    Utility (PC) USucc [Beta]

    Name: USucc
    Version: Beta 0.09.10.08
    Download: USucc-v-0.09.10.08.zip
    Homepage: http://ut3gow.com/USucc

    Description:

    USucc is a tool for sharing UT3 content. The name "USucc" stands for "User Shared user created content". It is pronounced "You Suck" and it is my response to people who complain that downloading custom maps takes too long. With USucc, you can be sure that all the maps on your favorite servers are downloaded before you start playing.


    USucc is a Windows application that downloads maps and other user created content. It communicates with UT3 game servers that run Bakwey, a mod that provides information about the maps hosted on the server. After USucc communicates with a game server, it uses BitTorrent, a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol, to download the content.



    Feature Overview:

    • Download maps, mods, etc using BitTorrent file sharing protocol.
    • Keep track of available content on UT3 servers running Bakwey.
    • Download content from redirect servers (when allowed by its server admin).
    • Install and uninstall complete map packages including node layout configuration files.
    • Automatically pause file sharing while you play UT3.
    • Control bandwidth usage for downloading and uploading.
    • Easily remove content you don't want.
    • Easily create torrents for sharing new UT3 maps.
    • Free and open source software.



    Download:

    Current Beta Release: USucc-v-0.09.10.08.zip



    Installation:

    You can extract the zip archive to your desktop, documents folder, or wherever you want. There is no installer. Just run the application itself. It is called USucc.exe. USucc should work on XP, Vista, and Win7.



    Quick Start:

    When you first launch USucc, the main window will appear quite bare:





    If you are running firewall software, it should warn you that USucc is attempting to listen for incoming connections. You'll need to unblock and allow it if you want USucc to work properly.


    Next you select a game server to contact. USucc automatically populates the server list with your UT3 favorites. You can also type the IP address of a server in the server address box. However, for USucc to communicate with a server, it must be running Bakwey. If you don't know of any Bakwey servers, you can always try it out using the GodsOfWarfare server: 216.86.149.231





    Once a server is contacted, USucc will show the maps hosted on the server and begin downloading the ones you don't have. If you already have a map installed, USucc will begin sharing it with others.





    Download speed depends on the number and generosity of the peers you're connected to. Most peers will not share with you unless you share with them. If you don't see any peers right away, don't give up too soon. It may take a while to contact them and the more peers you contact, the more you may find. If there are no peers, some servers will allow you to download from their redirect server but USucc will not begin using these special web seeds right away.


    Once the files have downloaded, you can select the item in the list and click the Install button to move its files from the USucc download directory to your UTGame directory where they'll be ready to use in the game. You can also use the Uninstall button to move files back to the USucc download directory if you wish to continue sharing them but not use them in the game.


    If any files in a torrent differ from ones you already have installed, USucc will download all the files in the torrent. This is common for maps you installed using a cache converter. Once downloaded, you can choose whether to install over the ones you already have.


    To stop sharing content, select an item in the list and click the stop button. To delete content, select an item and click either the Kick or Ban button. The Kick button deletes the content but will allow USucc to download newer versions later. The ban button deletes the content and prevents USucc from downloading newer versions.


    USucc will stop sharing content when you're playing UT3. This ensures that your bandwidth is fully dedicated to the game.


    Security:

    If you have a router with a UPnP configurable firewall, Bakwey will enable port forwarding so that peers can connect to you. If you are not comfortable with that, you can disable UPnp port forwarding in the settings dialog. USucc does not treat any data that it downloads as executable code (although UT3 does execute mods within its walled garden... that's fairly safe... we hope). I have made efforts to make USucc secure. It should never modify files outside of a few specific UT3 user directories and, within those directories, it should not overwrite standard game files. Still, use good judgment when you decide to run USucc, contact certain servers, or install content that it downloads. Keep backups of important data on your computer at all times and don't risk things you're not willing to lose.



    License and Credits:

    USucc is licensed under the MIT free software license. The full text is included in the download archive. Despite being a more of a BSD guy, I decided to adopt the MIT license used by MonoTorrent and Mono.Nat, two terrific open source projects that provide most of the heavy lifting for USucc.

    LOL

    Dude, you can be surprised how many folks are playing offline as I do since UT99. In fact, I know more folks that play offline than online. But it doesn't matter anyway, really nice job Pacer

    Fantastic idea pacerx. I hope someone running an aussie server sees this. There is a lack of any servers running custom content here atm. (read this as FragTastic is playing offline mainly )

    Hopefully it gets the community more interested in custom content too. Seems to be a lot of mappers dissapearing lately, mainly due to community apathy towards their efforts.

