DXX-Rebirth Tracker

Yeah, I said it.

With the current trunk of Rebirth, you can create a networked game on the tracker. For this to work, you must have the game port that you host on open for UDP traffic. The Tracker will tell you if it's not open, just try starting a game, get into gameplay, and wait about ten seconds. You will get an annoying message saying bad things have happened, and most of the time it'll be a blocked port.. The rest of the time, I screwed something up.

To host a game on the tracker, start a net game just like any other. The game is tracked by default, and can be disabled in the advanced options menu. In order to join one of these games, one would search for LAN games just like any other. The tracker will give you a list of games there. Some of the F keys will provide extra functionality. F4 will give you a list of both, LAN and Tracker games, while F5 will list only LAN, and F6, only Tracker games. All of these keys also refresh the list.

For developers (mainly because KB won't let up, heh Smile) - I've provided a JSON list of games enumerated as a 2D array. Essentially it's just an array of games, and that game is an array with string-based keys, and values tied to them. I chose JSON because it's nicer than writing something myself (although I did have that, it was ugly), and many scripting languages provide bindings. Also, PHP was convenient at the time and saying I'm lazy is an understatement.

I don't check forums often, but if you like it feel free to say yay. If you figure I screwed something up (Don't worry, I figure I did too somewhere) - Drop me a line. You can send me an email through the forum here. I don't have private message notifications enabled, so if you send one and don't get a reply, bummer, heh.

Enjoy,
Matt
