hey just wondering. but is it just me.... or does the game info have alot of probs.

i understand its hard to get coding going for certain games to get stats.

i can only get the ping to work in unreal tournament.
i can get kills to always work, i can get time to work.

but whats with deaths?? does the deaths info work for any games?? and if so which ones??

thanks

I would consider yourself pretty lucky for being able to get that much Game Info to work. I have had a few problems with the Game Info in every LCD software I have sampled and have kinda given up on it. I do not blame the software vendors because after I thought about it, I imagine maintaining the code for Game Info gets to be difficult when you consider all the different games out there and all the patches for each game. Even though most multi-player FPS games these days are built on the good 'ol Q3 Engine each game adds it own spin on it.

Gaming server information code is really horrible.
To support the games i have, i had to analise network packets and work out the information format. No easy task. Writing the code alos wasnt fun as i hadnt delt with writing networking code before.
Luckily though, a lot of games use the same methods of giving information which made things a little easier.

Just because the ~tags~ are avaliable in CC, doesnt mean they will work. Deaths for example only works with with one of the games supported (i cant recall which). Look at the tag information box for details on which games itll work with.

As i said, Deaths doesnt work.
And if you read the tag information you would see that connect time only works in half life.

Whats the servers port?

The ping to the server must also be less than 1sec.
When i say that, i dont mean in game ping.
I mean that after CC has sent the data request, it needs to have the response back in 1sec otherwise itll [E17]/[E18].

Im looking at 216.185.200.206:12203 now... working perfectly with the info i said above works.

Sorry but i have plaied with those line for the whole weekend one two different pc DURING a LAN party with the SAME results. my friend and i bother have these displays and all we both get is the same results. i put the Lan info in i get MOSt of my server info and NONE of the personal shows. i dont know what version of the software your using and i think maybe it could be something wrong with me. BUT out of two PCs neither one of them works. and even with a PC on a LAN connection i cant pull the info. so i know the speed isnt that slow.

The best way to make aproblem go away is NOT to answer the problem at all. i hate to flame or even talk bad about people BUT. i have a pproblem with the software and other poeple i know do to and i posted a question and other than you wont be able to get this one type of info and mine works answer there is nothing. i was willing to send or help in ANY way I can but there is nothing even dealing with this problem being said ive looked on the boards and other people have the same problem. and not one responce to the problem. i dont want this to turn into a flame of any kind i just want us the user to work with the Programer ti solve the problem.
