RS/RO2 now has a new file system that will make it easier for us to update the game without breaking compatibility with custom content. The new system will also reduce the download size of future updates.

Custom Maps

Maps are published through the editor in the same way as before. Publishing will now only generate one version of the map that can be used both on the server and on the client

Mods & Mutators

Script files that were cooked previously are still compatible with this update. A new commandlet was added that allows modders to build with the new file system.

Known Issues

  • Most custom maps published before the update will still play, but some will have missing textures unless they are republished. In future game updates, missing textures and other compatibility issues will be much less common.
  • Servers will notice an increase in system memory usage with the new file system. Typically this is somewhere between 60-130 MB depending on the map. This should not affect servers that limit memory consumption to 1 GB or higher.

will file still need to be renamed to upk for server? and must files on redirection server must still use the upk extension?


Edit: I noticed a huge increase in file size of the map, is it me or is it normal?

FF-Omano_RifleOnly : cooked 14M / brewed 25M
FF-Hell_RifleOnly : cooked 22M / brewed 47M
TE-SilentHill_B2 : cooked 120M / brewed 210M

Even if updates will not break custom maps anymore, their file size increase will not go in the good way in my opinion... how will people download map that are now twice the size when they did not before..?



Edit 2: I only brewed them, i did not rebuild anything as I did not modify anything just wanted to make them brewed as it is now the good path to take for custom content.. hum is this the source of problem or is the file size increase a normal behaviour of new brewing system??

Replying to myself for that: File on server is the same as file for client, just upload it to BrewedPCServer/Maps folder instead of the old CookedPCServer folder, no renaming needed, no renaming needed for redirect file as well, keep the original brewed map as it is on both server and redirect.

I am not having any luck getting any of the custom maps loading on a server. Have put the redirect maps in the BrewedPCServer/Maps but none will load.

Even tried putting the server versions in BrewedPCServer/Maps but nothing would load.

Anyone else getting the customs working post this patch?

I guess you are trying to make old custom (before this patch, which were UPK files) working on your server, I guess you will have to rename them to ROE like the brewed ones are now. I did not try with old customs but I think that should work.

PS: do not put the redirect file on the server as it is for client, put the server file.

Make sure you put your client versions on the server (so the bigger file with the extension of *.roe). Similarly for your redirect use files with the extension of *.roe

With this update likely all your rogame.ini things got reset, so make sure you add your maps back into your inis as well.

Hey Romano and the rest of course,

i figured out on TE-Train that the offline .roe version had 120MB. But in Steam Workshop it says it is 60MB big.

So i gave it a try on Climbup and it worked first try. Check the Screenshots.
The climbup_o.roe was the old 1.31 version file.

geetz and have fun with update, upload und implent the vehicles :)

apparently steam workshop compresses files. However this still remains an issue for redirects, as yoshiro said twi is looking into it :).
