Hello!

Dedicated server for TMF, version 2008-12-05
You can download it from
http://files2.trackmaniaforever.com/Tra ... -12-05.zip
or
http://files2.trackmaniaforever.com/Tra ... -12-05.tgz

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

Changes:
  • Referee: Fixes the issue with the referree banning legit players. (with the "Fiber Terminate" error)
  • (bug introduced in 2008-10-07) Players were banned because of "coherence check" in some multilaps challenges.
  • CupMode: Make sure the scores stay properly ordered, when a winner changes to spectator mode.
  • CupMode: Sometimes players were still included in the race for the second place after having won the match.
  • Referee: Better timeout to avoid kicking referees at the end of a race in rounds mode
  • Added some checks to detect players faking their logins. (will only report the abuse to the master server for now)
  • Add some infos in the log when a player is banned.
  • Referee: Big challenges with heavy mediatracker use were locking the server in the podium when a referee was enabled.

For referees, you also need a new fix for the game:
It's available here:
nations: http://files2.trackmaniaforever.com/TmN ... _Setup.exe
united: http://files2.trackmaniaforever.com/TmU ... _Setup.exe

(it's really only needed for use as referee, it's exactly identical to 2008-07-30, except for the referee mode fixes.)

Code: Select all

Ban (playerlogin): .
Quick question about the ban. What is the use of a logfile if the ban option is written in it but it doesnt show anymore figures to the solution.

Code: Select all

Ban dccw1lla: Because of Cheat.
would be a nice option to see it for the future or anyother reasons.

Damn! I can't use the game fix since my game is installed by Steam! Any chances to get in .zip or .rar?

I made a rar with all files which changed from 2.11.11 to 2.11.19 : http://dedimania.net/gamefix/tmuf_fix2.11.19.rar (i compared both directory using winmerge).
Of course, make a backup of your game directory, and of your My Documents\Trackmania directory too, before overwriting files !
And read the readme.txt

Yeah, I know that. I'm downloading. :D Is there any difference between Steam and the original one? And ya know, I hate Steam because whenever I've exited the game, an ad will appear. It advertising TMUF tho. Oh, does TMUF can only buy online? I'm on Malaysia and I wonder if there is any store that I can go to buy TMUF. :D

No, at least in some countries (that sure for western europe), but probably yes in some (or many?) others. For Malaysia i don't know.

Ok, so these updates are primarily for servers, but I am especially interested in the referee files... how does one become a referee? Is it voluntary on a per server basis, or is there a (national or international) pool of refs available for use at all servers? :?

A referee is in fact a game client that is dedicated to the verification of times on a server.
Everybody can be referee when playing on a server and it's also possible to let the game start without graphics , just to validate the times.
