Hey, if your an unreal fan and want to replay some of the earlier Unreal titles, the Unreal Anthology Boxset is the one to get for only about $30.00 USD.

The people at oldunreal.com highly support Epic and Midways current unreal gold release and have developed a fix already for online compatibility. If you have the boxset AND CANNOT GET IN A SERVER THROUGH THE EPIC MASTERSERVER!!, then you want to follow this link for an .exe to fix compatibility issues online:

(PLEASE VISIT MY POST BELOW)

Good luck and I hope to see you fraggin' soon online!

Been there done all that, about five or six years ago I think… maybe even longer… good game though if you have never played any of them.

AH.. cool, well id highly recommend that when you get some free time to get your old unreal back on your hard drive and patch it up with the lastest at oldunreal.com. If your not into Deathmatch or Team Deathmatch as much, you could always join the co-op servers and fight some monsters with the latest coop mods with other unrealers :)

This is to all who are buying/bought the unreal anthology boxset including Unreal, Unreal2, and Unreal Tournament. The unreal anthology boxset is in stores but the Unreal Gold version they included in the package is incompatible online because of Midway logo's.

An Anthology installer fix has been developed by the good guys at celticwarriors.net to solve this problem for online compatibility

NOTE: ONLY USE THIS INSTALLER IF YOU HAVE TRIED TO JOIN AN ONLINE UNREAL 1 SERVER WITH ANTHOLOGY AND GOT A CONNECTION FAILED ERROR!!!!!

There was already a fix released, but after a brief contact Diehard got from Midway i decided to make it more official and release an official unreal community patch and here it is:
http://www.celticwarriors.net/Downloads/Patches/GamePat...

The patch fixes the network problem and also installs an UnrealGold helpfile(optional) for people that are new to the game.
In addition to that we also released an OMP patch that enables you to use OpenGL, and if you want the S3TC textures

Heres the OMP :
