PBA Tour Bowling 2001 Is Back Online!

Post#1 » Thu Aug 11, 2016 8:41 am

Jonas Karlsson is a wizard! PBA Tour Bowling 2001 is back online! And I do mean "back" online. Even though the game was never officially released, it ran on the servers for the PC game back in the day. Regardless, I'm sure not many people actually played the Dreamcast version online so here's your chance! :D

I remember playing the game with blast from Onlineconsoles. The biggest game we got going was a 4 player match that crashed after a few rounds. The game is prone to crashes while using the ingame menus such as chat-input .

Not surprised. The chat is extremely clunky. The game has to load every time you want to type a new chat message. Not to mention the fact that you have to load the pause menu just to get to the chat in the first place. :lol:

Holy moly Jonas is the man! Do yall think Unreal Tournament is possible to restore since it also uses Gamespy?

UT didn't use GameSpy for the actual game server. It only used it for the master list.

Yeah, I thought it was suitable to give the "smaller" online games some love
before the big ones hit the scene.

Now I just need to pick a new game to get online :D
