I love coming back to this site every year or 2 and seeing that it's still here. Like a little nostalgia timecapsule

Basically, the progressive march of updates to HTML slowly killed it, made it incompatible to run. We technically still have it archived, but it's not really possible to browse it.

So what happened to the old site?

rion888888888888 - 02/08/2020 - 00:48

Oh NAB, I don't think I have been active in the NAB community since like 2008

Rajada - 02/07/2020 - 22:51

Indeed it does

RTSplayer - 02/07/2020 - 18:03

Oh hey this website still exists.

20 years of NAB!

Ok, thanks.

Rajada - 09/02/2019 - 19:07

I recommend the first option, as it patches multiplayer and everything.

Either install the Community Pack, light or full, or do it manually with the NerfEd OCX library files.

Rajada, you don't still have the old LevelUp mutator from old forums, do you? I put code for it there a while back, but no one did anything with it for some reason.

Also, how do you add mutator to multiplayer mutator list?

Discovered the UT99 Assault maps...so THAT'S why there's a bunch of weird movers that don't do anything in some NAB levels. o.O

Which old forums? The archived forums here are available via the archive tab. The old site's forums however, I'll have to dig it up for you.

Do you mean how do you get a new mutator to show up in the mutator tab list? To do that, you need an .int file with the same file name as the system pack with the mutator in it. The same applies to map descriptors and new gameinfos. You can find many examples of this in the current version of NAB, but here's a breakdown for mutators anyway:

[Public]
Object=(Name=EasyPoints.EasyPointsMutator,Class=Class,MetaClass=Engine.Mutator,Description="Easy Points: Description goes here.")

[Public] is just a generic header to tell the search system where to look for mutator or map or game info. You only need one of these.

Object is the exact package.class style name for the mutator.

Class=Class is just more technical stuff, you don't need to change this, and shouldn't.

MetaClass however, tells the engine what kind of item this line of the file describes. So while loading mutators, it will look only for mutator metaclasses, and will skip over things like map descriptors or gameinfos. Clearly, there are different metaclass requirements for each kind of resource.

Description is a generic text block. It is differently based on the menu it is used in. For maps and mutators, it literally is the description. Gameinfos don't use it however. Be sure to enclose it in double quotes or it won't work!

If you want to add another mutator or even a gametype, just add the new line below any others. There's no ordering requirements.

There's an archive tab? o_o


Well, I am rewrite it anyway, and when it's finished I will put the .u and .int files here, that you can add in NAB update (I would try to put the mutator manually in my clients' computers, but I'm afraid of what might happen).

How would I make a number sprite that floated above each player's heads (like the crown from KingOfTheHill)?

Yeah, go to the main forum page and look at the black tabs near the top. Rightmost is the forum we had on hear for a year or so.

There's no risk to creating a new int file.

I can't really say, because it depends on what you want it to do. If you look at how the king of the hill gametype does it, it's essentially an actor that is coded to always be above the king. If you wanted something more reliable online, you're better off drawing it like the sidewinder guided disc draws info to ID players.

Oh that one.

Well, last time I tried it, clients' and server's multiplayer got messed up and had to have CP reinstalled...Besides, it will just get forgotten again if I don't post it to site this time.

Again, there's no chance of that happening if you are doing it correctly. Part of the point of having the int file on hand is to be able to test your mutator easily.
