CMM Map design competition

in Maps & mapping - posted Saturday, 23 November 2013 by FrozenSand

You — yes, you — may have wanted to build your very own map for years but lack the skills, persistence, or simply time. Now you can: CMM is holding a map design competition open for anyone.

Groups of any kind (clans, communities, just a couple of friends) are eligible. There’s no limit to the number of designs a person or a group can post as long as they conform to the minimal requirements.

To enter, you have to post a layout sketch and as complete description of the theme as you deem necessary — at minimum, a couple of words about what the map would depict plus some photos. Paintings/drawings or screenshots would also do; however, you’re not supposed to ask for a remake of an existing map from another game, this is all about your awesome idea.

The winning entry will be built by CMM members. You will be able to work together with the mappers and make the decisions that will affect the final result, should you choose so. The full credit and rights to the map will belong to you or your group.

B1naryTh1ef Departs FrozenSand

in Urban Terror - posted Monday, 19 August 2013 by FrozenSand
B1naryTh1ef has departed FS to pursue other interests. He quit the team when he was confronted with the fact that his real name was in the leaked files.

His name can be found multiple times in the NetBeans project properties file:



Not to mention his user name also shows as an owner of the files:



No one else on the team uses NetBeans as development IDE and this nbproject directory has never been committed to our GIT repository. So, this compressed archive released with 4.2 source code belongs to someone who's name is andrei (as visible from the 2 screenshots above).

Twitter profile: https://twitter.com/b1naryth1ef

Also, it's pretty easy to find a match, by simply asking google to do the job for us: http://www.google.com/search?q=b1naryth1ef

There are at least three copies of an IRC chat log floating around the internets (the earliest is from June 17, 2013) of a plot to get B1naryTh1ef to steal the code so they could sell Urban Terror under a different name on Steam using a wrapper to pull the assets from our website. We cannot verify the source of the log, but it does fit with the facts that we do know.

This is an unfortunate development. As a member of the Dev Team he could have fulfilled all of the great ideas he had for the game. He could have gotten help from the more experienced coders when he ran into problems like he did with Gungame and his new logic entities for maps. None of his projects have been finished despite help being readily available.

We have decided not to open a discussion thread for this news. Please do not start one. Many Thanks!

Git Repository Hacked

in Urban Terror - posted Saturday, 17 August 2013 by FrozenSand
As you may be aware of the event unfolding this weekend we have had a data breach which resulted in all of our sources stolen. This has been confirmed both by our own investigations of the server in question and of course the public release of our code base.

Today RaideR received this email:
Quote of Hacker:

umad?
turns out u guys dont own us
the community fights back
we wont take your s***
u ban us from ur game
u hide your codes
u run
stop
its time for the community to take over
you let idiots like elf and raider run your servers and you expect security
you expect me to run away from a home ipd box
i lold.
you wont figure out how i got in
you wont rid yourselfs of me
guess what happens next
you loose control
no more dictatorship
no more closed source
only community
only success
no more fs
goodbye fs
we wont miss you
Link to source removed as it's a criminal act and we can't verify it's free from viruses.
good bye
Of course this is going to have some long lasting and major impact on how Urban Terror is developed going forward. Honestly, they have had a victory, let's not be naive about that. They got what they wanted and pretty sure it has the desired effect. To say otherwise would be foolish.

However, it is the strong reservation of this team that we will not simply "roll over and die" which seems to be the personal mission of "persons unknown". We won't go after them, such a pursuit would be futile, but almost certainly we will not quit simply because some bullies want us to.

In the coming days we will have some major changes (obviously) in the way that this team will move forward on our project. In addition we would like to make the following statement.

The source code for 4.2 was taken and published without consent and the theft has been reported to law enforcement. While we won't actively pursue the case, this data is stolen property and we ask that should you come across these sources that you do not use them. Crime has been committed here and while we have little to no interest in pursuing the individuals responsible we appreciate any information people have regarding the incident.

This is an attack on Frozensand and this community, we have been abused and forcibly violated. No less by people who claim to be acting in its best interests.

Further information will follow this public statement in the near future!

Regards,

Team FS
