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, @archive.org), 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.

2023-07-07 Links archival
  The 2022 revival of TM-forum.com was not very long-lived, as Nadeo's forum for their classic games died again early this year, and now permanently. That may seem inevitable considering Nadeo's focus on their current TM title and also the lack of activity in the Maniaplanet forums, but is still regrettable because of the huge treasure trove of community information and advice which existed in those forums. All links from this site to TM-forum have now been redirected to archive.org, although unfortunately the Wayback Machine has not archived all forum topics.

Additionally, the unofficial web API for TrackMania Nations ESWC (partly) broke down some time ago, causing failure in the MetaStats service for that game, so support for this title had to be dropped as well. And thus the fabric of classic TrackMania games and their communities continues to unravel, as is, I suppose, the fate of most old games...
2023-04-14 Updated TMX/MX classes
  As promised, the four TMX / MX Info Fetcher and Searcher classes have now been updated to v2.0, reflecting their refactoring for the overhauled TM1X API that was rolled out last October, as well as the older TM2X API. The updated classes provide new available values per track, and retire a few data values that became deprecated. This is (tersely) documented in the comment block at the start of the files. As always they are available from the Scripts & Tools page.
2023-04-02 Updated PHP classes
  As PHP progressed via version 7.x to 8.x, some language constructs used in various data classes that were developed over a decade ago, became deprecated and eventually obsolete, breaking functionality. Therefore small updates to the TMX / MX Info Fetcher and Searcher classes as well as the TMN Data Fetcher class have now been released to address those issues. As usual they are available from the Scripts & Tools page. Not all are fully functional because of changes to the underlying services where they obtain data from, this is still under investigation.
2022-01-30 Links maintenance
  After the fortunate revival of TM-forum.com, now on https, today was a good time to update all those links here to https as well. Additionally, links to other sites were verified, or redirected to archive.org if necessary. Regrettably a handful of plugin homepages were never archived, so will remain dead.
2021-05-23 DediStats 2 launched
  The sequel got back-burnered a while longer than originally intended, but the DediStats 2 page is now online, offering summaries of the wealth of data in the Dedimania 2 master database. Statistics are available on the tracks, players, records, servers, and tools (controllers) active on TrackMania² Canyon, Stadium, Valley and Lagoon servers around the world.
