Description: Aliens vs. Predator 2 - Project Savior v1.2

Project "Savior" is a mod designated to increase the lifespan of AvP2 internet multiplayer games, by providing an alternate master server after the shutdown by Sierra Games. The aim is also to keep the user experience the same. It will basically allow players to find and join online AvP2 multiplayer servers. What happens next is up to the players' skills.

Updated master server patch for AvP2. Fixes crashes when an AvP2 Fortress server is online, better ping values, faster server list retrieval.


The changes from the previous version:

1. An update utility
This version comes with a small program called AutoUpdate.exe. If you are not sure you're running the latest version, double click it. It will check if you do have the latest version, and if not, download and execute the patch to get you updated. Very easy to use.
2. Better game client (regular players, just wanting to join a game)
When a AvP2 Fortress server is in the list, regular players will not crash anymore when downloading the list of game servers. Also, the list of servers will download faster. This is thanks to our new Ping functionality
3. An improved dedicated server
We fixed the {Unknown} name for the map. We also have a better update algorithm: previously, if a server would not update it's data for more than one hour, it would be considered dead, and then removed from the list. The new dedicated server fixes that, by making sure the data get's sent more often.

The dedicated server is a simple one; old Rommie servers however should run the mod, to maintain compatibility with 1.2 clients.
So, if you want to join the mayhem:
