Halo PC and Halo PC : CE Servers down.

According to [url=http://games.slashdot.org/story/12/12/07/2250252/gamespys-new-owners-begin-disabling-multiplayer-without-warning?utm_source=slashdot&utm_medium=twitter]this article[/url], GameSpy (the server provider for Halo PC and Halo PC : CE) has shut down many servers. At the moment, this appears to include the servers for Halo on the PC. While this is not official, this appears to be the case. Further discussion on the topic can be found [url=http://forum.halomaps.org/index.cfm?page=topic&topicID=42025]here[/url].

  • Seriously, the Game spy program is prob is running on a 486 someone forgot is sitting under a desk in the data center. Someone with a server, ANY server contact them and move it and it will be all good. This is the thing I have dreaded for several years, some flunkie at Game Spy will be like, this box isn't doing anything and turn the damn thing off, and all the howls and gnashing of teeth won't be able to bring it back. This is the greatest game of all time and should remain as such available to all that spend the 19.91 at Walmart for it. 8 years after the fact it outsells Halo2Pc which is an abortion of a game that proves MS should stay the hell out of PC game development. I'm sorry was I ranting.

  • Interestingly, Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear are no longer supported by the original master server list hosts, but you can find games through Xfire still. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Btcc22 They rely on GameSpy.[/quote]

  • I very much doubt Halo PC servers would be shut down for at least a few more years. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Dark Hunter 2100 Well, there goes Battlefront. At least the sequel is on Steam.[/quote] All of the original Battlefront maps have downloadable Battlefront 2 versions on Filefront.com

  • What about external programs like Xfire that have their own server browser?

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Killer4785 Don't blame them for shutting down the demo though. So many people with hacks and aimbots on that game. [/quote] That's what happens when a GameSpy employee rage-quits.

  • They haven't said halo though. Halo doesn't cost money to run at all the servers rely on eachother and this costs no money at all. Gamespy are only shutting the ones that cost money down.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Dr Syx While it is worrying, it eases me to know they shut down the demo version. Reason being they must have made a conscience decision to not block the list for both base Combat Evolved and Custom Edition. It certainly has me worried about the near future (Within a year or so) but I feel like we're going to be safe for a while. Even then, someone else in the community will have a backup master server. We also hopefully have enough time to prepare the community for the switch.[/quote] I think the guys at Halo mods were talking about doing just that. In any case, we should probably make the most of the community game nights like early this year...right? RIGHT? ;)

  • They better not shut the servers down...that would be a sad day indeed. The community is still thriving, the mods are still improving. It's not like H2V where no one plays it.

  • I'm using version Halo PC v1.09 and the servers are still operating. It appears most of the usual servers are still operating. Although, if Gamespy does indeed shut down all the Halo PC servers sometime soon I will be sad. Yet all the great memories will remain. What a game.

  • Excuse me but no, Halo PC's servers are not down. Halo Trial's is blocked but Halo PC/Custom Edition are running as they always have been.
