TM2 (Russian modification)

You can download the mod from the link:
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B7UbA8NgGz3-YURCeFN5QnlDWEk

All changes in order to make the game more suitable for multiplayer. Let's see what has changed.
Interface:

...

1) Now all resolutions supported by the screen are available.
2) Radar. You can change the size of the radar. The color indication of cars has changed (each car has a color characteristic of its painting). Interviewing cars and updating has become more frequent, so circles in the radar move smoother. When the machine disappears, its indication on the radar disappears (in the original it did not work). Radar, as before, can be hidden.
3) The lives of enemies. The lives of the nearest enemy are displayed. Added icon for quick perception.
4) Your life. An icon has also been added for a single style. For some cars, a hurry indicator is built into the strip of lives, you can read about it below.
5) List of weapons. You can customize the size. To the left of the list is a vertical turbo indicator and next to the speed value. The energy indicator is on top (for special movements), under specials indicator, if it is not typed, then the player has the maximum amount of weapons.
6) Score. There are several display modes:
     a) team account
     b) individual
     c) display of mode “a” and “b” together
7) Camera position There are 3 main modes available, in addition, you can flexibly adjust the viewing angle and distance (Combination "Radar + Camera View"). The camera now does not change its mode arbitrarily, as it was before in some places on the map.

Maps:

1) Pharmacies were not allowed in the TMA rules, therefore, whenever possible, all pharmacies were replaced with other useful prizes (Turbo, dynamite) in the maps.
2) All maps are open for selection immediately.

Weapons:

1) Homing kicks out 7 units(was 10) and now when hit does not discard the opponent’s car
2) Fire kicks out 10 units(was 7) and when hit, knocks down the opponent’s car on the move.
3) Remote - normal damage increased from 25 to 30, but air damage reduced to 40 from 50
4) Shield - the duration of the action is about half a second (it was about 10 seconds)
5) Jump - jumping is not worth the energy

Special:

1) Hammerhead - infinite Specials
2) Grasshopper - Special cannot be shot down with a weapon, and you can disable it yourself
3) Warthog - over time, the rockets explode leaving fire, the damage from the distance is not lost.
4) Spectre - now it have much less aim (like "fire"), but a little more powerful and still flies through the walls.
5) Mr. Slam - for few seconds, a shield is given blocking a bit of damage, a large increase in speed and an endless turbo. Also, the rush guaranteed shakes 3 times and grabs all the cars.
5) Twister - maximum 1 Special,you can set only 2 mines during torsion and all incoming damage is halved
6) SweetThooth - maximum 1 Special, accumulates faster. Now this is a spiral missile with very good directivity, but low speed.
7) Shadow - see Remote

Cars:

Almost all large cars have increased mass. Due to this, rico and tossing up from explosions are worse on them. Now each car killing an enemy gets a small bonus, which depends on the type of car

Vehicle balance changes and kill bonuses
1) Hammerhead - health 160 (was 130), increased mass
Bonus: 25% of lost health, 15 turbo
2) Outlaw 2 - no changes
Bonus: 1 napalm, 1200 energy
3) Warthog - no change
Bonus: 1 Special, 5 turbo
4_ Mr. Grim - no change
Bonus: 20% of lost Health, Special cooldown reduction
5) Grasshopper - 120 health (was 110)
Bonus: 1200 energy, 20% of lost health
6) Thumper - Burning does not work (but a direct hit with napalm gives damage)
Bonus: Special cooldown reduction, 10 turbo
7) Specter - no change
Bonus: 600 energy, 1 power rocket
8) Roadkill - no change
Bonus: 2400 energy, 10 turbo
9) Twister - no changes
Bonus: 1 rocket power, 20% of lost health
10) Axel - Slightly altered shot height, health 140 (was 120), slightly lower speed, reduced weight
Bonus: 2 homing, 300 energy
11) Mr. Slam - health 150 (was 140), more responsive handling, increased mass
Bonus: Special cooldown reduction, 10 turbo
12) Shadow - no changes
Bonus: 800 energy, 5 turbo
13) SweetTooth - increased mass
Bonus: 25 turbo


Connetcion:

Gone are the days when we used Kali, Evolve, Hamachi, etc., now tm2 has its own software:
tmchu
and
TMC
(GUI tmchu)
tmchu
looks like this:
...

TMC
looks like this:
...

Instructions for use are on the link at the beginning of the topic, but if there are questions, I will describe the connection process in other popsts. For beginners, the changes may seem like complications of the game, but you need to drive a few games to understand what was done and why.


