Browsing MonsterHunt without GameSpy

Being already hinted this trick I was thinking to not very post it, but I think it won't hurt anything.

We can get a new TAB in UT99's browser without adding any new file having sorted much better MonsterHunt Servers. Things work properly by editing only 2 files located in SYSTEM folder using a text editing tool.

Open and edit file UBrowser.int as follows:
-----
  • [ServerListTitles]
    UBrowserUT=UT Servers
    UBrowserLAN=LAN Servers
    UBrowserPopulated=Populated Servers
    UBrowserDeathmatch=Deathmatch
    UBrowserTeamGames=Team Deathmatch
    UBrowserCTF=Capture the Flag
    UBrowserDOM=Domination
    UBrowserAS=Assault
    UBrowserLMS=Last Man Standing
    UBrowserMH=Monster Hunt //ADD THIS LINE without slashes and these words after slashes
    UBrowserAll=All Servers
-----

Good...
Next file that need editing is your ini... like UnrealTournament.ini as follows in short terms:

-----
  • ...
    [UBrowserAS]
    ListFactories[0]=UBrowser.UBrowserSubsetFact,SupersetTag=UBrowserAll,GameType=Assault,bCompatibleServersOnly=True

    [UBrowserLMS]
    ListFactories[0]=UBrowser.UBrowserSubsetFact,SupersetTag=UBrowserAll,GameType=LastManStanding,bCompatibleServersOnly=True

    //ADD section bellow, without this line
    [UBrowserMH]
    ListFactories[0]=UBrowser.UBrowserSubsetFact,SupersetTag=UBrowserAll,GameType=MonsterHunt,bCompatibleServersOnly=True
    //End of add-on - no need this line

    [UBrowserAll]
    //See which Master Server delivers more MonsterHunt - no need this line is just info - even others known
    ListFactories[0]=UBrowser.UBrowserGSpyFact,MasterServerAddress=utmaster.epicgames.com,MasterServerTCPPort=28900,Region=0,GameName=ut
    ListFactories[1]=UBrowser.UBrowserGSpyFact,MasterServerAddress=unreal.epicgames.com,MasterServerTCPPort=28900,Region=0,GameName=ut
    ListFactories[2]=
    ListFactories[3]=
    ListFactories[4]=
    ListFactories[5]=
    ListFactories[6]=
    ListFactories[7]=
    ListFactories[8]=
    ListFactories[9]=
    bHidden=True
    bFallbackFactories=False
    ServerListTitle=
    URLAppend=
    AutoRefreshTime=0
    bNoAutoSort=False
    ....


    ....
    [UBrowser.UBrowserMainClientWindow]
    LANTabName=UBrowserLAN
    ServerListNames[0]=UBrowserUT
    ServerListNames[1]=UBrowserLAN
    ServerListNames[2]=UBrowserPopulated
    ServerListNames[3]=UBrowserDeathmatch
    ServerListNames[4]=UBrowserTeamGames
    ServerListNames[5]=UBrowserCTF
    ServerListNames[6]=UBrowserDOM
    ServerListNames[7]=UBrowserAS
    ServerListNames[8]=UBrowserLMS
    ServerListNames[9]=UBrowserAll
    ServerListNames[10]=UbrowserMH //Line added without slashes and these words
    ServerListNames[11]=None
    ServerListNames[12]=None

Good luck, monster hunters!

Later note:
Being from now on totally useless these files MonsterHunt.u and MonsterHunt.int you can remove them from your SYSTEM folder to not feel bugged by original additional MH TAB less functional and also to not see any mismatch version error - probably time come for MH v5.04 (I'm working on that) and it simply works from cache with no worries.

Thank you for reading.

Subject 2) Advanced browsing On Line servers (including MonsterHunt without any MonsterHunt related file). A nice player tool has been released, maybe a more fancy and cute UT browser.

Checkout UT'99.org for additional information and download links.
