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?

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.

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

Server is back up, why the hell not. Recent Bombcasts have caused an ever-so-slight rise in The Mania. Hop on the server with some friends and try to fill it sometime, won't you?

If you've been active on the server for a while and want to add/manage tracks, let me know. I could use some active admins to keep things interesting.

As someone who has had a Trackmania itch forming since seeing the Turbo announcement at E3, and also has a lot of free time starting from tomorrow, this could not have come at a better time. Or worse, depending on your perspective.

I think I'm gunna have to re-download ManiaPlanet by the looks of it!

I also really want to play Valley, but I doubt there's much going on there. That game's handling was criminally underrated.

It'd be really nice to have a best checkpoint time plugin that some other servers have. Looking around I found this and this.

Avatar image for karsh
#226 Edited by Karsh (204 posts) -

@cydonian: I'll add that first one shortly.

I also found a plugin that automatically removes tracks under a TM-Karma threshold. May be installing that as well, unless you guys suggest otherwise.

Deleted a bunch of low karma tracks and updated TM-Karma. Keep voting so I know what's good/what to delete, folks!

@karsh:I voted for some music tonight, but sometimes the song I clicked on wasn't the one that ended up playing. (It would say I queued up a totally different song in the chat box - 50 Caliber when I actually clicked Jurassic Park Dubstep and Block Rockin' Beats when I clicked on Believe.) Could you look into when you get a chance? I'd really appreciate it!

@samuraigarrin: Checked it out, seems good now. May have been some residual weirdness caused by me restarting XAseco while you were online. If that happens again, try relogging.

There were some calls for Lockdown to be added to the server and I'd have to agree

Thanks so much for setting this up. Love the track selection and music. Only qualm is a couple of tracks that have been in the rotation for 3-4 days and have yet to see a single person finish, but it's a small thing (and I think one track in total).

@karsh: Awesome, I already made use of this at work today, thanks. I had the songs stuck in my head from playing.

As much as I like the dubstep, I wonder if we shouldn't add some Nightcore to the mix as well. I think Jeff mentioned it on the podcast once. It's ridiculous and terrible, but I've somehow listened to a bunch of it. I've got no specific Nightcore suggestions, it's all kind of equally dumb, just search youtube.

#239 Posted by Karsh (204 posts) -

Forgot to mention: Added a handful of new tracks the other day. Will clean out some low karma ones soon, and maybe add some music.

Just a heads up... I may not be as active this week; we're entering crunch time at work. I'm going to be enlisting the help of some of the server regulars as admins (for example, thewrathofconn is now an admin! congrats and thanks!). If you're active enough and I think you have the PatienZe and SkillZ™ to be an admin, I'll be in touch with you this week.

As someone who bought all of the Trackmania that they offered in 2014, I've been waiting for this moment.

Is there an official way to submit song suggestions? A public Google doc or something?

I'm guessing there might be an automated system to identify links to download-y sites if that's what you had in yours? Which seems odd since there's legitimate uses for stuff. I guess CBSi would really rather not get hit with a DMCA, so it makes some amount of sense to be proactive.

It is a shame, since I spent a while converting unofficial remixes to ogg so Karsh didn't have to!

@lucien_lachance: @orbi: Austin mentioned something about this a couple of weeks ago. Apparently including too many links of any type in a single post can result in automatic moderation.

@orbi: Holy crap! Good effort, there are some bangers in there. I'll try to have them up tomorrow, along with some new tracks.

For future music/track suggestions, I'll get a Google form up tomorrow as well. Looks like mass YouTube linking isn't gonna work out.

@karsh: Thanks Karsh!

I feel I should point out that the google doc incorrectly lists our version of Heaven as a remix when in fact it's the original. I would really like to keep the original though, since I like it better and it's eurotrash enough for TM on its own merits.
