Spectator Stream Test

On Friday 16 Feb 19:00 to 00:00 CET a "auto-spectator" joins the LD+TOeu Public #1 server and streams it YouTube & Twitch.

One thing TO was lacking in was choice of crosshairs, this has been "fixed" by the new (832 KB) Pack with 350+ crosshairs.

Unlike many of the default ones these are all centre aligned cross-shaped crosshairs that have multiple sizes, gaps and dot options.

Check out the Preview Image with all crosshairs, or the Mini Tutorial on YouTube on how to install them.

ACE Update / 469D Kicks

The Filelist ACE uses to check which files are allowed has recently been updated and as result players with older 469d-RC2 installs get kicked from ACE servers.

If you are still using older 469d-RC versions its now a good time to update to the main release version.

22 January 2024
v469d Patch Release

21 November 2023
v436 TO3.5 INI Update

The 436 version of the TO:AoT Fixed Pack has been updated because it had a flaw in the TO3.5 User/DefUser.ini

At least since january 2023 the player name was set back to "Player" and not "NewPlayer" as it had been in the past, and TO3.5 servers block that name by default.

These are now the default players names for all fixed packs: Player_v436, Player_v469c and Player_v469d.
The v469c/d packs havent been updated as they already had different name than Player for TO3.5

11 November 2023
v469d-RC4 Patch

With the release of the UT v469d-RC4 patch by the OldUnreal team the TO:AoT Fixed Pack has been updated to have an RC4 version.

We reached the 2900 custom map count in the TO Archive after "Carnitarian" converted 5 more UT Maps: TO-* DM-[LUN]DUST2, INF-ACityBlock, INF-Belfast, INF-Ruin and INF-Stalingrad

Over 8 years ago it was seen as impossible to have that many maps working from one fileset without any errors or file mismatches. Extracting a map download always had the chance of breaking other maps or messing up your game/server files.

21 July 2023
INF Maps Converted

"Carnitarian" has recently converted 7 UT Infiltration maps: TO-DM-INF-* Arsenal, Atoll, Chasm, Kazakhstan, ResearchSite, Siberia and Sicily.

  • 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)

  • Added "TOSTUser.ini" to enable "showweaponinfo" and "showteaminfo" by default (Not all players aware of existence)

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.
