I know this will be probably useless but I might as well try it to gather more attention.

There was once a leak of Unreal supposedly a 1996 version, on geocities, still seen on archived sites like
http://geocities.ws/mhouy/warez.htm

Except that unreal beta was hosted offsite and I did my research and found out who one of the uploaders was, but I couldn't reach him, all his colleagues had last contact more than 10 years ago. So I couldn't get it from him.

Then there is the case of the child3 beta, suddenly a mysterious track called child3 popped up on youtube and somewhere else among unreal tracks as part of some complete unreal music. This beta or even iso was floating around on some russian forums that no longer exist or so I've heard. It might be that the '96' version and this beta are one and the same and that some accounts of people are just plain wrong but we don't know....

So this is my request. If someone doesn't want to share this in public, I do have some items to offer for exchange. I have been after this beta already since 2012 or so. It's also probably the only thing that can help opening the circle map by Ty Halderman (died in 2015 before I knew of his involvement so I didn't contact him).

It is necessary to have this in order to rescue/restore this content.

It's possible that the track is from a lost 1996 build of Unreal, but is there evidence that it was? The tracker file itself is called 'child3.s3m' and it's been present on the Mod Archive site at least 2005, so it's not like the uploader of that video was the first to have this song anyway. I also found this file on another site, with a number of other Alexander Brandon tracks seemingly not composed for Unreal.

(Also sorry if this doesn't belong here, mods/admins)

There kind of is, it appears independantly on another site putting it within Unreal songs as I said.
Don't have the link right now but I saw it. It did appear on mod archive but in 2003 uploaded by someone who might have had it from that beta of Unreal. I myself didn't see it outside of that context so far.
There is "child2" as part of some larger thing but not child3, unless we saw different stuff. I didn't see child3 being part of any of those, so if you really saw child3 and not child2 please try to link that.
