As you may have heard, Gamespy is shutting down this weekend. We want to be sure you’re still able to play Unreal Tournament 3 Multiplayer. Thanks to community member Shambler, we have a patch that will allow you to continue playing. We also want to thank all of the server admins and other community members who have helped test the patch to be sure it’s ready to go. (We’re looking at you Bubbaxm2, the nOx guys and Hedsteem!)
If you have any questions, please join in the conversation over at the Epic Forums: https://forums.epicgames.com/threads/986045-Gamespy-Patch-Info
IMPORTANT TECHNICAL STUFFS: This “patch” is actually a replacement executable that will direct you to the new Unreal Tournament 3 master server which we have moved to the Epic Games server bank along with the Unreal Tournament 99 and Unreal Tournament 2004 servers.
In Windows, navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Unreal Tournament 3\Binaries and simply drag and drop the new UT3.exe into this folder. When the screen pops up asking what to do, select move and replace. This will replace the old .exe file with the new one. You will now be directed to the new master server when you start your game.
This patch will also work with the Steam version of the game. You will need to navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Unreal Tournament 3\Binaries, or just search for your Unreal Tournament 3\Binaries folder and replace the UT3.exe file with the new one.
In Unreal Tournament 3, you will need to recreate your user name on the new master server. We are very sorry for this inconvenience, but all currently registered names will go away along with Gamespy. You can use the same names as before and even the same passwords, you just need to have them registered on the new server now instead of Gamespy.
This will also apply to servers! This will apply to servers as well, they will need to have the new .exe and all Gamespy usernames will need to be recreated or replaced in the command line as well. The larger server providers should be able to handle this for you but please contact your provider if you are unsure. In the event that you run your own server on your own box, you will need to patch this as well. There is a separate patch for servers.
