  1. All good things must end and now It's time to bring the GRAW2 online campaign to an end. We kept this game going well after it's use by date - when gamespy shutdown - and I'd like to thank all the community members that contributed to the Gamerecon project, if not for you we couldn't have payed for the services necessary to keep the game online. The gamerecon.net website will remain for the next 12 months along with it's teamspeak server and GRAW2 downloads but the launcher will be removed. -JH
  2. Support is still available for GRAW2 multiplayer HERE at my new (4 year old lol) website.
  3. Hi all, It looks like it's time to call the end to GRAW2 multiplayer. Seems like a shame because there is still some players playing but no donations coming through. If you want to play? Now might be that last time. So cool that I've been able to keep such an iconic game alive so far beyond its use by date : ) gamerecon.net
  4. What About the peak? how cool is it? Glad to hear you're enjoying it cause it, go to youtube and google "pubg rain" or fog, I swear it's the same rain from OGR but they nerfed it cause players didn't like it, the rain was way too loud, they just needed to turn it down a bit, like the planes flying over, lower volume please, cause I'm listening out for deliveries. an excellent description - the moment you make a decision you realise how many better ones you didn't make... now it's too late, you just have to deal with the consequences and change your strategy. yep, I get the odd chicken dinner with only two kills, nothing wrong with that : ) The weapon ballistics are awesome - all weapons are zeroed at 100 meters, in this video I was lucky enough to find an M416 and a kar98, then I found an eight tims scope and a suppressor. The first kill is at 450 meters but not a headshot, I needed to go a bit higher to achieve that, he only went down because he was already in an engagement and I had him flanked at 90 degrees from his attacker, he wouldent have known where it was coming from on account of the suppressor. Next kill with the Kar is at about 50 meters, not it is a headshot but I'm aiming at the neck, any higher on that one and I would have missed altogether Last two were hard because I had no front grip on the 416, it was bouncing around quite a bit so I resorted to shootin from the hip and that finally got the job done Gotta love that, it's like, see you sooooon, that is if you make it onto the next circle... don't forget to toot the horn (left click) as you drive away laughing. Here's a tip for the GR community you might not know - pressing the >insert< key will mark the map where you currently stand, it's really handy for a multitude of reasons, one of which is remembering where you left your vehicle. Look me up on steam for a game someday
  5. Hello all, I'd just like to let the ghost recon community know that the Gamerecon community, currently playing GRAW2 online together (you lucky devils) are back up after our a short two or three days of downtime. Anyone can join in the fun, there is no cost or tricks involved other than running our launcher and create an account just like you did with GameSpy. You can download all you need at our website, simply google "gamerecon - Services & Resources for Multiplayer Gaming Communities" or just click on the link in my signature below. It's been a big task to keep this system up and running and we seem to be getting some extra traffic so come get some. Enjoy!
  6. Anyone here played it? It can be more frustrating than the Battlefield series, it's got something in common with OGR though I can't quite put my finger on it, nevertheless, I thought I'd try cause I can't stop playing it... PUBG is a battle royal that's as much about desition making as it is about shooting or accuracy as you must always remain aware of the shrinking player area that can be difficult to predict, not to mention navigate, all the while scavenging for weapons, attachments, armor, health packs and yes, transport for when you need to move a long distance to remain within the player zone. It's absolutely riveting stuff when the key to being the last one standing, or lying, as the case often is at the end of a round, is not how fast you can aim your gun, not how accurate you are at throwing grenades, but how well you match your tactics with the loadout that you previously looted earlier on in the game. I won my first "chicken dinner" (round) using only a red dot sight! I kept low and chose my time to engage at close range to achieve the highest chance of success as I only had a very basic loadout, I did have a silencer and that sealed the fate of others who chose to engage me at distance with a 15x PM scope, I simply through smoke and positioned myself inside the zone waiting for him to be forced to move, it didn't turn out well for the sniper facing my fully optioned Tommy gun on auto at under twenty yards and no one heard a thing, in fact, I doubt anyone saw me apart from the lone sniper who wished he didn't. There are no two rounds that will turn out the same, you can go lone wolf or in teams of two, four or even in squads of eight with the total number of players on the map at approximately 100, however, that number drops fast because even though size of the map is huge, players tend to go to the same places where loot is known to be plentiful and shoot it out early. Others spread out purposelessly to avoid engagement, others just load up a shotgun with a chock and lay and wait for an unsuspecting looter to arrive and become the looted lol. There really is no end to the tactics you can devise in this early access game that's taking the world by storm. As far as graphics are concerned it looks somewhat like an updated version of OGR, or rather, more what I would have preferred for the GR series to have turned out, I'm not much for level up systems like BF including players lighting up all over the map and giving away positions from UAV's & drones, whatever. In PUBG you give your position away by engaging your enemy inappropriately or making mistakes, timing is everything; when to set a trap & ambush, when to loot or when to hunt, when to move and when to camp, or perhaps you'll drive? That always turns out interesting lol Anyway I rate it 9 out of ten chickens and I'm not alone, it's about to overtake CSGO as the most popular online game selling almost five million copies in five months since it's release and a hundred million in revenue. In fact, Microsoft just secured a deal with Bluehole releasing it on Xbox in an effort to kick the sh!# out of sony. Well, I'm off to play another round of PUBG, please add me on steam and team up to share in a "chicken dinner!" together.
