Does anyone have any knowledge on how to tap Gamespy to retrieve server information etc.? Can it be easily pulled from the web or do you need some kind of sdk/license from Gamespy? Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Just a thought, but think I could use a socket to connect to like some main server and talk to it?

Each game seems to have its own version of the GameSpy (v1||v2) protocols, but talking to a known server IP seems, depending on the game, to sit somewhere between simple and trivial. Talking to the master browser is a more complex undertaking, though the protocol has been reverse-engineered by others. For more information, check the AABrowse source available at SourceForge, the GameStat browser library at int64.org, and (crucially) the dev forums at kquery.com.
