Sorry for the lack of updates lately and the sorry state the website is in, I have been diverting my time to something much more interesting.
After trying to make something of the very unsupported API that the Dark Reign server runs with, I have managed to finally(!) complete a direct link from a standalone app.
What this means in plain english is that it is possible to talk in the Dark Reign lobby without actually running the game.
This is an achievement in itself, but it’s only half the deal. The next step is to create a windows program that you can keep running in the system tray that will alert you in realtime of new gamers on the server and allow you to talk with them.
But its 4am and it’s late. I’m off to bed.
