1. Can I connect to IP with terminal option outside the game? Like this: ./openarena.i386 --connect IP

2. How could I use XQF with openarena? Bigest problem is geting master server for listing. Any known IPs for master server?. Than I think there would be no problem listing servers under Q3A.

Thanks for the anwsers

http://dpmaster.deathmask.net/?game=openarena


dpmaster.deathmask.net is a functional master server. You could query that. I dont think you necessarily need a master as the server list are sent to the main q3 masters so you could probably grab a list by using some filters. Here are a couple of queries I use... dunno if it'll help but I guess you are talking about pulling a list of ip's or directly connecting to the master. I used qstat and also gslist (cos I couldnt work out the filter stuff on qstat) Cheesy

system("$QstatPath -timeout 120 -nh -q3m,71,  dpmaster.deathmask.net:27950,- > $
{browser_cache}_71");

system("$QstatPath -timeout 120 -nh -q3m,70,  dpmaster.deathmask.net:27950,- > $
{browser_cache}_70");

system("gslist -q -o 5 -n quake3 -f \"(protocol = '43' OR protocol = '68') AND (
gametype LIKE 'NoGhost') AND (Mod_Build LIKE '873') \" > ${browser_cache}_874");
system("gslist -q -o 5 -n quake3 -f \"(protocol = '43') AND (gametype LIKE 'NoGh
ost') AND (Mod_Build LIKE '880') \" > ${browser_cache}_877");

I have tried dpmaster before but I wrongfully added http://dpmaster.deathmask.net/?game=openarena in XQF.

Now I added only dpmaster.deathmask.net and than filter with baseoa string

Thanks

Now I noticed that XQF is listing old (0.7.x baseoa - no 0.8.1 games!) and only few servers. I get 30 overall (with som nexius games listed) servers.

Id server lists only two 0.7.6 servers.


Any ideas?

It's probably the protocol version that isn't supported. I have a small java browser which I managed to add the new protocols but would have no idea how to do that with XQF.

What you said about the two servers showing sounds right because there are a couple of 0.7.6 servers that show in my protocol 68 listing.

You could try using JockTF's browser which is open source and python based...

He has been updating this with new stuff so it might be worth checking out and save you the time messing around. I also got poor results when using the advanced search at http://www.game-monitor.com/ Sad I guess the protocols above 68 may not get listed.

rn launcher works great. Thanks. No favorties though but great app. Maybe I will add Favorites feature in there.

BTW if I add OpenArena server to Favorites list XQF properties gets puled corectly.

XQF works fine with 0.8.1, go on Q3 Arena preferences, "options", then you can set protocol number to 71.
If i'm not wrong, SVN's version of XQF has OA support.
