UTWeapons, UTInventory, and UTRelics by .:..: (Dots)
I have made "INT" config files for these, so the mutators show-up like they do in UT (link below).
Got Unreal and Unreal Tournament ?
If you install "Oldskool Amp'd" for UT99, you can copy the maps and music from the CD to the UT folders (or point UT at Unreal), and play original Unreal and maps in UT with alternative weapons, mutators, and ENB Bloom etc.

UT Install for Unreal
Step 1: Install Unreal 227i.
Step 2: Download BotPack compiled for 227: http://www.klankaos.com/downloads/BotPack.rar or http://shivaxi.com/unreal/downloads/BotPack%20Shiv.zip
- For multiplayer online compatibility you also should download update version of the voicepacks (which are marked as downloadable for other clients): http://www.klankaos.com/downloads/BotPackVoices.rar
Step 3: Link paths to UT folders by editing Unreal.ini and add the lines to point to your UT directory):
- Code: Select all
Step 4: Download OldSkool for Unreal 227: http://www.klankaos.com/downloads/UOldSkool.rar (this helps with compatibility)
Now you are ready to play some UT in Unreal.
Note: The engine will look in the folders in that order. I keep the UT system folder available for testing but disabled, to avoid the engine trying to load something it cannot.
The UnrealTournament.ini is setup to mirror the Unreal.ini
- Code: Select all
Both UEds will now load most maps from each-others installations, without duplicating lots of files.
