For server administrators who host an UT2004 server.
Server Side Configuration
Before making changes to your configuration, make sure to turn off your gameserver. Once you have located the configuration file, open it with a text editor of choice and find the [IpDrv.MasterServerLink] section. In this section, you replace the old Epic Games entry (red) with two of the 333networks-affiliated masterserver entries (green):
Remove the line containing ut2004master.epicgames.com. Epic Games ceased their services in 2023 and the domain no longer resolves to a masterserver.
Insert entries for 333networks and errorist (green).
Note that UT2004 only uses one of these entries at will. 333networks and errorist synchronise their entries so you always uplink to both masterservers.
Restart your gameserver. The first time that you restart the server, close and re-open your configuration file to see if the changes persisted. It may take up to 15 minutes before your gameserver shows up on ut2004master.333networks.com.
