Qwrap is a frontend to dedicated Linux server v1.06 (the output is
different on older quakeversions). It can take input
from both stdin and from a user defined file (fifo). It also
parses the output and appends it to the defined files, supporting
- Resolves ip-address appending the hostnames in the modified
- The names of the players are differentially colored on the
- Writes out the death events of every player and their cause.
- Supports a banlist containing playernames or hostnames.
- Supports registered playernames by qnick, validating
the name with the ip-address/hostname.
- Disallows changing of names, if the new name is registered.
- Autokicks Â´unconnectedÂ´ and players with ascii characters <= 32
- Autokicks mass-suiciders.
How does it work
Qwrap starts xquake with the options defined in the ini-file.
It parses commands given either through the console, or those
written to the fifo-file. Thus the serveradmin does not have to be
at the console to give xquake commands. To start Qwrap we use
doprog (here is a copy of
our binary) in order to start it on a specific tty. The only
argument is the [path]ini-file.
New features added in version 0.42bx
Administrators (and others) can connect to qwrap
via tcp-port 14242 with telnet or with a dedicated
program. All commands to the server has to be given
with a slash (Â´/Â´) first on the line. Qwrap commands
are given with colon (Â´:Â´).
Support for qw status reports
finally added (not very well tested yet).
The output is not as clean as it used to be.
