Server Bookmarks

One downside of the favorites server list is that if the host address or port changes, there can be a long delay before Steam internally updates the listing. This update adds a new “BookmarkHost” property to the server’s Config.json file to help work around this issue (among others).

If the server has a GSLT and BookmarkHost is set to a DNS record (e.g., “myunturnedserver.example.com”), a Bookmark button will appear on the server info screen and in-game pause menu. The bookmark saves a few details about the server, such as the name, description, and thumbnail. It can then be quickly rejoined from the Bookmarks menu without refreshing the server list.

For more advanced usage, the BookmarkHost property can be set to a web API URL starting with https://. In this case, the client will initiate a GET request. The response can include an address or DNS name, along with an optional query port override. This allows the address and port to change without affecting bookmarks. Servers using Fake IPs can then keep the randomly assigned address and port in sync with a custom backend. Pandahut has already implemented this on their servers and has graciously offered to share their implementation. We will update this post with a link to it when it’s ready.
