It's a good thing BeyondUnreal still clings to life with bloody fingers, who knows how long it will still linger on. I'm glad for these to be back.

For me, it's throwing an internal error.

A while ago, I have restored a 2017 backup of the wiki contents and hosted it personally. It is available here:

https://unrealwiki.unrealsp.org/index.php/Main_Page

Most of the meat can be found in the Legacy section:

https://unrealwiki.unrealsp.org/index.p ... :Home_Page

You can find detailed info on the endeavor here:

https://www.unrealsp.org/viewtopic.php? ... 219#p77219

2017 is quite a while ago, however virtually (or even literally) nothing has changed in the years since. My mirror is lacking the original theme, but should be more stable overall.

To me, they are down again as well. It seems that beyondunreal has consistent reliability problems. During earlier and extended down times of the beyondunreal dayabase system, I set up mirrors of both sites as well:

These database problems are nothing new. But reports of the problem can go unanswered for a long time.

They're still around. On the UnrealSP backup, you can use the search function, but you need to toggle "Everything" in the search results to see most of the articles.

Uh, for a second I thought it was exactly what I was after but no I don't think UnCodeX was it, it was definitely UnrealWiki.  Unless there are descriptions of each variable, and function on UnCodeX and I am just missing it.  I was looking more specifically for what certain variables\functions do for each class, for instance like if I needed to find what the SetTimer() function might do, it gave some documentation on their usages and how it works.  I also used it for vars that were too vague in description, and it provided more understanding of them without needing to dig deeper into the code.

BUT, this UnCodeX seems useful for me since I might be using notepad++.  So thanks for this, I can throw this up on a second monitor while I am working.

Looks like MediaWiki updated to a software version that does not want to play ball with the php version of the web server.

And now it's the other way around, OU is back and UW is down, lol!

I'm having enough work with adapting the localization project to the new format (and Real Life™), otherwise I would have gladly help with getting the best content into the OU Wiki.

What about to take some missing useful info from UWiki and put it to OUWiki? The UWiki is online now, but it's so unstable and this is unknown how long it can be.

I'm confused why you guys want effort and time put into porting the content onto OUWiki when there's a fully functional secondary wiki (not a HTML crawl, an actual MediaWiki) available in my above post...?

Sorry, I was hurrying and didn't paid enough attention to the topic posts.
