Internet Lobby is fixed!

Post by PÕQ~Technut on Sat May 10, 2014 5:00 pm

Internet Lobby will get is fixed!

As I explained before, GameSpy is shutting down on May 31, 2014. That would mean the end of the Internet Lobby in the game, which would have a huge impact on Halo multiplayer.

I have fantastic news! It will get fixed!! You'll need to update your Halo install, but then the Lobby will work just as it always has!

Edit: See HERE for more information about the fix... it's available as of May 15!

A small group has been quietly preparing for the shutdown of the GameSpy Master Server (which provides the list of Halo servers) and they are finally ready to discuss their work. The group consists of Roger Wolfson aka Sawnose (of Bungie), Btcc22 (of HAC2), Kornman00 (of OpenSauce) and myself, Technut (of PÕQ Clan).

As a result of their work, especially Btcc22 and Roger, Bungie will be releasing version 1.0.10 of Halo PC and Halo CE soon, which will include the fix for the Lobby!

When I first heard that GameSpy was shutting down I contacted Roger at Bungie. We had corresponded before and he has always been very responsive to any issues that threatened Halo online play (his previous patches have resolved many problems). Kornman00 had also contacted Roger and the three of us started discussing what, if anything, could be done. Roger could make any changes required to the Halo client and server but we'd need a new Master Server to replace the GameSpy one.

Fortunately I knew of a couple of community members who had started work in that direction. Btcc22 and sehé°° (of SAPP) were planning to create a Master Server and unofficial patches, and Btcc22 had already made some progress on the Master Server.

I contacted Btcc22 and he agreed to share his work on the Master Server with us. It was a good fit. Btcc22 would provide the Master Server code and Bungie would host the Master Server on behalf of the community.

Btcc22 has since put many hours into completing the Master Server component and Roger has likewise put a lot of hours into preparing for the Master Server and updating the Halo client and server components (even incorporating some other fixes and suggestions from the rest of us).

Now, approximately 1 month later, the Halo community is on the verge of receiving an official patch from Bungie which will extend the life of Halo multiplayer beyond the end of GameSpy and hopefully well into the future!

Edit: See HERE for more information about the fix... it's available as of May 15!

I can't speak for Roger, but the amount of support for keeping Halo going blew me away! Over 16,000 signed! Way to go Halo community!

But for anyone who was hoping that Steam would pick it up... sorry, not happening.

You misunderstand.

They did not find a fix for H2's servers. They developed a fix for Halo 1 servers. And yes, there is a Mac patch.

We'd like to extend our thanks to all who have contributed to saving HALO from being scrapped because of the usual commercial/monetary issues. I believe HALO to be one of the best playable and fun multiplayer games ever developed, not too complicated and not too simple, offering the best balance between team action, strategy and playability. I have always tried to keep our dedicated server up and running [GM] as much as possible (running sapp) because nothing can beat the fun of the multiplayer action (I am an "unmodded" Bloodgulch fan) me and my collegues have during our lunch breaks (even if sometimes we can't join as our server is packed 16/16;) for the last decade.
A special thanks goes to Roger Wolfson who has always been available and released "aftermarket" patches for the HALO community in his spare time. Cheers man!

THANKS AGAIN!  cheers  HALO Forever!  Very Happy
