This quick fix restores the server list for Rainbow Six 3 Raven Shield.
Works with Ubisoft, Steam or original Retail version.

REQUIRES OpenRVS 1.5 Multiplayer Patch first! Which you can get here in the original post.

If any questions just ask here or on in #techsupport or #rainbowsix3 channel.

Just copy/merge the respective folder onto your game's folder to update.

This does not change any of your settings.

ALLR6 | Tango Hunt, Missions and Zombies.

All have had no issues. Literally people from Serbia, Canada, USA, UK, Norway, Germany, Russia, France, Italy, Australia, Brazil, Venezuela, Spain and even Japan played on it. I guess because its an older game too it doesn't require as much bandwidth to run it.

You may also increase your rendering memory and cache sizes with this update: which helped a few people.

You may join us on comms at too (also text channels if you dont want to use a mic) and you will see what I mean. People from everywhere big_smile

which servers?
One server can't be sub 50ms all over the world. and with no ping shown on the server browser, you can't tell which is located where.

As for servers, we run paid servers. About $70 a month for ours.

Thanks heaps for setting this up, I play online with some friends on the servers. good fun.

Have an issue with enemies being invisible temporarily, or just appearing after a few seconds of spotting them (usually enough time for them to kill you), not sure if its lag related? (i am on the other side of the world to the servers) wasn't sure if anyone else has a similar problem.

Also, when creating your own online match, are you able to share some info on how it works or how to set it up or IF it works? I got a match running the other day, but didnt have a friend around at the time to test to see if they could join via IP or see it on the server list.

If you have any problems let me know.

Some of you in Windows 10 may need to edit your RavenShield.ini in the System folder of your game.
Find the line


and make it


then you just press Alt+Enter when you launch the game when at the menu.

You maybe can try changing your VerticleSync settings too.

To play online again you just need the ALLR6 2.4 patch (has OpenRVS 1.3 included) below:
Automatic Quick Install - also comes with ALLR6 Armpatch!

1) Download From MODDB:
[ Rainbow Six 3 Online Multiplayer Patch v2.4 ALLR6 ]
Backup Download if ModDB is down: … 8.exe/file

^ It also includes the sound update so you hear all the sounds in multiplayer from many custom maps plus Athena Sword, Iron Wrath, Rogue Spear and original Rainbow Six maps!

2) OpenRVS 1.5 Mini Update July 2021 … -patch-v15

3) If you want, we HIGHLY reccommend that you get the Optimization Patch as well. It will help run the latest maps smoother and it fixes a lot of issues with Windows 10 and modern PC compatibility. Download: [ R6 3 2020 Optimization Patch ] Just copy Mods and System folders into your Rainbow Six 3 Gold or Raven Shield folder.

How to install ALLR6 Multiplayer Rainbow Six 3 Patch - instructions:
1. Close the game, close Steam or Uplay
2. Install to your Rainbow Six 3 Gold or Raven Shield folder. Run the patch as Administrator.
For example if you have the Steam version you would go to:

C: > Program Files > Steam > steamapps > common > Rainbow Six 3


C: > Program Files (x86) > Raven Shield

for other versions.
3. Make sure you select the correct location of your game folder on your computer.
4. Go to Multiplayer > Internet (not LAN) and hit refresh to see the servers then Play!

5. IMPORTANT! Set your connection speed to T3 in the Multiplayer Options like below:

• I suggest 1920x1080 resolution for most people this looks the best.
• Right click Ravenshield.exe - Properties - Run As Administrator and Compatibility for Windows XP SP3
• Install this to properly optimize your game for smoother FPS and better graphics and sound:
[ ]

WINDOWS 10 ISSUES: Sometimes it does not install to the game folder.
* If it still does not work, manual install the patch.
* Just install the patch to a folder on your desktop.
* Then just copy and paste the inside folders (sounds, armpatches, system)
   to your game folder. Done!


We have brand new maps, HD hit effects, and new tangos, missions, civilians, tons of new guns and custom camo, scopes and sights and A LOT more.

Remastered maps as well from all R6 titles and more games.

Join these servers, the first ones on the list!
Voice/text chat on DISCORD:

We run classic realistic maps from RS, AS, IW, UO, R6 1, RVS (R63) and many custom maps including SWAT 4 maps and some CALL OF DUTY ones. As you can see from my screen shots thread my servers are full a few times a day and people from all over the world play on it! Community is coming back stronger than ever.
