For our new visitors, I feel I need to explain some of history around SWBFspy and the one that calls himself SWBFspy Founder and CEO--a player that uses the playing names of Phobos and Rage.

This person had been a member of this community from 2009-2017.  He was always a difficult to work with, but made some useful contributions to using Tunngle and made some mod maps.

Gamespy shutdown for SWBF1 in 2012, leaving few options for on-line multiplayer.  A group in Germany led by Kalle created an opensource emulator for Gamespy called Gamemaster in 2014.  In 2016, I bought the domain name SWBFspy.com (and later SWBFspy.net) and working through Anyder and with Jedikiller, Kalle set up the Gamemaster service for us on the SWBFspy domain.

By 2017, Phobos had purchased the domain name SWBFspy.org and started setting up false websites, copied websites, and false identities for SWBFgamers.com on various social media platforms, and was then banned from this community and eventually banned from hosting games on the SWBFspy.com master server.

Since then, I, and many members of this community, have endured harassment in various forms which continues to this day.  His favorite tactic is to copy something, change the names and or dates, and then make it look like he did something first.

Attached to this post are a few screen shots of him in his own words from over the years that will calibrate the situation.

He is a next-level troll.  It is so outrageous that most people would find it hard to believe someone would do this.  But done this he has.

edit:  He is lashing out again, "banning" a lot of people from his "SWBFspy.org".  I cannot verify if his service ever worked.

Please note that this has nothing to do with be able to play on the original SWBFspy.com servers hosted by SWBFgamers.com.

Happy May the Fourth  :cheers:

The big news is that SWBF (2004) has finally released on Steam and GoG.

If you are a Steam user that is visiting us, welcome to the site.  We host SWBFspy.com  (not to be confused with SWBFspy.org and the the drama associated with that...) which is the GameMaster based replacement for GameSpy that allows us to play the original SWBF and SWBF2 on-line.

Here is the download you need to get online:
Use this for Steam/GoG SWBF1

MS maintenance tonight, 12/15/18.   Some disruptions in playing and hosting are possible.   :cheers:

PC servers are up, there will be a disruption to the PS2 servers as we set up a new DNS server.  Hang in there, it should be back in a day or two.
