UT Starterpack

Post by Seraphim_prime_{HoF} » Thu May 24, 2018 5:41 pm

Greetings feared HOF members! and all the good people in the community; im sorry for not posting very often, things aren't going smoothly for me at the present, but at least im glad i'm able to visit the servers every day or two. since many new players come on the servers, and in need of drivers updates, i thought i'd be nice if it's possible to create a shortcut on the website, sort of a starterpack, where new players can get video device's update, maybe a skin and a voicepack... with instruction on how to install the files, in case there wasn't a hof member there to help. let me know what you think about this suggestion. peace!

That is a great idea. Would take an experienced admin to put together but clearly would be nice to have. I will see about assisting with this asap.

By experience I warn you to not make extended explanations with 200 links. But just two links.
*just a pack HOF specific skin ,texture and other to download ...... with how to inside.
*just a link to a UT optimized.

Some have the satisfaction of laying a thesis about how to and lost future players UT. Please don't do that or you lost new players.

There are some default things to know now days for any player which have to be read or else joining for reading info in game will never happen... because there are a few steps until to join for getting other info. Client has to be Net Ready before to see a Server.

Default Player Moves:
- updating client at least to version 436;
- then patching launchers accordingly - AMD troubles here;
- updating MasterServers for browsing correctly ON-Line gaming;
- video drivers updates to at least a minimal recommended d3d9 or OpenGL type;
- optionally a new console if has knowledge about INI Editing etc, some players are half retarded btw, still using 2400 at NetSpeed and doing no change to the default game settings;
- looking for Credits.utx to be the last one - the bigger one not that 400 k file;
- keeping stock client as clean as possible;
- remove that garbage launcher "UnrealTournament.exe" granted by steam version if it's used such version, and use another one, G00gled properly.

Optional Player Moves:
- downloading skins and installing them accordingly for those addicted to UT circus;
- enhancing game browser with custom game-types TABS;
- setting up Cache deletion to unlimited time - stay with files over there rather than messing with mismatch file errors.
Default rule: Stop thinking that an UT copy having 100 GB (mods and trash loaded) is OK. It's NOT - it's pain;
- using a newer Engine Extension if client's machine do supports it well - all setup info it's in original thread at UT99.org - when forum is working...;
- adding a cross-hair according to screen resolution used;
- in case of various troubles - using a PC operating manual and reading basics - I'm not joking here.

This is a small format of basic information for player - it takes time to do settings and downloading needed data. Feel free to expand these if they have to be completed more - links, explanations, etc.
