Nifty server alive script

    Hey all, I was looking for the last piece of the puzzle. A php script to query the BF2 server and get a response if the server was actually running or not. Not just if the udp port was open. Anyone else looking for this will understand what I mean by that. Well, I'm glad to report I found it! It also goes a step further and will pull and return server info but all I wanted was a quick "is the server up or down". I found an app called GameQ on sourceforge. What I did was trim it down to just BF2 and Ventrilo by removing data for all the other games it supports. I also tweaked the scripts to my preference and desire. You also could add a mailer if the server is detected offline (thought just came to me now). Anyway wanted to share if anyone else is interested.

    Later,
    MjP
