Re: [Urgent] Maps using Custom Blocks included in TitlePacks fail to load on servers

Ehh... I'm confused. What is the problem here ? If you run a dedicated server you simply need to add the titlepack to the server, then you can load all the maps made with that title pack. TBH: If you want your maps to be playable on vanilla servers you have to embed the blocks in the map file. The b...

Re: Mesh Modeler Items/Blocks Conversion Fix, Missing Features and New Features Suggestions

You can easily create a void block ingame, if you place it on the stadium floor, the grass is gone.
To do that, simple take the default road block and erase it's whole body.
I'm currently searching for a way to convert block clips to items in order to edit them and place them freely. Any ideas ?

Re: Block variations, Remove blockclips & Advanced editing

1) Not sure, what's the MX link / name of the Spheriz Cup track? I'd assume it's an embedded water item. 3) Yes, OpenPlanet . 2) By using OpenPlanet. However you want to do this stuff at the very end of the mapping process because clips will come back everytime you open the map in the editor. To re...

Block variations, Remove blockclips & Advanced editing

1) I wondered if there are comfortable ways to place (or change ?) block variations in Trackmania 2 and place them freely. For instance, place dirthills in the air without the use of an external titlepack or custom blocks ? Here is an example of a water block variation placed in midair: https://i.gy...

Re: XMLRPC Port changes after restart ?!

Anyway, in my eyes the dedicated server should not use a different port as the configured one, just stop if the configured port is not available as other daemons do too. To pick an other port just bring problems, the controller can't connect or the port forwarding doesn't work on that port... (beca...

Re: XMLRPC Port changes after restart ?!

TCP/IP has a session shut down time of up to 2 minutes. If you try to reuse the same port right after closing the server application, it is still blocked, hence a new port is used. This means that you need to add a delay in your restart script. Or you check which port is free and dynamically create...

XMLRPC Port changes after restart ?!

I set up cronjobs to restart the server and Maniacontrol once every day. Most of the time it works fine but on some days something weird happens and the plugin won't load anymore. I set a default XMLRPC port in the config but on some days, after a restart, it happens that this port changes and goes ...
