ReadMe for BattleRPG V10.1

====================================================================================

Author: Nico de Vries

Platform: Unreal Tournament 3 (Tested with UT3 1.2)

Website: BigBattleServers.com (the forum can be used for feedback and requests)

Release date: April 13 2008

Version: V10.1

====================================================================================

Installation (server administrator manual)

====================================================================================

Windows stand-alone:

Store the .u and .upk file(s) in your ..\UTGame\Published\CookedPC\ directory

and the .ini file(s) in your ..\UTGame\Config\ directory. If you have multiple

users in Windows make sure you use the proper My Games directory.

Windows dedicated server:

Store the .u and .upk file(s) in your ..\UTGame\CookedPC\ directory and the

.ini file(s) in your ..\UTGame\Config\ directory.

Linux:

Store the .u and .upk file(s) in your ../UTGame/CookedPC/ directory and the

.ini file(s) in your ../UTGame/Config/ directory.

For servers you need to add to the command line: ?Mutator=BattleRPG.BattleRPG

REMARK: the .uc files in the SourceFiles directory contain sourcecode for those who are

interested in that. They are not needed to use and run BattleRPG.

The SpecialVersions directory contains 2 customized versions of BattleRPG designed

to work with Galtanors Invasion and UT3 Invasion. Use the BattleRPG.u files in the

SpecialVersions directories instead of the one in the root directory in combination

with the Invasion gametype. The ZIP containing the Invasion gametype has been included

(with permission from the authors) to make it easy to install the right versions

together. The custom versions of BattleRPG might or might not work with future versions

of the Invasion gametypes. The special versions of BattleRPG also support all standard

gametypes (except deathmatch), but can only be used on systems where the Invasion

gametype has also been installed.

The SpecialVersions directory also contains 2 alternative configurations for BattleRPG.

Besides the "Standard Edition" UTBattleRPG.ini in the root of the zip there is also the

"Class Edition" where a player can choose between 3 classes: Warrior, Medic and Magician.

There also is the "Extreme Edition" for those who like it extreme.

====================================================================================

Manual for players.

====================================================================================

With BattleRPG each player gets a persistent level and persistent experience. This

means the server keeps a database and remembers your achievements permanently. For

each point you score you get experience, if you have enough experience you go to

the next level:

* The first 25 levels are very easy to get players to learn how RPG works

* Reaching level 80 requires some serious playing but is doable

* Level 100 is tougher to reach

* Over level 100 it becomes hard

* Over level 110 it becomes extremely hard

Besides experience and levels you also collect Mana. Mana is not persisent, if you

leave the server you lose your Mana. Mana can be used for artifacts and for the

Ultra GIB and Quantum weapon magic.

For each level you get some RPG$. With those RPG$ you can buy abilities. You can

press the L button to open the BattleRPG menu and start buying (or selling) abilities.

Examples of abilities are "Health bonus", "Weapon speed", "Vampirism" and "Quick foot".

BattleRPG also has magic weapons. Examples of magic are "Quantum", "Bounce",

"Knockback" and "Ultra GIB".

BattleRPG also has artifacts. Examples of artifacts are "God Mode", "Spiderpig"

and "Mana Gambling".

====================================================================================

Manual for developers.

====================================================================================

BattleRPG has been made with extensibility in mind. This means it is relatively easy

for UnrealScript developers to create custom abilities, custom artifacts or custom

magic and use those with BattleRPG.
