Roots Part 2

Pod casts, hmm (see comments for yesterdays post).  Never done them before but an interesting thought.  I would be a cool way to see in 10 years of Unreal.  Thanks for the offer Minister Fish.  Deffinitly worth thinking about.

These are screens I’ve taken tonight of the game that started it all.  Just the journey out of the Vortex Rikers prison ship.  Remember that this game is nearly 10 years old.  I remember having to turn the settings down when I first played it :D.  I had a P3 500 with 256 ram and that nasty onboard Intel graphics chip.  The game came with the voodoo 3 card I bought but thanks to Hewlett Packard snipping off and then soldering the jumpers on the motherboard I couldn’t install it.  Self taught PC building soon followed :D.

Enjoy the memories

The start in the prison cells

Remember this hidden bit?

The main control panel.  Remember the guy that wakes up then dies when you go near him?

The first view as you exit the ship.

And finally this classic shot.  Everyone who played Unreal back then remembers this

Remember graphics like this were bleeding edge at the time.  I would love to see this re-done in today’s engine.

I might have a go myself.

Till then

    I’ve looked up to see if there were podcasts out right now concentrated on Unreal. There were a few that showed up in Google, but now seem to be defunct and never went to far (e.g. Episode #7). A once a week podcast that highlights the past weeks reviews, some talk about Unreal-related mods, and a guest could take up a 20-30 minute slot. I know you have other stuff on your platter as I do, but it’s just a thought.

    I love the idea. It is something I want to do. I’m thinking about it:D
