ServerMania 0.96 for TrackMania Forever is there ! (By Cyrlaur on 19/04/2008 at 21:05)


Ok the new ServerMania for Trackmania Forever (TMUF & TMUF) is there, even it's not explicitly written in the title. It means that there is no more different edition so United and Classic Edition are gone, and also TMO, TMS, TMN (ESWC) and TMU are no longer supported.

Actually if you decide to upgrade to this new version it means you simply move to Forever and its new dedicated server ( If you still want to run dedicated server for old TM games you'll have to look there for classic edition files (TMO/TMS/TMN) and there for TMU.

As said before it's all new, so you'll have to use the new Forever dedicated server and to start from scratch for server configuration as there is many new parameters in the new server config file, so delete any old server configuration and set a new one.
If you want to run a dedicated server for TMNF you'll have to create another account using the game and use it for your server and don't forget to set Packmask to 'Stadium' in server configuration.

Support of Forever is not all that this new version brings, for more details just see development section as usual.

Have an happy Forever hosting with ServerMania wink
Small fixing update (By Cyrlaur on 13/01/2008 at 17:03)
A small update this time mainly to fix an issue from last update.

Hopefully this could be the good one to wait for "TM Forever".
Ending year update (By Cyrlaur on 23/12/2007 at 15:44)
Here come an update for both ServerMania edition (0.89 CE/0.93 UE) before Forever edition of TMU & TMN comes out next year which should put an end to Classic Edition of ServerMania.

Whereas you can see all changes in development section as usual, just one word on this new feature : Ability to move a challenge (check) to any place in playlist by using "move to highlighted challenge" context menu command.


So how it works ? First step is to check in the list the challenge you want to move to another position in playlist. Then right click on where you want this challenge to be moved. This will highlight the line where your mouse is as well as display a context menu. Finally as shown on the picture above, just click on "Move to Highlighted challenge" so that your initially selected challenge will be moved just under the highlighted one.

And that's it, this the way I've implemented this frequently requested feature.
Notice that player list has a context menu (with right click) like the server challenge list one.

At last, I wish a merry christmas to all ServerMania users and even more to all of you reading this wink
ServerMania update and some more ... (By Cyrlaur on 21/03/2007 at 17:14)
Small update with some fixes and a few new features. You can look at full changelog in development section.

So this is version 0.92 (UE) for United and 0.88 (CE) for the others TrackMania. Unless big problems are discovered this should be the last update for Classic Edition.
United edition is now available to download directly on the website and the ManiaLink will be updated soon ... and by the way you should have seen that the website has been updated as well since few days wink

For the future I've still some new things I want to do but I want to take some time to make a little more documentation about ServerMania.

Finally don't forget, if you don't have already done it, to update your TrackMania United dedicated server to the last version (23-02-2007).
Notice that I now only give link of the official distributions of the dedicated servers.
ServerMania United Edition available ! (By Cyrlaur on 26/11/2006 at 01:36)
It's ready and you can get it on the also new "ServerMania" ManiaLink page only (in TrackMania United of course).

No changelog yet but you should be aware of this points :
- Downloading ServerMania is costing some coppers but updates will be free thanks to Easy Update system.
- The website here is not updated with United Edition infos. You'll not find any infos/resources for United Edition there yet.
- You'll have to find the required files (dedicated server exe ...) on your own or you'll have to let ServerMania download the required files for you.
- You'll have to ask for special keys on to create a dedicated server account for now.
- Install it in another folder than Classic Edition if you still want to use the old edition.

ServerMania 0.82 update : (By Cyrlaur on 02/06/2006 at 13:03)
So here comes a new update for ServerMania.

The most important change is that the option system has been fully reworked so that you can define several servers.
Game, server exe location and all other options can be set for each server and the value you choose can be the same for severval servers.

Thanks to this system you'll be able to run several servers at one time and to control one of them (yes only one for now).
Just remember that you have to set differnet server and xml-rpc port value for each server if you want to run more than one at one time.

Finally you can find full changelog in development section

Ok It's time for me to finally release the first ServerMania's public version and for you to experience a new way to host TrackMania fun games smile

Oh yes ... let's introduce what ServerMania is. ServerMania is a windows application which allows you to control and setup easyly a TM dedicated server. It's in some way an advanced gamecontroller like from Nadeo.

ServerMania alos brings some friendly advanced features in this first version like "Random Map Mode" or "Automatic Welcome Messages".

To be able to run a dedicated server with ServerMania you'll need the "TM Dedicated Server" from Nadeo. I provide in the download section an archive called "" which contains the most recent dedicated server and all the files needed to launch a dedicated server (you still can choose to dowload the full version including the development tools on

You'll also find on the download page the ServerMania setup program (or the binary archive which allows a quick update).

You should have look to "ReadMe" file includes in both installation archives (or by going to FAQ section) to know how to quickly start a server using ServerMania.

Ok that's all for now, ... happy hosting with ServerMania wink
