I'm back and I want to play EO. When's the next game?

  • Two Factor Authentication is now available on BeyondUnreal Forums. To configure it, visit your Profile and look for the "Two Step Verification" option on the left side. We can send codes via email (may be slower) or you can set up any TOTP Authenticator app on your phone (Authy, Google Authenticator, etc) to deliver codes. It is highly recommended that you configure this to keep your account safe.

I never really left I suppose. But I hardly check the forums much anymore. I am happy to see that EO is a thing? Or at least, I hope it is.

Right now UT99 EO servers have slipped back into retirement.

There is a UT4 EO alpha that you could probably get your hands on if you ask Rip nicely. No servers running it yet either so it'd just be local bot play.

Very soon I'd like to drum up enough interest to get it on a server and do some online testing.

I'd be interested to play some EO this weekend if anyone wants to.[/QUOTE]

Hey Jack! The only thing going AFAIK now is the development of my EOish mod for UT4 and I cannot seem to get any interest for it so it has started to sag. If you would like to help me test it please let me know. I'm happy to have anyone playing it and giving me feedback right now but am not ready for it to be public yet. Maest has been helping me test it some and it's mostly complete but still has a few bugs and config isn't in yet.

Good to see some activity here!
 
Oh yeah man for sure. I'm currently jobless, so I have free time after lunch when I pretty much give up for the day on job hunting. I am "starting" to start up UED as well to get back into level design. I could probably gather up a few guys to play some EO whenever you feel like it. Just give me a download link and a few days to get everyone organized and I'll keep this thread updated. Will most likely be a few new people along with some older BuF guys I still hang out with all the time.

Sorry to hear that Jack, hope your luck turns around soon....

Online/LAN play is further off unfortunately. It's only suitable for offline play currently. But, my development stalled because there was no interest. If there's interest, I'm much more motivated to work on it. That's just the truth, it's hard to keep working on the same thing after putting many thousands of hours into it. Especially when there's other things you're interested/behind in. It was enough to do it for myself at first, but that dried up long ago.

I've got several maps close to completion that I lost the motivation to continue as well.... lol. Maybe I'll get all my work out there some day. If you have any questions about UE4 fire away Jack. Though there's more I don't know than what I do know.
