Vietcong Auto join Shortcut
techno
Hello

Was wondering if there is away to make a shortcut that will log directly into vc without having
to look at server lists and selecting a server?

something like c:\vc\vietcong.exe -direct 123.123.123.123:5425

And if so is there also a way to embed a link on a forum so other can click on it and also
go directly into the server.

First question - I search web and I didn't find command line parameter which will directly join exact server.

Second question - it depends if there is set some VC folder variable or not. Every player has VC installed in different folder, so you cannot make link like C:\VIETCONG\vietcong.exe... or C:\Program Files\VIETCONG\vietcong.exe ... It should be something like %vietcongfolder%\vietcong.exe...

the first Q?
I don't know how to use C++ or what program is needed that might allow a direct connection.

2ND Q?
Maybe an option after clicking on a link that will then ask you to point the the vc.exe file as a select program option
and an option to save or remember the selection would work as well

I only know of 2 paramters:

vietcong.exe -dedicated definitionfile.ded
vietcong.exe -addon fistalpha

Maybe the definitionfile can be changed to use it for autojoin.....

BTW: x-fire and qtracker offer the "autojoin" function so it is possible

when i see a mate online in vc i can click on the join button, vc launches and i join on the server where my mate plays....

great thought but vietcong.exe -dedicated definitionfile.ded would start the server side I think... such as looking for maps and settings Sad

But you all understand what I am looking for... I don't know if anymore out there would like to make something like this but it would be nice to just go directly into my server but would also be great for when server lists are down.

There are parameters for direct connection:

vietcong.exe -ip 192.168.0.2 -port 5678

I believe there was one for password too, but I cant get it working (pw, pass, password, hostpass).

Brchi, does exists some variable in system where is stored vietcong path? I think no Smile If yes, it would be great to make on web shortcut like "%vcpath%\vietcong.exe -ip 217.195.168.2 -port 5425" Smile

Yep, in registry. But only if there has been an installation, not if files were copied only. So its not reliable.