    Thanks for the kind words Roy! Same goes to everyone else who has posted here and elsewhere. I think USER SHARED user created content is important when you notice how many download links on this forum are now dead because FileFront is... well... fronting. USucc is a tool for building the community around this game. We now know that it is up to us to give this game life for the next few years. I think there is still life in UT3 but stock content is just the seed. Okay, 'nuf preaching.

    Yes, USucc allows you to create new torrents. I expect server admins or, better yet, map creators will create the torrents. Once created, torrents can be uploaded to your web site from the USucc folder which sits along side the UTGame folder in ~/Documents/My Games/Unreal Tournament 3/. GodsOfWarfare hosts our torrents in the same place that we host our maps for redirect. You can choose to host torrents whereever you want. Also remember that redirect seeding is optional and it won't work if you use uz3 compression but that's okay because the content can be shared among peers just as well. If we get enough peers, we'll have no problem filling people's pipe with data and, even if not, you don't need to fill you pipe when downloading occurs while you're asleep or at work... it'll be there the next day.

    When you create torrents, try to have a "clean install" of the content from the map author and include the LOC and Config/ini files. If you create one from a map you've extracted from your cache, do not include the .ini file that UT3 auto-generates in the CustomMaps directory. Otherwise the the data in the torrent will conflict with what others might have in their CustomMaps dir.

    I posted a new version with some important bug fixes and optimizations for connecting to servers that have hundreds of custom maps.

    Garrysmod.org, the map/mod download site for the Source game engine, has switched to BitTorrent for content distribution. Despite a bunch of misguided initial push-back, I think it will work well for them.

    grabbed 08-31 version. Funny thing that's not very important: when I click the "About" button, it closes USucc and opens an empty browser page. I was more expecting a little text box with information like author, version number, URL for more info...you know, the usual. No biggee. just in case others have this issue.

    Default Hi, I cannot get Usucc to work

    Hi There,
    Thank You for such a wonderful UT 3 utility, Pacerx. Because I love the presence of custom maps in any game, as I feel they keep a game fresh over many years, being able to escape having to waiting for 10+ minutes just to download one custom UT 3 when wanting to play, THEN having to do the same after THAT map is done - - - is just golden. And considering that most custom UT 3 DM maps I have played are elite an visually attractive, and I want in!!!

    This is why I am seeking Anyone's or Everyone's help on getting the Usucc program to work, because this is what happens when I try to run either USucc-v-0.09.08.12 or USucc-v-0.09.08.31:


    ( http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2560/...1c08b6ce_o.jpg ).

    Any and all help will be very meaningful towards helping me get into this WONDERFUL game, Unreal Tournament 3; enabling Me to download loads of custom UT 4 maps with the quickness; and getting Me into this community that seems to stubbornly face whatever obstacles UT 3 online gaming as a whole, has faced throughout the years!!!

    Thank you for all of you help, have a great day everyone!!!

    lend82,

    I can not tell exactly what's wrong based on your screenshot. I will release a new version of USucc soon which will hopefully help. The new version writes errors to a log file which may tell me more about what is causing the error on your machine.

    I released a new beta version of USucc. Besides numerous bug fixes, this version adds a Torrent details panel which shows a variety of information about the selected torrent.


    Download link is in the first post. Enjoy!


    Also, I'd like to thank Poker for helping make nearly 250 maps available through USucc! Connect to the A.S.S Deathmatch and Greed/CTF servers if you want the motherload!

    Crap, it failed to initialize. My system is XP_64, does that matter or did I forget something?

    Well, at least I remembered to download and install it.

    You need .net framework v.2 or better... You can use windows update to get it... assuming you don't mind using windows update ;-)

    What did it say when it failed?

    My system was as it was when I installed it, XP_64 SP2 so I turned on update, only 48 packages to install. It took a while. That made no difference though, same error window.

    The little box said,"The application failed to initialize properly (0X0000135)
    Click OK to terminate the application"

    According to almighty Google, that error occurs when you don't have the .net framework installed. I thought .net was standard with XP but maybe not v.2. It may be in the optional section of Windows Update.

    The latest version, v.3.5 is available here.

    The minimum requirement is .net v.2: x86 -- x64

    OK, I installed .NET. Then had to update again. After a couple reboots and retrys, it always gives the same error and sends a report to bill gates..

    The joy of XP_64, lol
