Engine history:
It looks pretty much like it is technically be the third KnowWonder harry potter game, and seems to be just slightly adjusted to fit the needs for Brother Bear.
They use a heavily modified UE1, with tons of harry potter related changes applied to Engine package.

Editing Brother Bear:
Biggest downside is that there is neither an UCC, UnrealEd included but the Editor package. So i made up an UCC which can be used for that game, so one can use the make, batchexport, etc. commandlet.

An even bigger downside is that the UnrealScript sources were stripped out most packages, while it was just kept for Core, Engine and Editor package and using some trick to hooked in a wrapper around the class exporter, so i succeded in extracting their source using batchexport. Also I can extract the defaultproperties for the classes with stripped source, which could be combined with some 3rd party decompilation tool.
Best way to start is probably trying reconstruct the source out of the UWindow.u, as for this package sources exist in other games, so it should be reasonable to do so.

So why I'm talking and doing stuff for that game? It has simply some beautiful assets and i like the overall style of the game. Also it has pretty good lipsynch, skeletal animations, etc. and the trees and bushes do really look great for an UnrealEngine 1 game. So the tricks they used for making these could probably be applied to other UE1 games mods.

I'll upload later the UCC and the source/defprop source i already extracted.

Nope, not yet. Actually haven't really touched it since.

I think headers would be more or less okay for a release, not great, but a start. The OpenGLDrv src i have in there still misses distance fog implementation.

Otherwise it would be nice to have a decompiler for the unrealscript there. ~

Alright. Yes indeed it would have. Does unrealed work with this after one copies it or not at all btw? I didn't try. I have found a czech localized version only, though I'd actually prefer it in english but there was no way to switch the language unfortunately for the release I have.

It does btw include czech voiceacting, czech splash screen logos and all. 

EDIT: Editor does crash :/

Regarding the editor, at least for Nerf a replacement editor ui is certainly needs to happen this year. However it is a bit vague about what changes have been done to the Editor.dll code while UnrealEd2 UI was added to the engine, so there might be some subilities to work around or find different ways to access the stuff.

Did you publish the editor since? Just wondering. Not that I have use for it now, but it should be made avaiable.
