[server]type = 1
Quote from: dibu on November 17, 2013, 05:51:59 PMThank you now the server works as expected. In my results folder I can find entry lists like 'date-time-track-GUID-nick-N-entries.html' but without recorded times.At the end of each session a server transfer message appears in the chat.This makes me think that you are running a challenge results server now. Where can we find it?Can you please post more details, I'm very interested.If the challenge feature does what I guess, it will be a great thing for the future ... thanks.
Quote from: dibu on November 18, 2013, 07:31:54 PMThe challenge mode has potential to become an official hotlap/race performance comparison server with additional options.+ We can run hotlap challenges with limited laps /attempts+ We can run race performance challenges with a certain number of laps /retries+ We can limit the number of sinmultanous players to one, to let everybody start with the same grip + GUIDs are used for identifying a driverThe basic frontend is very flexible and a good start. Atm there are some essential things missing:- No automatic publishing of temporary/final results at an official stats page.- It's a lot of work to generate final results from single xml files, especially if it's series of events. - Atm the concept doesn't allow the use of live-timing ports because the results are transfered to the server only at the end of a session. [this means also that I can't connect it to Random's hotlap server]The dream solution would be an official server which collects and displays the challenges in real time (I had hoped for it). It should be able to run series and display the actual standings. I'm sure this would attract a lot of people for all 4 sims.
