Crystal Castles is down at the URL:
http://www.kdsmedia.com/CC_Pages/Index.html

And KDSMedia.com gives some non-Unreal related site.

Confused Shocked

The official forums for the UT2k4 conversion is here.

http://kds-clan.com/phpbb2/viewforum.php?f=29

Personally, I don't know what happened to the page though. However, we did not even get a honorary mention in the MSU phase 4 so we are not in the finals, for me personally, my career as a ut2k4 mod developer is done and over, I hate ut2k4 and always will. I supported and programmed for it only as long as we were in the MSU.

BOZO has indicated he may add some code, map and stuff for the Unreal One and that he generally may be doing Unreal One work again. So check back later or just ask the same question on the CC UT2k4 forums.

What is MSU anyways?

I can't really understand why people who made so much effort to make such a great mod discontinue it so quickly. (Well, discontinue is probably not the right word, but without a homepage and server 'm afraid CC fades into the darkness of time.)

I wish I had some more bandwidth, then I would host a number of new Unreal servers with gametypes that can not found anywhere else anymore. (And probably a server with some good custom coop maps)

MSU = Make Something Unreal Contest as described at www.unrealtournament2004.com

The "discontinuity" is a personal matter for me. I never liked ut2k4, however, I did enjoy the prospect of working on a fun mod and possibly gain some public recognition. We never expected to win anything, but we were one of the few mods that had really new ideas. Finalists like "Red Orchestra" certainly have better graphics and effects, and overall more mass thanks to bigger teams. But let's face it, the concept is old. Just another polished Infiltration/Serpentine/Tactical Ops/Counter Strike/BF1942/whatever gametype...

Too bad spiritual innovation counts less than a brilliant surface.

We lacked map makers and artists and unlike other teams had serious real life problems and other matters to attend to. Many finalists contain of large teams who partly work on their mods 24/7.

So... with the MSU being done for our team, my personal ut2k4 programming days are done. As soon I am trough with the single player part of the game I will uninstall it and maybe sell it on ebay again. I only bought it so I could use the latest engine compiler anyways. What the rest of the team does with regards to ut2k4 or CC for ut2k4 is up to them.

As I said I am expecting BOZO to resume Unreal One work some time though, where I will again support him, also for CC. If the KDS page doesn't come back I will host it on Oldunreal. Oh and if they really want to do something more for the ut2k4 version I may help out here and there, but Unreal One is what my UScripting is targetting at really...

Didn't see this post before, cause i had the same question, it went off line about 6 to 8 weeks ago.

I would have liked to post that info and logo on our website, didnt have time to ask them, and now its all gone Sad

Any chance to get that story somehow and the Crystal Castle logo in good quality?

Yeah wish more people would think like that, i rather would see an empty Crystal Castle, Unreal4ever, CTF than half a milloin empty Deck16 only servers. Custom COOP maps, no my personal wish would be to see a server with Bonekeepers maps only, invis on Smile

Total agreement there Hyper.

Which would be great Smile if you do so.

Though I still would like to have that material too, and especially the logo for the tech and install and info page about Crystal Castle, as said i was about to go ask anyway............

I guess another wish would be that Epic would rerelease Unreal.


ID does that with no problems, like they rereleased Doom 1 and 2 before Doom 3 was released.

Seems Epic doesnt understand that people would like that and that it in no way it would harm their new releases. I am convinced that that would bring hundreds if not few thousend new (read old) players back in the game, so often i hear peep just lost their copy of Unreal and can't get it anywhere.

We sure picked the wrong company to invent Unreal Sad



Lol, maybe they do understand............And realize Unreal still beats the crap out of all their new Unreal versions Twisted Evil



In time we will prob go sell Unreal from our site for like 5 dollars including shipment. And yeah i would like to offer a direct download too..............
