If you've read anything at all about Dedicated Gameserver in Trackmania, you'll probably know at least two things:
Dedicated Server are the most exciting way to play the game,
Dedicated Server can be really, I mean really, complicated to configure.
TMSiaB v2.0.3 is set to change the bad habit ... TMSiaB is different from the normal!. For a start, it's not complicated. TMSiaB has been developed for the masses. It´s easy to start, install, administer and reliable.

A little Video to explain, what I mean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swNCq80r ... re=related
Configuration will be carried out via a nearly Idiotproof Userinterface( "normally", you can´t do something false )
Insert the Live-CD in a PC ( 0.4 to 1 GHz, 256 MB RAM -384 MB without a "swappartition") and a CD-ROM-Drive or run it under VirtualBox ), start it, configure the IP ( klick on the "Network-Icon at the toolbar ), klick at the "TMSIAB-Icon" in the, fill in the desired data for the server, klick "OK" and the Server will start.
Everyone connected to TM will be able to join the server and drive together.
Each Dedicated Server can be started both in Internetmode and in LAN-Partymode.
If you are carrying out instructions, you will have a smooth running Dedicated Server in about 2 minutes after switching on your PC.
Insert CD - boot it - Play! *G*
Shortly after your Dedicated Server is online, you´ll be able to login at remoteCP with your TM-Loginname and password "admin" ( a link is placed in Opera and at the bottom Iconbar ). Having done this you´ll be able to add Tracks, setting up "Matchsettings", restart rounds and all the rest of it.
If you have any questions concerning "Dedicated Server", "remoteCP", "[LIVE]", "ASECO": Please place them in the right threads! - I´m not the coder of this software! ^^
This is, what to expect:
Klick on the TM-Icon at the lower Iconbar and the NIP will start:
Choose your type of Server and LAN or Internetgame:
On the next Tab, you can choose your favorite Plugin:
Fill in your ServerLogin and PW ( if you don´t have one, klick on the lower buttons to create one )
Choose a Servername for the Serverlist and a SuperAdminPW and your Ingameplayername ( to be InGameAdmin )
Choose the Ports from a Dropdownlist:
If you would like to enable "Spectatormode" -> You can *G*
Simply klick "OK" at the end and the server will start:

Download the image at http://tmsiab.tmu-xrated.de ( approx. 140 MB - just burn it ^^ )
If you´re not able to run TMSiaB on a Stand-Alone-PC:
It is possible to run it in a Virtual Machine called "VirtualBox" on the same PC your TMU/TMO/TMN/TMS is running.
The Guideline to install TMSiaB in VirtualBox: Install in VirtualBox/Windows
