A warm welcome to all the UT99 fans!

In these forums, you can discuss about UT99.

If you have found new Downloads, it would be nice if you tell it in the Category "Report new Downloads".

If you want to say something about UT99.org, you can make this in the Category "Suggestion, Critism, Questions". I would be happy to get your feedback. :)

Otherwise... I hope you enjoy it here! :)

I was totally suprised by the fact that someone made a new everything-UT99 related website + forums. I suggest you make some heavy promo work for your site and forums in order to get a basic new UT99 community run here!

Yes, I like UT99 very much. But every website I have visited, was either a general Unreal Tournament website, but in majority focused on Unreal Tournament 2003, 2004 and 3, or a website only about mutators and mods ( thousands of usefull and(!) useless downloads without description), about mapping or only for one gametype. Or it was a clan website with only some tips & tricks. So it was my idea, to collect all (important) information and knowledge about UT99 to make a new "all-in-one" website. UT99 is very old and i think it needs really a representation-website which includes nearly everything you need or you want to know.

And my personal opinion: I dont like these big commercial websites, that finally only want to sell something. *g*

We need ONE website, not hundred. We need a well arranged website. Not here some mutators, tips and reviews, there some mutators, tips and reviews and maybe some skins, and behind the hills a lonely mapperpage, and so on...

For the downloads I have collected (there are lot of more downloads on my PC i must upload), I found nearly 10 websites with so differently mutators, and some mutators with the same function but from different authors. I think they didnt know that there was another mutator what did do the same.

Why the hell this big chaos!?

ut99.org is my personal contribution to this situation and i hope, there are some people in the world, who want to help me to collect all information and publish them here on ut99.org. I cant do everything. ;) I have never made a map for UT and I dont have experience with UnrealEd. So this is one of some professions, for that I search some staff members. :)

And if you dont want to write somethin or to help active on this page, I would be glad if you advertise for ut99.org in UT servers, in forums, in clanpages, wherever. ;)

(Im sorry about my (possibly bad) english, its not my mother-tongue ;) )

yes, indeed, I really share your opinion, UT99 is old so the majority forgets about it while shit like UT3 is pushed, pushed and pushed.

Well I'm looking forward to join as staff member, specialized in mods, mapping and uscript/c++.

I'll advertise for this page on several sites, but could you give some sort of banner or something?

This site and it's board really needs more members.

Hey,

Just Joined the forums. Nice site you set up. Got some stuff even I didn't see before (UT veterain here). Good job so far! This forum could use some extra subforums like: general discussion and skins.

Keep it up! :wink:

It's so nice to see that UT99 is still played after 10 years. (ok, almost) And yes, UT stuff is very scattered around. The plan of organizing everything won't work 100% well. That would mean that this site would be the central core for all UT99 players. And not all the other websites would agree on that. They also want popularity and stuff. But good luck.

About me... well what can I say... I still can't aim well whit the sniper :P

That's good. Makes the site more popular.
And no, I read your post in Unreal Playground.
