The code for this plugin is ported from the OnOeS source code written by Hex, jnz and pvtschlag. I started porting this plugin while I was reading the OnOeS source code and had need for GSA support without having to install the RR server or starting BRenBot. I know there are many alternative software that can do this, but it was a relative quick port and I know some people might need this or be interested in it.

This SSGM 4.0 plugin adds GameSpy broadcasting/listing support to the FDS, like WOLSpy, Renegade Resurrection and BRenBot among others (can) do. The configuration file allows you to configure all the non-essential information sent to the GSA master server, such as info about whether friendly fire is enabled or not. You can also send out custom information such as the name of your (community's) site. All the player info is sent, such as kills and game time.

To install:

1. Copy GameSpy_Support.dll to your main FDS folder, where SSGM is located in.
2. Open up ssgm.ini in the folder and add an entry under [Plugins] for "GameSpy_Support"
3. Add the following text to SSGM.ini and edit it to your liking:

I'm releasing a new version, it fixes an issue where the server stopped appearing on GameSpy at high player counts for some people because the Winsock sendto() function fails to fragment UDP packets properly. It also fixes a weird, rare issue where the FDS gets spammed by error messages because the FDS receives weird packets from gamespy.com for no apparent reason.

It's recommended to update, this new version fixes all known issues with the plugin. I'd like to thank st0rm.net for helping me test this version and I'd also like to thank StealthEye for helping me find the issue with Winsock and for suggesting a work around. See the first post of this topic for the updated version.

I released a new version that adds support for passworded games. Download it from the first post in this topic.

Thanks to Caveman for reporting the issue of the missing passworded games support.

I'm releasing a really small fix for a line where I zero out 8192 bytes of a buffer when that buffer only allocates 4096 bytes, for some reason that doesn't appear to cause any unusual problems :/, but it's nice to have fixed.

This plugin has been running on a bunch of servers for a while now and as I haven't had any new bug reports I assume that it's stable.

Thanks to Whitedragon for reporting the issue.

I can't seem to get the NoWOLPlayerApend thing to work. It doesn't appear on XWIS at all.. It's set to true. Am I supposed to do something else?

Thanks!

Hasn't fixed it either m8. I compare my server name to others who have the thing working for them and my server name is shorter so it should fit... Don't know what it could be :/


Edit: Nvm, now it seems to be working. Does it take someone to join to do that or does it have to load up later or something?

For some reason it takes a bit to update the XWIS name in the xwis listings :/

Ya I thought it was broken, that's why I just rely on my bot for a GSA socket.

It seems to update the settings on GSA quickly, rather instantly. It just seems like the only thing delayed a bit is the XWIS Name Append thing that iRAN did which is obviously good, but it's about a minute delayed on average.


iRAN, is it possible to update the playercount on XWIS to include GSA players, somehow?

The reason it's delayed is because XWIS takes ages to update the topic title.

Yeah it's possible but it'll require lots of work and I'm not sure it's allowed by Strike-Team.

It's not hard, that's for sure. We had it in some form of WOL proxy. Yes, WOL proxy, not XWIS proxy. It made our server visible on both the USA and the EU WOL server, and worked to some extend with playercounts. Was quite a dirty hack that we used, but we never ran into problems with it, amazingly.

How? I assumed since WOL/XWIS is essentially an IRC server that it got the playercount from the amount of users in the server's channel... which I assume can only be legitimate registered users on a valid serial?

But of course I could be wrong on all of that. Razz

I believe Ethernal is correct, in that the amount of players displayed as in-game on the WOL listing is based off the amount of clients in the FDS's channel.

However, there are no doubt ways to work-around that.

You described exactly what we did. We made it have registered users in our channel. Not the ones that were ingame, but that wasn't visible from the serverlistings nor when you were ingame nor in the start screen.

Glad to know I started a real discussion Razz

Is there anyway that this feature can be included in SSGM? Having everyone in the server count as a player in XWIS's player count?

If it's acheived by spoofing clients in the FDS channel, then Olaf would quite rightly be annoyed, and potentially ban your FDS.
Bots on WOL/XWIS are not allowed (although it's something that isn't often enforced).

What he said - plus that if everybody was doing it, then they'd be FORCED to block it. It's not such a big deal if one random community is doing it because it's probably not even noticeable.
