"Only Mortal" OS X Server Browser Released
9:51 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
Mike Davis has released a Cocoa-based Mac OS X server browser for Quake III: Arena and Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Entitled Only Mortal, the browser allows you to search for Quake III and RtCW servers that are currently available on the Internet.
Only Mortal shows you the names of the servers, what maps they are playing, the number of players on a server, and your ping to the server. The browser also allows you to filter servers based on game type (for example, only Capture the Flag servers).
According to the FAQ on the Only Mortal web site, the browser requires Quake III: Arena 1.30 OS X b1. The browser also works with Return to Castle Wolfenstein MP Test 2, but you'll have to open the preferences, change the protocol to 56, and get a new list from the Wolfenstein master server (wolfmaster.idsoftware.com). The protocol for the commercial Wolfenstein game is 57.
Only Mortal requires Mac OS X 10.1.1 or later and is available for download through our sister site, MacGameFiles.
