gamespy, and various alternatives... your opinions please.

Here's the thing; I enjoy the occassional game of UT, UT2k3, and Quake 3. I've been playing for a few years now and although I'm not the best at any of them I like to play online every once in a while.

My question for you all is that what is the best software to use to find servers for online play? I'm not a huge fan of Gamespy just because they are ever so persistent in making you pay for their services, and downloads, and clicking their banners, and all that good stuff.

Am i stuck with using gamespy, or is there some fantastic alternative that you guys know of that I don't?

I don't mind installing Gamespy if i have to, but I wanted to check before i went and started the Download and install.

UT2k3 has a collection of servers within the actual game, so it's not the problem. The main struggle is finding servers for UT and Q3.

life time subscription

i use gamespy, it is full featured and fast

the only thing tho is that i have a life time subscribtion reg code cause i bought the share ware back in the day when it was only Qspy.

Ahh the wonders of share ware, i think those 10 bucks was my best online/software purchase to date, nothing has come close to value i have gotten out of it.

I think i've heard of the ASE. From what i can recall, it was supposed to be just dandy.

i'll give it a shot, and i'm also installing gamespy 3d, just to see if it's anything like i remember it.

thanks for the input, i appriciate it.

oh, and tokaok, looks like you lucked out

I tend to use the games' respective built-in server browsers because hey, that's one less step I have to take to start playing, but I do have ASE installed and I find ASE to be much less irritating than LameSpy on those rare occasions when I do use it, because the interface is simple, minimal, and ad-free.

Yeah, I usually use the in-game browser to find games. Maybe one day I'll get ASE or just use Gamespy, but until then...I'm fine I guess.

You cannot go wrong with The All Seeing Eye. I don't use anything else, and it's worth the registration fee if you love it enough to support them. Otherwise, it works just as fine, and it's free.
