    Sorry. I wasn't reading your original post correctly. No, you can't uncompress a upk file with these methods.

    These methods take an original uncompressed file (like a .ut3 map or a .upk file) and compress them into uz3 files for placement on a redirect server. And then if desired you can take the uz3 file and decompress it back to the original file (like a upk file).

      I get an error message when trying to decompress a ut3.uz3 file, it says it's a non-valid unreal package?

        i used the UT3 Vice Tool to decompress files and it seems to work most of the time. got some corrupt files but they might have been that way from the dl to start. most worked.

                For example, when I tried to compress the following:
                C:\Users\XXX\Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Unpublished\CookedPC\CustomMaps\Tutorial. ut3

                it placed it here,
                C:\Users\XXX\Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Unpublished\Unpublished\CookedPC\CUSTOM~1 \Tutorial.ut3.uz3

                Bizarre ...
                Adding the "-nohomedir" parameter to the ut3.com command line should fix this. ie,

                "C:\Program Files (x86)\Unreal Tournament 3\Binaries\UT3.com" compress "%1" -nohomedir

                The new .uz3 files should now be found in the same directory where the original .ut3/.upk/.u files are located.
