(GFY) Looking for my clan

Post by GFY SLAYER » Tue Aug 13, 2019 4:41 am

Hello all, My name is Mike, I am an original GFY Clan (GO F*#K YOURSELF) member. I began playing UT in late December 99. Some of you weren't even born yet...LOL I believe I was the first SLAYER there ever was. My tag looked like this... (GFY)SLAYER. I was brought into GFY in early 2000. Back then Mr. Wonderfuls was our clan leader. We had many rivalry's, but none greater then {CBGB}. When Battlefield and Battlefield Nam came out we also broke out into those games as well. Many friends have come and gone and I was wondering if any are still around? If not here on this forum, would anyone be able to point me to another site that may have some old time members? I see many great tags here, some are familiar as well as some names. It would be nice to see after all these years if any of the old members from my era are still around..

If not, I thank you for taking the time to read my post...

someone from your clan prommise me they will remember you with your name and clan tags.
When i,m thinking back on that time ut99 was hot and there where alot of servers online and packed with people.
The glory days of ut99 and unreal are over, they keep unreal alive with people like us who are olmost playing everyday ut and unreal.
I also remember alot of names back in those days but they are forgotten in time, and they have a busy job feeding childrens mouth while having a descend house.
Maby them with his wive are working, and make something out of them lives.
And we are still stock with ut99, the best game they made in 20 years.

Welcome to the forum
You increased the chance you will find some of them by posting here with the clan name and tag.
I think we tend to rate well in search engines due to ... some thing.
Mermaid magic or possibly unicorns.

We see a lot of the old die-hards visit here when they randomly decide to see if UT99 is still a thing.

Better get suited and booted, and get yer ass into an arena. UT99 has a lot more to offer these days (apart from players)

Thank you Dr.Flay for your responce, I wasn't aware the game is still being played. I no longer have the disks and even if I did would it play on the newest version of windows? Can the game still be purchased?

Looking forward to your responce....

Yes - the game, UT99, is still being played! :)
Yes, it can be purchased or even "had".
Doc Flay can answer much better than I...

Yes to both questions.
It might have a few hiccups on Windows 10, but many of the fixes can be found here. Running it on win 10 myself, I believe I only needed to change the mouse acceleration on my 1st time, but other than that, didn't have any other problems. Be sure to check out that "Tweak your UT Graphics" tutorial on top.
UT can still be purchased on Steam and GOG (I'd go with the Good Old Games version, personally), with a few physical copies still floating around ebay, likely.

Welcome to the forums :rock:

I would recommend also this thread.
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=373
If you got the original UT99 version you would need the patches.
GOTY UT99 has most of them already.
