UMS 2 Development Update: Beta 3 is near!

I have worked on UMS 2 for adding new options, tweaking the sim, killing bugs… and I’m happy to announce the Beta 3 for the next week. Beta 3 will probably be the last beta before the final release of UMS 2.

I have worked in the Tournament mode, one of the most requested mode that was not finished in the Beta 2. Tournaments are here! You can create custom made tournaments or let the Match Maker Wizard do it for you. You can create from open weight tournament to any weight class tournament, up to 64 fighters.

Once the tournament ends, the resumé screen shows you who won and with a simple click you can make him the new weightclass champion!

I have added a option to change the organization rules for any fight, in single fights and card fights. You can change the length of the fights, the time per round, and much more:

You can override organization default rules for any given match

In the option screen you can configure the randomness of the sim. A higher randomness means more unpredictable results. I’m planning to add some other options that will allow you to tweak the sim as you wish, like the KO frequency, the inuries probabilities, etc. I have also added an option for disabling the skins because it doesn’t work well in Windows Vista. Checking this option, you can disable the skins but all the other options of UMS 2 are there!

I hope you enjoy this. Remember you can check the beta version of the sim in the forums and you can give feedback there too.

PS:  I want to thank here to the people who are helping spreading the word, making comments and giving suggestions and feedback. Without them, UMS 2 could not be where it is now. Thanks!

Comments Maker Beta is out! We need your help!

Yes, I have finished a Beta version of the Comment Maker. I decided to give it some priority as the comments is one of the most impotant part of the sims that need a big development before the final release and we need good comments to test the Play By Play. You can download the comments editor in the forum.

Also I have created a topic where you can post the comments you make. Those comments will be in the next UMS releases. It would be great to have a hundred moves in each file so every fight will be unique and the PBP most interesting to read. If you want to help UMS 2 development check this.

Comments’ Editor

I am working again in the simulator. I have fixed and added a few things I will tell you in another post. This one is for show you the Comment Editor I am workin in. UMS 2 comments structure may be confuse if we work with the raw txt files, so I thought a tool that can help the users to make comments would be useful.

It is in his first stage of development and it only works with the “default” comments structure in UMS (some comments files have their own structure), but here you are, the new member of the UMS family:

Hope you are having a terrific summer. See you in the next post!

PS: Take a look to the right column of the blog. There is a SocialVibe banner. It would be great if you can spend a few seconds helping us to fight the famine. It’s completely free and only will take you a moment. Thanks.
