Added, pretty cool how many useful sites SA have. I'm still looking for a software download site, one that host files such as winzip, drivers, winamp, system utilities. Tucows was not hosted locally so I had to remove it. Anyone know of such a site?
So, you got yourself a local account for very cheap or your overpriced international account just got capped eh? Well, here is some awesome sites you may not even know existed for local accounts. Mostly anything that you'll do on a daily bases can be found below. If people like it, maybe this can be sticky'd? Only the best sites are added to this list.
If you have any useful websites to contribute, please do so.
Games that work with local accounts
Warcraft III - gateway war3.co.za
Starcraft - sc.twilight.za.net
World of Warcraft - SA servers
Call of Duty 4
Dark Messiah Might & Magic - Non-VAC server
Counter-Strike Source - Non-VAC server
Day of Defeat Source - Non-VAC server
Half-Life 2 Deathmatch - Non-VAC server
Games with local servers that needs to be tested to see if it doesn't require international:
Agasa League Servers
Call of Duty UO
Call of Duty 2
Day of Defeat
Earth Special Forces
Enemy Territory Quake Wars
Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
Live for Speed
Medal of Honor Airborne
Medal of Honor Allied Assault
Neverwinter Nights 2
Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45
Team Fortress Classic
Team Fortress 2
Unreal Tournamnet 2004
Unreal Tournamnet 3
Some of these games require to log into a international site first, I think it is possible that some of these games that require international login can be played if you know the IP of the game server and try to connect that way, bypassing the international login. Thats how I connect to steam games when I'm capped.
I hate to double post in a thread, but its the only way to show its updated. I really don't want all this work gone to waist and wondered if a mod could please sticky this thread, since I and a few others think its totally worth it.
In anyway. I've added 13 new sites which is totally worth visiting.
thanks for the sticky support. I've still haven't found any good download sites, only SAIX Game Server site, which host demos and patches for the games it host servers for, but thats it. Does nobody know of a good locally hosted software site?
I've added a new site, AntRadio. This site includes 36 radio stations from South Africa. This includes Metro FM, 5FM, SA FM, Algoa FM, RSG, Radio 2000 and many more. A good contribute I think and worthy of another post.
