Unreal Tournament is the sucessor to the awesome game that was Unreal. Boosting the most advanced gaming engine when it was released, this game kicks some serious arse. Unreal Tournament's got it all without a doubt: ton's of amazing levels, kick-ass weapons, brain-melting modes of play, unbelievably deadly bots, and a slew of other features bound to have your happiness glands working overtime! I have not even mentioned the mod's either, and boy are they bountiful and bloody brilliant, with titles such as Strike Force. So give this game and spin, then crank up a few of it's mods and you will be wondering how you lived without this game!
Ver 3 is out- This HD texture pack completes the Unreal Retexturing Project. Now ALL the textures have been remade in HD and have been through several rounds of improvements. Experience the classic 1998 3D shooter in stunning high definition like never before!
Version 2.5 is an update to the v2x textures. All of the Unreal Tournament specific textures found in v3 are now added, as well as the improvements to the Unreal 1 textures. The files sizes have been reduced in some cases, i.e. there are no 4k textures, and some 2K textures are now 1K. There have also been improvements made to online server compatibility. The UT 2nd CD S3TC textures are not needed when using this pack.

Other optional versions of this HD pack are found there: HD4K Extreme Resolution Edition v3 for the Direct X 11 renderer
Also the S3TC Techdemo Betatextures, an HD pack that features all of the earliest HD textures by Epic and Diehard unaltered, many of which were replaced in the v2 and v3 pack. Any missing textures are now filled in from the v3 pack.
This release by AHaigh01 replaces and updates the previous Unreal HD textures that have been around for over a decade by DieHardSCWS. Also known as the Unreal Retexturing Project. It was last updated in 2015. The URP was never more than about halfway complete and many texture themes were not HD at all. This shortcoming has been fully addressed in my release. DieHard's textures are included in this release and in some cases have been further enhanced. All unfinished textures have now been made HD as well by me.
HD skins for monsters, weapons, pickups and decorations are not covered by this pack
For a complete HD Unreal experience use this HD pack with the HD Skins mod By Lightning Hunter
Installation \ Configuration
Patch UT to at least 436 and use an updated renderer such as:
Enhanced OpenGL renderer for Unreal Tournament
Or the new DirectX11 renderer:
Warning- never use these textures on a server or when mapping.
In short, there are only 2 things needed to upgrade the textures to HD.
Overwrite the original .UTX files with the new ones
Have “use S3TC=TRUE” in the renderer preferences.
Download the version of these textures for Unreal227 or UT99 depending on what you are going to use. If you are not going to be playing on servers at all, the different versions are actually interchangeable. Having the right version installed is required by most servers however or you will get a version mismatch error. (This is not the case with the newer DX11 only releases)
Also in Advanced options set Rendering - VolumetricLighting to true for your renderer. This turns on fog effects
-Epic Games - they created a relatively small number of HD textures that came on UT99 disc 2. And of course all of the original textures...
-Diehard SCWS- created a huge number of textures included here.
-AHaigh01 -thats me.
-Lightning Hunter- For lots of advice and consultation throughout the creation process of this HD pack, and finding many errors. He also contributed his texturing skills to:
