Post subject:  LAN Multiplayer under Windows XP

Hi!
Can someone help me creating a multiplayer game in a LAN with two Win XP computers?
I tried to start mania_server.exe but this is the result:
Code:
Raydium: Raydium 3D Game Engine
Raydium: version 0.705
Raydium: command line args: OK
chdir: No error
Raydium: using 'C:\Documents and Settings\PC_Desktop/.raydium' as home dir
Raydium: timecall: win32 modulo every 19.98 minutes, modulodiv is 2^0
Raydium: timer: detection: 1 iterations: diff: 6 steps (3579545/sec)
Raydium: timecall: method accuracy = 0.002 ms (596590.81 Hz)
Raydium: timecall: Using basic gettimeofday() method
Raydium: timecall: OK (596590 Hz)
Raydium: timecall: softcall 0: 1 Hz (3579545 clocks interval)
Raydium: PHP support: OK
Raydium: network: OK
Raydium: network: server socket created
Raydium: network: server OK: waiting for clients (8 max) at udp port 29104
Raydium: webserver: OK
Raydium: web: starting Raydium HTTP server on port 29104
Raydium: network: now broadcasting : 'ManiaDrive Server. Use --title to change :
)' (ManiaDrive) version 10
Raydium: timecall: softcall 1: 1 Hz (3579545 clocks interval)
Raydium: timecall: softcall 2: 1 Hz (3579545 clocks interval)
Raydium: You need 'mania_server_tracks.txt' simple text track list file ! Server
 is disabled.
Raydium: ERROR ! cannot switch to track '' !

I tried also writing the requested "mania_server_tracks.txt" file simply renaming mania_tracklist.txt, but:
Code:
Raydium: Raydium 3D Game Engine
Raydium: version 0.705
Raydium: command line args: OK
chdir: No error
Raydium: using 'C:\Documents and Settings\PC_Desktop/.raydium' as home dir
Raydium: timecall: win32 modulo every 19.98 minutes, modulodiv is 2^0
Raydium: timer: detection: 1 iterations: diff: 4 steps (3579545/sec)
Raydium: timecall: method accuracy = 0.001 ms (894886.25 Hz)
Raydium: timecall: Using basic gettimeofday() method
Raydium: timecall: OK (894886 Hz)
Raydium: timecall: softcall 0: 1 Hz (3579545 clocks interval)
Raydium: PHP support: OK
Raydium: network: OK
Raydium: network: server socket created
Raydium: network: server OK: waiting for clients (8 max) at udp port 29104
Raydium: webserver: OK
Raydium: web: starting Raydium HTTP server on port 29104
Raydium: network: now broadcasting : 'ManiaDrive Server. Use --title to change :
)' (ManiaDrive) version 10
Raydium: timecall: softcall 1: 1 Hz (3579545 clocks interval)
Raydium: timecall: softcall 2: 1 Hz (3579545 clocks interval)
Raydium: Using repositories to get 'beg1' file
Raydium: No valid repository found for this file, aborting.
Raydium: ERROR ! cannot switch to track 'beg1' !

I also tried with a single-track (trying different tracks at once) tracklist, but the answer from mania_server.exe is the same.
And then I didn't understand if the multiplayer mode is played with more cars in the same track or is a time trial with other players?

Hello,

The problem already arise in this thread:

http://memak.raydium.org/viewtopic.php?t=306&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=15

But it's in french

Quote:
2) mania_server_tracks.txt
L'idée était de ne pas fournir de liste de circuits par défaut pour "forcer" l'administrateur du serveur à écrire sa propre liste, tout en connaissant du coup le fichier chargé de contenir cette liste.
Sachant qu'il était prévu un "éditeur de liste de circuits" dans ManiaDrive, cela tenait debout. Il est vrai que cette idée (l'éditeur) est laissée de coté pour l'instant, il parait logique de proposer une liste par défaut sur le repository. Je vais tacher d'y penser.



Just create a text file mania_server_tracks.txt and put tracks name one per line.
Or copy the content of mania_drive.story to have same tracks as in solo mode.

After this everything will be ok (i hope).

Have a nice day.
Ouille

Perfect!!
Thank you very much! I haven't found it 'cause i don't speak French...
I didn't try to play the game yet, but from the console it seems to work!
So the problem was that I didn't know that mania_server_tracks.txt is the list of the files (with .mni), and not the list of tracks (without .mni) like mania_tracklist.txt! :roll:
Thank you again!
Bye! :wink:
