I created this thread since I noticed a lot of people have been asking lately about where to play SWGB now that the Zone is offline. So, I created this thread to answer the questions. If anyone else has any additional questions, please post them as a reply in this thread. Thanks.

Where can I play online?





GameRanger runs a great operation for SWGB, and it's become the center of multiplayer gaming for Galactic Battlegrounds and Clone Campaigns. It is very active, sometimes exceeding 100 games of GB a day! Pretty good for an older game.

They support many games via a simple, fast and efficient application that should eliminate the need for complex port forwarding. It also supports various features, such as resuming saved games.



Voobly is an online service that mimics the MSN Gaming Zone of old, but stacks numerous new features on top of it. In addition to playing GB online, Voobly also has support for features such as live-streaming, windowed-mode, widescreen, and mod support. There are just as many players and games as you'll find on GameRanger, so give them both a shot if you get the chance!

You can also connect directly to players through IP address (ex: a number like 192.168.1.100). You don't utilize any other game lobbies like GameRanger, or Voobly. Instead, you have to coordinate your game beforehand. You can do that here, if you'd like, by saying that you'd like to play a game. You'll have to give out your IP address to these people (in private), but you'll be able to choose who you play with. This can be less or more complicated than using the game lobbies. However, giving out your IP address comprises a security threat, so be careful to whom you give it!

Help



If you are new to playing games online, please search this forum. There's years worth of information and troubleshooting on this board. If you can't find what you're looking for, feel free to post a new topic. Also, if you're totally new to multiplayer, you may want to read the

If you have any questions about going online, please post them here. If you'd like to advertise a Direct IP game on our forums, please feel free to do so. Happy gaming!

I really love this game...I used to play this in msn zones, very good times...
But we don't have this anymore!!
So the best option is GameRanger, so let's play at this...
If you think that there are low number of people playing sw, stay there to increase the number!!
Let's keep this game alive!!

@Scott Kevill: Oh, im how dumb?

Can't you see that bleeding on people messes everything up and leads to the Dark Side? No, of course you can't; you're too selfish to see that just like you always were."

Hi Gabriel,

The most common way to play GB today is GameRanger. Hope that helps.

Well. Can a MAC player play SWBGCC with a PC user by using GameRanger?
And can a Mac connect to a PC with local internet?

I'm looking to start playing this game again. I was somewhat good back in MSN Zone but stopped playing when I got Jedi Academy and began to play Moviebattles II (great mod for that game I still play it up to today)

Anyway I guess you could say, based on the last like 4 games. I am a noob again since I'm not as good as I used to be, not to mention I loved Frontline which involved going into combat straight away rather than making an economy....so umm yeah ill be on daily this summer add me to play!

Gameranger is the place to play and auto sorts port forwarding etc. It also has the most active community lots of players, many of them willing to help teach RM to the newer ones.

Updated the main post. IGZones has since been changed to Voobly, and Gamespy no longer exists.

I think Voobly.com should work.
