GameSpy Multiplayer Shutting Down, Affecting Hundreds of Games
I've been using Voobly.com for a few games that used to by hosted on GameSpy. In many cases, they've added some excellent third party patches, such as the AoE I HD fan patch @ http://www.voobly.com/pages/vi... -- features include: HD resolution support, multi-mon, new map sizes, new map types (all free).
Their AoE II support is 2nd to none, adding features like spectator mode (supporting over 100 spectators).
Microsoft Patents "Pg Up" and "Pg Dn"
But go ahead, link to a case where someone has been sucessfully sued for infringing on a software patent where the methods of implementation in question were independently developed. I'd love to see it.
