is a simple program that queries Unreal Tournament 2004 (TM) game
servers and retrieves information like those available while browsing servers
in the game. That means information like server name, game type and current
map, names and scores of players, and much more.
- (DEFAULT) Request complete information, server/game/players.
- Request only information about server.
- Request only information about game.
- Request only information about players.
- -p port
- Specify the game port of the server, useful for servers which listen on
custom ports. If -p is not specified, the default port 7777 is used.
- -q port
- Specify the query port of the server. Normally this option is not needed,
since the query port is the one right after the game port (so by default
it is 7778). Specifying a correct game port will suffice in most
- -t value
- By default, quaqut will wait 10 tenths of second (one second) for server
replies (their number is not always predictable). This value is normally a
good choice. People with very slow or very fast connections (like those in
LAN games) may like to fine-tune this value. value is in tenths of
second and must be a number between 1 and 999.
- -d value
- Activates daemon mode. Normally quaqut gets information, displays them and
exits. In daemon mode, quaqut will keep running and will collect and
display info at regular intervals. Interval duration is specified in
seconds by value , it must be a number between 10 and 9999.
- -f filename
- Instead of printing information to stdout, quaqut writes them in the
specified filename ; remember that new information are not appended
to the file, it gets rewritten instead (this behaviour has been thought
for daemon mode). In order to append new information to an existing file,
simply use output redirection instead of this option.
- Displays output in raw form. This means unformatted output, with each
value on a single line. This comes handy for everyone wanting to parse the
output within a frontend or web page.
- Displays quaqut version and exits.
