View Full Version : Unreal Tournament package De / Compression Tool for Linux

6th March, 2005, 04:18 AM
Because I´m just happent to be an administor of a root-server for my (our) Clan (Fanatics-of-Darkness) i made an easy to use shell script for Linux, that de and compresses the map , textures sounds etc. for Unreal Tournament (99) and 2004. Because I´m verry proud of my self made script :rolleyes:
I'd like to share this little tool to the community, because this forum (and many others lol ) helped me alot for administrating gameservers.

I never found a tool for the uz or uz2 compression, that de / compresses all filetypes in one folder ( Textures, Sounds etc.) at one row. That´s why i spend a lot of day´s and nights :P to make this tool.

If there are bugs, then please forgive me lol .

There are 2 scripts:

this file is writen in german (deutsch)

this file is written in englisch

This is how this tool works--

execute with " sh uttool-eng"

follow the settings (it stores a file in your home directoy with all the settings, sou you dont need to do the settings every time)


It decompresses a file from the folder you compressed it to and moves the decompressed file in to the right folder of your ut.
The original files stays (please make sure you have the right file permissions to move the files)

I programmed the tool for my redirection, the redirection path is local on the hdd and is accessable from the www.

[email protected]<hidden>:~$ sh ucc
dirname: missing operand
Try `dirname --help' for more information.
Couldn't run ucc (ucc-bin). Is UT_DATA_PATH set?
[email protected]<hidden>:~$

ucc is in my home directory. UT is /home/bill/ut

Ah, maybe this is it

# point to where the game is installed
echo "$UT_DATA_PATH" > "$UT_PREFS/install_dir"

my ut is installed in /home/bill/ut

Perhaps if I were to change that...

Nope. Dang.
