Trackmania Beta3 Dedicatedserver, v2011-08-16

Post by xbx » 17 Aug 2011, 12:13

Hi folks!

Due to popular demand, here is the beta dedicated server to go with the "Trackmania² Canyon Multiplayer beta"..

http://files.maniaplanet.com/beta3/Mani ... -08-16.zip

It's still in the beta stages, and quite a few things are meant to be changed or are not fully functional yet.
And it's a beta build, so it writes tons of debug log.

But it works good enough for the beta! :pil

It is very similar to TMF, so you won't feel disoriented..
There are a few differences though. I list the one I can think of and I'll edit the post as needed.
  • as for the game, the directory layout changed, and challenges are now called "maps"(*)
  • There's a subfolder "GameData/" and subfolder "UserData/" -> put your stuff in "UserData/" (I haven't made my mind about this yet, I may suppress the GameData folder in the end)
  • you need /title=TMCanyon on the command line and set the packmask=0x0FFFFFFF in the config.txt (until I decide how to deal with this)
  • There's one extra criteria for the maps to be accepted (they must be "validated" as for TMF, and they also must have their lightmaps computed)
  • xmlrpc: the numbering of trackmania race modes are changed. 0 is now 'script' (unfortunately unavailable at this point), and 1 is round and so on..
  • ...
As for TMF, you can go and create accounts to use with the dedicated on the player page at http://player.maniaplanet.com .

a bug in this version has been discovered:
To workaround a potential crash, I recommend that you go no further than 60 players.


Other caveat to be aware of: at this point, the server has to send a large amount of data on each map change (~400Ko x nbplayers)

(*) I haven't yet changed the xmlrpc api to reflect this. I will however soon add the new "xxxMap()" methods - but I will keep the deprecated "xxxChallenge()" so it should be mostly compatible and painless.

oh and the community developers have been at hard work during the previous beta, updating their plugins and server managers, so I guess they'll post their updated tools soon too.
nice work!
