Looks like DeXus (UAC dev) got something ready, not sure whether its working good or not, or working at all. Just to let you know.

I'm testing this browser dexus5 but has errors, if you filter it by version it is not connecting to server ...


I Markmod wanting to test your browser is to send me

This program is like the server browser from another clan :)
You must register the server self, so it isn't a solution really ;) MarkMods will register all server using MM automatically.

Not really. It's possible to automate the registration of servers with a simple script based on scheduled tasks. I could make it in a very short time with SQL (or even a text file) and one single script. It works same as a payment gateway. Grab data from your control panel (of course i'm talking of Game Service Providers) and every minute, with a cron job, collect all IPs of all your running Swat4 servers. Then send the array via POST or CURL to i_eat_ip.php and populate the server list. That's it.

The only problem is that it seems to me that everyone (not Mark of course) is trying to develop his "server list system" just to show off his skills. Again we don't need 10 different ways to get a list of servers. We need 1 way and we should cooperate.

Something critical is missing in DExUS its ingame serverlist indeed.
I am making quite some progress, with a bit of luck I have a first beta of the client mod ready tonight :)

I think thats a little unfair, my downloader app has been available for 5 years and the browser addition was released prior to anyone else even had anything else to show.  Saying this effort was only to show off "skills" as you put it is pure crap, the desire to keep the swat community going until a more workable solution was available is the only driving force.  Would you prefer it if we didn't spend our time doing this sort of stuff and leave you to sort yourself...MM has stated this could take some time and something is surely better than nothing..

Anyways rant over, I'm all for a single method, in fact if MM gets this working in game properly I'll gladly disable the function in my software and direct users here to get the mod.

Fully agree with you there. Every effort should be rewarded!

As promised, I'll give you guys an update once in a while:

If you ever plan to manipulate the SWAT 4 Menu (in an advanced way) and you'd still like to be able to join a game server, I'd give you this advise: Do not.
 
It took me 10 hours today (AGAIN) to figure out what was bugging the GUI.

Good news though, the GUI is working for the client mod!
Up next (which should be childishly easy compared to the GUI hacking): the client <--> mainserver connection.
A first beta Thursday?! Who knows :)

Status new mainserver:
SWAT 4 server mod Beta v1: test finished - Beta v2: 0%
Mainserver Beta being tested
Web serverlist txt 0%
Web serverlist GUI 30%
ClientMod ingame server browser65%
Installer Client mod0%



Hey Mark beautiful results'm hoping the version I installed a Swat4 work on my machine to test my server, I am following your results daily anything'm on my msn ....

Hi guys,

I am looking forward to the Marks solution, it was also my intent to recreate the main server and since he already begun and I know almost nothing about server side mods I left it in his capable hands.
However my tool is not just for the current community, it's also for ppl from the street who never played SWAT4 and want to join "some" server and have fun.
Now I am certain that there will be like 10+ guys like that :D , but I like having more options and even if the new master server will die or has some issues, my tool can be used even at that time.
If possible I'd like to co-op with you guys and get the swat4 gaming on the feet again.

and please , it's DExUS , or DEx , I hate if someone uses large X in my nickname :D

Have you contacted Gamespy staff about master server files as you previously stated?

Update: did around 350 test runs ranging from monday-yesterday (figured I could see that somewhere in the logs). That's why GUI hacking in SWAT 4 sucks.
Update 2: found a serious bug in the GUI, again. No beta tonight.
Update 3: A first client beta will be available for SWAT 4 v1.1 (and possibly v1.0) only. TSS support needs additional research.
