Patch available for download

Actually I wanted to wait until beyondunreal would finally host the patch but for some reason, nothing happens there, either they are extremely busy or .. whatever.
For those who dont want to wait I can offer at the moment only those shitty filehoster download links:

This sucks! A patch for a map-pack? Yes, you're right,
but some bugs in the XPickups system and in some
of the maps have made the development of this patch
necessary. Our apologies!

To cut a long story short: This is not a complete
map-pack, but a patch for the UT99.org CMP2, also
adding 2 new DM maps: Arctic Decay to show off the new
Double Speed power-up and Compressed 3 as an extra
to spice the patch up a bit. Also it fixes some bugs
in other map files and the XPickups system.

NOTE: This pack requires files from the original Community Mappack 2 to work!

Here's the changelog:

XPICKUPS

- Generally optimized net performance and fixed bugs
- Added new pickup: Double Speed
- Added XPickups mutator so the new items can be used in every custom map
- Added custom arena mutators: X Sniper Arena, X Shock Arena and X Rocket Arena, all using XPickups weaponry
- Added Berserk support for custom weaponry, not by doubling the firerate, but by doubling the damage
- Added full custom weapons support (but only for pickup chargers, weapon lockers will still
show the listed weapon meshes, but it will give the mutated weapons)
- Added special support for the Rocket-X mutator/gametype (just set bRXMode=True in XPickups.ini)
- Added Jump Boots counter (now you can see how many jumps you have left)
- Jump Boots jumps are now acumulative, so you can get up to 15 jumps by collecting more Jump Boots
- Fixed rotation rate of custom weapons online
- Weapon lockers now support 4 teams
- Fixed BattleSuit power loop sound issue
- Fixed bWeaponStay for SP (but only in the pickup chargers, in Single Player bWeaponStay is
ignored in the weapons placed alone around the map)
- Fixed Accessed:None errors in the Weapon Locker
- Fixed WearedOffEvent and DroppedEvent triggering (they were both triggered at death)

- Added special XPickups mutator functions for mappers.
If you want to make a map with XPickups compatibility, but don't want it to be a necessary download for it,
just change the tags (Event > Tag) of the pickups you place on the map as follows:
Items tagged "BerserkPickup" will be replaced by Berserk
Items tagged "DoubleSpeedPickup" will be replaced by Double Speed
Items tagged "BattleSuitPickup" will be replaced by the Battle Suit
Items tagged "HelmetPickup" will be replaced by the Helmet
For instance you can place a normal UDamage in your map and set its tag to "BerserkPickup"
to make it the Berserk power-up in case the XPickups mutator is used.
This way your map will not depend on XPickups to work, but will use the new pick-ups if you enable the mutator.

* The mutator won't activate in maps where XPickups is already applied (if the map contains the XReplacer actor).

Final notes:
- This pack was fully tested with ZP weapons (ZeroPing V2.10), and worked well.
However these weapons obey the custom weapon rules instead of this pack's weapon rules,
meaning they won't have their firerate doubled with Berserk and they will have
the standard translucent power-up effect rather than the overlay one.
- Some ZP mutators give the Impact Hammer priority over the Enforcer when you respawn.
This pack was tested under a previous version of ZP and this "bug" occured
however in the case of ZeroPing V2.10 it does not, making this issue a ZP bug unrelated to XPickups.
- When playing any Arena mutator together with this pack, be sure to apply the XPickups mutator AFTER the Arena,
since otherwise most ammo pickups won't be replaced.


DARGROK

- Lighting/textures/sounds changed at the slime and the teleporters
- Separated kill triggers for much better performance
- Changed the position of Sniper Ammo to evade an error
- Changed speed of the movers in the two side towers

Well, the server is updated with the patched xpickups file, it SHOULD work. (And afaik shade also udpated and added the patch maps). Anyway if something happens, I can not do anything because shade is the only one here who can config the server.

Yikes! I just starting playing these maps and realized I forgot to apply the patch.:) Also, is there a reason why the xloc doesn't work for at least the CTF maps?

The.. what? I dont know what you mean (hopefully Ferali knows), but if I understand that as a bug report, a second patch (of the xpickups files only) is in production. So keep on! Report all bugs you can find and Ferali tries to fix what is possible.

I think I know what he means. You mean the xloc translocator? What do you mean when you say it doesn't work (doesn't it get replaced, or does it get replaced but has the functions working wrong, or do you mean the overlayers from the pickups)?

Tell me what exactly doesn't work, because I want to launch an update soon (didn't launch last weekend since I had pretty much work to do that weekend and still have during all this week).

And if anyone else has any bugs to report, go ahead now, because the next patch might be most likelly the last one (due to my other project in production).

the xloc (or translocator for the full name) just doesn't come up at all. I hit the button and it or anything else does not appear. I remain holding whatever weapon I was holding before I tried to switch to the xloc. Are there xpickups settings in the game menu I need to adjust? I also have a few comments on the maps, some of which may or may not be bugs. Which thread would be the best to post these in? (i already posted it somewhere else in the forum)

That's really weird. I played around with the settings of the translocator in the maps, and it always appeared when it should. Just one thing though, what's your version of UT and are you using a custom key set in the ini to fast use of the translocator (like 'Q' for example to select it or hold it?)? If so, try to select it the normal way (with the mouse scroll or '1' in the keyboard). If it doesn't appear at all with the custom key, but it's there with the regular ones, I think I know what the problem is (just have to confirm one thing in my source though).
I believe you aren't using a custom xloc (from the way you described the problem), but even so, it should be working.

I'm using Q and the thumb on an MX518 mouse. I didn't even try the normal way; I'll try that tonight. I didn't think it would make any difference.
