I am sure many of you are aware of the closure of the GameSpy masterservers.
After 31st of May, many games will no longer have multiplayer access.
There is a solution already available.

Darkelarious at 333networks has expanded his UT support to include all the known users of the original GameSpy protocol.
Anyone hosting or playing a game at risk, should head over to http://333networks.com where you can see the status of the current game support.
We do need help to verify the master is functioning for theses games, as we don’t have all these games.

Current Support;

  • Red Ace Squadron
  • Heretic II
  • Legends of Might and Magic
  • Duke Nukem Forever
  • Global Operations
  • IL-2 Sturmovik
  • Serious Sam: The First Encounter
  • Serious Sam: Second Encounter

There is a project thread here http://hooksutplace.freeforums.org/gamespy-masterserver-t2305.html

The new 333networks master system is an opensource project, and people are also encouraged to arrange multiple dedicated masters for their game community (much the same as you will find at the Oldunreal site, where they maintain several masters).

Anyone with questions or wanting to help, can join the IRC either here irc.synirc.net #333networks or via a web version http://cgiirc.synirc.net/?chan=%23333networks
