Welcome, all far cry 2 players!
REVIVING THE ONLINE MULTIPLAYER
Far Cry 2's multiplayer mode is still played, both, online and over VPN. (VPN is what Tunngle used to be, until it shut down in 2018.) In order to play online today, most people need to use a patching utility, called 'FC2MPPatcher', that was created to fix software issues with the game that prevent players from joining servers or hosting successfully. Once the game is patched using the tool, the online mode will be functional again. This patching tool is available to download on the 'Online multiplayer patch' page, alongside instructions on how to use it. The game is also played over Virtual Private Networks in lan mode. While in the past 'Tunngle' was used for this purpose, today 'Radmin VPN' is used by the playing community. More information on this is available on the 'Multiplayer on VPN page'. Online players should also make sure they download the online map collection, as it is needed for playing on servers that host custom maps.
You're welcome to use these maps for your own sessions; the only thing asked is that you put 'Mappack1' and this website in the server's name, to make sure everyone, especially new players, understand at all times what they need to do. One simple format would be: '|Mappack1|FC2mp.com'. It should give you enough room for a unique server name, to be clearly distinguished from all the other servers. (See the picture below.)
Also, if you want to host a server with the maps regularly, please, refrain from using special characters to make your server to be on top of the match list. Let's share the game fairly.
Online and VPN
Currently, there are no ongoing matches all day long, but it's worth to check if there are players at any time. If you want to play and all the servers are empty, it is also worth to wait in a server alone for some time, as someone may join after a while when they see a server with a player and after that more can follow. The most active time currently is Europe evenings.
