    Sourcetunk, "your trunkload of open source" has recently posted an audio review of Urban Terror (v4.0) on their web site. Dimitri Larmuseau has provided his input and comments about the latest release of the game. The review is quite comical, yet a great overall and positive review about the game. If you are still unsure about downloading Urban Terror and getting addicted, check out his audio review. Some great in game audio commentary along with some of his friends.

    The Urban Terror part starts at 00:12:00 and goes untill 00:25:30.

    Some updates

    in Misc - posted Saturday, 13 October 2007 by FrozenSand
    There's a few things I think are worth a newspost.

    First of all, there has been some work on the frontpage. Certain info was added, pages were updated and/or cleaned up. If you think anything's missing, post about it on the forums, this thread for example.

    One thing which I know is missing is good screenshots. The ones currently in the gallery are kind of boring. Please refer to this forum thread so that we can make it better.

    Talking of screenshots... BladeKiller provided us with some pics of the new skins for 4.1. Here you go:



    Another thing is the work gurkesaft is doing. He coded the serverside of a q3 authserver, which means we could run our own auth server with a key system for ioUrbanTerror. This means we could have a system where people would have to sign up for keys before they can play (on servers that demand it). The keys could be used to identify/ban people. It's pretty interesting stuff. Still in testing phase though. Details need to be worked out too. Read about it here.

    Finally, there's been a few new third party maps released. Check out this post for the full list of 3rd party maps.

    PS: Sorry, we don't have a date for 4.1. It's too hard to tell when it will be done... Could be next week, could be 2 more months...

    BattlEye development for ioUrT ended

    in UrT software (io) - posted Sunday, 12 August 2007 by FrozenSand
    Due to other commitments, the BattlEye developer will stop supporting ioUrbanTerror. This means there won't be any more updates to BattlEye. There is now no reason to continue running a server with BattlEye enabled.

    This means server admins should now choose between running a q3/UrT server with PunkBuster, or a ioUrT/UrT server without any anti-cheat.

    We understand how the lack of anti-cheat can be very cumbersome and are also dissappointed about BattlEye not being finished.

    Thanks to some good tips from the community, we have contacted another anti-cheat group that might start supporting ioUrT. However, they have other priorities first, so for now, we have to wait.

    Urban Terror Stands Alone at ClanBase

    in Leagues - posted Friday, 10 August 2007 by FrozenSand
    Beginning Sunday, August 19, ClanBase will start supporting Urban Terror leagues using the stand alone version of the game, thus not requiring gamers to have a retail copy of Quake III Arena.

    This is what the release of the stand alone version of Urban Terror was developed for. Of course since the release on April 1, there has been the continuing question of a viable anti-cheat program. This will mean that admins will have more work when it comes to running the league.

    For more information read the ClanBase announcement and go join the gaming on IRC at #clanbase.UrT. Thanks to the crew at CB and the Urban Terror gamers for making this possibility a reality!

    ut4_suburbs: coming to you in 4.1.

    in Urban Terror - posted Saturday, 07 July 2007 by FrozenSand
    Do you like maps with vertical play and roof access? Well, you're in luck! Terror in the Suburbs by ShminkyBoy is an open- air, vertical play map that is slated for release with the upcoming 4.1 update for Urban Terror. It supports Team Survivor, Team Deathmatch, Capture and Hold, Bomb Mode, Follow the Leader, Capture the Flag, and Free for All. Here's some screenshots:



    PS: We don't know when 4.1 will be released yet, could be soon, could be late (sorry).

    Bugtracker closed.

    in Website & Forum - posted Wednesday, 27 June 2007 by FrozenSand
    For now, we think we are clear on the most important bugs that we want fixed for 4.1.

    We would like to thank everybody who took the time and effort to report bugs. If you find a new important bug, you can of course report it in the forums.

    Possible issues with Urban Terror master servers

    in Masters & Auth - posted Friday, 22 June 2007 by FrozenSand
    For clients:

    There's a chance you might run into problems with the ingame server browser. You might not be able to contact it at all, or it may return too little servers. The reason is that the Urban Terror master servers have changed IP, but because of ISP's DNS caches, you might get redirected to the wrong IP. Also, because not all servers are correctly reporting to the new IP yet, it might show less servers. The issue should resolve itself in a few days, but you can also use the following temporary fix:

    In the Urban Terror menu, open the console, using ~. Type /cl_master master.quake3arena.com . This master server is slower, but should work correctly. After a few days, you can set it back using /cl_master master.urbanterror.net .

    For servers:

    Server admins are advised to restart their gameserver(s), so that their server will start heartbeating to the master server again. It should resolve master.urbanterror.net to 74.x.x.x, it shows this in the console/log after restarting the server.

    Edit:

    There's now 175 servers reporting again, there used to be a little over 200, so there's still a few servers that need to restart, but it's pretty much okay now.

    STA Urban Terror: Season XIV Coming Soon...

    in Leagues - posted Friday, 01 June 2007 by FrozenSand


    Start Dates:

    The tentative start date for STA Urban Terror: FLAGS (CTF) is now July 8th.
    The tentative start date for STA Urban Terror: FRAGS (TS or BM) is now July 10th
    We had thought about using June 17th as the start date but after realizing that people have exams to write and the Holidays in the USA and Canada, the dates have been pushed back until after these have happened.

    There are also various items that are still being discussed in the Announcement & Captains Forums that need to be taken care of before Season XIV starts.

    These items include:

    Maplists for both leagues
    Choose either Team Survivor or Bomb Mode
    Round times of either 20 or 25 minutes (TS or BM)
    Whether or not we should have a 3rd Gametype
    The discussion for these topics end on June 6th so please head on over to our forums and participate.

    We're also thinking about the including of European teams. Depending on how many teams we have interested, we may do a seperate division. If you're team is interested please head on over to the STA site and express your interest in the Announcement forums or contact a STA Admin.

    Thank you for your time,

    The STA Urban Terror Admin Team
