Steel Lancer Arena International (SLAI) request...

Out of curiosity, due to the seemingly semi-simplicity of the game and it's functions, out of curiosity (and desperate hope) how likely would it be for one to bring SLAI back? Or would anyone be interested in such a task?

I am not familiar with the game but the only way it could come back online is if it was up originally by gamespy. Was it originally connected via gamespy ?

No, it was not hosted by Gamespy; it was hosted by Konami. However, it might still be possible to bring the game back. Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence was brought back online, and the servers were replicated by modifying reverse-engineered Pro Evolution Soccer software code. Both of those games were made by Konami, and thus had similar netcode. SLAI might use the same netcode as those games, in which case in theory it would be possible to adapt those games' server code in order to support SLAI.

I would therefore recommend for you to ask the forum users at savemgo.com about this. They might be able to help.
