== Joining passworded servers with 226 ==
What is the problem?
Unreal version 224v up to 225f lets you go to the multiplayer Player Setup where
one line reads password. There you can enter a password which will be used
on all servers you are going to join...
In version 226 (and gold) you do not have this option in the Player Setup any

Open your Unreal Browser as you always do when joining a game. When you see the
serverlist, you will have to make the window a bit bigger or scroll to the right

which does not exist in reality):
and a friend told you the password is "hello" to join this server. In this
case, you would:
