deusex:// and domain names

Postby Shinobi » Sun Jul 24, 11 3:15 pm

I want to make a way for someone to join a server not in list, I don't have static ip, but have no-ip darkglobe87.servebeer.com

want a way to make shortcut or something so other person can connect to server using this name, but dx ip box only allows... well, ip's.

Possible? If so, how?

You can use the "open" command which should work with domains.

I don't remember whether you should specify the port though, either or both of those
Code: Select all
open darkglobe87.servebeer.com


Code: Select all
open darkglobe87.servebeer.com:7790


should work if everything is configured correctly (e.g. port forwarding).

The link such as this
deusex://darkglobe87.servebeer.com

should also work straight from the browser... if it doesn't you need to install a special patch for that which I believe was posted somewhere on this forum ages ago :P

You could make an URL file or a .BAT with something like this:

Code: Select all
DeusEx.exe darkglobe87.servebeer.com


I don't know if it works though.

URL file? Just read link. New to me, that is.

I can't be bothered with batch file. Nevermind.

Btw totally random... from dx.log:

Init: Memory total: Phys=4194303K Pagef=4194303K Virt=2097024K
Init: Working set: 32000 / 159000
Init: CPU Speed=3073.632549 MHz
Init: CPU Page size=4096, Processors=8
Init: CPU Detected: PentiumPro-class processor (GenuineIntel)
Init: CPU Features: CMov FPU RDTSC PAE MMX KNI


WUT NO SSE2 lol

Using the open command with domain:port works.


@SSE2
Obviously that's soo common that they accidentally forgot to put it in your CPU. :P

deusex://darkglobe87.servebeer.com open DeusEx... that's about it. No server connection?

Does it work in-game with open deusex://darkglobe87.servebeer.com?

Try the protocol fix attached below, again. Set the correct path to your Deus Ex installation in xp.reg.

Cheers, Dae, solved the problem, I tried a different file supposed to do the same but this one works.
