Re: the alien rat thing

Interesting. I neved really thought about the Emissary rat texture when we first discovered the creature document for Unreal, huh.
Good find.

Re: Epic will remove Unreal games from online stores (and make UT3 free)

I completely understand. You need to be cautious when doing such things. In all seriousness though, I'm really disappointed in Epic by this news. Epic was one the few gaming companies I had no issues with (as they made Unreal, UT and etc...) Abandoning UT4 because Fortnite is the money maker? I can ...

Updates of some things: -screenshots from the Editor Shots folder have been placed into their appropriate folders (Alpha (1996-1997) & Beta (1997-1998)) Beta (1997-1998) folder: -added extracted screenshots from various magazines (since they were in fact promotional shots) https://www.betaarchiv...

Re: Unreal Image and Video Collection (Magazines, Beta & Pre-release shots, UT Beta, Box covers and much more!)

Interesting, I mean the Krall Home World text. I still wonder how the home world of the Skaarj would look like. I guess it'd be very much H.R. Giger inspired like Scorn, at least how I'd imagine it. Wasn't the cancelled mission pack going to take place on the Skaarj home world? Also, I'm not too fam...

The GasBag eating animation makes so much sense now holy shit The Rodent was most likely done just for the sake of the animation. That's definitely the artifact of Batman of Unreal or Batman Gargoyle... LOL Honestly, at first glance I thought the symbol in the upper left corner reminded me of the Ne...

Also, I would like to point out that the Art Asset disc features some really high quality images of some Unreal enemies used in magazines and ads. There's a brand new "Creature Information" document as well by David Carter from 1996 December. Featuring models, descriptions and other inform...

Thanks for your fixes and for the DM-Coret. It sure looks like a DM map after all.

Re: Separate "Predator" etc. thread

It's been a while since I saw the Predator movies, the first one is obviously a cult classic which made an impact on the Sci-fi genre back in the day. I liked Predator 2 more than the first movie, I guess there was more variety in it for me? Sometimes I like sequels more than their predecessors lol ...

I didn't know the torch secret for so long, it's kinda embarrassing lol
I mean I know that there was a secret, but I didn't know how to open the bars.
(Also I didn't think of opening the editor and finding it out either :P)

Neat! Thanks for everyone's fixes/conversions! There will be some repair works here tomorrow so I won't be able to be around, however I was going through the texture packages in 221 and just like 222 there are some differences (in 222 there were some extra textures like on metaldream the higher res ...

I'm just going through some images, does anyone happen to know the backstory of this picture?

If I remember correctly it was a re-attempt of a Castle1 themed map from someone in the Epic team maybe? I don't know

Not just the minigun. All weapons. They forgot to delete them from the start cuz' it was still for testing, when they put down a bunch of weapons at the start for some maps. Sky Town having an automag and a minigun right after you exit the stairwell is more interesting to me and why did they delete ...
