Thread: Gamespy is down, alternative connections here

  1. Default Gamespy is down, alternative connections here

    Gamespy appears to be down so you won't be able to join any of the multi-player sessions listed there.

    If you want an alternative method to join you might want to try direct connecting to the sessions listed here.

    (Most of these are listed on Gamespy when it's running)

    Any idea when GS will be back up?

    It won't. The plug was pulled by the new owners.

    This evening, just two months after Glu Mobile acquired GameSpy Technology from IGN, they have sent an email to participants of their GameSpy Open program informing them that it will be shuttered on December 12th, 2012.

    i think Microsoft should quit being cheap make a better more improved, profitable flight simulator....even if we would have to pay monthly for online. At-least it would get us fans away from gamespy/glu who shut the servers down recently. And have steady reliable servers that run 24/7 without getting disconnected every 5 min. since the servers are offline Microsoft should at least help its fans with replacement servers for now....msflightsim is slipping away very quickly from xplane...COME ON MICROSOFT I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT!

    Microsoft has no ties to GameSpy and are not responsible for any of this.

    They are not being cheap. Their goal is to turn a profit. No flight simulators are in the works from MS.

    There are other multiplayer servers available to everyone.

    MS could care less about xplane.

    MS is not going to do a thing.

    Now: Login --> direct connect

    So later: can't login --> no direct connect

    Right?

    But you need to login into Gamespy to direct connect.

    So later: can't login --> no direct connect
