"Run, jump and fly across massive boundless battlefields as you compete against fellow warriors" is the official catchcry from this game and it could not describe it better. Starsiege: Tribes puts the player in huge open environments wielding a fine arsonal of weapons - delivering end action packed fun. With such a fine-as original game concept the mods created really do stray from the typical First Person Shooter gameplay style and MUST be played, as they no doubt will prove brilliant!
A stock build of the original Tribes with updated scripts, master servers, and other quality of live improvements.
I thought with the 20 year tourney coming up there may be demand for a retro-styled 1.41 build.
it's really nothing special, just the Plasmatic stock build with fixes/tweaks/updates and wrapped in an installer. The installer automatically installs the Window 8/10 plugin-fix and the DPI fix.
-all console errors on startup fixed
-fullscreen fix (stock leak had windowed mode hardcoded in console.cs)
-refresh servers on startup fix
-current masters individually set in network. current is bugs_
-most maps including oc3
-modified remoteep (center/bottom prints at any resolution, old one used fixed res vars)
-flaggrab popup (storks)
-better netsetchange script (shows whether netset is really loaded)
-netsettings are old 1.11 default (saved in /config/core/netset.cs)
-clientside explosions off
-wider demos screen
-bigger 'host game' map selection menu
-added hit.ogg for servers that support hitsounds
-updated itemhud with a more obvious repkit icon and grenades dots(old one just showed a yellow dot for repkit and thats it?)
-installs start menu/desktop shortcuts, add/remove programs, uninstaller that wipes folder
-by default installs LT position tutorial demos
-installs win8/10 pluginfix
-installs the DPI fix
-first startup defaults to windowed mode. set your resolution and go to fullscreen on first startup!
i don't have much free time lately so this is mostly untested but i don't know what could go wrong. i kept meaning to get around to adding an option for better skies, if anyone wants to make up a pack of skies that would be great. any and all feedback is appreciated and if i have time i will make an updated version with whatever people like
as with all my configs, it's meant to be a base in which you add your own preferences to - no pre-made config is going to be perfect for everyone and the intention is that you customize it further to your liking
big thanks to Lyon, opsayo, stork and damaster for help with suggestions, scripts and testing
