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.
Due to the stress the community driven master server placed on the machine, we had to move it to a more performant one. This however requires all game servers and game clients to update to version 1.2.3 of the master server mod.

As mentioned earlier, after Sierra pulled the plug on the master server for AvP2, we were left with one sollution: make a master server of our own.
The project was successfull, and for several months master.lithfaq.com provided the much needed functionality to keep AvP2 online.
However, the server put a lot of stress on the machine, and the only way to keep it running was to move it to a better machine. This, however, means that all game servers and game clients must now point to the new server. To help this, we have prepared the 1.2.3 version:
And yes, the transition has already started:
So upgrade to 1.2.3 and join us!
