I love coming back to this site every year or 2 and seeing that it's still here. Like a little nostalgia timecapsule

Basically, the progressive march of updates to HTML slowly killed it, made it incompatible to run. We technically still have it archived, but it's not really possible to browse it.

So what happened to the old site?

rion888888888888 - 02/08/2020 - 00:48

Oh NAB, I don't think I have been active in the NAB community since like 2008

Rajada - 02/07/2020 - 22:51

Indeed it does

RTSplayer - 02/07/2020 - 18:03

Oh hey this website still exists.

Ok, thanks.

I recommend the first option, as it patches multiplayer and everything.

Hello Anyone - Downloaded initial content from abandoned games. Downloaded full CP and updated from here. Can't seem to connect online - Do I need to search for servers manually? Everything about the game seems to work except connecting to the MP server. I am not super tech savvy so if anyone feels generous I'd appreciate the troubleshooting help; can't wait to reconnect with this amazing game. :lockon:

As it stands there may be no one playing multiplayer. NAB does not have any 24/7 servers at the moment, and I'm not sure when that will change.

If you have the CP, your multiplayer is likely functioning correctly. The error "Timed out talking to master server" is unfortunately used both when you have an invalid master, and when you have no servers on a valid master.

Hello TP, i do have plans for a always on server in the future, but at the moment i cannot due to inaccesibility to computer use (Parents.... -_-) and my writing of an Infiltration 2 story plan, a pt. 2 to 306, a rajadas tower backstory, and carl & the clown 2 along with other yet to be announced planned projects.... Only time will tell when things will change....


Believe it or not i'm like the Hideo Kojima of NAB, while rajada is sony.....

Thanks for the help guys! I've still enjoyed going back through all the arena's and making the Ted Twister name known. I will ask, since I was trying fairly regularly throughout the day, if there is a test I can run to ensure no servers were on vs an actual problem? :sshot:

Actually, now that you mention it, it is possible the master server got moved out from under my nose... so you can download and run this updated patcher , or if you want to fix this manually (since it's just a quick text edit), do this:

Open your directory where you installed NAB (usually Program Files/Atari/Nerf). Inside, open the System folder. Then find a file called Nerf.ini. If you can't see file extensions, it looks like a notepad usually. Open it with some text editor and search for the term "ServerActors" without the quotes. Find a line that reads: "ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerQuery". Create a blank line right below it and paste in (without the quotes):

"ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=master.oldunreal.com MasterServerPort=27900"

It doesn't matter if there are other UdpServerUplink lines below. These area all alternative servers the game uses. Save the file, close it. This should be all the masters you need to know you have at least one working connection.


Honestly, all one can do is have someone set up a server. There's a bit to it, including needing to unblock some ports on your router, so while you could set up your own dedicated server to test it, you have to be sure you set it up right. You can read up on it here:

www.nerfarena.net/index.php/help/11-nerf...do-i-set-up-a-server

I can set up a server, but during the week I don't have the luxury of being home to make sure it stays up all day, so you'll need to check every now and then.

Additionally, the server would appear here:

master.oldunreal.com/

Once again, you'll have to do the port forwarding as described here:

Ok so some progress ... If you modify the Nerf.ini and add the following into the [UBrowserAll] section then I get a server response.

ListFactories[0]=UBrowser.UBrowserGSpyFact,MasterServerAddress=master.oldunreal.com,MasterServerTCPPort=28900,MasterServerTimeout=30,Region=0,GameName=nerfarena,bCompatibleServersOnly=True

Ok so I worked out the issue, I had the non-community pack running on my server and the community pack on my home pc.

Switched to 1.2 (non-community pack) on home pc and was able to see and connect to the server.

To fix the master server, paste and copy to your nerf.ini "MasterServerPort=141.80"

The problem I had was simply mismatched version of Nerf... my server was 1.2 and I was running 1.2 CP on my desktop.

Soon as I switched my desktop to standard 1.2 it all worked a treat.

I did have to modify my Nerf.INI to change the master server still but it works, and best of all I can play again easily on my server.
