Weapons Available In Custom Map Orticon Can't Be Used

UT now belongs to the "old" Unreal as well. Supporting it for OpenGL and Sound its time to put up a board now.

Weapons Available In Custom Map Orticon Can't Be Used

Post by Fred »

Hello,

In the custom map Orticon, that I have installed in UT99, and near where I spawn at the beginning, there are several crates containing weapons. When I acquire the weapons, they are not in my inventory, at least I can't find them for use. Where are the weapons? Any one have any idea why this is?

Orticon is a coop single player map, and can be found on the following site, about the 25th down from the top:

In my game, there are 3 weapons available in the crates, but only the first one acquired is available in my inventory for use. The other two are not available for use in my inventory, though picked up. They must be in there, though.

Is your Oldskool mod configured to replace any Unreal weapons/items with UT variants? That may throw a spanner in the works. Ortican is an original Unreal map and is intended to be played with the original Unreal weapons. Perhaps that might be the key.

ividyon,

I'll check whether my Orticon Oldskool is configured to replace any Unreal weapons/items with UT variants. Oh, how do I check that? I never pay attention to those type settings, not because I don't care, but because I don't know any better.

FYI, it's "Ortican", not "Orticon", this may help avoid confusion.

"OldSkool Amp'd" is the UT99 mod that lets you play Unreal single-player campaigns in UT99. The configuration for it can be found in your UT99 main menu under "Options -> OldSkool Configuration".

Under the "Single Player" tab, you can check what weapons are being converted. The checkboxes for all weapons should be off.

ividyon,

Yea, you nailed it. I didn't know about those settings, though I've looked at them before. I had no idea what they did. Now I know. Thanks much.
