foConnect

What is this? foConnect is a simple utility which allows you to host and join games from the front page of fo-online.net. It also supports Steam version of FlatOut, if you care about statistics and overlay.

How to use: double-click on program executable, navigate to flatout.exe and you're done.

Enter these commands in browser or command prompt, or you can create a shortcut:

foconnect://join/ or foconnect://host/ - show serverlist in browser
foconnect://join/<ip>/<password> - join game
foconnect://host/<interface>/<opt:password>/<opt:description>

Values for <interface>:
wan - public ip; lan - private ip; or you can enter ip yourself.
Example: foconnect://host/wan//test%2desc - host a game without password using public ip with "test desc" in description.

I replaced it with visual studio build, you need to have installed VS 2005 redistributable package in order to launch it.

A main goal of reinventing the wheel was to kill some time and test my c++ skills. I also wanted to add some anticheat functionality , but I'm already tired of programming. Maybe later, If community needs it.

Actually we really need it, but I am afraid it will be too big of a task, but never say never.

Also, foconnect can launch steam version of FlatOut natively - can be useful if you want install FOv2Plus on it. (You will be prompted about this during installation; Steam should be running when launching the game or foconnect will lock up).

If there will be any updates, i'll post them here.

I haven't had time to test it yet, but can I use it to connect straight from - http://fo-online.net ?
I dont see why people even would use it to host a LAN game, as LAN is natively supported in game.

I did add opportunity to join every game in front page.
If there is any problems let me know.

And when you use windows7(or vista) make sure you run as administrator if you install foconnect
