    UT3 Dedicated Server on Windows 2008 Server?

    Hey all,

    I've got a delema. I'm trying to setup a UT3 dedicated server on Win2K8 Server for a LAN party I have coming up, and I'm not having much luck. I followed the directions in this thread to get the UT3 Dedicated server installed, however when I launch it with any command line arguements, I get the error below (Here are some of the ones I've tried):


    UT3.exe - Unable To Locate Component

    This application has failed to start because d3dx10_35.dll was not found.
    Re-installing the application may fix this problem.


    This strikes me as a DirectX 10 component. When I copy that file from a Vista SP1 box, it moves to another file, then another file, etc... Once I got them all copied, and regsitered via regsvr32.exe, the dedicated server would finally launch, but none of my Retail games could find the UT3 server. Another thing I tried is editing the UTEngine.ini file and setting AllowD3D10=True and setting it to False. That didn't work either. All firewalls on this server are disabled, so that's not the issue. Anyone have any idea's? or am I fighting a loosing battle?

    Odd that the UT2K4 Dedicated server runs just fine on my 2K8 Server box...

    Hmm, are you able to connect to the server with a batch file like

    ut3.exe IP-you-use?

    You mean with 'not find' is not listed in the UT3 serverbrowser, right?

    Are you able to see the server with HLSW (for example) if you search for:
    IP-you-use:7777:6500 (if your gameports are default)

    What is your dedicated server command line?

      No, I'm not able to connect to the server with the batch file you've given.

      You are correct, it doesn't show up in the serverbrowser.

      No, I'm not able to see the server with HLSW.

      The command line I used is from the link I provided. Pick one, I've tried them all with no luck.

      Thanks for your time.

        Did you install DirectX 10 on the server? It might need it. Also, is your server running a firewall?

          I've installed DX10 earlier...

          I am running 2 servers, 1 client and the compiler, working flawlessly


          cheers

            Sorry for the delay. Life gets in the way at times.

            Did you install DirectX 10 on the server? It might need it.
            I did now. I didn't even think to check to see if DX10 could be downloaded... Thanks for the tip. That helped with the errors.

            Also, is your server running a firewall?
            No. I've disabled all firewalls on the server.

            I've got the server working where I can get in when I run ut3 <ip address of server>, but it still doesn't show up in the LAN browser. Any ideas to get that to work?

            The command line I'm currently running is:

            Code:
            ut3.exe server CTF-Hydrosis?Game=UTGameContent.UTCTFGame_Content?numplay=4?Botskill=5 -login=xxxxxxx -password=xxxxxxx -nohomedir -unattended
            Thanks again for your help.

              Try to append ?bIsLanMatch=true.

                Unfortunately, that didn't work. Any other ideas?

                  You might also use another OS. Linux is a good choice for gameserver and it's much cheaper than your 2k8 server.

                  Windows just sucks..

                    You created an account just to say that?

                      My 2k8 server is part of my technet subscription. Since I have years of experience with 2k8, and virtually none with Linux, Linux is not an option, as that would require another box, and a learning curve that I'm not interested in, nor have time to invest in, especially for a setup that will only be used 4 times a year on a local LAN.

                        Bravo.

                        Linux bigots sure get annoying. We understand you guys like Linux. Just go grep and kill pids or compile your kernel somewhere else. K? It's not like installing the Linux version of the server is going to actually solve his problem.

                        It would be nice if someone from Epic would respond and try to help this fellow out.
