changing VPN without dropping connection

Post by handakes » Wed Mar 12, 2014 8:56 pm

Hi there,
first of all, i am not that tech savvy..so bear with me..
i am trying to use OpenVPN to bypass the region lock on an online game, but of course it's giving me lag..so my question is quite simple..
can i change from VPN connection (after i successfully log in) to Direct connection without losing my connection to the game server? because when i just disconnect i automatically get disconnected from the game and then get kicked out..
i know it's kinda of a stupid question but i just want to make sure if there is any way to this out there.

thanks in advance.

I don't think it is possible depending on the nature of your game, if it is using a persistent connection on TCP, once you change your IP address it will disconnect you for sure.
