File Description

Pathfinder is a little utility that queries all internet servers for game status such as connected players, current map and so on. You can simply search for friends, which are currently connected to any server. My intention was to write a very simple and intuitive tool without the extreme overhead of gamespy or similar progs. Compared with Gamespy there are some other advantages:

- uses much less memory, if you join a game, it will close itself and therefore use no memory at all while gaming the server ping is the time from your computer to the selected game server, not the time from the gamespy master to the game server - colored names are displayed correctly (control keys will be stripped)

Download 'pathfinderrtwc.exe' (252KB)

Readme
Extract pathfinder.exe from pathfinder.zip to wherever you want and place a link on your desktop (right drag&drop). Pathfinder needs the MFC runtime  which must be installed on your system. Most probably some other application has already installed these dlls (mfc42.dll, msvcrt.dll, msvcp60.dll). If not, you will get some error messages complaining that some functions or dlls are missing. You can get the newest MFC dlls from [url]windowsupdate.microsoft.com.[/url] (vcredist.exe) or many other places on the web.

Using Pathfinder:

Connect to the internet and start Pathfinder. Using Pathfinder is simple: Click the 'Query Servers' button to query all running holomatch servers. The tables are now filled with the gathered information. The tabs 'Player list' and 'Server list' are switching between two different views. The first shows a flat list of all players currently logged in. The second shows a list of all running servers. If you select one of the server entries, the dependent table to the right shows all players logged on to the selected server.  In the 'Speed' box you can select your internet connection speed. It determines the maximum number of parallel queries. The 'Include empty servers' checkbox does exactly what it says: it queries every server even if the master server says that there are no connected players. Check 'Exclude bots' to filter all players with zero ping (most probably bots).
