Holdfast: Nations At War Server Banner Generator
Show off your server's live stats in your signature, website, forum topics, or anywhere!
Hey all! I've created a simple web service that generates server banners using live server stats. Inspiration was driven from a previous small project of mine with generating M&B Warband server banners
. The approach was slightly different here since Holdfast servers use the Steam Query API instead of a public webpage as with Warband. The code is based in Python programming language and simply queries a supplied IP and port for the server information then draws the image. This is free to use and will be up and supported for the foreseeable future.
Currently the stats that are shown on the banner are:
- Name of the server
- Current map
- Number of active players
- Max number of players
- Password protected or open
Here's a link the webpage to generate a banner: https://holdfastbanner.masonrowe.com/
All currently available banner background: https://holdfastbanner.masonrowe.com/images.html
Source code can be found here: https://github.com/masonr/Holdfast-Banner-Generator
Examples using servers that I host:
The above webpage will help you create a banner to your liking. There are currently 15 different background images you can choose from. All you need to know is your server's IP address (ex. 126.96.36.199) and Steam Query port (ex. 27001). I am open to any feature requests, so please ask away. Also, let me know if there's any specific banner background you'd like to use and I can add them.
If you need help getting set up, let me know and I'll assist.
