Game server query problems


#1

Hello,
I’m relatively new to Ruby, so some of this is foreign, but despite
trying
for several hours I can’t seem to get this query to work.

My goal is to create a query that’s consistent with this (
http://www.int64.org/docs/gamestat-protocols/gamespy2.html)

Here’s the code I have so far:

require ‘socket’

message = [0xFE,0xFD,0x00,0x43,0x4F,0x52,0x59,0xFF,0xFF,0x00].pack(“c*”)
socket = UDPsocket.new
socket.connect(‘64.34.186.176’, 29900)
socket.send(message, 0)
receive = socket.recvfrom(1400)
puts receive

In return I should receive some data, but no matter how long I leave it
running I never get a response from the server. Apparently I’m doing
something wrong, but I can’t seem to figure out what I’m messing up.

Any assistance is appreciated!

Try TCPSocket instead of using UDP.
