######## private WON-servers ########

Without the WON-servers from Valve, noone could play CS1.5 with the older engine anymor ...
But there are solutions to that problem:

Based on this patch: http://www.zvdk.nl/1.5/english.php, people can now run Internet-servers
in LAN mode, allowing people to connect over the Internet!

Currently, we run a noWON CS1.5 server: 217.172.182.214:27015, aka murka-terroristka.de:27015

As there are no Master server from Valve anymore, people trying to play just cannot find
servers when they do not know the Host/Domainname or IP-Adress ...

But there are solutions to that problem as well:


You can always find noWON server from the server list at http://www.gsearch.net/
Just search for Half-Life (WON) and Counter-Strike ...

Also, there are PRIVATE WON Master servers now!

CS server can register there and be listed for player like via WON from Valve   ;-)

If you plan to LIST your own server there - like our server - then add the following Master entry
to the file "../hlds_l/valve/valvecomm.lst" and it will register at this private master!
This method does not provide any WON-Id, and so no way to ban people or have other than name-based
statistics!

Change 

Master
{
      half-life.east.won.net:27010
      half-life.west.won.net:27010
      half-life.central.won.net:27010
}

to

Master
{

        zvdk.nl:27010
//      half-life.east.won.net:27010
//      half-life.west.won.net:27010
//      half-life.central.won.net:27010
}

This way, your HL server will be registered at the private WON Master-server at zvdk.nl

For players to FIND this server, they need a "patch" that adds "zvdk.nl:27010" the their Master
entry in the file "..\Half-Live\valve\woncomm.lst" ...
This way, your HL client can find servers via the private WON Master-server at zvdk.nl

######## WHAT NOW ########

What we need is a way to centraly register noWON servers - at best at zvdk.nl:27010
And then find a way to mirror this information for redundance and performance ...

And then, we need to spread the word to the gamers, so they add this private Master server
and be able to find game servers and actually play!

HLSW and www.gsearch.net will be helpfull as well, but a new private
Master network of servers and clients would be the best ...


Have fun!
