The Unreal Engine is what got me into game development. I’ve been working with it since the original Unreal was released in 1998. However, doing anything interesting graphically in UE3 without source access was a pain at best, so I moved on. First to XNA, then to Unity.
I’m looking forward to giving UE4 a try in the future, but I’ll need a new video card first. I’m using a 6 year old computer and all of my code is written for DirectX 9.0c, two whole versions behind what UE4 (I think) requires.
Thinking about this question has made me realize that I’ve been using the Unreal Engine longer than some of my followers have been alive. How did I get old? How did this happen?
