Disable own footsteps

Postby Nightmare » Tue May 24, 2016 10:41 pm

Disable own footsteps

Lightning sheep asked how to do this on TS, thought i'd write a quick step by step guide.. you can disable them in the menu, but it doesn't always work. This way will do it for every gametype. In short it removes your own footsteps, you still hear others, but it makes it easier to work out other player locations.

//=======

Locate and open User.ini file with notepad, file commonly located in...

C:\UT2004\System
or
C:\steamapps\common\unreal tournament 2004\System

Search for bPlayOwnFootSteps, there are multiple (i have 9 in mine..), set all to read bPlayOwnFootSteps=False

Then search for bWeaponBob, and make sure it reads bWeaponBob=False

save, load ut, you should not hear footsteps anymore, you still hear dodge/jump, but normal running/walking should be silent.

I have American size 15 shoes, and I'm 6'3" 300lbs+... sooo I don't think it is possible to disable my foot steps :S.... Also, I wouldn't disable them. If you increase the doppler effect in your ini you can listen to your own foot steps and use them as a control. You then crouch and listen for the enemy's. This gives you a good idea how far away they are and whether or not they are running towards or away from you. It really helps when you are 1 v 1 or if you just want to ambush someone.... Try it sometime. :)

Hi Rast, can you attach your user.ini file to a post so i can take a look at it please? Sometimes the lines "bPlayOwnFootSteps" do not appear in all the correct places, need to check over and add them..
