Whats the server address for StarLancer? I'm not trying to hack it or anything, just wondering where it connects to. Is it starlancer.server.gamespy.com or something? Thanks. Oh, and also, how long do we expect to have left with the official server staying online?

Theres only 1 Gamespy master adress . It sends a "encrypted <- is cracked for a long time" Im this game send me serverlist for THIS game mesage . To master.gamespy.com and gets redirected to the right server .

Masterservers stays as long Online as gamespy is still around . Or the developers request the game to be removed from the gamespy network "So far i read only 1 game have been removed in the past cant remember the name maybe judge dredd or ....."

Yes but it hasn't been released yet. I am trying to get PBA Bowling fixed before releasing it. Since Starlancer is still online and works perfectly, it buys me time to get PBA Bowling sorted out.

Starlancer connects to the following gamespy services:

master.gamespy.com
peerchat.gamespy.com

If enough time passes I am just going to release the existing build of the software so that others can figure out the last remaining issue with the lobbies. However the thing I am trying to avoid is releasing the software only to have someone fix it and not announce how they fixed it. I am one who supports releasing software and giving every user the ability to run their own servers indepently from outside control. Unfortunatly, some people when given the chance won't release software in order to monopolize it's use. I'd like to get PBA Bowling 2001 back online, and release it, rather than have someone else fix the problem and withhold information. Which would be a tragedy.

Wait why starlancer connects to peerchat.gamespy.com isnt this the IRC Adress used in Gamespy arcade ?

I asume it connects to it when opening a lobby ...
Whould be pretty stupid to let the chat rely on a external irc chat server rather then have it "peer to peer"

To bad i never could get starlancer connect over my pc dc setup even with a "own" build linevoltage simulator "A connected phone ;P where i say beep in to create more voltage" So logs ..

EDIT: Yust found a proxy server to dump allcommands that are send to this gamespy irc chat by games using it "never knew games use the gamespy irc chat ....." Now i have to beliefe it .-)
