Can't login in UT3 (SOLVED]

Post by Terraniux » Sun Jan 08, 2017 10:31 pm

I love UT99 but I also like the other series of UT.
Last week I reinstalled UT3 and applied patch 1,2,3,4,5 and the gamespy fix,

yet I can not connect to the online services. :???:

Do I miss a certain patch, or is the server down.... been 2 weeks now.

Some help would be much appreciated. :thuup:

Thread moved to off-topic, I think you know why :P

No idea about this problem, never tried ut3.

I never played UT3 but more often than not when I hear anyone talking about it seems most folks didn't love it.

It's like the least-liked of the whole UT series.

Are you sure the online services for it still exist?

Why wouldn't it be?


I enjoy UT3 as much I do as the other versions. Especially warfare and the titan mod. :twisted:

I did a search the other day to see if I could find any UT3 forums, but came up with bupkiss. They're either mostly gone, dead, or just a sub-category on some 1st-person shooter forum.

Maybe try asking here · https://www.epicgames.com/unrealtournament/forums/

That is the official UT forum, after all. Bound to be other fans of UT3 there who might know how to fix your issue.

It even has a semi-active UT3 section · https://www.epicgames.com/unrealtournam ... urnament-3

Type in console "open dm-shangrila" or any map you know. The command will load the map and then you can go back to main menu.

Note that I tried this in UT3 Demo only. Never played the full version.

Don't know if it is of any use or relevance but GameTracker shows 70 UT3 servers, of which 7 are populated at the moment.

I will try that. Thanks

Yes it does help.

Then the services Is online. What should I check? virusscanner? Windows firewall? Where do I start?
Or is there a simple update / patch I'm missing?

I can only suggest you try posting your question at Epic's UT3 forum - https://www.epicgames.com/unrealtournam ... urnament-3 - and/or have a look through it to see if anyone has asked/answered your question. It does actually seem pretty active, as much as the UT99 one.

Do you mean that your login request to any server is rejected or don't you see a server list at all? If last: I guess there is at least one list maintaining server that receives heart beats from game servers. Clients can ask that list maintaining server for its servers list, but of course the clients must know the list maintaining server's address. Have a look in the INI files for its definition; for example here it is
XBrowser.ini wrote: [XBrowser.XBrowserTabInternet]
MasterServer[0]=XBrowser.XBrowserFactInternet,MasterServerAddress=utmaster.epicgames.com,MasterServerTCPPort=28900,Region=0,GameName=ut
MasterServer[1]=XBrowser.XBrowserFactInternet,MasterServerAddress=333networks.com,MasterServerTCPPort=28900,Region=0,GameName=ut
...
Then identify the list maintaining server's host addresses and see if they are still defined ("nslookup hostaddress") and answering requests ("telnet hostaddress portaddress"). If both fails, a G00gle search for the hostaddress may gain more information.
<EDIT>
The topic About 50% of the servers do not show up (esp. post #11) may be also of interest.

That topic with 50% servers bla bla I'm not sure if is that relevant, I had always listed around 600+ UT Servers - a configuration problem is not service's fault.
Else, depending on person, if area has been black listed in a firewall, then cya later, or if a personal firewall/antivirus is doing sh!te then happily get rid of them. Panda was one of those bugging me in the past - as a true example...

It means , that when I startup the game, it ask for a login. Either offline or online. I have my username and pw written down so that is correct.

Even when I hit the button ' create new profile ' I get this message.

- see attachment -

I disabled my virusscanner and such. Maybe trying updating the masterserver list.


If nothing helps I'll post my situations at the epic games forums indeed.

Previous years I was playing just fine, no errors at all.

Re: Can't login in UT3 (solved)

Post by Terraniux » Thu Jan 12, 2017 4:56 pm

SOLVED. :D

After some browsing on the epic games forum I found this :

https://forums.epicgames.com/showthread ... Patch-Info

It seems that I applied the wrong patch / not fuly updated the game at all. There was a earlier lossless .exe ( which I applied ) and after that, there was an official patch brought out I totally missed.


I got it working now. Thanks all for the help.
