XAseco.org

Welcome to XAseco.org! This is the official site for XASECO and XASECO2, the popular server controllers for TrackMania (abbreviated TM) and TrackMania² (abbreviated TM²), Nadeo's unique and fun arcade racing game series.

This site aims to collect all relevant information about XASECO and XASECO2 (sometimes abbreviated to X1 and X2), the TM and TM² dedicated servers and related topics, as well as provide pointers to help you find your way around the TM community. It may (or may not) eventually replace Xymph's old TMN/XASECO, TMF hub and TM²/XASECO2 sites.

To navigate around this site, use the drop-down menus above. The following six sections are available:
  • Home
    The frontpage, complete site news archive, miscellaneous scripts & tools, and the credits and contact info.
  • XASECO1/2
    Information on XASECO, XASECO2 and their history, the downloads of course, and a collection of Linux init.d scripts.
  • Dedicated Server
    Information on the TM and TM² dedicated servers, their downloads, the client/server version history, the server methods & callbacks API, and init.d scripts.
  • Documentation
    Instructions for installing, upgrading, and configuring the main XASECO1/2 system and official plugins, and an overview of all chat commands.
  • Plugins
    Browsable directories of third-party plugins for XASECO and XASECO2, and (eventually) info on plugin development.
  • Links
    Links to the XAseco1/2 forum, Nadeo's official sites and the TM/TM² game clients, important community sites, and relevant technical resources.
