    Works great, I really like the sound effect when you score. The music is also very techno cool.

    Good to see UOF mappack out for PS3 by the way. I never did see it was released. My bad.

    Excellent! Glad to hear it works & big thanks! - <you are the man ..> I intend to finally break down and buy a PS/3 for xmas, UT3 will be one of the first games i purchase for it.

    Also could you possibly tell me how it cooks down from an 80MB file for PC, to almost 1/2 that (38.66 MB) for the PS/3? <what gets dropped out? - if anything> or is it just better compression / less intensive light mapping, etc.?

    Incidentally; those who are left in this community are very fortunate that you can cook these maps for PS/3 with functional custom audio. - glad there is one elite dude like yourself who has figured out how to reliably implement it.


    @FreakinMeany, basically as i explained above to Bl!tz;
    as i was preparing the version for the PS/3 cook & the BR conversion i arrived with a more polished version of 1.4
    I intend to upload that and update this thread with the 1.4 version soon .. The reason the name is 2K10 now is because it was updated this year, 2K9 was version 1.0-1.2 & released in 2009 - 2K10 is 1.3 - 1.4 & released in 2010 - does that make sense? <perhaps you should mirror this PS/3 version though so we have at least 1 fallback mirror?>

    The main things with 1.4 besides some slight visual adjustments / enhancements are mainly performance optimizations and collision adjustments, after a few ppl complained about frame drops I realized that the map needed better optimization. I scrapped the UT3 teleporters (the noisy ones) with the preview and built my own that look very similar, (8 of those suckers can really slow down a map) i did all the culling that should have been done on 1.3 an over sight, but since the map originally was mesh lite (& lower poly) the optimization requirements were far less crucial, (i hadn't given this enough thought) as i said after ppl complained about performance i realized now being mesh heavy the map would greatly benefit from culling and various other optimizations, i would normally do on a map from scratch, etc.

    Below is the changelog for 1.4. & a couple of screens <might be the last update ever .. -or maybe at least until next Football season>

    * Version 1.4: Major Performance Optimizations, Minor Blocking/Collision Adjustments & Implementations, Various Minor Tweaks (Lighting, Materials, & Visual) - Final prep for PS/3 Cook (euchreplayer23) & BR Conversion (HO0815XX)

      Ah! It all makes sense now Thanks 1XTreme. Can't wait for the PC update.

      Comment


        The file that I cooked the PS3 from was actually 253mb (uncooked). Down to 38mb on the PS3. I didn't edit anything in the map the cooker just coverts everything down. The maps play and look exactly the same. Nothing noticable diff(?)
        The sound tools are available still for the PS3 just not from the official download anymore. I had saved a copy luckily for me and the other PS3ers.

        Is there a download for a working BR version of this map, it was mentioned above. If so I can cooked for the PS3 for u as well. Anybody that needs or wants a cook for the PS3 just ask me.....Peace

          As mentioned while preparing the map for the BR version & PS/3 cook i was able to polish the map quite a bit, this one should perform better, i'd appreciate hearing back from a few of you who said you had some slow downs on the map when you get a chance .. <THX DUDES>

          Again here is the changelog for 1.4

          Code:
            * Version 1.4: Major Performance Optimizations, Medium 
          Blocking/Collision Adjustments & Implementations, Various 
          Minor Tweaks (Lighting, Materials, & Visual) - Final prep 
          for PS/3 Cook (euchreplayer23) & BR Conversion (HO0815XX) 
          http://download732.mediafire.com/994...ootball+1.4.7z

          <thx again Euchreplayer> yeah thats amazing how it cooks down to less than 40 MB for the PS/3 yet the PC cooked version is 80+ MB, has to be texture compression.

          Here is also a list of additional credits ..

          Credits:
          # HO0815XX, Gussie, Stevelois, Achernar, Zergling, Thrallala, T-NiTro, TIPPER, Foufoune_Rose, Bl!tz, testing / feedback on versions 1.3

          & finally ..
          Special thx to T-NiTro for running around the map for a good while and finding a severe color burn, before this final build / upload <good eye!>

            BR-Version

            Hi 1XTreme!

            Here is the BR-version of your awesome map: http://www.filefront.com/17304469/BR-Football_2K10.rar/
            I hope you like it.

            Comment


              Excellent!

              Thank you very much! I absolutely dig it .. (hopefully there are still other BR fans out there who may want another BR map to play) it not we'll certainly enjoy it ourselves either way.

              THX again for taking time to do this HOXX! - ya rock.

              I'll ad the link to the first thread, & hopefully someone will mirror it, with my slow connection its very difficult to upload larger files or i would.

              P.S. <i actually recommend 7zip if you want to save a little bandwidth it has significantly better compression than .rar & its free ..>

                Extraordinary map mate! Highly detailed and beautiful. I just downloaded. I'll look forward to more of your future releases.

                  FYI - The Mapraider mirrors have been updated. All old links (for any version) automatically redirect to the latest revision, now 1.4. A handful of members who had downloaded the old version were automatically notified of the update.

                  Working on getting the BR version mirrored for you as well.

                  Edit:

                  Bombing Run version is available on our three mirrors here:

                      Great! T.Y. glad to have another reliable mirror, Hoxx signature says filefront deleted his stuff again .. <both demotivating & disgusting ...> I'll keep an eye out for the BR mirror.

                        Here I did the PS3 version of this map for BombingRun. The below file has the gametype attached to it already, so no other download is required. Works by itself and/or with other existing BR stuff for the PS3.

                          Yes, this is a good idea.

                              Nice update 1XTreme!

                              Just started playing BR after reading Stevelois's thread and so far your map is the best by far I've seen. I'd even say its a prefect fit for this mode.

                              PS been meaning to test out the V-sync option but have been side tracked, sorry.
                              From my first run through I didn't notice any frame drops [stuttering graphics]. Well done and thanks for your work!

                                Nice job on the UT3 conversion.
                                Thanks for the credit as well. Appreciated.
