Perth, Western Australia -- March 14, 2000 -- Scott Kevill today announced that GameRanger, the Macintosh multiplayer online gaming service, now offers full SOCKS firewall proxy support, and additionally enables a number of major games to play through these firewalls.

SOCKS firewalls often prevent many Mac users from playing games over the internet from their companies' local networks. Now with the addition of SOCKS support in GameRanger, it is possible for them to join in the game discussions, audio voice chat, and even play internet games of Quake 1, QuakeWorld, Quake 2, Quake 3 Arena, Unreal and Unreal Tournament for the first time.

GameRanger was first introduced for public beta testing in July 1999 with support for 11 game titles, and had already received many rave reviews, including an award of "Best Internet Gaming Achievement" by Macworld Magazine in their 1999 Hall of Fame. GameRanger now has over 20,000 members and support for 33 popular game titles.

GameRanger is available as a free download, at <>.
