Summary000443: Servers not listed due to recent Half-Life 1 protocol update
DescriptionAfter the most recent update of Half-Life 1 the plugin no longer works. I believe this is due to the fact that Valve has switched to another query protocol, and I quote Alfred Reynolds of Valve:

"They have flipped to using the Source engine format (documented on the Source developer wiki if you need details)."

When playing in a server the plugin only displays the server on which you are playing if you type "/server". The same goes for the automated messages.
Steps To ReproduceThis happened after the latest Half-Life 1 update.
Additional InformationI have double checked that all my serverlist.ini files are identical. I have used the following settings for quite some time now. They are listed in my "amxx.cfg".

redirect_active 1
redirect_auto 2
redirect_manual 1
redirect_follow 1
redirect_check_method 2
redirect_announce 60
redirect_announce_mode 2
redirect_announce_deadpos_x -1.0
redirect_announce_deadpos_y 0.25
redirect_show 0
redirect_adminslots 1
redirect_maxadmins 0
redirect_retry 1
redirect_hidedown 3

And this is the serverlist.ini file that I use:

[Gamelux by Clanhost.nl - DUST2 ONLY]

[Gamelux by Clanhost.nl - DUST2|DUST ONLY]

[Gamelux by Clanhost.nl - NUKE|INFERNO ONLY]

[Gamelux by Clanhost.nl - DEATHMATCH]

[Gamelux by Clanhost.nl - AIM MAPS ONLY]

I have also checked that the plugin is in fact running.

If only the query format changed it's a task of a minute to solve the issue - if the answer packet changes I will need to recode the parsing, which will take longer.
Anyway, expect me to fix this somewhere around late evening on sunday 10/26 (I'm on UTC+1).

Workaround: set redirect_check_method to 1 - this will at least enable manual and automatic redirections again.

The code has been completely rewritten and now supports both the old and the new protocol, which fixes the server querying.
