Many thanks for thanks, good that the tutorial has helped many of you :thumbsup:

Have to mention many thanks to haagse for reminding me! The tutorial was missing ladder server section!
So I added it to config and also added few more info for dedicated command-line options and additional links to documentation for frequent errors.

Using your tutorial right now.

Thanks to a another player I found out that in Step 1, and the server setup file is extracted, I can then run the executable and all the directories needed in the UserData directory are placed for me. (UserData directory was empty originally).

by running the executable, i now have all directories you mentioned to place needed files.

please edit and include this procedure into step one.

Also, I had to ask my friend how/where to find current Validation Key.

Also, I found that the Dedicated Config file copied had Title as "SMStorm" so had to find out what goes here for Stadium.

It would be nice to see an updated example .bat file.

my suggestions to make it easier.

Many thanks for this tutorial.

I guess you missed the sentence here:
reaby wrote: After unzipping run the dedicated executable once, this will generate additional directory structures which you'll need.
This will ease you to place the titlepacks and matchsettings and maps to right places.
But as requested, I try to express it even better.

Good point! The info for obtaining that is indeed missing from the tutorial. I'll add!

You can ignore this, it gets overwritten with the batch file parameter.
I add note that you should indeed ignore this.

What's wrong with the current example provided ?
I don't know how to express it better, as it reads at the moment:
reaby wrote: At windows you can create a new file and call it "stadium.bat", or use windows shortcut:

Code: Select all

ManiaPlanetServer /title=TMStadium@nadeo /dedicated_cfg=dedicated_cfg.txt /game_settings=MatchSettings/maplist.txt
Thanks for your points. I'll add and correct your the changes you requested.

edit: Alright I finished the changes for tutorial :)

Updated how to access in-game mail (and optionally how to use player page) send planets.
Other than that it should be up-to-date.

Hi there guys!

@reaby, thank you very much for your tutorial. I've been able to follow through it, but I have a problem.

I can find my server listed on the game, but once I try to connect on it there's an error message saying that it wasn't possible to connect to the server.

Do you guys have any clue of what can be the issue?

Thanks!

That is typically a firewall issue. Do you have access to the router and/or software firewall your server is behind to make sure the application is allowed through? Default ports are 2350 and 3450.

I opened 2 ports on Windows firewall and used those on the server configuration files.

What and how should I verify if my router configuration is the source of the problem?

Thanks!
