RON Lobby Died

Attention: RON lobby died. You can log in, chat, ect.... But no games :x

There is no RON? This made me look around for the first time in 8 years. Apparently the sun still rises. A black man is now president of the USA. My kids are grown up, married, and have other kids.... My wife got old. I got fat.

Is this real? Did I take the red pill.

WTF is happening....

Re: RON Lobby Died

Frankly, Im not sure about game ranger. Been there for 2 hours now. There are 14 active RON rooms, but I guess you cant actually join games through GR. Its only a chat site? I could chat with Octav while he was in game. Then they could tell me when the game ended and send me their IP address. But I had to launch the game and join via IP like normal. But I have not actually been able to join.

Not sure what the advantage is to GR versus just meeting in lobby and telling IP address. Maybe someone can explain....

Re: RON Lobby Died

Well some noobs don't have MSN or some other form of communication. So GR does come in handy as a chatroom to recieve an IP.

Re: RON Lobby Died

Can someone post instructions on how to use GR?

If I join games that launch directly from GR, my RON program opens, but then just goes to the opening credits. Nothing else happens. For other players, the game launches right into their game.

I also cant join direct IP games through RON itself.

But I have no problem playing and joining games in the rated lobby. Im not sure why I can play rated games but not through these other routes. Ive done the typical stuff, like firewall and router changes.

Re: RON Lobby Died

What can we do. Game ranger just doesn't have the same flavor as gamespy. it is not concentrated enough. We need a dedicated server

Re: RON Lobby Died

Well gameranger can be used to play RoN temporarily until a better solution becomes available. I managed to play a nomad game a couple of days ago with sword, supergrade and jobo, it was pretty smooth, no lag, gg..

@Fetus, if you're in a room and the host starts the game, as you said, it should go to the game directly. But if it doesn't work, go to directip wait 3-4 seconds, and the host's game should be listed. Double clicking that should allow you to join the game, unless there are version conflicts between you and the host, or other problems.

Re: RON Lobby Died

Right now ive looked at gameranger networking support - it needs UDP 16000 Port Opened...so forward it to make it working!

Re: RON Lobby Died

can you tell me what are the reasons why game spy closed. Also, we need to spread the message for the alternate server on other sites. I believe the community is reliant on new comers and if there are no new comers than it will die.

Re: RON Lobby Died

And another message from microsoft support :

Rise of Nations requires that the 34987/UDP DirectPlay port be open to play a Local Area Network (LAN) or Direct Internet multiplayer game.

Re: RON Lobby Died

I say we make a dedicated server similar to that of Empire Earth. IT is pretty successful in my opinion.

Re: RON Lobby Died

As some guy from AS said in their shoutbox...Gamespy as we have known wouldnt be ever ressurected. Rise of Nations is too hardcoded by Gamespy and men without knowledge and huge capacity will not be ever able to bring it back, unless Glue mobile makes it. Dont lose your hope, but face the real world.

I don't think its network issue. I checked into it more and Gameranger doesn't currently support windows 8 OS for any of its games. Dozens of threads with people not being able to play games with this OS.
