Server Status etc. on Homepage

I was wondering if anyone else was having problems seeing the number of/names of players and maps on the server list in the homepage. I have been experiencing this for about one week.

In the meantime you can always check the servers via GameTracker,

Yeah gametracker and also xfire work pretty well for swat4. But is there something similar for RvS?

Gametracker link doesn't work anymore; update needed.

Old topic, new approach:

"Our servers" information displayed on starting page (grey cube module?) is no more working; SWAT masterserverlist is gone, new masterserverlist running by MarkMods.

Any chance to update the grey-cube-module to the masterserverlist made by MarkMods?

I think I am not alone when saying it's a very useful feature to see who is online on the servers at the moment I visit this homepage here without the need to press any link (gametracker) or check xfire.

Agree with Duke,

It was more comfortable to see the server status when entering the website.

Personally, I'm tired of pressing Xfire all the time when I want to see who's online.

I can look, but off the top of my head; i doubt it is possible. The server status is actually a feed, live from greycube.com

But i will look

servers

Wiz, can you guys add all active SAS servers to homepage? It doesn't need to display player list or anything, just put an image and IP addresses so we can all know where are SAS servers.

I think Xfire supports 3rd party apps, which means maybe you can code a simple html toolbar as well just like Gametracker has.

The info i have for the SWAT servers is wrong

New idea: If the grey-cube-module doesn't work anymore and won't work in the near future, why not skip it and use gametracker banners instead?

As example:

Doesn't work anymore, as you get an error every time you try to add a SWAT server to GT.

check the homepage and tell me if they are the correct IPs and port numbers. If they are correct, i have the wrong query ports.

The IPs and port numbers for PG4/TG2 are correct, the port for TG4 is 11180.

Aren't the query ports just one number greater than the join port?

I seriously have the wrong numbers DC, please double check with the host, and also check that those numbers are not blocked by their firewall.

Sidenote: with the MarkMod-MasterServer patch the server uses a different protocol for the query port (I think Gamespy v1 instead of v2). That's also the reason why gametracker isn't working for these servers yet.

Would make sense. Thats why i asked about the firewall.

Ports are open. I've made an exception in the firewall as well.

Since the loss of the GameSpy support for the SWAT server list has rendered the LGSL server data on the homepage useless... I recommend placing a banner such as this one on our homepage for our three SWAT servers:

Could you add the 3rd server to the database please

Also, could you add our Arma2 server too, please

For SWAT, so far so good; for ARMA II, is the server currently offline? Else there might be a problem; and for RvS, I can attest that the module is not working for the Proving Ground 1, since I've joined with a few other players and it doesn't list us in it. Also, if you open the module, its status says "NO RESPONSE".

The GameState banners are working fine. I have made a request to GameState to add Raven Shield support, we'll see if they get it done.

I think that the new banners, that West suggested are excellent.

FYI there is a patch for Swat4 to make it work with GameTracker again http://swat4news.blogspot.de/2013/03/gametracker-support-for-swat4-is-back.html
GameTracker also supports Arma2.

Thanks for the info Raptor, maybe it's just me though but I prefer the look of the GameState banner (especially in conjunction with the homepage).
