Hey guys,

I decided to start re-writing the core server code for MGO2. I've learned a lot since (kinda disappointed in my old self), and I wanted to improve the server in general, since the current server is complete spaghetti.

I also want to give other people the chance to contribute to the server, this will open it up a lot.

Eventually, I'd like to be able to allow people to run their own servers on their own network for testing. They will stay separate from the main server, so people won't be able to cheat on the server and have their changes flow over.

This will allow people to run their own instances for debugging the server, and to test custom maps without needing to worry about bad things happening (this would be much later down the line, though).

If you're interested in contributing, or just want to check it out:

There will be more tools and stuff to come as well, stay tuned!


Hopefully this leads to more cool stuff in the future.

I'm glad he made this move. Who's still involved with the project, is it just Ghz left?

Arcadia and I were talking about messing around with it if they ever opened it up, but now we'd need to get a CFW PS3 and that's a fuckin' nightmare.

He said something months ago about choosing Mumra to join the team but I guess that fell through so he probably has been the only one working on it for a long time now.

Oh and about PS3s. This is the cheapest one I could find from an actual reliable seller. You have to see how old their accounts are and how good the reputation is. Wouldn't trust any seller that started their account in 2016.

Didn't realize there was some MGO1 stuff available too.
