Dedicated server for TMF, version 2008-05-19

Post by xbx » 19 May 2008 15:21

Here is the dedicated for Trackmania United Forever and Trackmania Nations Forever.

You can download it from
http://files2.trackmaniaforever.com/Tra ... -05-19.zip
or
http://files2.trackmaniaforever.com/Tra ... -05-19.tgz

(both contain the same files, and windows and linux executable.)

Changes:
  • AutoSaveReplays is no longer ignored when using SetServerOptions.
  • StartServerInternet() doesn't work like in TMU/TMN -> return an error instead of pretending everything is fine...
  • A few settings that influence the server ressource usage (SetMaxPlayers, SetMaxSpectators, EnableP2PUpload, EnableP2PDownload, AutoSaveReplays, AutoSaveValidationReplays) are now reserved to the SuperAdmin.
  • Avoid to waste server P2P and cache by downloading the skins, avatar and lightmaps that everybody already has. (the ones given with the game)
  • other little bug fixes (like the server taking hours to launch if there are many autosaved replays.)
from 2008-05-07:
  • crash when a tcp connection is broken under certain rare conditions.
  • server restart no longer wipes the guestlist.txt and blacklist.txt
  • ForceSpectatorTarget() now works with cameratype = 2 and no target
  • Cup Mode: the game no longers loops when there's a winner and everybody else is disconected or in spectator mode.
  • use fallback timer for FreeBSD
  • detailed playerinfos work for the server login
  • new functions SetBuddyNotification() GetBuddyNotification() to be able to disable the chat message. (either per player or for all the players on the server)

looks more like an issue with access rights than with freebsd.
can you create the file "touch GameData/Config/Config/Default.SystemConfig.Gbx" ?

xbx: This may not have been mentioned recently, but I think the old TMU problem where having a track file removed/re-added with different UID would cause it to be ignored until the server was restarted has returned. I haven't experienced it myself, but there's been a few reported in the forums.

Can anyone confirm/deny this is still a problem?

Yes, only the executables have changed.
