Tribes 2 Back Online

Submitted by: EEK n IKE @ 05:49 AM | Saturday, January 3, 2009 | (url: http://www.tribes...)

On November 3rd, 2008 Vivendi shut down the official Tribes 2 listing and authentication servers. Now, the Tribes Next team has created its own authentication server that's free and easy to use, even if you didn't have an account (or CD key) before. If you or your friends have been looking to play Tribes 2 again, or for the first time, but didn't know where to begin, check out the Tribes Next patch and start playing right away.

It was mostly (if not all) done by my friend Krash, I think he's registered here as Krash123 and he just finished the website and put up the download link yesterday when I posted this. He also runs a few of the only remaining Construction servers as well as the-construct.net.

The download links are in the download section...

It's been in development for 2 months. It's in the beta phase now, so you may run into the occasional glitch. That's what the forums are for. The whole thing was done by Thyth, with a little assistance from Krash.

Last I checked, he took the auth server down temporarily to work on a critical error we found earlier today. That means you can't create a new account at the moment. You can log in if you have already created your account before it went down, though.

The aren't a lot of servers using this patch yet anyway since it was just released today. You can always still play by downloading TCMS.vl2 and starting the game in -nologin mode (AKA the LAN shortcut that comes with the game).
The Construct Forums - The-Construct Master Server
Morrow's alternate solution in the Tribes Talk forum is also acceptable and can be run at the same time as TCMS.

You may also hear about other "auth servers" like Tribes 2 Bouncer, but it has some security issues that literally can't be fixed and it probably won't stand the test of time. If you hear about something called Tribes 2 Necrosis, all that is is basically just TCMS repackaged with a new name.

In short, use [size=7]TCMS[/size] until [size=7]TribesNext[/size] is fully operational.

Auth server is now back online. Note they just released a critical update, so you will need to re-download and re-install the patch.

It's great. Just played construction mod for a bit.
