Guys, if you need something related to the reverse engineeing, just ask. I'd try to do my best. I think it could be possible to find out how the authentication to the master server works. It seems to be part of IpDrv.dll.
And yes, CD hash seems to be based of MD5.

What does it mean "your own master server"? Just TCP server running on specified port without any logic or something more?

Jup xD 
Have a chat on xfire? markieboy1991.  (Please don't all contact me, I don't know more than there is posted here. I can't handle the amount of chats in xfire).
 
Game server doesn't start sending to the master server, seems like it is waiting for some kind of masterserver TOKEN.

Ip to Domainname didn't find any domainnames on that ip address unfortunately.
Neither I can find the IP address anywhere in the source code or config files.


i'm sur the IP is present in game configs, but they probably put it into a dll  >:(

You can disassemble it, but you'll need to be able to read the assembler output.  :-X
C++, or any combination of "efficiency options", there is absolutely no way to standardize a decompiler.

Best of luck, sorry for the bad news.  >:(  :(

Yes, it seems so. According to the disassembly, after some data are received from the server, there can be some auth request - sending CD key hash (along with other info such as OS?!) or testing of the APPROVED / DENIED strings received from the master server etc.
Probably I'll try to debug the whole thing somehow. It could be more helpful.

ut2003master1.epicgames.com (whicch is not responding now)
but i found this one : ut2003master2.epicgames.com, and seems reachable, why not to test it ?

actually int / eng files are useless. the master ip is in ipdrv.u , the game has hashed it so i cant change and test the server

I'm working on a masterserver list alternative. (work in progress: http://www.markmods.com/swat4masterserver/ )
First a web version, if the main masterserver remains offline after monday I'll start on a client mod integrated in SWAT4.
But let's hope the masterserver will get back online soon.

yes but i don't think it will work cuz both the servers are online and are just like diff ports to a server. but i would surely like to try it.
i try to hash the ipdrv.u and find its hash in packages.md5 and packages.txt but didn't find it anywhere , don't know where does the game save the hash for this file.
anyway even if i succeed we need the master server mechanism , if someone finds / leaks it , someone would need to host master server

Hosting isn't a problem, MarkMods is willing to do so.
But this ain't as easy as you guys just mentioned.
