Problem with UT99

Post by hee » Wed Jan 16, 2019 2:33 am

I do not want to annoy anybody, but I have run into the strangest problem with UT99.

Many years ago I bought the Unreal Anthology (Midway). There were some CTF maps that started out with animals roaming the map (rabbits and cows). They of course did not survive very long during the match. I could also summon all kinds of monsters using the console (or tab). Then for some unknown reason, the animals disappeared and I could no longer summon monsters. The only thing I can summon is the skaarjplayerbot.

So I did without them for many years, but recently I am using the UnrealED.exe to create and modify maps. When I place a monster on the map. It shows it in the editor, but it does not show up in the game (except the skaarjplayerbot). I have tried reinstalling. I have looked for related packages (.u), but nothing works.

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could give me a hint about what might have happened.

Maybe it's cause of bNoMonsters=True in the UnrealTournament.ini? But I'm not sure if it doesn't let you spawn monsters in the match other than not letting you spawn as a monster.

With bNoMonsters=True, monsters can't be summoned via the console.

@hee - the bNoMonsters setting appears several times in the UT.ini, under the various gametypes, so you need to check them all and set bNoMonsters=False.

Thanks. That was it.

-MERGED-

Thanks.

In my defense, I didn't consider that there would be a property for no monsters. I assumed if the designer didn't want monsters, he just wouldn't put them on the map.
