Hy all and thanks for the Questions to DeReCo
Looks like we made good work so far then if u like it
At moment i am trying to switch to eclipse but seems not so easy as wanted... problems with using ftp in it
but thats no problem of trackmania or DeReCo... only i need a little time for it i cant use to fix last parts of DeReCo... Maybe someone uses eclipse for php + ftp also and can help a little? *g*
But back to DeReCo
i should really sit down and put the core-parts together to give them out as a very first open beta
but working so much on it so often and only expanding it more and more... grmlz sry.
i will do it soon and then searching 3-4 admins (german preferred) that want to test to install and configure it first (some config-tools are inside also) before making it downloadable for all. As it is VERY different to *aseco, fast or other tools used on most servers also the configs and installs are different...
a few words to DeReCo itself:
like most others based on PHP (5.2 or newer preferred - maybe 5.1 or 5.0 running also but untested atm)
easy extendable via modules - also current features are mostly separated (not all)
ingame-admin-area - nearly no need for chat-commands from changing or restarting tracks up to some tm-server-configurations like password, servername, playercount,... with possibility of saving and switching between up to 5 base-serversettings ingame)
single- and multi-environment-support (first beta partly limited to stadium)
single- or multi-server-support (running more instances of dereco even with different configs - also a few controlls can be made from a single server to all running instances)
different optical settings via xml-configs
some performance- and memory-saving functions like internal caches, datacollectors/sorters to make it fast also - dont want to go to any details atm but it helps
features (most of them should be in the first beta - but maybe not all)
extendable via modules (manual to create this will come later - maybe ask if wanted
more finished modules but mostly NOT in first beta:
dynamic tracklist (supporting >100.000 tracks,...)
!atm ONLY running under a LINUX Apache Server - no Windows - no other PHP-Server... working on it.
atm there are running 10 servers with it - to see on http://trackmania.speedy64.de
feel free to connect and look to dereco
servers are located in Germany->NRW->Dortmund and Germany->NRW->Cologne
if u want to see the ingame-admin-area for example - contact me and i will give u mod- or admin-rights (only for test-time) on my servers (the last 3 in that list - but: web-list isnt live - only updated about all 60 minutes!)
ok enough for the moment
feel free to answer
tips, bugreports or suggestions welcome
and sorry for long development-time - but good things need time
and the end is REALLY close.
