Welcome Slis! QA extraordinaire!

in Misc - posted 1 month ago by FrozenSand
Welcome Slis! QA extraordinaire!

After a long selection process we have finally found the perfect fit for our QA Manager position. His name is 'Slis' and we are happy to welcome him into the team!

Slis and his quality assurance team will be tasked with thouroughly testing the game to make sure it's ready for the next stage of development. To do that they follow a strict set of guidelines to systematically find bugs and make sure they can be replicated. They then document and submit them to the developers for a fix. It's up to him to make sure that these guidelines are adhered to and the final product meets the highest standards.

To give you a little background on Slis; he is an Electrical Engineer by trade and has a lot of experience in the quality assurance industry heading his own teams for the likes of IBM amongst others. Currently in his day job he works with computer automation and electronics. He doesn't have a huge amount of experience with Urban Terror like some of us, but for this position that's not really a bad thing at all, and will actually work in his favour.

So if you get a chance to speak with him you will quickly realize that he is very switched on and doesn't miss a beat whilst having a great eye for detail and making sure things are done the right way the first time. We think he is going to be a great addition to the team and someone we can trust to make sure the game we all love will be perfect when it comes to release.

When you see him around the place please give him a big welcome and a pre-emptive 'thankyou' for making sure this game is set to knock our socks off!

A manager of communities, or as we like to call him, Community Manager!

in Misc - posted 1 month ago by FrozenSand
We have had a new addition to our team recently; a gentleman by the name of Ne0. Actually he joined a couple of weeks ago now but we thought we'd give him some time to acclimatize a bit before dropping him in the deep end at the mercy of everyone! :P

From here onwards Neo is now the first point of contact for community members regarding accounts or anything else game related. If you want to know something go to him first and if he doesn't know he can surely find the person that does! Saves a lot of running around!

Neo comes from Germany and has been around the place for quite a while - from regular pubs, icy jumps, competitive playing, being involved in Urban Zone and as an admin on various discord servers - so there is a pretty good chance you already know him. We thought it's about time we gave him an official title and put him to official use - our new Community Manager!

If you want to contact him you can either hit him up on our official discord (link below) using the tag @communitymanager, email (also below), or just yell really, really loudly. Probably start with the first two though I'd say. :P

FrozenSand opens its Discord doors to the public

in Urban Terror - posted Saturday, 17 November 2018 by FrozenSand
FrozenSand is thrilled to invite you, the community, to join the developers on their Discord server.


For almost a year now, we have been using this Discord server for internal discussions. Now, we have decided to open it for the broad public in order to ensure short ways of communication, support and discussions with primarily Urban Terror Resurgence in mind. By joining the Discord community, you will be able to receive the latest UrT Resurgence news as well as live support for the previous game version and chat with the development team. Moreover, you'll get more insights and see more WIP content from the developers.

As Discord is now meant to be our primary channel of communication, it is a great way to deliver and receive feedback. Eventually, we will select community members from the Discord server to get exclusive access to the private alpha version of the game, which might be around the corner. Enjoy your stay!

As the leaves start turning red again and summer comes to an end, it is time for some competitive Urban Terror again, with the Urban Zone Fall Cup.

The 2018 Fall Cup will start on Wednesday, September 12th.
We hope to see you compete for the crown.

Urban Terror 4.3.4 release

in Urban Terror - posted Thursday, 21 June 2018 by FrozenSand

Although we make the best effort to ensure the stability of our releases, a bug occurring on very rare occasions fell under our radar in the 4.3.3 release.

The 4.3.4 release should fix this bug, which would induce random game crashes and freezes on specific maps (especially Eagle).

To update your game client, simply run the UrTUpdater executable from your game folder. You can alternatively download the full Urban Terror 4.3.4 pack or the 4.3.3 to 4.3.4 update package.
Information: This release contains several important security fixes as well as various bug fixes and improvements. It is highly recommended to update as soon as possible.

Changelog

Fixed the random crash issues which happened especially (but not only) on the map Eagle #431
Fixed several potential buffer overflow exploits
Fixed the bug where unpinning a 2nd nade in a row and switching to another weapon would result in the nade being dropped on the floor. #26
Fixed players being stuck with level 19 in Gun Game when g_randomorder was set to 1 #436
Magnum: fixed the reload animation and the reappearance of the crosshair not being completely synced
Bomb mode: fixed SurvivorWinner events not being written in the server logs in some situations. #293
In order to free up some space in the "serverinfo" variable, and to try to prevent the "info string length exceeded" error messages on the servers, and the subsequent potential bugs:
1 Removed g_bombDefuseTime and g_bombExplodeTime from the serverinfo
2 Changed g_teamnameRed and g_teamnameBlue to g_nameRed and g_nameBlue
3 Removed the "Clan" and "Location" serverinfo vars from server_example.cfg - server admins are free to add them back to their configs if needed
4 Removed auth_tags, auth_verbosity, auth_cheaters and auth_log from the serverinfo as they weren't strictly needed
5 Removed dmflags from the serverinfo string, it's an unused leftover from Quake 2
6 This frees up about 115 chars in the serverinfo string
Fixed output of the "where" client command
Fixed map/next map vote menu ignoring previously highlighted map and calling vote with the first map on the list #122
Menus: fixed inconsistencies in leading space in weapon select screen. #304

Updated engine

Thanks to an incredible community effort led by mickael9, you are now able to play Urban Terror 4.3 on an engine which is up to date with the latest ioquake3 features. This engine brings support for VoIP, Mumble, a new OpenGL2 renderer, and fixes hundreds of engine bugs along the way.

If you wish to try this new engine version (currently in beta), please open your UrTUpdater, go to File -> Settings and select the "ioq3-m9" engine.

Thank you!

Many thanks to the players who have reported issues on our GitHub repository. We would also like to say a special thank you to the DrunkNoobs clan as well as mickael9 and TTimo for their help with debugging the game crash issue.
