TribesNext have released a patch (and a full free download!) to work around the shutting down of the login servers for Tribes 2 in late 2008, so it's now finally possible to play again.

The patch also fixes the sierra update errors that were intentionally created and means that new accounts no longer require a CD key (Vivendi gave the game away for free to promote a sequel but stopped giving out keys and shut down the servers even for those that originally bought the game back in 2001 when it was released).

Now I'm just hoping that someone can update the engine to the latest version of the Torque engine from Garage Games (this is the game that gave me the incentive to buy a license for it originally).
