UT99 Beta pictures from an original screensaver from Feb 1999

Post by PrinceOfFunky » Wed Jul 15, 2020 2:39 pm

I was digging through old EpicGames websites and found out that EpicGames published a screensaver in 1999, obliterat0r/eD found the link, installed Win98, created a virtual cd to import the exe packaged screensaver, installed it, we viewed it and it contained various pictures from the beta version of UT99, he later exported the installed files (an .src and an exe packaged .sfw) into a virtual floppy and sent the files to me and I extracted the .sfw and decompiled it in order to get all the files inside.

The attached zip contains these files:
- images (folder) : contains the UT99 Beta images extracted from the .sfw.
- pcscreen.zip : contains the original screensaver installer.
- UNREAL1-rip.swf : the .sfw extracted from the .exe installation file.
- UT99_EpicGames_screensaver_9_2_1999_installation_files.zip : contains the files that are installed once the installer is run, a .src and an .exe containing a .sfw.

Indeed, a very old school find. The images clearly show a very raw state of UT99. It's really nice, thank you for this.
