After Release Party

in Urban Terror - posted Friday, 10 August 2012 by FrozenSand
Thank you all for the support and trying out our newest version of Urban Terror !

The following bugs are being investigated, these are known bugs and Frozen Sand is working hard on fixing them:

Known Bugs

Armbands are not displayed correctly on team mates.
The time it takes to medic is too slow.
Server using 100% CPU power.
Server - Info string length exceeded.
Wrong G36 model (1st person view).
Autopickup 0 inconsistent.
Server Crash - ERROR: Cvar_Update: handle out of range.
Server Crash - unknown GH problem.
[Updater] vector:_M_range_check.
Hit mesh errors, e.g. leg registering as vest.
Crouch unhits.
Server Bug - console freezes.
Team gametypes showing as FFA, however this doesn't happen on our own test servers. We don't use any server bots. The server admins who reported this were probably using a server bot.
Some reports about stamina but we need more details.
Laser on AK, it was not supposed to have a laser but it seems people like it and didn't think it was overpowered with the bug in 4.1 so we will implement it properly.
Five pellets in the SPAS12, the damage marks do not show all of the pellets that are shot. Incidentally that is the same as in previous versions, but the spread in 4.2 is much tighter.
Dark shadow on Casa.
Clipping needed on Raiders.

Some of the reported bugs came from players who had installed Urban Terror 4.2 incorrectly, e.g. installing Urban Terror 4.2 in their 4.1.1 folder. Urban Terror 4.2 is a complete repack and requires a separate folder. Please continue to report bugs with as much detail as possible.

[4.2] New and Updated Maps

in Urban Terror - posted Thursday, 02 August 2012 by FrozenSand

New maps


Bohemia places the player in the midst of a somewhat unconventional city scape, tall buildings arc over the players as they run through the city's narrow streets and interlocking courtyards.


Cascade is a river based assault on a partially underground facility.


Raiders is Indiana Jones themed combining the Golden Idol, the temple and jungle environment. It has a classic medium sized layout is and designed for 8 to 12 players.

Updated maps


Casa's lighting has been changed so that it is less bright.


Kingdom's size has been brought down to medium. A new path between the Garden and the Church is added, and to prevent camping some areas were rebuilt.


Kingpin's indoor path has been rebuilt.


Mandolin had some bugs which were fixed like the bomb/nodrop issue and there are also some graphical updates.

To see the new and updated maps in full view, you'll have to wait till tomorrow... August 3, 2012 !

And as always, we appreciate your comments in our forum.

[4.2] Updated Hits and Animations

in Urban Terror - posted Thursday, 02 August 2012 by FrozenSand

Updated Hit detection

Hit detection in Urban Terror 4.2 has been greatly increased by rebuilding surface detection from scratch !

The old hit mesh's animations used to get out of sync with the player model's animations. This doesn't happen anymore with the new system. To accomplish this new animations had to be created along with a new hit mesh.

Updated Player model animations

The video below gives a good impression of the updated Player model animations:

[4.2] Last Man Standing

in Urban Terror - posted Wednesday, 01 August 2012 by FrozenSand
Last Man Standing, as the name suggests, each player for themselves and the last surviving gamer wins the round and gains 5 points. You also get 1 point per kill.
If you are killed you will respawn only at the start of the next round.
After a preset number of rounds or amount of time the map will change and the player with most points is the winner.

Last Man Standing is considered a variation of the Free For All game mode. It uses the spawns and all the other FFA entities and cvars. LMS should therefore be playable on almost all existing maps without any modifications.

LMS cvars:

You can select the LMS gametype with set g_gametype 1.

To set the number of rounds before the map ends: set g_maxrounds 8, 0 = never.

The time per round is set in minutes with: set g_RoundTime 3.

Suddendeath, when the map is finished, but there is a tie because the top players have the same score. Another round is added before the map changes with set g_suddendeath 1.

Feel free to leave a comment in our forum.

[4.2] The Auth System

in Urban Terror - posted Tuesday, 31 July 2012 by FrozenSand
With less than a week to go before the release of Urban Terror 4.2 Beta we would like to share some more information about the Auth system.

First of all, to be able to use the Auth system you need to be registered. And like the game, registering an account is free ! Of course you can still play Urban Terror 4.2 without an account, we don't expect all game servers to force full authentication.

The Auth system is a powerful tool that allows you to sign in to your Urban Terror account from within the game. The game servers you connect to will be able to identify you as well as the other players on the server.
As you maybe can imagine this will make it easier to manage servers and can potentially give many more benefits to improve your gaming experience.


One account per player.

Your notoriety in Urban Terror says something about your experience. In general, the longer you play and the more experience you gain, the higher your notoriety.

With Auth enabled clan tag's are protected.
Later account name protection will follow. For now players can use whichever alias they want on servers. However, on connection to a game server your Urban Terror account name will be displayed to everyone.

Server admins decide whether the connection on their server allows for players who do not have an account: /auth_notoriety 0.

Server admins can also use a cvar to turn off/on the auth system: /auth_enable 0/1.

Server admins can get information about the players on their servers like account levels with rcon. /rcon auth-whois playername/id.

Server admins manage their ban-lists through their group management page. You can find your group(s) here.

Server admins may choose to use the ban-lists of other admins. You can find the banlist of each group here.

information The Auth system is available with Urban Terror 4.2 using the dedicated server binary provided by Frozen Sand.

alert NB: Do not share your Auth key with anyone ! It is private like a password.

error For problems with your account please email

The Auth system is still a BETA. Many more features will follow, we will gradually introduce more and more.

For further discussion please visit our forum.
