Weapon Arena is an arena mutator -- it replaces all weapons with weapons of a single type, and all ammo with the ammo which corresponds to the weapon type. The default weapon is of the same type.

However, the Weapon Arena mutator allows you to choose the weapon which will be used in the Arena match. You can choose any of the Unreal Tournament weapons, any of the Unreal 1 weapons, and any third-party weapons.



Double-click the UMOD and install into your unrealtournament\ directory.

Then load up UT and choose Practice Session. Click the Mutators button. Double-click "Weapon Arena" in the list on the left -- this will add it to the list of current mutators. Click OK. Note that you can only have one active 'Arena' mutator, so make sure you remove any other such mutators from the 'current' list. This includes InstaGib. Configure the rest of your settings as necessary and start the game.

To select a different weapon as the arena weapon, click the Mods menu on the menu bar. Click "Weapon Arena Config". A dialog box will appear in the middle of your screen.

Select the weapon from the list. Once you have selected your weapon, hit enter and you should see the dialog box text change to the name of the new arena. Click Close. Remember to put the Weapon Arena mutator in your game, btw :). These settings are saved, and will be operative until you change them again.


How WeaponArena finds weapons:

WeaponArena reads .int files (that is, files which describe the contents of an Unreal package) and displays all classes mentioned in those files with a metaclass of either "Botpack.TournamentWeapon" or "Engine.Weapon".

If you have a third-party weapon which is not being shown in the list, the most likely cause is that the .int file for the package does not mention it. You are going to have to add it yourself. You might find that the .int file doesn't exist at all. Create one named after the .u package containing the weapon (eg MyWeapon.int). The easiest way to correctly edit an .int file is to copy another .int file :) You will have to know the class name for the weapon -- it will be the same name that is used to 'summon' the weapon. eg, 'MyWeapon.Pistol'. You can always load the package in UnrealEd to find the classname.

If none of the above makes any sense, email the author of the weapon and politely ask for an .int file.

If you have an .int file reference to a weapon, but no package for it: when you select it from the list, the arena description will report that no weapon was found. If you just hit close, the next time you use WeaponArena, you won't have a weapon. Not much fun, really.



There is no reference to the Enhanced ShockRifle (the instagib gun) in botpack.int. So it won't show in the list. Of course, you could always just use the Instagib mutator instead :)

Double Enforcer support is a little simplistic -- you'll get a message saying you've picked up another enforcer on respawn. Sigh. Ignore it, for the time being. In the time it's taken me to explain this 'issue', I could have fixed it, but I'm a silly bugger that way.


Thanks to mek for the UWindow tutorial and additional hints. Visit the mutation device and Mod Central for more mutators.
