It does not look like ID Software will be bringing the master server back online. Fortunately, we have come up with a fix to this problem so you can see servers in the game browser again!





For Windows users follow the steps below:

  1. Click Start - Run
  2. Type notepad C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and Press OK.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the hosts file and add the following lin: 216.86.155.165 master.quake3arena.com
  4. Save the file and close notepad.
  5. You can now see server in the quake3 browser!

For Linux / Mac:

  1. Open up a shell prompt.
  2. As root, type nano /etc/hosts
  3. Add 216.86.155.165 master.quake3arena.com to the bottom of the hosts file.
  4. Save and close the file.

Players can manually connect to the CROM servers via the q3 console by issuing any one of the commands below:

  1. /connect 3w.cromctf.com
  2. /connect ctf.cromctf.com
  3. /connect freeze.cromctf.com
  4. /connect ffa.cromctf.com
  5. /connect ra3.cromctf.com

Server admins can broadcast their servers to the master by adding sv_master2 "master.cromctf.com" to the server configuration file.

Update: The master server is back up and operational. master.cromctf.com will remain up for those that want to use it.

Enjoy!
