TrackMania 2 Stadium Server

#201 Posted by bibamatt (1123 posts) -

Picked up Stadium for £3.99 yesterday and jumped straight into the Unofficial Classic server. Drove around loops on my own while listening to a Luigi's Mansion dubstep remix and Cher. I love you Giant Bomb.

Can't wait to play more. Are the other Trackmania's well populated by Bombers? Which is busiest at the moment?

Awesome, about to jump on!

I was really happy to see a few folks in Unofficial Classic a day or two ago. Was fun!

Server crashed at some point. Nobody noticed, including me. Maybe that's a sign that I should retire the server for a while..

.. Nope. Server's back up.

I seem to get a mysterious and cryptic "Cannot join server..." error when I try to connect to Giant Bomb Unofficial and only Giant Bomb Unofficial. It worked fine for the friend I was playing with, so I can only assume some goofy setting on my end is screwed up, but I figured I'd toss the issue here to see if you guys had any ideas.

Just got this since it was only $5 and I figured I'd get that much enjoyment out of it eventually. But oh man no one is playing this game. It is like it just fell off the face of the Earth.

Damn. Can't believe that this shut down only days before I really got into TrackMania. Talk about being late to the party.

Apparently Trackmania 2 Stadium is free until April 2014.

So I started the server back up. Look for Giant Bomb Unofficial Classic in US -> Illinois.

I'm keeping it on the down low--feeling out the Mania before I go crazy advertising this.

@karsh: Thanks for this duder. I love trackmania and the server looks like the maps have been curated better than most servers.

@karsh Thanks for bringing it back! Honestly the music and active chat was what separated that server from all of the other ones. Are you going to put on a bunch of new tracks? Can't wait to do loops to the Cailliou freestyle again.

I'll add tracks and music over the week, once I get my admin tools fixed.

Right now, it's right back where we left off--same track rotation (99 tracks that hopefully aren't terrible), same dubstep.

Got on for a bit. Jukebox was fucked up, but 1 other duder and me had some fun races. I enjoyed the tracks I played as well.

#213 Edited by Karsh (164 posts) -

Added 52 tracks and 4 songs. Also added a TM-Karma thing to my admin panel so I can clean out bad tracks. (edit: also be on the lookout for CHRISTMAS TRACKLIST early next week, featuring 'merry christmas - the road'

I'm finding it hard to believe.. we're in
