Hello. I was wondering if it is possible in any way for programmers who are not even admins to modify the free source code of Hedge wars and such find a way to 'whois' us on the official server and know each person's IP address? like an irc server.

If you're talking about penalties for being rude in the lobby or in the game, then it's already been discussed. Smile I think it was somewhere in "Feedback & Suggestions".

not aware of any such vulnerabilities right now, but are you that shy about your IP address? I don't really worry about it myself...

No it was not rudeness that i was talking about and i did not see the discussion about it anywhere. if some one _uck with me i get out of the room

shy? no. i am asking about ability to get IP addresses only because i was thinking that some might use the game to attack and harass people after getting their IP address with ddos... and a lot more

so is it possible that persons different from the official server admins might get a way to know our IP address?
I hope to get an offical reply

I can't play on official server because I must write password. What is password?

No modifications needed, just right-click on the names in the lobby/rooms and select info -> the IP of the selected player will be displayed.

I do that often to find out from where people are, I would find an automatic display of the IPs country flag or TLD cool though...
