Help, what is BR gametype?

Post by EvilGrins » Thu Feb 25, 2021 11:50 am

I tend to download maps in bulk, so I occasionally get something by accident because I largely wasn't paying attention at the time.

So I noticed a bit ago I have map called BR-(SLV)DaewonsHall.

What gametype is "BR" exactly?

BR stands for Bombing Run. The only UT99 conception of it that I've ever found sucks, sadly. Very buggy and very bot unfriendly. Maybe it's the wrong one?

Also, sadly it does not stand for Brazil. Lamentable.

Not sure that's a "fix". It kinda negates the post, where that question was asked.

Might've been better to rename it to "Help me identify a gametype" or something.

Uhm.... no? It's... kind of the same thing. You already knew the prefix, so it wouldn't be contradicting or rely on information that was hitherto unknown.

What does it matter now, anyway? Might as well just put the answer as the title, in big bold caps, in square brackets. Would be more helpful!

Burger-CTF is also some kind of Bombing Run.

Ah do you not know Bombing Run ? It was the best failed thing in the failure that was UT2003 and I loved it.
It's basically CTF except you don't have to bring back the enemy flag to your own base and only one played in the team can score at any given time and when he's trying to do so, he can't shoot but regenerates.
You must construct additional pylons.

ProTip 1: anybody using the phrase "I'm a True Fan and You're Not!" is an obnoxious, self-centered, egotistical, elitist, narcissist douchebag.
ProTip 2: anybody who uses the "Royal We" when making a demand wants to pass their own opinion as everyone else's.
ProTip 3: Only the people that do nothing but criticize don't make mistakes. Do things. Make mistakes. Learn from them. And screw those who do nothing but throw poison and criticize.
ProTip 4: If the Duke Nukem Forever fiasco wasn't enough of a lesson, perfectionism leads to nothing positive. Don't be afraid of releasing a buggy product. Even the most polished product has its flaws.
