This multiplayer demo is compatible with both Vietcong v1.60 and Vietcong Fist Alpha v1.60. It includes the Vietcong Fist Alpha map "Bridge" and the Vietcong map "Stream", both with all game modes.
You can join any v1.60 server (Vietcong, Vietcong Fist Alpha or Multiplayer Demo) that runs one of these two maps. Demo players can only choose the Soldier class, but they can pick up all weapons from the ground.

No it is not, but GameSpy support has ended. Vietcong now uses new master server: Qtracker. Add this line into your /etc/hosts (on your Unix system, not your Wine virtual disc):
You can also use online server list at vietcong1.eu.
Install directplay using winetricks:
See the corresponding bug report ( 33295 ) for more details. With that the (lib32-)gnutls library might be required to run the game.
