Myth Game Server Open Source
February 7, 2002
Nothing in this world is permanent, and this must also be said of gaming servers.
Over the past five years many of you have enjoyed the thrill of playing the Myth games
online, as well as experienced the pains of a downed server or a rank reset. Ah! Memories!
The time has come, however, to bid farewell to the old and tired Myth II game server.
We are finally and officially closing the doors on the Myth gaming servers for all time.
Myth II online's last day will be Friday, February 15.
However, we realize that by doing so we leave a lot of people without a place to call
home. So, what we intend to do is give it to you. Any of you who want it. The server that
is. On this site you will find downloadable the Myth II metaserver source code. Do with it
what you will!
Want to be an admin? Go for it! Want to make your own ranking system? Everything you
need to do so is here. Have a yen for a custom WW2 server? You can make it!
This is the raw Myth II metaserver source code, stripped of a few proprietary bits of
code, but still run-able. You can modify it in any way you want and use it for most
anything you want. The only real conditions are that you don't then try to sell it
and that you leave all the copyright and other legal notices with the code. Be sure to
read the short, but very legal license agreement that comes with it before going nuts,
but afterwards, go nuts.
The Myth Vault site will serve as a central
location for the Myth game server development community, with a forum for people interested
in discussing the code and the possibilities. In the future this site may also offer links
to fan run servers, leader boards, order databases, whatever--that's all up to you.
