The Author is a property available in all Unreal Engine games in LevelInfo(RTNP, U1, UT, U2, U2XMP, UE2Runtime, UT2003, UT2004) and WorldInfo(UDK, UT3) for Unreal Engine 3 games.


The property is usually used by map browsing menus and/or voting menus and it can be configured from UnrealEd in the LevelProperties window.

The value of the property should be your nickname only or a full name including your nick name in a single quotation mark e.g. Sjoerd 'Hourences' De Jong.

Note: A color tag can be used to colorize your name.


In UT2004 the author is displayed in the map browser menu at the bottom of the specified screenshot of the selected map.
