Hello everyone,
for those who've seen me in the MXB or the GPB Discord, these won't be big news for you.

But anyways: I made something :)

Tought about giving PHP and JS a try and learn on how to parse XML values into something useful. First it was meant to be a workaround for a Discord function I wanted to realize: Join a server by clicking on a hyperlink in an embed.
Sadly Discord doesn't like links that don't start with "http(s)://", so that was the moment I realized I should start on a workaround and it was pretty much quite quickly done.

 

But somehow I hadn't had enough and thought about expanding it ... 3 weeks later I can proudly present to you:



iNsane's PiBoSo Server Browser
or "PiBoSo Connect" I'm not sure how I should call it. Maybe it'll be different again in some weeks.





basically nothing else than Pibs' stats and server pages merged together and differently organized, modern and easier to use interface.

Features:
  • including all available PiBoSo games
  • a landing page which I really like, took me a day to figure out how to make proper transitions between images
  • list of all servers sorted by player count (default for now)
  • direct join servers, disabled on locked servers but might update that soon with a little prompt or something
  • see player count and players
  • see GUIDs of players and copy on click (asked feature, for easier moderating of bad boys)
  • looks nice
  • not responsive
  • will update it regularly, I think, I still have some ideas

I hope anyone has some use for it. I'm always open for feedback as long as it's constructive and helpful.

If there's interest to parse server data to use it in an RSS reader or anything, these are the links which are being refreshed every 60s to prevent a rebuild each time someone connects to the website:
