Channels Programs: Information and Guidelines!

Post by Alinoa » 10 May 2017, 09:20

Hi everyone :)

I invite you to read the preview about channels again before starting to submit an episode for a program of a channel. ... -channels/

To sum up, there are two channels: one for Shootmania and one for Trackmania.
Each channels are divided into programs. And programs are divided into episodes.
For example, in the Channel "Trackmania", there can be a program "Trackmania 2 Canyon" and there can be an episode of Trackmania 2 Canyon Time Attack between 7:00pm and 8:00 pm on Saturday.
You can submit your episode based on any program of any title (including customized title).

  1. Add your maps into the map manager:
  2. Create your server here: settings and add your playlist)
    When creating a matchmaking server, pay attention to have the following settings:
    For Lobby server, this server must be visible and the the value of this parameter "S_MatchmakingMode" must be 1
    For Match servers, these servers must be HIDDEN and the value of this parameter "S_MatchmakingMode" must be 2
  3. Create your program here:
    Please note that you can add an URL in your program creation for inviting players to provide you with feedback or comments.
    Players will see this URL just 5 minutes before the end of your program.
  4. VERY IMPORTANT -TEST OUT your program by launching a server from your program created and if everything works well, then you can ask for having your program scheduled.

ONLY Nadeo can schedule a program. Players can only create a program and then asking for having their program scheduled.
To submit an episode, please pm Alinoa and Cerovan by providing us with the following information (one week before the episode that you would like to schedule):
  1. Id of your program
  2. Time of the episode
  3. Duration

3.GUIDELINES TO FOLLOW for submitting a program and having your program authorized in a channel:
  • Your episode must be for all players.
  • Later we will open Bronze / Silver and Gold episodes.
  • Please make sure that your maps are respawnable.
  • Players can join the episode when they want so it means that competitive events can be integrated only if they are for all players and if players can join them when they want.
  • You can't use or reproduce the program of someone else.
  • Your contents must follow the copyright.
  • Your episode can't highlight inappropriate or abusive contents.
  • You can ask for having an episode scheduled every week but we reserve the right to replace this program by another player's program or a Nadeo one to our discretion.
Happy creation :D

Some news about program management :
From now you can create episode and add a little description/changelog to it. The idea is that you tell your players what is new, what has changed from previous episode. It can be about the playlist you have just changed or everything else you think that your players should know about.

Do not hesitate to ask questions :)
