Gamespy shutting down & its effect on UT Masterservers

Gamespy shutting down & its effect on UT Masterservers

New postby Fuzz_Ball » Mon Apr 07, 2014 9:42 am

I was reminded of this recently as many players use GameSpy to access my server.
I'm not familiar with how to do this. I've always looked in the list to "Find Internet Games".

Gamespy provided one of the servers for the list of UT servers and will no longer provide that service.

There's been a lot of speculation as to what will happen to the game, so I checked Epic's Forums for some guidance.

Flak, a UT supporter at Epic offered this, so far:

[QUOTE=Flak;31813015]Guys, we'll do what it takes to be sure everyone can still play. We'll have more information about what you need to do in the coming weeks. We've tested the Shambler version of the UT3 master with members of the community and its been working well. We should have it ready to go soon so you can try it out.[/QUOTE]

We can hope their solution includes older "Classic" verisons of UT.

Meanwhile, you can also add 333 Networks' entry into your UT.ini to make use of Darklarious' Master server efforts. Thanks, Darklarious for your efforts to keep UT alive.

It's a major blow to the game but not yet the end of UT

Happy HUMP Day!
Yep, we'll get it sorted out.
333Networks is already on top of it (just in case) and at least 2 other sites may provide 333Network's master for us.
Stay tuned folks! ;)

FYI - Darkelarious's MAIN Discussion Forum for this and his Latest work for this is here...
333Networks Main Discussion Section

New Players? - this is the main problem... :?
We are working on that also... (a patch maybe? - Server side? - and also lots of Advertising to update browsers! - Both!)

Stay Tuned Folks! :thumbup:
