How to upload a track once server is running with Xaseco

Post by vineeth.h » 17 Apr 2009 05:14

I have my own server which i run using the "TrackmaniaServer.exe" and Xaseco installed and run using the "aseco.bat" with all the settings initialised with all the FUFI widgets.
But the thing is i'm making new tracks all the time and each time i want to add the track to my permanent TrackList ,i have to shut down the server and add tracks to serverlist and save settings and restart the server which causes inconvenience to the players.

So what i need to know is whether there is ANY way to add tracks directly to permanent list without having to shut down the server each time!

Is there any command/way to do this in-game?

All/Any help would be appreciated.

3 choices
...you can use a program to connect via xmlrpc like servermania and add by browsing local folders and adding with a nice gui
...you can upload you tracks to tmx and once you know the TMX IDNumber you can then use /admin add TMXNumber in server to add from tmx
...you can install a system like remote cp .. wich is a website based gui in which you can upload maps and change settings (similar to server mania but a web application and not a true .exe application)

And the fourth option: /admin addlocal to add a track that you downloaded manually and put in the /GameData/Tracks/Challenges/Downloaded/ directory.

Jamie did, ServerMania or RemoteCP. :wink:

But you don't really need them as XAseco has various add commands built in. /admin add from TMX, /add from TMX by user vote (if $feature_tmxadd in rasp.settings.php is true), and the aforementioned /admin addlocal. Read/search the included documentation for more information.

Yes, via the aforementioned external programs or, perhaps quicker to set up, via the RPC utilities. With those you can send commands to the server directly from the command line, such as:

Code: Select all

sendcmd.php ChatSend "hi everybody"
Of course, all this is far easier in Linux than Windoze. :)
