Masterserver Shutdown

Post by Neelix » 28 Apr 2014, 20:15

I'd like to inform everyone still playing this game that Gamespy has decided to stop the masterserver at the 31th of May 2014. The masterserver is responsible for players to be able to find servers in the serverlist and it has worked for over 10 years now.

So far Human Head isn't responding to any of this so it's clear that they aren't planning to support Rune (100,101), Rune Halls of Valhalla (106,107,108) and most recently Rune Classic (110) anymore. The community is currently working hard on an alternative masterserver and we have a working test environment right now. If you join any of the ER-servers right now there will be some settings implemented to your inifiles. These settings will make sure you will receive a new masterserver once the official server has been shut down. In short, all you have to do is join one of these servers and you will barely notice the masterserver-change. You will see a new newstab after joining one of these servers (Esc->Multiplayer) telling you that the new settings have been set. For everyone that's too late there will be a command that enables you to find the new masterserver. I will make a new update once we have more news.

Yes, these are troubling news. All the times I thought Rune would die and yet we still persevered. Now it seems we will meet our end at the hands of ... a server shutdown. How very sad.

Yes, so do I. Let's just hope that their solution is a good one. :roll:
