No way new UT is coming out this year, it'll take at least 2 or 3 (4?) years. It's been what, two months now since they began working on it? And we don't even have the most basic thing, movement, figured out. But either way, I hope the whole marketplace with paid mods idea works out.

They did it right first time, because it was an accident.
It was originally going to be a mod for Unreal, but they got too carried-away and it grew into the monster we all love.

And yes indeedy, welcome to the forum.

But since it's an ongoing project they will always be patching it, and user-made mods can go in any direction really. If they get movement right BT will be awesome, monsters in UT4. UT99 lives on. Bit disappointed in the graphics quality of weapons and projectiles so far, but nothing is final of course. Looking forward to tomorrow's stream :D

There's already an alpha out to people with the unreal4 engine, they are running public servers and have quick scripts to compile anything new, if you don't believe me have a look at their forums. I've seen a few ut99 servers go down already because the same people are playing ut4 with eachother and are using that serverspace

Wait ...brain is working.

... insert coffee routine ...

If it were released as a "mod" or better add-on... :shock: ...would we now have all the benefits of the Unreal updates? :|

Probably. And since 226 was a hacky way to port some UT stuff to Unreal, it would not exist, so we would also enjoy Unreal's poor netcode, UnrealEd 1.0 and so much more.


Don't be too sad about this then. The split was probably for the best.

For both ...I guess. :wink:

We would have still had UEd2, because they would have still needed to upgrade their editing tools, but yes there is a compromise between the 2 games.
The main differences in play affect netcode and speed.
UT ditches certain effects you don't notice in a faster MP game, and handles twice the amount of players more easily.

Unreal 227 is still not as fast or fluid as UT when you have a lot happening. It is more flexible and more capable, but that comes at a cost.

For UE2, maybe, but for a combined Unreal/UT on UE1, I doubt it. UT was made with UEd 1.0 after all. Everything else is just fantasy.

ut99 it's the only one they did right.
UT 2k3 and 2k4 and ut3 are not their best.
UT4 is a see and wait, If it's anything like ut3 they should dump it and try again :loool:

Hello everyone,
I am agree with all that you've said. ut99 was and still is the best ... we need a 99 redone today working on all platforms with better looking models, maps but don't touch the engine (maybe just a little).
tried the 2K3 (for 10 minutes tops and through it away) then the 2K4 which was nice, but movements were too heavy, never found the speed of 99.
Never been able to try the UT3 (no linux client ... F..K Epic) even if my brother told me that I might found it close to 99, but looing to mane demos and plays, it still doesn't seems right to me.
Found Xonotic about a year ago ... and even if many things aren't 99, love it because it reminds me of it by many ways ... but I'd love to play 99 again ...
Last time i've started it ... couldn't found an Instagib server :-( (yeah i love instagib).
Maybe next time
