Checked 469d + MonsterHunt613... and Bots.
I got some new stuff...

Code: Select all

Log: Breadth path list overflow from PathNode40
DevPath: 2000 navigation nodes searched from PathNode40!
The thing is that map has 251 Navigation Actors and... 543 ReachSpecs aka Paths...
Too simple is now too complex ? If map has only 251 nodes how comes that were checked over 2000 Nodes ?

I tested/played previously the same map in my private external server 440 + XC_Engine 24 and.... XC_MonsterHunt. I did not see any errors for hours...
After doing more extra checks concerning more poorly coded MH versions probably I'll drop it in public - I'll think about it. First version was indeed just some plain MH garbage but... I did some polishing and... it looks like 469d and newer MH version are having other opinions concerning simplicity...
Or... it happened in the moment when I quit the game - engine was still processing something during exiting stage ?

The same map - subject Queen class.
Queen to me was badly messed up by EPIC's "idea" - dumbly tele-fragging monsters and even eliminating themselves. I worked time ago for fixing that misery and here I see a roll-back. When in my server I could gain some extra-score for killing them - pretty challenging, here I killed only the last one because the rest of them got vanished during their lousy teleporting habits.
To me it seems that a potential final version of 469 patch will need the same fixes more or less using a XC_Engine if such a version will be available and functional.
If I'll be out of these extra-options which I'm already using... then I simply can forget about any update. A bunch of tweaks and fixes are simply out without XC_Engine. This is not what I need.

Info-bump
Higor has sent me privately a version of XC_Engine v26 targeting UT Patch 469d. This way I could have some MH party using XC_Monsterhunt which I've done in past years...
A random alleged "map" which was a misery disregarding what are saying hands clappers, which I polished and applying some fixes at those dumb settings and properties was a candidate for tests - I played map tens of times without a problem and then I picked it for testing.
The deal goes as follows. I hit Queens Area capturing their attention over me. They started Teleporting as they usually do when enemy is not around. There things went into a big noise, their teleporting noise went very loud - any they were really far. I don't remember other monsters making such noise. All was spam, I could not hear even guns fire... I don't get what was about that Teleporting noise but right now this way is no way... Me one I don't play only CTF and DM. The patch looks nice, it is featured, XC_Engine seems to work correctly but at sound subject things for me are screwed up. The two drivers which are working for me Galaxy and OpenAL have the same results and honestly I don't like OpenAL how does it render sounds. The rest of sound drivers are missing, I'll look if something is available. Either way I don't understand why missing options are listed for being chosen but... that's it.

The very good thing is that now I can use my builder in Editor, it seems that a few checks were not having any problem.

While I was doing some checks concerning Textures... Builder checker has crashed Editor while was trying to reveal some properties of Textures...
It's understandable that game has to be wrapped for Windows 10 + but altering initial integrity it's not such a good idea - it should be compiled with newer compilers and nothing else... I did big Textures without to mess up rendering...
Let's see what we have in 436... Recommended "shouldn't be modified"...

And, of course this was NEVER MODIFIED... Suuuure. Somewhere I posted an image with a Texture that was unavailable for 436 allowing player to see through that "wall". What a coincidence...

Disregarding what EPIC asked, Bitmap object has now another formula... I don't get what has to do with "Windoze" 10 compatibility ? Clearly what was not as target to be changed... suddenly went changed... Tell me the story with backward compatibility when Texture has unknown format for 436...
