Quake 3 Server Bot
The purpose of this bot is to make it easier for Quake 3 players to know what's happening on the server.
This bot sends messages to the given group/channel on Telegram when:
- the Quake 3 server becomes available or unavailable
- players join or leave the Quake 3 server
There is a throttling interval of 3 seconds in which the messages are grouped together, so the bot does not spam the chat much.
Here is an example of the messages from the bot:
This bot and its parsers are tested with Challenge ProMode Arena 1.52. There is absolutely no warranty it would work with other mods/versions.
