Or is it me?

Currently, all servers in my favorites are showing OK.. but when trying to
pull the DM list, I get no list. CTF only shows 3 servers (and all of them
are Catchers).... WTF?

More about : master server flaked

Yeah I'm only getting the three *Catcher* servers too but I was
on IRC and it said that the master server was down and to bear
with them. The pings on those Catcher servers are incredibly
high too I got em' at 360 to 420!

I just went and checked on IRC again Six and Red Menace said
that the master server "is having a bit of a problem" and that
the Eavy Serverbrowser is still working and still shows servers.
Do you have the Serverbrowser? I have it and can post it to the
binary group if you don't. It's a .umod and is only like 14
kilobytes or something really small.

I wonder if catcher is running the master server now. I find it all to be
quite strange because I was told he announced a few weeks ago that his boss
sold the company and he no longer had any bandwidth with which to host
servers.... and now he has an extra one (and I suspect maybe the master as
well).

I dunno about the ping. I used to get good pings to catchers but I quit
playing with those fellows (reasons archived in this group as well as on
catchers forum... I won't go into it again).

Comin right up dude! :-) I just installed the browser myself as I
didn't have it installed and played at this server:
82.32.46.173:7777 It's a Minimad server and was playing Gothic.
It has Map Vote though. I sorted the list by the ping and when I
pinged the server a couple of times it was between 100 and 200
and the map only had average bots in it but it really started to
lag a lot and the bots beat me senseless! Needless to say I lost
but didn't come in last. After the match was over the ping was
over 700!!!.

That serverbrowser doesn't have any kind of configuration or
anything that I can see after it's installed but either it works or
they have fixed the master server because after I installed it
I got 353 DeathMatch servers!. Just install it and browse like
you normally do.

Which IRC?

Do you have a URL for the browser mod? (I'd love to browse the site where
you found it.)

Start Unreal Tournament ->Multiplayer -> Find Internet Games
->look for a tab called "Chat". On the Chat page pick #utchat
from the dropdown list, click connect and start typing away.

Sure dude! Go here and look on the right hand side of the page
for all the goodies. :-)

However, now I don't need to worry that the epic.com wants to cancel
demo's Internet gaming :) )

I saw this tip on the Atari forums:

Go to Unrealtourmament.ini
Find bHidden=True and bFallbackFactories=True
Replace those with bHidden=False and bFallbackFactories=False

Works like a charm.
