Mania Tech Wiki posted by   eyebo at 15 Jun, 2017
Introducing Mania Tech Wiki.

Xymph says:
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.

More info in the forums.
ManiaPlanet 4 Maps Update posted by   eyebo at 13 Jun, 2017
There's now a Gameversion filter on the search page. This can help you find MP4 or Pre-MP4 maps more easily. It's also aiding us in finding the maps that still need to be upgraded.

Over the past weeks we've been methodically going through every titlepack and updating all the maps on the site.

As of today, June 13, 2017, nearly 75% of the 14300 maps on the site are upgraded to MP4.
Titlepacks Request posted by   eyebo at 01 Jun, 2017
During our effort to upgrade every map on MX to ManiaPlanet 4, we've come across a problem. We need the original titlepacks where the maps were saved.

If you have a copy of any of these titlepacks below, please contact the MX crew. Send a download link if possible. Dropbox, GDrive, etc.

Battlefront@acclement
horde@kaeptniglu
LanTeam@guerro
Squad@kyb
TDM@willie-maykit
Traditional@mewin
UnderSiege@torrent

Your titlepacks are stored in Documents\ManiaPlanet\Packs\

Your help is much appreciated!

Thanks to   Dommy,   Wohoohi,   Elvestad,   smorgasgurka, Okami, Paragon Luké, and HYPE for sending many of the titlepacks we've already used to upgrade maps on the site.
New Platform Blocks posted by   eyebo at 01 Jun, 2017
You may have noticed some new Platform blocks are available in Storm in the update that came out today. Please note this info from Nadeo.

WARNING!
Fix says:
some platform blocs have been added to storm, but bugs (holes) too.
we discovered after the update was done : I suggest you don't use these new bugged ones until they are fixed, or expect to regenerate/fix your maps when they'll be.
sorry for the inconvenience ;,(

Fix says:
It has been mistakenly added to the server. It's unfinished and shouldn't have been in the update. It was too late when we discovered that.

ManiaPlanet 4 and your maps on MX posted by   eyebo at 15 May, 2017
Nadeo has rolled out ManiaPlanet 4! (l)

Lightmaps are now version 7. This means all maps built prior to the release of ManiaPlanet 4 should be updated.

Read our full post about it here.
Server Maintenance posted by   TGYoshi at 09 Feb, 2016
In a few days, we'll be migrating the server. This is an offline migration, thus Mania Exchange will not be accessible while the migration happens. The migration is expected to last about a full day.
Thanks for your understanding (y) .
