How do I add a game banner to my web site?

Since OpenArena is basically a free version of Quake III, any banner system for Quake III should also work for OpenArena. Example, to add a game banner from GameTracker.com that updates in real time do the following:

  1. Create a free account at  GameTracker.com
  2. Add your server(s) from this page  http://www.gametracker.com/servers/
  3. If your game server does not have a static address then use the free version of DNS Exit to make your dynamic address behave like a static address.
  4. Next, select the Game (choose Quake III), and enter the IP and Port information.  Note: Your IP can be entered as a URL or the usual IPv4 dotted notation.  Finally, press SCAN (you may have to have to do this more than once) for GameTracker to locate your server.
  5. Any server that you add will show up as a Favorite Server in your GameTracker account.  Simply, click the “banner” option and copy and paste the code of the banner you like best to your web site.

Advanced Topic:  You can also couple the GameTracker banner with a more advanced STATS program (see the Resources Sections in the Right Sidebar and visit the VSP Stats Generator link).
