NuWON Official Supports Original AVP2 and Primal hunt WON.NET Multiplayer

Hey there,

I am Ben and I am the developer and owner or NuWON.

NuWON is a remake of the original Sierra Owned World Opponent Network (WON.Net).

The project has been up since 2014 and has slowly been worked on to ensure all games work as they are intended.

As of today I am releasing the NuWON patch for AVP2 and very shortly Primal Hunt.
The network supports nearly all original WON.Net Games.

This simple patch just adds the 1.0.9.6 avp2 nocd and avp2dlls.rez edited to retrieve the NuWON MOTD
along with an updated sierraup.exe and sierraup.cfg for connecting to NuWON

This patch will allow you to use the original internet multiplayer menu as was intended.
^LINK REMOVED^


If you have any questions or comments please feel free to PM me here or on the nuwon website!

I'm the provider of the master server patch for this game. As well as x-M-x. (http://www.avp2msp.com) There is already a patch. Plenty of people play on it. Releasing another separate patch will do nothing except divide this community (assuming you've even actually made one, I tried to visit your site and got a warning of a revoked security certificate, so at first glance this seems very suspicious).

Our patch adds many improvements and proper server functionality and foolproof hack detection. Going back to vanilla 1.0.9.6 would just be a step down. Thanks but no thanks.

Hello ben5015se

We're not sure what you're tying to achieve.. but Aliens vs. Predator 2 has been online since 2008
(when the sierra servers where shut down)

We're currently at 50+ servers and with a strong playerbase!

We also have an official avp2 community discord with over 1300+ members Why not stop by?

https://discord.gg/hHqYPWA

Master server patch has come along way the past 11 years from 1.0 all the way to 2.4.
(and a new upcoming release 2.4.1) with more hot fixes and anti hack protection.


We're also an established community site for the past 15 years offering skins/mods/maps and of course master server patch support.

Our work here

I had no idea,  I am just going through each won.net game one by one and changing where it connects and making sure it works.

The goal of the project is to get every game to work, so far about 80% of the games that work on WON.Net also work with NuWON.

Since you guys have one already, avp2 will be able to connect as long as nuwon is alive. it wont be a focus of mine.

as for the website ssl certificate, it expired last week, im fixing it now.
