    Another real treat for Unreal Tournament 3 owners: Toltec Studios has released Teotl, the latest version of their award-winning modification The Ball. In case you missed it they've got a new trailer, and then we have the latest screenshots:



    [​IMG][​IMG]



    The bullet list of goodness:

    • At least twice as big as the previous release
    • We have redone large parts of the first three levels.
    • More than 4 hours of singleplay gameplay
    • 100 Percent all new art and content
    • Over 16 secret to discover and one very hard to find shortcut.
    • Solve puzzles and fight monsters in a mysterious world deep inside a volcano!
    • Previous installments have won a triple first prize in the Make Something Unreal contest and was awarded "Best Singleplay Mod of 2008" by ModDB.

    This one's a no-brainer, folks. Grab it now!

    I know what I'll be doing with my free time this weekend.

    Thanks to the modders who do this sort of thing for free. (although from the quality of this, I see some job opportunities for these folks..)

    And thanks to Epic for not turning their backs on UT3, even though it had a very rough release. They could have just abandoned it, but they chose not to.

    Hmm I cannot set my bindings while in the mod (can't set keys at all), not to mention I had to delete the cookedpc ball one from previous installs....beacuse it crashed for me otherwise.

    We are aware of the key issue, will probably look for a way to solve it next release. In the meantime you'll have to use the ini file.

    I had some crash in second level, but maybe it was just crapping out for no reason, I will see next time...
    Anyway I noticed the old levels were redesigned, also they seem easier now kinda.
    I think the not total conversion and the TC should coexist, I mean the one which you choose from UT3 menu and the one with the own menu, but obviously I can't have both in place.

    Keys can be set in the in-game (escape) menu - settings.

    Have fun everyone!

    Ah thanks that worked, but when I went into controls right after the mod loaded there was no way to set them...it doesn't marter beacuse I don't need to rebind them, it said specific settings for mod but no controls(keys)....

    Played through it... Very nice job. Fun to play indeed.

    Those zombies can be fast sometimes.

    I wanted to report a possible BUG?! (and SPOILER ALERT!!!)

    At the part where you have to kill 4 zombies coming out of the floor by having them crushed by spikes from the ceiling, there is a short cinematic sequence after opening the last door that eventually sends the ball back down to the floor. After the cinematic seq, it wouldn't return to the player screen. I had to suicide to continue playing.

    We never experienced something like that. Kismet can be weird, it is not super reliable. It works 9 out of 10 times, and then it goes wrong on that what worked 9 times in a row.

    Just played and finished it, really awesome mod and great improvements from the first parts. I havnt exspected any serious bugs and never lost the ball, but i would recommend somethink like a hint where the ball currently is, maybe some kind of a compass that shows its direction.
    little things i found:
    - the scoreboard shows "The Ball, Pehua" all the time
    - TheBall_Readme.txt line 68 shows example of TheHaunted mod

    thx a lot to the whole Toltec Studios team, very well done at all aspecs, looking forward to "cave of sun" or what the next part is called :)
