Sure, it's on NOW. I, however, am on top of the latest news and got it before they posted it there :).

From the README-v12.txt. Pay special attention the video and audio tips at the beginning of the readme:


:: General Information ::


Nice performance tweak:

open FragOps.ini

change OverrideDesktopRefreshRate to True

change DesiredRefreshRate to the highest possible refresh your monitor can handle.

you should see a nice little fps boost. Can't wait till we can get settled in and write some real docs,

but (the D-word) our stress level is just through the roof right now.


Sound fix:

I've included an updated sound dll for UT2k3 v2225 released after the v2225 patch that fixes

some problems with spatialization in the software driver. It can be found in UT2003\System\SoundFix

and all you need to do is copy it over to UT2003\System, overwriting when prompted. Quoted from

the unreal site:

| Updated DefOpenAL32.dll for UT2003 version 2225 July 11, 2003 - by Daniel Vogel

| An updated DefOpenAL32.dll (v0.9.9.1) fixing spatialization issues with the default

| software mixer can be downloaded here. The file belongs in the UT2003/System folder.

| I want to specifically thank Nick Borrelli, Christopher Linder, Daniel Peacock, Carlo

| Vogelsang and Johnathan Wendel for bringing the problems to my attention and help

| getting them fixed. Thanks guys!


Starting the game:

Use the included links to start the game in windows. Linux uses can use the linux package and start

the game from the included script. Or, you can now use our new launcher, which automatically checks

and patches the game as required to play online.


Server admins:

You must remove references to FragOps.FragOps_GameEngine in your FragOps.ini and FOUser.ini files for

the game to work correctly in linux. Also make sure you move FragOps.u into UT2003\System or it could

fail to find the file. For some reason default admin is busted in Linux (Epic, help?), so use advanced

admin if you get accesscontrol errors when starting the game.

Well, i guess i'm out of time. It's 4:20pm on friday and if i dont upload this thing now, we're

going to miss the contest deadline. I want to say more here, and even do more to the game but needless

to say, no time for that. Well, here goes. Hope the world likes this first alpha.



-- Taclight and Laser may possibly not replicate on the server.

-- BulletHole projectors occasionally darken/discolor terrain (ut2k3 bug)

-- Taclight isn't as bright on terrain (ut2k3 bug)

-- 3rd person animations are all screwed up. Dammit.

Ok, once again there is an update for FO. It isn't listed on the forums anywhere. I only found out because I started FO and, as you know, it won't let you play without downloading the update. That's fine, the problem is I downloade dit, updated and now it keeps telling me there are updates. Only when I click on update, it shows me the screen where you choose where to dl from and there are no chioces. That makes sense, considering I ALREADY UPDATED THE DAMN THING! Now I can't play because it keeps telling me I need to update. I know it's an Alpha version, I can still get mad.

Yeah, it works now. Had to restart and delete and god knows what else. Also, is anybody else able to run the custom maps in bot match? There are some I cant run, says I am missing files.
