I've also just put up a Quake 3 server if anyone's interested. I know it's not the latest of games, but still wicked fun to play :-)
Just to let anyone who's interested know that it's back up and un-passworded :-)
There's always been an issue hosting servers that are behind a NAT'd firewall. I've had a couple other people find it without issue on the Internet tab. If you can't see it when sorting by Ping (it should be at the top cause it's local ;-)), then try sorting by name. The name of the server is ServerSix-Qatar. Then just double-click on it.
If that still doesn't work, then go to your Favorites tab and add it manually. Right click in the top area and then click Add to Favorites. Type in: 188.8.131.52:7777. You should then see the server appear.
Oh, and it's passworded. The password is aenima. I'd suggest playing as your name here so I know it's you. Otherwise, I'll ban folks I don't recognize. I've played against many folks here in the middle east and sad to say, there's a lot of lamers/cheats. So I'm just trying to weed them out.
It's not a great server (mainly due to Qtel's poor upload max of 256k), but it's something a few friends can get together and frag on :-)
How do I connect to that server? I've been all over UT2k4 and don't see where i can enter the server IP.
My ping is soooo high trying to reach my favorite servers that i can't play :( Way too much lag. Is this a permanent local server?
Or just one running on your machine?
