Project "Savior" is a mod designated to increase the lifespan of AvP2 internet multiplayer games, by providing an alternate master server. The aim is also to keep the user experience the same. It will basically allow players to find and join online AvP2 multiplayer servers. What happens next is up to the players' skills.

The patch that allowed you to play AvP2 online even after Sierra shut down the master server gets a new release!

Yes, v1.2 of the master server mod is out! You can grab it here:


AvP2 Master Server Patch v1.2

The changes from the previous version:

  1. An update utility
    This version comes with a small program called AutoUpdate.exe. If you are not sure you're running the latest version, double click it. It will check if you do have the latest version, and if not, download and execute the patch to get you updated. Very easy to use.
  2. Better game client (regular players, just wanting to join a game)
    When a AvP2 Fortress server is in the list, regular players will not crash anymore when downloading the list of game servers. Also, the list of servers will download faster. This is thanks to our new Ping functionality
  3. An improved dedicated server
    We fixed the {Unknown} name for the map. We also have a better update algorithm: previously, if a server would not update it's data for more than one hour, it would be considered dead, and then removed from the list. The new dedicated server fixes that, by making sure the data get's sent more often.

The dedicated server is a simple one; old Rommie servers however should run the mod, to maintain compatibility with 1.2 clients.
So, if you want to join the mayhem:




then download the AvP2 Master Server Patch v1.2.
