Default 2nd Encounter Death Match Servers?

Hi Guys,

I hosted a very popular server for SS for many years and am missing it. If i download the steam version, would I expect to find active servers ?

GameSpy shut down their master server a few years ago. This is the server that tells the game where all the other servers can be found. You need to patch the game to access the new master server.

The link I posted only applies to the classic Serious Sam games (2001/2), and Serious Sam 2 (2006). Serious Sam HD should be fine on it's own.

Note that Serious Sam HD servers are different to Serious Sam Classic servers; they are not compatible.

Got it. Are either regular 2nd Encounter or the HD version active in terms of multiplayer?

Well, I found my disk but can't get it to run on Windows 10. Seems to install but you can't even start a single player game. Hangs on loading entities. Ideas?

Actually, we no longer support the patch on 42 Amsterdam. There have been too many issues with that provider so the patch we recommend is here for non-Steam version. The Steam version already has the latest patch for the master server. This only applies to the original retail games The First Encounter & The Second Encounter (re-dubbed Serious Sam Classic on Steam).

If you are using Serious Sam HD then you don't need any patches because everything is handled by Steam. So don't apply any patches to the HD games or you will break them.

Both are dead asf but I'm always up for a match you can add me on steam so we can arrange some matches, I heavily prefer the regular second encounter.
