Posts relating to the various servers I have worked on.
Six years to the day, on July 4th, 2013 I performed open-case surgery on my primary gaming computer, aka [[Neo]], and on my media-server-turned-gaming-PC that my wife has used, aka [[Oracle]], and migrated the internals of [[Neo]] into [[Oracle]] and bought all new parts for [[Neo]].
Update 2: It has come to my attention, while trying to play UT3 myself after many years, that the GameSpy aspects of the game no longer function due to the incompetence of IGN and the concept of DRM’d games. There’s a pretty good chance that nothing about setting up a UT3 Server, other than for LAN play, will work anymore since the GameSpy servers have been taken offline. This means no logging into the GameSpy account for you or your server, so no online authentication, leaving only offline play.
Update 1: I have updated the links that were broken, and some formatting & informational changes.
Surprisingly there are no complete blog postings or forum topics that tell you how to set up a UT3 Internet Server from start to finish…so here we go (this guide will primarily focus on a Windows install, but I will include as much info as I can for Linux):
I upgraded [[Oracle]] this weekend to have a 500gb hard drive in it. I got the drive, a Seagate SATA II 500gb drive for $107 at Frys. The sale ends today, 10/2, so I decided not to pass it up. Now I store all my music on that drive, and am using the 450gb RAID of 120s to store my movies that I haven’t, or can’t, burn to DVDs. That frees up a drive I can dedicate to just Game ISOs and get it off my Downloads drive that I store OS installations, and other software installation files that I don’t want to go find.
