Masterserver update

I see a few posts here with masterserver issues, so I thought I should start a thread.

Epic are running 2 older masterservers with the names;
unreal.epicgames.com
utmaster.epicgames.com

Both are hosted on the same server, so if 1 is down the other is also likely to be down

The 333masterservers are hosted in several locations around the world.
UT and total mods can make use of multiple masters, so it is wise to use one of Epics and one or more of ours.

Qtracker and Telefragged are still used for uplink heartbeats, so should be kept.

Update your UT, Default and Thievery ini files (and Xbrowser if you use it) by replacing "master0.gamespy.com" with "master.333networks.com"

See http://master.333networks.com/about for more details.

We are now the official provider of Masterserver service and software for a few games companies, including another cool hack and slash game "Rune"
We have tabs on our browser site listing the games currently using the service (we can support more).
http://master.333networks.com/g/rune
http://master.333networks.com/g/ut

It occurred to me, the total mods should be listed in the browser under their own tab just like full games. I have requested we add Thievery and some other UT total-mods.

We are also currently working on UT2004 support, so we will hopefully be able to support more games and lost community projects.

Note projects and games that want their own masterserver on their own domain, can contact us for help setting up the free software
eg. Thievery can have it's very own masterserver under your own control (same will go for Alien Swarm soon).

Any questions, just give me a poke, or pop into our IRC room.

[UBrowserAll]
bFallbackFactories=False

[UBrowser.UBrowserMainClientWindow]
bKeepMasterServer=True

These changes needed to be made in ThAux.ini, Unrealtournament.ini, and default.ini for me. Otherwise it kept reverting back to the gamespy masterserver.
Also I don't see any thievery servers

Yeah it was us, we eventually figured out how to get on!
Getty told me the ips in the end.
For anyone else that has trouble finding servers to play on:

Multiplayer->Open Location->

85.214.88.92:6666
OR
85.214.88.92:7777

Pst? Soul? A very warm welcome to Thievery first

I like to suggest you a Quick and Easy Way to get my Servers to your Favoritestab of Thievery. Favorites will be updated show up, wether if the Servers are shown on the Internettab or not.

Please open your ThAux.ini File and add these Lines to the Bottom of it:

"[UBrowser.UBrowserFavoritesFact]
FavoriteCount=2
Favorites[0]=Brodys Challenge\85.214.88.92\6667\False
Favorites[1]=Brodys Revenge\85.214.88.92\7778\False", without the Quotes.

From now on you ll see both Server on the browsing Tab FAVORITES of your Thiervery and can again enter them easy by clicking.

For any Help N Support feel free to contact me

I've managed to play a few games on Brody's with Indy but now I can't seem to connect to his server anymore. I've gone through UT.ini, Default.ini and Thaux.ini and changed out all the gamespy server references with master.333networks.com but I still get the Master server failed message at the bottom of the screen with gamespy still listed as the server.

I clicked on the link for the 333networks about and one page with 2 dead links comes up.

Looks like they're back. It seems the problem is when the server gets to Th-Asylum 2. It refuses to send it and I can't get beyond that.

Sorry about the dead links. there was a problem with the server hosting the wiki, but it is back up.

This is the UT wiki page

Hmm...I applied both of those pastes and saved them but I still get a message on the Thievery Populated tab that the master.server.gamespy or whatever can't be resolved. I've modified 3 different files but it's still lookin at gamespy I guess

I don't have Thievery installed at the moment, so I'm not sure how it uses the folders.
Make sure you also edit the ini file in the Thievery/system folder (if it launches from there).

We have found that some mods have a custom ipdrv or hard-coded reference to GS.

I assume UnrealTournament.ini is 1 of the files you edited, what were the other 2 ?

*EDIT*
Just found this thread (includes a tip)
http://forums.blackcatgames.com/showthread.php?t=13715
Careful of simply pasting all of the config there, as it will reset all video and audio to basic compatibility defaults.
Look for what is wrong in yours and paste just what you need.

Ignore unreal.epicgames, it does not exist, and I'm not sure about the functionality of master.mplayer.
Stick with our recommended 3 which includes utmaster.epicgames.com

Currently I've just got Brody's (Challenge?) server saved in my favorites because my Thievery populated list doesnt work right.
