Is it strictly UT3? Because if it's not I think we already have a winner.

It's a shame that's for UT3 only. :sad2:
If it was UT99 too, i would participate and lose the contest :loool:
To noob even on UT99, to make something Unreal (even that I am currently building a SP Mod).
I didn't even tried to play UT3 :loool:

Ok, thats weird, but why the hell do you want to import there a 256 color pcx :confused2:

Maybe because most of my textures are in that format so I can import them to ued2.
And bang ! Ued4 crashes by some 10 year old file format.

If you wanna oldskool on this level, convert the pcxs to bmp, maybe to 24 bit and thats it... but I cant imagine why those really old textures should be there... I mean, you wouldnt import the sprite weapons from Doom 1 into UT(2k4) either, wouldnt you?

Umh... lol...
It's just that all the textures that I made were saved in 8-bit pcx.

This contest will definitely boost UT3 popularity and we'll see some great mods and maps. :tu:

Yep, because UT3 will never have the "UT99 feeling", unless that with this contest, maybe we can see something interesting... :roll:

There are hundreds of times more UT99 Mods, than UT2003, UT2004 and UT3 together :lol:

Even if some of them never had been released to public.

Seriously, to use such old textures in the unreal engine 3 ... thats really really ... I dont say it..

But whatever: change those textures to 24 bit and save them as bmp, then it should work with the import...

damn, I am little bit offtopic...
