UT3 Epic Coder Sense of humor
Reply With Quote


Those guys have SOME sense of humor. After downloading the official source rar file (over here: http://udn.epicgames.com/Files/UT3/M...Source_1.1.rar)

I found this wonderful enum in UTTypes.uc:

Code:
enum EUTChapterType
{
	UTCT_JimBrownNeedsToSendMartinEmailWithTheChapterNames,
	UTCT_SoWeCanRockThisUpYo,
};
Hah!

I like seeing stuff like "will fix this later" in 2004 comments.

If only, instead of humour, they had some coding skills...

You seem to imply that they don't. Let me know when you finish UT4.

What they DON'T have is a manager who knew when "release worthy" was and when it wasn't. They surely have no lack of coding skill to have written the engine and system they wrote.

How can we work some $ symbols into Epic's name? They can be the new mikkkro$haft! I love me some unfounded criticism.

I hate when people say "M$" just as much, but unfortunately, UT3 is starting to reek of some suit in a corporate office somewhere going "release it in time for the holiday shopping. We don't need the rest of those features, put them in the first patch, but I want it on shelves by black friday!"

I mean come on, no NAT support and no Favorites tab? It's like the release was the beta, and it's either some manager forcing the release or like Q was saying, they wanted to use the PC players as guinea pigs to test stuff out on before the console release.

Either way, they screwed the pooch on the release, but people who are hurling insults like "they need to learn how to program" are only showing a lack of understanding of just how much knowledge and programming ability it takes to write something like the Unreal Engine.

A'ight... but no matter how good-looking and efficient an engine is, it doesn't make a game by itself. And I doubt a manager alone can fix that...

My point was that the fact that marketing/management botched the release of the game does not imply a lack of programming talent or ability in their development staff.

Well, they sure do lack serious testers tho... Edit: (kinda more related to UT2k4's history)

QA for UI elements and common features (NAT support) seemed pretty lacking - but most specifically for UI related stuff. Whoever was in charge of the UI design itself failed miserably, and/or got railroaded by management into cutting some very basic features in order to ship on time.

To be frank, isn't this what happened with UT03? So if I'm not mistaken, someone will end up releasing UT08 and give a voucher to refund their copy of UT3. I dunno, I'm just throwing some speculation and random ideas out there.
