Over the last few weeks the QWnet service (also knows as serveme) has been extended to enable broadcasting of messages to/from QuakeWorld servers and the www.quakeworld.nu
website. This is made possible by having mihawk's
QWnet bots monitor selected servers and connect on activity, then communicate with quad|Haudrauf's
new QWnet central.
When broadcasting from a QW server, the message source will no longer be displayed as a IRC #channel, but rather as a URL protocol link like qw://ip:port
. Windows/mIRC users may want to install swiNg's QW launcher for mIRC
, a script that launches your QuakeWorld client and connects to the server when such links are clicked within mIRC.
Note that the same usage rules
applies regardless of where you use QWnet. Issues and feedback regarding the new service can be posted in comments or discussed with staff in #qwnet
. If you are a server admin and want QWnet connected to your servers you need to contact staff aswell.
As a side note, ezQuake's IP catcher works nicely along with QWnet broadcasts.
Example of a script to connect to a server announced in a broadcast:bind f9 "join $lastip"bind 10 "observe $lastip"bind 11 "observeqtv $lastip"
