Is the master server for the community pack down? i am asking because it keeps timing out when trying to view populated servers, yet the weird stats on the news page and the MOTD still show.

supermobix - 07/06/2022 - 00:27

super fun game i'll install the community pack eventually, any active online players?

Graphik - 06/08/2022 - 04:59

My sister and I just loaded up the game for the first time in years and played a few rounds, thanks a ton for keeping the master server running!

This was a decision made to support updates to the renderer. Older PCs don't like the new D3D rendering tricks, but Nerf 300 will have another version altogether.

FYI, on classic PCs the upgraded Direct3D driver crashes with an out-of-memory error. I had to copy the original D3D driver to get it to run.

really enjoying the additions to the game, especially the extra maps. Only recently discovered this game but I'd been playing Unreal Tournament for years and this was a breath of fresh air.

AzazelT4C0 - 04/20/2022 - 21:11

Working good now! Thanks again. Sorry for the slow reply.

Nerf 300 beta Patch Notes Thread

4 years 1 month ago #618 by Rajada
  • Added a pickup sound for the Air Tank.
  • Amphibious cheat now is a toggle command, complete with messages indicating the state of the cheat.
  • Fixed Amphibious command so it no longer breaks when you're already underwater / drowning when you use it.
  • Fixed being able to lower invincible player's health to 1 with the Smite commands.
  • Water World mutator now removes Air Tanks (since all players are amphibious in this mutator anyway).
  • Water World mutator now sets all "stand open timed" movers to "bump open timed" since you are incable of standing on a mover when underwater.
  • Amphibious players can no longer pick up air tanks (they don't need them).
  • Amphibious bots will no longer want to path to Air Tanks.
  • To prevent soft-locks, you can no longer use the KillAll command on the Actor class, Pawn class, your own class, and any subclass of the PlayerPawn class. Bot classes can still be used within these restrictions.
  • Updated package dependencies.

  • Player camera position is now calculated such that screen effects while spectating, guiding discs, or viewing from other non-player entities are relative to the position of those entities, and not always based on the position of the player.

Please note that I am aware of some lighting and texture issues in this version of the game. Some major steps forward were made in the rendering engine, and not all materials reacted well to the changes. You might find that there are some really inappropriately shiny surfaces and some textures missing transparency. I am aware of these, but you may report the missing transparencies so that I can track them down quicker.
  • Per map backdrop support added (still being worked on).
  • Removed the hit and death effect textures from Engine and moved them to the more appropriate NerfRes package.
  • Lots of rendering back-end changes.
  • Fixed wrapped textures not displaying correctly in editor texture browser.
  • Now using FP16 HDR framebuffer for lighting calculations and rendering.
  • Solved some of the shading issues on surfs with code cleanup.
  • Textures now require alpha channels to be interpreted as translucent. Added new settings in texture to help facilitate other cases of translucency including coverage vs opacity rendering.
  • Code cleanup on team-checks for damage events. Solved many small issues with interpreting whether a shot was friendly fire or not, or even should count as damage.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the bonus 25 or 100 points for a hit or chest-hit from being awarded when the hit resulted in a knockout.
  • Removed all references to engine-bound sound effects from point targets in default maps. They were replaced with correct file references as the sounds had been moved.
  • Removed HitPoint and PointPickup classes from Engine and moved them to NerfI. Old implementations utilizing these items were updated to be no longer engine-dependent.
  • GameInfo classes now handle the spawning of PointPickups instead of the player's code, meaning it can now be modified or disabled in custom gametypes.
  • Replaced several instances of "goomba stomp" code doing some finite amount of damage. These now directly call death routines, making them impossible to "cheese" with the right armor setup.
  • Fixed a mip-map texture loading bug.
  • Added some initial translucency alpha channels to vanilla textures that need them. Note that I may have missed some, but I am still working on them.
  • NerfTeleporters and any child class can now discriminate entry based on team number. By default this behavior is disabled.
  • Fixed a bug in NerfEd where focus would be lost when clicking inside any viewports, requiring you to click the toolbar to use any commands and shortcuts.
  • Fixed an out of date texture package (NerfMap.utx) throwing logspamming errors about alpha properties.
  • Fixed an improperly formatted error string for class load mismatch errors.
  • Fixed some incorrect metaclass descriptors in that were changed in a recent patch.
  • Fixed some outdated instances of 'Health' and 'Armor' base classes used in code.
  • Updated all file dependencies.

  • Fixed some missing texture property issues.

  • Fixed a few edge cases within the Nerf Arena mutator with single ball pickups not being replaced properly.

  • AR-Tut changes:
    • A warming up Ted now waits in the BallBlast area.
    • Added decorative lift controls to make the lifts more obvious.

  • BotBait can now additionally instruct AI to shoot triggers or decorations and do so based on the state of a linked mover.

  • Improved AI rating of weapons while being underwater.
  • Fixed more graphical issues with logos.
  • Updated and added several new editor class icons for better readability.

  • Fixed some bugs in explosive ammo mutator classes causing some ammos to not respawn after exploding.
  • Added additional mover target skins.
  • Gamemodes in the maplist, server, and botmatch menus are now sorted by name.
  • Adjusted the naming conventions of bonus maps from hard-coded roman numerals 1 through 10 to supporting the numbers used in the map filename prefix. For example: PMX24-Luna becomes "Luna Bonus 24".
  • Maplist menu no longer unnecessarily saves configuration during each step of a maplist clear operation.
  • Fixed a long-standing bug that would crash NAB when clearing a maplist or mutator list with 32 or more items.
  • Botmatch map preview text box now shows the friendly name instead of the file name.
  • Map friendly name is now pulled from the map file itself, or failing that, falls back on the default filename conventions.
  • Fixed fast weapon switch and auto weapon switch buttons not working at all.
  • Updated dependencies.
  • AR-Tut changes:
    • Fix for bad masking on some surfaces.
  • All maps changes:
