Newest Release Version. IMPORTANT: Click "Read more" for installation instructions. Enter Unreal Evolution. An all-round upgrade for the singleplayer portion of the 1998 FPS classic "Unreal" (or Unreal Gold). It's an UNREAL Experience. It's a REAL game. If you've played my critically-acclaimed 'GMDX' mod for Deus Ex, you know what to expect; relatively faithful enhancements spanning most aspects of design including Artificial Intelligence, Weaponry, Level Design, Audio Design, Graphics and Art Direction, albeit on a smaller scale.

UNREAL EVOLUTION INSTALLATION
1. Install Unreal, if not already present on your computer.
2. Install the official OldUnreal Patch 227i, if not already present. Copy the following link in your internet browser for this patch: Oldunreal.com
3. Confirm the game works as expected.
4. OPTIONAL: Install recommended graphics mods compatible with (and used in the design of) Unreal Evolution:
5. Now for Unreal Evolution itself: Simply run the .exe installer download found on moddb.com and follow the steps.
A note on compatibility:
****Installation of UE will overwrite your Unreal.ini config file, as well as a number of .int English translation files found in Unreal/System. Backing up the system folder prior to installation is recommended if you'd like to return to vanilla.
Aside from this, UE is not destructive to other files in the Unreal directory. I will work towards a cleaner version in the future.
Q: Is UE compatible with RtNP?
A: UE is compatible with the Unreal singleplayer campaign only. Not Return to Na Pali levels nor Multiplayer.
Q: What versions of Unreal is UE compatible with?
A: UE is compatible with Unreal Gold, either from digital download (Steam, GOG) or Unreal Anthology dic version. It's not compatible with non-gold versions.
Q: Is UE available in [insert language]
A: UE is available in English only, for now at least.
Q: Which renderer should I use?
A: I've found the DX8 renderer to be the most reliable, but your milage may vary. Just don't use software renderer if using the optional texture mods recommended above,
nor the newly released (as of Q1 2020) DX11 renderer, until it has been developed further. It doesn't play nice with Unreal Evolution in its current state.
Q: HELP! I have a crash/bug!
A: Please report all problems on UE's moddb forum or discord. Consider your problem may be related to the original game, not UE, and if so you should check PCGaming wiki.
