OpenSpy is a free alternative for the former GameSpy server.

What is it for Edit

OpenSpy was developed to support online multiplayer for the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Video Game Franchise. This includes THPS3, THPS4, THUG1, THUG2 and THAW. OpenSpy previously hosted the MOTD for Tony Hawk Games that were down due to removal of the official MOTD. But in the midst of GameSpy dissolving, OpenSpy was developed further to handle the entire server structure. This also helped support online play for a number of other GameSpy compatible games.
