least resource hungry way of doing a trigger system.

I know of how to trigger such an effect, but I'm guessing there's a much more efficient (least CPU resources used) to do it. Ya, I know trigger systems don't eat gobs of resources, but I'd still like to trim the fat so to speak. I'd like a there to be two locations A and B, which would each be gover...

The bottleneck is probably your hardware... either the harddrives, lan card, cpu, ram in your computer. I don't know where the issue is, but I'll say that I've ran many a UT99 and UT04 games on lan with little latency issues. Also, I think it's game limited, because files tend to transfer just as f...

How to maxout file xfer rates for UT2004 server>client xf

First of all, I'm not talking "netspeed" here... OK, so you hop in a server online, and it's using a mod or mutator or map that you don't have. So, it transfers the necessary files to your computer, and if it takes to long, you can hit F10 to cancel. My question is, how would I max out thi...

BAH!

Now I can't place *CrossbowStandardAmmoPickup to my map!

Any ideas? Did I have PR370 and now PR375 doesn't allow ammo pickups?

Must I really add a base?

I'd almost given up on my map. Couldn't play it in multiplayer. So I tried un/reinstalling chaos, and then my map gave me an "Bad expr token ..." crash error. Only my very early DM builds of the map before I'd tried to add choas actors other than weapons would open. Did a desperate search ...

OK so it seems if I set the CPP pickup amount to -120, it eliminates the CPP. Only one major issue remaining, and that's removing the SheildGun without removing other standard UT2004 weapon pickups. What's the best way to do this? Also, I've stumbled upon some scriptedsequence info, and am trying to...

That's weird. Since loading the package for the map once, every other Choas weapon came up, except the CPP until I finally loaded the package again. Thanks! Problem is, I have the ammo amount to -60, but it only does -10. I'll try more experimentation, maybe I'll try doing it with the weapon instead...

Hey, when you have the CPP equipped when you get fragged, it falls to the ground... What's that actor's name and how do I get there from "Actor"? And does it have it's own ammo, or does it use another ammo type like the assault rifle ammo or something? Is there absolutely NO placeable acto...

I found Old Skool Monsta Tools, so it looks like that should answer the pupae question.

Still wondering why my bots have periods of peacefulness, however.

Creature spawn and peaceful AI

3 questions: 1) What actor would I used to spawn pupae? 2) The bots in my level sometimes don't see eachother. My pathnodes are fine, two way streets where I want them as such. Part of my level is dim, I was wondering if maybe there's a way to force the distance bots can see eachother? If there's al...

OK, I've managed to find the beta for 2004. I'll test it out in the next few days.

The SA mod gives me an error whenever trying to configure in game. I'm guessing its giving it because it's a 2003 mod.

I tried looking for a 2004 mod, and apparently there's a beta for it, but any links I find to DL it go to the same dead link.

Know of any valid links?
