The dedicated server should load tracks from the mods folder in "Documents", too.

Ok, so for now. I need to have big hdd in my dedicated server to host my server :S

Do you plan to create lighter script to host server like for Mx Simulator ?

Could you please explain what you mean with "lighter script"?

You can change the location of the documents folder in windows settings, googling "change documents drive windows" should help you out. We had to do this on discord servers too.

Lighter script : For me, it's independant script, a script dedicated to host server without have to install Mx Bikes on the dedicated server. For example, for Mx Simulator, it's just an excutable file who run server in the windows command prompt. It uses low resources so it can be run on light VPS. It's also possible to manage lot of servers easily because it's possible to change the title name of windows prompt. Files to add tracks in the server is also very light, only few ko unlike more than 100 Mo for MxB tracks.

It's not a problem about location. It's more a problem about size of files to host server. Currently, you have to have big hard disk to host server with lot of tracks.

On the dedicated server it is possible to save disk space manually editing each track to delete the MAP, EDF and image files.
Similarly, it is also possible to delete the EDF and sound files for all bikes.

I'am starting to get some new gray hairs over here!....

I have tried to set up my dedicated server now for 2 days, but with NO luck......
What am I missing??

Followed the "guide" about 5 times
open up ports
try other ports and open them to
Try config trough Server setup App

All that happens is that the server window popup with server info, But my actual game NEVER START!
All that starts is that "Server window" but no game....

I have the game through STEAM and as soon that i'am pressing "Play" the server-window popup ( thanks to the parameter from the guide ) Then steam show me "Stop" instead of "Play" for MX-Bikes, but the game never starts up so i can´t play or check if my server works.

Please help! Realy wanna be able to set up my server for our Twitch community! :)

Thank you in advance. ;) Gonna sit here and cry while i wait for somebody to help me :P xD

Download the MX Bikes standalone installer and use that to run the server. It's somewhere on www.mx-bikes.com

Ok thanks for info man! Only thing i can find on the website is the download for the "Demo" does that one work?
Or i need the "Complete game" to make this work? :)

Thank you!

The demo d/l is the full game and will work fine for a dedi server.

Could you add rcon commands feature in the server software ?
And the possibility to rename to server window ?

I would like to work on the porting of MxsRank to Mx Bikes, but it's impossible without theses features. (I need to rename server window to kill the server software when it's useless to have multi servers).

What protocol would you prefer for the remote control of the server?
What commands should be available?

I don't have preference. Juste something I can use with PHP, I know how to use curl and socket sender, but I can learn other method.
It's not possible to have all commands ?
