Mod DB and UTU News

16th September, 2008

UT Unlimited now has a front page of sorts, just a temporary one at the moment.  Hunter is doing sterling work and much praise and thanks must go to him.

In addition to my last two posts I want to introduce a site, Mod DB.  This lists lots of mods released and in development for a number of games.  UT3, as well as the rest of the unreal series, being included of course.

If you still think the UT3 scene is lacking then have a look through that site.  There’s more than you think.  Plus, you’ll find that something to interest you.

Till then


Servers Are Back

14th September, 2008

Well most are.

The exploit was a memory call within the unreal server code (I know nothing about programming by the way :D). The guy has now released two unofficial patches for server admins. One for 2k4 (Windows only at the moment) and for UT3 (both Linux and Windows).  Those files are posted at the guy’s site.  He seems to find these exploits, have his fun for a day or so then release patches plugging the holes.  I wonder if he realises or cares about the damage he does?  I doubt it.

More finalists of the Make Something Unreal Contest have been announced.  This list has been posted here originally over at Beyond Unreal.  I’ve C&P’ed for those to lazy to go there :D.
