    One is for Unreal Tournament and the other is for UT2004.
    You know like when you're playing a server based multiplayer?
    And you get the list of servers to join.
    Well these will appear on the UT lists.
    I think.

    Kit is correct, it’s basically a list of different game servers that belong to Digiex.

    If you know the IP address of the server it’s a lot easier than finding it in the server list, some pc games has 1000’s of servers going at any one time.

    Plus people who visit Digiex can see we have a server too and view who’s playing in the server without needing to join.

    Ohhh, and only works with unreal tournament? We could expand this later on with new games.

    The script we have will get information from many different game server, however we only have a UT and a UT 2004 server at the moment.

    Game servers take up a lot of system resources, if we were to host anything else we would need another server witch would cost money we dont have! at the moment Myself, Nimrod, Trebor and CurlySteve pay for the UT server (if anyone else wants to contribute anything towards it we won’t refuse the offer ;))

    If a few members ever wanted to get together and host a server for a different game we would be able to help you set it up and add it to our server script.
