Unreal Tournament from China!

Neat! Still sealed...the plastic wrap is pretty rough but the game box underneath looks perfect. Anyhow, a cool edition.

Assuming they still have copies available and it wasn't a second-hand store like ebay. I'm just pointing this out, I know you are a collector which makes it a must-have item

Welcome to China. I have no idea why the Brandenburg gate is there....not my circus, not my monkeys. :P I'm just glad to have the game. I have the whole UT series now from China thanks to a student of mine who shares my affinity for old PC games. In China - like Japan - games cannot be legally exported making it tough to get them.

Much of my physical collection is documented over at BUF: http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showthread.php?t=202542 A few new additions are not yet posted there.

I could have posted them here, but a little too off-topic from most of the content; not UT99-specific (and you folks are surely tired of seeing them!).

As for who got what, Epic got their money when these games were first ordered by whatever store was selling them back in '99. How long they linger in that store, when they are sold, how and to whom they are sold is of no consequence to Epic anymore; they got paid a long time ago.

Because why not! Do you think the Chinese know what it is? :P
You must construct additional pylons.
