Your tracks folder hasn't quite been set correctly ;)

Should be "C:\Program Files\DnD Networks\Onyx\lib\Nadeo\TrackmaniaServer_2008-04-16\GameData\Tracks"

Ok....slight confusion here.

Here is my log file path:
C:\Program Files\DnD Networks\Onyx\lib\Nadeo\TrackmaniaServer_2008-04-16\Logs\GameLog.4thserver.txt

Here is my tracks directory path:
C:\Program Files\DnD Networks\Onyx\lib\Nadeo\TrackmaniaServer_2008-04-16\GameData\Tracks\Challenges\Downloaded

With these paths set as they are, i get the error as shown in my screenshot.

So....my question is this....WHY?

What have i done wrong or what am i missing here????

Have you tried setting the tracks directory in the stats program to C:\Program Files\DnD Networks\Onyx\lib\Nadeo\TrackmaniaServer_2008-04-16\GameData\Tracks?

c:\progra~1\DnDNet~1\Onyx\lib\Nadeo\TrackmaniaServer_2008-04-16\Logs\GameLog.4thserver.txt

Ok, back to basics:
Are the TMFServer and stats programs running on the same physical machine?
If they are, what OS?

Having written that down....it kinda sounds stupid !! :oops:

I cant have php running on my dedicated windows 2003 server.....therefore, i am looking for a stats system of some sort (just to display the current server and who is playing in it will be enough) to display on my website.

Running this program, I was hoping that by using the IP etc of the server, would be sufficient to pass the information via the xmlrpc port?....Is that wrong?

The locations i am using for the log file and the tracks directory are the paths on my windows 2003 server.

Can i get this to work with the setup i have or ........ is there something else out there that would enable me to do a similar thing? :thumbsup:

Since the file you're trying to parse is on a totally different machine, there's no easy way to do it.

Someone else may have a suggestion, but I've never tried to do it and wouldn't have a clue where to start.

my suggestion would be to somehow send the log file(s) from your game server to your web server and run TMOS from there. Maybe a shell script that runs the ftp get to grab the file, then fires off the tmos_parser.php :)
