I Googled Unreal game and up came this site, which I had forgot existed. I was a founding member of the Unreal Old Farts clan back in 1998. Also a member of Rouge Mercenaries {RM}Drone . Glad to see someone still plays the game . I was at the frag party that Epic threw back before UT was released in Cary NC . Got to play against Cliff and Mark. The kid named Toad who was the best in the world at the time was there too. I;ll have to dig out my old install disk and load it up for old times sake. :)

Would it be possible you have any old and lost mods from those early times? Like capture the cow etcetera, or the old unreal 2d. or hell, even the old unreal server lobby that is currently not preserved...

it was downloadable as index.unr from the tech site for server admins. For preservation it would help if one person would have kept this somewhere even if in a cache...

Yup, Unreal is 25 years old this May. I was co-founder of (mars) clan, which is 20 years old. There's still a few (mars) tags in Warzone, and a few other online games. Me, I'm 57 this coming Halloween. It's amazing how time goes quicker the older you get. When I was a kid summers would last forever, and now they're over in a blink. It's nice to see the Unreal logo pop up on various games published today. And it all started with us, the Unreal community. Back then we provided the online gaming experience for Epic games, free to players around the world. And Oldunreal was our home. Where we sat around the dinner table and shared our joy of this game.

Goddam, hard to believe I signed up here for Unreal's 10th birthday and I've always felt like a newbie, but here I am, a member for 15 years and this old game is now ancient.

Watch out or you'll be attracting Luke with "mythical, ancient old Unreal game" now.

When I once posted a sentence with "mythical ancient" something in it he later personally asked me why I mentioned it.

Also he once put an image of a temple from one of the "cancelled addons" screenshots into "AI" image generator and gave it a discription of "Mythical Ancient Temple".

Imagine if such map really existed with such name, say in an official expansion pack or so. Or if all the temple maps in Unreal suddenly got their title replaced (via mutator that will be easy actually) with "Mythical Ancient Temple".

(like seriously, check for the string ~ that contains "temple" in it, in Level.Title (of the levelinfo) and if so have the new title be Mythical Ancient Temple, LOL)

Welcome Back Baal.

Always loved your silly guild name. KWAK is Quack in Dutch.
And then the Knights of War that have Access to Kill. Which is very important as to Kill is the purpose of Deatchmatch so you better have access to it. In fact, it is hard to imagine Knights of War without the access to kill. But these Knight of War do so Killing is no problem, which makes them dreadful Knights in Deathmatch.

Cant believe i missed this legendary topic. Cant believe it's already been 25 years since my dad knocked on my bedroom door and handed me the Unreal CD that would open up a world for me i could never ever forget. Happy birthday, Unreal. For many, many years to come. Still to this day, the best video game i ever played or even read about.

Hi. It's been a long time, sorry I didn't notice you messages me. I responded to your message (via your other account I think).

But welcome back!
