Unreal Tournament 2004 Machinima Movie
we are many walking down the dry riverbed...
but let me tell you
about the one
who suddenly broke away
to discover what lies
beyond the hills
that rule our lives..."
is a non-interactive movie, just like a Cut-Scene in a video game.
It took about three months from scratch to finish and was first uploaded in January 2004.
There have been two
refinements since for the "Make Something Unreal" Contest
by Epic Games.
should I download?
you own a copy of UnrealTournament 2004 on Windows and want to watch
the movie in realtime on your screen, go download the uMod Installer
of the „Grand Finals Version“. If you have already
installed a previous Version of „The Journey“, you only
need to download the „Grand Finals Patch“ and
I would suggest to uninstall older versions and
redownload the full version if you have a broadband connection. The
performance improvements don't work for the Patched version as the
most significant changes have been made to the texture packages.
If for some reason the „uMod Installer“ files do
not work for you, just download the appropriate "ZIP Archive"
file and extract it to your UT2004 base directory.
If you do
not own a copy of Unreal Tournament 2004 on Windows, you can
download the „zipped Quicktime“ version which requires
the free Quicktime
Player 6 from Apple.
Note: if you are using the Linux or Mac version
of Unreal2004, please download the additional Linux/Mac Patch and install it.
As both of these systems use OpenGL rendering, you should expect a slight loss
of performance and visual quality. Sorry about that.
