@karsh: Dang, just when my 4 day weekend starts... But that's probably the right call. Lolmaps and GameZone must do for now.

man, holiday focused track mania servers would be sick. Even if it's just music

The VPS provider I've been using for 4+ years is closing their doors soon, so I was forced to migrated to a new host. Don't worry; the TrackMania database is safe.

As I discovered before, most TrackMania server mods are not prepared for PHP 7. Months later, that hasn't changed--they still haven't been ported to PHP 7. But there are some brave people that have created an XASECO2 port that may work on PHP 7. There's also a more modern fork, UASECO, that I had tried briefly and had some issues with. I don't remember what the problem was, but maybe it's fixed now and I'll move everything to UASECO?

I'm in no position to test right now. Perhaps soon. The server will be up sometime before the holidays. Maybe.

I am doing the University thing until December, a holiday Trackmania binge sounds like a great time.

I've been missing the Trackmania GB server so much lately, can't wait to hop on it again with everyone!

Server's up for the weekend, to test stability. I'm not advertising it anywhere but here and the Discord. I make no guarantees of it staying past this weekend.

If all goes as planned, maybe it'll be up more permanently next week. With some fresh tracks and music. And a Discord plugin I may develop as a pet project, because the Discord-IRC-Trackmania thing is a total nightmare and I don't want to do that again.

Fantastic to hear and thanks for all your work on it.

Don't play much Trackmania 2 these days as all the servers still running are way too serious/difficult

@karsh: Good timing cosidering Jeff's stream starts in an hour. It can't be a coincidence.

Seeing Jeff play it on the stream reignited my interest for a server.

Server's back up for testing, keeping it on the down-low. I want to make sure XAseco doesn't crash after a few hours (like it did during the Extra Life stream, and I wasn't awake to fix it! So sorry that happened, The Kids.)

Maniaplanet 4 is here! And it's.. Kinda messed up! But that's okay, because I think it has enough features to eventually justify its messy launch. Maybe.

Anyways, the server has been updated! It's now kitted with UASECO, a much nicer server plugin forked from XASECO2. And every track has been rebuilt, to fix Maniaplanet 4's current issue of missing track pieces and messed up lighting. It took a rough night, but now it's, dare I say, better?? Except for the possibility that there is no longer an 'unlimited demo' of Stadium Time Attack mode? (I really can't tell what is offered for free anymore, Maniaplanet's new site is also a mess)

@karsh: I've been punching in the name of the server into the new godawful server browser, but it doesn't seem to be popping up? Your website says everything is up and running smoothly.

EDIT: Ah, ignore my belly aching - found it. Cheers Karsh.

@mjhealy: I think the new search doesn't strip formatting from names, so the fancy red/white 'giant bomb' is probably messing with things. Maybe search for 'unofficial classic' or look under USA -> Illinois.

The new browser is extremely bad. It's kinda ridiculous that you can't even view your favorite servers right now.

Hey, the track: Ridder - 09 seems to be broken. When you go to land after the first jump, instead of hitting the ground, you just keep falling.

@dc8822: Deleted! Thanks for the heads up.

If anyone else finds broken tracks, feel free to report them here, or in the Discord!

@karsh: Not a problem, thanks for taking care of it. Also, the track Snowburger appears to be broken because it's missing a section of track right before a loop making it impossible.

Lagoon server is up! Look for Giant Bomb Rollercoaster Lagoon to play. More maps will be added as people make them (there are, as of this post, only 30 tracks on Mania-Exchange)

@karsh: Thanks, I am downloading the 1.1gig HD update right now. I can't wait to mess around with this.

Greetings! I'm pretty new to Trackmania and tried jumping into the GB Unofficial Classic server on Stadium and it just spat 'could not connect' errors at me. I am located in New Zealand, maybe I'm just too far? Or is this new maniaplanet update messing stuff up?

Hey guys, sorry about the Stadium trouble! It's fixed now.

(The Stadium server has been unreachable since Tuesday.. my bad! Both Stadium and Lagoon were on the same ports. Now they're not.)

I think the server needs a refresh of *CLASSIC DUBSTEP BANGERS* under the basis of new Trackmania, new jams.

@dukeedwardi: you shouldn't have trouble in NZ - I'm in AUS and have no issues whenever I go for a spin.

aw man, all the Trackmania talk made me remember I own Canyon, but alas, no Canyon GB server to play on :(

Is Stadium basically the default these days?

Man, these developers can't design UI to save their lives. Where the heck is the favorites list? Does it just not exist anymore?

Oh cool, I didn't even know you still had the Stadium server up; I thought the Lagoon server fully replaced it. I... uh, don't think I like Lagoon very much. Probably going to go back to Stadium.

I'm pretty new to trackmania and have played on the giantbomb server (on both lagoon and stadium), but now I cant seems to really find it? Also as someone else asked, is there a way to favorite servers so I can easily go back to them?
