GameSpy is over soon

As known, GameSpy has decided to shut down servers supporting multiplayer in hundreds of games. This is going to happen on May 31. Obviously, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. will be affected as well.

We are looking for a solution which will be our own service that will implement some of the GameSpy protocols. Beta version is already in our labs. We encourage all players and operators of game servers to become beta testers.

To start using our server, update libraties "xrGameSpy.dll" both in client and server side.

Download resources:

Call Of Pripyat - http://files.gsc-game.com/stk-gs-patches/COP-GameSpy.zip
Clear Sky - http://files.gsc-game.com/stk-gs-patches/CS-GameSpy.zip
Shadow of Chernobyl - http://files.gsc-game.com/stk-gs-patches/SHOC-GameSpy.zip

Before rewriting the existing *dll file, it's highly recommended to save or rename it. Known bugs in "CoP" include partially functioning profile system, and non-functioning stats.

Alternatively, you can run universal patch from official page at http://www.stalker-game.com/en/?page=patches

You are welcome to post your questions, requests and bugs (yeah, we're not perfect) to this thread or submit them to gamespy [at] gsc-game.com.

Hey, nice to see you post here. Just a tip, though: many people ignore stickied threads. They are useful for preventing important information from sinking in active sections, but actually counterproductive for drawing attention. What would get people to notice is some indication that this is a message from GSC in the thread title.

Very Very Very Thank you for make New Masterserver.

I play and make server since +5 years in stalker shoc, for me and other is this the maingame.

I am very thankful when you can answer on my questions.


Who is owner of new masterserver ?
All make GSC by himself ?


How long will New Masterserver Online ?
is planned for the next Years ?


I have tested, new Masterserver work, serverlist is empty, but make new server, this is listed, and connecting work. (only tested shoc)


one problem, with changed xrgamspy.dll i can not more connect with direct IP to server with old xrgamspy.dll
! client : connection rejected - <Data verification failed. Cheater? [3]>
is possible resolve this problem ?


is planned a next step after release the new xrgamespy.dll ?
will be later realease a new patch, 1.0007 example ?, or only this new dll file ?


It is possible redirect "stalkersc.ms0.gamespy.com" + "stalkersc.master.gamespy.com" to new masterserver without dll change ?
this is the best variant, or we will lost much gamer. (many comes only from buy game and look later to MP)
I am willing pay much money for redirect the old domains to new masterserver without dll change.

GSC Game owns this server and plans to support it for at least when the game is available on the Steam and retail.

We also plan to extend it for supporting other our games which use GameSpy - 1st Cossacks series.

As for the "cheater". STALKER verifies everyone has the same dll to prevent basic cheating. If all have a new updated dll, there will be no errors.

Next steps. If everything goes ok, we'll release a public patch on the site and put an automatic update to Steam.

DNS - yep, it will be the best solution ever, but we do not own gamespy.com domain. According to WHOIS records it will expire only at 2015-05-01 and I think they can prolong it, so no one can buy it.

Also we'll release a patch soon for resolving extra high FPS issues on a new Radeon R9 200x video cards.

Very Thank you for answer, this sounds great.

on a new patch is only update to new masterserver ?
or is planned resolve any bugs, example medikit crash ?
i hope not change any gameplay in shoc, example please not remove lean Left or right (This is removed in MP from CS and COP)

is release of patch planned for beginning of june, or later and need more time ?

Yes, gamespy.com domain buy not possible, but i think possible make any deal with domain owner for redirect only the stalker subdomains to new masterserver.
DNS Owner not more need this subdomains, and for this i am willing to pay.

Do you plan to update the Steam version of Cossacks 2 Napoleonic Wars from 1.1 to 1.2?
1.2 is the latest version and it comes with a lot of bug fixes.

While GameSpy is alive, GSC server will display both it's own list and a copy from GameSpy.
