BatThwap Mutator v 1.0
- by Adam Stiles (Muad'dib)
BatThwap is a small mutator that I coded out of fun and out of
wanting to learn UnrealScript. What BatThwap basically does is
randomly (depending on your current weapon) pops up little "Pow!",
"Thwap!", etc signs around a player that you happen to hit with
your weapon. This is done in classic 60's Batman (tm) televsion
series style thus the name of the mutator. It also has the side
effect of often giving you a visual cue as to if you've hit your
target or not!
Unreal Tournament (duh). BatThwap has been tested using UT v4.00,
v4.13, as well as the demo version running under Linux and works
on all of those configs. I'm *assuming* that it will work correctly
under any version of UT currently available.
If you downloaded the UMOD version and are reading this, then odds
are that you've already double clicked the UMOD and have it ready
If you downloaded the manual install version of BatThwap, then all
you need to do is unzip the contents of the zip package to your
UnrealTournament\System directory. You'll also need to add the
to the [Engine.GameEngine] section of your UnrealTournament.ini
HOW TO USE
After installing, use as you would a typical mutator. Load up
UT, start a game, and select BatThwap from the mutator listings.
Note that BatThwap generates the popup signs in-game based on
what weapon you're using. Each weapon has it's own likelyhood
of generating a sign with each successful victim hit.
v1.1 - Texture directory structure problem fixed (me hopes) that
was causing the mutator to not spawn captions.
v1.0 - First release
- Epic Megagames for Unreal and Unreal Tournament!
- Tim Sweeny for providing a game engine that's so darned
logical and well set up.
- Chimeric (http://www.planetunreal.com/chimeric
) for some
great coding examples.
- Digital Extremes and their mutator package - being able to
look at their "Team Beacon" code helped to clear up a lot
of trouble I had.
- Ob1-Kenobi for the umod Wizard.
- My bud Sarlock for the idea for this mutator

or get past a hurdle in your own programming experiences is cool
though. If my code helps you somehow, please gimme a tag line
