Came across this as a way to play Star Wars Battlefront 2 online, noticed that they've rescued a few game titles that have had their servers shut down.
After downloading and installing, I see a huge list of multi hosting, from Age of Empires 1 & II, Diablo 1 & II, FlatOut 2, Halo Combat Evolved & Custom Edition, etc etc.
Seems to be a no-BS, clean interface multi client with a bunch of stuff to make playing online easy (chat, hosted games lists, etc).
Thoughts? Could we have a Hard-Light list of users so we could all play together? (whether or not we got FSO support in this thing, I'm sure a bunch of use occasionally and/or frequently play legacy games here)
