RIP GRAW2

GRAW2 - Blowing Helicopter

It looks like D-Day for GRAW2

Its the end of an era,

The GRAW2 database is offline, you will only be able to play single player or LAN from now on until we set up the VPN again

I feel sad that such a game could go the way of the Dodo given it easily stands up to many of today’s releases.

 

Gamediggers VPN

I can re-establish a VPN network but it takes quite a bit of work and money to set it up properly, not to mention ongoing administration,  we would then need to advertise the servers on various forums to make it worth while, otherwise you will be playing alone.

I love the game so I’m willing to do what it takes but others will need to take on some responsibility with respect to revenue raising before I can do anything  other then a 4 player network.

    Hi,

    as much (I guess), I was intrigued and disappointed to be unable to play multiplayer GRAW2 with our Gamespy account, I hope that an alternative will be found to continue to play online with our good old GRAW2!

    In the meantime, I tested with hamachi (free solution) and it works pretty well, once the server name entered Hamachi and connected, the game is launched in op LAN and voila

    (thank you to Struth)

    PS: for the other VPN solution, which amount must be reached via the donators?

    sorry for my bad English spoken, I use a translator ;)

      If we can get at least $5 a month from each player, it will not cover all expenses but it will go a long way to help. :D

    An other alternative is Game Ranger.

    Download Game Ranger and play GRAW2 multiplayer.

      Hi UD_Ghostdog,

      Thanks for posting. trouble is, Gameranger is only for 16 player peer to peer, I don’t see any support for a dedicated server?

    Sigh…. Just wished there was a warning before they shut it down….

    Or was there?

      • G _ _ E S
      • We play G _ M _ S

    @Struth
    Looks like you need to take “[AU] gamediggers.net TDM” offline for 10 mins and then restart it.
    The ingame browser of GRAW2 is not showing that server anymore. It has to do with port 13139. If that does’nt work you might consider changing the port to something more in range of GRAW2 servers……

      It did need a reboot, all fixed now, thanks for the heads-up NamHcTud

    I rooting for this game to revive mainly in multiplayer, but single player would be fine.
