UnrealScript Masterclass - Part 2 - Re-creating Assault in UDK

In this DVD James Tan continues his series on re-creating Assault in UDK. James uses his 13 years of experience with Unreal Technology and Global UDK Educator with Epic, to demystify custom UDK game creation using UnrealScript. He starts by explaining how Team Infos work in UDK and how he added them to Assault. James then goes over Upgrading the Weapon System, Updates to Pawns, Creating a Task System, Upgrading AssaultHUD, Modifying an Existing Map, and Lightmass.

This DVD is an amazing resource for those looking to customize their games using UnrealScript.

Yeah a tutorial series on creating a full-fledged RPG would be great. But this almost certainly requires extensive use of Scaleform (character menus, inventory menus, etc...) making it a rather complex topic.
But it sure would be nice if someone could hold our hands through setting up save games and inventory systems, stats for players and weapons etc...

I agree with Mandy. It's hard to find any resources other than FPS game. I'd like to see adventure/RPG game creation UDK tutorials. So far I consider UDK as being shooter only game engine (although I know it's not exactly true).

Great DVDs. Hope in the future, Eat3D makes DVDs about creating RPGs & Turn-Based fights with UDK & UnrealScript. It would be nice to see a DVD where the game was not a SHOOTER. Also see examples of how to make weapons for melee and spells.

How many videos in it? I mean it seems that the videos are namely 00 to 08 only, or more (09, 10 ...)?

Your Subtitles are extremely great! It helps many foreign people whose mother-tongue is not english to learn!!!! Very helpful!!!

I wish that every EAT3D DVD, whatever new and oldest, all has their respective Subtitles as well. Highly recommended! Both the subtitles and this DVD! And pls add subtitles for all DVDs and let people download them free!

Hi James,

Question, How come when I adapted the new scripts the weapons won't fire anymore, it gives me this result in my IDE: ScriptWarning: DrawText: No font
AssaultWeapon PawntestLevel.TheWorld:PersistentLevel.AssaultWeapon_1
Function FPS_Game.AssaultWeapon:RenderStats:086C

Thank you so much for doing these, with the lacking proper tutorials and random documentation of UDK it is so much appreciated!
I have a huge wish though: could you somewhere somehow go into detail about how to optimize the multiplayer experience concerning good pings, and general smooth movement of characters/replication? This is a very technical topic and I have yet to find anything on the net that successfully explains this and points out some settings or console/server variables regarding this aspect of the game.
My main concern is: when I start a server and then connect to it with 2 players locally, the movement of the other player allways looks dodgy, and when the other character looks around, it appears as if his model animation would only update within a certain grid, it feels very cheap and is really annoying Sad
