Someone with coding skills should get to work on a starlancer server emulator. That way, we can still play if/when gamespy nukes their servers.

Starlancer is already safe, Lordnikon and co have already managed to secure the future of starlancer, so it is effectively online forever Smile

Isn't gamespy hosting the servers for it though? If so, bandwidth costs money. Companies exist for profit.
It wouldn't hurt the community to code one, would it?

Well there is no point in doing anything at the moment, whilst the game is still officially online, there is not point, just be happy with the knowledge that when starlancer does officially go offline, there will be a method of using it online again

I AM happy that I can play Starlancer online still.
Also: Packets from the official server need to be logged in order to code a server emulator. So at least the logging should be done now.

Everything that needs to be done to keep starlancer online after gamespy officially discontinues the offical service has already been done, lordnikon has already reported that he managed to set up a server completely seperatly from the official one and was able to creater and play a game, so I really don't think there is anything to worry about, the work has already been done Smile

No probs smurph, didn't have time to find it earlier but here is the thread about it Smile

http://dreamcast.onlineconsoles.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4941

Nice to know its safe isn it? So theoretically thats every game online at the moment safe for the future, apart from maximum pool, although even max pool looks to have a very promising future Twisted Evil

Anyway, sorry to have drifted off topic guys.....back to the sad but true news of F355 Sad

Cheers, Craig

Yea it is indeed said. However I emplore gamers to possibly do what it takes to setup a VS CABLE and break out a few beers and enjoy some local networked gaming. That is, if you have someone in your area who is into the DC or F355.

Yea the game was setup to configure settings before connecting, so you configure your settings and then connect. It can't find the server script, and then it disconnects you. Since the server script has been taken down.
