free VPN for games that have no matching service

like Titan Quest. it used Gamespy, and that was shut down in May.

I found GameRanger and FreeLAN. I am tending towards FreeLAN since it is open source and very flexible.

if anyone wants to test let me know, or a couple others can get together and test as well.

OK, scrap FreeLAN. requires installing openssl, creating and signing certificates, and manual config files for the software. gonna be a bit beyond what most people want to do for gaming.

I wonder if Star Wars: Empire at War would work with that? Can't remember if it had a LAN option.

I did a search for Hammer and there are quite a few names with Hammer. What is your account ID# as well? (There are ID#s next to the names).

use my email address, same one as I usually email you from.

I searched for Staark, found a few, went through 'info' 'til I found you. added you to my friends list in GameRanger.
