    Quick guide to install the GameSpy patch

    Here's a quick installation quide for the GameSpy patch.

    Video demonstration (Link)




    Text tutorial
    1. Patch your UT3 game to the latest game patch (Patch5 / v2.1)
    2. Download the patch UT3PatchGS_21.exe
    3. If a security warning pops up, continue with "Run"

      .
    4. The next window will show the patcher.

      Click "Accept"
      .
    5. The patch will be extracted to the Windows temporary folder

      .
    6. If you have User-Access-Control enabled, a popup will follow forcing you to allow the execution of the patch.

      Click "Yes"
      .
    7. After allowing the execution, the EULA will popup. You have to accept the conditions listed there (Note: They are the same as all previous patches)

      Click "Accept"
      .
    8. The next step will try to locate your UT3 folder. If a valid folder is found, you will be faced the following window. Otherwise skip this step and continue with the following step choosing the UT3 install location manually.

      If this path is correct, click "Yes" and ship the next step (which is only for choosing the install location manually)
      .
    9. If UT3 cannot be found at first, the patching process will show a message and the automated patch process will abort. You have to manually choose the install location

      .
    10. After the patch process is done, a window will pop up saying the game is successfully patch.

      .
    11. The patch is now properly installed.

      Note: You can use all the existing shortcuts to start the game.



    Please visit the official thread, if you have problems with the patch itself (like crashes etc.).

      The "patch" should have been an exe from the start. Most people have no clue where to put the file or even how to find the right folder. It's all pretty frustrating. I've helped several of our players install the new exe & lost a lot of hair in the process! Thanks for making this post. Hopefully it will help.

It said 'Succesfull patched'' but somehow i didnt need to register a new login, and cant still go in and play on UT3x Best Maps server.. I only have 3 servers open as favourite. Jolt, ErL and USSR Server.. All is 9999ping. What the hell is wrong?

          You need to be logged into your computer as administrator. Windows 7 (& I'm assuming 8) will NOT let you install ANY patch without being on the administrator account for the computer.

              Probably due to having the UAC enabled which restricts some tasks (like accessing a System folder). I'm currently checking the patch on a non-administator account.

                I cannot not reproduce any problem with the patch. Just be sure to not skip (by pressing a "Skip" button) any process in a file dialog.

                Can you make a screenshot if your windows where is is saying "You need permisson to this"?
                • If you see this screenshot on your PC, press the Print button on your keyboard
                • Open your internet browser (Firefox or Chrome recommended) and visit imgur
                • Press CTRL+V on your keyboard
                • Imgur will show a new window which ask to upload the clipboard content
                • Start the upload
                • If the upload is done, your will be redirected to a new page...
                • Copy and paste the "Image link" on the right side into your new post here
                • With this link, we're able to see screenshot of that window

                !!! Be sure that you don't have any window with private data visible on your screen before you make a screenshot
