Merry Christmas [26-12-2022]
A litte late this year, but I was not at home. Nevertheless, I wish you all a Merry Christmas.
A lot happened this year, good and bad things, but despite the bad news we got lately OldUnreal will continue to keep our favorite games alive. We won't give up and I hope so are you :)
We have been waiting for a long time... :) [08-11-2022]
A long awaited map pack has been released!
The One is a small/medium-sized mappack for the Oldunreal 227j patch, inspired by classic unreal community maps such as "Nali Cove", "One Day" or "Tashara’s Cove". But it utilizes oldunreal's 227j patch features such as improved stability and better graphical fidelity.

Small delay... [06-06-2022]
There has been some unexpected trouble with the installer for the patch, we are working on it, but for obvious reasons the release will have to be delayed until it's solved. It's not much, but we want to provide an uncomplicated and easy install. It'll be a few days at max :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY UNREAL [22-05-2022]
If my memory serves me right and if certain sources can be trusted, Unreal was released on May 22, 1998. This makes 24 years as of today!
A lot of things have been happened meanwhile, many things have been changed, I've gained a lot of friends and also lost some of them over the years. Greetings to everyone of those stepping by here, drop me a message maybe :)
We have a nice community, still a lot support and I am happy to be part of it.
So happy birthday to OUR old love!
PS: Rumors have been told that 227j is about to be released. While I am able to confirm that, it won't be today as planned.
But the release will be within the next 2 weeks.
End of the year surprise [31-12-2021]
The year ends soon but before it ends we have a surprise for you.
The creator of Unreal Redux presents a brand new trailer for his project. Today is it’s premier on his YouTube channel.
Don’t worry if you can’t join the premier the trailer will be available afterwards as a normal listed video on his channel.
Unreal Redux runs with OldUnreal’s upcoming 227j patch and is a perfect showcase of its new features.
OldUnreal update [18-01-2021]
It's been quite a while since oldunreal had an overhaul, but we are moving to another server which require some updates and changes. The biggest change is the migration of our old reliable YaBB forum to phpBB. This system expects you to login with your username and old password known from YaBB. If you experience any problems there is also the usual "password forgotten" function. If you have any further concerns feel free to contact me.
The next change is that the main page is entirely reworked and managed with a CMS. At first, there might be some content missing because I need to move and sort the downloads, but every download will be back again within the next weeks with even more content currently on the old page.The new layout is mobile responsive, and you can use the link forums.oldunreal.com to access the forums directly from your smartphone or tablet.
Wiki will remain the same and can be reached via link wiki.oldunreal.com.

If you feel something is missing yet or if you encounter any problems, please let me know.
