Good news, everyone.

We're not shutting down after all. But that's not the whole thing.
NTAuthority worked quite hard to push an early release date for the 37a client, so on the 10th of July, 2010, AlterIWNet 1.3.37a will be open for public testing as a beta for the upcoming 371 client.
Changes include an auto updater, a simple connect function and the Resurgence map pack!
Auto updater: This is a simple torrent/http file transferring service. It will supply you with our latest files automatically, so no more extracting archives and incorrect files refrenced.
Connect: You can now connect to your friends' lobbies with a "connect <IP>" function! For example, "connect 188.8.131.52" will connect you to a person that has created a lobby.
The Resurgence map pack: I guess this one doesn't need much explanation. The new 5 maps from IW's latest DLC will be brought to a computer near you by alterIWNet.
Sadly, the CIA, our anti-cheat, will not be released with this version. However, our cheat reports section will be re-opened the moment the client is released.
Dedicated servers, yes. I will mention that too. For now, they are working but lack remote administration, which makes them useless. We're talking to a few server providers for professional hosting solutions right now.
Some issues with the client:
ModLoader refuses to work with 37a, which means until we get native mod support working (/zone/alter) or ModLoader is updated to work with our version (highly unlikely), modded lobbies will be a rare sight.
The connect function does not seem to work if the person you're connecting to is in-game. This will probably be fixed by the time it's released. Sorry to all whom this affects.
To everyone who is thinking of using so-called hacks, please don't. It ruins the game for everyone else and it makes you look like a tool. Go cheat on IWNet, if you're VAC banned, there's always VAC Chaos. Ruin their profit, not our fun. Thank you.
That will be all for now. Thank you all for your understanding and patience toward us.
I'd like to ask all our users to stop going to MPGH and other hacking sites and flaming. This is not helping anyone, it just makes you look like idiots and us like people who can't speak for themselves.
