HELP PLEASE - CONNECTION DENIED [dreamcast]

Post by got-shadow » Thu Dec 02, 2021 5:00 pm

Friends, please I need some help with this problem.
If necessary, I can give a bonus to those who help me.

I opened a server and I'm trying to connect to it, but I'm not able to.
Unfortunately I can't change the client version, only the server version.

It seems to be a texture error, but I wanted to know in detail how to work around it, it doesn't matter what texture I'll use and if it will have bugs, the important thing for me will be tricking the server, I know here you have great connoisseurs of this engine.
So if you can help me, I'm very new to this and this job is very important to me.

Kindly appreciate the help.
Below is the console log.

Well, first thing I see is obsolete master servers, the gamespy one especially has to be removed. Follow these instructions, and see if it helps: https://333networks.com/instructions

I'm not aware about VER=413 if it is not having some NULL stuff getting called which was implemented later in whatever 436 - 451 and in this case cannot be aligned to client with missing object, and then... rejection is expected.

Oh guy thanks for your reply.

Well i really cant Access the client log, because it's a Sega Dreamcast Console, cant update version too lol.
But i can edit some things on server files and on dreamcast cd.


The only one information that sega dreamcast show is connection dennied.

I need understand how this game work to try to fix this issues.

Maybe some tips can give me a direction, where can i find this kind of texture?
Its came from botpack? From map?

Failed to load 'Texture SoldierSkins.3': Failed to find object 'Texture SoldierSkins.3'
Failed to load SoldierSkins.3
Failed to load 'Texture SoldierSkins.4': Failed to find object 'Texture SoldierSkins.4'
Failed to load SoldierSkins.4

Thanks really.

Oh... now I'm stuck... I never used a console for playing UT. Without looking in logs chances to figure issue are harder to manage.

Well...ok...
Only advice i can give you from this point on is...consider trying out the original computer versions if you haven't, cause they are really the way UT was meant to be played.
Those console ports existed to try to get a portion of the "bigger" console market...but they are not optimal. They are really hard, if not impossible, to modify or customize. Seriously, at this point, 20+ years, only computer versions will have some sort of support at least from the community.

A few questions :
1 What happens if you remove master0.gamespy.com and master.mplayer.com and just try to connect to shumania.ddns.net?

2 What happens if you use the Male Commando or Female Commando/Soldier modesl and skins and try to connect to those servers? Do you get the same error?

3 Can you play off-line/locally using the Male Soldier model and SoldierSkins.sldr skin? If so, does it work OK?

4 Are you able to look in the .int file for the SoldierSkins? You should see this (for the Soldier)

Are you able to look in SoldierSkins.utx and check that all the necessary skins are there?

Basically, I don't think the issue is to do with the texture but doing 2, 3 and 4 above will provide more evidence one way or another.

Hi friends, thanks for the answers.
After several tests I found that the error occurs in soldierskin.utx

The client looks for a texture called soldierskins.3 and soldierskins.4

For example he finds the following successfully:
SoldierSkins.blkt3': SoldierSkins.blkt4': SoldierSkins.blkt1T_0
SoldierSkins.blkt1
SoldierSkins.blkt2T_0 SoldierSkins.blkt3
SoldierSkins.blkt4

What I would need is to add this soldierskin.3 and soldierskin.4 manually into the soldierskins.utx file

It doesn't matter if you use a repeated texture.
Does anyone know a tool that can edit this?

Teach me step by step, I've never dealt with anything about textures, or even if someone can include these textures and pass me the finished file, I believe that for you who are experts it shouldn't be difficult. I use version v413.

Even if someone has whatsapp and can add me, I can pay for these fitting works.

Thank you friends.

The one thing that has me curious, from all this is...ok, here comes another noob question from me (cause I really...really...have no idea :noidea ). Can the Dreamcast version, or any console version in fact, be modded? I mean, it is usually some sort of ROM, isn't it?

Hey dude how are you?
Ya dreamcast and consoles versions can be modded.
Is it like a rom? Yes, but you can extract files, edit and recompiling.

Any idea how to fix this texture problem?
Thanks.

I am giving it some thought. However, about modifiying the utx, you have to be careful, cause you could get a file mismatch on some servers.
EDIT: or maybe...try putting the utx in another folder temporarily ( not delete it), and try connect to the server, so it loads their version of the utx.

Its loading correctly
But the error change, because dreamcast is trying loading next things....
I think we just need continue including the textures and it will load.

Automatically merged

OjitroC is helping me, this guy is saving my life, he add the new texture and dreamcast loading more and error change hehehe.
I think if OjitroC add more textures to me, this can be revive.
Omg thanks OjitroC

All of that suggests that the problem is not the textures. It's looking for textures that don't exist and it doesn't seem to recognise the groups in SoldierSkins.utx (like blkt, Gard, etc).

As I asked before
1 Can the client play locally using the Male2 model and SoldierSkins?
2 Can the client connect to the server using one of the other default models (Male Commando, Female Commando/Soldier)?

If the answer to 1 is yes, then there is no inherent problem with the texture file.

If the answer to 2 is no, then there is a problem with the connection per se. If the answer is yes, there is a problem with Male2/SoldierSkins but in the absence of logs it is difficult to diagnose.

Do we know if 405 can connect to 413 anyway?

Sorry to be negative but I'm not sure that adding textures that don't and shouldn't exist to the SoldierSkins.utx is going to solve the problem.
