Hello Urban Terror Community,

this post is about a new out of game server browser for Urban Terror I am currently developing:

Posted ImageUrTSB - a Urban Terror Server Browser

Introduction

The project is open source (GPL) and hosted at code.google.com : UrTSB Homepage

UrTSB is mainly targeted to run on Linux but is also available for Windows.
(it should also be possible to run on MacOS but I'm not able to test this or to provide a package)

For the curious lets start with some screenshots:
http://code.google.c...iki/Screenshots

Features
  • query Master Server and display the list of results
  • filter serverlist with support for UrT gametypes
  • Display details of servers including players and server settings
  • manage favorites
  • buddylist - manage a buddylist and search servers your buddies are playing on (note: the search is case sensitiv!). Supports substrings. For example if you add only the string [clantag] a buddysearch will return all servers where players with [clantag] in their name are playing. Good to see where your clanm8s are playing :)
  • list of servers recently played on (if UrTSB was used to connect) inclusive date of last connection and number of connections
  • RCON feature for remote server administration


Download

Releases can be downloaded here: Download

Current release is v.0.4

Linux user should download UrTSB-0.4.tar.gz
Windows users please download urtsb-0.4_win32.zip

How to run

Common

On first launch please go to the settings tab and
check the name of the Urban Terror executable and
optional the path to it (if the executable is not in your path)

Linux

Unpack the tar.gz archive and launch the python runner script 'urtsb'.
Make sure you have the dependencies Python 2.6 and PyGTK installed.
(developed and tested on Archlinux with Python 2.6.5 and PyGTK 2.17)

You can install UrTSB using python distutils. UrTSB will be installed in
your Python site-packages directory.
run as root:
python setup.py install
or when using sudo:
sudo python setup.py install

Windows

Unzip the archive and double click the executable 'urtsb.exe'


If something went wrong

If you experienced unexpected behaviour, got an error or just found a bug give me feedback.
It will be helpfull if you provide the console output of UrTSB:
Please start UrTSB from the commandline/terminal with the parameter -d
This will activate more detailed debug output.
On Linux just watch the output in the console. Windows Users can find the output in
the file urtsb.exe.log which is located in the same directory as the urtsb.exe.

Good to see people are actively working on an alternative for XQF. I'm actually quite fond of it, perhaps i don't require more features. But be sure to keep this thread updated with new releases, i might check it out later.

Kind Regards

Tried it and I liked it a lot more then xqf. It is simple and easy to use. It would need few more functions. But I guess those will come with development.

Here are just few suggestions:
  • set default tab in settings (it would be great to be in favorites tab at the start)
  • some kind of simple search maybe
  • maybe some setup.py to be able to simply install it into the system
  • some nice logo for icon (maybe someone on forum can help you with that)

That is more or less all I can think of, but I know you already have a lot of ideas and probably too little time.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you all for your feedback.
I like the idea with the default tab. Haven't thought about that yet :)

This works very nicely for me: ubuntu 10.04 64 bit.

I think i'll use it more than the in-game one now.

Good work and thanks for sharing :)

Address has two D's in though, you could correct that.

Also added a 'Add to Favorites' button to the 'Buddies' tab serverdetails area.

Could it be made to remember the choices you make in the "game types to show" area? It's well enough designed that it is very quick to reset them each time but just a thought.

Are you willing to share how you went about making it? like what tools and stuff, (QT creator?) etc.

I'd really like to know how to get a handle on this kind of thing but find it difficult to know where to begin.
