Announcement: IMPORTANT: Halo and the shutdown of GameSpy (May 31, 2014)
Posted: PÕQ~Technut @ Thu Apr 03, 2014 7:57 pm
IMPORTANT: Halo and the shutdown of GameSpy (May 31, 2014)

It appears that GameSpy will be shutting down their support for Halo.

As posted on the GameSpy website, they plan to end support for the GameSpy Server Lobby on
May 31, 2014.

We'd like to address your concerns and we'll try to answer any questions you have (although our information is coming from the Internet... so we don't have all the answers ourselves). We will update this post with information as we get it.

Who is GameSpy?

PoweredByGameSpy.com is the company that provides the in-game server listings when you pick Multiplayer / Internet in Halo.


What is happening with GameSpy?

GameSpy was bought by another company (glu.com) awhile ago, and that new company is now planning to shut down support for all games that still use the GameSpy services (which includes Halo PC/CE).

GameSpy had previously stopped supporting some other games, including Halo Trial (the free demo version of Halo), but they were still supporting Halo PC and Halo CE which are the versions that our Clan plays.

Now we are facing the same problem that the Halo Trial community had to deal with last year.

How does this effect Halo?

Players who currently use the in-game server list would need to use some other method to connect to Halo servers (eg. Direct IP, or Xfire, or something similar). There may even be new alternative listing services to fill the gap.

But there is little doubt that the loss of GameSpy support will impact traffic, not only to our servers but to all servers. So it will probably make for an even smaller Halo community than we already have.

How would that impact PÕQ Clan?

We will get our server addresses listed wherever possible and make our servers as easy to find and connect to as possible. In short, we will do our best to carry on supporting our servers, members and Halo players. No matter what the impact, as long is there is anybody playing Halo, PÕQ Clan intends to carry on.

What are the other methods for connecting to the Halo servers?

- Xfire Favorite Servers. Join our Xfire Server Group (classic or new site), it's the easiest way to add all our servers to your Xfire Favorites. The group is open to everyone (you'll be instantly accepted). Then joining our servers is as simple as clicking on them. And you'll automatically be updated if there are any changes or additions to our servers.
- Direct IP. Each of our servers has an IP address and an even more convenient name (eg. "pc2.poqclan.com" or "ce1.poqclan.com") that you can use to connect to the server. Simply type the server name (or IP) into Halo.
- An alternate GameSpy-type service. Some members of the Halo PC/CE community are working to create an alternate service to restore the server Lobby. Development seems to be going well. Check back before May 31 because you'll need to update your Halo or install a fix to get it working. We will include detailed instructions when it becomes available.

Should we be worried?

We're telling you about this now so that you won't be surprised if/when the GameSpy server listing stops working in Halo. We hope that it will continue to operate until at least May 31, 2014 and by then we will have provided you with further information about how to continue to play on our servers.

Any updates?

When we hear anything further we'll add new information to this post, and we'll also post links to related articles that we've found on the Internet.

Announcement: PÕQ~Storm is a Leader again!!!
Posted: PÕQ @ Wed Mar 26, 2014 9:06 pm
The Leaders of PÕQ Clan are pleased to announce that

PÕQ~Storm is returning to our Leader team!

We are excited to be able to take advantage of his prior experience as a Leader of this clan.

He first joined PÕQ Clan in early 2007 (he was one of the earliest members!) and earned a Leader position in 2009. He was a hardworking Leader who took on anything and everything, but eventually he needed to step down to spend more time on his education. Now that's behind him and he has established a business for himself, but he has time available to help out and we're glad to have his help!

Storm's skills have always made him an asset to the clan, from helping to manage and grow the clan to redesigning our website and creating many of our graphics. In fact, he has been quietly working on a project that we look forward to sharing in future.

Please join us in congratulating him on his return to a Leader position!

Announcement: Xfire nicknames / tags not showing
Posted: PÕQ~Technut @ Tue Mar 11, 2014 2:18 pm
It seems Xfire is having a strange problem... some people's nicknames are not showing. :dunno

Instead you see their username where you should see the nickname.

So if your friends names are missing or clan members appear to not have their proper PÕQ~ tagged name on Xfire... it's not you... it's not them... it's good old Xfire acting up. If you go to their Xfire profile webpage you can see that they actually do have their proper nickname set.
I don't know if there is anything we can do to fix it. I've tried logging off/on and restarting Xfire, but it hasn't helped. At this point I suggest we just wait and see if Xfire gets it fixed soon.

Edit: I think this may only be a problem if you are looking at your friend list in the old (classic) Xfire client. I don't think the new Xfire 2.0 client is showing this problem.

Edit2: I've opened a support ticket with Xfire about the broken nicknames issue.
Technut wrote:
Support Ticket #220392:
Today I noticed about 30 of our 180 members suddenly have broken nicknames.

Our clan uses a tag with an Alt character, the Õ in PÕQ~, and I suspect that Alt char is related.

They appear to be OK on the top of their Xfire profile page, but broken in their activity list. eg. (P has posted 4 new Halo: Custom Edition screenshots) when it should be (PÕQ~Newbie has posted 4 new Halo: Custom Edition screenshots).

Their nicknames also appear correctly in my friend list in the Xfire 2.0 client but in the original classic client they are listed by their username, not their nickname (presumably because their nickname has an 'error' in it).

And their nicknames are also broken when viewed at classic.xfire.com, where their profile shows the Õ as a question mark in a diamond.

This hasn't effected everyone, but it has effected a lot of our members. Nobody made any changes to cause this on our end. But a few of them, after seeing their nickname was broken, have updated their profile to re-enter their nickname and that does seem to fix it.

Did you guys do something to your database recently that changed the character encoding for nicknames??
EDIT: You can fix your own Xfire nickname by typing it in again, here:
