Crysis 1 multiplayer is working on master server emulator and has been working for some time now. The original game directed players to the Gamespy master server which is no longer working. So to fix this, you will need to direct your connection for multiplayer to the master emulator. How can this be done? Simple. (1) You will need to down load the zip file Crynetwork.dll from this site: (2) You will need to open the game and find the path or location of the original crynetwork.dll. Mine is located here: D:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Bin32. (3) Find the Crynetwork.dll and replace it with the one that you just downloaded from This will redirect your game from the old Gamespy server to the new Openspy master server. (4) So now you can launch the game, create an openspy game account just like back in day when Gamespy was working. On DvD version it works.

OpenSpy seems to be very often down. Can someone fix this ? I think this is the best solution and very easy to use for Server and Client but it is not usable when the OpenSpy master is all the time down.

I see its been down for awhile Maybe down forever? I just googled and it seems somthing called GameRanger is close to OpenSpy. People state Crysis is playable with it but im not sure if that is true.. Hope OpenSpy comes back I never knew it was available till recently.

Openspy is working fine. I just started playing Crysis there and it has been up for as long as I have been playing now for two months. At this time it seems to be the best solution for anyone who wants to play or just host your own Crysis server. The bandwidth is comparable to the original Gamespy server. I've seen two Crysis servers hosted on Openspy.
