But dont say to the rest of us who still play/want to play, to just give up, just because you've moved on, and UBI announcing end of service.

If UBI wants to shutdown the connecting aspect, that's their right.
I just like to have the ability to run the game and connect some how with dedicated servers.
Now maybe someone out there will figure how to make servers show up via LAN, or improve on the Evolve/Gameranger program for dedicated servers.
If not, well looks like it will be LAN parties for the invited few left who still enjoy playing.

But the fear of change and the inability to move on will stifle your ability to see the big picture.

Hello Guys,

For those who are not burying RVS yet, I have a good news: I am not going to let it go!

Several years ago, after rvsgaming.com went down the loss of players was noticeable, so it was expected to happen. I have been trying to contact the guys who were running rvsgaming.com in order to get the data, so I could have continued hosting it. All these years I was planning to set up a new rvsgaming but my health issues became worse some time ago thus I was unable to continue. Fortunately it is all past by now, so since it is urgent, I decided to put up an alternative website (rvsgaming.org) that would have the same use as the original rvsgaming.com with the difference that it would also allow the RVS community to have their own serverlist and player ids.

Of course I did not check with UBI yet as they are truly a pain. (I contacted them years ago about several security issues I found in the Uplay system, that may allow an attacker to compromise user details. They did not even find it important to respond, but about 2 years later others have found the same security holes too: http://www.pcgamer.com/ubisoft-accounts ... mpromised/ No comment.)

So, all I'm saying, we don't have to bury RVS, there are many ways to go:
1. Twilight has made a mod some years ago called, OpenRVS, which basically bypasses the CD key check on the server side. Due to possible copyright infringement rubbish he didn't want to release while UBI is still up. I have contacted him today, we'll see what he has to say on this.

2. We can continue hosting the RVS servelists and an alternative players account management from the new rvsgaming.org (which is one of the original goals) but it will take some time while I can put everything together.

What do you guys think? Do you want to give up here or shall we throw some frags at UBI? 8-)

Regards
Tony

I've been beta testing this with Twi. and so far the original OpenRVS failed and the revision also failed. Twi. stated, "back to the drawing board".

Good luck.
