To make a TMN-F dedicated, you have to set in the config: <packmask>stadium</packmask>, else your server will not be visible by TMN Forever games.

Setting up a TMN-Forever-server you'll need this server: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=14203

You've probably tried the one for Trackmania Nations ESCW

I've used the TmDedicatedServer_2006-05-30, I've used the same one with mine, and it works fine... :S

She's using windows 7... that a problem? :/

If you're using the server for TMN ESCW look in this post:
viewtopic.php?f=28&t=1350&start=0

You'll have to use a startup-script with /game specified like this:
"C:\Program Files\trackmania nations eswc\trackmaniaserver.exe" /game=nations /dedicated_cfg=dedicated.cfg /game_settings=MatchSettings/stunt.txt /internet

But you're sure it's for TMN ESCW you want to create a server?

I'm not making a server for TMN ESCW. I'm creating the server for TM Nations Forever..

The TmDedicatedServer_2006-05-30 is NOT for Trackmania Nations Forever. That is why I gave you the correct link in my first post :)
viewtopic.php?f=28&t=14203

Download that one and you'll be on your way :thumbsup:
