    Did the test work ok, or do I need to send the files :)

    Strange behavior of the dedicated, that first on server is the host?
    Is that how it suppose to be?

    First Thanks to everyone for participating in these tests !
    Remember this ds set up is all still in beta as far as the AMS devs are concerned .
    AMS2 is using the PC2 SMS engine so it has the same file structure & even file names ,unfortunately it also still has all the same bugs PC2 has :rolleyes:
    The way there MP servers are set up the server sits idol with the settings we select from the ds menu ,car, track, time etc .. then once launched it sits waiting for players to join like any other server , difference is first player to join automatically becomes host , just like PC2 ,the difference is in PC2 you have a command line to add to the exe -selectds ,this allows the admin or host of a event to build the event on his pc & then when he launches with the -selectds it only searches for empty dedicated servers ,player finds the ds and joins ,this loads the event he created and he also becomes host .. AMS took this feature out ,or has not found a way to get it going yet so we have to change a few things and we build the events on the server & launch it , this is fine but the fact still remains that first player on will become host where with -selectds only THAT player can become host because the event does not exist yet until he joins ..
    So remember if your the first one on you will become host & be responsible for moving the sessions along ..
    For this event we have no result files due to the fact its all so new our server provider needed to tweak a few things & next race we should have results working !
    This is why we test !
    Now for the good stuff !
    I thought the game played great & the racing was very good , I did see the occasional tire twitch on the cars in front when they turn the wheel & a few other anomalies but nothing that really effected the door to door racing !
    Next Tuesday we try again !
    I hope you all can make it ! :D

    Maybe set up two shorter races to get more close racing and see how good the netcode is?
    I'm a backer and during beta I tried few mp races, and lets say that part did need some attention but have not done much mp after public access.

    AMS2 is getting better after each update, but imo there still a few functional and visual bugs that needs to be sorted before I would consider it an 1.0 release.

    Rob was able to resolve the issues with the server and was able to retrieve the result file. Nice work Rob! What would we do without you? :)

    Results of the first test are looking good. Thanks to everyone who participated.

    What next? Maybe Copa classic, Hot Cars or Opala stock cars maybe one of these slower cars could prove to be more interesting race.
