Urban Terror

Name: Urban Terror


License: GPL

Description: Urban Terror™ is a free multiplayer first person shooter developed by FrozenSand, that (thanks to the ioquake3-code) does not require Quake III Arena anymore. It is available for Windows, Linux and Macintosh. The current version is 4.1.

Urban Terror can be described as a Hollywood tactical shooter; somewhat realism based, but the motto is "fun over realism". This results in a very unique, enjoyable and addictive game.

Note: Previously requested in 2008 however I think a 2 and 1/2 year gap is long enough to re-request.

Listed on PenDriveApps.

Inherently portable?

Wasn't Quake 3 inherently portable? As in, put it on a device, run it, and it would "just work"? I'm pretty sure you don't need the CD. If this is based on Quake 3, it should have the same freedom.

Try installing it, then copy the install folder to a folder on your portable device. If you'd like to try to maintain Platform compatibility, in the \PortableApps folder, make a folder called UrbanTerror, and copy everything in the install folder to that folder. Delete the uninstaller, if one is present. This will work if the app that launches Urban Terror is in the app's root folder. If not, you'll need an app launcher to do it. (The Launcher should be able to do that for you.)

I'm not sure about registry, but UrT has been passed around school now for the better part of a year without any portability issues. So yeah, Nathan's pretty much hit the nail on the head.

But there’s no sense crying over every mistake,
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Too Big

The Game is very nice, I also would like to have it as an official Portable App here, but it is too much big for a Portable App. It is about 700 MB. Maybe if its size could be reduced it could be an Portable App.

How about 2.2GB

What if it were 2.2GB? That's the size of my Deus Ex folder. (Deus Ex is about 600MB. I have a few mods for it.)

Deus Ex is practically unplayable on a flash drive. Due to how the game works and the limitations of flash memory, the loading times are terrible. I now use a portable hard drive, and it works perfectly.

Flash drives are okay if you want to feel like James Bond, but they have their limitations. You can get an 8GB Corsair Flash Voyager for about $25, and that should be fine, but if you're hurting for space, either you need a new flash drive, or perhaps you'd be better served with a portable hard drive. Walmart has them, in five or six colors, 320GB Seagate, for $60. That's a steal; I got my 250GB Seagate for $50 on Newegg, and I thought that was a steal. I love piano black, but I wouldn't have minded green or blue. But I have just over 100GB free, so I'm not hurting for space.

There are quite a few games that are inherently portable, actually. With a portable hard drive, their size isn't an issue. At all. In the least. And I haven't got to worry about performance, either (as long as the host computer is up to scratch). And on that note, (some?) corporate Dell desktops don't have heatsinks, they have intake manifolds hooked up to 80mm fans that are louder than jet engines. Don't try to run games on them. The fan will drown out the ambient volume, and you might hurt the poor thing. (Not to worry, I haven't taken apart the one I use at work, but I have seen the same model taken apart elsewhere.)

I have successfully used the launcher for Urban Terror for some time now, follow this link and follow the help files contained in the download.

I looked at this the other day

I tried downloading it... ran out of time at school. I tried again at the public library, my timed session ended before it could finish.

I'll try downloading it again. I hope I can at least take a look at it in the future.
