The first alpha version of the Extra.World title is published now. Online playing is possible and the editor is working again :D . Many things are still missing and older maps (ca. 2012/13) are only ruins. Newer maps have problems, because the Pastis51 items were created with textures now missing in the game. Perhaps these items can be reworked. All maps have to be validated again, so password protected maps from departed mappers are out of the game. But we are back :D .

------------------------------------------
Link to the alpha version:
https://ln.sync.com/dl/86f2c9080/kvfymq ... 6137500006

1. Copy ExtraWorld(at)spaii.Title.Pack.Gbx inside "Document/ManiaPlanet/Packs"
2. Open ManiaPlanet and click on an empty station
3. Install from disk...
4. Restart Maniaplanet
Remember: You can only enter stunt if you own all 4 envis (Stadium, Canyon, Valley and Lagoon).
---------------------------------------------
First maps from HGL, Spaii, Fixit and me:
https://ln.sync.com/dl/8734aa700/iva46m ... 3-mf8j2s2c

Put the maps into the downloaded-maps-folder of Documents/Maniaplanet/Maps and test them in 'Local Play' after restarting Maniaplanet.
In later versions all maps have to be uploaded to the Extra.World website (will come).

---------------------------------------------
If it's time now to test our Fire TM2 Stunt Server with MP4 and Extra.World is Timmy's choice. At the moment no one is playing on the old MP3 'frozen install' server anymore.
A tutorial how to change MP3 server into MP4 ist written and discussed here:
https://forum.maniaplanet.com/viewtopic ... 26&t=40920

Because the alpha online modus has actually no controller, cups and and player stats are not possible at the moment.

For those not being in our Facebook Group:

The new alpha version is out now. It will be an alpha version till next tuesday 2017-10-31 (to fix minor bugs). We upload only a few maps for testing, if the system is working. All maps have to be uploaded after validating them again on the ExtraWorld website now.
https://extra.world/

The official version of ExtraWorld will be pushed online on 2017-11-01 to enable best stunts of the month and other features at month start.
Before the release every datas will be deleted again next tuesday (maps, records, best stunts, etc..) to have a clean start.

Spaii wrote today: "Concerning dedicated server ranking, it displays ranking based on all records, even if map is not loaded on server (same as before, it's on my todo list for next edition).
I will add a pranking manialink in some days, in case of competitions are based on points ranking and not on average map records ranking.
BTW, i think it's pertinent to have a different server login for each competition (i think about Fire cup ;) ), then each time a cup is finished, you can have final ranking manialink in form dranking?firecup201711 (for example).

All dates in ExtraWorld are displayed UTC, you have to add or remove hours by yourself depending of your timezone.
I will work on that for next edition.

I removed karma system, it's now 'my favorite maps' system, simply click on star to add current map in favorite maps.
I will open a server 'Stars of stunts' with all maps with more than 5 stars (in a first time)

A second server 'All maps' will be opened too. Each time you upload a map on extra world, it will be added on this server automatically. (it's checked every 5 mins)

Best scores of the month are disabled in this version (server crash at each map restart, and i will not have the time today to inspect the problem), same for server admin interface (to choose match duration etc...)
"

My answer: "If the server is working well, a Fire Test Cup is eventually possible after the offical release in November and after the server admin interface is working (I think its necessary for a cup). We will see what is possible".

Spaii asked me, if we can test the Fire Server with the update.
The new title looks great and has new interesting features. Its really a big progress from the old TM2-Stunts title.
----------------------
For thoses who have already the previous version installed, simply restart ManiaPlanet and click on the title, it will automatically update to next edition. For others, you can download and install title by yourself during alpha.
https://file.extra.world/ExtraWorld%40s ... e.Pack.Gbx
1. Copy the ExtraWorld.Title.Pack.Gbx inside "Document/ManiaPlanet/Packs"
2. Open ManiaPlanet and click on an empty station
3. Install from disk...
4. Restart Maniaplanet
Remember: You can only enter stunt if you own all 4 envis (Stadium, Canyon, Valley and Lagoon).
-----------------------------
The ExtraWorld Title will be accessible on store after the official release.

From Spaii:
ExtraWorld updated to version 'Beta Edition v1' :)
I wiped every datas.
There will be only one wipe just before official edition.
Dedicated servers need to update the titlepack file.
BTW, on next edition, it will not be possible for dedicated server to use records if titlepack on server is not the same version of the current one.
Have fun !!


With previous version installed, it will automatically update to the Beta version by clicking on the title in Maniaplanet.

Without previous version:
Direct download of the Beta Edition v1:
https://file.extra.world/ExtraWorld@spa ... e.Pack.Gbx

or from the ExtraWorld website:
https://mp.extra.world/ -> Title -> Download

1. Copy the ExtraWorld.Title.Pack.Gbx inside "Document/ManiaPlanet/Packs"
2. Open ManiaPlanet and click on an empty station
3. Install from disk...
-> you need all 4 envis to start ExtraWorld
