    I have installed it and it works. I kept my same player names since Gametracker still works.

    Online player number have been up since the UT4 anouncement. I will switch to UT4 when it's ready.

    Too bad about stats and friends. GameSpy abandoned all the games. This should be a lessons learned. Never trust a 3rd party like that again.

    Epics UT3 forums has the link to the new UT3.exe zip file and more info for those who still play online.

    I just tried it myself and it's no go... I dragged the file into where the Steam version is, launched it from both Steam and direct double-click and I still cannot make an account. Are the new servers not up or if they are then why is the "patch" I installed still accessing the old GS server?

    Not that it matters since I don't play online, or UT 3, for many years now...

    I renamed my old ut3.exe file ut3.exe-old. I then copied the new ut3.exe file I extracted from the zip file to the correct location. I started UT3 and created a login.

    I installed the DVD version and have win7, so the file had to go here, C:\Program Files (x86)\Unreal Tournament 3\Binaries\UT3.exe

    With win7, Steam places it here, C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Unreal Tournament 3\Binaries\UT3.exe.

    Check out the official EPIC forums thread for more help and info.

    other servers ?

    I don't play UT3 online very often, but when I do I drink Dos Equis.....wait, I mean I didn't patch yet and it looks like some servers are still active. What does this mean? Will they also appear in my patched game or will just more servers appear in patched game? Thanks.

    According to the Epic Games UT3 Official thread, Gamespy will turn off 12 am July 1 or midnight June 30. After that time, unpatches games will not see any servers in the browser.

    If you do not instal the patch, after that cut off, you may still be able to join servers via history if they have not changed their IP address. But your server browser will have show a ping of 9999 for everything listed in history and Favs. I believe you can also join by typing in the servers IP address via the command line after the cut off..

    From what I read in the Official Epic Games UT3 thread, anti-virus programs and Win 8.0 and 8.1 have caused problems for some folks.

    I see Beer Drinkers, War 2-3, Greed 1, Christian Carnage, Hedsteem, and other servers show up for me, so they all have the new server binary installed.

    For more details and for help installing the patch visit the official thread.

    OK, I'll try and patch before end of month then. I haven't installed UT3 on my laptop Win8.1 computer yet. Also, I'm using free Avira AntiVir for my desktop computer, so hopefully no problems there. Thanks for the info.:)

    Are Epic still going to push this to the Steam version so we don't have to install it manually?

    There is new info on the EPIC Official Thread.

    https://forums.epicgames.com/threads/986045-Gamespy-Patch-Info?p=31829891&viewfull=1#post31829891

    The new part of the post has an installer based on official installer for Patch 5 (2.1);


    A big thank you to Bubbaxm2, RattleSN4K3, and everyone else who worked on this for the community.

    Steam has the patch, not sure when they will distribute it. Not much info on that in the official thread.
