XQF and Master Server

Postby feldmann_markus » 05 Dec 2006, 19:06

Hi all,

I wish you all a nice day.

Is there a Master Server which serves the Game Server List? Like Gamespy or others?
It would be nice to play with others online?
Therefore you could use XQF as Client?
Is this implemented?

bye Markus

There was a masterserver, but sadly it went down for some reason. (We don't have contact with the author of the server and client code anymore.)
There is a new masterserver implemented, but it is not yet integrated into the client, because of problems with the current netcode and it's sheduled replacement somewhere next year.
We aim to have a new masterserver up and running for the 2.1 versions.

Quite right.

The new master server is currently at the stage of a running prototype, with limited features.
Work on it is currently on hold, until some of the uncertainty about the impeeding netcode overhaul has cleared.

@DevUrandom:
Remember we had some GNA vs. Java related licensing conserns? I believe that is going to become a non-issue as is released under the GPL in, um, January '07 IIRC.
