Query uses game name instead of server name for 7 Days to Die

Hello everyone,

I have noticed that the query for 7 Days to Die uses instead of the server name the game name.
The game name allows to have different "worlds" in the data folder, so it is an internal value.

Is your server different than all of the other 7DaysToDie servers?

They all seem to have appropriate names.
I am retired from GameTracker after 11 years and will not be responsive for support requests.

They have the appropriate names, because they changing the "wrong" value.
My Game is the default value, you will find some servers named like that:[url=https://www.gametracker.com/search/7daystodie/?query=My+Game]


Here is an extract of the serverconfig.xml:
<property name="ServerName" value="My Game Host"/> <!-- Whatever you want the name to be. -->
<property name="GameName" value="My Game"/> <!-- Whatever you want the game name to be -->

The GameName is used to create a folder in the saves directory to store the server data.
Using this value for GT results into the problem that some folder names will contain signs which makes problems with the OS.
Furthermore each name change would result into a new folder created for the saves. Server administrator needs to move the data from one folder to the newly created one.

Regarding the server variables here, the server name is stored as GameHost.

Finally it is an issue with the implementation of the Source Query Engine .
