Re: Urban Assault on windows 10

Welcome to the forums, jasonmy10!

Running Urban Assault on Windows 10 is possible and there are many ways to do it. I highly recommend downloading these virtual disk image files and mount them with your choice of disk emulators:
https://files.metropolisdawn.com/game/UASSAULT.mdf
https://files.metropolisdawn.com/game/UASSAULT.mds

The files contain retail CD data with full contents. Should you face any problems when running the game, this article on our community wiki has comprehensive troubleshooting information on modern systems:
https://wiki.metropolisdawn.com/windows_tweaks


If you have hardware incompatibility issues, or multiplayer is not of your interest, you may also try UA:Source; UA:Source/OpenUA is an open source engine reimplementation project of Urban Assault, currently in development and so may contain some bugs and missing features.

There are many subtle differences, but the gameplay is nearly identical to the original game with a latest version release. The main topic thread can be found at here:
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1589

Manual installation is possible. But I've been informed that there is a standalone UA:Source package on our FTP repository, which you can download and play out of the box. Here is a download link:
https://files.metropolisdawn.com/game/U ... Source.rar


If you have any further questions, or spot any bugs/problems in UA:Source, please let us know!

You should download the files from the links first. Download locations shouldn't matter as long as you can locate them. RIght-click on the links and click 'Save As' option to download the files on your computer.

If your question is about how to open downloaded *.mdf/*.mds files, you need a virtual drive emulator software such as Daemon Tools or WinCDEmu, and mount the disk image files with it.

The UA:Source standalone package does not require any installation, and you can play the game (via 'UA_Source.exe) immediately after decompressing the file with WinRAR.

is there like a file where i can play as other host stations?
Yes! You are probably thinking of Metropolis Dawn which is available at https://files.metropolisdawn.com/metrop ... ansion.zip

If that's not what you remember, then it was probably a fan contribution which you could browse what's left at https://files.metropolisdawn.com/ to see if anything rings a bell

The 'Metropolis Dawn' is an official expansion pack for Urban Assault which allows you to play unreleased Ghorkov and Taerkasten campaigns.

Playing as Mykonian in singleplayer or Black Sect is only possible through community-made mods. Please have a look at here:
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=948


Installing Metropolis Dawn requires either 'Typical' or 'Full' installation of the original game with full registry entries. MD installer needs to detect these registry entries before proceeding.

If your UA registry entries are corrupted or missing, MD installer will not work. In such cases, removing and reinstalling the original game through an official installer to recover registry data is HIGHLY recommended.


Otherwise, you could copy the expansion files directly from 'Game' folder of the expansion package and paste them into your UA folder. However, doing so will not automatically create shortcuts for Ghorkov and Taerkasten campaigns. So you will have to create them manually.

Creating these shortcuts manually when MD installer is not used is explained in this post (it also contains another method using expansion test registry, but I haven't checked how it works):
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=954&start=10#p13580


Finally, if you're using the UA:Source package from above, it comes with MD data attached within. I believe there's also a readme file in the package which explains how to get the expansion data working.

hopefully i get to try mykonian and black sect from the fan made thingy i'm assuming there a sulgogar fan made thingy too right?
I believe so. Keep in mind that the quality of fan-made works are not fully guaranteed and may vary a lot, and unfortunately many (especially the older ones) mods are either buggy or incomplete. Feel free to let us know if you have further problems!

Dragging and dropping the mod files is the easiest way to 'install' a mod. It is also the most risky way since doing so will overwrite your original game data. However, many mods are primitive in design and intended to be played with no other method than such a replacement. Therefore, it's always a good idea to backup your original files before applying any mod contents.

Some newer, more advanced and refined mods utilise custom environment system parameters (-env), which allow installing and playing mod files without directly replacing your original files. When starting a new mod, don't forget to create a new save profile since the existing ones will not be compatible.

yooo i was able to play the black sect fan made was pretty fun i had to get use to having 2 host stations but overall not bad is there a sulgogar host station fan made that i can try out?
According to this thread, there are at least two completed Sulgogars mods created by Sectlord (medicineman? :D ) and O Y ME.

O Y ME's Sulgogars mod link

Sectlord's Sulgogars mod link

Some debugging might be necessary and relevant information can be found in the thread I linked earlier.

https://gyazo.com/e8af8d9d9f44c1af1ba78abdc1037111 also another question if you look at the gyazo i sent its only showing me the current machines i captured so far as the black sect wasn't i suppose to get more?
From the screenshot, it looks like you're playing a Black Sect mod that uses heavily customised dataset with entirely new units and contents. So the availability of unit types and their designs is solely up to creator's creativity and discretion.

If you want a more 'orthodox' Black Sect mod with Anvil-class host station and original units from the vanilla game, there is a mod for that but I'm not sure if it is hosted on our FTP repository. I'm pretty certain that I received this mod from a community member before, and probably still have it somewhere in one of my machines. I'll look into it later...

and 1 more thing if there is a mykonian aswell can you send the link here if you can?
There is a mod called 'Mykonian Invasion Division'.
The quality is superb, but the difficulty is considered unusually hard.


Another Mykonian mod from Urbanrace6 is also available, but this mod may contain several serious issues.
Please refer to this bug list topic for debugging Urbanrace6's Mykonian mod.

It's been a long time since I played these mods, so I can't provide a valuable answer for that question... Personally, I suggest trying out both of them!

Hello is there a way that i can edit my host station power and vechiles? like change the health and damage
Yes! There are a lot of posts (I think) here that detail what the user.txt files contain. Also a lot of information at https://wiki.metropolisdawn.com/modding/ldf_file is applicable.

Yes, these values are very easy to change in user.txt. To modify host station energy, open user.txt in your save profile, and change the values of 'maxroboenergy'. The actual numbers displayed in the game are divided by 100 from the script values.

To modify hit points and weapon damage of vehicles, first you need to know the vehicle/weapon numbers of the units you wish to change. Then adjust the 'energy' values of the appropriate 'modify_vehicle X' and 'modify_weapon X' parameters accordingly.

yay thank you also is there a easier way of download the black sect single player mod? the one i had to goto i had to drag each file is there a link to downloading the black sect with all the files in it?
The file structures of mods solely depend upon how creators built their mod packages. So unless there's a new release from the author, I'm afraid there's no other way.
