Unreal Tournament 2004)
GameControl is the most comprehensive tool available to
manage and control your UT2004 gaming experience - once
described as a "Swiss Army Knife" in a post
by BeyondUnreal. GameControl
won second place in the Atari/Epic Make Something
Unreal contest for UT2003.
original purpose for creating GameControl was to help
myself become a better UT2004 player. Early on, after
becoming a member of Carpe
was overwhelmed trying to keep up with all the details
to simply take part in a match. I now use GameControl
exclusively to keep the techy stuff from eating into my
playtime. I know this tool can provide
great benefit to new players as well as weathered gamers
and hopefully be accepted as the UT2004 control system
great deal of time and care went into making this program.
you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed bringing it to
you. I should also note that many of my friends assisted
in this project - they are mentioned in the Special Thanks
section of the Release
Notes. This is an ongoing project, so there are many
more features to come :)
free to contact
me with any ideas, criticism or comments.
- Management of multiple profiles
so you can create groupings of specialized commands and
settings, then quickly switch between different play modes
such as Defense, Mid, Offense or for map specific binds,
UT2004 directly from GameControl either
in stand-alone mode or by selecting one of your Favorites
from the Favorites List you can launch directly into the
game server of your choice. The Favorites List also provides
you with current server info, game stats and player info
for the selected server.
an extended menu system helps to make GameControl very intuitive
and easy to find what you need quickly.
of external changes
to the INI files allows you to modify your settings
during the game, then roll them back into your other profiles
after the fact. This unique and innovative tool also protects
you from losing valuable updates from new UMOD's and other
to all critical game settings
as Player, Video, HUD, Game, Details, Key Binds, Aliases,
Network Filter, Favorites.
many special game settings that
are either not available or do not work properly through
the UT2004 in-game control panel.
Installer - Takes all the guesswork out
of installing stuff for UT2004. It provides a listing of
all your favorite downloaded (ZIP) map packs. Just click
to install one or more simultaneously. Or you drag any type
of game file (mod's, maps, skin packs, etc.), ZIP'ed map
pack, UMOD or UZ2 onto the panel to install - It couldn't
Map Cache Converter
you can access and play those cool maps that were downloaded
during Internet play. It will actually read through the
object list embedded in the Map file header to see if any
companion cache files need to be converted with a selected
map. This makes the process safe and simple and avoids version
conflicts during Internet play. It allows selection of any
map individually or in any combination to be converted or
deleted as desired.
game demo's directly
from GameControl - 'nuf said.
thing that sets this app apart from the rest is its ability
to directly tap into the UT2004 INT, UAX
and UTX files to provide the real information,
sounds and graphics from the actual game files. View your
player skin or export audio and textures directly from the
built in INI Editor
For those more tech savvy players, which provides ease of
navigation and modification of settings throughout the game
provides quick access to game commands to be used in key
binding and aliasing. By selecting a specific key in the
Key Binds list simply clicking a command in the Command
List window, the command is automatically pasted into the
selected key. Many special undocumented commands are included
with syntax so you can use what the pro's use.
Windows Process Killer
panel is provided so you can select the Windows processes
you want to stop prior to launching UT2004. This is necessary
if you want UT2004 to take advantage of as many CPU cycles
as possible. This list is saved and reused each time UT2004
is launched. MUAHAHahahaha >:)
application provides a handy SysTray
icon with a
menu listing all profiles and favorite servers. You can
literally select your profile and launch UT2004 directly
into your favorite server right from the SysTray. You can
also launch into a server as a spectator if needed.
Voice Comm - GameControl checks your system for
the presence of three popular voice comm programs so you
can launch them directly from the toolbar before jumping
into a game.
program updates are performed from inside the
program - just click Check for Updates under Tools/Options
and the rest is automatic.
Your feedback is critical for this application to be successful.
