    Hi!

    For those interested to connect their servers to Justrace where you are be able to hook all your game server to Justrace then the Justrace Server Manager BETA is now available for download:

    Coming Soon...


    1. You can create, stop and delete your game servers from Justrace web application

    2. You can schedule your servers from Justrace web app

    3. Your community drivers will be able to see schedule servers and subscribe to them on our match maker

    4. The race schedule you create will be tagged to your Community name

    upload_2017-3-2_8-41-26.png

    5. Results and statistics will be auto uploaded and generated

    6. Ratings will be auto calculated

    7. You can then also integrate your servers with the coming Advanced League Management system


    INSTALLATION:

    1. Run the exe file and follow the installer instructions

    2. Make a rule in your firewall to open Port 9001 TCP. If you want to change this port, open the file JustraceServerManager\bin\Release\JustraceServerManager.exe.config and change this. Your sever IP and port have to be accessible from the outside word, so you might need to configure port forwarding.

    3. Change the JustraceServerManager\bin\Release\Capabilities.json file as you wish. This instructs the app how many servers of game the server can start. For example, the below tells the server that you can have a max of 5 raceroom dedicated servers that can be started. If you also use it for other games, you need to specify the ports to be used.

    4. A shortcut should have been created in your desktop. If not. then run JustraceServerManager\bin\Release\JustraceServerManager.exe

    5. If you don't have a login yet, create one. In the Community Name, enter your server name, for example, Raceroom Server 1

    upload_2017-3-2_8-42-20.png

    6. You can install this app on as many servers as you wish, but just choose a different Community name, like Raceroom Server 2 etc

    7. Once started, choose the raceroom dedicated server folder and start the raceroom server. The app will tell you if it found any issues like shown below. For example, my laptop cannot be accessed from the outside word and thus it wont work.

    upload_2017-3-2_8-42-38.png

    That's it really, now your server is connected to the justrace system.

    Let me know if you need help.

    Cheers
    Stefan

    Hi all :smiley:

    I have done a few bug fixes and added more logging so I will soon post an update. On a related note, I am seeing lots of connections, like over 40 people tried to connect but then seem to have given up...

    Please feel free to ask for help and instructions. I will try to make a video one of these days when I get some time on how it works.

    Cheers
    Stefan

    Hello,

    Very good job my friend.

    But I can not get it to work on my dedicated Windows Server. When I run Justrace Server Manager, this closes me RaceRoom Dedicated Server.exe. I do understand everything exactly. I authorized the application in the firewall.

    The RaceRoom folder is here : C:\Users\AdminGTR3\Documents\My Games\SimBin\RaceRoom Racing Experience\

    When I click "Re / Start Raceroom Server" nothing happens.

    Sorry for my bad English, I am French.

    My Team: http://www.team-gtr3.fr

    Thank you for your work.

    You can also send me the logs if you wish so I can check them

    Cheers

    Just tried JustRaceServerManager_0600, running on Windows Server 2016, following problems occured:
    • when trying to setup the AC-Server-Path it crashes always
    • entered the path manually, when clicking on Refresh AC Cars and Tracks it crashed
    • restarted JustRaceServerManager, now it seems to work
    Seems to work right now, just tested AC server creation and joining. Next step will be R3E.

    Is there a known possibility to get JustRaceServerManager running as Windows service? For ACTrackCycle I am using srvany.exe from the NT4 Ressource Kit successfully. Just need to make sure the server is running all the times as Windows just wants its updates from time to time and this must be an automated system.

    Edit:
    R3E works, too. Got R3E running using srvany.exe, now trying JustraceServerManager.exe to be run as a service.
    Edited the capabilities.json to allow only 2 AC servers and 2 R3E servers, but the setting is ignored. I can create up to 5 R3E servers until the hard limit restricts me, and I can create AC servers until I run out of ressources using justrace.net.
    Everything else is just wow...

    Update for running ServerManager as a service:
    - my usual ways did not work
    - using task scheduler I can schedule it to start after server startup, I can also get it running in the background (wether or not user is logged on)
    - I can create AC servers and also R3E servers now without being logged on to the server
    - just one problem: R3E dedicated always requires the secret passphrase when restarting

    Hi mate, sorry just saw your messages now! Seems like you been experimenting with it and of course with some issues (yep, its still beta! :yum: )

    Hmm, the reason why we did not do it as a service was mainly due to complexities with windows permission issues, but yes, it is possible.

    I understand what you mean, that ideally it needs to auto restart but as it is, as a windows app, its not ideal to set it as a task etc. Maybe one day we will consider that.

    As for R3E, we dont require to always set the secret pass when restarting. In fact it is only started once and it stays on! Just new sessions are created. Though we do have issues with it many times and need to re-start it, asking the pass again etc. We find it to be a bit unstable, but its from R3E side and we cannot do much.

    I do this to refresh it: remove the settings and iv bin files in %localappdata%\Sector3_Studios_AB (enter this in windows explorer)

    I'd love to help you with any issues but moved to Australia recently and dont even have my development PC yet as its on the way, plus I guess the time difference?

    I also did not see any new servers on justrace web site, so dont think this is working for you, unless maybe you brought them down again?

    No problem, read about your move to Australia already.
    Yes, I have some trouble with justrace.net Server Manager when using RRRE_dedicated - seems to have something to do with service setup. AC runs flawlessly.
    Needed R3E Server last friday evening, didn't work, so I shutdown JR Servermanager and setup up directly on the server for now.

    As I will exchange the server hardware in about 2 weeks I will not invest time on the old environment now and will try this once again when the hardware has been changed.
    So just get your move done and make yourself a comfortable home on the other side of the world.

    Is it possible to give other users rights to use my Justrace Server Manager System via justrace.net? Or open server slots / whole server within it's slot limits for public usage?
    I am lucky to be working as ICT Manager (former Engineer) and I am permitted to let my server run here inside our companie's server room - dual ups backup with extended runtime, redundant firewall, redundant 50MBit/s synchronous fibre internet access - as long as I am working here.

    I understand :smiley: Great that you can use that server room :yum: For now you can create a generic username/password and then give that to your colleagues. They can do the same things like do. I think it would be a great functionality to have multiple users linked to the server manager. We can develop it.

    Once settled, I will fix a few bugs/update the software and I might be able to help you if you wish or maybe @tobi can, he lives in Germany but a busy man :yum: Tobi has been working on the League Management System for a while and hopefully I will jump in to help him to bring it to JR if there is some interest.

    Any thoughts on a linux version?
     
  17. stefan.mizzi

    stefan.mizzi Administrator Staff Member

    Hi Rolz, that would be a big task to either write the app for Linux or maybe using .Net Core or Mono to convert it. Surely no time at this stage. But in the future, we will surely consider it if it becomes popular

    Ah cool, so you are downunder too :yum: Thanks mate, I'll check it out one of these days and see how much work it's needed. Would love to get a few people from this side of the world to hook their servers into JR :smiley:
