Will Steam Racers work on my UT3 dedicated server (Win XP)?
I would also like to try it in Linux too, but first I'll see if it works with Windows.
I have not installed any UT3 mods yet for the Dedicated server so I wondering if you had any tips...
I'm running 6 computer in a Local Area Network

I figured it out after reading many UT3 tutorials. But, I got my laptop to run the dedicated server without having to download 2 Gigabytes of dedicated server files. I am using the Retail game without even running the game itsself, because my laptop can't run those high specs.

Sorry for not getting back to you earlier!

I'm not sure... did you get it to work? I hope so :)

Yes it did work. I can run Steam Racers & The Haunted right off my laptop without starting the retail game.
I tried to make a step-by-step tutorial but I keep getting a File Description: 80 characters error because the .bat files have more than 80 character of code. I wanted to post the exact code UT3 uses to start a LAN server.
I tried using the "Code" tool but same error.
How can I post code with more than 80 characters?

I think you will have to make a line break or something in the long part of the shortcut. I am guessing any words over 80 characters will not fit on MODDBs page, so they don't allow it since it would ruin the pages style.

Darn, well I could try that and explain where to delete the "breaks" but I'm worried that it would make it more confusing to troubleshoot if they don't delete the "breaks".
What if I did an external link to the code?
The only reason I don't want to do that is because they may think it is malicious code. Specially in a .bat file
