I think an update to various clients that use GameSpy (i.e: RenList) to prevent display of duplicate servers would be beneficial. I can't really see a way to do this from a server side perspective to shove into TT (other than tell server owners who clearly have no idea what they're doing to stop running multiple GameSpy plugins). I don't like the idea of a server being able to get listed several thousand times, or even the current situation where many servers are listed at least twice.

Yeah, but I don't see that happening. Just more wasted effort on a nearly dead game, and for pretty much no reason - it really doesn't matter that zunnie's shit is listed like three times

What? That doesn't solve any problem. It just ignores it.

Same thing with changing how renlist works. Server owners shouldn't act like total retards, that's the only solution.

There's usually 2 of each server. 1 is from the server itself and the other is the brenbot socket.

Both of which can be enabled or disabled. It's definitely his fault that they're both broadcasting.

Ours does the same thing, even without using wolspy.

On another note: Agent, would you and Animo stop flooding our 208. box, thanks. Just because you're planning to run a Ren server again doesn't mean you need to flood ours.

I get along with people fine, so long as they aren't rejects who promised things that they couldn't
deliver on, or forum trolls who contribute nothing except to bloat the fragile egos of the same
rejects I despise.

Shouldn't filtering by IP+port work to prevent duplicates from showing up?
