You are correct.

If the master server is down and you want to play with friends you will have to give them a direct server IP.

If on LAN should be able to find it regardless. For internet hosting you need 19711 TCP/UDP (to let players join) and UDP 8911 (server visibility) forwarded. Consult your router manual on how to forward ports. If you are experiencing lag from other players joining your server, it's almost always due...

Launch with the -framelimit <number> command line. Set the number you want to max your frames at behind it. For example, if you want to cap at 60 fps add -framelimit 60

It's not at all impossible, it's quite easy if you have just a basic understanding of programming. Which is also why we had frequent issues with cheaters in multiplayer games in the past and people like Tasiin worked hard to get rid of them. The people that are still reading posts on this website lo...

Maybe you should all chip in and buy some dedicated hosting so Tos won't have to. ;)

There is no game like Giants, there are however tons of good games out there with unique gameplay features and comedy. If you didn't like Tribes I'll doubt Halo will fit the bill any better. Don't just look for games that are like Giants, look for games that are unique in their own way that appeal t...

They do care if it becomes successful and profitable since they can claim (part of the) profits. The real issue is that even if someone is handing out an unofficial sequel in violation of copyright law for free, they have to defend their copyright. If they don't, it may actually damage their ownersh...

You mean something like http://gckms.no-ip.org/lobby or the GiantsWD Server Browser? They both connect to the same chat server by the way.

Yes, the 1.497 patch and the GiantsWD Server Browser require an installation of Giants: Citizen Kabuto in order to function properly.

Make sure the game is properly installed along with the 1.497 patch. While using the GiantsWD Server Browser, go into File > Options and clear any text in the box that is next to 'path'. Next, hit the checkbox for 'Find path automatically' and hit 'Save'. After you are done with that, select a serve...

I don't fully understand what problem you are having, but I have two answers for two different problems: 1: The new GiantsWD Server Browser is hosted privately and downtime may occasionally occur, leaving you enable to join the chatroom or find any multiplayer games. Simply try again later. 2: If yo...

There is no simple way to deactivate it, you'd have to make them all transparent from what I recall. The only easy way to get rid of the HUD is to crop it out.

Well, there are plenty of games that do away with the realism nowadays. Just nothing that's really 'wacky' (like piranha guns), except maybe some indie/mobile games. The ones I named are simply the closest thing that come to Giants. Though it's not that surprising looking at the shared developer/pub...
