CTF4 for UT2004

Post by Mayhem » Sun Jul 10, 2005 0:17

Surely we can never have enough mods for UT2004! :)
CTF4 Readme wrote:The concept behind CTF4 is simple: Capture the Flag, but with 4 teams instead of 2. Why would
4 teams be better than 2 you ask? Simple: More action, more choices, more strategy.

With four teams the objective becomes more than just attacking the enemy flag and defending
your own. You must think carefully about which team to attack. Because other teams can get
points without ever attacking your base (they can attack the other teams instead) - it becomes
important to watch what all the teams are doing. Just because you have a strong defense does
not mean you will win!

CTF4 also comes with TDM4, which is Team Deathmatch with up to 4 teams.

Yes, I have played it at a LAN party, with four teams of five players. It is an incredibly intense game, there is so much going on at once! For example, if someone steals your flag, not only are you chasing them, but other teams do too, because they want to steal the flag for themselves. At times you see players carrying *two* enemy flags at once, with a whole horde of players fighting everyone in range for possession. Its insane (in the good way) :D

Sadly there aren't many public internet servers running this mod, maybe because its hard to get enough players for a decent game. At a LAN party though I thoroughly recommend it.

There are missing files in the installer. UT2k4 complains:

Code: Select all

Warning: Fehler b. Laden v. 'BR4': Datei für Paket 'BR4' nicht gefunden
Warning: Fehler b. Laden v. 'CTF4-Skyline': Datei für Paket 'BR4' nicht gefunden
Warning: Fehler b. Laden 'LevelSummary CTF4-Skyline.LevelSummary': Datei für Paket 'BR4' nicht gefunden
Warning: Error loading CTF4-Skyline
Can't spot if it's missing BR4.u and/or BR4Textures.utx right now. I will test if wanted.

EDIT: ok, it's missing both.

i don't have this files and it's working great
but i see there error too in the logs

this BR4 stuff is part of http://www.uncommonplace.com/games/br4.html

but br4 is required for ctf4 and not the other way around

you can try the ctf4 zip files but i don't thing our installer is missing those files
it's a bug of the ctf4 mod devs so you should report this bug to them

I see. I try to report to the CTF4 authors, if this was not in their ZIP-files. Besides it's working, except this one map.
Ok, regard this as help, if anyone other ran into that problem.

Thanks.

Code: Select all

cat ~/.ut2004/System/UT2004.log | grep CTF4
This puts the code posted above, maybe it appears in your logs too.
But it's strange, BR4 requires CTF4, and CTF4 has dependencies on BR4. :roll:
Suggestion: packing all >4 teams< gametypes together in one installer (BR4 is only 17mb).

as i wrote i have this error in my logfile too

only ctf4-skyline map is missing in the maplist

ut2004
Error loading CTF4-Skyline !
WARNING: ALC_EXT_capture is subject to change!
Xlib: extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".
CTRL-C before main loop ... forcing exit.

so is related to this map

br4 isn't that big, thats right but i don't want to mix up two mods

it's definitive a ctf4 bug
did you report it yet and if yes, did you get any response yet?
