This is a great community. Thank you to everyone involved.

I saw a site on the Join UO shard list ( Zulu Hotel ) that always had an "unknown" amount of players on-line. This is very appealing to me as it adds a layer of mystery to the shard. I am interested in figuring out how to achieve an "unknown" amount of players for my shard.

I am not asking for help, but I would appreciate any pointers. I will log all my progress below for future forum users to view.

My first lead is a previous forum post by "Derrick" stating that Join UO uses the remote admin function to determine the amount of players on-line. I will begin there...

I've tried completely removing the "remote admin" folder inside of RunUO.

I realized that this did not work when I saw my shard status as "Off-Line."

We'll try something else....

Unknown usually means that the server is not capable of being queried by us, such as the case of some other shard emulators such.

Because you've been able to be polled in the past, the server assumed that if it can't reach you, you must be down :/
