Ingame News Tab Fixed

Thanks to patches released by "LuckyDog" for TO2.2, TO3.4 and TO3.5 the ingame News Tab works again.

Its recommended to install them so it's easy to stay up to date with the latest TO news from ingame.

The files are multiplayer compatible, no problems when joining servers. They have already been applied to the Fixed Pack.

TO Fixed Pack Updated

The "TO:AoT Fixed Pack" is renamed to the "TO Fixed Pack" and now also includes a full TO2.2 install.

The plan is to update the TO Quick Join so it also supports it, for now only the ingame server list can be used.

This TO2.2 version only shows "TO220" servers and not "s_SWATGame", the server files will be released later.

The ingame News tab is fixed and displayed custom news text in 2.2, 3.4 and 3.5.

Epic Games Masterserver

Updated various TO files since the epicgames master server goes offline end of january 2023.

It's not a real problem for TO as all existing TO Archive packs already used 3 master servers.

Changes to TO3.4+3.5 Fixed Packs
• Updated the epicgames masterserver to OldUnreal masterserver
• Set gfx renderer settings identical between v469 and legacy pack
• Set the "showweaponinfo" and "showteaminfo" HUD to style 1 by default for TO3.4.1 server
• Added the settings/serversounds mute menu from v469 pack to legacy pack

Changes to Editor Packs (all-in-one editor+addons+tools)
• Updated the epicgames masterserver to OldUnreal masterserver
• Set gfx renderer settings identical between v469 and legacy pack
• Set the default frameratelimit to 100 on v469c pack

Changes to Server Patch (Still a Work in Progres...)
• Updated the Epicgames masterserver to OldUnreal masterserver

Changes to TO:C v1.97 Pack
• Updated the Epicgames masterserver to openspy.net

Now the used master servers are 333Networks, Qtracker and OldUnreal for TO, and Openspy for TOC.

The Quick Join might also be slow after 25 Jan as it will timeout on 3rd master server...


2 January 2023
Redirect Moved + Updated Server Patch

The Public Redirect has moved to a new host, big thanks to "L4UR3NS" for hosting it from February to December 2022.

The Server Patch has been updated allot recently. The TO3.5 TickRate is fixed, MapVoteUL config is fixed and the TO3.5 server config is set to use the correct redirect url.

TO2.5 AoT Preview Version

TO2.5 is an unfinished, unofficial modded version of TO2.2 to run as a standalone game. Many small changes and updates have been made to both the gameplay and the menu interfaces.

It should be compatible with all TO3+ maps in the File Archive. It has no server browser so joining a server is only possible from the console with ip.

This TO version has download and install instructions on its own page in the "Other" section of the File Archive.


21 December 2022
TO Fixed Pack

The settings menu has been updated again. There is a bug when toggling Default Textures while AA is on in v469c, so the AA settings have been removed again. Better to force MSAA from your gpu driver settings.


21 December 2022
TO:C Pack

The TO:C Pack is an unofficial standalone version of TO:Crossfire that runs from "stripped down" base game folder.

It also includes the recently released v1.97 patch that fixes the unclosable update notifcation on startup.

Fixed Pack Updated

The "Custom Server Sounds" menu has been replaced by the "Advanced Settings Menu", from this Mod Menu you can edit video settings, mute server sounds and modify TOST settings.

Update 3: Added the AA settings back into the menu...

Fixed Pack Update

The custom files previously added to the v469c Fixed Pack have been removed and are now downloadable as update zip.

Updated the TO:AoT Fixed Pack

Some small changes applied to both the normal Fixed Pack and the v469a Test Pack:

  • Changed default name from "Player" to "NewPlayer" (Prevent kick on TO3.5 servers)
  • Updated the OpenGL on TO3.5 from the original in TO3.5 patch to "OpenGL Renderer v3.5" (TO3.4 used it, now TO3.5 too since no more servers with TOST v4.3 online)
  • Disabled the "Show Widescreen" setting that applied useless black bars to top and bottom of screen when dead or spectating
  • Added "TOSTUser.ini" to enable "showweaponinfo" and "showteaminfo" by default (Not all players aware of existence)
  • Added "MapVoteULv2_4_Client.ini" to give the mapvote used by some servers a more blue TO theme by default

Currently the audio renderers are buggy on v469a but the plus side is the Raw Input mouse setting and 200+ fps on ACE v1.2e servers.
