as some of you know i've been having terrible problems with urban terror slowing to a crawl. at first i thought it was lag, but then i noticed that i had the same problem playing against bots offline. since quake3 runs ok on my laptop i could rule out any hardware problems, so i came to the conclusion that it must be a problem with the engine.

i decided to try running urban terror on ioquake3. i got a working copy of the latest ioquake3 svn code, built myself a completely unmodified ioquake3 engine. i then put that in my urban terror folder (same folder as ioUrbanTerror.i386) and ran it with the following script...

Code::
#!/bin/bash
#iourt - run urban terror with an svn build of ioquake

#go to the urban terror directory
cd /home/me/games/UrbanTerror

#run ioquake3 with arguments to make it work with urt
./ioquake3.i386 +set com_standalone 1 +set fs_game q3ut4

to my great relief everything runs perfectly. i can now play urban terror without any problems. :hoho:

in this post i've asked about build optimization for ioquake3. it's possible i might be able to squeeze a bit more performance out of the engine with the right settings. :)

I found also this git tree , but I didn't try yet to compile and to run the engine : github.com/TTimo/iourt/tree/master

Latest commit was done on July 06, 2008 , so it's not so recent but it includes the QL mouse accel patch and other specific UrbanTerror client changes.

I've tried yor solution and yes , it works better ( and better ) than the default and the recompiled ioUrbanTerrorClient.

BTW , my ioquake3 tree sources is already patched with the QL mouse accel patch :grin:

It works also with Smoking Guns :

Code::
#!/bin/bash

cd "~/SmokinGuns"

./ioquake3.i386 +set com_standalone 1 +set fs_game smokinguns +set fs_homepath "~/.smokinguns"

LOL .... I didn't notice this before , but setting fs_homepath in the command line , skips the loading of all pk3 files placed in ~/.q3a/baseq3 and saves lots of memory :grin:

Code::
#!/bin/bash
#iourt - run urban terror with an svn build of ioquake

#go to the urban terror directory
cd /home/me/games/UrbanTerror

#run ioquake3 with arguments to make it work with urt
./ioquake3.i386 +set com_standalone 1 +set fs_game q3ut4 +set fs_homepath /home/me/.q3ut4

U should place all the content of ~/.q3a/q3ut4 in ~/.q3ut4/q3ut4 before running this script , else u will start the game with default config and without custom maps , without finding your demos ... etc.

Hf !!!
