    UT2Vote52 Beta 1

    This only has a few changes:

    1. New BroadcastHandler
    Maybe Patch3369 has a rabbit in its bag as UT2Vote has now been compiled using the 3369 UT2004 code.
    Please test out the Chatlogs and Player Muting.
    Then test it with UAdmin and or ServerExt108 and maybe OLStats if you use that.

    2. Admin Messages
    The messages that are written to the Admin from the MapMenu will now go in a seperate UT2VoteAdminMesg.ini file.
    Please make sure this works ok as I've had several requests for this.

    http://www.proasm.com/files/beta/ut2v52b1.zip

    Basically if this new BH works ok with everything then fine we keep it.
    BUT if it shows incompatability problems with UAdmin or any other mod then we keep what we got and stay with UT2Vote51
    I'm banking a lot on the 3369 code here as 3339 did not help us much.

    Hell do you realize its over 6 months since we released UT2Vote51 (11th June) - wow time is going like a rocket.

    not saying it shouldn't be done... not my call..but i totally disagree with making new everything simply because of serverext108. everything i have werks 100% now. just seems like a lot of work and effort. i'll obviously test what i can..just giving my opinion.. (this goes for zound and ut2vote)

    I would appreciate them tested frogger.
    Theoretically it should work ok.
    Where can I get UAdmin or whatever it is you guys use.
    I need to check if it uses the new or old way.

    I found the following in B2 during testing:

    1. UT2VoteAdminMesg.ini will added to the system folder. It is also written in the log file but I got this strange messages


    The first line is the strange thing because at that time I haven't had installed the UT2Vote52B2, I do no know this nickname, I haven't had written this letters. Only the last four lines are written by me. Is that first line from you?

    Is it possible also to get the UT2VoteAdminMesg.ini written in the UserLog folder?


    2. In the UT2VoteChatLog are written all chats twice. So you have all lines double.

    Hahaha..... LOL, c9 is me when I feel like hiding away :)

    Yes it is possible but I prefer not to do that as the Admin messages are so few and to leave a log file open all the time cause lag on slower servers.

    Really!! - could you show me an example log please.

    Frogger, seeing you did beta testing for TBone, could you please ask him for his BroadcastHandler class as I see he also removes his code.

    Good heavens, when did it start doing this or is this the first time you used the chatlogs.

    mmm ok thanks.
    Anyways I partially reversed engineered UAdminModV095b and I see he also uses the new method 'RegisterBroadcastHandler' in his latest 'b' version so our Zound and UT2Vote Beta 2's should now all live in harmony :)
    What I have done in Beta 3 is it now looks for Zound52 and previous and if found switches BH's so that the 2 remain compatible.
    I did the same with Zound where it looks for UT2Vote51 and before.

    Hahaha..... LOL,:stick: :crazydance:



    Never seen this "driss" before :lol:
    No kidding, I always use ChatLogs since they exist in UT2Vote. It is the first time I see this double writing and it happens first in UT2Vote52B2.

    Ben, certainly you can remember my server crash prob which I have mentioned in the following thread: :(

    http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showthread.php?t=165252


    This prob still exists as described above. After I really could not find the reason for the crashes I want to ask you if you could have a look at the level switch procedure in the UT2Vote. Maybe there is something which could causes these crashes without any definite reason.

    Should I post my Vote.ini here? Maybe something in my settings which I have in fact since a long time unchanged is responsible for it so that only my server crashes (in combination with patch 3355 or the new 3369).

    I just tested UT2Vote52B2 with UAdminMod95b. The "CustomMessages" now work in all gametypes, where before they did not. Most admins who have AS servers use the CustomMessages in UAdmin must use version 49 of UT2Vote so that they will work. Versions after that broke the messages in UAdmin. This new version fixes that issue across all gametypes it seems. Admin messages work both with & without UAdminMod enabled. It is written to a seperate ini file & the chat there is not in duplicate as it is in the normal chat log.

    Another problem is also no longer an issue:
    The vote menu did not popup at the end of the game in AS (version 49). Now it does for all gametypes I have tested.

    Side Note: UAdminMod95b does spam the server log randomly with a warning (see below).

    Code:
    Warning: UAMReplicationInfo None (Function UAdminModV095b.UAMReplicationInfo.GetURI:0022) Accessed None 'PlayerReplicationInfo'
    
    I do not know if this interferes with other functions of UAdminMod95b, for I had no other players around when I did this particular testing.

    The only issue I have found is that all the chat logged with UT2vote is "duplicated" so to speak. See my post in the zound thread for details on it. Otherwise, it works wonderfully!

    I have a special password protected server setup & running for UT2Vote testing.

    IP: 66.90.100.104:7777
    Pass: devtest
    All gametypes & mutators are votable.

    To login as admin:

    user: admin
    pass: devteam

    Feel free to check it out, especially the custom UAdmin messages which scroll at the bottom, hehe. I had fun making them, hope you enjoy reading them!

    I'll leave this server up for a few days.

    I have done no testing with the new AntiTCC betas, for it is still very buggy (I've been testing it on another server). Players loose weapons, views change, ect... I think it would be best to test it on a public release, not a beta.
