Dear MM,
pleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaase fix your Lobbyserver.
Its ok, that sometimes maps are missing or other Information of the several servers.
BUT its not acceptable that some whole Colums are missing!!!!
Of 276 servers (at 15:00:00 GTM+1) only 103 Servers have the right count of colums!!!!
plz fix this, its better to have a empty cell than no cell!!!

Cuz i was trying to make a Lobbybrowser for my kEasyJoin but the Lobbyserver's output ist just annoying.

True, I made a topic about this in the help section three months ago. It didn't really get much attention.


It seems HTF mode isn't registered somehow.

true. and it seems the lobby doesnt always keep up very well with the servers that are online.... by which i mean my server can be on and register at selfkill but not the main one... or vice versa...

Wow, how did you get those statistics? What is right column count?

I know about the HTF servers, and sometimes it's messed up but not so many.

A normal Serverinformation looks like this (6 Colums [<td>'s])
<td width="24%"><a href="soldat://"><font color="#79E958">Soldat Server</font></a></td>
<td width="37%">Info</td>
<td width="8%">DM</td>
<td width="14%">Daybreak</td>
<td width="12%">1/8

<td width="8%">1.3.0*</td>

And this is a fatal one (5 colums [<td>'s])
[code] <tr>
<td width="24%"><a href="soldat://"><font color="#79E958"><b>soldat1.frag.com.br // H</b></font></a></td>
<td width="37%">http://frag.com.br</td>
<td width="14%"></td>
<td width="12%">0/10
<td width="8%">1.3.0*</td>

I get this statistics cuz i see you weblobby statistics like
quote: Statistics:
- current (record)
Servers: 270 (400)
Players: 627 (1014)
Requests per minute: 60 (562)
Requests per hour: 4185 (8753)
Requests per day: 70791 (77834)

then i let my tool read in the webpage and he only can find mostly 100~ servers. Cuz my tool only can read in servers with the right count of the colums :/

EDIT: mmh i counted them manually and there are some more servers my tool cannot find ;O maybe my fault :P sry

also there's still the whole problem with servers not registering, unsyncing, etc etc. even with the /lobby command my servers still tail to register

November 7, 2005, 4:38 pm
oh sry it was my fault, sry i didn check it closer ;O
now my tool finds 253 of 260 :DDD

I think I managed to fix the bad columns bug, check it -> http://lobby.soldat.pl:13073/.

As for the registering of servers, it is a very strange problem. I've done a lot of testing recently and it seems that it is a bandwidth problem after all. I'm currently testing how it works with a third lobby (http://lobby.soldatserver.com:13073/). You can add "lobby.soldatserver.com" to lobby_servers.txt, however it is just for testing so there might not be all of the servers.

ahaahh no, the ??? Ping isnt a bug, its when the remote server is firewalled so it doesnt respond to your ping requests... completely offtopic.

what you really need to fix is the "unable to download map" bug cause i have it...yet people can still join my server with maps they already have (so its not firewall)

You might want to make a new thread for that, since its offoptic.

but yeah, you need to open port 23083 TCP aswell for map downloading.
