Does the use of UT4 require the use of middleware or is it a part of the UT4 package?
IE: Crytek SC will include all other middleware that may be needed to utilize the engine:
Crytek includes the FMOD sound library and tools at no additional cost, as well as the Scaleform Gfx Library and tools.
Crytek does not include the following:
• Scaleform Video Middleware (which is used for video decoding and playback;
• Annosoft’s Lip-sync SDK (used for driving character’s mouth and jaw animation);
• GameSpy (online matchmaking service) - as these must be licensed directly from their respective companies, if required.
• The XTREME Toolkit Pro MFC class library must be acquired separately in order to rebuild the Sandbox Editor.
The MAX SDK must also be purchased from Autodesk in order to rebuild the CryExport plugin.
If there is middleware required to run (as in actually be able to launch a full functioning game) UT4 what is it? What does it cost? Can you please provide links?
Also, I heard there was a c# fork being made for UT4, is this true? Links?
Any help provided would be greatly appreciated.
