Racer Room Setup

Overview

Some time ago unc0rr added support for "fixed" server rooms in order to have a permanent room for hosting race maps. A little manual setup is required, and at present must be recreated on every new release and server restart.

Removing the Room

In order to add a room for a new release, the old room must be removed first. Join the game using the old release, join the Official Racer Room then run: /unfix /delegate YourNick

Then exit. The room will be removed.

Updating the room config for a new release

The racer room configuration is currently here: https://hg.hedgewars.org/hedgewars/raw-file/tip/misc/racer.room It is stored relative to the game server. According to unc0rr, any errors in syntax will kill the server, so be careful! To update for a new release you usually just need to add new characters to the AMMO for any newly added weapon entries. :s/\([0-9]\{58\}\)/\10/g will do this in vim, where 58 is the number of weapons in the current racer room and the 0 is for the addition. New maps can be added too, using existing entries as a reference.

Setting up the room

After having removed the old room, create a new room named "Official Racer Room". Restrict join to registered players only (unregistered don't get recorded in the stats) then run: /loadroom racer.room /fix /callvote map #01

And leave. The callvote will cause errors as long as you are still the room admin, but they don't matter. You can quit/rejoin before that step if you wish.
