Want to play SWBF Multiplayer since Gamespy Master server shutdown? Here is how.

The Gamespy servers for "internet" Starwars Battlefront got shutdown in 11/7/2012, taking away the internet option for multiplayer games.

However, there is still a way to play muliplayer by using the LAN option.

Follow this link to learn how to play using Tunngle:

What the...?! You mean last month, or July? And why didn't they warn anyone? Even EA gives a warning before shutting down servers.

P.S: I believe GameSpy isn't required to play the game online, is it? You can still set up an online game manually, I believe.

Hi Axelrd,

My date is in US format, so yes November 7, 2012 is the day the Gamespy master server went away. LAN option is the only means left to play on-line, but fortunately, we have found a home by using a Virtual LAN (VLAN) solution called Tunngle.

Direct Connection will not work, as that method also tries to connect to the master server.
