  • New Game - Bounty Arms UDK Standalone Demo and Teaser Trailer now out

    Hi Everyone,

    We are officially releasing the Bounty Arms Alpha Demo to the public to play. Best played with an Xbox 360 controller.

    *Update: This is now the UDK standalone version which does not require UT3 anymore.

    Name: Bounty Arms
    Version: 0.36
    Compatibility: PC


    Bounty Arms is an old-school 3d side-scrolling action game that utilizes modern technology from the Unreal Engine 3.

    Over the course of the final game you gather power-ups that hugely alter your character and weapon arsenal, travel across the galaxy to many different worlds, unlock hidden doors to secrets, join with new comrades, fight the multitude of varying enemies that each world will bring, and defeat the bosses that rule them.

    Download Game:

          Well, I've installed the files to the proper directories, and I've got the correct patch level on my machine, and the Bounty Arms Demo option shows up in the UT menu. But when I select that and proceed through to start the game, I always end up coming back into the main menu again. Any suggestions? I would really like to see how this looks live. I'm really impressed by the videos - you're demonstrating another example of how old-style side scrollers can look relevant in this age of high-end 3D graphics.

              Cool, thanks for the good comments.

              mrkcr84 I really don't know what could be the problem. All I can think is double check the directory structure. Did you extract it to .../My Games/ or did you extract to your main UT3 directory?. And about the game patch do you have the black menus?. Does UT3 game types and levels work fine?.

              I've never had this kind of thing happen from my own testing or other people testing it. I really can't think of anything specific that would cause this directly related to the mod files. Unless possibly something could be corrupted if all stuff is in the right places.

              I can also suggest a clean try from scratch, possibly clean install UT3 + patch + extract mod files if all else fails.

              Sorry I can't give a direct solution.

                I extracted it to My Games folder as per instructions. And yes, all the UT3 game types and levels work fine too. I'll rip it all out and re-install the files. You never know, I may have goofed something up but it's not common for me because I'm pretty precise in these things. Still, user error often accounts for most problems in these cases. Thanks for the reply. I'll get back to you.

                  I hope you get it working.

                  I'm repeating myself now but, I have no idea what to suggest. I don't have that much experience with UT3 mods to have any real suggestions what could go wrong. Don't know if other things can interfere since our mod is not separate in it's own dir structure, it is part of UT3 structure and I don't know if you had other custom stuff in there as well if anything could interfere possibly in one way or another.

                    when i tried loading the map, it keeps on loading for over 5 minutes [which isnt normal for me...]
                    any clue what could be the problem?
                    btw: how many opponents should i choose?


                    • #11
                      Does it load in the end?. If it does and you replay, does it load quick?.

                      Usually for me a really slow loading is because of the shader cache files. If they're not there, like on new install or something, it gets created at load time and can take a while. Once that is done, it's quick. In this case, only the SM3 shader cache is included with the download which is the only one that gets generated when I ran it. It's possible another file is generated. I'm not really sure.

                      That's considering that the level does load in the end. If it does not. I'm sorry I have no idea.

                        The Combatants you put 1, Score 0 and Time 0.

                          I pulled out the files and reinstalled and everything runs fine now. I'm sure it was just user error during the install somehow. I've not got time to toy with it much at the moment (what I saw looked great, though), but I'll check it out again more tomorrow. Thanks for your help!

                            Hi mrkcr84,

                            Glad you got it working. Hope you enjoy playing it tomorrow.

                              Great concept and the delivery is incredible. To bad didn't get released a little sooner could of been a top 5 mod. Maybe top 2. The auto aim works great. The platform form elements are great. Definitely hoping for more from this mod, like more of the gears platform section (with more foreground and background interaction). The precision jumping is a little difficult especially the lava streams section, which took me about 20 tries. This would be great on the PS3. Give me a shout if you guys need some help in that area. Try to do separate levels from each other with out using sublevels. U can always use kismet to link when you end a level to another level like they do in theball. Do a battle royal level. Where there are dozens of those flying robots and switches that activate things that drop health or bombs.
