Unable to open local server

Post by elie520 » 01 Jun 2019, 10:41

Hi all,

I'd just like to mention that for a few months now, I'm unable to create a local server in the competition titlepack. I get
the following error.

If anyone knows how to go around this issue, I'd be really glad to be informed :)

All the best.
Élie

How are you trying to create the server? Did you add maps to the playlist? Which maps did you add?

Thanks for your answer :)

I create it using the dedicated button ingame. I added Pulsar (one of the latest TCS maps) to the maplist, in Rounds mode. I also tried creating this server online, to no avail. But both offline and online worked very well prior to February 2019.

Cheers

Here's a grlorious 8-) paint montage to explain with more precision. I know of a few other people who have the exact same problem for months now, and it's actually really annoying because we're basically unable to train on a custom maplist, unless we own a VPS to host an online server. Also, this doesn't seem to happen with every map (I just tried with a zrt map, there was no problem).

I have the same error with dedicated (my post : viewtopic.php?f=262&p=307921)

With dedicated you can use: maniaplanet://join#=LocalServerAdress:Port , it's works but is not practical.

I will wait for the answer too ^^

Is the map saved in a folder with any non alphanumeric characters ? Things like "éàîù#!€" ? If you take the same map but put it directly inside the Maps folder, does it work ?

Thanks for your participation. The path to the folder contains only alphanumerical characters. I tried putting the map directly in the same folder, same error occured.
NEVERTHELESS, you were kind of right because I tried renaming the map file "test.gbx" and it worked... :o

The mapname contained a weird character making everything crash:

Code: Select all

ו
It's a hebrew character, called "vav". I think hebrew alphabet causes trouble bcs there is a weird thing going on in Windows with languages written from right to left
Do you think this issue will be fixed in the next client update?

Thanks for the tip <3
