I listed it wrong (UT2) when I posted it. Sorry.

Thanks Feralidragon for the links. Those are pretty good pics. I like the one he did of Futurama too. I had never seen any of these before or ever heard discussion of them. The guy certainly has talent! Thanks again.

As this came up here again...

...I decided to to a little light research.

ut99

u2

ut3

ut2k4

I didn't bother with u1, figure it's likely about the same ut99.

All of these were made by Epic Games except u2, which was made by Legend Entertainment. They're unlikely to sue anybody as they went out of business in 2004. Sure, it's a legal loophole of sorts but still...

Okay, that my .25¢

I'm done

I've had my rub a time or two with crossing that intellectual boundary line inadvertently. Twice I've gotten C&D's, once for posting too much of the system folder in my "Entire MH files download" (again, very sorry about that Epic) and the second for using the gopostals domain. Seems Running with Scissors wanted to mess with me because they own gopostal.com (they make the Postal games), and the owner fired off this to me:
CEASE AND DESIST MOTHA FUCKA! just kiddin

keep it up bro!

thanks for the love

It freaked me out a bit until I realized they were just yanking me.

The one group that didn't come after me was Valve and I was very surprised about that. I totally ripped off Portal in my fan-map MH-Portals. I used all kinds of stuff from the game and no one seemed to care. I'll tell you this interesting gem from playing Portal2 though: if you pay attention to the part where the train horn blasts you, that's the same exact sound I made for the MH map when the Merc train arrives. I'd love to ask them if they returned the favor :D
So long, and thanks for all the fish
