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:

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:

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 :)
