Aliens vs Predator 2 – Master Server Patch

Aliens vs Predator 2 was a game that enjoyed a long life and was fondly remembered by many fans. All those custom levels and mods really gave the game a longevity the recent games just haven’t enjoyed. Unfortunately the Master Server for Aliens vs Predator 2 was shut down sometime ago when Sierra was brought out.

Fortunately some enterprising fans created an alternate called the Master Server Patch which has recently moved home to AvPUnknown: “The MSP is an unoffical patch created by the AvP2 community that enables the user to once again play online multiplayer. AvP2’s online multiplayer will not work without this patch as the original multiplayer servers were shut down by Activision during the purchase of Sierra. The MSP was first created by Herr Alien with the help of The One of LithFAQ. The MSP was then passed on to AvPUnknown, where TBBC now contributes to its further development.”

You can download the mod from the Master Server Patch website and join in with the players and servers that are still active (and there’s quite a few!). You can find out more in our forums.

    One day....One day someone will make a film like this masterpiece that will put all the others films in second place...Aliens (1986) couldn't hold a candle to properly done film like this game. AvP 2 (2001) is absolute perfection on every aspect of action and story. One day...

    Unfortunately there are still a few who use skins like that. This should get rid of those when needed for some special servers who want to make sure they are playing a clean game. It should be possible to allow HUD skins and get rid of everything else at the same time for those special ones. And yeah, most servers work like they used to in the future, I think. Its up to the fellas running the servers.

    Just wait for the 2.1 patch. It'll come soon.. err, sometimes within near future. Just give it some time. ^^ Its going to be worth it. And for people who literally want to get rid of cheaters, theres an option to put a high crc checking on so no one can use any skins/mods/huds/anything like that.. Or atleast so I've heard.
    Skins can be used as cheats?  How so? I haven't played AVP 2 in a while but shouldn't the server already detect your game resources to see if everything checks out? Anyways if you guys are releasing a new server patch I might actually try AVP 2 MP out. It's been years since I last played it.

    'Colour' skins BRIGHT RED ALIEN WHITE ALIENS etc... on dark maps....


    The lighting model for maps and models are separate and using a negative or fullbright skins for your enemy guarantees you can shoot off someone's face literally across a map.

    I'll actually be surprised people will still try and use 'cheat skins' for a 14 year old game...


    I've posted it on the front page (and it'll post across to Facebook/Twitter too) for you.

    Thank's Hicks!!! this should get more people back into the classic AVP2 !
