Starlancer isn't hosted by OnlineConsoles, it's hosted by Gamespy, just like 4x4. OnlineConsoles just got a small software written by someone working at gamespy to host a server in case that gamespy stops supporting the game, but since gamespy still support it we don't need to use that private server yet and probably won't need it for many years to come.

We should have a couple days later in the month picked out for each different game. That way a lot of people can plan for the date ahead of time.

What about the 18th-21st of August? One day picked out for each game.

Perfecto for mee. I currently am only able to

PSO on, but, idk if I will be able to.

About gamespy, as far as I know gamespy still supports Unreal Tournament on Dreamcast. The only problem is that there are no dedicated servers. If you can set up a server, then it will be shown in gamespy and anybody with UT on Dc could just login and play just like Quake 3 Arena.

Well at best, the Dreamcast may see a server but without the master list, it cannot complete the log on or else the DC would have been online with UT. So the dedicated server would not make a difference. There was a failed attemp during the beginning of the year which seen some advancement, but not completion of connectivity.

GameSpy screwed us on this one.
