Netplayseeker - Games Launcher

 
     
 

Netplayseeker is a work in progress games launcher in its Alpha Stage for games such as Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior and Blood etc.

It features a Global Chat Room, with Room Advertising, and helps set up games using the Source Ports available for those games.

 
     
 

List of Features

Global Chat - People will be able to chat to each other and see who's online.

Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) - Instead of you having to manually find which ports to open for each new online game, UPnP does it for you. However, if you decide to go the manual port forwarding route, there are online tutorials on how to open specific ports for certain games and devices.

 
     
 

As Netplayseeker is still in an Early Access Alpha Stage, some features might not work or function, and bugs may exist.

Netplayseeker Alpha now supports EDuke32-OldMP 33 working up to 16 players.

Room chatting is now working inside the rooms.
