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    C:\Users\XXX\Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Unpublished\Unpublished\CookedPC\CUSTOM~1 \Tutorial.ut3.uz3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

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

    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 install the 1.2 patch, but when I try to decompress a upk file, this message appear:

    This tool should be decompress upk files, right? It's telling me that's only decompress .uz3 files...

    I only download the 1.2 patch... I never installed the 1.1 path, maybe it's the problem or something else?

    PS: There are some other tool to uncompress upk files?

    Thanks in advanced

    Edit: I installed the 1.1 patch but it's worst... With this just happend the first problem...

    This is because UT3.com isn't handling the long file (folder) name properly. UT3.exe would.

    You would need the latest patch.

    Maybe start a topic for this, you may yield a better response, this topic is about compressing/decompressing files (thats all people see in the title).

    When is the creator of Redirect Checker making a UT3 version? That's the best and easiest of all.

    Nice work man.
    Easily fixed.

    1) Open the Explorer, select menu option Tools | Options and click on the File Types tab.
    2) Click New, type UZ3 and click OK.
    3) Click the Advanced button, then Change Icon... and browse for the UT3 executable to select the icon and click OK.
    4) Click OK and then Close to exit the Folder Options dialog.

    (I used CookerSync.exe so compressed files use the green U icon.)
