Funny moments in Unreal!

Post by VooDoo-(DOG)- »

 
Well we can all take the game too seriously sometimes, so I thought it would be interesting to start a thread about "Unreal Funny Moments". Preferably based on an in-game experience. Here's mine :-

I was playing Nali Castle last Christmas and having killed the GiantGasbag, I tried the usual trick of jumping out of the little window to the water below, to get to the bottom area where the decapitated Nali head is in a bucket, in order to end the map.
However I had forgotten that I was playing Nikola-(DOG)-'s Christmas version of Nali Castle and splattered myself to pieces on the solid ice. I only realised my mistake in the last second of flight. :)

WOOF!

lol xD

I can't think of any funny moments offhand...
Except for the first time a tentacle landed on my head giving me a "tentacle hat". I had never seen it before, and I behindview'd to see what was happening, and I thought it was hilarious :P

Ah yes that's a good one Andre and one that everybody has probably experienced. But the first time it happens is the best!

WOOF!

You can get much more hats than of tentacle but of course that happens most often. I got pupae hats, skaarj hats, player hats even.

Then there's...

I don't know anymore right now. There are some genuinly funny situations, usually screenshots can capture some, like that skaarj that got mangled so much on the aztec wooden bridge. He had completely warped out face and all. Or the times on white wolf coop server when we used tons of those "marinewolfs" following us or him playing the voice messages, summoning random stuff, you get the idea. Such situations just happen spontaniously.

Or yea when codex made a potato masher using dampeners or bee baskets using sludgebarrels, resized in all kind of ways. Ton of improvisation.
EDIT: Or the times when my cousin put titans in a lava in nalic and putting stuff into skyboxes together.

I was 10 and my friend was 12, and we wanted to convince his mum that Unreal was not a violent game, so we ghosted to a daytime skybox and summoned nali rabbits and stuff, and pretended it was a peaceful "heaven" xD

Yea, some people can just play Unreal simply for summoning or monster infighting by dropping other monsters on their head.

No other game has it as easy.

Do you have a screenshot of that? I can't quite picture what you mean or how to recreate it.

WOOF!

Nice one! Is this an extremely hard situation to reproduce or is it easy to recreate?

Thanks!

That's not brightened a little, over here it looks like being washed with a bleach! xD

Well, it was just random, only ever got this once to be honest. It's that particular spot, I guess the bsp hole did part of it, so getting skaarjscouts around bsp holes like these might help trying to reproduce. Also this was on classic Unreal, not the OU patches, so it might be even more difficult there. But for a long time past 220 Unreal always had these strange issues with lod meshes, like the famous skaarjsnipers being "squared" bug and bots when they get a stuck animation and then get "disfigured".

LOL! Well over here the original looked darker than a cave-bat's bedroom and the bat had forgotten to pay its electricity bill.
Funny thing is I only brightened by it 10 (max 255)!

Maybe you were a cat in a previous life and are ultra-sensitive to light, or I am that cave-bat that could hardly see it all.

Was this on the "Aztec" map or the Aztec-Leo map?

WOOF!

Well, technically speaking, it depends on the settings of your screen as well, the one I'm using for this gives enough light, the other one not so much.

But perhaps you're right, however it's not me that's the cat, if there's anyone who's the cat it's my bf and he actually took the screenshot itself.

But really it all depends on gamma correction levels and all that. There is a natural brightness and then there's the other one where you can see shadows being "washed out".

I believe it was on Zora's map, not the aztec leo map or the l97aztec.

Or aztec5 conversion. - aztec5 being the very old august 1997 map. But it's not that.

Well, my friend was extremely talented at pushin' afkin' players into the lava.
I remember not lookin' to the monitor only for a minute only to find myself floatin' in lava.

Epsilon here!

I remember one funny moment, which was at Christmas at your time, and we were in your server.
You made me admin for fun, and I had to try to make a "Skaarj" Rebel look very thin.
The result was fantastic! :lol: :lol: :lol:
