19th May 2008, 02:08 AM
This is a fix for the "package not found download was already attempted" error that prevents UT3 server owners from installing custom maps on UT3 servers.

Go to http://www.onsrpg.com/ut3mods.php for download. Includes documentation and all source code (GPL V3).

From the README:

========================
Known problems
========================
When a mapswitch is forced with webadmin the client freezes (P2 should limit the
lenght of this freeze).

R3PORTER does not seem to work together with UT3Fixer, since there is no sourcecode
with R3PORTER I do not know yet how to make them compatible.

========================
What does it do?
========================
This is a fix for the "package not found download was already attempted" error that
prevents UT3 server owners from installing custom maps on UT3 servers. P1 has been
tested on several Unreal servers and does indeed fix this problem there. UT3Fixer
is an ugly hack that seems to do the job. It is a temporary solution allowing server
owners to use custom maps until Epic releases UT3 1.3 which will probably fix the
problem.

It is based on a combination of disabling "seamless travel" while at the same time
still keeping the players connected to the server (disabling seamless travel will
initially kick all players off the server).

PLEASE let me know what side effects this has and with what mutators and gametypes
it is (or is not) compatible.

========================
Changes
========================
P1 -> P2
- Changed logic so things like banning and real connection problems are now properly handled
- Made special versions for use with BattleRPG and Battle Team/Freezetag Arena

========================
Thanks to (for contributions, running servers and suggestions)
