To be able to join servers directly by clicking the links in the Address column on https://doomlist.net, you need to configure your OS to associate the
zan:// URL scheme with a launcher.
This guide will be using Doomseeker as the launcher and assumes you already have it installed.
Use your favorite text editor to create a file on the following path:
The contents of the file should be as follows (replace
PATH_TO_DOOMSEEKER with the correct path to the doomseeker executable on your system):
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=Doomseeker link handler Exec=/PATH_TO_DOOMSEEKER/doomseeker --connect %u StartupNotify=false MimeType=x-scheme-handler/zan;
Finally run the following command:
xdg-mime default doomseeker-link-handler.desktop x-scheme-handler/zan
It is neccessary to edit the Windows registry to make a new URL scheme association.
The following subtree has to be created in the registry:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT zan (Default) = "URL:zandronum" URL Protocol = "" shell open command (Default) = "PATH_TO_DOOMSEEKER\doomseeker.exe --connect %1"
To create this subtree automatically you can use this .reg file
Then start the Windows registry editor (
regedit.exe) as administrator and navigate to the following path in the registry:
Double click the
(Default) entry to edit the value. Replace
PATH_TO_DOOMSEEKER with the path to the doomseeker executable on your system.
The result should look like this (except the path will be different):
Once the path to doomseeker.exe in the registry is correctly set the
zan:// links should start working immediately.
