Need to create private server

Post by mtaffer » 08 Jul 2013 07:10

Running into multiple problems. The first of which has to do with the player key I guess. I bought this on steam and did not ever get a "key"...I just launch it from steam. It goes to maniaplanet and my username and password is there and it just logs in.

I want to create a server on the internet for me and few guys I work with to play on.

I have downloaded trackmania server in a box. I'm confused about having to have another login? I have roadblocks that I can't seem to get past.

Yep i'm a Noob, but I got people waiting on my ability to get this done. I really need help.

Thanks guys,
mtaffer

I didn't mention this was for United Forever Star edition did I? I'm trying to create a server for that...I just recently bought it off of Steam and gifted some copies to buddies...but some of them have the free version. I just want to create a server for us to play from time to time...it won't be up 24/7.

Anyway, I posted on the link you sent and that guy just sent me a read only board and told me to dig through the stuff to find out how...not helpful at all.

If steam doesn't deal with keys, then how do I deal with that when asked for it...i'm really confused...

No, you didn't. Instead you said "It goes to maniaplanet" so Enryx referred you to the MP forums. As I said there, you have to be clear on which game you're talking about, and then use the appropriate forum for specific questions, after studying the available tutorials.

To set up a server that works for TMNF (the free version) too, you have to set up a Stadium server according to your tutorial of choice, then give the server logins to your friends to connect to. Take note of the Freezone regulations as well.

That's because of your own confusion tactics. :wink: But yeah, TMarc can occasionally jump into the fray too quickly.

Steam doesn't use keys for Maniaplanet (I got Stadium² from Steam), I dont know about TMUF because I bought it as an actual CD with key printed on manual. ;)
