Is there like a start-up guide for dummies, cause after 2 hours of trying i can't get the damn thing to run.
After setting up the dedicated server and the connection info in airio.con1, when i try to run Airio.exe it just wont run, "The application failed to initialize properly"... i followed all the steps in the short config guide.
EDIT: Nvm, found out that my net.framework was outdated, forgot to update it after i reinstalled XP a week ago.
The DashLights are part of OutGauge, not InSim
There are several problems with that:
Because OutGauge is not part of InSim, it does not provide means to identify the player it's sending data for.
OutGauge is sending data for the player currently "in focus", while InSim does provide information about the view that's being used, it does not provide an ID of the player that's being viewed. The only distinction it makes is between itself and another player, on a dedicated host it's obviously always VIEW_ANOTHER
TC should be added to the player flags and be sent via IS_PFL as suggested by EQ Worry, I'll post a suggestion if there isn't one already.
The difference is what you make it. On each server you have the option to turn on/off these two special point counters, one called "for driving", the other "for playing". For example you can have them turned off all the time and turn on just one of the categories for some special event (weekly long race), then turn it off again. You can use the other category for some different type of scores, but both will be always readily available.
Indeed, as already pointed out, you can move any items of CFG and SRV files into custom files using IncludeFile directive. Included files can also contain IncludeFile. It may be handy to move to external files e.g. all texts (welcome messages, timed messages, rules) or limad names or curse list, etc.
Great, I can't wait.
Yes, as you already know, "improper inicialization" is a Windows system message saying that .NET Framework 2.0 or higher is not installed. On Linux you need Mono libraries, Airio then runs stable even on this system.
I'm not absolutely sure, but I think there were no changes to InSim data for almost a year now. And that means TC check is still unachievable...
Please let me know where you're putting InSim changes suggestions, I might add a few more.
Thanks! I'll check on this, it looks like some array the !rs command uses is not properly initialized sometime...
Of course! To save myself from explaining over and over again, I created a short text about how to get the FULL version here, 2nd section. I hope you'll understand... I'll also contact you using the mail or MSN/ICQ in case you have some questions etc.
Thanks!!! It is hard/impossible to do everything people can think of, you see. But I'm trying to add things that are really generally usable, always as somehow configurable options...
Yup I do think it's worth every penny however I do have a budget all the same
Ok EQ Worry! I just wanted to make sure the site was real and you were
aware that I wanted to get Full Ario b4 going ahead, However I really need
2 hav a chat with you 1st to clear some things up! Add me to your MSN as I
dont have your details, Once I get message from you in msn I can speak with
you to see IF we can arrange something or not
Yes, we all have a budget... Site is real too, Airio works, usually I'm available to solve any issues and discuss new features etc. Not everything is possible to add overnight, but when I find some free time I devote it to Airio development and testing... I added you to MSN, mine is available (I think) under my name here in the left column.
# Number of allowed running race rejoins - integer
# Number of tries to rejoin before kick - integer
# Race progress percentage after which rejoin is not possible - integer
Works with race laps and minutes duration ?
And /midrace in setup.cfg i need set to yes or to no ?
with those settings airio will allow one race (re)join, but only if 8% of the race hasn't been completed yet, and will spectate anyone who tries to get back in, with a limit of four, at which point it will kick the person trying to rejoin.
Aaaah, you're right! Now what a bad hidden bug... Thanks for info! I'll make sure this is solved in the next Airio version. You in fact need to stop for quite long, 30 seconds instead of required 10, but it certainly is a bug.
I think here we're talking about messages shown as buttons in server "logo" (e.g. on race restart) with "Airio Powered", and also in personal options screen. There are also lines line "Developed by ... available at ...".
I could very well add an option to optionally remove the Airio Powered text from logo, but I would not like to remove myself and the web link from options screen or !ver command output.
Would it be enough to remove the Powered text? There would be no price on this, it will be available to everyone from next release.
You may, even in the FREE version, define usernames as Limad4=somename. These people will be virtual admins. They would not have/use server password, but Airio will allow them all the actions admins can do.
BUT. They will still not be able to use / server commands (such as /restart or /cars), that is not possible without server pass. They must use Airio commands for this, which mimick LFS commands except there's ! at the beginning and = is replaced by a space. Virtual admins can thus type !cars xfg+xrg or !restart, which will be converted to server commands and executed by Airio using its complete admin rights.
In this sense virtual admins have indirect access to server commands. It is also possible se set which of these commands will be actually available...
