Gamespy will shut down at 31 of may all services, including UT3 Master Server List. To find any server you need to patch UT3. This post is to give a head start to people about what they need to do in order to use it. This is for the retail version of the game as the steam version will get the patch automatically if you have your game set to keep updated.

The patch will be more of a replacement UT3.exe than a patch in the traditional sense and once it's time to patch you will be able to download as a .zip file. We will merely be replacing the original UT3 executable in the binaries folder with the new one that will point you to the new master server rather than the Gamespy server. Just a matter of unzipping it and dropping it in place.

For example, I use Windows 7 64 bit so I navigate to, C:\Program Files (x86)\Unreal Tournament 3\Binaries, once there I simply drag and drop the new UT3.exe into the folder. When the screen pops up asking me what I would like to do, I select move and replace as my option. This will replace the old .exe file with the new one. You will now be directed to the new master server whenever you start your game.

Once you have the new .exe and go to log on it will tell you that username and password are wrong. You will need to recreate any and all of your usernames on the new master server as all of the ones you have registered on Gamespy will go away with Gamespy. You can use the same names as before and even the same passwords, you just need to have them registered on the new server now instead of Gamespy.

This patch will also work with the steam version of the game if you wish to go ahead and use it also. Just have to go a little deeper to get to the original. Such as for me I had to go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Unreal Tournament 3\Binaries to get to mine in windows 7 64 bit.
