• DVGaming.COM UT4 servers

    The first "playable" UT4 beta is here. So of course we made some DVGaming.COM servers for it!

    To quote Epic on the current state of the game: "It is still very early in development, so it's incomplete, buggy, full of placeholder art, and therefore is not in any way representative of the ultimate vision for the game." It is playable though. I personally love the improved weapons, especially the redeemer explosion.

    (1) It's 100% free. All you need to play the game is an unrealtournament.com forum account.
    (2) You can download the UT4 game here (you need to log in to the forum for this): https://forums.unrealtournament.com/...Playable-Build.
    (3) If you unpack the zip (and perhaps install required software) you can start the game with RunUT.bat

    We currently have 4 working servers (sort by Server Name to get them at the top of the list!):
    79.99.24.3:7777 CTF
    79.99.24.3:7778 DM
    79.99.24.3:7779 Instagib CTF
    79.99.24.3:7780 Team DM

      Nialzinth and I played UT4 a little and it feels quite fast. They seem to have done a promising job on the gameplay. It's all pre-alpha of course, but it already feels like a fun game. On one server I noticed some "overlord mode" with turrets so they added new stuff as well it seems. UT4 might finally make UT players happy again after the utter fiasco that was UT3.

      While ignoring all the placeholder art and ugly textures I must say I enjoyed playing a short session. Gameplay wise it's currently descent. It feels fast and smooth though I do miss the double jump. Battlemode mentioned there are some pickups for that but I didn't manage to find one or don't know how to activate it as I ran over several pickup bases where the timer was gone.

      I did have some issues with remapping the keybinds. Had to resort to the ini files found in "My Documents" or whichever equivalent on Mac. But hey..it's alpha but playable.

      I fixed the servers appearing RED in the UT4 in game browser by moving them from Linux to (virtual) Windows. Not ideal, but it all seems to work fine now. Nice ping as well.

      I started all server names with !!! so if you sort by name in the in game server browser they appear at the top (until others start copying my trick ).

      I boosted the specs of the Windows VM to increase CPU and memory. It's on SSD for 100% so it should be quite fast.

      I also automated everything so with reboots or windows updates all UT4 servers should restart automatically.

      I sent an e-mail (I think) to all DVGaming.COM members so I hope that will bring in some people to actually play this game.

      Didn't get anything here. Anyone else did?

      /edit
      I don't see the servers in my list either.

      The UT4 server crashed, I restarted it now. I suppose these things are to be expected with a pre-alpha version.

      I see. Was thinking the servers were already caught and removed due to the '!!!' part. Glad it's just a crash.

      It kept crashing and after the last crash I could no longer get it to start again. So for now I switched back to the RED Linux servers

      Back to the drawing board.

      I finally figured out what the problem was. UT4 only works properly if you use the server's primary IP address. So now I no longer need a crashing Windows VM to get our servers in the in game server browser.

      I replaced the DUEL server with Instagib CTF after figuring out this requires an intuitive and trivial parameter: ?Mutator=/Game/RestrictedAssets/BluePrints/Mutator_Instagib.Mutator_Instagib_c

      Got things working but only seen 2 dv servers atm.

      All 4 servers are live 24/7 but unfortunately the UT4 server browser is not that reliable (yet?). Sometimes refreshing helps. Otherwise you could enter the address and join directly.

      There is a new version up yesterday. So I cant come play on the servers as I've not got the older version

      I upgraded the UT4 servers to the latest version now (and made a script so I can update it easier/faster in the future).

      I'd be all about it as soon as I can develop Invasion without paying a monthly subscription...

      That seems unlikely. I intend to get a license at some point to work on RPG.

      cant seem to find your servers, downloaded latest build released on 19th. Is that the one your running?

      The update script BM made is probably not automated meaning the servers are probably a version behind if the latest new version was released 2 days ago. I'm sure he'll update as soon as he sees these posts.

      I updated the servers now. The script is indeed not 100% automated, e.g. I have to manually download the new Linux server version.
