General Discussion / Reserved Names
February 21, 2022, 07:23:10 PM
Starting with Beta17, it is possible to reserve a name so that it can be used online only with a specific GUID.

This feature was integrated to prevent anyone from using the name of popular community members in multiplayer.

If your name has been used by others and you want to reserve it, please contact me or Snappe on Discord.

General Discussion / MX Bikes development
July 13, 2021, 02:57:00 PM
Apologies for the lack of updates.

A series of patches was planned shortly after the Beta16 release, but unfortunately development of MX Bikes, that has already been slow during the past 7 months, almost came to a complete halt around one month ago due to the worsening of personal issues.
Daily efforts are in progress to fix them, but sadly improvements are taking longer than expected.

Again, sorry for the wait and thank you for your patience.

- Pressing the ESC key goes back to the previous page.

- Pressing the ESC key when a dialog is open is equivalent to clicking on the "Close" / "Cancel" / "No" button.

- Pressing the Enter key when a dialog is open is equivalent to clicking on the "Yes" button ( or "Return to Pit" when the on-track dialog is open ).

- When an editbox is active, it is possible to copy text from the clipboad pressing Left Ctrl + V

For example, to send a private "Hello" to Adam with race number 7 you can type:
@A Hello
@Adam Hello
@#7 Hello

Documentation / Client Port
January 01, 2021, 10:51:42 PM
It is possible to change the port used when connecting to a server, using the "-clientport" launch parameter:
mxbikes.exe -clientport (port)
For example:
mxbikes.exe -clientport 54211
The default port is 54210

This option can be useful, for example, when multiple PCs on a local network need to connect to the same server.

Bikes / Bike registration
October 31, 2020, 07:43:40 PM
Starting with MX Bikes beta15, it is possible to register bikes to have best laps and other statistics recorded.

1) Enable physics debug mode: http://forum.mx-bikes.com/index.php?topic=1383.0

2a) The bike folder must be unpacked, not a PKZ file.
2b) While on track in testing mode, press Left Ctrl + B to generate a new "registration.bin" file ( in the bike folder ) and a code.
2c) The bike ID ( the bike folder name ) and code should be saved in the "bike.txt" file in the MX Bikes installation directory.
2d) Please save the code to a safe place, so it can be used for updates.

3) Register the bike at http://stats.mx-bikes.com/bikereg.php
"Prev. Bike Code" is only used to update the data and must be left empty when registering the bike for the first time.

4) Finalize the registration completing at least a lap on a "World" server or dedicated server.

5) Pack the mod for release, making sure to include the "registration.bin" file.

6a) If any of the elements of the bike ( tyres, rider ) is changed, then the registration must be updated, using the old code.
6b) If the name or category need to be changed, it is possible to re-use the same code in "Prev. Bike Code", without the need to generate a new one ( steps 1 and 2 ) and re-release the mod ( step 5 ).

Documentation / Remote Admin
October 27, 2020, 04:46:37 PM
It is possible to connect to a dedicated server to send admin commands.
The feature is off by default and must be enabled:
http://forum.mx-bikes.com/index.php?topic=197.0
Only 1 client can connect to the server.

Communication is made with UDP sockets and strings terminated with "\n".

Send "CONNECT" followed by the connection password ( empty string if no password ).
Reply:
OK -> connected
FULL -> another client is already connected
WRONGPASSWORD -> wrong password

Data format is "CMD" followed by an incremental message ID and then the command.
The possible commands are:
"QUIT": closes the server
"MSG": followed by the chat message, that also allows to send commands ( see the dedicated server documentation for more info: http://forum.mx-bikes.com/index.php?topic=197.0 )

The server will send an ACK followed by the message ID for each CMD received.

Send "KEEPALIVE" every 15 seconds to keep the connection active.
The server sends "ALIVE" to report that the connection is active.

Send "DISCONNECT" to correctly close the connection.
