Game Spy is history!

I just found out that Game Spy is no longer operational, so it will be harder for people to find our server. However I found an another site that lists OFP server status.
It is at http://stats.swec.se/ofp/servers.php

The link above does not seem to update server status except on a couple, but I have located a better solution. You will need to download and install the attached zip file named OFPMonitor_v1.7.3.2.zip. Extract it to a convenient location. Keep all the files in the same folder and make a shortcut to OFPMonitor.exe for ease of use. When you run it the first time, you should see a list of on-line OFP servers. If it does not work, go to Settings > Master servers. If the IP address 213.92.154.12 is not in the white box, Cllick "Add new server domain" and put in 213.92.154.12 If the server list does not appear after doing this, close and restart OFPMonitor.exe and the list of servers will appear. We will appear as CGS OFP Server.

If you would like the OFP built in multiplayer sever list to work once again, make the following changes in OFPMonitor:

1. Click the "Automation" tab.
2. Tick the "Automatic Detection" box.
3. Change "delay (seconds)" to 15
4. Tick the "Overwrite master server" box.

Now start (or restart) your OFP game. The Gamespy list will now work like it has before, as long as you keep OFPMonitor.exe running in the background.

I cannot thank "Poweruser" enough for taking the time to reverse engineer the Gamespy protocol while it was still up and running and write this program.

Hopefully our presence here will get even more players. As of this writing there are only 18 OFP servers known to be on line.

Now there are just 4 OFP servers left! Although there is the possibility that some others are on only part time.

And then there were three! Again, some servers may not be 24/7 like we are.

We now have the only Public version 1.96 OFP server. There is one other, but it's password protected. The third OFP server in existence is running version 1.99.

More OFP Servers Discovered! It turns out that OFPMonitor is not picking up a lot of OFP servers. We have found a website that is better:

http://kondor.armagame.pl/ofp_servers.html

As of the date and time of this message it is showing 20 active servers.

12 including us are running 1.96.
7 are running 1.99
1 is running 2.01
