The NS 2.0 dedicated server has been released! This won’t let you play NS, but it will let you host a dedicated server. Both Windows and Linux are supported. Go to the NS downloads page for mirrors, or try our sister site Readyroom.org for other links. More mirrors are being added constantly, so try back shortly if you’re unable to get through.
Releasing the dedicated server early will make sure there are plenty of servers for everyone to play on tomrrow night, when NS 2.0 is released. Many thanks to all the server operators who spend their time and money to provide a free place for the whole community to play.
