tailsy64: I have a question, I noticed standing on a dead alien decreases health and my character suicides. I just want to be sure this is part of the game. I did it on purpose several times since the first few times I fired down at it and died. Just want to know as I'm familiar with Aliens vs. Predator 2 (been years since I've played it), and liking that game sparked my interest in this game as well as helping beta test multiplayer.

Thanks! This will make the game a bit more interesting as I didn't recall it in AVP2. XD Again, it's been years since I've played it, so I don't remember.

I played this game quite a bit when it was first released here as a free stress test. I hardly encountered a single problem connecting.

However.. after installing the Galaxy Beta I tried to play multiplayer and doesn't work anymore. "failed to initialize", "falied to authorise" etc. Balls

*edit* Got it working again "phew" :)
I uninstalled and reinstalled the client and the game.

GOG's servers are, bizarrely, still unstable. I got kicked out of a game today with the message "You have been disconnected from the server" for no reason.
It's a year later and, unbelievably, things are actually worse. Today I got a message from someone telling me that the Steam Crossplay servers weren't working so I decided to have a look. I saw lots of servers in the browser, but none of them could be joined. Tried the same thing with the GoG version, no luck. Uninstalled and re-installed the game, then installed the Galaxy client to see if that had anything to do with it. Nope. Saw the same number of servers but they still couldn't be joined. Does the newest update to the game eliminate an auto-refresh for the server browser or something? These seem like ghost servers; servers set up a while back and then the players left, but the browser thinks they're still active. Either that or they're only joinable a certain way.

I'd really like an answer to this one because I'm tired of seeing the same message every time I try to play on GoG's servers (see attached image).

Removing LAN play from a game more than a decade old. Classy. GOG really goes with the DRM free flow.
