Can anybody help me, I would like to set up a filter on ASE (All Seeing Eye) that will show non pure servers, I have been using this for about a month and I can tell a non pure server sometimes by the map or by whether the 'AllowDownload' part is set to 1 but I was wondering if there was a way of filtering these servers to make things easier and quicker.

Many thanks.

I believe you can write filters for stuff like that. But I am afraid I am not very knowledgable about that sort of thing...

Well if there is anyone who can please let me know, I am going to try Qtracker tonight and see what this is like.

I can't say about ASE, but in Qtracker one can create a custom filter by copying one already there and simply changing the variables in Notepad. Here's the page that explains how, and it's pretty easy...

http://www.qtracker.com/docs-filters.shtml

When you open the Filters>Game window in QT, click on the Organize... button to access the available filters, and open one in Notepad, then save as whatever you want to not write over the original. Then follow the instructions on the page above.

What you're looking for is a "rule" that includes the cvar variable that decides whether a server is a Pure Server or not, which I don't know. Once you find that variable, simply create a rule with it set to "0" and make sure that all of the other stuff in the file is changed to the appropriate entries, like filename and description, etc. Then when you select it in the Filters window, it should only show servers that have the cvar set to not be a pure server.

Hope that made sense... you'll figure it out. Maybe somebody will be an angel and post the actual Pure Server cvar.

sv_pure "0" //for unpure server
sv_pure "1" //for pure server

Download th All Seeing Eye here to see all 500 servers, not just the 30 in the ingame browser:

use sv_pure 0 or sv_pure 1 in filters.

It says its only a 21 day free trial, the other one costs $30.

It's a 21-day free trial, but it still works fine after 21 days. To register and activate the Buddy feature, it's $10/yr or $30/lifetime. If you want a true freeware solution, go to www.qtracker.com (http://www.qtracker.com) and get Qtracker instead.

You don't.

Is this a joke post or are you serious?

If serious, I suggest using Qtracker instead and going up about 11 posts to read my previous suggestion on how to create custom filters for QT.

This is not a joke, i tried Q-Tracker but it was to hard for my small, non-existent brain to understand so i thought ASE might be easier.

Hmmm... ok. Well I don't know what to tell ya. Maybe someone with a little more ASE experience will chime in. As far as I'm aware, there isn't a way to create custom filters in ASE... but I mostly use Qtracker. Eventually someone will create this and post it on the Qtracker site, just like was done with JK2. I've gotta say though, in the Qtracker interface just under the File menu is a button for Options, and just about every single controllable feature is accessible there.

Hopefully someone will post who knows ASE a little better.

ive tried q-tracker again, this is what i have written down in note pad.

description Pure Server
directory Pure Server
game jediknightjediacademy
active 0
filename sv_pure 0.qtf
homepage http://lucasarts.com/products/jediacademy
if mod equals "basejk"
and if sv_pure equals "0"

But it dosent seem to be working do you know what i am doing wrong? and how do you get it back to being a Q-Tracker file, it is still a notepad file.

That looks fine... now you simply need to rename the file to "sv_pure 0.qtf" and then dbl-click it to begin the installer.

Now before you say "but it is named that!," probably your system has file extensions for know file types disabled, which means that there's probably a hidden ".txt" at the end of your filename. To change this...

Open a Windows Explorer window, and select "Folder Options" from the "Tools" menu above. Once that's open, click on the "View" tab, and then make sure this option is deselected...

"Hide extensions for known file types"

And then click Apply/Ok. Now go back to your "sv_pure 0.qtf" file and see if has a ".txt" at the end. If so, right-click on the file to rename it and erase the ".txt" - you'll get a warning, but ignore it.

Now, dbl-click on the file and it should auto-install itself in Qtracker.

Personally I find both programs just as easy to use, so I don't see the big deal. Just spend some time clicking on menus and buttons and you'll figure it out eventually even without reading any documentation or tips from us.

I ran a non pure server for Halloween and have been for the last few days but hardly anyone joins. I'm guessing mainly because I'm not appearing in the in-game server browser list. Prior to Halloween my server was constantly full, meaning I probably was on the list.

Ah well...

Ive done all of that, installed it and everything but it dosent seem to make any effect to the servers, i dont suppose you know why, do you?

Akshara

Yes... you need to change that last line to this:

if mod equals "basejk"
and if rule("sv_pure") equals "0"

If you have any other problems, be sure to read this page on the Qtracker website...

I joined for a bit with the ip directly for a bit though...

Weird, because ASE always lists it for me, regardless if the in-game browser does (it rarely does).

It's been up solid all this time except for a couple of hours when it crashed the other day.

It was probably because the name was changed to "Kurgan's Trick-O-Treat"... it disappeared from my favorites (usually catches the IP switch) and didn't show up in Qtracker until I did a reload of all the servers.
