What platform would you run Quetoo on if it was on Steam?:

Copying server adresses.

I think it would be useful to be able to copy server adresses from windows, onto the console.

Thank You,

I didn't find how to paste them, but i have a trick for you.
copy your quake2world.cfg to omnificient.cfg
create a file named autoexec.cfg and write "exec omnificient.cfg" in it.

Ok now edit omnificient.cfg and write at the end of the file:

alias S1 "connect jdolan.dyndns.org"
alias S2 "connect"

Save the file, load quakeworld, call the console and type S1 or S2.

Hope it helps.

There is actually an easier way. It's not documented right now because it's subject to change, but I would recommend trying the following at the Q2W console:

> servers
01. SatGNU Quake2World 1/16 85ms
02. Quake2World Testing Grounds 0/16 120ms

> connect 2
Connecting jdolan.dyndns.org:1998...

Unfortunately, cross-platform clipboard (copy/paste) is not that easy, and so I've held off implementing it until SDL exposes it for us.
