No, Urban Terror is not going retail, but we ARE releasing Urban Terror 4.1 on Saturday, December 22nd.

This release will feature stuff like:

* Working IP ban system

* Duplicate name protection (the trade of is that you can't use spaces in your name anymore though)

* Removal of white skins

* New/updated maps

* Updated UI and default settings

* /rcon players command, returning map/score and per player: name, team, score, ping, IP


Bug fixes, like:

* Fixed hit bug when crouching and moving

* Several spawn locations fixed

* Negev reload exploit fixed

* Power slide physics exploit fixed

* TDM scoreboard not updating fixed

* in-game browser now remembers your sorting preferences


And some tweaks to weapon balance:

* sr8 unzooms when getting hit with significant damage

* spas does less damage and knockback when getting hit by it is lower

* ump does more damage

* psg back to 8 bullets and chest hits bleed out


This will be a big download. There will only be full installers, no update packages. It should be installed to a new/empty directory. You can copy over your old config file afterwards.

Together with the changes to ioUrbanTerror posted earlier, we hope this will become the best and most solid version to date. Discuss it here.

The exact release time is not yet known. But count on somewhere around 19.00 - 24.00 CET (GMT+1). That's somewhere around 10.00 - 15.00 PST or 13.00 - 18.00 EST.


We wish you happy holidays and a great new year!
Greetings,
The Frozen Sand Development Team


PS: Tnx Wolfseye, for the great Urban Terror box art!

Heh, I've been playing it since 2000 and pretty much still do on a daily basis. (While ETQW, HL2: Orange Box, BF Series, CoD4 sit idle on my shelf) I guess the ease of how the game plays keeps me playing it. It's pretty easy to find a server, load the game, select your team, weapons (there's no buying weapons, no weapon unlocks... what you see is what you get) and yer off. Since it's based off of the q3 engine, the load time is quit a bit quicker than the newer games. I've seen some compare this game to counter-strike but urbanterror plays quite a bit faster.

EP: Yeah, it's been standalone since the previous version 4.0 which was released last April.

PS. If you goto http://www.complex-microcosm.com and check out the right side of the page, there's decent pictures of the weapons, maps etc...

I still occasionally play Enemy Territory (not the QW version).

Haven't played this yet.

has some realistic features, but a really arcade core... and great graphics for its time


i've been waiting a new realease to get back to it, since 4.0 maps sucked bad :p glad to hear its coming soon


ps. its standalone now, but if anyone owns q3, get the mod version., which has pb support

The wall jumping and power sliding that they've added in previous versions add to it quite nicely :)

Sadly, PB's pretty much nerfed support for Q3. However it's a good system for server admins to use since admins can add custom cvars, .dlls, etc to scan for along with their guid system. It's just rarely used since the majority of server admins chose to go with the io version to allow the influx of stand alone users to play.

4.1 is available for download!

Please uninstall Urban Terror 4.0 and ioUrbanTerror 1.0 before installing 4.1. Back up your configs/demos/screenshots though. You can copy those back to 4.1 after it's installed, or you can start out fresh if you want. There's only FULL packages, no upgrades.

The .exe installer for windows users (if you use Vista, you might want to install to somewhere else than 'Program Files'):

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
