UT2004 Content Mania

Convert Older Mania Files

If you have installed a newer version of 'Content Mania' and have previous setups in the jcbMania.ini file that you want to keep, you may need to follow these instructions.

I have tried to keep the contents of the file the same but some enhancements have required a change to the fomat of the file. Each change is listed here.

From v53 to v54

Version 54 changed the format of the jcbMania.ini file when the package was split in to two to make the download smaller.

If you have never installed a version before v54 then you do not need to do anything.

Edit jcbMania.ini

Use NotePad or any text editor. The file can be found in the '<UT2004>/system' folder. Move any lines that start 'AddedObjects=' from the 'MutJCBSetupMania' to the 'MutJCBPlayMania' section.

Example: jcbMania.ini

[jcbContentMania.MutJCBSetupMania]
sPlayerManiaWeapon=jcbContentMania.WpnJCBSetupMania
sCurrentMapClassName=DM-DesertIsle
sCurrentFileName=Second
AddedObjects=(smap="DM-Antalus",sFile="New List",sType="Vehicle",sName="Manta",sClass="Onslaught.ONSHoverBike",vLoc=(X=-2132.850098,Y=-1119.040039,Z=-55.939999),rRot=(Pitch=0,Yaw=2861,Roll=0))
AddedObjects=(smap="DM-Antalus",sFile="New List",sType="Vehicle",sName="Scorpion",sClass="Onslaught.ONSRV",vLoc=(X=-2397.439941,Y=-2154.489990,Z=-439.399994),rRot=(Pitch=0,Yaw=3827,Roll=0))
...

[jcbContentMania.MutJCBPlayMania]
sPlayMapClassName=DM-DesertIsle
sPlayFileName=Second
sSetPower=powered
UseFile=(smap="DM-Antalus",sFile="New List")
UseFile=(smap="DM-DesertIsle",sFile="Second")
CHANGE TO:
[jcbContentMania.MutJCBPlayMania]
sPlayMapClassName=DM-DesertIsle
sPlayFileName=Second
sSetPower=powered
UseFile=(smap="DM-Antalus",sFile="New List")
UseFile=(smap="DM-DesertIsle",sFile="Second")
AddedObjects=(smap="DM-Antalus",sFile="New List",sType="Vehicle",sName="Manta",sClass="Onslaught.ONSHoverBike",vLoc=(X=-2132.850098,Y=-1119.040039,Z=-55.939999),rRot=(Pitch=0,Yaw=2861,Roll=0))
AddedObjects=(smap="DM-Antalus",sFile="New List",sType="Vehicle",sName="Scorpion",sClass="Onslaught.ONSRV",vLoc=(X=-2397.439941,Y=-2154.489990,Z=-439.399994),rRot=(Pitch=0,Yaw=3827,Roll=0))
...
The entire [jcbContentMania.MutJCBSetupMania] section can be deleted, or left, as it is no longer used. It is replaced by a section called [jcbContentSetup.MutJCBSetupMania] so could be renamed.

From v51a to 52a

The Shield and Health pickups have changed. To update, simply edit any Shield or Health base and select the new equivalent from the Other Pickups list.
