Online with UT3 and Steam
Permalink  
 


Hi all,

I have a retail copy of UT3 which I have added to my steam games. For some reason I cannot login to my UT3 account to play it online. Could this be an issue with the Gamespy account and is there a fix available if this is the case? Alternatively should I just delete the game from all directories and purchase again through Steam? If I was to purchase again through Steam will it work online?

Also Im a bit frustrated with the fact that there is a new Unreal Engine (4) in the works and no news of any new Unreal games. Why GOD Why?!?

yo mate,  imo u should try to delete the game from both directories (mydocuments and where u installed it) then do a clean re install and if your serial number dont work i would contact Flak on Epics forum....there s no reason to not get it working!
for the UE4....yeah it seem they decided to "launch" the new engine without a new opus of the serie....did they decide to suicide the game and the community? it seem they do !....+.+

....we dont care....we will always respawn!!

...héhé.....even god is crying now biggrin

Just a warning about the steam versions Gnrl! If you change gametypes in Multiplayer maps the server may need to quit the game then log off steam and back on before you can play a different gametype.
Admittidly I'm supposed to be doing testing for Flak to nail down why it could be occurring...oops. I better get onto that. :x

 

Aside from that I have done the same thing with my UT3 install and don't have any login issues with it.

Thank you both for your responses. I shall delete UT3 from both directories and reinstall from the CD and download the patches. My current UT3 was downloaded through Steam but using my retail CD key. Not sure if that could be creating a conflict?

I'd start by deleting all the files in the 'config' directory and re-testing, before you delete the entire install. Hopefully it was just a setting in there causing the issue.

Done! Deleted, re-installed , patched and Titan pack added plus a new account created giving me access to the online multiplayer. Hope to catch you guys in a server sometime. Sorry I didn't introduce myself when I joined the Old Friends. Ill do it now. Im early 40's with a small family, love my Death Metal and all things UNREAL. Dabble in a little astronomy and work as a Quality technician in a small but global factory in Adelaide South Australia. These forums are greatly appreciated for all the links to custom content and UNREAL knowledge base. Thanks to all.

Thanks and no problem.



That was 100% stealth. I didn't do anything that people would have to thank me for. Noone saw that coming, noone expected it! Simply stealth.

Damn, I'm good. blankstare


And let's not forget the laaaaate inofficial-official "Welcome to UOF!". biggrin
