Hi,

I have OpenArena and Qtracker and everything was running fine. Recently though (I think it was recently) Qtracker changed and looked different (some new update or something) but since then I am unable to start a OpenArena game. No servers appear and I am at a loss as to what do next.

Any advice would be much appriciated.

Thanks,

Is Qtracker properly getting servers from dpmaster.deathmask.net?


(Also, I haven't used QTracker in years.  The master hasn't changed for at least a decade and qtracker shouldn't need any reason to change it now)

asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.

It's a few years I don't try qtracker updates.

However, some alternatives:
http://dpmaster.deathmask.net/?game=openarena
https://arena.sh/ (with its own -optional- launcher)
https://open-arena.tk/
The #servers channel of the OA Discord (automagically updated to show servers with humans)
The built-in server browser  (which shows ping)

Uhm... looking at https://www.qtracker.com/ the latest version is still 4.92, dated 2010... so, no updates.
I had it, so I launched it and "right click -> find internet games" results in long "Connecting to qtracker master" waits... which often ends up in getting nothing, but it got the server list once.
So, it looks like qtracker own server has got issues in these days...  It's not just an OA-related problem, at the moment it can't list Q3A servers, too.

Maybe trying to contact the author using the support form?
