Okay lads i done a bit of serching and found a Easy quick fix  for the gamespy problem  No outside tools needed
 okay   here are the steps

:Video Demonstration Of the steps Below thanx goes to{FOX}Kisumi  <3:
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_L1fTYpNX9c

1. Locate the Host file in your windows directory
:Normally located at "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC" or the dir where you installed windows

2. Open  the Hosts file with  note pad   :Note: when you do this step open notepad First in "Administrator" mode then load the host file in to it
It will look like
# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#   127.0.0.1       localhost
#   ::1             localhost

3. at the end hit space bar  and add
65.112.87.186      crysiswars.available.gamespy.com   
65.112.87.186      crysiswars.master.gamespy.com   
65.112.87.186      crysiswars.ms2.gamespy.com   
65.112.87.188      gamestats.gamespy.com     
65.112.87.186      gpcm.gamespy.com     
65.112.87.186      gpsp.gamespy.com     
65.112.87.187      peerchat.gamespy.com


4. Save

5. Enter MWLL  and Make a profile Or go to Existing profile and  change your Password to qtracker all lowercase

To Reload password log off Gamespy account "Main Menu" re-select account To enter password "qtracker" all lowercase Account name can be anything you want"Is not limited to your original Account name, However you will need to re-due any weapon groupings or setting associated with that original account

:Please note the 'Loading time" Connection to server will take longer then normal, it has not stalled I will be looking into fixing this problem by  Hosting the master Server once i have found a solution    :Note: This problem has now been fixed :) :Note:

and Bam!  game runs exsactly liek it useto  :D enjoy !

As an alternative to editing the Host file you can Download a pre done host file at the link below Besure to back up your Origonal Host file!!

It works for me. Just a bit tricky at the beginning, but then it works like before GS shutdown

Glad to hear that Burner, Now if you guys happen to fix me up with a way to Host the master server list I have a server to do that on permanently , It will handle the Handshake much faster then the Current one since it take a min to redirect you to the Server.

Things can only get  better  from here

Important:

Some security software makes some trouble, because the hostfile will be changed. Just switch it off while you are changing the file.
When its done you can switch it on again.

Nice. I wanted to start playing again yesterday, and didn't find the solution after a swift forum investigation.
The main page post is of high value.

Oh, I'll check this.

EDIT:

I can't understand this.

5. Enter MWLL  and go to profile  change your Password to qtracker all lowercase

Go to profile & change password? What? Profile don't have password.
It's just personal MP setting with specific name.

just go to profile -> make a new one -> go to Multiplayer -> Internet -> now you were asked for the login pw -> use the pw: qtracker -> connect

now you can go back to the profile and switch to your old profile. You were asked for the PW again if you choose now MP/internet, then type again: qtracker


thats all

Ok, where is your problem now ? Do you have still the problem that you canīt change the password or do you mean that you canīt connect to the server ?
Where is your Location btw. ? Starchild is from italy and he is the only guy with trouble of this fix till now.

Here were two pics of my hostfile to compare with yours:

Wow this works!  This is awesome, thank you so much.  Love playing MWLL again.  It's weird cause I literally just tried to play again today after a few months, and just so happens this post was made yesterday =P

An idea though, what about getting MWLL on GameRanger support?  I think MWLL could benefit a lot from GameRanger.  Wouldn't need to modify system files, and would probably bring about some more players too.

For those who don't know what GameRanger is, basically it's a program that lets you play old games online again, games that no longer have online or multiplayer support, like GRID and MechWarrior 3, just a couple games I use with GameRanger to play online with some friends.  It's actually pretty sweet, check it out:

EDIT:

ROFL ok, what's with the post verification process?  I typed "yes" to the question "Is MWLL the best Mechwarrior game ever?!" and it said I was wrong, so I typed "no" and THEN it let me post haha, wtf =P

I followed Starchild's install guide and used that list instead of this one. It works just as well.
