There may be a fix.
There are  other games that use the disconnected gamespy.
One is CIV4
I saw something there that you could remove the Gamespy files. Then use windows firewall. I think i saw you guys doing that.
The main problem is Gamespy. But we need to figure out how to do that. I think some of us have.

You can also use Zulan's .
This is another game that used game spy. May not be to useful but I will just put it here in case.
https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/guide-how-to-play-civ4-or-bts-multiplayer-these-days.550513/
It contains what to do with gamespy files.
Here is another link to multiplayer after gamespy. May be helpful
http://www.realmsbeyond.net/forums/showthread.php?tid=7544

Hope something help. Don't   hate me if it does not.
Also see this http://www.pcworld.com/article/2141200/gamespy-is-shutting-down-but-it-doesnt-matter-if-youre-proactive.html

Even if this works it will be different because all games are different.

Maybe. I first found out when i look at the stuff for CIV4. And on the game spy Wikipedia page where it said it was defect.

Multiplayer RA2 blew on GameSpy. The poor latency and scheduling are why AI events became popular.

But that's not the goal most of us want. We're trying to fix it. We want to make great again in the first place.

What I am saying is to get rid of the game spy and replace it with another server. Read.

He did read, you just aren't listening. He's saying that gamespy or no gamespy, the RA2 multiplayer has horrendous latency and was poor for scheduling matches, thus BBEANS came in and made everything automated and AI'd. I'm willing to bet that just replacing the server used won't automatically fix RA2's multiplayer. Also, with CIV 4, if they managed to remove the gamespy files, i'm willing to bet it would take a Serge or Apanx to patch in Openspy, because i'm willing to bet it's coded right in the .exe, mainly because everything that we could ever want to mod is always in the ****ing .exe. (save_us.serge)
If someone wanted to try and run it through a different server, have a look at Openspy. I know basically nothing about it other than THUGPRO (Tony Hawk's Underground Pro, based off Tony Hawk's Underground 2) runs off Openspy and it works bloody well, so if you want to try it, have a go. I still think that we need to do this in a method that does not involve things like Hamachi or Gameranger.

Evolve is GameRanger alternative

TGM, do you wish to test this sometime? A good test for Evolve would be to see if we could play a half decent match: I'm in England, you are in Croatia. If this works without major lag, then we have something to work on considering it works between countries, something that is pretty impressive.

It has the capacity for VLAN Parties, so it might be able to work like the VPN Apanx has shown, but i'll be ****ed if i know. at worst it'll be an hamachi alternative.
Reigning DSL HW Champion, with 2 victories so far: One over Ty4er and one over DSC.
Runner-Up in The Cybernetic Colosseum HW division.
Semi-finalist in RNP: Sword of Glory.

You don't have to like me. You don't have to respect me fully. But you do have to acknowledge what I've achieved.

I, for one, welcome our new Apanx overlord.

We may do another server. But it may be true that it is bad. I am just trying to answer this thread. But there are no gamespy files as you said. It may be in an EXE.

It depends if I can sort out homework. I'll see if I can make it today, but no promises I'm afraid.

Looking into the RA2 network layer sounds like an interesting project…

Might give it a shot some day.

Step 3: Paint the eggs with a pitcher of a clock showing what time you want to wake up and eat pizza for breakfast.
Step 4: Put the eggs in the dough.
Step 5: Make it flat into a round shape and draw the time you want on it.
Step 6: Put some old steel to prevent other peple from stealing it.
Step 7: Make it flat and cut into 60 slices 1 for each minute in 1 our.
Step 8: Put in the oven set the timer to 30048813.2884 seconds and put the temperature on 'Volcano' setting.
