Windows Vista and Gamespy Arcade SFC support

If you haven't noticed, you can't join game lobbies in Gamespy Arcade when using Vista (GSA needs to make a patch)

Currently, I have a work around to where Vista users can join a game lobby.. and it is quite easy..

I will post for Orion pirates now and later today I will post for SFC 1 and EAW

Make sure game is installed so that Gamespy Arcade recognizes it.

Make sure you have latest version of Gamespy Arcade

Launch Gamespy Arcade, let it scan for games.

Sign into Gamespy Arcade


To enter a game lobby. just press CNTRL + O

then put in the room URL below

SFC :

sfc:///?type=group&group=-1

SFC EAW:

strfltcmd2:///?type=group&group=-1

Orion Pirates :

sfc2op:///?type=group&group=-1

SFC 3 :

sfc3:///?type=group&group=-1


The second way to enter is to use your buddy list and join your buddies location.

anyhow I hope that this helps

Intersting as you can play SFC2 on GS and not SFC3 and it is the total opposite with the Dyna.
