New Release and new features for ManiaHost!
Now, Hosters who want to propose a dedicated hosting can do it.
The procedure is pretty simple, you just have to put the login and the password of the dedicated account, then follow the instructions. You have to access to your server in command line or with a remote desktop, to use this feature.

For people who already have setup ManiaHost, you have to download the following package http://files.trackmaniaforever.com/mani ... pgrade.zip
For other people it's this package http://files.trackmaniaforever.com/mani ... er_2.0.zip

To setup follow readme instructions.

Hi,

I've set up a ManiaHost on my server, first of all it's just a great soft!
Just few things are missing I think, for example, enable the user to choose between a united or a nation dedicated will be nice.

It will nice too if we can set a maximal rent duration. I'd like to provide dedicated for 3-4 days max. (I can't provide dedicated for 500c/month :lol: )
