Controls are different in window and fullscreen, yep. Autoexec.mac is your controls ini file equivalent, as with all the betas. Just find what is wrong in the config and change accordingly.

Leo has released the Dragon and Gargoyle pawns. They were made for the Unreal PSX project but since it's unknown when it'll be ever finished, he released the enemies standalone earlier.

DRAGON: http://unrealtexture.com/Hosted/Leo_T_C ... Dragon.rar
GARGOYLE: http://unrealtexture.com/Hosted/Leo_T_C ... rgoyle.rar


His last find has been Unreal 1995-related

It's another 1995 prototype BUT FINALLY with its UEditor inside.

So, I did some digging around and I found some videos that I thought would look rather interesting to you guys.

That second video has a lot of similarities with the November 1997 build that's out, but there are also differences (especially with how some of the maps don't see to have their lighting rebuilt). It seems like Epic changed quite a few things in a short period of time.

Nice find!

For the record
-first vid is from a late 1996 / early 1997 build (it just says Nov 1997 because that was when the trailer popped up).
-second vid is from a August 1997 build

So I did some more digging and I ended up finding something else, and it's not a video this time.

Behind the Gamespot logo appears to be the HUD from the 1997 Beta, so this both answers and raises a couple questions.
I don't think I have ever seen this pic ever been discussed before, so I thought I'd put it up here to see what you guys have to say.

That looks like Ceremony when it was still a DM map.

Is the sound volume locked in the late 97 beta? I tried changing the value in the .ini, but only Music volume changes. Also, sound effects can only be heard through the left speakers.

By the way, is it possible to change the fov? I tried the fov console command but I get a syntax error in return.
