Hey there! LloydGarcia (Jara) here. This article is for everyone around ModDB that thinks Urban Assault is dead. Well, it's stll pretty alive, probably even more than by the time i originally made this post (2014). While at first i thought the idea of making a new post was the best, i realized probably only a few people would ever see it, and the might see as well the old and wrong post originally made on 2014.
We're still pretty active, however the activity is more common on Discord, where we have 100+ users in! Tho don't think the forums are dead, because we still actively post there sometimes.
As a way to give everyone an idea on what happened and what's going on, we realized that MarioSDUX's fan made patch (on development after most of the community went pretty inactive) was completely mistaken and was based on more personal thoughts rather than collective ideas to revive UA. We strongly encourage to avoid downloading it. We'll remove all the download links ASAP.
Regarding singleplayer, one of our community members, Zidane (not actually the football player, but a UA player), is currently working on a Source version of UA that fixes bugs, increases max resolution and allows proper running of Urban Assault on modern OS (specially with the troublesome Windows 8/8.1/10), alongside other tweaks that increase game stability. This version has been already "Beta" released and it's being actively developed by it's creator. Be advised Multiplayer and some functions ARE STILL NOT FULLY IMPLEMENTED ON THIS VERSION, they're still on development. The final goal here is to rewrite UA' engine, making it portable and moddable on Zidane's own words. You can find more about this topic here.
As a fact, you can actually have your original UA copy and Source on the same folder. Source uses a different .exe so your original files and game won't get modified at all. This means you can ultimately run the game and play multiplayer with UA.exe if you desire. For more info about installing Source please join Discord and ask pcsx, MarioSDUX how to do it.
On the other hand, the current version used to play multiplayer UA is either Vanilla, or 1.05.09 patch (that added MD content to mp), which is currently outdated and uses the now obsolete helicopter patch (as Zidane managed to fix helicopters without this game changing patch). We're actively planning and soon developing a new patch 1.6 that should fix some balance issues, as well as removing entirely the obsolete heli patch, replacing it with Zidane's .exe fix entirely. We encourage only using Vanilla (and, in the least common cases 1.05.09) to play on GameRanger at the moment.
Before 1.6 gets released we may release a 1.05.10 patch to remove heli patch while keeping MD content. Once the final patch is released, we'll start developing 1.7 (which should finally fix all the unbalancing present in the game), whereas on the other hand MarioSDUX's will probably do its own with a fan made patch, but instead of placing his ideas, using all the feedback the community gives to him.
Here i'll leave a couple of videos about UA, more are on the channels shown above. Have a nice day!
