Collection updates...

Post by Carbon » Sun Feb 04, 2018 6:34 am

Well, might as well post an update.

New items are getting hard to find, but I did happen upon a couple of things.

First, the French version, which I have wanted since HellKeeper showed off his! Not sealed, but in excellent condition.

Then, a sealed UT2004 SE! The plastic looks a bit rough, but it's in mint condition and quite hard to find sealed. Very happy with this one! :rock:

I hope you noticed how wonderful the french box is, with no sign of the world "Unreal" anywhere.
Pretty confusing. :D

It was a different time without Google translator... so they just translated what they could... :lol2:
(either that, or perhaps the word "Unreal" is at the top of the box, we didn't see every angle :mrgreen: , or it's just a knockoff version)

Shouldn't it be then "Surréel Tournoi" ?

Indeed! This is why I wanted it so bad! Also, the French version has a tab that holds the cover closed, unlike all other country's editions which lack such a tab.

I thought that maybe "Unreal" didn't translate so well into French; many times the names of games simply don't work or are somehow offensive in other languages and thought maybe in French "Unreal" lacked context or something. :noidea

Not really, it isn't offensive and translates transparently to an exact equivalent, there's no evident reason. I'd like to know what the editor was thinking. :???:

Sorry to bump, but...

Just in, Unreal from Japan! I have longed for this one for a while and now it's here! Good shape..a real treat.

I haven't opened the CD yet (my CD-ROM isn't connected) though...probably nothing remarkable.

Nani!? :shock:

Sugoi! :rock:

As an aside, did anyone notice that there's a Japanese server with 30/30 players (most of them fakes for sure)?
I tried to enter it, but got rejected, so probably they are only allowing Japanese IPs.

An Japanese server? Where? I mean what's the IP?

Is it the GUST one with that mapvote which allows multiple sessions ?
Never saw any other JPN servers.

Nan demonai :loool:

!!!Yarmero!!! -- I remember this from old MHJ and HOF servers.

I live an hour away from Japan, I should really try to get my hands on the JP version of UT.
Japanese servers are pretty much the only servers I can get a good ping to. :sad2:
There is the がち ごや server which runs a very unique setup. Not always stable but interesting.

They're empty right now, but it seems they fill up every once in a while, and this time I was able to enter (I guess back then it was really full, although it didn't list more than 2 real players...).

Hey Carbon, I would very much like to know what version is this UT2003:
01.jpg
And where can I get it?
As most know, I have a specific place in my heart for UT2003 and I've never seen any cover art for it other than the classic one, with Sapphire, Malcolm holding a flag and the alien with a rocket launcher. I've seen picture of this cover, featuring Cannonball holding the Bombing Run ball, but I've never seen it on the box itself. I need it.

In Germany was the cover with Cannonball pretty common. Later versions got the default cover with Sapphire.
