50 EA games soon to lose support for multiplayer online.


EA have not found any alternative to the dying Gamespy service and a large number of games thus lose multiplayer support.
Gamespy has long been a household name for gamers, as numerous games, both PC and console, had multiplayer modes built on servers.
2014 marks the notoriously late for Gamespy, which also means that hundreds of games are in danger of losing support for gaming on-line.

Many developers and publishers, including Activision, Rockstar and SEGA has announced that they are working to find alternative solutions for games that use the Gamespy servers. Similar messages came from EA, which over the years have used Gamespy for many titles, but now the company has announced that they choose to flappers support in their Gamespy games.


Technical challenges and not least the fact that most of the games that use Gamespy start pulling on the oars, located behind EA's decision to allow multiplayer support across 50 titles die out. A variety of titles, such as F1 2002, EA Sports 06 to PC or Fifa Soccer 08-10 for the Nintendo DS, has hardly many active players, but the list also contains relatively popular games like Battlefield 2, Crysis 2 and Star Wars Battlefront 2.


PC games constitute a large part of the list, but Nintendo consoles are also strongly represented. Nintendo has not gone back on its decision to allow the many DS and Wii titles that use Gamespy lose multiplayer functionality, and EA games are no exception.

Popular titles loosing online multiplayer 30th of June 2014.

Theres a light in this darkness!

As a way to work around this closure, you can use programs like hamatchi to create virtual lans gloabaly, however these free programs are designed with gamers in mind.

 

GameRanger is a free download for Mac and PC that lets you play over 600 games and demos online with friends and opponents worldwide.

GameRanger offers features like profiles, friends lists, instant messaging, in-game voice communication, and competitive ladders/rankings/ratings.

 

Tunngle is a revolutionary p2p VPN tool that delivers the best online entertainment experience.

It doesn't matter if your game is old, epic or brand new. You don't have to worry if your friends are miles away! Tunngle makes use of the games LAN mode to connect the players together.

Overall it's a shame to see so many great titles loose official multilayer support, but with strong modding communities behind these titles, their legacy will reign on for years to come.

Do you have Windows 7? Had problems with that OS, and tried compatibility mode with Windows 98 and it worked (save for random crashes during loading of some maps).

You can also try to run it unmodded (vanilla Battlefield 1942), then go to Custom Game and launch mods from there and see if it works this way.

It's a good game, really, but I don't like the lack of environmental sounds (gunshots in the distance made by other players). With mods (like Forgotten Hope and BG42), however, it can be a brilliant game with all the extra content!

Hey guys, thought I should let fellow Battlefield fans know:

I have created a petition to EA to make Battlefield 1942 either free to play or able to be bought via digital download.

Do eet! Do eet nao!

But seriously, BF1942 is no longer sold like normal, unless through E-bay, torrents or... that's it i think unless you're lucky enough to find old copies still on the shelves. This game NEEDS to be free!
