The Unreal Tournament SDK is a collection of hardcoded Engine Enhancements for Unreal Tournament that aims to update that wonderful old game so that both gamers and level designers/mod developers may enjoy this fine game just a bit longer. It is completely Open Source, free for noncommercial use and based on Chris Dohnals custom driver and the latest UT 469 Patch.


While I know that Unreal Engine 4 and 5 are the current state of the art incarnation of the Unreal Engine this project has become a more or less private project "just for fun", and for personal educational and art purposes. After a 5 years break, I'm continuing this project and will release the next huge update in December 2020. So yes... it's active again, after I had a time of hardship these last years until 2016.


Current Version: January 2013 UTSDKBeta (Build 500), 30.01.2013

Next Release: May 2021 UTSDKBeta, End of May 2021 (Planned and subject to change: due to major difficulties adapting and updating legacy code to community patch UT 469a/b)

UTSDK January 2013 Release

UTSDK January 2013 Release


Hey everyone! I can now finally present a new version of the UT Community SDK. After weeks and months of delay I finally got together what I wanted to. The road to success had so many obstacles in especially the last few weeks. One bug was removed another popped up!

UTSDK November Beta Preview 18 (Final Map Shots) UTSDK November Beta Preview 17 (Final Map Shots)

But now I can deliver the first release with a testing environment. Yes... no simple framework without any possibility to test things anymore! When you remember the news post back in November 2012 I was still trying to some stuff ... well I think the majority of these features really made it into the release.


Highlights

  • Bounding Volume Support
  • new Emitter type (SubUV Emitter)
  • improved Interpolation System (supports smooth interpolation of float, vector, rotator and colors)
  • extended Post Processing Support (cross-fade support, new Blend Modes etc.)
  • completely new GUI/menu system!
  • tons of new UnrealED / UnrealScript functions
  • new Static Mesh Features (changeable U/V Settings, dynamic color)
  • updated OpenGL Driver
  • dozens of fixes here and there
  • a lot of new example content and ready-to-use classes (be surprised!)
  • partially revamped weapons
  • Showcase / Test environment

Since this is a huge leap forward, because it's the first release to actively show what can be done, I suggest you make yourself familiar with the possibility to discuss, bug hunt or report about whatever concerns the UTSDK at the forums of ut99.org!

Yessi yes! Thank you very much :)

However, I have huge problems adapting my legacy code of the previous release to the new 469a Patch, which is the main reason for the recent delays. Hope to release a fresh version at the end of March. Been rebuilding the 3D pipeline currently.

Hey jdzero! Thank you for asking. Yes I'm still working on it as I need it as a framework for a new total conversion mod and an Unreal Engine 4 game I'm developing, backed up by a small team. End of december will be the first release in like 7 years..

Hellow!
SDK is very easy to use! Great work!!!
And if the opportunity to write third-party toolkit editor? In UT3 very convenient work with geometry, practical as in 3D package. Can this be implemented here?

Greetings and thank you.

Hmm I thought about coding an "external" Editor but that would be one hell of an effort.. so I'll stick with in-Editor enhancements. What do you mean with the UT3 part?

I just installed the January build into my UT99. But every time I load a level, it crashed, something about the sdkLevelInfo

Critical: Failed to find function ZoneChange in sdkLevelInfo DM-Oblivion.sdkLevelInfo2

How to use this? I really can't figure it out. The only difference I saw in my game is a new gamemode call 'Game'... Is that it?

They're many documents in the download file. First read those that deal with the setup and installation instructions. Once it is set up you decide for yourself what to use and what not. It's not like a mutator that instantly changes everything. It's a toolset.

I must admit that the installation is quite a bit difficult, but this will have an end with the august build, because it uses a setup file and auto-ini entries.
