However, with the downturn in the economy (and my slightly-better-than-arbitrary prediction of a <7,000 point stock market by the end of the month…Spring Break at the latest), I figure it’s time to start taking into consideration other possible sources of income. Not for fear of losing my job, but rather to help get my bills in check Credit Cards, primarily, who have decided it is time to raise the minimum payment – which is the only thing enabling me to devote a greater portion of my money to one in order to pay it off, while keeping the others at par until it is their turn.
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):
