New version request
« on: Sunday, September 03 2017, 12:34:03 CEST »
I went on TR Today (because the good servers are empty) and they have this look:

I think it's supposed to be like UT4. Can FFM have it please, some cool bits e.g. red/blue shock and damage amount shows on screen

It still wont make the team balancer work properly though  :93:

Its just the same 3.223 version with a few added cosmetic extras, and i doubt TR will share tbh.
One of the oldest and still possibly the worst UT player of all time. :).

I tested their version tonight. It's very nice work and I can't imagine how many hours they needed to make all these modifications to the game. If their devs ready this post :  :sign0098:

Here is the list of things I noticed:

1/ HP and adren info displayed with new look + bigger colour to get a quick status of your team:

2/ New shockriffle shots colours (blue for blue team, red for red team) to help you know if it's an opponent firing behind the corner:

3/ Damages count is displayed when you hit someone:

There must be other details I forgot to talk about but these are the main ones.

More info :
- they have 1018 zounds....and they use same Zound mutator version that we had before I removed it (v5.5). I wonder if they have zound lag spikes or not...Anyway, it took me several minutes to download their zound packs (with some funny names I really liked :))
- they have the "screen sender 2017" mutator which must be a version they enhanced themselves.

So yeah, it looks pretty cool ! Anyway, like Tweeka, I doubt they will share it...the developer was talking to players through webadmin and repeated several times that it was his work for this version and that he does what he wants on his server. Well, I can check code licence of original TAM and ComboWhore version and other mutators they used to make their own version (they have not written all from scratch) but it would be nasty. Last point : I saw several display bugs during the two games I spectated and I read many annoying comments from players that don't stop asking for modifications on server...the webadmin looked very angry about that.

Still, it's a very good work from developers.   :PDT_Armataz_01_37:
