My personal project of reviving AvP for the Atari Jaguar in Unreal Engine 4. It's at the point where I'd love to get feedback on any bugs or glitches.

If you have been wondering what I have been up to, aside from moving irl, I have been working on how to handle level loading and unloading in the multiplayer build. When the player uses the elevator, the appropriate sublevel will be loaded, when it does it will run all the spawners for that sublevel. So far I only have the spawners for sublevel 2 and 3 completed, but now that I have a system working that I'm happy with the others will be finished in the next day or two, so expect a build.

Each level will have a bounds actor volume placed around it so that when no player is present the level will be unloaded and any alien AI that has not been killed will fall outside the bounds of the level and be destroyed. When the level is then reloaded when a player chooses to return the spawner will get a list of all the aliens that have not been killed and place them where they originally were. I played around with doing this with a save file system but they continue to be the bane of my existence lol.

Hello everyone. Sorry for the dumb question, but does this need a copy of the UE4 Runtime to work, or is it standalone? How am I supposed to run it?

No it doesnt need UE4, it's a completely packaged build, all you need to play it is in the rar file, just launch the executable.

Put in some work trying things and tracking down my elevator woes. I think what's going on is sometimes it comes up empty with the teleport location. I'm thinking my best bet is to change it to work more like the vent system I just made because it seems to be way more reliable.

Multiplayer works over steam. It will show you as playing spacewar since there isn't an app ID. Haven't been able to get it to find game sessions outside of steam so be aware of that. Tested it as of 04/04/2022 and the client stutter seems to have been resolved. Let me know of anything you find, the list is long but I'll be plugging away at it.

Hey, I'm still the guy who tried to download this a hundred times, and it still gives me the file is corrupted, every single time I do. Any chance you could upload the archives to a different service, like mediafire or dropbox, and provide an alternative link? For the sake of trying. I'm just asking, don't worry if not, I still appreciate the effort. This game was magic, I just wish I could play it on Windows...

Mediafire doesnt let me upload because its too big or something and my DropBox is full with other stuff. That said I threw it up on a few other services that I just googled for free hosting. I don't know the sites personally so use them at your own risk, but here you go buddy.

Ufile.io

Filehosting.org

Thank you for your reply. The Filehosting upload is the same archive that for whatever reason my damn 7zip just won't open, while in the Ufile.io upload I can see 10 separate files, but with 2 different AvP.exe, is that normal?

The files I downloaded are:

Game.ini
Engine.ini
DeviceProfiles.ini
Compat.ini
UnrealCEFSubProcess.exe
Manifest_NonUFSFiles_Win64.txt
AvP.log
AvP-WindowsNoEditor.pak
AvP.exe (105,9 Mb)
AvP.exe (183 kb)

What do I need to do with those two exe?
Is that the complete content or are there some other files that I'm missing?
(cause it says the host has a 10 file limit)

Sorry again, you've been too kind.

Heres everything but the .pak file on Mediafire. Take the .pak file and put it in "AvP_Builds_2020_07_21\WindowsNoEditor\AvP\Content\Paks" and you should be good to go.

The 183kb one is the one you should use, as that's the one that's in the base directory usually, not sure what the other one is, it rests in the binaries/win64 folder, and I have no idea what the file service did with the file structure haha. It looks like the important bits are there, most of the games content is in the .pak file. However I don't know enough about the unreal engine back end to know if it will run without other things. Give it a try and let me know, if anything I could take out the .pak file you already have and upload to another free service without fear of file size because 90% of the size is from the pak file.
