It works the same way as the previous TMSX/TMO dedicated server, differences are less command line arguments and more in the config file, verify your dedicated.cfg there is some more things in it. For the linux version it's about the same, if you know unix you should not have problems to make it work. Don't forget that you must have an account and specify its login and password in the dedicated.cfg ! To make you dedicated account, it depends upon the game (it needs the cd-key for TMO and TMSX) : - For TMN : make an alternative account from the game itself. Now login should be created automatically if coutry is indicated and login is not already used. - For TMSX : http://www.trackmaniasunrise.com/dedicated/indexUk.php - For TMO : http://www.trackmania.com/dedicated/indexUk.php
