    Thanks to MortICi for the sms_base.lua / sms_motd.lua Files and his work on the dedicated server configs!
    His awesome Thread for the dedicated server configs




    How to install

    1. Download the Server Manager here
    2. Extract it anywhere




    How to use

    1. Start the Program
    2. Choose a Path to an empty Folder for your servers
    3. Click on Login and input at least your Steam Username
    4. Input a name for your Server
    5. Click on Add Server

    Switch / Change / Duplicate / Save your Serversettings and start the Server





    Known issues & Infos

    - Serverrestart is not tested with the gui and maybe not working!
    - You can input your Steam Password in the login window, it will be stored in /data/settings.ini in an unreadable format. It is not a perfect protection but better then nothing. Sadly you must login with your steamaccount to download the dedicated server. Anonymous is not working

    - On Add or Update Server the gui is downloading the Official Project Cars 2 Dedicated Server and my CMD-tools in order to work correctly.
    - There are very little errorchecks, so if you make something wrong there is maybe no errormessage
    - Of course it can happen that some things dont work. Please report it and i will fix it.
    - Linux support is coming soon
    - Feel free to edit the source, im not a python expert. The code is quite messy and repetetive.

    Updated the cmd-tools (You download it automaticly with a click on "Update Servers" or "Add Server"):

    -emporary removed the exit handler because of some issues on some other language systems

    I rewrite the some parts of the code the next weeks.

    Note:
    I think one of the two "ghost" options are no longer working. At least the dedicated is thowing an error or a warning at start (ghost_griefers). Disable both or the correct one. (At the bottom under settings the two checkboxes)

    Not sure if its part of the readme or not (didnt see anything as such) but if you create a server with spaces in the name it fails to create the directories properly (it stops at the first space)

    Now to figure out why i can see my server via steam and cars2 stats server page but not in the lobby list!

    Edit: looks like when i select the DS check box it will not be shown in the list, if i un-check this it shows OK - any ideas neslane?

    The select DS option is for manually ds creation via ingame settings (you start your game with -selectds parameter, create and setup a lobby and then you can choose your server for hosting this session)
    If you cant see your server in the lobbylist: be sure to forward the game and steam port in your router.
