Hi, I make very very long tracks that cannot be beaten in the regular time limit. (normally)
And the problem I'm having is when I use the server I don't know how to set the time limit to 'max'?
If you can help, Please & Thank you. :D

P.S. Mania Drive is a great game :D

Thanks !

I've some bad news for you: the "party timeout" is hard coded into the server ... It's a very silly choice, that's for sure :/

You may recompile the mania_server.c by yourself, so you'll be able to change the PARTY_TIMEOUT define, at the top of the file. We may help you to do so, if you want.

Hello,

Get raydium windows sdk http://raydium.org/data.php

either run compile_all.bat script, it will compile lot's of things and mania_drive server.

Or run codeblocks.bat. Open a template project un test directory, change the project to compile mania_server.

Normaly it will work.

Have a nice day
Ouille.

Hello,

I downloaded SDK for windows from link, extracted all files and ran Compile_All.bat.
After that I went into the Raydium file and ran Mania_Server which came up in Code Blocks.
Then I changed PARTY_TIMEOUT to what I want it at, and then ran Compile_All.bat again.
Then I tryed to run the server from the SDK folder to see if it worked, it tells me I have no server tracks .txt file, so I made one and put a Mania_Drive track inside the SDK folder with Mania_Server.
It still says I have no server tracks .txt file, so I copied the Mania_Server.exe file into my Mania Drive game folder, however it still won't run.
Please help, Thanks!

It should. What's the error in this case ?
Just to be sure, the file is supposed to be named "mania_server_tracks.txt", should list track names (filename *without* .mni extension), one per line, and must be in the same directory as the mania_server.exe file (same applies for .mni files).

Hello,

I was replacing Mania_Server in the Mania Drive folder,
After looking at your post, I found that the Mania_Server in the Mania Drive folder is a link to the actual Mania_Server in the Mania Drive\Game folder.
Everything works great now.
Thank you very much for your time and help. :D

I have one more question, if you don't mind answering.
I hear talk about a Mania Drive 2?
About how long will it be untill its realeased? If you know. :D

Thanks!
