Hah. Those sounds are easy to get. I would think it's possible.
Play a sound if 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 + actors are killed within 5 seconds of each other. It would be epic indeed.

I'm working on redoing the scene, editing the terrain a bit, and rebuilding the base and background to fit a higher res. I'll have to look for outside help for coding the Lua I may need.

Can be done.

Just have an internal track of last kill count.

If the kill count goes up(oh, this is checked at few sec intervals via timers), play music that is the multi kill sound.

Since you're one of the go-to guys for Lua, is a CTF gametype possible? Either replace kill counters with new counters for the flags captured, or just overwrite their function to only report a count if a flag is brought to the opposing flag zone?

Then the winner would be the first to 3 or 5 or w/e.

Sure, syncing kill count to a variable is possible.

It is also possible to check if an object is in an area, then kill it and increment one of the counters.

Main page updated! Helpers with Lua wanted!

EDIT: Red and Green Base flags are recolored from Nova's original white one:
Red: Image
Green: Image

If shading is needed I'll rework them. Just glad they're in the bases for now.

looking good but I still hope to see one using the BW:M stuff (it has respawners! )

Progress on V 2.00 UPDATE:
mail2345 has kindly volunteered to help coding on yet another of my mods, and has written a really good Lua file for CTF gameplay.

We are currently bouncing versions back and forth trying to iron out major gameplay bugs, but currently we -can- capture flags, keep score of them, and win/lose games based on a preset capture goal.
Also, we're trying to implement CTF gameplay sounds I have ripped straight from UT'99. At the moment they are affected by gameplay lag, and thus slowed down. We're currently trying to find a workaround, but we have sounds for the following events:
Flag Taken by Actor, Flag Captured, Flag Returned, Match Won, Match Lost.

In addition, mail2345 has written some Lua to track kill combos, and we have sounds for the following:
Double Kill (2 actors killed within 5 sec of each other)
Multi-Kill (Same as above with 3)
Ultra Kill (Same as above with 4)
Monster Kill (Same as above with 5 or more).
Currently there are major enough bugs to put off releasing any form of this map in this new form.

I eventually plan to implement a UT99 original weapon set for use with the map, but I will definitely get the scene in working and playable form before that. Hopefully this will be the first in a line of UT99 CTF maps.

As far as I know you aren't going to be able to get around the frame sync issue.

UPDATE: Ok people.
It's finally time for the first public release of Facing Worlds V2.00!
I would like to pay extreme, and I mean out there, gratitude to mail2345 for basically pulling Ctf code out of nowhere and making it work in whatever way possible. After going through probably 5-10 different builds of the scene, we finally came up with a decently working model.

Any and all constructive criticism is welcome, as well as any bugs or oversights. There's a lot of code at work and a lot of stuff that had to be beaten into place.

NOTE: This is a map intended for 2 HUMAN players to enjoy. There is no AI spawning, as they wouldn't do anything remotely CTF related anyway.

Check main page for the file and features!

To get around the sound desync you could make it so that once the sound is played, force non slowmo mode, then if it was returned before activate it again.

If that's actually the error you were describing, I'm not really sure.

Yeah, that's the workaround mail2345 used in the lua code. It forces ctrl+o mode only for the duration of the sounds, and returns the state afterwards back to normal. It works quite nicely here, where there's a lot of custom sounds.

Nice work, to bad I can't play with anyone... I prefer the old bases, they were bigger and a lot more interesting.
