    I want to be able to play with my brother

    Hi, in ut2k4 i could play with my brother using the same copy of the game, for some reason in this game we can play ANY online game as long as we're not on the same server??? Could you please make an exception and allow two connections from THE SAME IP on a server with the same key? My brother is a casual gamer and will only play this game together with me so he won't go and buy it anyway.

    If someone copied my key without my permission that person would be perfectly fine as long as he wouldn't join the same servers as me. Instead you put restrictions on those who want to play with family.

    Could you please do something about this? I reckon this has to do with the way that servers are configured.

    Do you have 2 seperate Gamespy user names and passwords based on 2 seperate email accounts and 2 seperate installs?

    If so then you should both be able to play as long as your logged in on 2 different accounts!

      I to have this same issue as well as in gears of war.

      I have two computers & Two separate installs for both games. Why do we have to have game spy or live accounts to play local?

      I have tried offline ut3 with my brother it don't work Ive tried with two different accounts it don't work . we have the same CD key on our installs is that the issue? same as gears.

      I don't see why I'd have to go buy another copy just to play 1v1 in my own home offline =o *Dial up FTL! if I had high speed I'd by another copy of gears & ut3 to play online with him but intell then i'm sticking to LAN

        You dont need to buy another copy!

        I play local to my server machine which has the free didicated install and also the retail version installed.

        I have the same retail version installed on my client machine and I can make a listen game server side where im the player host and join that from my lan machine and play NP. So im in this game by myself as 2 players playing from 2 different machines.

        I also can make a free dedicated server side and from that server machine I can connect to my free dedicated as a client retail version on the same server machine and I can connect to this from the client machine. So again im in my free dedicated as 2 players from 2 different machines with 1 copy of the game and 1 CD key.

        Gamespy accounts are free and are easy to get with another email address and im sure you got at least 1 more email address you can make another gamespy user name and password on.

        If not there are many easy ways to get several email accounts for free. My MSN allows me to set up several so??

        Good luck and read the FAQ first sticky in this forum you probably find all your answers to your questions.

          It's called copyright infringement. If you want to play, you got to pay.

            so I'm guessing I have to install the dedicated server part of the game or download it to play lan?

            what about gears of war? it does the same thing as ut3. no lan games located.[

                    no, it's called common sense.

                    it still doesn't work so i suggest that people rewrite the server code that does this check and put an exception there. too few people are playing this game anyway so it would just help.

                      Yes i agree the more i read about this game in the forums the less i want to buy it. Epic better start fixing it up and make it more playable so it will play in everyones machines and not only in super machines with 3 gigs of ram and 8800 gts video cards lol!!!
