Re: How to Play Star Wars: Battlefront II after GameSpy Shut

Sadly the problem with these kinds of methods is many people are flat out unaware, and game store employees know little about them. Just take a look at many PC games that "die" out after official servers get pulled. It doesn't help that the PS2's online was unknown compared to even the Original Xbox...

All gamespy games didn't go down, but many did. Now all the others like SWBF2, BF2 (and BF2MC), and Midnight Club 2/3 are going down too.
