1. TrackMania Server Mar 25, 2010, 14:04  Xymph 
 
We've set up a multiplayer game server for TrackMania Nations Forever, accessible via this link if you already have this free game installed.

Why TrackMania?

This is an experiment, and for an outline and discussion of our considerations, see here.

What do you need to try it?

Download and install the client from this official link or this mirrors list. Next download and apply the latest patch.

How do you configure it?

When starting the game for the first time, a network prompt may appear so you can instruct your firewall to allow this game. Then you'll need to pick a unique player login, which will be confirmed via email. Next, you can change your nickname in the Profile section (see this tutorial for the formatting and color codes you could apply), and learn the key mapping in the Profile->Inputs tab. To chat in the game and enter chat commands (which start with a '/'), use the Spacebar.

Where is the server?

If you enabled the 'tmtp:' file association during install, you can click on this link to join the server directly. Otherwise, go into Play Online->All and find the Blue's News server in the United States of America->California zone of the server browser. Once you've joined, use Add Server to Favorites from the ESC menu so next time you can locate it more quickly from the Play Online->Favorites tab.

What's on the server?

The server is loaded with a mix of standard Nadeo Stadium tracks, the Stadium tracks of the community-built StarTrack campaign, a bunch of classic Nations tracks, and some modern Forever tracks. But you can also add your favorite tracks from TMX, the central track exchange site. Enter the "/add" chat command with the TMX ID number, and a vote starts which, if passed, will add and queue the track for playing.

And then?

The game's official forums are the place to discuss TrackMania, and this list of links helps you find your way around the TM community. Have fun, and race on! Race
