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.

HowTo / Notes

The game crashes after start (when loading some 3D scene)

You can install VCStarter v1.7 BETA (more info at ), apply patch from 39057 or use Wine-Staging. See the corresponding bug report ( 9337 ) for more details.

There are no servers found in in-game server list. Is Vietcong MP dead?

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):
