I've created a tool to join d1x:// and d2x:// URLs

I've created a Windows utility that should register these protocols so you can join games from your browser (or other apps).

Syntax:
d1x://ip:port
d2x://ip:port

Note: it uses Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0.

Clarification: joining games through your browser using this protocol will not get you in the game immediately. You will be at the main screen and still have to select menus. You should, however, be able to join games manually and the IP address and port should be automatically filled out. The Rebirth source code would need to be updated (I think) in order for join-direct games to work, at a later time.

If we could get this patch integrated directly into the source, that would be absolutely great! I'm not sure if it already is or not, but the command line params aren't work for me. Patch info:

Thanks!
