Fixed Setup Tutorial




Everything within this tutorial is giving you a walk-thru with the entire process on how to setup your server for fixed setups. We suggest following this walk-thru and make your changes with the Default Config Editor within your TCAdmin Control Panel.

 

 

 

 

===========INSTRUCTIONS FOR FIXED SETUP WITH CUSTOM SETUPS==========

 

 

STEP ONE: ADD THESE ITEMS

Copy the following two items into your USERDATA-->PLAYER FOLDER on the server

- FavoriteAndFixedSetups.gal

- FixedSetups Folder

 

STEP TWO: MAKE A SETUP

Go drive and/or create a setup for the track you want to race with a fixed setup and save it in game.

 

STEP THREE: FIND YOUR SETUP

Open your root ARCA Remax folder...then go to the USERDATA-->PLAYER FOLDER--> SETTINGS FOLDER and into the track FOLDER that you saved your setup in.

 

So if you were at Toledo and saved your setup in game....you would open your USERDATA-->PLAYER FOLDER--->SETTINGS-->Toledo Speedway folder. Inside there is the setup you saved.

 

STEP FOUR: COPY/PASTE YOUR SETUP TO FIXEDSETUPS FOLDER

Copy the saved setup and Paste that setup inside the FixedSetups Folder,

which is the new folder you put in the USERDATA-->PLAYER FOLDER

 

STEP FIVE: PROPER SETUP NAMING

Make sure the setup is named exactly as I named it in the FavoriteAndFixedSetups.gal file for that track. I usually just put trackname.svm as my method of labeling. You can open the FavoriteAndFixedSetups.gal with your notepad and check to make sure you got it right. The default FavoriteAndFixedSetups.gal that I provided is setup with every current track we have released ready to go.

 

Look below at how I have the setup naming I have used for Daytona in the FavoriteAndFixedSetups.gal file

 

 

EXAMPLE DAYTONA FIXED SETUP CODE BELOW:

 

AutoLoadEntry

{

  Track="Daytona Int'l Speedway"

  Classes="ARCA"

  Session=7 // not currently used

  File="USERDATA\DedicatedServer\FixedSetups\Daytona.svm"

}

 

STEP FIVE: PROPER USERNAME SETUP

Make sure you change the line at each track to point to the proper PLAYER FOLDER for your server. This is easy.

 

If your server username was MyServer...all you need to do is change the line in the FavoriteAndFixedSetups.gal for each track selection so it points to that folder.

 

You can double check the folder name by looking inside the ARCA Remax-->USERDATA folder and you would see your servers player folder or folders listed. Those on server that are rented without desktop access may need to talk to their provider. However, most, if not all TC Admin controls allow you into that folder in their control panel where you could upload the files in this package as well as see the name of the servers PLAYER FOLDER.

 

To make the coding work right for the fixed setup all you need to do is change the line in the FavoriteAndFixedSetups.gal for each track selection so it points to that folder.

 

EXAMPLE FOR SERVER USERNAME MyServer:

You would change bottom line as follows.

 

AutoLoadEntry

{

  Track="Daytona Int'l Speedway"

  Classes="ARCA"

  Session=7 // not currently used

  File="USERDATA\MyServer\FixedSetups\Daytona.svm"

}

 

STEP SIX: START SERVER

Start your server select the proper track amd select FIXED SETUP when launching and your ready to race!

 

Should be good to go.

 

 

Now everytime you turn on fixed setups it will load that setup. To change it...simply overwrite old setup with a new one or change the name of the setup to the new one in the bottom line and it will now lad that one. An Example of changing setup name is below.

 

 

USING A CUSTOM SETUP NAME in FAVORITEANDFIXEDSETUPS.gal FILE:

You can change the name of the setup to whatever you want. I name after track as it is easy to keep them organized.

 

To change setup name to something other then what I have....simply change the name of the setup you want to load in the bottom line of the code as I did below.

 

So if your setup was saved as DAYTONAFIXED.svm and you dont want to change it...then you would change it to what is listed below.

 

EXAMPLE CUSTOM SETUP NAMING BELOW:

 

AutoLoadEntry

{

  Track="Daytona Int'l Speedway"

  Classes="ARCA"

  Session=7 // not currently used

  File="USERDATA\DedicatedServer\FixedSetups\DAYTONAFIXED.svm"

}

 

GENERAL CODING BREAKDOWN:

 

AutoLoadEntry

{

  Track="Daytona Int'l Speedway" <---This line tells what track its loading setup for. Track name must match VENUE NAME for that track which can be found in the gdb file for that track.

  Classes="ARCA"

  Session=7 // not currently used

  File="USERDATA\DedicatedServer\FixedSetups\Daytona.svm" <---- This is the line that tells where the setup that you want to load is.

}
