    Just a couple more things (not high-priority :))
    - Hitting 't' while you are in Uwindows does activate the 'say' order, so the console window can't be used properly.
    - Hitting ESC while you are in Uwindows does go back to the old UI aswell, I guess there's not much you can do if it affects the security thing...
    - Would be nicer if the msdos startup window did start minimized, or was not shown at all (if possible...) :D

    Yeah, I understand. I just always thought one of the biggest complaints about the current menus is the lack of options that can be configured within the game.

    I'd imagine it's purely for debugging/testing purposes.

    Hi there, been reading your threads for some time now and finaly decided to try to use UW2 but for some reason im only getting a black screen (pretty low res) and cant do anything but open the console..

    I did indeed extract the latest (17th) version to the UT3 install folder and i even changed the UTEngine "map" and "local map". Would be really nice to get this wonderful project working on my computer aswell.

    Good job and good luck with the contest.

    How quick is this from leaving an instant action match to another gametype? Load time figures.

    Are bots gonna be customizable?

    Ive also read that hitting the escape key to get you back into the menu takes you back into the atrocious original menu due to version/security conflicts and all. Can you make it work for instant action play where you can escape into your menu?

    I don't seem to be able to get this to work. I've extracted the files to the UT3 dir, changed the UTEngine.ini map= and localmap= to EnvyEntry.ut3 and run the bat file but I still see the original menu.

    Did you extract it to the "My Documents\My Games" directory or the place where the actual game is installed, which is where it is supposed to be?

    I extracted all the files to the UT3 install directory, and changed the UTEngine.ini which is in MY Documents.

    If it makes any difference I'm running Vista 64.

    You should not need to override or alter your config files.

    I thought you had to change:

    Map=EnvyEntry.ut3
    LocalMap=EnvyEntry.ut3

    Forgive me if this has been asked and answered before, but will your UWindows mod allow people to open up menus and the server browser while they're on a game server without leaving the server?

    Unlikely as uWindows2 shuts down when you connect to an online game.

    [SCREENSHOT]http://forums.beyondunreal.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=95874&stc=1&d=1213816581[/SCREENSHOT]

    Crunch time is pretty gruely, with about 14-16 hours work per day on uWindows2. Just a week to go, and I've still got a lot to do (as always).

    • Preferences window is complete. You are able to alter preferences to the same degree as the original UT3 menu system allowed you too. The 'Weapons' and 'Player' preferences are now stored in the 'Player Setup' and 'Weapons' window instead (which are not complete)
    • Panel scrolling is complete, you can use the buttons, the scroll thumb and the scroll space to scroll the panel. All components smoothly scroll within panels
    • Slight boost in window creation speed
    • Changed the background to Unreal Tournament's background
    • Added gradients to windows, drop down menus
    • Full theme localization to allow language support
    • Add vertical seperator to the bot match window, and switch the game type and map list to the left hand side
    • Started basic colorizing support. Colorizing allows users to customize the color scheme of the UI. This is supported within the themes, by adding a color tag to components. For example, all panels use the same color tag allowing me to color them all red. Windows, buttons, and any component can be done as well
    • Updated some of the windows graphics, and enabled transparency on appropriate images

    I extracted the latest build to UT3's main directory and when running the bat file the regular UI came up. What am I doing wrong?

    Hey Snake, what are the dimensions of that new background? I want to make a new one for myself. Or, I suppose the question is, what dimensions are required?
