NAME

hlmaster.list - How to load your own list of gameservers.

DESCRIPTION

This document describes, how the config-file has to look like, for loading into hlmaster with the --server-list argument.
You might also want to start hlmaster with the --closed argument. See hlmaster(1) for more information.

Create an empty text-file and insert one gameserver per line with the following syntax:

type ip-address port

Please note that you cannot pass a hostname, you absolutely have to give hlmaster an ip-address.
The port however is not required (27015 is presumed then). The ip-address and the port have to be separated by a ’:’ or by at least one space/tab character. Servers loaded by --server-list are limited to 3000. The overall limit with dynamically added servers is 60000.

The type definition has to be passed in front of the host, but you may optionally ommit it completly (check is taken by default).

Available types:
check The gameservers loaded from your list do not send heartbeats. To prevent your list of containing dead servers, this options turns on pinging the servers every five minutes. This is also the default, if no type was specified.
Note: hlmaster automagically converts servers marked as check to ’dynamic’ upon receipt of a heartbeat/challenge and thereby removes them if they stop sending beats.
nocheck
  Servers marked with nocheck will never time out! They will remain in the list, even if they are dead. This option actually should not be used.
Note: hlmaster does not convert nocheck servers upon receipt of a heartbeat.

Note: Case is not ignored! Enshure you write the type definition in lowercase.

Comments are also allowed and initiated with the familiar ’#’ sign. They may begin everywhere in a line and remain active until the end of line.

Look at the SIGNALS section in the hlmaster(1) manpage for instructions on reloading the filters, while hlmaster is running.

EXAMPLES

An example server.list is provided within the examples directory of the source distribution. However, here’s a short example:

        # example hlmaster gameserver list

        # aaa swiss counterstrike         check   194.209.69.205:27015

        # l33t s3rv3r, n3v3r d0wn         nocheck 194.209.69.205:27020                  # some other servers         123.123.123.123 27015         234.234.234.234 27015
