well, may as well make a new thread for this

http://games.slashdot.org/story/12/12/07/2250252/gamespys-new-owners-begin-disabling-multiplayer-without-warning?utm_source=slashdot&utm_medium=twitter

is this the end?
no more multiplayer matches
no more custom mp maps?

Is this really the end of an 11 year legacy?

This can't be the end.

We won't let it.

well, we can always finish up current projects before closing up shop

Firefight and Single Player maps are still possible, but I just don't think it will be the same without the multiplayer population.

Dosn't mean you can't set up your own VPN or LAN and host.

It would be a bit hard to see the servers go. I've been around for just about as long as Halo PC has been around.

I hope it doesn't get shut down and also why is some many people using the same avatar all of a sudden?

Dennis, perhaps we could have your opinion on this truly devastating subject?

I think we all knew this day would come. But it hasn't yet.

And we still can fight. Noone says we can't create our own application, if direct IP still works then it means we can use alternate servers. The interface possibly wouldn't look the same but this is Halo Custom Edition. We have all the UI files and so I'm sure there is a work around. We just have to work our ass into doing it.

I'm sure a 3rd party app can be used to link Hosts to Clients. Even xFire does it in some ways

Its like we just got OS and now we won't be able to use the neat multiplayer setting from it.

As the Master of all Masters I command you to stop. And we need to have a NMC/Wartorn Cove game night before it gets shut down.

Master 34, just shut up.

Well, as Cortana said, This is the way it ends. Not exact, but you get the point.

I swear I'm not master 34 or 37 or 1336 or 1337

Sure, sure. We all totally believe you.

I have no idea what the relationship or contractual agreements are between Microsoft and Gamespy and until there is an official notification that they are discontinuing service to the game I am not going to get my panties in a bunch over it. However I suspect that with the release of Halo anniversary and Halo 4 it would be bad press to have the PC version of original game suddenly be shut off.

If Halo CE MP dies, so does CE itself. If CE dies, what happens to halomaps?...

Almost certain that if the gamespy servers do close down, there'll be a new community host up within a month at the longest. I'm pretty sure someone around here actually worked out how the Gamespy servers work and already tested a replacement. Can't recall who it was though.

Even if multiplayer disappears, there is single player, and potential of emulating a multiplayer experience through AI bots. So saying that Halo: CE will die without multiplayer isn't necessarily true, but it would still be a huge blow to the community. Hopefully it doesn't happen any time soon.

I'm sure with some work we could be able to get some type of third party application to run the server lists. I'm sure it's possible as even Xfire is able to do this to an extent.

Hello. I want to play a game. Gamespy is shutting down their servers pretty soon, and your childhood memory toys are spread out all over this complex... but you have to find all of them. Better hurry though, the servers will close in 5 minutes.


Let the game begin.
