    I know. 1995 is just suiting your posting habits more.

    You definitely need an active UE game to focus on ... to draw in new blood as the premier news source for that game then hook 'em with forums, frag nights, community resources etc.

    I vote you buy the domain beyondredorchestra.com.

    Just wanted to give some input as a longtime fan of beyondunreal; i miss the links being functional/ linking to current places/ and i also miss the coverage of mods under dev. Covering some of the basics the way you guys did back when should be updated/ simplified...
    sorry if i covered some things another may have covered
    peace

    I've got to say, I really enjoy the higher rate of news stories lately. :)

    Would it be possible for the staff to cobble together a modern tweak guide for the older Unreal titles? Essentially a Unreal HD DIY guide. There's a sticky in the Unreal forums that's nearing 5 years old.

    I'd love to see a feature article that gives a good outline to installing that D3D10 driver, the latest OpenGL driver, and the best hi-res texture/model packs you can find. Any additional mods that provide bugfixes, etc. would be great as well.

    Sounds like a good idea, but one probably best suited to (an) industrious forum user(s) rather than an already overburdened site administrator. A moderator can easily sticky the newer and better one at the time that it actually becomes so.

    The best thing to do is install the 227 patch. It has all the latest junk (other than, perhaps, the D3D 10 renderer) plus a bunch of other nice stuff.

    I've made UT tweak guide a while ago and improved it over time, that should be way more up-to-date than BU's version:

    If I get up to 10,000 posts, can I get a free Ginsu knife set?

    What do I want from Beyond Unreal? Just continue being a prime forum for the discussion of Unreal and Unreal Tournament and please continue to host UT maps and files for download.

    If you guys can solve the nation's debt ceiling problem and bring about world peace that would be great, but if not I'll settle for it's being a good UT forum.

    The biggest problem in those regards is the overall lack of UT players and interest in the game. If a UT99-2 were released and it became a hit, we might get new custom maps, thousands of players, and lots of interest in the game and its custom content again. Maybe a hardcore fan will along and start reviewing maps again.

    I wish it were possible to revitalize a UT99 regular weapons custom map capture-the-flag server. If I had money to burn I'd start up my own server and see if I could make a go of it.

    Start up UT99 FragBU again. Go crazy with the maps and mods. In this day and age, with such great bandwidth and speed, who gives a crap about downloading half a meg of BSP from the server because you don't have it already; it's nothing! :p Just do it imo.

    Also yeah, a bit less news about every single UE game ever and a lot more about what's happening in the corners of the community (I acknowledge that you need people to hunt around for it first though)

    Yeah! Maybe that's what they should do. Start up a UT99 regular weapons custom map CTF server and let me run it. I bet I could get it populated too with all of the various communities I've been associated with and groups I've known.
