    June.... the time when young mens minds turn to.... MAPPING!

    Well better late than never I quess.

    My question would be, does Buzz make any money on copies sold? Even though I have spent countless hours on UT3, and like others, could almost write my own book. I will buy if it is going make buzz some money, otherwise maybe no.

    I wonder, Buzz can we get a copy of the index? To see what the contents will be?

    Thanks,
    Tranz

    Dang it! Although I never actually produced a finished level (I'm a hobbyist), but I really enjoyed the last book. I learned so much about level design. I worked trough the 2004 VTMs for a few months, and I loved them. I've had many level designs kicking around in my head since I bought the game. I did buy the UT3 version w/ the VTMs, but haven't had time for them yet. I look forward to the day that I can have the books around as a more convenient and detailed reference (you can't put a post-it in a VTM).

    In fairness, I haven't really had time to build anything, so I'm not being held up by this. However, I do feel for people like the other Seattle area guy who is looking for a leg-up for job hunting.

    I just checked Amazon again and now it says June 16th for the first book and July 7th for the second.

    This is getting pretty ridiculous, I hope those dates are just guesses.

    You can never tell with Amazon. I received the game from them about 2 weeks before they said they would have it in stock.

    2 weeks isn't really a bad margin for error.

    Hey buzz, if the books are already done and up on the UDN. Is there any chance of making and online version available now that we can pay for. It's really gonna suck to have to wait so long. I'd gladly pay for access to that.

    I so wish I could say yes. Unfortunately, Sam Publishing is not going to do it that way.

    most programs have some kind of a built in help, a link to a Manual....someOnlineSomeOffline....where is this for Unreal3?. ( it takes me to a place with a searchHole where most common words like kismet arent recognised by the searchEngine ("No matches were found for 'kismet'").....Now, Idont mind readingPDFs....amI missing something?....most of the wiki system is for unreal2.......

    whats going on here? are the people too greedy to share lousyPDF manuals?
