Im talking about a litle utilitie, that allows you too see the online servers for multiple games.
It shows you the servers, ip, name, players, map, kind of mod, etc...
If you really dont know what it is , visit: www.gamespy.com.
Thanks to all for triyng to help.

XQF is your friend, works just like gamespy.
http://www.linuxgames.com/xqf/

Though I personally think theres a huge demand for an All-Seeing Eye -clone, as it is easily the best game browser on earth. Cant understand why people still use Gamespy.

O.K, i did it....
Man this is really powerfull...
What i did was very simple after all...

Download qstat25c.tar.gz, and xqf-0.9.12.tar.gz.
As root, put the on /root.
Run the following commands:

tar zxvf qstat25c.tar.gz && cd qstat25c && make

and

tar zxvf xqf-0.9.12.tar.gz && cd xqf-0.9.12 && ./configure && make

Copy to bin directory the /root/qstat25c/qstat.bin and /root/xqf-0.9.12/src/xqf.bin.

Created a link to aplication on the desktop to /bin/xqf.bin.

All i have to doo now, it]s to launch the link to aplication, and bingo, a hyper powerfull games browser...
After all it was soooo simple, i really dont know how comes qstat, as sutch a pour documentaction...
Thanks too all for the precious help...
