Exclamation New Freon Mutators
Reply With Quote


Hello all, just giving an update to everyone that there are a couple of new mutators on the Freon server! They will add all sorts of random Awards to the game. For instance, Crotch Shot is back, but is not insta-kill (we can set up how much the damage is multiplied when you get one in the ini file). There are a bunch of other events that happen now, but I wont list them all here. There's also a special event that only happens in Freon, and only on a couple of "special" maps.

One more thing: The new mutator fixes the "Shadows Crashing" bug in Freon. Feel free to turn your shadows back on if you play on our server.

As for what the rest of the special events are, you'll have to play and find out!

One last thing - those of you who were around when the server was brought down for the upgrade, you may have reconnected and gotten an incorrect animations file. If you have problems joining the server, simply clear your cache and you should be fine from then on. However there is a VERY slim chance this should have affected anyone, since the problem file was only on the server for a brief period of time.

I had a chance to test the new mutators last night. There is some very fun stuff added in there. The new rewards are awesome. My favorite one so far has been the award when you kill someone with the link shaft. Just brilliant. Thanks to Opti for being my test subject. I don't want to give any away, because they are much more fun to be suprised with when you see them for the first time.

I have yet to discover what the "special maps" are. They will be discovered in time. One has gotta have something to do with lava though.

I found a minor "bug" that will be addressed later this week. (I'm giving time for any other minor issues to crop up that I may have missed). Its tiny, but when YOU get crotch shot by someone else, only they hear the "crotch shot" message, and you (the victim) should hear it as well. Not a big deal, so I'm not in an emergency hurry to fix it, but it'll be up sometime this week.

sorry for bailing last night opti... i had a paranoid fit about something
anyway,
I definitely heard the announcer announce that my crotch had been shot several times before I had to leave. I only know this because 1) I wasn't shooting at the time and 2) it's *really* disorienting if you aren't shooting and it's announced

I could be misinterpreting your description of the bug. (aka "no, it has to be your bull")

It's ok - it was funny - I got shot and didn't hear it so I went and checked my script. I could swear it was missing the call to send the message to the victim. I guess I'll check it again when I get back tongiht - I reworked the crotch/butt shot code partway through the development of the mutator, and it could be that I left that announcement outside the new function I made to do all the handling. Either way, I'll test it out some more and see

As for it being disorienting - well, I could remove all the announcements on the victims, but I figured the "FYI" for them would be a bit more helpful when they try to figure out why they lost a lot more health (should the admin have the multiplier set higher), etc. I know headshots dont announce to the victims, so maybe in the next revision, I remove the annoucements to the victims for the new awards

I can't connect. Whenever I try it downloads the OmniAwardsTex_v1 (or something close to that) and then it goes back to connecting ... Afterwards it downloads the file again only this time it goes past 100% and keeps going and going.

Can I download the new files manually?

I've noticed the same strangeness with the redirect of the textures and sound files - it goes passed 100%, but then it completes and I get in. We'll have to look into this.

Yup, as you mentioned, patience was the key. It got up to about 500% then went through. Weird, but hey it works. You da man!

Nice work with the mutators, and the announcements are priceless. Who did the voice acting for those?

The voices, the donkey head mesh, textures, and code were all done by me. I recorded all the voices and then used Audacity to distort them into a deeper version, with an echo. I did the mesh in blender, used an export script I wrote for skeletal meshes and animations to export them into the format that UEd needed, and did the texture and its UV mapping on the mesh back and forth between blender and photoshop using nvidia's dds plugin. Nobody has probably seen the donkey head yet, but suffice to say, there is a donkey head in there "somewhere", and it animates all on its own and everything. There's also quite a bit of customization for admins available, along with a few other hidden "tricks" and a couple of easter eggs that are player and map specific
