Ok, to clarify this for me ...you can now hammer jump and rifle jump, correct?

If yes is the hammer jump now redundant.
You should give both weapons unique benefits for the player and not put one significant function into both weapons.
You would just make the rifle over powered.

Take away the selfdamage of the hammer and use the rifle for sniping only and everything would be fine and this mod will certainly gain player.

I try to make hammer jump without selfdamage. Rifle jump will be the same.

It would be better that the player did a hammer jump higher than in original game?

What do you mean? to use rifle as a sniper rifle without rifle jump?

Here the same... :wink:

I meant...
Sniper Rifle only instaSniper.
And
Hammer only close combat with hammer jump and no selfdamage.

Then you have a good combination of tools.

rifle jump is use by the player shock waves from explosion. For removal of rifle jump it is necessary to remove a blast wave from explosion. I cant do it. blast wave - important feature of my mutator.

Code: Select all

function bool CheckReplacement(Actor Other, out byte bSuperRelevant)
{
<snip>
         if (Other.IsA('ZoneInfo'))
                ZoneInfo(Other).DamagePerSec = 700; 
<snip>
}
You shouldn't do things like this. You're going to break so many maps.
So long, and thanks for all the fish

in the new version i have

Code: Select all

    if (Other.IsA('ZoneInfo'))
                ZoneInfo(Other).DamagePerSec = 60; 
It makes the game more hardcore, right?

What's the idea behind this?
And more: a mutator should not do unexpected things; in this case I guess nobody expects that a weapon mutator affects environment also. At least make it configurable.
At last a hint to OOP: you don't need to copy existing code to create a modified version of an existing item (I stumbled over that with your Belt class that extends TournamentPickup). Create a sub class and change properties and override functions as needed.

This is not weapon mutator and mutator has its own configuration
Yes, the danger zones are very dangerous in my mutator.Таке Shieldbelt 8). But players can play and win in these conditions. This Mutator is designed not for entertainment but for serious and relentless struggle against players and bots. If Player play well, he cant to get into the danger zone. This is hardcore gameplay mutator.

This needs to be made clear in the Readme file and possibly the name of the mutator should reflect this as well - at the moment, it does look like a weapon mutator from the name.

But the user cannot disable or adjust your arbitrary chosen value of 60. At least a solution like this would fit better:

Code: Select all

var() float DamagePerSecAdjust;
...
	ZoneInfo(Other).DamagePerSec *= DamagePerSecAdjust;
...

defaultproperties {
	DamagePerSecAdjust=1.1
}

See this Zone setup - yes, it is changed to very dangerous by your mutator. :ironic:

Another example: the mapper has connected two areas by a tunnel that makes damage in that way that you cannot pass it with default health, but with a mover that shortens the time of passing. If DamagePerSec is increased, passing may be impossible then.

Just take it as advices, I don't want to spend time convincing someone not listening. In this case this was my last post in this thread. :wink:

One additional remark:
InstaSniperSP.bat
Show

Code: Select all

UnrealTournament.exe -INI=InstaSniperSP.Ini
But in your archive "InstaSniperV2.0.rar" you have a copy of file "UnrealTournament.exe" renamed to "InstaSniperSP.exe".
