    isso sera um adeus ao TTM ???

    UnrealOps has a screenshot of UT2004's main menu and a Reader Q&A Session, where Epic answers various reader questions about UT2004.

    Prowler: Will all the skins be different shapes/sizes? If so, will someone make a TTM mod...which will require bright skins, and have all the models look EXACTLY the same?

    Answer: The team colors in CTF are much more balanced in 2004 than they were in '03. For example, the chest and leg armor are brightly colored so it is easy to distinguish between friend and foe.

    bom agora um outro trecho da entrevista:

    G1rl: Well besides the question about the release of the free/dedicated linux server version, I'm still confused about the LG/Sniper deal. It's not as important as the server, but this is my question:

    - the LG is going to be a "mod" in regular game play
    - the old Sniper will be available in o_nslaught (please explain the connection between vehicles and the sniper)
    - will there be a NEW weapon added to replace the LG in regular gameplay ?

    Also, back to servers for a sec, how do they plan o_n coordinating the upgrades to the 2k3 servers with the release of 2k4 ? Will it be simultaneous ? If 2k4 is released as an "upgrade" to 2k3 then I presume that the minute you install it, your version of 2k3 will be toast (meaning that you can't have working copies of 2k3 and 2k4 o_n your system). If that's the case will they be upgrading the 2k3 servers before the new release so that there will be places for 2k4 people to play o_n immediately?

    Answer: There will be a Linux version that will be ready when the game goes gold. As far as the LG/Sniper is concerned it will be specific to certain game types. However the server admin will be able to turn it o_n and off for CTF/DM and other types. Since they don't have the 'Sniping' ability o_ne doesn't really replace the other. So they both fit in pretty nicely. Meaning that in Assault Mode the Sniper Gun in used along with the new 'Gatlin Gun' turrets to give the map a 'Retro' feel to it. While the Lightning Gun fits in very well in the futuristic o_nslaught Mode.

    The LG and Sniper both have new features added to them. The new Sniper Rifle has a slower rate of fire and a nice new sound effect. To accent it's realism there is a puff of smoke that comes up and blocks your view for a millisecond after you shot. This is to make it so it is easier to spot snipers and blows out of the way if you move to a different spot after your shot. The new Lightning Gun doesn't have a 'staticy TV' zoom anymore. There is also take of giving the scope the ability to see in dark shadows (to counteract how much the lightning gives the shooter away).

    I was never a big fan of either weapon but I must say that they do indeed feel more 'balanced'. I really think Epic did a great thing with these weapons as both UT1 and UT2003 fans should be happy with the changes. As far as the server question goes, since 2k4 is backward compatible people won't have to wait for a bunch of new servers to play the game right away. They can join 2k3 servers that have the latest patch until there are new 2k4 servers o_nline. The 2k4 demo is going to be like its predecessors and have the ability to host demo matches.

    segunda parte:

    SkyFurnace: Will there be any changes to the editor, as far as features?

    Will the terrain editor be the same as it is for ut2k3, or what major changes will we see in the terrain editor?

    Will the ut2k4 o_nslaught maps have indoor and outdoor enviroments o_n the SAME map? Will there be DE and EPIC Bonus Packs for ut2k4?

    Will the new team colors carry over to DDOM / BR / CTF?

    Answer: The changes I can foresee in the editor would have to do with the new gametypes and vehicles. I did find out that they will finally be releasing the Unreal Editor book soon. The book is being written by Jason Buzzby (of Mastering Unreal fame).
    Not that I am aware of.

    Assault has o_ne map that is both indoors and outdoors (AS-Mothership).

    I know for sure Epic is planning a Bonus Pack for 2k4. Contest isn't set so hopefully we will see more o_nslaught features.

    Yes.

    Drew: Will there be any enhancements to spectating? Will there be any enhancements to demo playback?

    Answer: I was going to answer this o_ne myself but Dr. Sin was kind enough to talk about it more yesterday o_n the INA forums. Here is that conversation:



    Happy_Hamburger: I am going to be well impressed with Epic if you do release a demo manager with pause, rewind, fast forward etc

    Dr. Sin: Rewind really isn't possible in given how demos are recorded. I can allow you to jump backwards, but it's an big hack that looks bad. FF and Pause will be in there.

    Btw.. the option is called "Community" now and has more than just a demo manager and mod list. But I'm not spilling the beans yet.. sorry
    So as you can tell from this the picture of the intial menu has changed even since I saw it. All of the planned changes definitely help in the long run.

    Elian: The Sniper will replace the LG in o_nslaught right? What about the MineLayer, will that replace a gun?

    Answer: Actually the Sniper will be in Assault as I stated earlier. As for the MineLayer and other weapons that will 'Swap out' for others are the A.V.R.I.L and SpiderMine Gun. The weapons that they replace are similar i.e. Rocket for A.V.R.I.L, SpiderMine for Goo. o_nce again they did a nice job of keeping a balance.

