  • New Suggestion: Out-of-game Server Monitor

    As someone who works from home, I would appreciate being able to see if any Thievery servers looked populated enough for an interesting game.

    However, UT and Thievery demand so much of a computer's resources that it is impractical to leave them running in the background.

    Can the game's creators make a stand-alone application that simply displays the same window-and-subwindows structure that appears when I select "Multiplayer -> Find Internet Games" from the menus within the game?

    It would need the functionality of "refresh" and "ping" but not the functionality of joining.

          Yes.
          I had to follow the stream, couldn't resist anymore.

          Can you see what it is? The grey lady, a ghost-picture from a castle somewhere in UK.

              I must have seen this pic one hundred times in my whole life...

              Pretty cool, if you ask me.

                What is it? Looks like a ghost or something. In that case, where did you get it from?

                    The picture is taken in the stairway of a famous castle in UK, many many years ago. That's why it's black and white. The servants took pictures of all the stairs in the house (dunno why), and the "grey lady" appeared on one of the pictures. Freaky, eh?

                    The reason I use that picture, is that I'm a ghoster. Only way you can catch me, is on film. :twisted:
                    So be sure to use blitz next time!

                      Good luck. I just couldn't resist anymore.

                      Keep it up!


                      Btw, here's a big picture of the grey lady:

                        Ha. My pictoral avatar is more frightening. (Although the IAO did remove the logo from their site.)

                        Thank you, LaughingRat. Unfortunately the software's web site is not very helpful, and I may need to return here with questions about installation. We'll see. (pun intended)

                          A little tinkering with it and you should have it up in no time. It's really pretty easy to use, and you can keep an eye on servers for any game you have installed.

                            You are right. That was fast.

                            Its installation slipped quietly by my Norton Systemworks monitoring of such things. I would mind, but it's amusing appropriate.

                              Really? It slipped past Norton? That's kinda funny, bacause my free firewall caught it at first.
