    Force Default Character

    I have searched and tried everything that search elicited (here for example: http://www.ina-community.com/forums/...ault+character).

    Nothing seems to work. Was something changed in a patch to not allow this?

    I play a server that runs those infernal invisible Necris skins. I want to see (insert anything but Necris) instead. What do I need to do to FORCE enemy characters to be something else?

    TIA

    UT2004.ini
    [UnrealGame.DeathMatch]
    bForceDefaultCharacter=True

    User.ini
    [XGame.xPawn]
    PlacedCharacterName=Gorge
    PlacedFemaleCharacterName=Rylisa

    And you have to play as one of the models you force.

    IIRC you can force:
    Males: gorge, xan, malcolm, jakob, brock
    fems: rylisa, and some other dumb chix who are invisible.

        How are they invisible? Are you talking about the ones I did? Do they need brightened up in some way?

        I put them up for beta testing in the maps and mods forums and no one complained you couldn't see them. If they are too hard to see I'll be glad to edit them further.

          Forcing Model never worked for me. I tried everything and it didnt ever worked. I dont care much, but ... why it just doesnt work with me? I dunno.

            You have to use the character you force, so if your model isn't that character, opponents won't be forced.

              why would you want to make everybody jakob? a character arena mode would be better.

                It's a different server Flak. I don't know if it's the same skin pack that you use or not.

                There is one character in particular that is very dark and that I cannot see on some maps (Grendelkeep and any space map).

                But, I've also hated the black robot skin since the game was released.

                This will be something I can do client-side to hopefully make it a little less frustrating.

                  This is what I've done without success:

                  Open user.ini and ut2004.ini both found in the SYSTEM Folder of your UT2004 folder.

                  Make the following changes to User.ini:

                  [UnrealGame.UnrealPawn]
                  PlacedCharacterName=Gorge
                  [XGame.xPawn]
                  PlacedCharacterName=Gorge
                  PlacedFemaleCharacterName=Rylisa

                  *IF these sections dont exist just copy paste all of the above.

                  Make the following changes to UT2004.ini:

                  [UnrealGame.DeathMatch]
                  bForceDefaultCharacter=True
                  bColoredDMSkins=True

                  Add this section in the UT2004.ini :

                  [UnrealGame.DMMutator]
                  bBrightSkins=True

                  And change these settings to true...

                  [UnrealGame.DeathMatch]
                  bAllowPlayerLights=True


                  I don't know if something has been done in a patch or maybe something server side that doesn't allow this. I have't heard of the former and I don't think the latter is possible

                      Did you select Gorge as your player model?

                        I've tried Gorge and Jakob.

                        [EDIT]

                        Do you mean the character I play? My skin in other words?

                        If so, I have not changed my own character or skin.

                          Yeah, you have to play as the model you force. So go into settings, character and change that to gorge or whatever as well.

                            Cool, I will give that a try.

                            Can I use the female skin (i.e. can I force Lauren, my default skin)?

                              Works, you don't have to change your char, but you do take the form of the defualt char. Whether this is server-side aswell, I dunno.