PS: I hope you enjoy what we have done and you can play your favorite game with new sensations


This topic is dedicated to everyone who has been with us on this long way:
Mario, Paul, Nikotin, ILmary, Master, Dolphin, Metal Pasha, Ali, Nikanold, Svin, Doctor Voron, Bob and many others. We did everything we could so that this game is not forgotten

I should name the topic "TM2PC (Russian modification for Online)"as the main changes for the multiplayer, but I can’t fix it anymore
(


I tried to demonstrate the main changes in this video. There will also be a video on installing the mod and instructions for the tmchu and TMC programs.
Have a nice watching:

The first version of the new TMC is ready!


You can download it from the link:

https://cloud.mail.ru/public/cb4G/jEu9iZEmW
The new version is compatible with the r2p assembly and I think that it will continue to be supported.

Summary
: the new version has all the same features as the old one, the server works, plus added a few features. You can create a lobby with the original game (changes: health replenishment changed to turbo, shield 1.5 sec, fire knocks out 10 instead of 7, and homing 7 instead of 10 units) or a lobby with a game mod, where the balance of cars has been fixed and bonuses for killings have been added (full description in post above)

Very important!

Before starting the game for the first time, go to Game and switch the Enable Direct3d setting (off-on) to include the necessary libraries
...


What's new in it:


Interface

I made the interface as in the previous version, in the main window there is a Menu, a Module for local connection and a Module for games on the server, at the very bottom there is a strip of information
...
You can collapse unnecessary fields and minimize
...

The main settings menu has decreased, you need to specify your nickname and it should not be the same as others, you need to specify the path to the ld.exe file and you need to specify the server address, you can not specify the udp port, the program will allocate it for you, but if you know how to open ports, it is better indicate open
...

In the View menu item, you can adjust the display of windows and other things, such as sound volume (this was requested in the previous version).
...

The Game menu item remained almost unchanged.
...

And I added another Lobby item, where you can save the lobby settings that you will create by default, or create based on the latest settings.
...

Added the ability to configure all lobby parameters and a new feature to add bots to the lobby window for the host.
...

Adding bots works like this: the host adds bots and selects machines for them, after that he can start the game, the lobby remains open and the one that comes after can be added to the game by occupying any of the bot machines, such a delayed join to the game is obtained.
...


Future plans:

1) I have already implemented the mechanism for viewing the game, you drive around the map but no one sees you and you can watch other players through the hot key
I want to develop this feature and make the map display on top with small cars on it, the player hovering over the lobby will be able to see a summary of the game at the moment: score, lives, how and where who drives.
2) I also want to implement a quick change of cars with the help of bots, so that you can select several cars on one card and change them in one session (I have already partially implemented this functionality, but I still need to bring it to mind)
3) and if we talk about very long-term plans, I want to collect match statistics and personal achievements of each player (time spent in the game, wins, rating)


Thank you for showing interest in what I do, I hope to see you on the new TMC server, write your feedback and suggestions.



ps Mario we remember you...

First, I removed all links prior to this post.

If possible, dear moderators, change them to:




Now this is the most relevant link in this topic, you can download the r2p assembly from it and it has everything you need for a multiplayer game. To start multiplayer, just click on the appropriate button:

...
After that, the TMC program should start, currently the current version is 0.0.3:

...

Slightly changed the interface and added logs and the Game, Archive menu

...

When you connect to the server for the first time you will be given the name player_ and a random number, you will be highlighted in bold and a dark background bar in the list of players
...

Now the Settings menu looks like this:

...
When you click on Settings, the program is completely disconnected and the local module and the server one are turned off, if there is an auto connection, then after closing Settings the program will connect automatically

View menu

...

Window Lobby

...

The statistics page looks like this:

...


PS
I continue to test the program and improve it, if something doesn’t work out for you, don’t be upset, you can contact me in any way available to you and describe your problem, it is advisable to attach a screenshot of the error to the message and describe in detail at what stage it occurs.

PPS
At the moment, it has been noticed that Direct3D is not working for some players, you can try setting the game to run in windowed mode in r2p, for example, with a resolution of 800x600 and select 800x600 resolution in TMC, if Direct3D works, then the reason is to set the correct resolution in TMC.

New version of TMC 0.0.5beta released!

Main point: TMC now has joystick support


Download:
https://cloud.mail.ru/public/M73y/BpSoZyQqC
these links will also update to 0.0.5beta soon:
http://tm2pack.brut.me/
https://drive.google.com/u/0/uc?id=1d5A_TiVHqyuUyOcCvuhEFDPuhltsdzS6

The game has its own joystick setting, I tried it and I didn't like it. All turns while driving
forward occur as if the Tight Turn button is held down. I know that someone got used to it, so I left this mode in TMC:
...
For the rest, I added a keyboard key mapping mode (as third-party programs do it).
To map to motion, a keyboard key must be bound, only after that you can assign a joystick button to it.

