    Jesus, Saiboat, what have you created!? Looks awesome dude, all the best with it.

    I'd say it's impossible really to say. I think a lot of people (at the time, myself included) blamed the exodus to UTXMP for U2XMP's decline but of course it's really impossible to say whether it would have happened or not on its own. I think the biggest disappointment in retrospact was really the abandonment of the UTXMP project which disenchanted many and caused them to leave the **XMP community altogether, when perhaps both would have had a longer life had that not occurred.

    All water under the bridge now, I just do my best to keep what remains of U2XMP's legacy alive, and great props to people like Sai who are able to keep the legacy of **XMP alive in a more tangible way with projects like this one.

    EDIT: oh, I thought I was replying to the end of the thread, didn't see the "page 2" there

    Can't believe my stupid map RGB became so popular, while my other maps didn't fair too well, but I don't actually remember if I released them or not. Still have them on my computer somewhere.

    Looks great though. Good luck with the project. Maybe I'll get back in to it one day.

    Small low grav map making it much easier to frag and brag about how we are the best ever? Surprised there were not more maps that way. People love the small maps aswell for some reason....don't need no HUGE map for 8 players aka Demilune but people loved the tiny maps. I never really liked them, i wanna play and move around the map rather then just frag bitches.

    Sounds like a lot of multiplayer; UTXMP included.

    Unfortunately not. Reasons (aka excuses) are real life, uni, work, UT development being unreliable, difficult to devlop a mod in the current state of the pre-alpha, also no work at all on vehicles coming from Epic Games.
    The code for the mod is open sourced on GreatEmerald's GitHub profile:
    https://github.com/GreatEmerald/UT4XMPGameMode
    However, it would take a lot of effort to make it work with the current build of UT.

    Me too buddy. I'm playing TF2, Overwatch, DOOM etc. but nothing really scratches the itch like U2XMP did back in the days.
    We desperately need a large map shooter with vehicles. There's nothing out there at the moment. BF1 meets those cirteria but its more on the realism side of things :(

    EQ² the madman still has the masterserver up and two servers running. The third server is Dusty's from France AFAIK:
    http://ms.aybab2u.com/
    You can allways go to the Steam XMP community group and ask if people are wanting to schedule a session:
    http://steamcommunity.com/groups/xmp

    Let's hope Epic get their act together and continue making progress on the next UT. Maybe when it's done in a couple of years it will be easy to add a quick movement mutator like Aksen did for UT3.

    It says there are 0 servers currently and has been that way for a while, at least for me.

    Maybe you have to update the master server or smth? IIRC EQ²'s installer from http://xmpcommunity.com/ had an option for that in the settings somewhere...

    I mean even on the wesbite I don't see it. I don't have the machine where u2xmp is connected to the internet right now though. But something is wrong with the communication obviously. I don't see any servers and couldn't see even before.

    It's like a block of some kind.
