Folks!
Ran into some trouble here. Followed the instructions to do the trick (copy/rename agen.exe to agey.exe and so on).
I am sure I did correctly. Game works, too.

After starting the match it doesnīt get any further than 1st main option screen. And there I am.
Btw. no crash or error message whatsoever.

Anyone knows the trick or what am I doing wrong? Alternatives?

THNX a bunch.

Alternative: use a superior, WORKING online system known as ESO.

You got a point there. I used to play there back in the day. Didnīt like all the fancy ladder/ranking stuff (and what some people make out of it) too much in the end. Donīt like that on Voobly either I guess.

Iīll consider reactivating my ESO account. Oh Lord.

STILL - if anyone knows how to fix Gameranger please holler.....!!!

Gameranger is inferior. There's no ladders anymore (they ended a few months ago and haven't come back) and it works 95% of the time (they do maintenance on Tuesdays). I don't understand why you would want to use an older, worse functioning program.

Well then. On second thought it does make a lot of sense. And if things have changed me and some other lads I occasionally play with will be (back) on ESO soonish.
Thnx for the push! Over and out.

Really? Did they say why they did it? Confused

No, they haven't. It was a few months ago i noticed, my friend said "hey let's get 2v2 ladder, the new one starts in a week" and it never restarted. Its either lack of effort, they forgot, or they simply dont care about the game.

Regardless on weekends there are 2000 people on ESO.
