well.. tried it again a minute ago, the server had more than 26 people on
The query stalled, no response.
I restarted the server back to empty, and the same query worked!
Is this the same thing you have been experiencing?

Oh i see... when I did that query it was empty... I'm looking at this some
more today.
By the way, is using the gamespy query the only way to determine what teams
players are on? game.listplayers does not say. Is there some other hidden
console command or anything?
It seems that BlackBagOps/Kevin had inside information for some of the stuff
his tool can do, at least pre 1.6 he could switch the mod out.. Anyone know
of a source of information on how he achieved some of that?

How many people were in your server when you did the query?  It seems to
only be missing info if there are 17+ players on it.

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
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

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?
