"Shogo: Mobile Armor Division (昇剛: モバイルアーマーディビジョン Shōgō: Mobairu āmā dibijon) is a first-person shooter video game released by Monolith Productions in 1998. It was the first game to use Monolith's flagship Lithtech engine. The game allows the player to pilot a large mech, as well as perform missions on foot."
I had intended after updating in 2019 to post something on the GOG Shogo forum but then the pandemic happened and lost track of it.
In the last couple weeks I saw that Shogo is active on Steam and there is a community around it there.
I found two sites including one on Steam listing game servers. However on trying to connect I was unable to so I am guessing they are no longer up.
Here is that info...
This site, The Gravel Pit, lists their server IP, new Shogo mod downloads including an updated anti-cheat and patch:
Then there is Shogo Servers.com: http://www.shogoservers.com/
11-10-2019 - That's right!! TWENTY-NINETEEN!!
I have returned to make an update 21 years since the game's release and 17 years since the last update!!!
Why now? I don't know. It was one of those internet rabbit holes. I ran across something about Shogo and the music and then started doing some internet searches to see what was still left after all this time.
There's very little left - no
etc. etc. The forums at
forums.planetshogo.com (oh hey look at that, some posts from me!)
One of the last sites of the old school peeps is gone. demonrage had
shogomad.com . He had a forum for us up and files and shit it was great! The last holdout! And now it's gone!!!
But I see that people are still playing it! It's now on Steam and GOG has a version. Someone released some video drivers to get it work on the latest versions of Windows. I'm running 7 so I'll have to see if I can get it to work still.
And people are still
talking about it on GOG
and there have been some retro look back articles about it in the last few years. Cool!
This got me thinking and I searched through my disk drives and found all my old Shogo files. Everything I used to use in online gameplay or for running servers.
I put them up
here. These files are for the old standalone game. Not sure if they work with the Steam or GOG version etc.
I'll have to watch my bandwidth usage and see if there is a problem with my host or not and if maybe they need to be stored somewhere else. But for now there they are!
Anyway that's what I updated. Still plenty of broken links etc but don't have time to fix that.
A new webring was created.
Check it out at the bottom. Join up! I updated my files and links pages.
I put the enhanced
maps file back in my tripod site. Tripod doesnt allow direct download
by clicking so RIGHT click on the link and save target as to download it!!!
What is the enhanced maps file?! Its a rez with all the Shogo maps
better and improved. No red riot, more weapons and better spawn points
on many maps. No tractor hooking on the sky in Entrance.
