Server GameSpy Login

All servers require a unique login to allow a server to show in the master server list. This login has to be created via the client "Create Profile". You can create multiple profiles under the same email address but you must use the same password for each if you do so.

Server Names

Server names can be specified in the server's UTGame.ini

The ServerDescription field isn't in plain ascii or text as you and I know it. Instead its in UCS2 (UTF-16) which is then serialised as numeric strings.

Enable Mapvote

Edit the UTGame.ini. Under the [UTGame.UTGame] section, be sure to have this:

bAllowMapVoting=True
VoteDuration=45
GameSpecificMapCycles=(GameClassName="UTDeathmatch",Maps=("DM-Arsenal","DM-Biohazard","DM-CarbonFire","DM-Deck","DM-Defiance","DM-Deimos","DM-Diesel","DM-Fearless","DM-Gateway","DM-HeatRay","DM-RisingSun","DM-Sanctuary","DM-Sentinel","DM-ShangriLa"))
