Postby big_croc » Sat May 03, 2003 4:24 pm

hi
u all have experienced this problem
U are on a role here man.. dominating.. killing everyone who tries to cross the middle... u see this enemy flag carrier go by.. n u try to shoot him... but O GUESS WHAT !!! there's this bright ass earth in my friggin way

some have told me its part of the game..but if relics r not part of the game n r being considered... surely removin this bloody earth shud also be considered...
:idea: u can first of all... switch to Facing Worlds League Edition .... removes half the bugs.... like -----
- The center area at the hill intersection has an invisible wall and u can get stuck there unless u translocate (if ur with flag ur totally screwed as it falls off the ledge)
- The invisible wall and .... kinda force field barrier in the corner RockeT Launcher area ...some wierd thingy where u cant go in..but u can come out...
- The poor lightin (much better lighting in FACE LE)
- thats all i can think of

people still say this is all part of the game/map...but no... epic didnt intend it to be part of the map.. AND if they still say that its part of the map.. they jus dont wanna face the fact that they made major errors

How the hell can you remove the earth from that map.

You'd have to create your own facing worlds map.

I hate it because I cant see messages in the chat window if the earth is behind it. I have to keep aiming elsewhere to catch up on messages.

Yeah I hear ya.

I cannot see into the earth, especially cause I run high everything with textures and to be honest I have trouble telling who is blue and who is red...lol

But seriously, there are ways around this and removing the earth is not called for you know, its part of the game. Also the bug in the middle is actually a fix from the original map.......the tried to fix things and creasted that...oh well nevermind.

All I can say is clan match settings are different for me ;)

that big, bright, bad-ass Earth

Postby Renegadex » Mon May 05, 2003 2:20 pm

I personally like the Earth graphic -- seeing that for the first time was pretty awe-inspiring...

But, just like everyone else, after playing UT for a while I learned that turning OFF the nice features (like music and decals) sped up the game a bit, and let me play better. Now, I wish the "Earth" was GONE.

I personally run the game with LOW detail for the map, and HIGH detail for the actors, so the players STAND OUT.

I agree with Pengy, though -- I wish the damn chat window had some sort of outlining on the font, or some decent alpha-channel-esque dimming in the chat-area around the text, so the text stood out more. It's so important to see that area during a game, even if you're using voice-com.

yeah, sometimes I am waiting with the enemy flag at their base and I know there is a particular shock whore in the middle im trying to avoid. I am waiting for his "death message" and I can see $#!T when the earth passes by.... ugh :-)

This reminds me of a great Peanuts cartoon.

The characters would play baseball a lot, and pretty much sucked at it. One of the outfielders ("Lucy", I think) would always come up with inventive, funny excuses to explain why she would drop fly balls.

One of her best was on a day when the sun was obscured.

She yelled, "the clouds got in my eyes!"

:lol:

well its good to hear im not the only one who has a problem with the earth and moon in the background.

It would be nice if the chat text and the death messages would turn to the negative color when viewed with the earth or moon behind it.


And as for the guy who suggested the LE version of face...there would be a lot of people who would disappear from the server. I personally hate LE and SE. Those bugs in face make the map all the more better.

Agreed, sometimes, when things are slow, it's fun to do naughty things in Face for people that don't know about the exploits. :)

One of my favorites can be done on any map as an admin -- spawn a book and have fun riding it around by shooting at it...wheeeee... :roll:

Scripter

There is a way

Postby Scripter » Tue Jul 01, 2003 9:22 pm

For those who want to know there is a way to remove the earth and sun from Face servers by scripting the file differently just like people do with bots. There is one already around and what it does it removes the earth and sun and replaces them with stars. So when your playing and waitting for that armor on the opposite side...there will be nothing in your field of vision. If admin want to know more about this I will be happy to give more info out...peace

Sure, I'd love to know more about messing with the maps on the server, without increasing the initial download burder (well, much). :)

If it's something that seems like it would be popular, we'll even give it a try. Please PM me if you get the chance.

you can either use abc's tweak:

http://www.freewebs.com/utclanftw/facetex.zip

or you can upload the map that doesn't have the planets, which would give everyone the same "advantage"

I personally play with the planets on and don't really give a rats ass if they blind my xhair every now and then.

My crosshair has been broken for many years - one pixel displays as 25 fuzzy pixels - but the earth background still sucks and I tweak it away :)

But all tweaks are cheats and I should shunned and banned :twisted:

LCD monitor?

There's a fix for that somewhere on the prounreal forums I think.

Yeah, it didn't work for me. But I haven't loaded UT in months, because of nerve pain if I play for more than 5 minutes :(
