0003851: Malformed serverinfo data from SRB2 versions > 2.2.6
This problem is similar to the issue seen with SRB2 Kart, except that, since it is now happening to the main version of the game, there are no servers that display correctly.

Most 2.2 servers will not display at all, and the ones that do fail to list any of the files that are loaded, along with the server's name, and... basically any useful information, other than player count and IP. It does not even display the files as corrupted data, like how SRB2 Kart would.
Just open up doomseeker and look for SRB2 Servers.
The cause of this is due to the format for serverinfo changing between versions. The current version of the serverinfo, structure wise, can be found here. [^]

The only way to prevent problems like this in the future would be to filter out all servers that do not have a matching version and or packet version, but that would just mean that all the servers would be invisible until the next update of the plugin.
No tags attached.

I'll take a look tomorrow, thank you for the report, and I'll try to fix this as soon as it is possible. For the meantime, I'm afraid you'll need to disable SRB2 as nothing good can come from malformed data. Have a good summer!

PR Done, I think that this asks for a minor release, I'll let Zalewa decide. On the mean time, you can always build doomseeker yourself and get going with SRB2!

Considering that it is no longer broken, I think this can be closed :)

It's a pretty trivial change after all :)

I deployed the updated SRB2 plugin version 15 to the beta and stable auto update channels and also to the site as the Plugin Update 1.
