    hello... its more "suggestion " than "asking for help " ..
    how about showing the server status here in the forum...like its availability and the current number of the players in the server so the players can always catch the status and check on forum more often


    thnx in advance

    Yea, I don't really see why not :)

    A location like here: https://image.prntscr.com/image/HPoG6sklTEu5SHNOZqscxw.png could be fine, don't see any harm into adding a small box between the current ones.

    Either the app Miltan created could be place there or something similar to GameTracker serverstatus.

    Unfortunately Gametracker won't work, a custom script is needed to run on the server and communicate with the website.

    Idk about GameTracker, I know that it was used a lot back in the days of COD4 etc. I guess GameTracker won't work because Tekno servers aren't official ones.

    I'm sure there are alternatives for GameTracker, where you just need a piece of HTML code that will give you something like this (example):

    Images like this can be placed on the location I suggested in my earlier post ;)

    I actually made a post about this last year. I suggested we should somehow integrate server status and if possible the population into the forums so we could track activity I guess my post must've gotten rekt with the first kSpocolypse

    Anyways, I'm all for this couldnt be anything but benefit for the kS community it will also let us know whether there are players in the servers so we know to check up on it and not have to log in to find all servers barren.

    if server == online then {
    call method showBanner(playerCount, mapName)
    and status == ''green''
    else
    call method showBanner(playerCount==0, mapName==NULL)
    and status == "red" }

    You're welcome :cool:
    The code is written in kS++ by the way, I hope the forum supports it.

    //edit: the server IP's are public at default, how will you expect people to connect to them if they're a secret? ;) having server status on the forum wouldn't change anything in the likelihood of a ddos attack
