The dedicated server release 2006-05-30 was probably the last one for TMO/TMS/TMN, you can download it there :
TmDedicatedServer_2006-05-30.zip (Free.fr) or TmDedicatedServer_2006-05-30.zip
-> You'll find in the file for both Windows and Linux versions !
-> It's the same server for TMN, TMO et TMSX Very Happy

If you search the dedicated for TMU, go there : viewtopic.php?t=6321

Read carefully the readme !

* You can probably find other topics about the dedicated on the forum !
BlaHitis tutorial about dedicated is here : viewtopic.php?f=29&t=674

To test if your server (dedicated or ingame) is reachable from internet, you can use this script : http://slig.free.fr/TM/dedicated/tm_srv_tst.php (the test is tcp only, so if your players tell you that your serveur can't be join in udp, then you probably not made things for udp like you done for tcp (about redirections and firewall).

* Don't forget that you must have an account and specify its login and password in the dedicated.cfg ! To make you dedicated account, it depends upon the game (it needs the cd-key for TMO and TMSX) :
- For TMSX : http://www.trackmaniasunrise.com/dedicated/indexUk.php
- For TMO : http://www.trackmania.com/dedicated/indexUk.php
- For TMN : make an alternative account from the game itself. Now login should be created automatically if coutry is indicated and login is not already used.
... or, for TMN only, just indicate an unused login, password and nation in the config file. If you made the account that way, you can change the nation using (change ... in the url with your account infos): https://game.trackmanianations.com/onli ... .&nation=..


The server should be reachable on main port TCP and UDP (default 2350, preferably change it to 2352), optionally on p2p port TCP (default 3450, preferably change it to 3452), and if remote control is needed on xmlrpc port TCP (default 5000). So you will have to make on your nat-router the redirections for these ports to your server IP (which should be fixed, not dynamic), and be sure to not have a firewall preventing your server to be joinable on these ports too.


Windows users: if you have invalid time problems, try this (thanks to TrabTowN and eyez) :
- open taskmanager
- go to the "Processes" tab
- right click on the server app
- set priority to "Above Normal"
- set affinity -> deselect all but one core (if multi core)


You can connect to your own server in LAN mode but not in internet mode ? go there !


Note: The release 2007-02-21 have some problems (player ban on multilap maps in timeattack mode), replace it with this one !


You can look the tmu dedicated readme, or read this tutorial by Flo, anyway the way to use the dedicated is the same that for the previous TMO/TMU/TMN one (so you can refer to all tutorials about it, this one from Blahitis for example: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=674), except for that : the option '/game=' has disappeared (it's always TMU), and the dedicated.cfg file have now to be in the GameData/Config/ directory. Another change : a TMU server MUST be joinable on its p2p ports, so if you are behing a NAT router, you have to redirect the main server port (tcp and udp) and the p2p server port (tcp) to make it visible and joinable by players.

To make your TMU dedicated account, see there : https://www.trackmania.com/tmu-dedicated/

If you have problems, first try to see in topics about the old dedicated if you find the solution please. It really work the same way.

For TMU server utilities, see the 2nd post in this topic.


* Don't forget that tracks have to be in your dedicated GameData sub-directory, at the places described in your matchsettings file !

(the dedicated server is distributed with permission of Hylis and/or xbx of course)

- remoteCP : viewtopic.php?t=2501
- ServerMania : http://cyrlaur.free.fr/ServerMania , viewtopic.php?t=1026&highlight=servermania
- Fast3.1 : viewtopic.php?t=6842 , server script with records and chat commands
- ASECO : viewtopic.php?t=2370 , a Fast-like script by the primary author of Fast, working only with new dedicated (minimum 2006-03-24 dedicated beta release required)
- ONYX : http://dedimania.com

- For command line control: rpc_utilities.zip

- To test if your server (dedicated or ingame) is reachable from internet, you can use this script : http://slig.free.fr/TM/dedicated/tm_srv_tst.php (the test is tcp only, so if your players tell you that your serveur can't be join in udp, then you probably not made things for udp like you done for tcp (about redirections and firewall).

PS: post here if you have some link or info about those utilities or others, i'll add them here !

Is there a new version of gamecontroller? Because it seems not to work correctly with the new dedicated server :? It connect correctly to the server, but all editions are not applied (change password, max player, max point, Team mode=>Round mode, .....) The only function that i still can use is restart a map or next map :cry:

There is for sure a bug with the gamesettings files because here an other example
and btw , i tried on 2 computer .


If you go in your nation game directory of tracks . You have 4 settings there .
AdvancedTraining.txt
BeginnerTraining.txt
ExpertTraining.txt
ProRace.txt

Out of those 4 , only ADVANCEDTRANING is working , all others dont work .
Also , if you start the server with advancedtraining , it start with the first track , if you close it and restart it , it start but with the second track . Close it again and start it again , it start with the third track .

:evil:

Thanks for the info (confirmation). Hope it will be avalaible quickly...

Just test it:
- V0.62 (the only one avalaible to download) doesn't find the new dedicated server, until i rename the exe of dedicated to old name. But after that, i have some error messages when i try to change settings (password, mode, ...). I suppose it has the same problem as the gamecontroller....
- Bigger problem, my dedicated server run on an old Duron 800Mhz computer, and with servermania, windows are flickering, and is really slow...and it use 100% of my CPU :? Not really good for the server.

I don't search special feature, i simply want to play TMO league match in good condition, what is impossible till now (ingame server doesn't count points correctly and old dedicated has problem with start synchro :? Hope new one resolved the problem.... ). I use game controller only to switch from round to team mode (round during training, team during match), change password (from private team password to match password), and max point for the lap map....everything without restarting the server and 'kicking' everyone out (what is the only feature really interresting...)

Perhaps for LE7 :roll:
