Exclamation What would happen to men of war multiplayer without gamespy?

As some of us may know by now that GameSpy is shutting down on May 31.

So the question is what would happen to pass installment of the men of war series when it come to multiplayers sach as the original retail version of men of war as well as the steam version for others.

Not to mention the following series that might be affected due to gamespy shutdown.

Soldiers heroes of world war II
Faces of war
Men of war original
Men of war assault squad original
Men of war vietnam
Men of war condemned Heroes

A answer from a published or developer is needed for the retail and steam version as well as others version of the game.

I myself i'm concerned for the original retail version of men of war as my copy is not a steam version.

Note. This is posted at 1c and dms forum as there might be a different answers due to the fact of game developer from bestway to in house 1c development of the game as well as dms.

Default The information about men of war multiplayers

I have find the information in regards to my question about the men of war multiplayers.

From Steam community Posted by Instinct.

GameSpy is shutting down
GameSpy multiplayer service is shutting down at the 31st of May. After that you will not be able to play internet games through the inbuild multiplayer support. This affects all games from various developers that are based on GameSpy.

For Men of War and Men of War: Assault Squad we offer several solutions:
You can continue to play through LAN and DirectIP. (Set the IP in your multiplayer options and run LAN mode)

Alternatively, you can use GameRanger which is a 3rd party multiplayer games service that supports both games:
http://www.gameranger.com/games/


Due to technical reasons we are not able to provide Steamworks support to either game. We therefore recommend Men of War: Assault Squad 2, which also includes content of the first part.

The Steam store page will be updated accordingly soon.

Instinct alternative is GameRanger. he are my alternative tunngle or Hamachi.

I would see if i can find a workaround to make men of war work the same way as before but for the meantime this are the option we have.

Gamespy alternatives that dont require integration are no better than GameRanger. And since 1C wont lift a finger to patch out Gamespy and replace it with a better alternative.. Not like they ever cared. They stopped support for Vietnam three months after release, and Condemned Heroes didnt get even that much time. They just dont care anymore.

This is not about lifting a finger, this is about months and months of re-programming the game. As in case with Men of War Assault Squad 2 - the developers decided to transfer the game from Gamespy to Steamworks and it took them several months to achieve it. Men of War engine was always using Gamespy and changing the multiplayer components is no easy task, please bear that in mind.

1C Company will release a statement about future support of multiplayer matches in the upcoming days.
