Gamespy shutting down
Posted: Wednesday, April 23rd 2014 @ 14:39 by Rexxars
Bad news for all Codename Eagle players: Gamespy is shutting down. This means that starting Codename Eagle servers will try to announce it's presence to servers which are shut down, preventing players from finding any online servers.
The only way to connect to online CE-servers will be if someone gives you the IP-address of the running server, and launch CE with a connect command, or type "connect <ip>" in the console.
An interesting alternative would be if someone had managed to alter the Codename Eagle binaries to announce to a different server. I'm not holding my breath for that to happen, however.

I've upgraded the servers page. Server list should now refresh every minute and you can now click on the server name to see a list of players on the server along with their number of frags/deaths. Any frag, score or time limit will also be displayed if one is set.
Also, there is now an "online players" panel on the right side of the front page, which should give you an easy overview of who's playing. It will not be displayed if all servers are empty.
Last but not least, I've made a hosting-page for anyone interested in hosting a game of Codename Eagle. This includes the command line needed, ports that needs to be opened etc.
Long live Codename Eagle!
CE Nation officially relaunched!

It's been five long years since CE Nation was last online. Today, it rises from the dead. Some friends and I decided it was time to dust off Codename Eagle and give it a go, and as always, it was a real blast. Took me some time to find Dafoosa's 1.43, which was a cool find. In fear of the few resources that are out there today disappearing, I put together my beloved old CE Nation.
With the launch, I also put together a little application called CE Launcher, which binds to the cneagle:// protocol and makes it easy to join a server via a website, an instant message or similar. It comes handy when using the servers page here at CE Nation, which should hopefully prove a nice alternative to Gamespy (servers are grabbed from Gamespy).
