Converting DOM to a DM Map

Postby Loose Cannon » Tue Jan 22, 2019 12:38 am

Hi everyone:

I've searched through a bunch of threads (as I'm sure it's been discussed before) and can't seem to find a way to change the gametype of a DOM match to a DeathMatch. In the editor, I changed the gametype through the level properties and deleted the control points. I didn't rebuild as it kept crashing, I just saved the map. After saving, it starts to play ok, but then crashes with a General Protection Fault. I'm sure I'm missing a step or 2 somewhere, but not sure what to do. If anyone has a link of how to change gametypes, it would be most appreciated.

Thanks!

You'll need to look through the actor list and remove the stuff that depends on DOM. The playerstarts may be team coded, stuff like that. If you get stuck send me the map and I'll help you by showing you what to look out for.
So long, and thanks for all the fish

Hi Jack,

I'm not crazy about DOM gametypes. I mainly play offline and thought this might be fun as a DM game as I really liked the atmosphere even though it's a pretty big map. I played around with it but not really sure what I'm looking for in the actor list as far as it pertaining to the actual DOM level. This is a bit out of my league. I appreciate any insight you could give. There's absolutely no hurry with any help...I've just been tinkering with some things when I have time and not too busy with work. Thanks again!

did you get permission from Deathox to edit his map and then post it here?

If not you better ask him or delete your attachment now :/

The map has no brushes so you can't build it anyways...

You're overthinking this, it's not that complicated.

Just rename it from DOM to DM.

I do it all the time, this used to be a DOM · https://unreal-games.livejournal.com/106946.html

That's what I do but a more satisfactory and comprehensive way is to use MrLoathsome's Multi Map Madness as this introduces new gametypes and so (presumably) alters the gametype code.

Frag,
I didn't think about that....I deleted it. Like I said, it's just for my collection/ enjoyment offline. Not sharing with anyone. Thanks.

The ControlPoints (like other game specific actors) have a protection against usage in other game types:
Code: Select all
function PostBeginPlay() {
   if ( !Level.Game.IsA('Domination') )
      return;
   else
      ...

or
Code: Select all
function Touch(Actor Other) {
   if ( !Other.bIsPawn || !Pawn(Other).bIsPlayer || !Level.Game.IsA('Domination') )
      return;
   ...

So they don't cause trouble if the game is not 'Domination'.

Which kind of makes sense, because it would have to have DOM actors to be a "DOM" map, but a DM has all the basic actors to run with.

As opposed to plying-making a DM then changing to play a DOM from renaming.

Thanks OjitroC (and to MrLoathsome). That's a pretty slick gametype code. It worked!

I always liked MonsterMadness' "Us Against Them" as it plays out on ALL maps no matter the gametype.
