9: change the following lines to use the server account you just made on the MP4 website:
-your validation_key should be in your email, or you can get a new one https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/account/validation-code
-you can get your steam key by right clicking on canyon in your steam game list

Code: Select all

	<masterserver_account>
		<login>changeme</login>
		<password>changeme</password>
		<validation_key>changeme</validation_key>
	</masterserver_account>
10: also change these password lines to something new and unique

Code: Select all

	<authorization_levels>
		<level>
			<name>SuperAdmin</name>
			<password>changeme12345</password>
		</level>
		<level>
			<name>Admin</name>
			<password>changeme1234</password>
		</level>
		<level>
			<name>User</name>
			<password>changeme123</password>
		</level>
	</authorization_levels>
11: create a batch file "C:\ManiaplanetServer\MP4\start canyon server.bat" with the following inside (create a text file and rename .txt to .bat, then edit it with notepad)

Code: Select all

ManiaPlanetServer.exe /title=TMCanyon@nadeo /game_settings=MatchSettings/maplist_canyon.txt /dedicated_cfg=dedicated_canyon.txt
12: run the batch file, make sure to allow through the firewall - if there are any errors, take a screenshot of the errors if you can


- players inside your LAN (inside your house) will have to connect through "local play" -> "local network"
- players outside your LAN (not in your house) will have to connect through "online play"

this is pretty much just a tweeked version of https://www.uaseco.org/documentation/installation.php but i did have a few issues as a noobie that i am, i could not find the TMCanyonA.txt with the MP4 server files, but i found it on the old MP3 files, so i had to copy it from MP3, also same with the cfg.txt, and the batch file, i somehow couldnt figure the batch file out on MP4, but eventually i got it

hope this helps some other noobies like myself :thumbsup:

oh and you may have to port forward on your router to your internal ip:

Code: Select all

2350 udp + tcp
3450 udp + tcp
443 udp + tcp
80 udp + tcp

Hi Chaser,

this looks like the account data ( login / password ) for your dedicated server is wrong.

4: place all of the "TM******@nadeo.Title.Pack.gbx" files into "C:\ManiaplanetServer\MP4\Packs\"
Do title packs have to be in \Packs or in UserData\Packs? Found differing information regarding that.

Also, is it only needed so that clients can download the title pack or does the server also use it?

Is it possible to make the client download the title pack from maniaplanet directly, since maniaplanet hosts all of them anyway. The title pack I am using is 3.7 GB and my server's internet connection is slow.

I believe the custom title packs you will use for your server are all supposed to go in UserData\Packs, even though they "can" go in the other location. I believe Nadeo uses this convention so you can update your server files with their updates without tainting the custom things you wish to use.

I also believe the server and client need to have matching versions of the title pack, so you will need to download that 3.xGB file.
