    So, what's up with Downtown Necris?

    Hey guys,
    I often talked about this topic to admins and they said they will try to manage it.
    However, this map is still missing on many servers.
    Of course I don't want to say it's the admins', Epic's or mappers' fault.
    I like this map and I'm disappointed that I can only barely play it.
    Epic Warfare #1, #2, Raptor server, Multiplay server - I cannot find this map anywhere.
    (Only a very few servers have this map so far.)

    What about re-releasing the map with the new UT3 patch which will hopefully come?
    Yes, Downtown Necris is available in Titan Pack, but there are some problems so I think putting it in a patch could solve this problem.
    The custom version of Downtown Necris (from BioHazard and cr4zy) was renamed too, so this should not be the problem anymore.

    As said:
    No offense against anyone, I just like this map and I would like to play it online.
    Maybe this problem can easily be solved?
    No idea...

    P.S. I'm not 100% sure, but I thought this map is available on the official US Epic Warfare server

    WE BROKE IT D:

    No seriously. We did.

    What happened, somehow. Honestly no idea how, but the official version isn't even installed on ANY Multiplay or Epic EU servers, because when installing it somehow got messed up with the custom versions, which i did tell Epic about, and then told Multiplay staff to uninstall our version before installing Titan, except, apparently that didn't happen. Now somehow the official one has vanished, and ours (the older version still exists)

    Sooo.. Erhmmm....

    The one way to do it would require uninstalling our version and then, either reinstalling the titan pack. Or just uploading the official version. I'll have to get it looked into properly sometime. Just not when im seriously packed up with college work.
    As i don't have access to the server files directly it has to go through staff members, so either ill get on and bug Neo about it, or teach one of the other newbs how to do it

    Ill try once this week is over, atleast by then ill have time to sit down and think it through

      I see.
      Okay, thank you.
      I have already written a PM to Flak and I have sent an e-mail via the "contact us" method.
      Maybe Epic can manage it at least to fix it for the Epic Warfare #1 and #2.

        I blame mapper who made second version and named it exacly like first one. Why not name it like WAR-Downtown_Necrified, WAR-Downtown_Necris(offical) or something different? WHY?

        Of course its possible (about 1% change) that mapper didnt know that there was already map with same name, because titan pack is bugged anyway and it wasnt tested correctly.

          Okay, let's see if anything will be changed.

          I sent a 2nd e-mail about the graphics problems.

          There is also a graphics problem.
          It seems every nvidia user has it.
          You cannot see the sky one some places properly.
          That are in game screenshots (how it looks):

          And here are some editor screenshots (how it should look!)

          I hope these things will be fixed as well.

            As I said to you in the PM Nightmare, no promises. There has been no word at all about a new patch.

              Well give your compadres a firm kick in the rump on our behalf! Look at that bug thread in his sig... Just look at it! If that's not worthy of a patch I don't know what is!

                  Maps are never included with patches. Patches are just for quick gameplay and map fixes. Not entire maps.

                    @Flak:
                    Hmm, I heard from a server admin (one of the well-known server admins) that Epic are working on a new patch.
                    Okay, I cannot confirm it...

                    And yes, B0T0X is 100% right.
                    There are way more bugs which are not in my list so far.
                    I could add around 12 bugs.
                    (I've already worked a bit on the thread, but not updated yet.)

                    @PeterS_01:
                    Everything maximum and activated in game.
                    1680x1050.
                    No AA, but 16x AF (automatically on if you turn on everything in UT3).
                    GeForce 8800 GTS 512 (Driver version: 182.06).

                    @BlueCloud:
                    Close, but not right.
                    DM-Morbias is in the latest UT3 patch, which also contains the other patches.
                    How else could Epic re-release the Downtown Necris?
                    New Titan Pack? No^^

                    Edit
                    I've checked it with the GeForce 185.85 drivers.
                    No chance so far!
                    And, it seems it's only an effect which cannot be rendered.
                    Look at these screenshots:
                    [shot]http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/7746/screenshot00616.jpg[/shot][shot]http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/9696/screenshot00617.jpg[/shot]
                    [shot]http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/4889/screenshot00618.jpg[/shot]
                    [shot]http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/7678/screenshot00619.jpg[/shot][shot]http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/1301/screenshot00620.jpg[/shot]

                    Once you pass this effect, you can properly see the sky.
                    I cannot say what kind of textures/effects those are.
                    (Something with light?)
