What version of the dedicated server are you using? You should make sure you're on the latest version.

In example i've uploaded this map to Mania-Exchange that a friend of mine did, it's ID is 164124.
Just added that map which was working fine for me:

Its like Miss already said here you should use the most recent version of the dedicated server.

On the first page of this thread you see the most important thing of this thread: the tutorial! (thanks for this great tutorial Reaby! :thumbsup: )
In the tutorial you can also see the following instructions:

1. Installing dedicated server and title packs you wish to run

You can get the latest dedicated server always here:
http://files.v04.maniaplanet.com/server ... Latest.zip
So please use this instruction when you set up a server with this link http://files.v04.maniaplanet.com/server ... Latest.zip
and also important, check the forum to see if there are any updates of the dedicated server. Normally when you have updates of the client, a serverupdate will follow soon, or is already there!

In addition to your mapadd: recently there were a lot of updates of the dedicated server to add new blocks especially in stadium mostly related to the ZeratorCup. So if someone adds these new blocks to a map and your server is not updated, the map simply wont run.

Good luck in updating.

You didn't download the TMCanyon titlepack or you put it in the wrong folder?

Also, it's likely Filename.Map.Gbx, eg. you're missing the ".gbx" extension.

1. Installing dedicated server and title packs you wish to run

You can get the latest dedicated server always here:
http://files.v04.maniaplanet.com/server ... Latest.zip

Unzip the file at directory for example c:\dedicated\maniaplanet\ on linux maybe /opt/maniaplanet/ is good, but it's up to you where to place the dedicated server files. On windows good rule is not to have spaces and use only alpha-numeric (a-z and 0-9) values on the directory name.

Next step is to just start the dedicated executable once. On windows just double click the ManiaplanetServer.exe on Linux you might type:

Code: Select all

./ManiaPlanetServer
It will not start yet properly, and you will get errors. Don't worry it's all fine, since we've not configured the server. This is though important, because it will generate additional directory structures which you'll need to complete the tutorial.

Next step is to download the title pack(s) you wish the dedicated to be run, in this tutorial I'm using stadium as example
and the file you need is: https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx
now place the file at: dedicated\UserData\Packs

Here is a list of the default title packs for your convenience:

Trackmania:
https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx
https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx
https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx
https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx

Shootmania:
https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx
https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx
https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx
https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx
https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx
https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx
https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx
https://v4.live.maniaplanet.com/ingame/ ... e.Pack.gbx

If you wish to run other title packs you have installed for the game --> you can get the title pack from your game's packs data folder:
C:\Users\*your username*\Documents\ManiaPlanet\Packs
How can I verify the files in the zip? (Signature or original verifiable...)

As you see there's no checksums posted with the release of the server.

If you wish to be such sure you have right contents, I believe using the official apt-repostitory might be your choise :)
