Map DM-Crane has been removed because has visual glitches, it's messed up after all.
Map CTF-Face is no longer available because has miss-balanced A.I. setup at team-triggers and BlueBase is borked with BlockAll actors since forever. I did not see them in voting history so I think these are not that suitable for Monster Gaming purpose.

I will check MapRaider for other better maps that can be used as replacements.

Edit: Added one - continuing checking
Server has been updated with Map DM-Aleph signed "Joar 'Qbic' Lillerust" which doesn't need any patch so far.

Server Update:
Added Map MH-Purgatorium[final] for MonsterHunt game-types running here. Map was not a charm in default format so new patch files are loaded too in testing stage and then I'll explain a bit what changes are operated.
Redirect is completed with LZMA file for XC Players because map file is big and download is way smaller in newer archive format.

Trashes CTF-Face and DM-Crane have been added by the automated recovery tool so I went to remove them again and updating maps lists for getting rid of them from auto-voting. If this recovery circus will continue, next time I'll do what I did with the rest of "trash recovery" subject because we can dodge from having EPIC's borks and using better stuff. Another time maybe I'll patch a bit CTF-Face but not very soon I'm guessing...

As another change, I was trying a bit of love for this:

Code: Select all

ScriptWarning: PulseGun MH-Purgatorium[final].PulseGun3 (Function Botpack.PulseGun.SuggestAttackStyle:0014) Accessed None
ScriptWarning: PulseGun MH-Purgatorium[final].PulseGun3 (Function Botpack.PulseGun.SuggestAttackStyle:001C) Accessed None
ScriptWarning: PulseGun MH-Purgatorium[final].PulseGun3 (Function Botpack.PulseGun.SuggestAttackStyle:002A) Accessed None
For the rest I think I'll setup something which I have at home, I'll try to figure how do works after changes operated...

Changes time.
MonsterHunt grounds have been updated with map MH-LongCorridor_a. I don't have details about map, if this is the first from these versions or not. Definitely in normal instances an admin intended to have quality stuff will not deal too much with this... however, because we do have some patch plugins/modules/packages ready for testing due to technology from nowadays, map is now available and pretty playable even without "auto-healing" type mods. Patching notes will go in NavAdder thread.

New Update.
A DM map has been added wearing name DM-Hightitude_1_3 because original name was DM-Hightitude, and after updating to version 1.3, HellKeeper has forgot to rename public file released and probably this will head to problems.
Map it's compatible with multiple DM games running here and has a good game flow - I wish you a happy death in XAN's company (if XAN wants to play with you... :lol: ), or just kill him with no mercy...

MH map lists updated - temporary or permanent if this update it's good.
I've loaded a map self-made for secondary testing containing MyLevel Assets which I was describing last time just for setting them in "practice" directly mapped. It's called "Seasons Battling" in LevelInfo and map-file is called MH-Those_Seasons_Ns. Has also a bit of action not only assets for "rental" in other Levels.

A main update: Reason - players using long way rather than short way :? - adding UTCmds - which I will modify someday because it has an USELESS Super.PostBeginPlay as usual, these tools adding bits of processing for no purpose.
I HAVE NEVER understood what is that hard to bind a single key for MapVote rather than a "TeamSay !v" or "TeamSay !vote"
I have done years ago in my client a console command set input m mutate bdbmapvote votemenu. ANYTIME when I press m key, mapvote it's opening properly and quickly. Do we really need a noob player-guide after 19 years of UT99, or a G00gle Search Manual in searching WEB for information ?

Team-Changes commands are disabled - in MonsterHunt games there is no need for any team-change, these being UNI-TEAM games. Amazingly, actor-mutator was there in server but I added configurable INI file as well because this mod has an INI file.

Repository update:
In last map which I was planning to solve I could see some addiction for BPak package. Due to dumb values and errors solved, this package won't allow conforming to a new generation causing net borks. It was updated with another one in a clean compilation Gen 1 so it will mismatch geniuses uncaching files. For your comfort and less errors caused by this mess it's better to play with package sent by server forgetting your un-cached crap. A few client errors cannot be solved with a conformed one. Getting rid of these errors means a package change NOT OLD bugged sitting in client.

In future I'll try to figure if other errors will occur toward this package which is used by not a single map - Once again -> Do NOT UnCache this mess.
XC_Players - DO NOT SET XC_Engine for automatic package uncaching - this it's not a good practice.

Server has being updated with a reworked map said MH-NotScrewedMonsters - as title is recommending it's about STOCK creatures (and only a single new type added - Barbie has credit here) a bit reskinned and tweaked. Initial Level was garbage including MyLevel Assets - now it should be fixed, the rest of UT borks are not that visible in this server because some stock resources have been updated.
