    Hello again, everyone. I'm looking for conversions of DC and PS2 exclusive maps for Unreal Tournament. Did anyone make a conversion of at least one single map? How about we combine forces and try to put as much of these maps as possible in a map pack to make all UT players happier?

    Deathmatch Exclusives:

    Halberd
    Nebula
    Blockparty
    Canyonfear
    ColdSteelPressure
    Damnation
    Depot
    Dust
    Flux
    Gearbox
    Girder
    Google
    Industrial
    Infernal
    Instinct
    Megaplex
    Neotokyo
    Outskirts
    Paladin
    Pantheon
    Sector9
    Singularity
    Section Control
    Underlord

    Other exclusives:

    DOM-Osiris
    CTF-Sepuichre
    CTF-Sundial
    CTF-Spirito
    CTF-Stormfront

    Already converted:

    - DrunKenobi:

    Brickyard
    Core
    Loathing
    Sorayama
    Coagulate
    Hood

    - DavidM

    Extortion
    Ablee
    Melnori

    They do, but even if you unpack the UMD file, you will find that maps come as *.lin files (basically: Unreal Championship vs UT2003 has the same problem). In other words either one converts a *.lin file into *.unr file (I don't know how) or by walking through the map on the console one rebuilds it from scratch in UnrealEd. Sorry, but I see no other way. PS. some exclusives, like Flux or Stormfront made it to PC UT2003, but I (not only me) want to play them on UT'99. Anyway, thanks for such a quick reply.

    Thanks. 5 completely down, 4 halfway down (need to be converted to Domination unless they have the control points). Any more? Come on, people! Let's do this!

    Yes DavidM did make a lowPolyPack. The maps were intended for the PS2 but he didn't meet the deadline.

    Anyway we will include them in the Console Bonus Pack. The Console Bonus Pack shall also include Retro skin and the beta version of Liandri map that was in the beta release of UT. We'll bake some more cakes in this single oven.

    interesting , if i got the time , i will convert a few of them .

    i slightly remember that pretty nice temple map in a cave , maybe pantheon or paladin .. dunno the name .

    will have to replay a few of them and build them from scratch , must be fast due to the simplicity of the maps

    Edit : hmm , do you know the name of the mappers for each maps ? because i dont think i will put all credits to myself , lol

    Hmmm... Isn't the author's name displayed under the map name just like in PC version? Besides, if you don't know, you could just type: Epic Games, rebuilt by Derdak2rot. Anyway, thanks for your activity, Derdak - I'm quite sure the community will be pretty happy when the pack is finally released. Only XBox exclusives for UT2004/2003 (XB: Championship 2/Championship - funny how Epic tries to make us think that Championship is an all-original game) will remain. Not for long though - people like you or DrunKenobi give us hope to see "console exclusives" lose their exclusivity...

    The Lowpoly Pack sucked... There was this one map in which you could fall in the lava and not even die....

    Yes Ablee from the LowPolyPack has the "Lava of life" and can be very frustrating. But Melnori is a decent map though and I think the best in the pack. Extortion can be a frustrating experience with too mant bots of high difficulty level.;) But for people with old /slow PCs these maps are fine. A friend of mine still plays UT on a PIII 500 MHZ so being able to have 4-6 bots in a match and get over 50FPS with his crappola video card is great to him.:lol:

    Boy, this sure sounds like a great idea to have all the console exclusive maps transferred over to the PC version. If I was more knowledgable about the map editor, I'd do anything to help contribute to this cause. Geez, I truly miss those UT days on the Dreamcast.
