I don't know exactly what is happening....
If I view all servers I get ip addresses but no hostnames
A search of deathmatch is empty as is all the other selections in the online game browser

Heya,

Just to make sure, are you using the latest public version of 227? (called 227i)

It resolves the invalid master server entry to the new master server so that the server list can be obtained.

If you are using 227i, I guess I'll have to ask somebody more knowledgeable about netplay in Unreal why this is happening (if they don't show up here in this thread first).

Also welcome to oldunreal, hope you enjoy your time here. Smiley

Thank you for the greeting and reply
I am using 227i, and I tried using the list on the wiki page about masterserver.
Neither is a solution.
I have firewall off on a win 7 box

Unreal first gets the list of game server IP's and ports from master server, then it queries every server and pings it to populate the list with usable data. When you only see IP's the master server communication worked, but the game server queries did not happen. Check if you gave Unreal right to make the necessary queries and pings in your firewall.

(A decent personal firewall prompts for permission, you need to give it the requested permissions then.)

The querying can also stall for some time when it is waiting for the results of one of the master servers. You can right-click the IP and select to query all servers to force it to start querying and pinging the game servers.

When you right-click the list of IP's and select "ping all servers", what happens?

I don't get any changes at all.
I don't get a report or anything.
It is as if I never executed ping all servers.

This is as far as I can help you for now. Maybe it helps if you post your Unreal.log file after trying to query the servers. (Make sure to remove passwords from the log before sharing)

Probably not a solution, but you can replace all instances of "hyper.dnsalias.net" to "master.hypercoop.tk" in your Unreal.ini because I had to change the hostname.

All other master server adresses that give "WSAHOST_NOT_FOUND" are no longer valid as well. But still, master.oldunreal.com works fine and gets queried by your client so the problem is somewhere else...

I do not know why it fails or refuses to ping.

I updated the links that you mentioned Hyper.
I have a 220 version that I applied the classic patch to before the 227i patch.
Not sure why I cannot see the servers.
This issue persists.

I waited a couple minutes and the list of IP addresses got smaller and smaller until there was no IPs at all.
Each of the browser tabs were empty except for the community news tab which had community news.

Still sounds like something is blocking the pinging from your Unreal server browser to the game servers.

I moved the Unreal install to another tower, same problem.
Maybe a new install will bring different results.
