Select Dedicated, then further down in the settings check online, then it will work just fine.

My guess is you use a modified game.

Do you? If not then its probably the server using a mod.

But thats my guess, not sure.

Usually when you try to reach a server and you dont have the same version thats what it says.

When its a map missing itll say ''unable to find map''

Fell strange to post here after the passing of ol mexbob..:(

I don't have a modified game, I have played graw2 on the RAS server for a few years. There should not be a difference in version. If I could find where to get the proper version, I would do that. Also, I don't think they say what the version is supposed to be that is current.

Thanks

In the server info it should say what version of the game that server is running, modded servers have the mod name displaying instead of the usual "this server is using version 1.05" which turns into "rahnman's mod v4.0" when there is a weapon mod running in the server.

Hi Tom,

Theres actually only 3 servers running on the server list, and I dont see RaS server up there.

Are you talking about the RaS clan from Argentina?
Because if its their server your talkin about, im pretty sure they shut down their server a while ago.

I dont see any GRAW2 server running on their website at the moment.

I'm talking about playing RAS server before gamespy? shut down. I believe I can now log in as usual now and active servicers will appear just as before I am rerouted to these servers under a different sponser and they should work. I think the problem is the servers that are showing up now are different from those before the original place shutdown and the game the present I have not installed their current version, ever! Example, if they presented "NOWHERE", I probably would have the correct version because I played that game all the time.

Am I on the right track? and only need to find their games and get the latest version?

You don't see constant 24/7 servers full at all time, if the online multiplayer aspect of the game is gone, that means the game is dead, doesn't matter whether its 3 servers with max 20 people using them for even organized events, the game is DEAD, I know you don't want to accept that fact, but you know its the truth.

If you played 3-4 years ago, it wasn't that bad, I saw the community dissapearing, the reasons for that? Mainly all the server admins banning people for no reason (mostly RaS server admins), I had friends who were changing IP's so they could play, one guy even made videos and was in multiple clans that were a part of surviving GRAW2 community, I talked to him and the reason why he quit was because he kept getting banned from servers because people thought he was cheating, when he clearly had video proof on youtube about how he plays, the reason I quit was mainly because I got banned for doing silly stuff (for my own fun), using 100% clearly visible positions at the edge of the map and just dominating in general.

Yes I've been saying that the game is dying for a few years, because I have been there to witness it. Ain't nothing here anymore that could save the game, the only way you could see the game being revived if some famous youtubers would promo the game without any benefit for themselves.

Perhaps you guys might keep an eye on the gamediggers.net website as we have been playing coop quite a bit on the new gameshare network. and contrary to the above comments

we have two servers running 24/7 The gamediggers community still play GRAW2 each and every week. furthermore we invite anyone who has the game to join us.

I have tried to do my best to keep the game alive, along with game/share by creating the launcher to make it somewhat easier for players to update their dns setting.

Comments such as "the game is dead" does little to encourage anyone who has recently bought the game to engage what is left of the community and undermines the efforts of gameshare.

If you can't say something positive then keep your negativity to yourself, have some respect for the boys at gameshare who have invested a huge amount of time, money and effort into reverse engineering the gamespy protocol and have done so without asking for a cent of support from those who still play it.

The truth is Blame used to get banned because he expected it was his God given right to play on servers - it cost cold hard cash to run a GRAW2 server (Not to mention the effort) and any player who is a hotshot or not needs to understand it's not a free ride

If you don't support the server and community you play on then you need to suck it up buddy, I used to get banned on many US servers but when I engaged the community concerned with a supportive attitude (Donating money) I was always well received.

Funny how money talks and Bull$hit walks

wow, struth, very well said, I have never understood why someone who was stung several years ago, just can't let it go and let those of us who continued playing the game alone, and do nothing but bad mouth the game. Great job, if I can get on a game, I will, we all know how hard it is to get things started like before. Before, I would login even if I am the only one and wait, in order to attract other players. That always worked. During slow times, players would look at the game and see no one playing and move on.

There are a lot of us that are not knowledge enough to figure things out and making it easier, which looks like you are trying to do, then we will eventually figure it out and get on board. I'm not a good player but I am competitive and enjoy playing mostly multiplayer, but enjoy coop too.

I'm not sure if you know my history, but John found out how old I was (75 at the time) and interviewed me to find out what makes me tick and compete with all those younger guys. That interview is posted somewhere on this site. Oh, I will be 80 in a few months.

Anyway, thanks, keep up the good works and it will fire up eventually, once us more ignorant, figure it out.

have a nice day...

Oh, is that so? I already mentioned the reasons behind my ban and honestly I don't care about how much money you put into a dead game, that is completely up to you and your friends/supporters only.

Everyone knows how much it costs to host any dedicated server on any game, don't make this an exception in gaming.

You're saying the game ain't dead because there are a handful of people playing every once in a while, look at the amount of people playing the game, I would really like to see the amount of new players coming the game since late 2013.

And I don't really care if this is my last time on this site. Just a quick 1 minute look every day.

Once again you missed the point! - "I don't care", "My ban", " my last time on this site " - this post is not about you!

Read - GRAW2 Multiplayer is BACK!

I know it's hard to understand as it's quite at odds to your narrow minded self centred approach and though you might find this hard to swallow - your attitude is synonymous of one who would rather others stop enjoying something that you, for whatever reason, no longer do, we call them killjoys.

Our concerns are not so much about how many players are playing or what it costs but rather how much enjoyment is had by each and every player who still chooses to play the game, that's why we go to such lengths to make it a reality, unlike some, we do care.

Time to call to account...

Oh, is that so? I already mentioned the reasons behind my ban

Yes we've heard it all before, trouble is, your assumption is inaccurate - you were banned because you failed to engage the community, nothing more and nothing less.

honestly I don't care about how much money you put into a dead game, that is completely up to you and your friends/supporters only.

Do I detect a jealous tone? lmao

dead game

Is that so? The GRAW2 launcher has been downloaded 472 times, perhaps you would like to make that 473?

Its been one of the most popular applications I have ever written and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Rocky & all the people who love this game (that includes you Blame) for without them it would not have been possible.

And I don't really care if this is my last time on this site. Just a quick 1 minute look every day.

Correct me if I'm wrong but thats a contradiction of terms if ever I have read one. lmaorotf.

G'day Tom1935,

"You are not of an age but for all time" quote - Ben Jonson

It is inspiring to see a man of such maturity engaging the internet and moreover the community : )

All the very best to you.

we will eventually figure it out and get on board. I'm not a good player but I am competitive and enjoy playing mostly multiplayer, but enjoy coop too.

Feel free to join our teamspeak server Tom and we will try to help sort out any difficulty you might be having.

I'm not sure if you know my history, but John found out how old I was (75 at the time) and interviewed me to find out what makes me tick and compete with all those younger guys. That interview is posted somewhere on this site. Oh, I will be 80 in a few months.

I'd like to see that interview, please link me up when you find it and I hope we can celebrate your 80th with a game of GRAW2 together

have a nice day...

Tom1935 :guns:

thank you sir, will do
