Master Server Patch for Aliens vs. Predator 2 Updated!

Alien vs. Predator Galaxy was founded back in 2002 as a resource for Sierra and Monolith’s Aliens vs. Predator so it’s a game that holds a soft spot for those of us that run this website. Unfortunately, the official multiplayer servers were taken offline some years back but thanks to the effort of a modder known as TBBC, AvP2’s multiplayer was resurrected via the Master Server Patch!

After shifting around ownership for a few years, the Master Server Patch is now back in the hands of it’s original creator and his new team, and they’ve launched an updated version of the MSP and a new retro looking website for the patch!

 Master Server Patch for Aliens vs. Predator 2 Updated!

So dust off those old copies of Aliens vs. Predator 2 and download the Master Server Patch 2.4 update and jump on to relive some of the older days of Aliens vs. Predator gaming!

    Got it working again... for a while. But not long after it would just have a little black window then not launch. I think these are just a crap-shoot with modern systems unfortunately.

    Did you download MSP 2.4 (it's the same as 2.3.4) the only difference a new stable provider was chosen.

    But to the point it fixes a lot of things, and some are for windows 10.

    Keep your game up to date ridge !

    My issues experienced were with MSP 2.4 installed.

    Well there is a console/cmd now in the msp. where you can disable/enable a lot of things.

    Look in your avp2 directory and search for readme_console.txt  :)

    Thank you so much for this post. AVP2 is still the best Alien game in my opinion. Unfortunately, my Primal Hunt game does something pretty annoying: All the cutscenes with the dialogues are cut abruptly and you don't hear the characters end their sentences. It's like they start talking and after a second it cuts to the next sentence. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Update: Never mind, i fixed it using Nvidia inspector and capping my framerate to 60fps. Now the dialouges are smooth and they end their sentences.

    Had a good time playing on the Gravel Pit server last night, there were only about 4 of us at most a match, but it was awesome to play against skilled people and switch it up between races if things get slow or jump into the exo and blow everything apart. hahaha It's great this game is a thing again, it's MP is unmatched in difficulty and it always had a good player base for it; all besides the stray streaking Dunya hack raining rockets that just pissed everybody off.  :laugh: Yeah, I'll be coming around much more often now that I've warmed up a bit.

    Great to hear it dude! you should join the official avp2 community discord sometime! all known server admins are there (including gravel pit admin) we got a stable/community after some time now.


    Tell your friends spread the word !  ;)

    Been having more troubles unfortunately. If I can get it to install, it's a gamble if it'll launch or not. And if I need to uninstall it to try again, registry files get stuck on the system preventing another reinstall.

    I end up getting this error:

    Luckily I think I was able to clear all traces of it from my system with a system restore, I want to try another install but the ordeal got me nervous.

    Just so frustrating, especially with the care that's gone into keeping this thing alive. Just seems to keep clashing with Windows 10. I really wish we'd just get a re-release that's optimized for modern systems already.

    I got it to work, turns out the firewall on the works computers wouldnt allow me to play it at work lol.

    Single player works ok on my work pc so going to play through it when I can at work, got home and installed the patch and it works online fine.

    This game is just as quick as I remember it only I'm now slower at playing lol. I used to be pretty awesome as a Predator back in 2004/2005 but I'm rusty now. Was so good playing it again though, I look forward to playing some of you soon

    just installed avp2 plus update and new patch but can't seem to get the online working.

    when I press multiplayer it says its checking for a new version then comes up saying that 'Failed version check' there maybe a problem with our verification servers.

    and claims there and error and to check I'm connected to the internet.

    Anyone here had it working yet?

    Only thing I didnt do was install primal hunt so will try that now.........



    right scratch that just seen it doesnt work with PH so not doing that. Anyone any idea? I instsalled avp2, then 1.0.9.6 update then the master patch but no luck.

    Make sure AVP2 is fully installed.

    Then install MSP 2.4

    it should be fine. no such thing as version checking failed (unless you run the older msp 2.3.3 or 2.3.4 )

    AVP2 PRIMAL HUNT ISN'T ONLINE (there are reports that it is) but TRUE PH isn't online.

    msp 2.4