Here's how it works:

1)
Go to the appropriate section of the Game - Joystick settings:
...
2)
Select the mode with the checkbox:
...
3)
Press Find Joystick and if you have a joystick connected, the program should find it, a button mapping table will appear:
...
4)
After mapping and closing the Game Settings window, if you have the original mode selected, then the data will be written to the registry, if the first mode, then the data will be saved in the program settings.
5)
When starting the game, the joystick should work.

ps can't map buttons to Numpad 0..9 keys
pps i added the word "beta" to the version, because we need to test all kinds of joystick models, I will be glad for any feedback, does your gamepad work in the new version of the TMC?

New version of TMC 0.0.6 released!


...

Download:
https://cloud.mail.ru/public/M73y/BpSoZyQqC
[passwod: 
tm2
]

unfortunately, antiviruses swear at ld0006.exe, so you have to use a password, if you are going to use this version of ld, then add it to the exceptions


these links will also update to 0.0.6 soon:
http://tm2pack.brut.me/
https://drive.google.com/u/0/uc?id=1d5A_TiVHqyuUyOcCvuhEFDPuhltsdzS6

What's new?


1) The choice of the ld.exe version (5 or 6) has been added to the settings menu, in the 6th version there is a display that the opponent’s car is on fire or got into frost, this helps to better navigate. The version is switched immediately by pressing the desired button.

2) Added choice of interface language. Now the default is English, Russian has been added to the language pack, if you wish, you can add other languages, the language file is located along the path: TMCdata - languages ​​- TMCLanguages.xml
Language changes when selected and clicked Apply:

...

3)  In the Game tab, added the volume setting in the game, when you close the tab, the setting is immediately saved to the game registry:

...

4) When you open the Keyboard tab, your control settings in the game are loaded from a file in the registry, after closing the tab, these keys are saved to the registry and to the settings file ld.exe - loader.cfg, if for some reason your settings in the registry have gone wrong ( or you accidentally deleted them yourself), you can try to get your old settings from ld.exe

...

5) In the Lobby tab, added saving statistics after playing in the background, if there were no deaths in the game, statistics are not saved:

...

6) Added a tab About TMC. It has a brief description and my contacts. Another file is loaded with a description of the changes made to the mod:

...

7) In addition, minor bugs were fixed and some modules were rethought. a bug was found in ld.exe: when you blow yourself up on dynamite or a shadow, if after that you die, then dynamite or a shadow did not explode on the opponent’s side, I fixed it by removing the death flag, a car with zero lives is displayed on the screen some more time but in the very corner of the radar.


I'm putting TMC on hold for the time being and moving on to another project.
At the moment, there is everything for a comfortable game in Twisted Metal 2 for PC.
PS Peace and goodness to all)

UPD:


1. Xbox 360 gamepad


I managed to get an Xbox 360 gamepad and finished off its support in TMC. To do this, you need to calibrate - set the corrections for different axes of the gamepad:
...
This will increase the distance at which the stick buttons will be pressed and remove accidental presses, for the test you can set 10000 on all axes and check.
The calibration process is described in more detail in the tooltip on the button in the program.
After binding the joystick buttons to the keyboard keys, you need to leave the keyboard mapping checkbox enabled and close the window Game, the joystick will turn on at the start of each game.

2. Software version check


I added software version check inside the lobby and other functions on the pop-up menu on the right mouse button:
...
if the versions are not shown in the chat window, then the player has an old version of TMC installed that does not support this functionality

3. Translations


I stream games on my channel: https://goodgame.ru/channel/Endrew_Smith
it is restreamed to twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/twisted_metal_2
(twitch deletes records at a certain interval)
and youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsf2sD1gJWus1OUrq2fGwlQ
(youtube degrades the quality a little)

Here is one of the latest 2v2 team games:

As you can see in the video there is a view from each car, plus a top view of the entire map schematically (as in GTA), life bars and team score, here I use a trick in the game itself: watching the opponent (via the f7 button). TMC has a lobby mode, in which it becomes open for viewing by anyone, and this technology is used here. I created 3 virtual machines and with a special version of TMC I transfer player traffic to them, each virtual machine has its own game and in it I set up cameras for different opponents. This approach has several drawbacks, such as camera jerks on monitors, but I will not dwell on them here, in general it looks pretty good and you can quite evaluate the game of everyone (and check if any cheat programs are used). for the top views of the map, I created a separate traffic analysis module that draws me everything that I could take out useful from it. Of course, I would like to add shots, but with this everything is much more complicated. This version of TMC is made specifically for streaming, and while I do not distribute it. But if anyone is interested I can share.
