Wow, four years official Outbreak servers...
I can still remember the first steps I took together with Isles. It was only a few weeks before the official servers closed and we were in danger of running out of time. Isles was capturing packets like a maniac, I was analyzing and coding all night and we were a little bit frightened if we did enough after the servers closed. But we were rewarded with the great feeling that we're the only ones on the whole planet being able to see the online mode when the first real multiplayer session worked for us. It was EOTR and lasted about 3 or 4 minutes. Both on real PS2, buggy as f#. From there it was still a long way but we were sure everything would work in the end. Outbreak online mode would be safe forever.
I want to thank everyone actively involved in this community keeping this project alive. You, the moderators are doing a great job managing this forum! Also, I'd like to thank darkscorpius for taking over the administrative and server running part. This gave me the needed time for other projects. I enjoy the shoutbox from time to time. It's a pretty unique feature, thank you Alinho for creating this one for us.
Last but not least I encourage you all to continue playing Outbreak. You are the reason why we created this server and why it's still around. Keep on the good spirit!
