Mod Author Related: - New script profiling tool. - Added (slow) full dangling reference checking option. Logs dangling references which could cause a crash during gameplay or on GC. Use only for testing, as it is very slow, by adding bSlowRefChecking=true to the [Engine.Engine] section of UT2004.ini. I'd recommend running a dedicated server with bots with this option enabled, connect to it to start the match, and let the bots do the testing for you. - Fixed spider physics view direction setting bug - Added RotateSoundThreshold to ONSWeapon to allow mod authors control over when RotateSound is played - Moved BaseMutator.ModifyLogin() to the beginning of GameInfo.Login(). - Fix for UParticleEmitter::UpdateParticles crash in SkeletalMeshGet
