Server Query Tool

Here is a little tool I created to send custom queries to other servers from inside Rune. You can access Server Query Tool from the Mods menu in the game. Only works with versions 1.07 and above.


With this tool you can get all kind of information from a server:

– which players are on the server
– which mutators the server is using
– what is name of the current map
– information about players on the server
– much, much more…

Read more about which queries you can use here:

Some interesting ones are:


As an example, sending \level_property\computername would return the computer name of the server.

\level_property\hour would return the current hour of the server, this way you could get an idea of where the server is located, in which time zone.

\player_property\location would get the location of every player on the server.

As you can see, you can have a lot of fun with this. Just look through the right classes to see which variables you can get. And if you find some interesting queries please leave a comment.


Classic Server Query (1.0X Server Fix)

For some reason you can’t join Rune 1.00, 1.02 or 1.04 servers with Rune Classic even if you can join 1.01. That is a little weird because all those versions are network compatible.

Anyway, if you want Rune Classic players to be able to join your 1.00, 1.02 or 1.04 server you can install this fix.


Put the file “ClassicServerQuery.u” in your Rune system folder.
Open Rune.ini and change:
