Unreal 2 v1403 Patch

The first official patch for Unreal II adding a long list of fixes, changes, and additions for the game and the U2 editor. See more information for further details.

Crash Fixes for v1403

- Updated DefOpenAL32.dll which should fix EAX-related PlaySound crashes.

- Fixed VerifyImport crash (occurred when level changed after game settings modified).

- Fix for IKey assertion (crash) due to "special" keys on some keyboards (e.g. internet enabled keyboards).

- Fixed crash if some items used after they've been destroyed (fixes crash in MM_Marsh if player destroys force field as squad leader tries to disable it for example).

- Additional fix for decolayer density change for Sulferon Assault (and other maps with corrupt terrain info's).

- Possible fix for DirectMusic-related "GetEventTool" crashes.

- Fixed bug report system sometimes crashing or silently failing due to long URLs.

- Fixed GetOggDuration crash if –nosound used.

- Fix for sound-related crash when exiting some levels with DirectX 9.

Performance for v1403

- 10% improvement in golem mesh rendering performance.

- Fixed unnecessary particle lighting overhead problem.

- For performance reasons, most carcasses are cleaned up more quickly now.

- For performance reasons (mainly in marsh) dropped energy rifles are cleaned up after 10 seconds.

- M08B: improved performance by making sure generator rotating movers only rotate when they are visible.

- MM_Marsh: added field generator and turret to PreCacheList to avoid hitches when these appear.

- M12: fixed particle overhead.

- Added new code/changes to limit overhead due to ragdoll deaths (see "Advanced Tips for Improving Performance" in the readme for details).

Fixes for v1403

- Sound fixes. Should reduce occurrences of sound "stuttering" that some people have had due to sound overload / thrashing.

- Fixed player dodge speed and height. Can be modified via user.ini settings (see DodgeXYVelocityScale and DodgeJumpZScale in the [U2Pawn] section).

- M03A1: gave ammo to merc with grenade launcher.

- M08B: lowered carcasses, blood to floor.

- M09E: fix for 2 fems staying "inert" if the fem with the RL is killed before being triggered.

- Fixed damage warnings (accessed nones) along with fix for damage effects (blood) being spawned so far inside character's mesh that it doesn't show up (currently only affects mukhoggs).

- Sunlight fix (flickering in waterfront and potentially other places).

- MM_Waterfront: fall out of world fix.

- M12: fixed sun disappearing in opening cutscene with ParticleDensity=0. Also CS_Outro, PA_Acheron, PD_Acheron.

- Display gamma/brightness/contrast values when changed via F10/F11/F12 keys.

- Fix for inert skaarj lying prone on bank in M08B (skaarj will now react to hearing the player even if player bypasses trigger).

- Fix for "Joe's" script breaking in M10_Avalon in some cases.

- Fixed changing actor detail level in-game could result in invisible NPCs (in TutA).

- Made key bindings delete button more obvious (click on this to delete key bindings).

- Fix from Jason Yu for bots sometimes not respawning after being killed in botmatches.

- Added files needed to fix umod support. The umod registry settings will also need to be modified for Unreal II umods to work. We're working on making a separate downloadable installer for this but in the meantime, people who installed the game in the default folder can click on the .reg file in Unreal2Help.

- Increased crawling spider damage by 3x.

- Fixed rammers not attacking properly.

- Fix for Golem references being lost resulting in “invisible” NPCs if game saved/loaded prior to spawning in NPCs which use a mesh which is no longer in the level.

- Fixed music not playing issue with some levels.

Changes for v1403

- Added carcass cleanup particle effect.

- Added support for modifying player movement speed via Unreal2.ini setting (for the duration of the game). For example, to increase the player's movement speed by 50% set PlayerSpeedRatio=1.5 in the [U2GameInfo] section.

- M08B: fixed trigger that player could avoid.

- Added 70 and 72 Hz to refresh rates options.

- Support for scaling the hud / ui to better support multiple monitor setups. This can now be controlled via the ScaleX, ScaleY, OffsetX, - OffsetY properties in the [UI.UIConsole] section in Unreal2.ini. For example, use ScaleX=0.333 and OffsetX=0.333 for three screen support.

- Added "mouse over" context information for the EAX check box. Warns against enabling EAX on non-Audigy / Audigy 2 cards and warns about possible performance issues.

AI for v1403

- Mod authors can once again enable script warnings / errors by setting bDisableErrorMessages=false (by default all script warnings / errors are silent). These were completely disabled for RC7 with the intent of re-enabling these for the patch. Note that you have to enable the Component=Console.MessageArea line in UIScriptsUI.ui (remove the ";") to see debug messages in-game.

Editor for v1403

- Fix for not being able to paint on terrain in editor.

- Fix for terrain build crash if no terrain map in level.

- Fixed editor "first run" (UnrealEd.ini added to system folder).

- Fixed WBrowserStaticMesh::UpdateMenu crash.

- Fixed crash if you clicked on delete in the decolayer terrain tool, without a decolayer actually being selected.

Testing / Stats for v1403

- Improved in-game profiling support / logging.

- Improved in-game stats. Added "stat lock".

Other for v1403

- Added Mike Lambert to in-game credits.
