After the demise of JediServers I decided to write a server tracker for my clan. I am now offering for use by the JA masses.

Find out more about it here:

If this is considered SPAM I apologize and I won't post about it again.

Looks good so far.

Can you put some icons on the front or something that indicate what weapons/force are available (sort of like what Jediservers had)?

Running through the cvar list is fine, but it's a little quicker and nicer too if you can see "okay that's got guns" or "that's got all force."

Etc. Course if you do that, be sure you include the JA weapons, and not just the JK2 ones (remember the Concussion Rifle, BlasTech, Melee).

Nice work!

very nice. Symbols for all weapons/saber only would be cool. Maybe an exclamation mark for abusing admins

hehe
i also made one some weeks ago
but this is a tracker specialized in JA+ mod

of course it works also well with other mods or basejka
So [USA]-bLaSt, if your website has not a connection enough good to get a lot of servers requests that links your tracker website,
you can also use mine

i think with our both websites and 2 trackers, it would enable to provide to the community a good feature for their servers...

Indeed you and me cannot provide tracker to a lot of different servers,,...., so it is nice to be several website to provide those services..


mine is available here
it is fully costomizable with colors
you can generate the HTML code with your colors here

Slider, on yours, is the Bryar Pistol just the DL-44 pistol?

heu hehe
i am not a specialist in weapons
i really don't see what DL-44 pistol is?

could you test with weapons disable ?

i use in the PHP code for weapon disable setting the same data that are coded in the game made by raven
so it should be good....

The DL-44 pistol is the unlimited-ammo weapon that you always have, unless the server disabled it.

You no longer get the Bryar Pistol unless the map has it as a pick-up, or you use "giveall".

haha yes i see
no this is not this weapon
the bryar is really the one showed in the pictures of my tracker
i think your pistol is auto given to player as soon as the server is not saber only

no?

If the server does not disable the DL-44 pistol, you always spawn with it, yes.

Actually... I have loads of bandwidth... I just want to know who is using it.

Color customization will be along shortly. I don't know if I'll ever implement the weapons/force graphics as they're not something I normally use myself, but I can see how it would be nice.

I think this is what people are talking about. This is from www.jk3servers.com

Shortly before jediservers died, they updated their tracker to display the proper JA weapons. Most (all) other JA trackers I've seen just list the JK2 weapons.

Differences:


JA has the BlasTech pistol (replaces Bryar).
JA has Melee (fists) which replaces Stun Baton.
JA has Concussion Rifle.

The Jediservers tracker also added "Emplaced Gun" and "Turret Gun" which were a bit confusing for me, because they showed the AT-ST main gun (rather than what I call an emplaced gun, which is that blaster turret you can man on Hoth Siege and CTF) and the EWEB for "Turret Gun" (does this mean that in Siege those classes can't use it if you have it disabled?).


In JA, you can NOT use the Stun Baton or Bryar unless you are playing a mod that adds them to the map or Siege class, or if you are using cheats to add them back in the game.

But the tracker makers have taken the shortcut of just using the JK2 stuff, thus being inaccurate...

The Turret Gun and Emplaced Gun are only available in Siege, if the class has the WP_TURRET or WP_EMPLACED_GUN weapon flags in their class file. The Turret Gun is the weapon that portable sentries, ceiling-mounted turrets, multiplayer emplaced guns, and multiplayer E-Web inventory items use, and the Emplaced Gun is what E-Webs and emplaced guns use in single player only.

The E-Web in Siege is not a weapon, but an inventory item. It cannot be disabled.

I didn't see your reply before, but that is very interesting. So if you disable "turret gun" in JA, you turn off the portable sentries, ceiling mounted turrets & etc?

And if you disable "emplaced guns" nothing would happen since it's SP only?

I'm not sure (haven't modded JA since SWBF came out), but I think that's right.
