Senior Member
Alles wird gut! sagt schon eine uns nicht unbekannte Gestalt, wenn sie nicht danach gefragt wird :)weg)...

* Maplists
* The old maplist system has been replaced with an entirely new one, which is configured through UTMapLists.ini, this allows mods using custom .ini files to have map cycles setup from the ingame menus
- To recover the old server maplist settings, you need to open UTGame.ini and go to the [UTGame.UTGame] section, then for each 'GameSpecificMapCycles' entry you need to find (or create) an entry in 'GameProfiles' under [UTGame.UTMapListManager] in UTMapLists.ini, which has a 'GameClass' value that matches the 'GameClassName' value in 'GameSpecificMapCycles'.
Then you need to find the maplist in UTMapLists.ini which is specified by 'MapListName' value in the 'GameProfiles' entry, (e.g: [DMMapList UTMapList]), and then you must manually transfer each map name in 'GameSpecificMapCycles' to the maplist in UTMapLists.ini.
For example, Maps=("DM-Arsenal","DM-Biohazard" in 'GameSpecificMapCycles' would become: [DMMapList UTMapList] Maps=(Map="DM-Arsenal" Maps=(Map="DM-Biohazard"
* Configuration options for [UTGame.UTMapListManager]:
- GameProfiles: This is a list which is used to define custom game type settings (mainly for game voting), options include:
o GameClass: The FULL class name of the gametype, including package name as well as class name (e.g. "UTGame.UTDeathMatch"
o GameName: The name that is displayed on the vote menu when selecting a gametype (e.g. "Deathmatch", "Warfare - No Orbs"
o MapListName: The name of the maplist that this game profile will use (e.g. "WARMapList"
o Options: Additional URL options which are used when switching to this gametype (e.g. "?WarmupTime=60"
o Mutators: Mutators to be loaded for this gametype (e.g. "UTGame.UTMutator_LowGrav,UTGame.UTMutator_Instagib"
o ExcludedMuts: Mutators which are disallowed for this gametype (e.g. "UTMutator_Instagib,UTMutator_Slomo"
o bIsTeamGame: Specifies whether or not the current gametype is a team game (used internally for game voting)
o MapReplayLimit: The number of matches which must pass before any one map can be played again
o ActiveGameProfileName: The 'GameProfiles' entry which is currently active; mainly used by the game during runtime
o PlayIndex: A value used for keeping track of when maps were last played, represents the total number of games played
o AutoStripOptions: A list of URL options which are automatically removed upon map change (e.g. "LinkSetup"
- bAllowKickVoting: Enable/Disable kick voting
- bAnonymousKickVoting: If true, then the voters name is not shown when performing a kick vote (except to admins)
- MinKickVotes: The minimum number of votes required in order to kick a player"]

Erscheinungstermin: 5. März 2009

Der Download wird ca. 800 MB gross werden und soll angeblich nur in Verbindung mit einem "Patch 2.0", ergo kann man ihn (den Patch) gleichzeitig mit dem Pack am 5.März 2009 erwarten.

Das wird ein Download...

Wer zu den Muts und Gametypen genaueres wissen will, schaut bei UTZone nach, die haben dazu ein wenig übersetzt, was ich nicht einfach so abkupfern möchte...
Die Jungs bei Epic/Midway scheinen tatsächlich Gas zu geben :D

Sollte der kommende Donnerstag tatsächlich als Wiedergeburt von UT3 in die Geschichte eingehen?

Wohlwollend nehmen wir die letzten beiden Beta-Changelogs zum oben erwähnten Patch 2.0 zur Kenntnis:

Ohkeh... Die Changelogs machen Mut. Wenn sie sich zur Zeit so sehr auf Client-seitige Problembehebung einschiessen, scheint es keine größeren Bugs mehr zu geben, die echt wichtig sind :lachweg...

Wie sieht es aus, bekommen wir am 5.3. ein UT3-Abend hin? Natürlich mit Patch und Titanpack und NicNacs und Jever...

- Fixed AVRiL rare case where it dealt double damage on hit.
Damit gehören hoffentlich die Onehit-Raptorkills der Vergangenheit an. Die waren alles andere als rar...
Wie sieht es aus, bekommen wir am 5.3. ein UT3-Abend hin? Natürlich mit Patch und Titanpack und NicNacs und Jever...
- Patch + Pack - hoffen wir auf ausreichend Mirrors
- Jever - vorhanden
- NicNacs - Nope, nehm ich halt Käsebällchen

Bleibt die Frage...wie aufwendig ist es, den Server auf 2.0 zu bringen? Bzw. kommt der Patch überhaupt für Linux?
Es lädt, ich hab zwar kein Jever da (dafür noch 'n bischen Flens glaub ich), Fresskrams hol' ich mir noch, aber sonst... ;)
Denke heute gibt das nix, bin grad erst nach Haus und habe den Download eben erst gestartet. Schau mal wie er so läuft...
Update geladen und installiert - funktioniert so weit alles.
Bin auch auf unseren Server gekommen, wir können also dort spielen.
Wuaaaahhh..gerade erst den Fred gesehen :(..... bin aber am Laden und hoffe, das wird heute noch was :)

***Edit um 21:18***

So, ich habe es! Der Download war gestern Abend gegen 23:30 zu Ende. Ich habs danach nicht mal mehr installiert, nur PC aus und ins Bett^^
Download ging schneller wie gedacht, in knapp anderthalb Stunden war alles geladen :download.

Installation lief auch ohne Probleme, nur gefunden habe ich von euch Recken niemanden, auch auf dem UT2K4 war nix los :sleep
Wir waren auf einem anderen Server, da ja die neuen Maps bei uns nicht installiert sind.
Füge mal ein paar von uns zu deinen "Freunden" im Spiel hinzu...
