Some other sites had in their news that Titans will need a fresh UT3 installation.  :'(
The "Titans" expansion, that probably comes "just" with new maps and 2 character (I hope there will be also the final fight against Malcom... so 3 character  embarrassed2 ) and some more stuff. Why should that need a reinstall?
The greet, titans and betryal gamemodes are already there (and playable, as Arcane showed us ^^) with just the beta-patch.
Does Titans maybe not force me to reinstall the game, or did you need to do so if you installed the beta-patch?
If its "only" for the optional steam-installation-achievements, I could live on also without them!  ;)

Beta 2 will be out later this week, hopefully with manta glitch and avril board glitch fixed, aswell as a few other minor issues.

You won't need a fresh install of UT3, it was probably on about if you was migrating to STEAM or something. its an "addon" pack, you just download and it extracts for you. The beta 1 was 304MB (This was the one released last thursday) The entire expansion weighs in at nearly a 1GB apparently.

Ill keep you all update  finger1

And for those that can not get to my forum to look at some screenshots, here is the bulk of them

The "Titan Transformation" notice

Nice screens.
Hmm but was there any difference between beta 1 and beta1d?
I just checked some things and it seemed to be the same as before.

1 GB would be perfect!
The expansion (pack+patch) must not be bigger than 1127,36 MB, because then I will get stress to burn it on a DVD+R DL (included the whole game) :D :D
I never use my originals for installing or playing.
Just for creating a backup (my current backup consists patch 1.2, so it's older).

BTW:
Patch 4 Beta2 changelist:
Quote
- Fixed number of combatants slider range.
- Fixed redeemer bug where redeemers impacting ceiling sometimes had explosion center imbedded in ceiling, affecting damage dealt.
- Fixed stinger alt-fire stops with 1 ammo.
- Added John Barrett (programming contractor), Michiel Hendriks (programming contractor), and Pancho Eekels (level design contractor) to credits.
- Fixed spectator choppiness when camera is following a player.
- Reduced non-warfare teleporter update range if bRealTimeCapture is false.
- Fix for rare stinger shard crash when shard tries to impale two overlapping dead bodies at the same time.
- Various localization fixes in all languages.
- Fixed flying manta exploit.
- Fixed duel match rules in scoreboard.
- Fixed exploit to damage own core/nodes with rocket turret.
- Fixed fast avril firing exploit.
- Fixed vehicle turret replication in demos.
- Fixed first person weapon display in demos.
- Fixed incorrect strings displayed in rare cases in friends interaction menu.
- Fixed player information on server browser history page not refreshing correctly.
- Fixed UT3 crash on Windows Server 2003 and XP 64.
- Fixed UT3 not shutting down properly when run as Steam application on Windows XP.
- Fixed choppiness when viewing client-side demo playback.
- Don't allow input processing during playback of client-side demos.
- Fixed SPMA camera crash during demo playback.
- Fixed demo playback log spam.
- Added DemoFF and DemoSlomo console commands. Can be bound to a key in UTInput.ini.

DemoFF toggles between 1x, 3.3x, and 10x fast forward.

DemoSlomo takes a float between 0.1 and 10 which adjusts playback speed by that factor.

- No spectating bar when spectating in first person.
- Fixed ping display in client-side demos
- Force vehicle physics updates during client-side demo playback

Patch 4 Beta 2 is out ;)

- Added John Barrett (programming contractor), Michiel Hendriks (programming contractor), and Pancho Eekels (level design contractor) to credits.

- Directly copied from another forum (post was created by me) -


Hey,
I've tested the patch too.
2 things:
(Thumbnails, just click for enlarging).


1) Fast Avril firing exploit:
The first is easy and very effective:
Shot an Avril-switch the weapons-shot an Avril. You have to switch the weapons quickly, but it is not really difficult. I tried it this kind:
Shot an Avril-switch to Rocket Launcher-switch to Longbow-shot an Avril. I just used the mouse wheel. You can see many Avrils:
(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/fast_avril_firing_exploit4_th.jpg) (http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/fast_avril_firing_exploit4.jpg)


The 2nd fast Avril firing exploit is not that effective.
Shot an Avril-throw away the Longbow-take the Longbow-Shot an Avril. You won't be able to shoot Avrils as fast as the 1st example, but it would still be faster than normal (shooting without exploits).
(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/fast_avril_firing_exploit1_th.jpg) (http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/fast_avril_firing_exploit1.jpg)(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/fast_avril_firing_exploit2_th.jpg) (http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/fast_avril_firing_exploit2.jpg)(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/fast_avril_firing_exploit3_th.jpg) (http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/fast_avril_firing_exploit3.jpg)


2) Manta crouch exploit:
It's forced to leave the water if it gets under the water.
However, there is a trick to get under the water. Just fly with the Manta from a high place, press and hold the crouch-button while beeing in air until it reaches the water. With a little bit luck, the Manta will be under the water without loosing health.
As you can see, I tried it from several places and highs:
(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water1_th.jpg) (http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water1.jpg)(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water2_th.jpg) (http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water2.jpg)(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water3_th.jpg) (http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water3.jpg)(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water4_th.jpg) (http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water4.jpg)(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water5_th.jpg) (http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water5.jpg)(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water7_th.jpg) (http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water7.jpg)

Well people that don't install the new patch will not have many servers to play on. For a start most people's servers (Including epics) are with Multiplay. The multiplay technicians are forcing 2.0 on EVERY server (Whether it be theirs/epics or Rented servers from people like me) Most server hosts will also be doing the same, there will only be a few 1.3 servers left. As i will only be playing 2.0 servers, i don't have to worry about some 1.3 or lower whizz kid trying to get in to the server, and even if they could, server side net code would prevent them from doing bugs anyway.

To keep the names of the pics you can use a free photobuket account. It has a nice uploader and just the url before the picture names will be that the one of your account.

I didn't understand most of the bugs, that were fixed, but these two, that you marked in red are vital, without a doubt :)

Right now, I've written this message to Epic:

-------------------------
Hello!
Congrats to the patch, I'm glad that your progress is very fast.

However, I think you should change these 3 things:

1) Female and Robot players grunt like men
Me and other players are sure you nearly fixed this issue with this patch (even with beta 1). The woman now sounds like a woman when she falls, gets shot etc.
The only issue is when she jumps from a not very high place and don't lose health.
Look, if I jump from here, it sounds like a man when she reaches the ground:
(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta3/female_grunt_men1.jpg)(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta3/female_grunt_men2.jpg)

(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta3/female_grunt_men4.jpg)(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta3/female_grunt_men3.jpg)

Sorry, I did not check it with Robots, no idea if it's the same.

2) The last fast Avril firing exploit
You've successfully fixed the other 2.
I'm sure you can fix this one as well.
Isn't it possible that the game "remembers" that the thrown Avril needs to get reloaded after picking up?
It would be enough that it just remembers the player who threw the Avril away.
As you can see, if a player looks at the ground and throw it away, he will pick up the weapon immediately and automatically.
Then he presses the button for the Avril and fires. It can be fast, much faster than normal shooting and unfair players will use it, definitely!
(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta3/throw_avril1.jpg)(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta3/throw_avril2.jpg)

3) Manta and water
In my last message I wrote that it's still possible to get with the Manta under water (with a lot of speed/power). I think it should be at least possible to set something like "If Manta touches (gets in contact with) water, then it should lose health". So it would not matter if a player gets it to be under water, because he won't be able to stay as long as he want.
(http://freenet-homepage.de/nightmare85_2/ut3/patch4beta2/manta_under_water7.jpg)

If I find any other issues, I will write again.
Thanks for reading and thanks for the very good work!

Greets

-------------------------

Let's hope they fix at least this Avril exploit.
It's no problem to throw it away, picking it up, switching to it and shooting.
This sounds like a long procedure but it's much faster than the normal shooting.
Lamers always will use it...

The other 2 things aren't that fatal^^
I hardly see any Mantas under water which camp.

it will take more then the half of the ppl to kickvote you, so i don't know if ur gonna get kicked :P
just play like u always are with 1 profile ^^ :D

I am still sad about the tank health and the kickvote. Kargo will be much harder with a 900 hp tank.
Yea it will be harder to kill the tank cuz usually after scorpion self destruct guys load 3 rockets or shoot link gun while still in the air, then they are killed by tank and tank also dies. Now it will survive with ~100 hp :p

I also agree, that kick-vote can be not that good for high-skilled players...


Title: Re: Preview of the new patch!

Kickvote will be disabled on all 3 of our servers. As before, if there is a problem, !admin is your friend.

Our suspense server is full every day :P

Our Multi map server is empty most of the time.. Overclock steals all our players even though we have less ping and admins that will ban n00b cheaters and such...

My server is paid for yes, but is running suspense only (To get moneys worth out of it) till this coming thursday, which will then play Greed. You can find information on our servers here:

It's essential how many players have to vote to kick some1. I think when their are 10 players and 4 voting Yes you dont get kicked (logic^^). I think more than 50% have to vote Yes to kick some1.

i see _Dark_ times for ut3.

this patch will kill it a bit more again.

would be better if they stopped after 1.2 or 1.3

a patch cant bring more life into a game. it can be good so the players stay or it can be bad so many players leave.

i dont think that someone buy ut3 just because he read in the Gamestar '2.0 Released'
it wont bring more users :p

Post by: VegasKill on Sat 28.02.2009 22:53:34
If titans would be a sales version maybe some new users would get it, but nearly noone would update from 1.3... This way, as a free download, I guess SpIitter is right - noone reading "Cumputer - Bild" will go for the UT3 and Titans 2.0.

But Fox may have be as he mentioned more life in UT3. Many ppl turned rather inactive due to lack of "official" gamemodes and custom maps on the servers.
So as a compromise: Titans brings life in UT3 by keeping it alive.

Edit: SpIitter has it already, gj^^ I wait the few days til the final is out.

Don't be that sure!
People read and read in forums (or other sites) and they could change their mind about the game.
And since UT3 is now more integrated in Steam, there could be something like a "free week-end" for testing the game.
Not sure, just maybe - I don't know if only Valve make things like that.

But well, I don't really need more players.
I know a lot of good players and if they still, I'm happy ;)

Kickvote Default percentage is 51% Positive for a Kick

This can be changed

So when splitter is playing, i just quickly set it to 1% and BOOM

Lol only joking :P


here is default settings of kickvote straight from my UTVote.ini

bAllowKickVoting=True
bAnonymousKickVoting=True
MinKickVotes=3
KickVotePercentage=51
InitialVoteDelay=30
InitialVoteTransferTime=12
