The XMLLive Service is a web service that allows real time (live) game server access via standard web service interfaces over internet. It is accessible via http://xmllive.hlsw.org:25000/ . XMLLive supports all games that are supported by HLSW (see http://www.hlsw.org/hlsw/supported_games/ for a list of supported games). It can be used e.g. to display the status like hostname, playing users etc. of one game server on an web page or use it to develop handy apps.

%20. Since the parameters are seperated by
/ this character must be replaced by
%2f. In general function parameters are UTF-8 encoded and afterwards urlencoded (replace special chars with
