Tribes Termination.

Post by Plasmatic » Wed Jul 18, 2007 7:20 am

VUG has announced termination of support for 20 multi player titles including Tribes 1.

Official Master Server service will end the 16th of August, 2007, but community driven solutions are expected.

Stay tuned.

we could create a new master server, and then apply to a new tribes installation, for the noobs and shit... Then everyone has to change the link of their sites about the "tribes full game download", also, we need to contact every love site that is hosting the game, like www.downloads.com

nofix created a working master server ages ago. People just need to host it.

Give the the address of a working, permanant master server, and I'll make a new, pre-patched tribes installer, with master server's already put in.

I think people need to calm down a bit, and see where GarageGames takes this. I'd rather have a professional gaming company that's dedicated to the franchise hosting it.

Just my opinion.

I would agree that GarageGames would be more suited to hosting master servers for Tribes, but VUG is a molly.

Anyhow, I will be permanently hosting one master server at kigen.ath.cx:28000 regardless of if its used or not.

Does this rely on the master server? I seem to remember that it doesn't but I could be wrong...

Any list you find on the net relies on the master server. If not, it's not a true, real-time list of the active, public Tribes servers.

we'll see wat happens. I have to ask myself this: What are the odds GG will take it over? Now, lets assume they don't. Then, its gonna be up to the community. Lets see wat we can throw together.

I cannot make any promises, I have not even talked to anyone here about this yet although I am sure there will be supporters of the idea.

If you are interested please post here it will help us gauge demand.

This keeps happening. I think we just need to get a solution in place that isn't dependent upon something as unstable as VUG.

A more widely agreed source, that online communities are notoriously bad at doing..agreeing on anything.

getting their dns would be the best solution though, although theres no money in it for them, and lots of money to lose from doing it (unless they sold their rights to some kind of tribal war consortium.)
