    UT3 officially broken on PS3.

    [UPDATE] Apparently it's been fixed, see post #9

    Apparently the PS3 version's affected too:



    To add insult to injury, system link doesn't work....as it wants you to use a SEN account, so no lan tunnelers.

    Unless UT3 gets a PS3 patch, your disc is now a paperweight.

    I use my PS3 as a Hot plate anyway and now I have a matching coaster!

        This! <and enjoy the game in all its potential & IMHO how it was meant to be played, I have both PS/3 and PC versions; truthfully my 9 year old is the only one who plays the console version in our house the other 5 of us play on PC's>

        While I feel too many significant compromises were made to make UT3 cross platform compatible I can still see OP's concern, Epic is the best company of any video game company there is and supports their products with a level above and beyond any other company. If you can bring this issue to the attention of the right people / person maybe Epic can do something about it .. maybe not though due to the obvious inherent limitations of the console. I'll PM someone and ask them to look at this.

          Yup, I already own it on PC. I just posted it here since the PS3 version did still have a few people on it.

              • I asked nicely for the source code, i asked nicely for the Hex Key for the master server.. i got nothing.
              • You can send an email to Warner Bro's they are a good company and maybe receiving 1000 emails from PS3 users they might put a tick up Epic to fix it.

              • Problem = <100 active PS3 user's so .....


              - i posted to Flak about unaswered UT3 forums Q's and i got
              "the GOW forums are closed" - or words to that effect lol- poor stacey must be working too hard..

              The only reason i own 4 PS3's is because of 4 copies of UT3 - looks like back to PS2 Networked with FreeMCBoot

              edit:
              i have not actually tried a PS3 server since the Patch - have you tried networking your PS3 to your PC and then inviting friends... FreeMCBoot and something like Hamtachi (if there is a ps3 version)
              may be able to do this [but i haven't cracked a PS3 to try yet- still need a re-ball kit]

                Edit +:
                I get an error message when installing UT3 PS3 dedi server:"This package is already installed" well it sure aint installed so i don't think i can try.
                - I might be able to find an Old HD with a pre-installed PS3 server but i do not know if Copy/Paste will work.

                - just make sure server admin have registered their emails using the fake "createaccount.bat" system and post what has been tried until more info is provided

                    awesome glad you go t it sorted, poke the OP to get a [Solved] tag added , sadly i still cannot install the PS3 server, no idea why. maybe left over reg files from before or something

                    Edit:
                    I copy/Paste the server files from another location and PS3 server works without the Gamespy patch
                    - i do not know why it says the server was already installed though, confusion with the PC version so for Server owners in teh future i recommend installing the PS3 server first , then the game and PC server if you run those aswel.

                        Been down for two days. I've been doing some reading on this, today, and I'm not impressed as of yet. I will remain hopeful though.... Plus its not just UT3, there are a lot of other PS3 games using gamespy servers being dealt this card.

                            Gamespy has shut down for good. PS3 players, as far as I know, are just out of luck.

                              Yep....everytime I clicked 'multiplayer', nothing. Sucks.

                              At least I still have plenty of custom maps to enjoy.
