    I suggested to Sergey some small modification to the architecture of the solution and he agreed on that, and modified the code accordingly.
    There are some small modifications to the page too.

    Most importantly the page can be accessed now even on a shorter link http://www.radiators-champ.com/nkpservers/ and will be in this case without RSR menu' on top.

    If you like the RSR menu, you can still go on the usual webpage linked from the nkpro server menu


    I want to thank once more Sergey for the nice work. Well done mate. Looks really cool!

    Anyway there is new version out with slightly changed desing. Now private servers have blue icon with "P" letter. A group of links was removed from bottom of page for better page reading. Added small sorting icons. "Default sorting" and "Help" buttons moved to table footer.

    Still no auto refresh, but I'm working on it.

    I was thinking about replacing car names with icons, but unfortunatly I haven't found good looking ones.

    I've tried to make the page as compact as it may be and looks like I have some success:

    The new version will have active protection against master server fail Very Happy



    The core of new version is almost done.

    There are no new global features from external view, but there are few small ones for better user expirience:
    - notification system (as you see above)
    - page buttons for faster access
    - switching between table pages with mouse wheel (experimental)
    - search will be reset if you click on search field

    Still need to do a help page and fix sorting issues.

    Well guys, here it is - the new version of netKar PRO Online Servers Smile

    Changelog:

    • auto refresh option
    • notification system which will tell if there any problem
    • pages buttons since number of servers is growing up
    • switching between table pages by scrolling mouse wheel while cursor is hover the table or table header for IE users (works if page doesn't have a scrollbar)
    • slightly changed color of weather icons for better reading
    • if you don't use auto refresh line "Last update:..." will change color to yellow after two minutes - that will remind you that you need refresh the page to get the actual information about servers. Also you can click on this line to reload the page.
    • you can reset seach by clicking at the search text field
    • site icon color changed to blue to have contrast with Jump2nkp icon

    Still to do the help page Smile

    But now it went the page on the left.I use chrome and i found this problem in other pages too so maybe its chrome's problem.

    I was thinking about that too, but had to time to implement it.

    Anyway by default the table is sorted in a way when all private servers are placed in the end if they are empty.

    Here is workaround: type ">>>" (without quotes) in search field - in this case private and full servers will not show up Smile

    i love this website! is really great, i can´t imagine any more option (possibles) ping to the server would be a nice feature, but i don´t think it´s an easy one

    If there will be ping - it will show you ping to RSR server, where program is running - not to your location. So it will be just wrong Smile

    i mean like in the online session of the sim, since you have all the IPs of the servers. if i do a ping in a CMD prompt to vrs.ucoz.com I get my ping to their server..
    it should be a local ping to every server.. maybe it makes no sence.. but instead loading the sim and looking to the ping if it´s to high maybe a better choice is to select another one.

    Yes - we are talking about the same thing. Sorry, my English is tricky sometimes Smile

    You see, there are two modules in this project.

    The first one is a program which runs at RSR gaming (where NKP servers) is asking servers for info and generating the table.

    The second - web page which grab the table and you see the final result in browser.

    The program works in similiar way like netKar PRO launcher, except that it is runs not on your computer. So it can't check ping from nKP servers to your computer - only to place where it runs, i.e. RSR gaming server. And that ping value may be completly different from that you actually have.

    That's why this option is a bit useless Smile

    Perhaps, this little addon will make life with unknow ping a bit easier soon, but I need to figure out, where to move nKP Rank and private icons - there are too much shiny colors in one place Smile
