    Lightbulb LOTRO Server Status v2.1

    Windows 7 / Vista Gadget now available: http://forums.lotro.com/showpost.php...6&postcount=27

    Hey all!
    As some of you may know, I wrote a server status 'checker' (for lack of a better word) that I have had running on my kinship's website for the last year and a bit. It has functioned satisfactorily over this time but with the announcement of the Forum pruning, it brought me to the attention that there was a little more I could do.
    Visually it looks the same as the previous version (may work on a new design sometime SOON™- yes you know what that means ), but the upgrades are all behind the scenes.
    I've seen the gadget on quite a number of kinship websites, showing the status of all of the North American servers. Most of the kinships were only based on one server but had to show the status of all the servers just to see the one they wanted. I know that it is useful to see the status of all of the servers and I most certainly have not removed that feature, so don't worry.
    So, with this release I've added the ability to show the status of only the servers you want to see. This not only saves space on your website but also reduces the load on the LOTRO logon servers (which is minimal).

    Features

    • Shows the current status of the North American and 'old' European Lord of the Rings Online servers.
      • Open ~ servers are currently running and available for playing.
      • Down ~ servers are currently not running.
      • Closed ~ servers are running but not open for players.

    • Shows only the servers you require (if you do not want them all).
    • Shows the last assigned queue number.
      • Note: This number is not the number of players logged on.
      • When you logon, the server assigns you a queue number which indicates your position in the login queue. This queue plays a part when the server is full and you have to wait for some players to logout. So basically all this number shows is the last position in the queue that the server has assigned.
      • I'm not too sure how often the server clears the login queue number so it is kind of a pointless number for us to look at.
      • The one interesting thing about the queue number is that we can also get the last served queue number - i.e. the last player that was logged in. With this I can check whether the server is full or not and add another status for the server.







    How to use



    • To embed the checker into your website, use the following code:
      • <iframe src="http://status.warriorsofnargathrond.c om" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" width="205" height="345"></iframe>
        • Change the src attribute to the website that you want it to show (i.e. for the different servers).
        • The height of 345 is the correct height for all of the servers. You can reduce the size if you are not showing all of the them.





    Ok, I think that about wraps it all up, please post any feedback or ideas in this thread and I'll do my best to keep it updated.

    Thanks for your time - I hope you find this thing useful...

    External Access

    I've added a new option for all of those who may be interested in using the server status in their own gadget, application or website.

    The website for external access is:
    http://status.warriorsofnargathrond.c om/activity/external.php?status={server names}
    {server names} needs to be a comma separated list of uniquely identifiable names for the servers. For example br is good enough for Brandywine or lan for Landroval.
    http://status.warriorsofnargathrond.c om/activity/external.php?status=lan,bran,g il

    The page will return an XML file that looks like this:
    Code:
    <servers>
         <server>
              <name>Brandywine</name> 
              <status>2</status> 
         </server>
         <server>
              <name>Bullroarer</name> 
              <status>1</status> 
         </server>
    </servers>
    Name will contain the Server Name.
    Status will contain one of the following:

    • 0: Server is Offline (not running at all).
    • 1: Server is Closed (closed to the majority of the population - will possibly allow Turbine staff or beta testers)
    • 2: Server is Online (running and available to all players)
    • 3: Server is Full (server is running but cannot accept any new players)

    Please let me know if you need any help with any of this.

    I'm sure it's a very nice app. However, the lotro servers unscheduled downtime is nearly nonexistent. Props to Turbine.

    Yeah, I first made this app during the scheduled restarts after one of the updates (Was it book 7? I don't know) and people wanted to know when they were on, but with the improvements that they've made, there is very little downtime at all .

    However, it is helpful for patch days so you know when to ask to leave work early.

    Just a little update here, have posted it at the top of this post.
    Am now offering external status checking from my site which you can use in your own gadgets or applications.

    Re: LOTRO Server Status v2.0

    I did something like this over in DDO.

    Although I made it a script include, so you could just drop the script tag anywhere in your website and have it show up.

    http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=233994


    Made a Windows Vista/7 sidebar gadget with it as well.



    Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about it Galdorad.

    Hey Cedwin,
    I still have a gadget although that is posted in another thread but I haven't updated it recently (although it does still have down, closed and up).
    I'll have to look at the script include as that would make it a little easier for users

    Just view the source of this page, you'll see how I set it up.

    Then view the source of this page to see how it's implemented.

    BTW, those server queue numbers can be used to track number of logins, if you save them somewhere. Current Hourly Queue - Previous Hourly Queue = Total Logged In

    I've noticed over the past few days the server status isn't working. Did Turbine change something that broke it?

    Hmm.. thanks for the heads up!
    I'll have a look into it and see what's wrong.
    At the moment the Turbine server status url that I'm using is showing a 'In maintenance' mode.

    Yeah, I've been logging the servers since June and am in the process of writing an app to show it in a user-friendly format .

    Re: LOTRO Server Status v2.0

    Ok, all is working again - thanks once again for letting me know.
    Turbine changed the location of the server status.

    I have made a Vista / Windows 7 gadget but it is very crude at the moment. It is my plan to create a new gadget as soon as I am able to.

    Sure, it's now http://gls.lotro.com/GLS.DataCenterServer/StatusServer.aspx?s={IP address}
    Please feel free to use my external site access as that will be updated with the correct addresses and it does all the work for you. Will show 0 for offline, 1 for closed, 2 for online and 3 for full.
    Look on page 1 for more info .

    Re: LOTRO Server Status v2.0

    Essentially a .gadget is a .zip file, so if I rename it to a zip, then unzip it, change the settings with the correct address, rezip, then rename it back to a gadget it should work?

    Yes, that could work although the way it checks the status is not accurate anymore (open and offline will work but not closed).
