    sinx has finally released a public alpha of MapMixer for UT3. I have tried it out and it seems to add quite a bit to UT3 even though its still in an alpha test stage.

    A quick few of the many features are;
    -Extended control of Map rotations
    -Game type rotations
    -Mutator selections within game types (The translocator now works in DM maps!)
    -Per level player counts
    -Randomization of game types
    -Randomization of maps
    -Randomization of goal scores, and much more!


    I have run the public alpha with great results. Admittedly, this "mutator" is not quite finished, and the documentation of how to configure all of the settings has not been compiled as yet. I'm sure that anyone that has used MapMixer with UT 2003 or UT 2004 will be able to find their way through the menu relatively easy. I can't emphasize just how much the variations that MapMixer offers helps in the playability of UT3, especially for the servers!

    Please remenber, this is an alpha build. I highly recommend that you backup your UT3 files and settings before installing. While the final version and the documentation is being compiled, I would be happy to attempt to assist anyone here in configuring thier settings here. Just post back in this thread, and I will see if I can assist.

    God I love MM. Thank sinx so much for sticking with it, looked like it was tough going for a while there.

    Unfortunately, Oceana isn't letting me download even after making an account. I suspect I need to activate the account, but it hasn't sent me anything to let me do that despite a valid email.

    Ah-ha. Indeed.

    Unfortunately, Oceana refuses to allow me to activate my account, so I can't do s*** right now. I can't post in his board, I can't download the mod... Is there any way to delete my account so I can try creating another account in case I f***ed something up the first time?

    Is there any other place he can host it? Please?

    Try downloading again, sinx just posted in the Epic forums;
    "With any luck, people shouldn't have to register on oceaniaut.com to download MM anymore. However, I might take this opportunity to point local people in Australia to that site if they haven't already: www.oceaniaut.com. They've been a great support to me in hosting my project."

    I honestly could never understand how to get Mapmixer to work with UT2k4... hopefully i'll figure it out with this version.

    Maybe I can help!

    The delete option is one of the issues that sinx is trying to fix at the moment. Is seems that UT3 doesn't provide an option to clear lists at the moment. That being said, be careful what you add. To clear any settings that you inadvertently add try replacing or removing the following;
    UTMapMixer_Client.ini
    UTMapMixer_ListsGameRules.ini
    UTMapMixer_ListsMapDefaults.ini
    UTMapMixer_ListsMaps.ini
    UTMapMixer_ListsMapSources.ini
    UTMapMixer_ListsMutators.ini
    UTMapMixer_Session.ini
    UTMapMixer.ini

    I have not tried this yet, so not all of these files may need to be deleted.
    You may not need to delete UTMapMixer_MapDatabase.ini, but if you do, I'm fairly certain that MM will need to rescan your maps.

    If that doesn't start up fresh, try deleting all MM files in your UT3 folder and install from scratch.

    After working with MM over the years, I have found it easier to config MM in the following order;
    1. Create Game types (I always add Instagib)
    2. Create Map Lists
    3. Create Source Lists
    4. Config Mutators
    5. Config Rules
    6. Change Map Defaults if needed
    7. Finally config the Setup menu.

    Otherwise PM me and I'll see if I can assist!

    sinx has released alpha 5 of MapMixer. There have been lots of changes and bugs fixed since alpha 3 and 4. Grab it over at the MapMixer web site (no registration required). And please remember that this is still in the alpha stage.

    But if you want to spend time in the UI (which a lot of people like to do), it makes it a lot better.

    And being able to enable UT3 auto switching game types, does make UT3 much better. Not to mention all of the other configs that are possible. Also, don't forget that the Bots Factions config has now been enabled in MM.

    The launch>mapmixer section is just too damn confusing. I just dont understand it.

    When I go to launch>Quick Match, is this basically instant action? Why can't I set a prefferred team? Even when I hit escape, it wont let me swap to the blue team when I enter a match. Why can't the list save the preffered view option? I wish it to stay at thumbnail2 view everytime.

    *edit* figured out the team preferance.

    The quick match is basically instant action and bypasses the MapMixer config.

    It comes in handy when you wish to try out a new map that your not sure that you would want to keep in your UT3 Custom Maps folder.
