Barbatos:

1) The servers will have their special updater executable file that will run in console mode.

2) Yes, look at my github account where is the source code of the engine we will be maintaining for Urban Terror 4.2 (here). When updating the server it'll ask you if you want to install/update the "official" engine or continue to use your own.

3) Yes. You won't be able to connect to 4.2.x servers with older versions. Also you won't be able to connect to a server that has a newer/older version of 4.2 and it'll ask you to update your game.

4) We didn't work on the bots for 4.2. They might be still as unstable as they are in 4.1. I hope someday we will get some time to fix them, but atm it's not our #1 priority. Smile

5) You'll know more about that when 4.2 will be released!

This how he calls "New engine for servers" is a steal from other guys (Rambetter, Mission)

There will be nothing new in server binaries:

server side demos
exploit fixes
drdos fixes

Like you know drdos fix totally sucks.... They used a fix from Rambetter but ... they cut that before adding in the source....

when you say new hit detection, are you able to explain what the difference will be? it sounds very intriguing but it would be nice to know what to expect so that we dont build up our hopes and expect miracles Razz


Well improvements to hit detection is an understatement as the current system used in 4.1 has been totally rewritten and tested over and over again since 2010 when we first decided it needed a serious update.

The first major issue was the hit mesh in 4.1 is using a totally different animation system that was more MD5 in nature and used, shale we say, a separate channel that made it almost imposable to tell what was happening during no-hit type events.

Second due to the random nature as well as questions to the 100% first shot rule a few of the problems that was pointed out as being inaccurate were masked by the fact that a no-hit event had occurred that was not the fault of a given weapon.

There were a few other factors taken into consideration but after a few months it was decided to redo the system from scratch and put the hit detection on the same animation track (channel) as the current md3 player models. Basically this glues the hit mesh to the player model and cannot wander off no more than one of the two lod’s would.

What does make a big difference is it’s now comparatively easy to adjust the hit mesh to make them either easier to hit or tighten them up to make them less so and with the auto update in place we can update as needed based on real time play test.

Miracles?

Maybe not but with 4.2 we are going to aggressively deal with any hit detection problems as they come up and as per HD if any issues relating to hit detection can be proven by demo and can be repeated we will fix it and push an update.

What do we expect?

We expect a lot of players at first will claim no-hit but the demos we have seen to date indicate that they missed as they had yet to adjust to the “improvements”. Wink
