You can find this page even on clicking on the menu nKPRO Servers our website
I want to thank Sergey for the wonderful work, and for trusting us running his web application.
Let's have him describing what his web application is all about

Here is my little project "netKar PRO online servers" where you can see available nKP servers and connect to them Jump2nkp utility.
So why we may need such thing?
First at all it can a good place for nKP track database - every track name can be a download link or page with information about track and download link. Second - it can be a database of setups. There are many others ideas in my head, but I need to make this thing stable in the first place.
I wanna thanks Andrea and MCarey for their help in testing this thingy at first stage and Juha Pyy for his help with Jump2nkp utility. Thanks, guys!
Small preview for those, who wasn't involved into testing:
Here you can see the table with all nKP servers. You can spot the the server name, the track and its configuration, the rain amount as icon of sun or rain, the car, session type and the number of online drivers.
Orange icon with "R" letter tells you that server is support nKP Rank.
2. Sorting and other features
You can sort the table by any column, choose how much servers you want to see and the page and filter the table by search. All you settings will be saved. If you don't like them - there is a button "Reset sorting".
But the magic starts when you hover your mouse above the server row and different columns...
3. Hover the server row
Just hover you mouse above the server row and you will see a more detailed information: the weather icon will be changed with rain amount, you will see detailed info about current session at server and the "Join" button.
The server name and join button will have the same color for easy reading. Color depends on server state: public servers have green color, private servers - blue, full servers - black and servers which have wrong configuration - red.
4. Hover the server name
Just hower the mouse above the server name and you will be able to visit league home page (if there is such information of cause). I think this will help players find league where they want to race.
5. Hover the track name
Here is something really usefull - in this case you will see the track download link and link to see best times at nKP Rank.
6. Hover the car name
Another good feature - if you hover your mouse above the car name you will see the link to find setups for server's track and car at nKP Rank. Of cause not all combos have uploaded setups.
7. Private server
Just an example of private server.
8. Server with wrong configuration
You will not see the "join" button only in one case - when server has wrong configuration and insted of button to join you will see red button with label "Help". By clicking on it you will see a small help page.
In this particular case server has wrong car name - "KS2", but it must be "FormulaKS2".
9. The end
The best thing about all this stuff - it works
Now I have to figure out how to place all this to regular server. If you know how to do this - please contact with me (the program itself written in C#, it runs constantly, once in two minutes asks all servers about thier state and generates simple html-page).
I hope it will not take a long time.
Thank you for your time.
