If you are going to use a nali follow path in your map, make sure that there is a "secondary" option available for the player.


Or, have it as a "ghost" Nali that can come to no harm.

Alternatively, the MakeNaliFriendly actor can serve to mitigate this problem somewhat, but even so it's a better idea to provide a secondary route.

Why do the old screens get deleted when a map pack is re-reviewed?


It's not compulsory, but the old screenshots are often quite poor quality (particularly where lighting is concerned). Most reviewers choose to provide new screenies; I guess it makes the page feel a bit fresher.

Examples of re-reviews to re-use the existing screenies are ONP (?), The Elder (?), Hexephet, Hollow, The Invasion, New Alcatraz, Valley of Alshar, and probably a number of others.

Just started playing this in Oldskool (wtf) and already have a few things to add. Personally I think the lighting in the level is a tad on the dark side in some places, especailly around the starting area. I had to yank my brightness right up to see where to go to grab the searchlight! Also the Nali "bunny" is a baby cow, but I guess Proph knew that already.

Thats all good, but wouldn't it be possible to keep the old screens AND the new screens? More screens would give a greater idea of the maps visuals overall.
Of course, this whole thing that i am debating is extremely trivial, and i really don't care either way, but i still wonder why the original review becomes limited to text only once it becomes a second opinion.

still, tis a good review proph

The download link at the bottom of the review is dead:

The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/1.3.39 Server at unrealspvault.org Port 80


the URL was: http://www.unrealspvault.org/index.php? ... lecatid=19

You may want to update the link or fix the server.

Yeah, I know it is down for some time. My point is, why link to a file that is not there. Maybe it is better to remove the link, or link to alternate source.

If it were a completely new review page I would have done so. As ever, I was probably working in a hurry.
