Documentation / Client Port
January 01, 2021, 10:54:55 PM
It is possible to change the port used when connecting to a server, using the "-clientport" launch parameter:
kart.exe -clientport (port)
For example:
kart.exe -clientport 54411
The default port is 54410

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

Other Addons / Kart and bodywork registration
August 31, 2020, 02:38:52 PM
Starting with Kart Racing Pro release11f, it is possible to register karts and bodyworks to have best laps and other statistics recorded.

Kart

1) Enable physics debug mode: http://forum.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=6335.0

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

3) Register the kart at http://stats.kartracing-pro.com/kartreg.php
"Prev. Kart Code" is only used to update the data and must be left empty when registering the kart 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 kart ( chassis, engine, tyres ) 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. Kart Code", without the need to generate a new one ( steps 1 and 2 ) and re-release the mod ( step 5 ).


Bodywork

1) Enable physics debug mode: http://forum.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=6335.0

2a) The bodywork 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 bodywork folder ) and a code.
2c) The bodywork ID ( the bodywork folder name ) and code should be saved in the "bodywork.txt" file in the Kart Racing Pro installation directory.
2d) Please save the code to a safe place, so it can be used for updates.

3) Register the bodywork at http://stats.kartracing-pro.com/bodyworkreg.php
"Prev. Bodywork Code" is only used to update the data and must be left empty when registering the bodywork 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.

6) If any of the elements of the bodywork ( front bumper, rear bumper, sidepods ) is changed, then the registration must be updated, using the old code.

Documentation / Remote Admin
July 10, 2020, 04:55:56 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.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=8.0
http://forum.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=3609.0
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.kartracing-pro.com/index.php?topic=8.0 )

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.

General Discussion / New Forum Software
April 05, 2019, 12:11:43 AM
The forum software has been updated.
Hopefully this will solve, or at least strongly mitigate, the problem with spammers.

Sadly almost all avatars and several attachment files seem to have been lost during the switch.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Please restore them if possible.

Also, Youtube videos are embedded in a different, much easier, way. Please note that it's not possible to change the video size.
Unfortunately the old videos don't work anymore.

Please report if you find any other problem.

Plugins / Mouse steering
January 14, 2019, 12:15:37 AM

This plugin http://www.mx-bikes.com/downloads/minput64.dli allows to control the kart using the mouse.
It must be copied in the "plugins" folder in the Kart Racing Pro installation directory.
Then the mouse input must be assigned clicking on the "Steer" button in Kart Racing Pro -> Settings -> Input

Please report if it works correctly.
