xREDIRECT is an AMX Mod X plug-in that can redirect players between game servers based on the Half-Life engine. Redirections can be manually triggered by players or administrators as well as automatically executed. A list of servers running this plug-in can be found here.


Ingame menu for manual redirection

  • Players can choose a server from an ingame menu
  • Players can enqueue themselves for a server if it is currently full, they will be automatically redirected as soon as a slot is free on the target server
  • The menu supports paging and displays 8 servers per page
  • Players can see the status of any server (map and active/max players) directly in the menu
  • The server list can be filtered and grouped by server categories (v2.0 or higher)

Automatic redirection

  • When the server is full it redirects the joining player to another server
  • Players are only redirected to servers that currently have a free slot for them
  • Users on the local network can be prioritized, xREDIRECT will send another player away when a local user demands a slot
  • Admins can be prioritized, xREDIRECT will send another player away when an admin demands a slot

Status announcements

  • The list of servers with their respective status (map, active/max players) can be shown regularly to all players
  • 10 servers are shown at once, xREDIRECT cycles through the pages when more servers are used

Server list

  • The server list is loaded at startup and contains all servers the menu and announcements should show
  • The server list file is a file in an INI like format
  • Alternatively the server list can be read from a MySQL database (v2.0 or higher)
  • The server list (file or SQL) can be dynamically (re)loaded while the game server is running
