Why not letting the user choose what he wants to download?


Not sure how this thread came to be.. but who's ever 'bright idea' it was to slap ms patch with UMP3 is just damn right retarded... and if it happens i simply won't be hosting that.

The idea is the patch and a mappack (not just UMP3) is separate it's common sense and it's always been like that... why would anyone want those 2 zips into one is beyond me because they're clearly not thinking right when the patch needs to get updated.

geran wrote on Feb 23rd, 2015 at 12:42am:
Its a bit oversized but it is possible to 'generate' an installer package while downloading - an example of that is https://ninite.com/


I know about this, it's pretty good! most games use the same techniques and it's pretty handy! (but not sure if that has a place in the AVP2 community)

geran wrote on Feb 23rd, 2015 at 12:42am:
You let the user choose, the user downloads a program, the program fetches the selected files (and continues if the internet is down - wget is pretty good for that) and installs them all


And so they will choose (when in future i'll add two links)

I've said it before and i'll say it again (putting UMP3 with MS patch is not happening)



----
If someone else wants to add those 2 files in the future they can but once the patch gets updated... you gotta do it all again. (waste of time)

----
------------
----------------
Remember Guys/Girls - This thread is intended for UMP3 Feedback, this is not an ms patch thread or anything else.... this is about getting 'UMP3' done and hosted for everyone to play.


Agree/Disagree?

Geran had already tried in the past to build a compact setup both AVP2/PH. download is fairly light 700 mb. even if the installation process was a little rudimentary but the idea was good.(expecially for noob users)
I also note that by incorporating the installation of the dlc you could also include sp1 and mp1 addition to the masters server pachs.
would be nice to also make compulsory registration not only to check for new users but also to be able to give you the chance to download new updates available or new mappack for example.

people are lazy we use this to our advantage.

Something like that happened in 2004 and it never took off... people just didn't use it.

now we're in 2015.... not much left of this community, i doubt someone will find the time to code/program such an application.


And this is a UMP3 THREAD nothing to do with the ms patches updates etc.

Holy shit 80GB worth of maps? (GIVE ME THAT LINK NAOW)

slight exaggeration?

Don't know.... but you just seem to have a problem  if UMP3 is big in file size? you on a 56k connection or what?

If UMP3 is smaller than UMP2 then it's already failed.

00, knows what he's doing.

I wanted to light up fact that UMP3 size is not important and if someone wanna download it he will download huge files. Undecided

I dont see point of asking community for opinion when on end UMP3 will be as "you" wish.

I want to make a pack that all of you guys want but it seems like I'm getting mixed signals  Undecided


Everybody vote and tell me what you'd like to see.
Do you want UMP2 plus all the new maps/updates?
Or do you want all the maps that are fun/playable? (which is still a lot)
So vote now, all vs playable.

You're the 'Original' Creator of 'UMP' man... you don't need to listen to us... but when a UMP3 is getting made, i expect it to be like this

UMP2 All updates and new maps  and that storage yard map by JP

UMP3 is long overdue... get it done fella. Smiley

and just host it

Leave it as it is? it's more work to fish out the bad maps... not many will play them but it's nice that they are there for old times sake...

Remember i gave you the login details so don't worry about hosting.

I'm afraid a 'vote' wouldn't work on here... lol

Honestly if you just take UMP2, add HHO's map pack, Suk map pack, Imp Hunter's new maps and all the new maps that have been released on:

http://www.gamewatcher.com/games/aliens-vs-predator-2/mods
http://www.fileplanet.com/31027/0/0/0/1/section/Maps
http://www.gamefront.com/files/listing/gamingfiles/Aliens_vs_Predator_2/Maps/
http://www.gamefront.com/files/listing/gamingfiles/Aliens_vs_Predator_2/Maps/

I'd be happy with that.

Obviously UMP2 has some broken maps. I recall the bw maps having errors, lacking vision modes setup, etc. But if you're going to have to kill yourself over testing every map and removing the broken/buggy ones; then don't bother. If it's too much work to do all that, I'm perfectly happy with just combining all the new stuff on top of UMP2.

Won't kill me but it will be rather time consuming, hope you guys are not in a hurry for UMP3.
And I actually like testing maps, and I've gotten to be very good at it over the years  Grin


But I made up my mind that UMP3 will be a full pack, only the very worst maps will be deleted   Cool

How did you know Shotgun is my favorite gun?  Man I was like a surgeon with that thing   Grin
