*While we crash and burn, small, low tech, agrarian societies such as the Hmong in the mountains of Laos will continue on without so much as blinking an eye.*

There have been a number of reports regarding the recent discontinuation of service to several online multiplayer games previously supported by GameSpy Technologies. We recognize that fans of games where the publisher has elected to discontinue GameSpy Technologies support are frustrated. However, reports that GameSpy Technologies ?shutdown servers without warning? are simply inaccurate.

Change in virtual currencies

On January 18, 2012, EA switched users from game-specific virtual currencies to a common currency in four Play4Free games. Existing balances in the current currencies were converted into the new common currency - called ?Play4Free Funds? - without loss for the customer. Affected games and currencies are:   

    Lord of Ultima - diamonds
    Battlefield Heroes - battlefunds
    Battlefield Play4Free - battlefunds

From January 18, 2012 all Play4Free games will use Play4Free Funds as the virtual currency. More information was posted on the respective games' websites at the time of change.

Quote from: somerandomguy
I downloaded the QTRACKER Software that Silent BOB had previously mentioned that he used whenever the GAMESPY Master servers were down and it does list all of the VC servers including our Clan's server "HEADHUNTERS" in that software.

My question to Silent Bob (or anyone else who might know the answer) is how are they obtaining the VC server IP's/ports in their list if they were never registered?

But this is just about the master list? You don't need Gamespy to connect to some private server or do you?

If so it would seem like my copies of BF1942 and so on are nothing but trash now. Not that I would pick them up again but I would like the possibility.


Master of Orion 2 is a really good game btw (not 3 which is in the list).
Heckling is an art, and game hacking a science.
