Hi all, just thought I'd let you know about a new multiplayer network I've created for playing Fallout Tactics (and its demo) online called GameRanger.

Basically, GameRanger makes it quick and easy to play your friends online.

It has full lobby support for over 500 different games and demos (including Fallout Tactics, of course), without the hassles and headaches that usually happen with network connections (eg. routers & firewalls).

I'm really excited to be releasing it, and hope it helps boost the Fallout Tactics community by allowing people to play that were unable to until now due to problems with opening ports, etc. The more barriers that can be removed, the more likely the community will stay strong, as new users won't be put off. You should find it far simpler than Hamachi and GSA.

You can download it at www.GameRanger.com

Oh it's real all right. smile

GameRanger has been running since 1999 on the Mac. It only opened up to PC today.

Enjoy!

There's a way better place to play Fallout Tactics. It's made by some people that used to play on GameSpy and it's called COOPnet. You can download it from HERE!!!. The community is usually around from 12pm - 4pm Eastern. Everyone's friendly, there's no ads, and we have tons of maps.

Edit: It's not gay like GameRanger.

How do you measure the gayness of a multiplayer gaming network? icon_confused2

Easily, they send you a link you have to confirm, ads, you can't type to chat unless you click into the text field, gui sucks, but other than that you can play FOT on it. That's my opinion. Everyone can play where they want.

Yeah... sorry, Scott. But this is the Fallout fanbase, and the select, more pissed off population at that.

I've been playing fallout tactics on gameranger myself lately.

I'm called popscythe on it, but there's not many people playing tactics at any given time. We should fix that!

Somebody join my tactics game!

Oh, I have no problem with that.

However, when he logs into GameRanger just to try to poach FT players for Coopnet, that's not so cool.

For the record, SniperPotato was very nice on CoopNet. But I'm gonna try your thing, Scott.
