  • fixed SDLGLDrv for Linux. Although maybe a bad idea to use it for playing (it lacks many features and is really not very

far advanced), it may be useful for debugging or for some low-end systems. To use it, you need to start it with "./UnrealLinux.bin -noforcesdldrv"

  • Enhanced the UWindow EditBox to make it possible to select text with mouse and Copy/Paste text in it.
  • Added a Music Player Menu (now default key to open it on F8), which lets you listen to custom musics while playing. Be

  • Added IP/Name/ID playerlogger for Servers and messaging it for server admins/server log which will stored in

Security.ini too if GameInfo bMessageAdminsAliases/bLogNewPlayerAliases are true. Like the banning system, this feature is only available for 227 clients.

  • Added Web-Administration support

A WebServer administration page. Features: -Restart map - Restart currently playing map. -Switch map - Switch map to selected map/game/mutators (note that maplists configure must be enabled to access maplist). -Current game - You see list of players (ID/Name/Ping/Score/IP) and controls to Kick/Ban them. -Server console - See a list of chat messages in server aswell a command line where you can chat with the players to execute a command on server. -Banlist - See a full list of all banned clients, also lets you unban them. -Defaults - Server configure page:
