4.2.010 Now LIVE!

in Urban Terror - posted Friday, 22 March 2013 by FrozenSand
Head over to the download area and pickup the NEW UrTUpdater.

It looks exactly the same as the previous version but it's very different!
We STRONGLY recommend doing a clean install. However, if you can't or don't want to do this, you can simply update any 4.2 install.

note Version 4.1.* is not compatible with 4.2.* and you must NOT install 4.2 over 4.1 as it will break your game.

If you get an error (about a download being corrupt), please restart the updater, it will pickup from where it encountered the error and resume.

See the release notes on the "Pre-Release News".

GL and HF with the next installment of Urban Terror !!

As per usual we welcome feedback in our forum.

Release 4.2.010 coming today at 22:00 CET

in Urban Terror - posted Friday, 22 March 2013 by FrozenSand
Good news Urban Terror fans ! We are very pleased that after one of our longer development cycles we are ready to release Urban Terror 4.2.010.

Warning: You can start running the updater today, 22 March 2013 around 22:00 CET !

This new installment of the game comes packed with many new features, bug fixes and performance improvements. Among other novelties, players can customize the game by picking among the legacy player skins and 6 brand new skin sets (refer to the manual on skin forcing). Jumpers have not been forgotten with new cvars controlling run timers and physics, and the Glock gets revamped SFX. You'll be happy to know that the animations have been updated as well.

Added TTimo's QuakeLive-style mouse acceleration


Both male and female animations updated
Collision reporting improvements

TTimo's QuakeLive-style mouse acceleration

To enable it, set cl_mouseAccelStyle 1 (0 is the default/legacy behavior).
New style is controlled with 3 cvars:


The old code (cl_mouseAccelStyle 0) can be difficult to calibrate because if you have a base sensitivity setup, as soon as you set a non zero acceleration your base sensitivity at low speeds will change as well. The other problem with style 0 is that you are stuck on a square (power of two) acceleration curve.

The new code tries to solve both problems:

Once you setup your sensitivity to feel comfortable and accurate enough for low mouse deltas with no acceleration (cl_mouseAccel 0), you can start increasing cl_mouseAccel and tweaking cl_mouseAccelOffset to get the amplification you want for high deltas with little effect on low mouse deltas.

cl_mouseAccel is a power value. Should be >= 1, 2 will be the same power curve as style 0. The higher the value, the faster the amplification grows with the mouse delta.

cl_mouseAccelOffset sets how much base mouse delta will be doubled by acceleration. The closer to zero you bring it, the more acceleration will happen at low speeds. This is also very useful if you are changing to a new mouse with higher dpi, if you go from 500 to 1000 dpi, you can divide your cl_mouseAccelOffset by two to keep the same overall 'feel' (you will likely gain in precision when you do that, but that is not related to mouse acceleration).

[4.2] Update 4.2.008

in Urban Terror - posted Monday, 03 December 2012 by FrozenSand
The Frozen Sand development team has worked very hard to bring you this extended update for Urban Terror 4.2 !! Please all update your game as soon as possible.

We have included a test map called ut4_jumptest to show mappers how to implement the new jump entities. You can find the .map file within the ut4_jumptestmap.pk3.

note Please note we had to change the name of the jump mode tutorial map included with the release of 4.2.008 due to a name conflict. The new name is ut4_jumpents.pk3. Please delete the ut4_jumptest.pk3 that you received with the 4.2.008 update, and replace it with ut4_jumpents.pk3.

information To update your Urban Terror 4.2 we suggest you to use the UrTUpdater. You can also directly download Urban Terror 4.2.008.


Fixed the server lag / crash issue.
Fixed the client crash when selecting a weapon.
Potentially fixed the FPS issue.
Player model animations updated.
Fixed the SPAS which was causing excessive bleeding.
Fixed the Auth System logout UI bug.
New skins for FFA, LMS and Jump gametypes.
New /racejump and /racefree cvars.
New color for FFA and LMS HUD.
Fixed Eagle's cable car.
Fixed FFA UI scoreboard bug.
Fixed SPAS gear bug.
Defaulted player armband to light purple in JUMP mode when set to g_armband 1.
Fixed a bug in callvote kick UI menu.
Enhanced kill display, new options cg_drawKillLog 3|4|5 available, added to UI menu.
Fixed punctuation and some spelling in kill display.
New images for the player setup menu.
New player setup menus for the Free and Jump teams.
Added player's login to the scoreboard.
Fixed a bug in the "smite" command help text.
Changed the player bar color in the scoreboard for FFA, LMS (Green) and JUMP (Purple) to match the HUD color.

Reduced the range of the cvar r_primitives.
Added run timer and best timer in the scoreboard for jump mode.
Added jump mode timers:

Timers are deactivated on every map start. To activate the personal timer the player has to type /ready in the console. When a player is in "ready" status he/she will not be able to use /save, /load and /regainstamina commands. However, /g_noStamina will be available since it's a server feature. To deactivate the timer the player has to type /ready in console again or join "spectators". This will reset the run timer but it will keep the best run timer value and the last run timer value visible in the player HUD.

As per usual we welcome feedback in our forum.

alert WARNING For those who updated before 11:50CET, there is a bug with the animation pack. Please either delete zUrT42_0013.pk3 and run the updater (to download the update again) or replace it with the file yourself. Sorry about that!
