Kali Port Change

The Kali Website has word that the Kali tracker has moved to a non-standard port, and users of this old-school server tracker should configure it to look for "tracker.kali.net:2213." You hear so little about Kali these days that one would suspect this is an April Fools' joke, but the post is actually from a few weeks ago. Thanks Ant.

After Gamespy went to shit I started using The All Seeing Eye. I think that might have gone to shit as well so now I use HLSW.

It originally started as a HL engine server op tool but now works for a wide variety of games. I mostly use it when I'm at the yearly 300 attendee LAN to find games being played that I don't even know about.

Ex. "Ahh looks like there's 2 ET games going, a rocket arena 3, a few CS servers, gridiron, oh sweet someone's got a PVK2 up!"

Kali was one of the few apps I paid a registration for back then. Nowadays I pay for more apps if they are priced decent. I still can't stomach $40 for FRAPS though.

Oh and the gamespy 3d server browser? Still 100 times more full featured than valve's crap.

Same for me on all you said. The Steam sever browser is lacking!

How's about GameConn BBS software?

Those were good days. Just enough people so that there was always a game of Doom or Descent to be had, but also few enough so that we all knew each other from the BBS or in person. Worked reasonably well too, though every player got the frame rate of whoever had the slowest computer.

Much better than DWANGO.

edit: Oh, and in the off chance, anyone from DoomHQ, The Netherworld or AlterEgo in the DC area? Meet me in (t)elechat channel #1911.
Wasn't GameConn related to SirDOOM? I was on a local MajorBBS that had both Kali and SirDOOM. Fun days. I met local people in person during my college days. Then came LAN parties and Internet.

I remember when Gamespy was just "Gamespy 3D" and was primarily used by me and my friends to play Quake 2. You know, before it became bloated and was ruined by greed.

Never messed much with Kali. Or Ten or WON for that matter.

QSpy, man.

Wow, I remember when Kali was one of the best ways to get connected to games. I bought my license after Heat.net went tits up.

Descent through Kali was radical/rad. I played it through a local BBS that used Kali server and it actually worked. C&C:TD didn't play well through Kali for me back then.

I hopped onto Kali to see what's up. Wow, that place is dead. SO sad. At least my account still works!

I still have my old GameSpy Arcade v2.0.5 and it still works. Dang all these old stuff I have.

Back then you needed Kali to play a lot of games online, it was more then just a server browser. It was a software bridge really, and matchmaker.

Most games only supported the Novell Netware IPX/SPX protocol for LAN play, as that's what most LANs used at the time. There was no 'Internet' or TCP/IP options. Kali would route the IPX/SPX protocol over TCP/IP so you could play across the Internet.

Kali was quite a gem until games started directly supporting TCP/IP.
You are 100% correct.

Kali was great for those games that only supported IPX networks, like Descent, NetMech and Duke Nukem 3D. I never did like the server tracking functionality very much, though.
