About
This mutator is a port of the UT Sniper Rifle. The mutator can be used in normal and arena play. 

Arena style removes all the weapon pickups and replaces all ammo with the Sniper Rifle ammo. When you spawn, you are spawned with the Sniper Rifle. The Sniper Rifle can not be thrown. Normally in arena mode, the translocator is disabled, however the server is allowed to turn it on. 

In non-arena style, the Sniper Rifle replaces the Lightning Gun. The Lightning Guns ammo is also replaced with Sniper Rifle ammo. 

This mutator offers the ability to change most of the default settings like fire rates, the amount of ammo in the pickups, bonus and penalties for killing or being killed, etc. Some of these features will allow you to emulate the popular "Zark" sniper mutator from UT. Check the Server Configuration section for more information. 

Enjoy,
spoon (aka supun) 

Thanks
Col Kassad - For the making the sniper rifle models work.
Fuzz[Frnz] - For the sniper ammo pickup and the Frnz logo.
Sniper Clan Frnz - For testing and being the best clan out there. :)
Ob1 - For being my Unrealscript Jedi master and being the first person I turn to when I'm clueless.
Epic - The rifle model came from UT. I'll call it even for the familiar looking health and ammo stations, re-charging translocator, and the shield gun :) Seriously, did you guys like WFUT?


 
Installation
The archived file should contain the following files (along with images for the README) 

System/SA110.u 
System/SA110.int 
System/SA110.ini 
System/SA110.md5 
Help/SniperArena/SA110/SA110.ini.sample 
Help/SniperArena/SA110/LICENSE 
Help/SniperArena/SA110/SA_README.html ( and it's support files ) 
This archive should be unzipped into your UT2003 base directory in order for the files to be placed in the correct location. SA110 will not interfere with a currently installed Sniper Arena, since it does not replace or over-write older files. Since SA110's ini file is completely different from previous version, a default version is placed in your System directory. You will need to edit SA110.ini to use your previous setting, if you have been using an older version of Sniper Arena. See the Server section for information on how to set these values. 

 
Server
Post Install
Once you have installed Sniper Arena 109, you will need to edit your server .ini file. Servers use UT2003.ini if not told differently. 

You need to add ServerPackages=SA110 into the [Engine.GameEngine] section. 

[Engine.GameEngine]
. ( other lines )
. 
ServerPackages=SA110

If you are using UTSecure, Sniper Arena 109 can run with bCheckSets set to True (tested against UTSecure 2.11). Sniper Arena 109 has the following MD5 information. This information can also be found in UT2003/System/SA110.md5. 

Executing Class Engine.MasterMD5Commandlet
==================================================
 MD5 Database Management
==================================================

Performing full MD5 on SA110.u

  MD5 = [d52407c188579a8c72a75f2cc5d1b991]

Success - 0 error(s), 0 warning(s)

You will need to add, to the section of the version of UTSecure you are currently using, the following lines ... 

[UTSecure###.UTChecker]
. ( other lines )
.
Checks=( FName="SA110.u", MD5="d52407c188579a8c72a75f2cc5d1b991", ...
  MD5Type=2,GUID="3C6D9B2CD71172B6D000C6874E3993B7", MaxGenerations=1)
bCheckSets=true


NOTE - Having extra spaces at the end of the line has been known to cause problems. I'm too lazy to test it, so for good measure don't put extra spaces at the end of the line. UT2003 urban legend #1. Oh yeah, the "..." just means continuation of the line. 

At this point, normally I'd tell you to edit the SA110.ini to your liking, but Sniper Arena 109 offers better ways to configure the mutator over hand editing the .ini file. So I'll defer this topic till after you start a server. If you like hand editing .ini files, skip this section until you edit your .ini file. 

Starting A Server
UT2003 has two says to start a server. One is via the Host Multiplayer Game menu in UT2003, the other is by using UCC.exe ( Windows ) or ucc-bin ( Linux ). For more information on UT2003 command line see The Admin Page. Here is an example ... 

Windows


UCC.exe server <map>?game=<game class>mutator=SA110.MutSniperArena109ver ...
  ini=<ini file> log=<log file>

Linux


./ucc-bin server <map>?game=<game class>mutator=SA110.MutSniperArena109ver ...
  ini=<ini file> log=<log file>

With the server up, it's time to configure the server. 


Configuration
There are three ways to configure Sniper Arena 109. 

Configure Mutator 
Web Admin Configuration 
Hand edit SA110.ini 
Configure Mutator
UT2003 allows for configuration of some mutators via the Configure Mutator located under the Mutator tab in the Host Mutliplayer Game section. Just select &quot;Frnz Sniper Arena 109&quot; then click &quot;Configure Mutator&quot; to bring up the configuration GUI. 

More information on this style can be found in the Client - Instant Action Section, since it's pretty much the same thing. 

Web Admin Configuration
Web Admin is a feature of UT2003 that allows an admin to administrate the server via their web browser. It allow you to set the game rules from your web browser. You need to have your server configured to allow for web administration in order to configure Sniper Arena in this fashion. 

 
To get to the Sniper Arena settings, click on Defaults, then SniperArena109. This will bring up the Sniper Arena settings. When done, click Accept to save the setting. Click on Restart Level to restart the server using the new settings. Rule Description

set input <key> mutate sahelp
set input <key> mutate sarifle
set input <key> mutate saserver

Client Menu Screen

Help Tab

mutate sahelp brings up this menu screen.

This screen allows you to select a sniper scope, turn on and off zoom sounds, and set the rifle shot sound you wish to be heard from your rifle. Any changes on this screen will be saved.

Sever Info Tab

mutate saserver brings up this menu screen. 

This screen shows the server settings of the current server. 

About Tab
The in-game thanks page. 

SniperArena.ini
If the GUI is not your cup of tea, you can always hand edit the SniperArena.ini file to your liking. All properties are part of the [SA110.ClientInfo] section. 

Property Type Default Description 
Scope Integer 0 Your sniper scope 
0=UT2003
1=UT
2=None
3=UT2003 Clean 
 
RifleSound Integer 0 Your rifle shot sound
0=Unreal
1=UT
2=Lightning Gun 
 
bZoomSound Boolean true Controls whether sounds are played when you zoom. 

Notes
In arena play, the Sniper Rifle is not dropped when a player is killed. In non-arena play, the sniper rifle is dropped, like all weapons, when the player is killed. 
In non-arena play, it's wise to set the drop ammo about to zero since when killed the rifle is dropped instead. Not setting the values to zero can cause a unlimited sniper ammo bug. 
To enable a Zark style play, enable Adjust Player's Attributes and set the properties. 
To allow the translocator in arena play, enable Allow Translocator in Sniper Arena. You must enable it in the normal server configuration. 
Known &quot;Problems&quot;
Throwing weapon and ammo trick. The guide to unlimited ammo. 
Cross hair comes back. The UT style HUD removes the cross hair, but now and then does not return the cross hair after a zoom. The hack is just to turn on the cross hair no matter what after a zoom.
