I was thinking just now about how it would be mildly useful if Scorched had it’s own custom URI scheme.
This would allow us to click on a server listed here in the forums or in the servers section of the site and instantly boot up Scorched and head to that server when say the server list is down or we happen to visit the forums and want to instantly join (after the link was modified with the URI scheme of course).
I DID say it was just an idea. Not a serious URI string.
i know, sorry if i sounded harsh, was just trying to provide the infos for a more common format.
about user & password: i think that the game should accept them anyway as parameteres; they will not used necessary, but having the possibility to use them won’t hurt, you might never know what they could be useful for.
About security thing i don’t think it will be a big deal, if someone is enought silly to post a password in a public url he’s probably enought silly to post it anyway directly as text without the url format…
