This is not an official action by any of the original staff at BeyondUnreal.

BeyondUnreal's Unreal Wiki has been a pillar of the Unreal/UT99 modding community, hosting a wealth of community-contributed tutorials, explanations, tips and tricks on how to get the most out of the Unreal Editor. However, as of recent time it has been lost, and is no longer available under the usual address.

I took the liberty of hosting a November 2017 data dump of the wiki found on archive.org. It was seemingly made by an exporter tool that only a wiki administrator would have access to, and contains all articles, pages and files as of November 2017.

I was able to import the data in a fresh installation of MediaWiki, meaning that the Unreal Wiki is now available on UnrealSP.org:

Unreal Wiki @ UnrealSP.org

For now, I am keeping registration and editing disabled and maintaining it as an "archive" of sorts. Moderating user contributions is not something I can take upon myself. However, I am open to volunteers who wish to contribute or manage the wiki. Simply write me a DM in that case, or contact me on Discord.

Enjoy!

(If you are the original proprietor of the wiki, or the author of some of its content, and you have an issue with this re-hosting, also contact me directly.)

Thanks medor. I checked out the archives. Feralidragon had linked these to me as well.

Unfortunately these are crawls/offline pages, not MediaWiki export files, so they cannot be imported into a functioning MediaWiki installation. It's safe to say that there wasn't much activity worth mentioning in that timeframe, anyway, so this should be sufficient.

As a quick note I forgot to drop here, the original BU Unreal Wiki is back online. I'll keep this one online just in case anything happens again.