  7. Hello Led, Gamerecon forum TS address is >> ts.gamerecon.net LINK The donate link is at the bottom of the gamerecon.net website Hope to catch up on TeamSpeak, I'll be on this weekend
  8. So true, I'm going back to seven even though I know it will only be supported for less than two more years. Truth is if I could get GRAW2 running on Ubuntu I wouldn't hesitate to run it. As time becomes less of a commodity people are turning to Linux while Windows becomes nothing less than a time vampire!
  9. Hi True, The database connection times out after a month or so - see here I have restarted the script and you should be good to go, don't hesitate to let me know if you have any other question or issues. If you get a chance please post something in our forum so we don't look like a Ghost town and while you're there think about supporting us with a little donation to help me keep this game of games alive Also... If you join our TeamSpeak server while playing it might help the community get back together again Enjoy! -JH
  10. Well done, I can't wait to play it but I have no time right now, I wish I could get people like you working on the gamerecon project. : )
  11. Original Ghost Recon in Arma 3 It looks like someone been busy, I haven't played it yet but I'll report back here once I get a chance to download it and get it on! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=871329059
  12. Hi pachanga, good to hear you still play GRAW2 once in a while. IMOP wildlands is a port and it's nothing like a GR game, so it's not surprising people still play GRAW2, by your own admission, including you. : ) Cause it is a better game than the crap they sell now in 2017 That's incorrect, it's working fine and it still gets some action. LINK TO LAUNCHER (That works if you run it as admin) Hope to see you all at gamerecon.net Best regards
  13. login_php script needed restarting, happens about once every other month should be fine now : )
  14. Before you do that have you tried running the editor in compatibility mode XP sp2? You could use VirtualBox or the windows hypervisor to manage a VM with win7
  15. Wolfseye is correct, the error is win10 not allowing access to the host file, so go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Game Recon\Launcher right click Launcher.exe and run as administrator. That should allow it to run
  16. so true... ...and I miss the hardcore TDM 32/64 player spawn camping backin' forth slather that ARMA can't provide. It's much the same story from one clan to the next, most have moved on to other titles, and why; hardcore 32/64 TDM modes, dedicated server files, mod tools & anti-cheat support. I miss the sound - the frightening anticipation of hearing players at distance sneaking up all around you with only one objective in mind, or actually getting a sense of humiliation when taken down with the sound of a deafening projectile ripping through flesh. Rather than the sensation of having a tin of paint thrown over one's head coupled by a slap in the face. For me, it seems a somewhat diminishing progression irrespective of the title or series with most modern games. Nonetheless, GRW will turn out to be quite a coop once they fix the above-mentioned issues but again, I'm troubled by my addiction to FP, TDM and have my doubts that this game will help me get over it, I will buy the game to support the series that's provided me so much inspiration, joy, and a community spirit I've loved for over a decade. I truly hope the community embrace it and moves into the future with this title. It sure looks to offer a huge amount of content with a different approach than other games, who knows, this might just change up the field. -JH
  17. Gamerecon is proud to announce a new... Server running 24/7 at a data center in San Jose That's right folks a professional GRAW2 COOP server. TDM server will follow soon.
  18. Hello all, OK, first up, let me take this opportunity to most sincerely apologize (especially those who donated) for the GRC (ghostreconconnect.net) system failing. "What went wrong?", I here you say? After hosting a pool of servers from my home for over five years on a shoestring budget something had to give and eventually it did, in trying to minimize electricity costs I shut down the slave node (physical computer) and NAS to NAS replication, which safeguards data loss in the event of hardware failure. After more than a year without rebooting the master node I thought I should service it, on reboot, the PSU failed and so did the local HDD. The disaster recovery I tried all manner of recovery techniques with mixed success but I lost too much data to recover the virtual server lists from the master node, eventually, I got too tired and stressed, I needed to have a break, so I did just that. When I returned with a fresh set of brains, to my disbelief, I managed to get the virtual machine lists from the slave node imported into the server pool and it worked, however, the GRC (GameSpy replication) virtual machine was not one of them. probably due to it never being rebooted since I instead it. The new GameSpy solution After the meltdown occurring on my home system and the associated costs hosting from home in Australia, I have created a new installation for the GameSpy alternative on a professional server in the USA.I'm moving the project forward and I will be actively looking for testers (& developers .NET C# PHP) to join - I'm comforted by the fact there are many other projects such as this (surviving on donations) centering on supporting just one game and perhaps other Gamespy games in the future. Users can also create free Clan websites as one of the gamerecon services. Gamerecon - Services & Resources for Multiplayer Gaming Communities More about gamerecon Users can play GRAW2 and also develop their own website (without needing to know how to code) but there are a few bugs, nothing major, and more service to add. Unfortunately, everyone will need to rejoin the forum, in addition, users will need to create new in-game accounts to play GRAW2 on Gamerecon. See you there. -JH
  19. Thanks for the nice comments, I hope we can keep it alive for a while longer GRAW2 will be Ten years next year.... man thats a sign of how old I have become 0-o
  20. When you install mods for GRAW2 you will need to read the README.txt file for directions to install each one
