Mirror's Edge Editor... Found?

    Several people on the official Mirror's Edge community forums (well, maybe official...) have found a clever way to get UnrealEd for Mirror's Edge enabled. Pirating a few files from their UT3 Binaries folder, they were able to get the editor up and running and have even released a few custom maps! Pretty cool!

    If you want to do it manually, just copy the wxRC and wxRes folders from your UT3\Binaries folder into your Mirror's Edge\Binaries folder and then run "MirrorsEdge.exe editor" like other UE3 based games.

    It made me curious if any other UE3 games could have UnrealEd enabled so easily, so I'll be trying a few others out myself. Have you gotten this to work on other UE3 games? Have a Mirror's Edge map you'd like to share? Let us know in the comments!

    What the ****! That's insane lmao. :D
    But really, does it work like it should? Do you have access to critical gameplay actors, and kismet nodes?


    I wonder if people can do that with Vegas 2? They have some really dumb stuff going on, like if you add a the "-editor" shortcut to the game executable, it tells you fatal error, and to contact some local ubisoft staff with his name displayed. :lol:

    From reading a few things, it sounds like it's a little buggy (apparently PIE can be a little borked on the retail version), but you can make maps with it and Kismet actors all seem to be in place.

    I'll have to try this out if I get the game on my HDD, many thanks for the heads up Brizz (and the person who may have send this out). I'm still curious to see if it applies to other UE3 games not including an editor.

    lol, that shouldn't work, but it's an awesome find. Someone didn't strip the editor properly, haha.

    Just a matter of time before someone makes a "very unofficial" UE3 editor package for all the UE3 games out there :D

    I know that UT3 is the "trial version" of the engine but still :lol:

    Yeah, general protection faults for files not found in all of them.

    Probably wouldn't work, but there's no harm in trying. Just back up the folders you replace first (if they exist), naturally.

    Bioshock has a really strange folder structure.

    And of course you don't have access to Ambient Occlusion when I think about it now?
