Anyone can tell me, how Soldat is downloading server list? I used ngrep and found nothing. I know only one thing: this is not standard

GET / HTTP/1.1
Connection: close
Host: lobby.soldat.pl

. As i see in ngrep, this Soldat built-in request system is strange - in reply there's no names of servers! Soldat must then somehow decrypt it!

Anyone worked with this? I'm asking, because I don't want to write parser for changing all the time standard lobby page... sic!

Did you use port 13073 instead of 80?

I'm pretty sure Soldat uses another method to retrieve the servers from the lobby, but I don't know about any documentation of it.
Parsing the HTML from the frontend is easy though.

i've got an algorithm coded (php, but you could easily translate it to any other code) that breaks down the html frontend into a mysql database... but if you know anything at all you could easily modify it.

Post if you want it

there are a couple things it doesn't do, but the overall method can be expanded easily

The ingame lobby list (13073) is compressed with ZLib I think, or its BZip... cant remember which one.
