How to set up Qtracker for all nolf games

Post by Spawn » Sun Dec 16, 2018 9:19 pm

Qtracker is a gamespy alternative, and since gamespy is history..

Visit www.qtracker.com and go to their downloads
Click Software then Qtracker and download it from one of the listed mirrors

After installing the downloaded package you'll start a first run wizard

Select the games you have
Image

Browse for the execution file for the game you have selected
(yes.. it is not English)
Image

Nolfers can skip this step
Image

Select all regions
Image

Select your internet connection
Image

Finish the wizard
Image

In order for Nolf1, Nolf2 and Contract J.A.C.K to work you'll need to visit view then Settings
Image

Select a nolf game, and paste this string into the Command line:
-GOMULTIJOIN 1 +join [$server_ip_address]:[$server_port_connect]

Image

Now expand a game in the server list, click Internet Games, then you'll be able to view the available servers

Right click the server you want to join and Connect :thumb:

Image

You can also add these lines to your HOSTS file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc)
That will let you join servers from inside Nolf1 and Contract J.A.C.K like you did before gamespy shut down
by redirecting gamespy.com to qtracker.
65.112.87.186 contractjack.available.gamespy.com
65.112.87.186 contractjack.master.gamespy.com
65.112.87.186 contractjack.ms11.gamespy.com
63.239.170.53 motd.gamespy.com
65.112.87.186 master.gamespy.com
65.112.87.186 master0.gamespy.com
Unfortunatly, this does not work for Nolf2 due to the message of the day stuff.
You will have to join from Qtracker or by IP when playing Nolf2
