Alpha survey now closed

in UrT Resurgence - posted 1 month ago by FrozenSand
Thank you to everyone that filled out the survey and showed interest in joining our group of alpha testers! The survey is now closed.

It's now time for us to start the process of evaluating the survey results, and with nearly 500 responses hopefully all our testing needs will be met.

From here we will work out who best suits the positions, and then contact people accordingly. There is only a certain number of people needed so we do apologize if you didn't make it - please remember it isn't personal.

As we go through the results the people chosen will be contacted and gradually added as we need them; the people that unfortunately didn't make it will also be notified as a courtesy.

If you want to know more about the development process and you missed OJ's blog explaining a bit about it, click here.

We really appreciate all the people who submitted the survey and are willing to help us test Urban Terror 5. Keep the artwork coming for Battle of the Artists and we'll keep you updated on the alpha.

Keep your eyes peeled for our next new news!

Urban Terror 5 Private Alpha

in UrT Resurgence - posted 1 month ago by FrozenSand
ALPHA TESTING HAS COMMENCED!

We are happy to announce the private alpha stage of Urban Terror 5 has begun! The doors are being opened to our first group of testers as we speak!

As you know for the past 5 years we have been working on updating UrT to run on the shiny new Unreal Engine 4. This means working on the core of the game and making sure all the building blocks are solid and have it feeling like the UrT we all know and love.

We're now at a point where we feel it's time to reach out and get some more people on board to help us test the game. We rarely have time ourselves amidst development and there just isn't enough of us to test the game thouroughly anyway. Hopefully with the start of the private alpha we won't have to worry about that anymore as there are teams that will do that for us - headed by our super guru QA master extraordinaire Slis of course!

Awesome right? Want to get involved?

We have devised a little survey for everyone to fill out. It tells us about the specs of the system you are running and a little bit of your background and motivations for wanting to be involved with this project. We'll go through the submissions and gradually add people to our test groups over the next few weeks and months. You can access the survey here:



If you want more information we have written up a detailed description of the alpha and what you can expect going forward here. You can also join us on the Official Urban Terror Discord server to chat about the alpha!

See you on the battlefield!

Moving Trucks For Urban Terror

in UrT Resurgence - posted Thursday, 20 March 2014 by FrozenSand


Well folks it's time for the moving trucks to arrive for Urban Terror. We have explored several options and finally decided on moving to Unreal Engine 4.

For the last few months we've been working on UDK3 (ie. casa screenshot which was shown on FB and Twitter) in order to "learn the UDK way" and everything done for UDK3 is already done as well for UDK4. You can read all about Unreal 4 at https://unrealengine.com/

This has a lot of advantages for us and our community. We have full access to the engine source code and we will be able to use Steam to distribute the game. As we learn more about UE4 we will keep you posted.

Jump Mode Notice

in UrT Resurgence - posted Monday, 21 May 2012 by FrozenSand
Jump Mode is planned to have its own gametype in Urban Terror HD. You may have already had a taste of it when you tried out our HD Alpha. Now Frozen Sand has included a second Jump mode: "Team Jump Mode" !

Jump modes:

Jump Training, a kind of free-for-all where each player has his/her own objectives.

Team Jump Mode, more dedicated to competition and teamwork in Urban Terror. Two teams jump against each other with points to collect and the clock to beat.

Our goal is to develop the competition aspect of this game mode for both individual and team play.

Some of the features for these modes:
Gametype 9 (Jump Training) and gametype 10 (Team Jump Mode).
Players are invincible, they cannot break their legs or die.
A cvar g_ghostPlayers (0/1), when activated it will not be possible to "block" other players.
Crystals to collect, each giving a point.
Spectators can chat with players in game and vice versa.
Radio binds are activated for both modes.
A cvar g_noStamina (0/1) which allows beginners to turn off stamina.
A cvar g_maxWallJumps (0/100) which allows either to turn off walljumps, or to grant a certain number of wall jumps according to the requirements of a map.
Start and Finish lines to be placed at the beginning and end of a map.
A stopwatch which starts as soon as you cross the start line, and which of course stops by touching the finish line.
Auto-saving of the best time made during the game so you can try to beat your own record time.
Two cvars /savePos and /loadPos to save and go back to your saved position.
It is possible to see all players on the minimap (Jump Training).
A Jump scoreboard at the end of the round with the number of crystals collected, the best time, etc.
A system of centralised statistics coupled with the authentication system of Urban Terror HD.


Please note that this is work in progress. And we want your input ! You can help us by visiting our forum, and give us your opinion. All suggestions are welcome !

Urban Terror HD Faster For Older Systems

in UrT Resurgence - posted Sunday, 01 April 2012 by FrozenSand
Not everyone can afford a gaming rig. In the current economic climate, Frozen Sand has decided that the best way forward is to help cater for players who are struggling with poor frame rates in Urban Terror.

This was not an easy task. We found that older systems graphics hardware and drivers were just not good enough to display our new visuals. After much discussion within the team,
we decided to write our own renderer for older systems.

Urban Terror HD will feature a new terminal renderer. Yes, thats right, anything with terminal emulation and 16 colour support can play Urban Terror! There is much work to be done still, but it looks promising.

Our new minimum specs for Urban Terror are now:
386 DX
32Mb RAM
CGA graphics and above (16-colour support required)

This was indeed inspired by vi-oquake3, that was developed for the ioquake3 project. However, we noted this method had a drawback being framed within vi; switching between insert and command mode would not have suited Urban Terror's fast gameplay.

Now for the goodies - a video showcasing Urban Terror with the new renderer!

April Fools! - Hope you had a good one :D
