Don't despair though cause we have a resilient community and we've come up with a workaround so you can continue to play NOLF2 multiplayer.
If anyone is confused at all, here is some less technical guidance.
-You are going to download and install the mod.
-You are going to set your game to always start with that mod.
-You are going to be able to join the SFI UHQ servers with a double-click of your mouse.
1. Download and install the LivesForever mod. Download it from Here
---- a. Create a folder C:\Program Files\Fox\No One Lives Forever 2\Custom\Mods\LivesForever (Spelling is important so name it exactly like this LivesForever )
---- b. Extract the contents (using Winrar or other file extraction utility) of LivesForever.RAR download, when extracted you should have the LivesForever.rez file in the LiveForever folder.
---- c. Yes, you really do have to make that folder.
2. Start NOLF2 like you used to, and select the new mod.
---- a. Instead of the "Play" button, hit "custom," which is right below it.
---- b. Check the box next to the "LivesForever" Mod.
---- c. Start the game.
---- d. Close the game. Now the you have selected the mod, it will stay selected until you restart the game and deliberately unselect it.
3. Start the JoinByIP Tool.
