    Well, with all the crazyness with servers going to and whatnot, I would like to know the best way to reinstall UT3. My present install is on my WinXP machine built in 2009 and it's still running strong, but I want to make sure UT3 continues if the XP system dies and I want to be safe for online games. I plan on doing this in about a month on my Asus ROG Win8.1 laptop. I know this works with UT and UT2004 as long as you don't try and get online with both computers. How about UT3? Can I use same install disc? If so, do I have to use the same login name or can I change it slightly?

    I was able to change name slightly in UT and UT2004 without any problem. All old installs are gone for all Unreal/UT games; at least any I would think of trying again. Presently, Unreal/UT/UT2003/UT2004/UT3 are all installed on my WinXP computer. Thank you.

    The install media doesn't matter at all. You can use your old disc, you can download ISO from the internet (though it's technically illegal), etc.
    What matters is your CD-key and your login/password pair.

    You can reuse your CD-key, it's fine. You probably won't be able to login with two copies using the same CD-key at the same time. Complete lack of annoying DRMs is one of the things that made in UT3 just right :).

    You can also reuse your old GaySpy login/password, or you can create a new one. Again, you can't login using the same login from two places simultaneously. AFAIK GS accounts aren't bound to CD-key.

    However, what exactly happens to existing GS accounts is not known at the moment.

    Yep, I know about the at-the-same-time stuff. What I wonder is if I should do this before or after May 31st? Hmmmm........;)

    Nobody really knows what the solution Epic has will be.

    Just regarding install media... you can register your key with Steam, and then Steam can manage installs and updates. Or at least you could do so a while back. I think I registered mine with Steam as soon as I was aware that it was possible... probably the main reason I got Steam at all.
