    Learning Elixir by Querying a Tribes 2 Game Server with UDP Packets

    Anthony Mineo on Elixir

    In my path to learning Elixir, I accepted the challenge and queried a Tribes 2 server. To perform the query fully, it required sending two different packets to the server where the first byte denotes the type of information we're asking in return. The first is called the info packet, which doesn't contain much more than the server name. The second is called the status packet, which contains all the meat and potatoes.
