    Im asking because Pfhoenix recently made the jetpack mutator and cooked it for the PS3 but there is a texture problem its all black with a strange rainbow texture? Do you know why its like that?
    Nope there is really one set process to cook things and if its not working its because there are differences in the code base of course and sometimes all the variables are not resolved it would appear during the conversion so you get stuff that is not quite right to content that won't load at all to content that actually locks up the console. Sorry but this an issue that Epic would have to resolve.

    The obvious correct answer is that if you try to contact a mod/map author, and you receive no reply, than you have no permission. But these things shouldn't have to be explained, it's common sense and it's old news. What's more upsetting is Epic's support of such behavior.
    I'd like this thread to stay on topic so I am asking you nicely to please not stir up trouble on my thread. Please. The purpose of this thread is very very clear so if that is a problem for you I suggest you refrain from posting here. Thank you.

    Well I just recooked it and I am about to go and test it now ... I hope you PS3 folks have some good luck and this works for you. We'll know in about 10-15 mintues as I have a couple of things to take care of first.

    Cold Killer please don't create problems on this thread ... I really would hate to report you so stop it now and if you have issues with me pm me. But if you try to disrupt my thread any further you are not going to be happy with the outcome. I am not even going to waste time replying to your post. I have made my point and you don't even mod as far as I know and you have only been part of this community for a month and there are many things you are not aware of as someone who has never modded or created anything for a game or led a mod team ... so this does not concern you. If you do not have anything positive to add to this thread then you need to stay off of it. I am only giving you this one warning.

    Who died and put you in charge?

    I find it funny that YOUR opinion of two weeks waiting time is some STANDARD that everyone should abide by. What if my opinon is two minutes waiting time or maybe two years? What makes one person right and another wrong? Should it be based on their time spent "investing" into the community?

    The simple answer is NO. Epic and (maybe) the authors hold the rights, so they should be the deciding factor.

    Basically, your attitude toward cooking is not fair for the modders, because it assumes that YOUR opinions are correct because YOU are

    Here is an example of you showing this superiority to others and infering that you know some secret cooking rules that the rest of us have not been given.

    You should remove the link for ShowDamage until he gives you permission. I saw you asked him now you need to wait for his reply. Of course he will likely say yes but you know we have a process that has to be respected.
    Who's process are you refering to? Is this Epics process?

    To help keep UT3 alive in it's early years, I would like you to postpone or terminate this service until Epic sets their own rules for cooking or I would like you to stop complaining to others for the exact same procedure, which you plan on doing. Don't bother telling me that waiting two weeks justifies this action. Remember it's not YOUR content and YOUR opinions don't matter. I am not talking about any content which you have received permission to cook from all of the origional authors.

    OR Have these rules already been stated? Unless you can prove that using the editor to cook Mods without permission is illegal, or if Epic changes their policy, then I'm convienced, based on the below citation, that nobody should need permission. I just want a straight answer. Is it against the terms of use to cook without permission or is it not?

    Quoted from Epics User Agreement:

    i. Your MOds must only work with the full, registered copy of the Software, not indepently or with any other software.

    ii. Your Mods must not contain modifications to any executable file(s).

    iii. Your Mods must not contain any libelous, defamatory, or other illegal material, material that is scandalous or invades the rights of privacy or publicity of any third party, nor may your Mods contain, or be used in conjunction with, any trademarks, copyright-protected work, or other recognizable property of third parties, nor may your Mods be used by you, or anyone else, for any commercial exploitation including, but not limited to advertising or marketing for a company, product or service.

    iv. Your Mods will not be supported by Epic, MIDWAY, our third party tool licensors or any of such parties' affiliates and subsidiaries, and if distributed pursuant to this License, your Mods must include a statement of such effect.

I may cook content first to see if it works but I would not post links to the content (or distribute it in any way) without consent and instead would pass the .JAM file on the the content creator for him to post links to using the service of his choice.
