Bestbuy exclusive level.

Do you search a certain mutator, mod, skin, map, everything else?

The file passes VirusTotal scan

It looks for the UT install, but on my system fails.
The registry entry for UT is pointing at a valid folder, so maybe it is looking for a specific folder location.
It wants admin rights so maybe it is looking in the Programs folder.

Readme doesn't have it mentioned to be an exclusive or anything. Solid map by Desperado#2.

Thank you very much Carbon, it wasn't a rare new map but still it's something to add to the wiki lol. Didn't he later join Epic? Could be counted as an official map then :tu:

Yes he did join Epic. We still don't know whether the bestbuy one was the same thing or not. Also did anyone check the contents of the exe? Is it the same version?

Perhaps he released it public afterwards, it should be checked though.

-MERGED-

What wiki are you talking about? If it's "unreal wikia" i found a lot of inacuraccies, like treating "division" pack as official even though version 2 contained altered files and the wiki crediting a level by Inoxx that was made by Mick Beard and was cut from RtNP and not Unreal betas...

I ment more the Liandri Archives page, where at least on the 2k4 section, there is a bit called Bonus Maps, where the maps that got either featured or partly made by an Epic dev were put
https://liandri.beyondunreal.com/Unreal ... Bonus_Maps (the dl links could use an update there)

So this map (along with Inoxx's DM-Gen][ and others) could be included maybe over here?
https://liandri.beyondunreal.com/Unreal ... us_Content

Just a thought :noidea

EDIT: Also didn't know Bubbage's is currently GameStop, interesting lol :mrgreen:

It seems that a few big retailers had the same 'deal' with the bonus level. As I said, the box from which that bonus level CD came had no stickers from any particular retailer, while the sealed edition is indeed has the "BestBuy" sticker.

Marketing. Who gets it?

Yes it definitely should because GE II is less of a bonus level than this, GE II wasn't released as "official" despite being released by inoxx himself.

EDIT: Gen, not GE

EXCLUSIVE my butt, that thing is everywhere. I was getting ready to purchasing this thing but luckily Carbon here saved me from it and well done, Carbon. Coz otherwise I'd feel really cheated.

The funny thing is, it would have been exclusive if it wasn't for....guess what

If it wasn't for Deserado 2 thinking it wasn't released at all on any UT edition and him releasing it standalone later.

From the linkedin page(cannot display it fully as I have trouble logging in):
-I created a level (CTF-Baranco) for Infogrames to be included in the Gold release of Unreal Tournament. (Was never released in the Gold release)

Bit of a twist to this, check this out!


Even Flak posted in there, saying it was Baranco, but the guy later updated that it was actually DM-Chronos

Awesome!!! Yes, I have been following that thread. I really like Chronos, I play it a lot. The bots do really well here, and the shield belt is in a very interesting location. I would say the "bonus" was totally worth it. :lol2:

Looks like there's another article to add to the Unreal Wiki...
OldUnreal U1v227/UTv469 Localization Project coordinator/spanish language maintainer - Unreal Wiki
ProTip 1: anybody using the phrase "I'm a True Fan and You're Not!" is an obnoxious, self-centered, egotistical, elitist, narcissist douchebag.
ProTip 2: anybody who uses the "Royal We" when making a demand wants to pass their own opinion as everyone else's.
ProTip 3: Only the people that do nothing but criticize don't make mistakes. Do things. Make mistakes. Learn from them. And screw those who do nothing but throw poison and criticize.
ProTip 4: If the Duke Nukem Forever fiasco wasn't enough of a lesson, perfectionism leads to nothing positive. Don't be afraid of releasing a buggy product. Even the most polished product has its flaws.

Ok so, so far:
-Babbage's had CTF-Baranco
-BestBuy had DM-Chronos
-CompUSA apperantly had AS-Bridge, according to this post: https://forums.beyondunreal.com/threads ... st-2600536 ?
Any other ones? Facebook comments also mention Electronic Boutique had one too?
