Movement Locator

Post by EvilGrins » Mon Apr 11, 2016 9:08 am

Those that see it in screenshots ask about it periodically... but even though nobody's asked to get a copy, I find experience is the best teacher.

Random screenshot:
Image
I got it off a Russian UT site and it came with no directions or even a readme file, so this is guesswork based on usage:
· It reacts to movement. If there's a monster or player in range it won't notice them unless they move.
· Range seems to be roughly within visual firing distance.
· Those it picks up are displayed as dots: red, white, or yellow. Yellow seems to be an active threat indicator.
· Players on your own team are shown as a dot with a number next to it. Numbers based on when they 1st spawned into the game.

That's about it. Can be confusing if it picks someone up on a multi-level map that you can't immediately see where they are, like on the floor directly above you.

Also can be tricky when it detects flying monsters.

MLRegisterFire - Register firing of weapons as movement. (Admin)
MLRegisterAltFire - Register altfiring of weapons as movement. (Admin)
MLFireDistance <INT> - Radius of which firing of weapons will register on the scope. (Suffix with "m" to use meters rather than UUs.)

Guess I should peek at source code more often.... :tu:

Another advantage this thing has is if you're "flying" a redeemer around the map, the radar only monitors your position. Handy way to make sure nobody is sneaking up on your body while your eyes are where the redeemer is going.

Neat-o burrito.
Thank you, I was planning on making a new HUD and a radar seems like a nice addition.

Well... if the radar's cool and you like HUD stuff, why not a compass?

I got no idea what in UT specifies which way North is, but both the compass and the radar seem to agree on the direction.

North is basically the negative Y IIRC. UT doesn't keeps track of directions, but I'll use the radar and compass as well as a mini-map when doing my (GTA-style?) freeroam map. (like DM-Airport, but you really roam, talk to the Nalis in the village, drive vehicles, clear the Skaarjs that raid the village sometimes, etc.) But let's not deviate too much from the topic.

I want to create a new HUD in a mutator so it is optional, to give a fresh feel to the game. I think both the Combat Arms HUD or the Planetside 2 HUD would fit well, but both have a radar which I had no idea how I would replicate. This helps a lot.

Apparently the guy (Olethros) that made the locator also made this:

That sounds handy, though I haven't tried it yet.

this movement locator is broken so I need a working radar as I have tried radar mutator, shows enemies as green & the monsters on radar are so big all i see is massive green squares, I tried pheonix radar basically the same & has a sound that makes noise for a long time & can't turn off the sound every setting on the radars & movement locator has no effect on radar like it is locked for changing colour or sound, so I am looking for a non broken radar as no one can tell me what program to use to create my own radar & i have searching ever site on creating, making, designing, custom radars & nothing not 1 program i can find so i likie help with this.

UT compass does not work, i try use with 0 mutator just UT compass & i get nothing on screen, I have read & done step by step on how to make every mutator work some work but are way to big it takes up whole radar which i can't see anything in set for big squares or noises so loud where enemies get close i can't even heard explosions in game, does anyone know how to create a good working radar or do i have to create one & show everyone what a radar is meant to be & how it is meant to work?

Don't you think you would get more sympathy and understanding if you formatted your big walls of text proper, and made them easier to read?

it is broken because the beeping sound does not turn off & when it beeps & you kill player it continues tom beep lower & lower for some time before you can't hear it & it is that loud music goes quiet & i can't hear anyone coming,no way to shut it up

That's annoying, but it's not broken.

I usually "turn it off" by cycling through player views with F5.

The beeping sound can be turned off by typing

Code: Select all

ML_Command MLSound
in the console. This command will take effect the NEXT time you start UT (that's what I did - it doesn't take effect immediately the command is typed in the console. I don't know if it takes effect if one starts another game after typing it in - I didn't try that but anyone interested can experiment with that).

Alternatively go to Advanced Options -> Mutators where you will see MovementLocator2 - you can alter any of the options there. Have a look at the readme first to get an idea of what the options are/do.

Lastly, the first run of this mutator creates an .ini file (MovementLocator2.ini) in your System folder - a number of the options can be altered manually in this .ini (including turning the sound on or off).
