Any alternatives to randmx?

Post by coolsnake » 02 Jan 2014, 12:50

At one point you could type in randmx in the browser and it would download a random track for you to play.

Someone posted it in this thread.

Now when I try to start it up it says "Something went wrong. Please reload".

Anyone else having this problem or is it just because I was running Trackmania Stadium from Steam?
If any of you script magicians could replicate it, it would be awesome, I always loved that functionality. :thumbsup:

    You are lucky :shock:

    I just randomly clicked on this thread :lol:

    Since it is my "manialink" i found out that this API url of maniapark: http://api.mania-exchange.com/tm/tracks/list/latest does not work at the moment.

    I'll see if i can hotfix something :P

    edit: I added a fallback now. As long as their error is not fixed, my script will only select ids up to 55995 :roflol:

    apparently randmx isn't working properly anymore "again" :oops:
    Sometimes it is like it downloads something but then tells "Couldn't determine the title to use" and sometimes "invalid map, try again".
    Any idea?

    The invalid map error apperas if the track with the random generated number does not exists. So its not preventable sinve the script does not make any checks if the maps exists :)

    The other error may be caused by not existing titles, but i am not sure about it. Maybe i'll try to reproduce the error tomorrow :)

    would be great if you could spent a little time, but it is not high priority :thumbsup:
    Strange is only that when I tried, I encountered only failing maps, and I tried at least 10x to use it.
    Perhaps randmx was chosings maps for other titles than the currently active one?
    But if it is really random, there should be the chance for working maps as well :)
