I do not see my server though.
Did you patch your exe with our patcher? Or did you change the hosts file only?

OK, so I tried open spy. I edited my hosts file on my XP playing computer and on the 2003 Server.
I started the server on NFO. I started my game at home.
I get hung up at the 0% and 100% values for the internet lobby. I hit cancel, then
I can see the NFO server and the FC servers. They ping at 9999.
I can not get into the PLA NFO server. I can get into the FC server.
HOSTS file is located here on windows XP:
be careful if you use Notepad to open this file, as it will make the
file name hosts.txt and you need it without the TXT exstension, just: hosts
Here is what I added to my HOSTS file:
I've been tied up all weekend, but have read the last posts about openspy.
The big questions:
-how do we advertise the transition?
-would gamespy shut down openspy?
-has the issue of patched player exe versus host file patcher been resolved?
-maybe allows direct connection again
-maybe allows mac and PC play together again
-can re-unite gameranger and tunngle players
-another transition period
-if openspy shuts down, then we are faced with yet another transition
Perhaps there is a way to get the openspy software and host it ourselves? Bandit has offered to host such a solution when this sort of idea first came up.
What does everyone think?
I have renewed our SWBFgamers.com / PLA NFO server that hosts our dedicated servers via Tunngle for the another six months. The next renewal will be in December 2013.
We are maintaining about 180-220 GB of traffic each month since Gamespy shut down (500-600 GB before the shutdown). If we maintain around the 200 GB level I will probably renew the NFO server. If we drop below 100 GB per month, I would probably host from home again.
That was quite an odyssey.
Forget that April 23rd from 2 pm to April 25 until 4:30 am happened
I learned a few things along the way. The biggest thing I learned is that we are going to stick with SMF 2.0.2
Now, I will break the forum rule about smileys:
