TRON 2.0 Master Server Is Down (Again)

By TronFAQ on Thursday, August 26, 2010 at 10:24 AM
January 20th, 2013 UPDATE: Gamespy has dropped support for TRON 2.0. A fix for Multiplayer has been released. You will need the fix to play online.

Just a quick site update to let people know that the master server for TRON 2.0 at Gamespy is down right now. You won't be able to find or join any online Multiplayer servers for the moment. A number of other games are affected, too. So if you've noticed that you suddenly can't play TRON 2.0 online: don't worry, it's not your end. The problem is at Gamespy. I've left a message on their support forum asking them to look into it.

But don't forget that you need to install the v1.042 Patch to play online. Otherwise, even when Gamespy fix their problem you still won't see any servers because you're running an older version of the game. (You might also want to check out the Killer App Mod while you're at it.)

This is like, what? The third time in the last year they've gone down? Their service has become pretty spotty the last couple of years. Lots of downtime, and their server has often been slow to respond when you want to get a list of TRON 2.0 servers.

Today is the seventh anniversary of the game's release, no less. TRON 2.0 was released on August 26th, 2003. Great timing on Gamespy's part. :p

I'll update this article as soon as I find out the problem has been fixed.

August 27th, 2010 UPDATE: Gamespy's service still isn't working 100% correctly, but at least servers show up most of the time if you try to Join an Internet Game from within the TRON 2.0 game itself. Try refreshing the server list a few times. The down time and ongoing difficulties have been the result of Gamespy moving their servers to a new location.

August 31st, 2010 UPDATE: As of today, Gamespy's service seems to be fully working again for TRON 2.0.
