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.

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.
2020-08-20 DediStats 1 launched
  Only two years since sparking the idea, the DediStats 1 page is now online, offering summaries of the wealth of data in the Dedimania 1 master database. Statistics are available on the tracks, players, records, servers, and tools (controllers) active on TrackMania Nations/United Forever, Nations ESWC, Sunrise and Original servers around the world.
2019-01-09 XAseco.org on HTTPS
  Better late than never, the entire XAseco.org website (not just the Wiki) has now been switched to HTTPS. 'Nuf said. :)
2018-12-06 Updated TM/TM² Medal pages
  Although not mentioned here before, a medal times page for TM² Lagoon went online in June 2017. At the time I didn't realize however that the simultaneous MP4 release brought along updated tracks for TM² Canyon and TM² Valley, so those medal times pages have now (belatedly) been updated. These, and the TM² Stadium, TM Nations ESWC, TM Sunrise and TM Original overviews, also include a new Laps column for the multi-lap tracks (except Original, which has none), and some minor styling enhancements.
2017-06-14 Mania Tech Wiki
  TM-Wiki (formerly at tm-wiki.org) died about a year and a half ago. It covered general info about the entire TrackMania series, but it also was the only place to collect detailed technical information about the GameBox engine, the GBX and MUX file formats, and related topics and tools. For this reason especially, a suitable wiki was missed by technical specialists in the community. Enter the Mania Tech Wiki :D

This site aims to document technical aspects of, and technology in, the games in the Mania series by Nadeo (ok, and Virtual Skipper too). It is a very small wiki now, and because of its nature is likely to remain quite small too. Nonetheless, interested contributors are now invited to sign up and start adding relevant information.
