Cool Unreal 227g Release

If you are interested in the new features, such as AlphaBlending, StaticMeshes, ShadowProjectors etc. have a look into the relase notes:
http://www.oldunreal.com/wiki/index....B05.04.2011.5D...

Overall it contains over 400 fixes and additions compared to the old versions and a lot of work has been invested into UED2.1 development. So the most annoying bugs should be gone now, its more stable and has a lot of new nice features.
Details about UED2.1 are here:http://www.oldunreal.com/wiki/index...._Release_Notes

Remember, we put a hell a lot of work in it and although all involved people gave their best and the relative small number of testers was increased compared to 227f, it's still quite impossible to test any setup or configuration with our small crew.
it will have to show now if we missed something Wink

The 227g patch is now available for both Unreal (Classic) and Unreal Gold / Anthology with full Return to Napali (RTNP/UPak) support.

There is a new complete Russian translation which is included in the patch. Also the Linux version works now with unicode and enables to use the different charsets for the included translations.

I hope for good results and if there is something bothering you, report it in the 227 section: http://www.oldunreal.com/cgi-bin/yab...B.pl?board=227

As previous releases 227g is not (net)compatible with older 227 versions (such as 227e, 227f etc.) to keep the best compatibility to the old original versions 224,225,UGold and to provide the best stability. Also a couple of security issues have been found and fixed so using 227f becomes of now deprecated.

227g re-unites the different Unreal versions, once applied its finally possible to play with Unreal, Unreal Gold and Unreal Anthology in one server, removing the old compatibility issues we had to suffer, caused by the publishers of these versions who were entirely disregarding net compatibility.
The patch can be applied to the Steam versions also and is fully working, but I have no idea how Steam is handling this version then. Reports are welcome.

Server admins who are running 227f should update because of that soon.

When updating you should be aware that this is a full installer again and if you want to keep your old ini settings you need to backup your ini files and update them manually (Unreal.ini and User.ini are being replaced due to new settings).

Also due to the new cache handling (cache search is improved) it is recommended to empty your cache folder if you run into troubles after installation, or at least ensure that there are no System files in the cache like UPak.u if you run Unreal Gold or Anthology.

Have fun!

PS: Be careful with the realtime shadows, they can drain a LOT of performance, even on nowadays machines.

it could only be beaten by news from Epic that they are going to release better Netcode for UT99 along with a long-list of bug fixes..

and/or a total remake of it based on the newer engines
