    netKar PRO server list on the web

    Post by Andrea Lojelo on Mon Aug 29, 2011 8:37 pm

    In the last weeks we have been helping Sergey to test and improve his new web application that shows all netKar PRO servers available and gives a lot of nice details about each server.

    netKar PRO online servers
    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

    Sergey Moskovkin wrote:Hi guys.

    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! Very Happy
    ---

    Small preview for those, who wasn't involved into testing:

    1. Overview

    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 Laughing

    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.

    For some reasons the rain/sun icons aren't showed. We will fix it soon (hopefully) Smile


    If you guys own a server and you want to have your league website associated to it, please send me a PM with the server IP and the website link

    Thank you Smile

    nKP Rank gets info about servers and drivers one time in 15 minutes, so it is very outdated data to show up.

    Edit 1: I will try to implement it a bit later Done! (I hope Jaap will not kill me) Smile



    Sorry Firefox and Opera users - you will see damn single line tooltip. I will fix it later.

    Edit 2: also there is an issue with www.xgn.com.au server which doesn't marked as nKP Rank server, but it is. Will see where is the problem.

    Great work, Sergey! The links to league sites, track downloads, track records & setups are just great as well.

    instead of "for last 15 minutes here were:", it should say "drivers in the past 15 minutes:"

    instead of "reset sorting", it should say "refresh sorting".

    also (i know its more work) but the download option on the tracks should take you directly to the download link?

    I agree about "drivers in the past 15 minutes:" - this will be fixed. But why "refresh sorting"? This button revert sorting to default state... Maybe "Default sorting" then?

    I've already added support for individual track download links - now I need send new version to Andrea - he knows where to put it.

    The links will not be direct, they will be like here: http://forum.radiators-champ.com/t537-netkar-pro-addon-tracker

    refresh means update, reset means back to origional. refresh would be a better term used in a server list Wink

    To refresh the table you need to hit F5 or browser refresh button.

    At the moment the table itself doesn't have any other way to refresh data.

    And you are right "reset means back to origional" - that what that button does Smile

    Anyway "Reset sorting" will renamed to "Default sorting".

    i know f5 refreshes the page, but what im saying is there needs to be a button which refreshes the table. you have one in the "reset", but it basically needs to be renamed to refresh, that is all. dont call it default sorting, call it refresh sorting.

    i understand it as it is, it's reset sorting or default sorting, because what it does is to revert the sorting. as when you see if for the first time.

    you can sort by car, by track etc, when you hit reset/default reverts to the first sorting

    it´s very clear i think

    cool.
    what i´ve asked before was if it´s going to be the same website hosted here in RSR or is it going to have it´s own website.
    so far i bookmarked this one, but from what i see still depends on jaap's rank, for the records, setups.
    it´s a great idea though,

    I've already asked Andrea to make this page a stand alone one, because it was designed to be stand alone, but it still will be hosted by RSR.

    nKP Servers uses unused potential of nKP Rank - all I can say about such depends Smile
