    DMD NS2 server desktop widgets are here!

    I've created these widgets that will launch NS2 right into the DMD servers from your desktop.

    Dallas2 and Dallas3 examples.

    Windows introduced desktop Gadgets in Vista and then Microsoft later removed the feature through a Windows 7 update because they could be used maliciously, so if you're on Windows 8 or higher Gadgets have already been disabled.

    You can restore the functionality using 8GadgetsPack or Gadgets Revived. You can also install one of these two programs on Windows 7 to re-enable the Gadgets sidebar if it was disabled. When the sidebar is functional you can double-click the two widget files and they'll sit on your desktop. You can right-click on the desktop and select Gadgets to bring up the Gadgets menu on Windows 7 - 8GadgetsPack and Gadgets Revived may be different.

    Subscribe to this thread for updates let me know how they work out for you!

    Download them here -> DMD widgets v1.1.zip

    Note: These refresh every minute to keep up to date (but only download about 10 kb of data when not using a cached file). A little heads up if you're capped at something unfortunate like 2.5 GB of bandwidth a month.

    [Reserved for additional use]

    Here's a concept design for a newer version if these gadgets are useful.

    Widgets updated to reflect server location change from Dallas to West - download link in the original post has been changed to this version 1.1.
    The old widgets will continue work just fine because the server IPs did not change.

    If the widgets stop loading, visit gametracker.com and let it do its browser checking. The widgets should start working again in a minute (literally, a minute). If they don't, try removing them from your desktop and adding them again.
