    [​IMG] There has long been an outcry for a return to Unreal Tournament's simple and effective user-interface and SolidSnake is answering the call for Unreal Tournament 3 players. Currently under development, a final release is slated for June 26.

    I remember talking to SolidSnake about this on #beyondunreal some months ago. I was just yesterday wondering how it was coming along. This looks terrific! I hope modders use it.


    ... maybe for a new voting system...

    If it turns out well then Epic should buy it and add it officially into UT3. It's like a fresh breath of air.

    AFAIK, it is indeed UWindows.

    After all, we're not on "Window XP" and "Window Vista" are we? :p

    it would make ut3 looking totally different in some cases. does it has the orginal sounds from ut? (at menu-actions and closing/opening windows)

    This is how it should have been right from the start.

    Snake has done a great job, but there are still some roadblocks I think as far as making it truly a full replacement UI. From what he has said you cannot use it online, the game will revert to its own packages or you will run into security issues.. as far as I can see the only way around that would be if Epic included the UI in a future bonus pack...

    The way UT3 SHOULD have shipped in the first Goddamn place. That is incredible.

    Great idea, but...

    That sucks a lot. I'd put money on Epic not doing the smart thing and including this in the game as part of a BP.

    My faith has dropped to zero on Epic even knowing what the right thing even is any more, let alone them actually doing it.
