UT2004 Master Server (Update Fix)


Recommended Posts

I Updated our UT2004 Server so it shows up on new master server but everyone that still plays should still update their ut2004.ini file with the new master server link below

How to Update your Game

Updating your Unreal Tournament 2004 install is quite easy. This page will walk you through what is needed to change your game from talking to Epic Games’ master server, and over to OpenSpy’s master server.

(Console Only)The Quick Way (in-game) to update

In the game, open the console (~ key) and paste the following command and run it:

set IpDrv.MasterServerLink MasterServerList ((Address="utmaster.openspy.net",Port=28902))

and relaunch the game. This will update your game automatically.

(Editing UT2004.ini Manualy)The Longer Way to update

  1. Browse on your computer to where your copy of Unreal Tournament 2004 is installed.
    GOG Games Installs (default) to: C:\GOG Games\Unreal Tournament 2004
    Original CD/DVD Installs to: C:\UT2004\
    Steam Installs to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Unreal Tournament 2004
  2. Go to the “System” folder inside of the UT2004 install. You’ll find a file called UT2004.ini
  3. Open the file and scroll down to UT2004.ini and open it with notepad.
  4. Search the file until you come to this section:
  5. Delete the second MasterServerList line, and change the first line, so that it looks like this.
  6. Save the file, and open the game. You’re updated!

Important Notes

You cannot keep multiple master servers at once. The game only supports pulling from one server at the time. The reason there are two Epic Games servers is for load balancing so that incoming requests are split up. You are talking to the exact same system otherwise. Epic’s master server is dead anyway, so there is no reason to keep either of their old lines in your ut2004.ini config file.
