RE: [bf1942] BFVCC & BFVC3 ?Hmmm the query format seems to be the same here...

I pushed this status query to UDP port 23000 on my windows server:


and received this response:

\hostname\Jungle Of DOOM! -=BFV=-\hostport\15567\mapname\QUANG TRI ALT\gametype\

Some of the property names may have changed, but the basic mechanics of the protocol appear to be the same,... When you mentioned the new query format, is that what you ment? Or is there some other difference in the linux version from windows?

  Yes.. can you please provide us with a pointer to the new query format?
  I just need to know what to send to the server on the UDP port 23000 and hopefully the response will make sense like it (hehe) did in the 'old format'.

    you could patch the library? 

    in the hours i while away waiting for builds on my suck machine, i poked around a little bit more at the gamespy layer. the problem is that there is a hard limit for the amount of data that gets sent for the handling of an 'old query' in the version of the library we're using. 

    nobody else seemed to have done this, but the place where things get cut off is at position 2048, an odd # in the non-number theory sense, and not coincidentally the gamespy hard limit.

    we're 'not allowed' to modify gamespy code, so that's out, but can you guys just use whatever the 'new query' format is?
