Demo Manager v3.5

Post by anth » Fri Sep 27, 2019 10:24 am

Hello everyone,

I recently updated Demo Manager for the upcoming UT patch and fixed a few bugs in the process. You can grab the files here:

https://github.com/stijn-volckaert/udem ... s/tag/v3.5

Please find the readme below.

Cheers,
anth

---
1) Description
--------------

UsAaR33's UT demo manager adds a lot of functionality to the Unreal Tournament
demo recording and playback system. Some of the key features are:
* A convenient demo browser that lists demos + packages required to play them
* A uz downloader that can download and install packages required for playback
* Commands to record, stop, rename, and delete demos
* 3rd person demo playback
* Demo speed control, seeking, pausing, ...
* ... and many many more (see OriginalReadme.txt for an overview)

Demo Manager 3.5 is an updated version of the original UT demo manager. While
the interface and functionality hasn't changed much, demo manager 3.5 does
include a lot of fixes for rendering glitches, crashes, etc. It also restores a
lot of functionality that broke because of anti-cheat tools such as UTPure,
UTDC, AnthChecker, ACE, etc.

Demo Manager is an open source mod. The code is available at:
https://github.com/stijn-volckaert/udemo

I am accepting pull requests!

2) Installation
---------------

1) Extract every file to the system directory of Unreal Tournament. (e.g.,
c:\unrealtournament\system)
2) Open Unrealtournament.ini (in the system directory)
3) Find the line that says DemoRecordingDevice=Engine.DemoRecDriver
4) Change it to: DemoRecordingDevice=udemo.uDemoDriver

Failure to perform steps 2-4 will prevent usage of the speed control, pausing,
seeking, or any other nice feature of the new demo driver!

3) Change log
-------------

v3.5:
* [ADDED] Compatibility with Unreal Tournament v469
* [FIXED] You can now, once again, save downloaded files in the cache folder

v3.3 beta - build 2009/06/24:

first

* Cerr, DarkByte, Mongo, Yoda, TNSe, Pavel, Garfield, Jack Porter: for their
substantial contributions to the original demo manager
* AnthraX: Started maintaining udemo after v3.0

6) Bugs and feedback

Amazing! I use demomanager so much and I'm really happy to see it worked on. I am currently working on a movie project as well, so the timing cant be more perfect. Time to test.

Um, that's the story, I was asking about a download and maybe starting a discussion about known bugs (and needs) that has to be in account before releasing again something with no use, because UTPG have done changes ruining Editor and testing features - that was not any FIX, it was a removal and the rest of critical things are still sitting there untouched.

Time to bite back
XC_Enginev24 + udemo - recorded two ON-LINE sessions - I don't see any demo...
No_Demo.PNG
No_Demo_1.PNG
I got tired about that M$ C++ which has nothing very comprehensive for users.
After looking at logs I was distracted here:

Code: Select all

UdemoDownload: Download Cancelled by user

XC_Engine: === Last line repeats 2 times.
Log: Attempting to play demo C:\UT\MH-LostMine_Rv19_28-9_18-52-06.dem
I don't get why a previous game recorded having files in CACHE does need a download from servers which won't have required files anyway because some of those things are PRIVATE so far (not logged file but another one), and cache is untouched...
Let's say that I can't wait to see UT 469 + uDemo working together as good friends...
A few seconds later I removed XC_Engine attempting a demo play. It was running for a few seconds and then...
No_Demo_2.PNG
Playing a demo recorded in some adjusted server for me is a myth so far... even if game is running flawless...

Edit: Prior "BTW" UT update
Probably the list with requirements toward adds and fixes to UT is very long - a forum post has limitations but let's mention a few "heat" points forgot or ruined by UTPG:
1) Editor
- showing model number having non-coplanar surface in logs while Level is being build/compiled;
- showing as optional parameter reachSpec Collision data captured by DescribeSpec - What was wrong with you, Epic ? A reachSpec structure has more data than it shows;
- connecting/disconnecting Navigation Points on mapper's demand - adding aerial links or editing certain reachFlags manually. Why Not if NOT.
2) Game-Play
- Fix ENGINE.U file and remove all stupid "//fixme" junks - from natives too;
- Fix UnrealI and UnrealShare - remove Queen's death ignorance during teleporting - it screws EVENT - also encroaching can be removed, its just dumb;
- SetEnemy should never return TRUE for a nearby dead/hidden pawn or a pawn pending deletion or such invalid situation (even immune at damage) - this was very poorly written;
- Capture CPU performance and allow DevPath to work based on CPU power and not hard-coded brain-farts;
- etc.

Demo playback have file dependency, otherwise it just stay stuck... it doesn't even play when I used a dummy .utx to load a demo but it doesn't either when I'm using a dummy .umx file because someone was wanting to play their oldddd demo back in the days. Most of the time the .dem file gets deleted after no recovery I think.

This is the result when I tried to use a different .umx file for the map, which let's say original is no longer there for an example.

Clicking No doesn't play the demo, neither does Yes if it doesn't download it even though it said it was downloaded successfully.
In this case, it'll be Dasbot.umx. Otherwise, it play successfully.

If there is a bypass for this, this may restore many hope for a lot of players who wished to share their old demo online through youtube or whatever. Like beside the Yes and No click box, just let it/say Just play anyway!

* [FIXED] You can now, once again, save downloaded files in the cache folder
* [FIXED] Weapon rendering glitches
I always suffered with this, thanks!

* [FIXED] Sniper rifle not zooming in
I see that this still does not work correctly: zoom starts to increase and immediately reset to the initial.

I can't use github so write a couple of long known UDemo problems here:
- sometimes or in some game modes: not play any sound taunts at all.
- problems with bots under demoplayback: bots text messages displayed twice; every kill is a double kill; pulsegun, minigun sounds are not played.
- Redeemer: camera never switches to a rocket camera (demo in attachment, better playback in timebased mode).