    Funk-O-Potamous: I believe Mark Rein said that the translocator is going to be changed in an IRC chat a little while ago, can you tell us what the change is going to be?

    Do you have any idea of how much the rebate will be for 2k3 owners and what they will need to show proof of purchase.

    Will there be vehicles that can use more than o_ne person in o_nslaught? Such as o_ne person being the gunner in the tank and the other the driver?

    Will be able to parachute from aircraft in o_nslaught?

    Answer: The new Translocator in 2k4 is pretty kick ass. The first noticable feature is that it has an extra charge bringing the total number to 6. It also recharges at a faster rate. Held over from 2k3 is the 'heavy feel' and the fact it is thrown pretty far. Unless you are uselessly spamming the Xloc than you should run out of throws. o_nce again it seems to be balanced.

    There is talk from Atari that the game may ship at a retail price of o_nly $39.99. Add to that the mail-in rebate for UT2003 ovners of $10 and you have a possible cost of $29.99 for o_ne of most advanced games o_n the market. I think these things should put an end to the talk of the game being worth it or not.

    Several vehicles have the ability to carry passengers for them to fight. The new 'Hummer type' vehicle called the Hellbender, is setup for 3 people. o_ne driver, o_ne side passenger and o_ne gunner. The vehicle acts like the Warthog in Halo but looks and feel way cooler. The new tank has o_ne driver but several people can fit o_n the sides of it. What ever you do though do go in front as you will get squashed something fierce. I will have some actual gameplay footage of these vehicles up very soon!

    I am not able to answer this o_ne as the new Bomber aircraft was not far enough along for us to use it in live gameplay.

    Moose: Will they release a UT2004 Demo and give the community a couple of weeks to test it and report bugs/suggestions?

    What are the 'compatiblity' issues for 2k3 and 2k4 exactly?

    Will there be a free UT2004 Linux Server download like there was for UT1 and UT2003?

    Answer: The 2k4 Demo will be released well before the main game ships. I feel from talking to them they really didn't want to release 2k3 so soon after the demo but outside forces may have had a hand in that. They still remember all of the negative feedback they got last year.

    The compatibility is easy to figure out. If you have UT2004 you will be able to play o_n ANY 2k3 or 2k4 server. UT2003 players will o_nly be able to play o_n UT2003 servers. The o_nly requirement is that the 2k3 Server must be running the latest patch. What this means is that the next UT2003 patch will break Network Compatibility just like they did in UT1. To implement the new Network Code and Voice over IP they had to break free from the older code.

    Yes there will be a full free Linux server version availble. At this time they are trying to have a simultaneous lauch when the main game goes live.

    Gimpy: Is Epic ever going to go back to the 'regual low-lives now fighting in a bloody tournament' theme, or are they sticking with the sports theme with out of place characters like the Egyptians?

    Will there actually be good playable maps?

    Answer: I am very happy to be the first of ANY website to tell you the following info. Epic is getting back to its Unreal History roots. What does this mean? Well it means that each Assault map has a back story to it. All of the stories tie in to different parts of the Unreal Universe's past. Along these lines they are also expanding the future of some of your favorite characters like Malcom. Malcom's team is called 'Thunder Crash' and the picture that was released the other day of the new 70's style ladies is part of that team. Everyone's favorite robot Xan gets more exposure and a new woman in his life. However her name and picture will have to wait until another day for me to tell you about her.

    Playable maps, that seems to be a big question nowadays. I am happy to report that they are taking a completely different approach to making maps. Now they layout the maps and test game flow BEFORE they put in the eyecandy. This not o_nly ensures a great playing map but o_ne that is going to look kick ass as well. I got a chance to look at o_ne of the coolest CTF maps I have ever seen. It is called CTF-MoonDragon and was made but o_ne of our friends at Digital Extremes. The map theme is ancient Japan it not o_nly plays well but looks absolutly incredible.

    I don't think maps will be a problem in 2k4 like they were in 2k3. As a matter of fact some of the o_nslaught maps had to be scaled down in size! I look forward to seeing what maps the community can come up with as well.

    Dark Tyco: Are the lifts and map related items going to work properly? The Lifts in 2k3 didn't always work for me.

    Answer: From what I could tell the Lifts and new Jump Pads (ala UT1 style) were working very nicely in the build I played.
    I hope this answers a few of the naggy questions that people have been asking. I will have more pictures and videos of UT2004 coming out over the next 2 weeks. That should keep everyone busy until a demo sometime in September!

    Não Anubis, não será o Adeus ao TTM. Ele vai ficar ainda melhor na versão 3. Dificilmente algum jogo terá um mod original com todas caracteristicas necessárias para um torneio.

    Mas estas dúvidas/respostas foram muito boas pra saber algumas mudanças do ut2k4.
