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.

Physics / Rear suspension geometry
April 17, 2020, 04:47:29 PM
MX Bikes supports 6 types of rear suspension geometry.

There are 3 main categories:
1) "Classic". The shock is linked to the chassis and swingarm directly.
Examples: Ducati Monster, KTM 450 EXC, vintage bikes.

2) Linkage suspension. There are two additional elements: rocker and rod.
Example:

The rocker is blue, the rod red.

2a) "Linkage Rocker Chassis". The shock is linked to the chassis and the rocker to the chassis.
Examples: Ducati Panigale V2, Kawasaki Uni-Trak.

2b) "Linkage Rod Chassis". The shock is linked to the chassis and the rod to the chassis.
Example: Honda Pro-Link, stock MSM bikes.

2c) "Linkage Rocker Swingarm". The shock is linked to the swingarm and the rocker to the chassis.
Examples: Ducati Desmosedici, Suzuki Full Floater.

2d) "Linkage Rod Swingarm". The shock is linked to the swingarm and the rod to the chassis.
Example: Honda Unit Pro-Link.

3) "Hardtail". There is no suspension and the rear wheel is connected directly to the chassis.
Example: speedway bike.
10
Physics / Front Suspension Geometry
April 17, 2020, 04:41:48 PM
MX Bikes supports 4 types of front suspension geometry.

1) "Telescopic". Used on almost all racing bikes.

2) "Push Arm". The front wheel is attached to an arm, with the pivot behind.
Example: speedway bike.

3) "Trail Arm". Same as push arm, but the pivot is in front of the wheel.
Example: Vespa.

4) "Rigid". There is no suspension and the front wheel is connected directly to the steer.
Probably only used on minibikes.

Bikes / Chain animation
July 10, 2019, 11:41:57 AM
How to link the chain to the front sprocket:

1. Open the file gfx.cfg and go to ( or create ) the "chain" section ( there should be two, one for full model and one for the cockpit )

2. Make sure that "name" matches the object name in the model

3. Open the bike in the Bike Editor: http://forum.mx-bikes.com/index.php?topic=974.0

4. Drag "Chain Link" over "FSprocket"

5. Copy the "Pos" and "Rot" values in the gfx.cfg file

6. Please make sure that the chain LODs, if present, use the same object name and pivot position and rotation as the top LOD


Please note that it is also possible to add a blur texture.
