    Thanks for the example config files. One question though. When setting the server up for the first time I can get it to only allow you to choose one class. For example the "Ginetta G55". However when the race is over and everyone leaves the server resets automatically and then allows you to choose any car you want. How do I stop this from happening. I want it to just keep the "Ginetta G55".

    Another issue is Simresults.net I've uploaded a result file and it thinks it's from Project Cars? See link below. It only shows the race as one lap when the race was 5 mins long and we completed more than one lap.

    Result 200921-6jB - BrandsHatch_GP - Phoenixracingclub.net - Project Cars - Simresults

    I already had. My files match those exactly so why does it show as Project Cars and only shows one lap in race??

    This is the reason why not many leagues are using AMS2 as running a dedicated server isn't easy. :(

    Double check that you have tools selected in the dropdown above the library list.
    Which file did you use as a base?
    The URL to list them is right there in the comment above the value in the config file. If you have default httpapi setup head to localhost:9000/<insert url string here>
    Ensure you have set the server to have controlGameSetup : true and have SeverControlsVehicleClass/ServerControlsVehicle enabled as appropriate.

    Sorry I thought I had posted here about this but I posted in the AMS1 dedi thread :oops:
    I did take a look at it after the last release and made some headway but still having some issues setting up the build environment for it. I won't have chance now until after release again but will pick it back up then.

    I'm not sure. If you're using my exact config files then this shouldn't happen, because the server I run doesn't do that. Check the values Dave mentioned above, and/or use my server.cfg as-is to see if it still happens.

    For me the results only show qualifying sessions and nothing else. I did read about a tweak that was needed in PCars on the DS to get it to properly show race results, but I didn't bookmark it. If I find it again I'll post it here.

    @Goffik I did use your files to create server. However please see below config files

    Code:
    //////////////////////////////////////////

    bindIP : ""

    steamPort : 8766
    hostPort : 27015
    queryPort : 28016
    
    // Delay between server ticks in milliseconds, when not hosting and when hosting a game, respectively.
    // Lower values will make the server more responsible and decrease latency by a bit at the expense of higher CPU usage.
    sleepWaiting : 50
    sleepActive : 10
    
    // Sports Play will use system sockets instead of Steam networking API. Recommended for offline LAN-only events.
    sportsPlay: false

    }
    
    // Http API access level overrides.

    // This map can override these levels to anything else. The keys are wildcard endpoint paths, and the values are the

    // The wildcard patterns are case-sensitive and can contain:

    // - '?': matches 1 character
    httpApiAccessLevels : {
        // The default is empty, using defaults as defined by the endpoints themselves.
    
        // But you could for example use this to change all access levels to public (not recommended!)
        // "*" : "public"
    
        // Or this to hide the status from public
        // "" : "private"
        // "status" : "private"

    }
    
    // Filtering rules for the access levels.
    // The default access levels are "public", "private" and "admin", but the httpAccessLevels above can define any additional levels.
    // This map then tells the server who has access to which level. It's a map from level names to filtering rules.

    Comment out the curly brackets { } at the top and bottom of the following section, and see if that works:

    Code:
        {
        // RACE TWO
        // Track and vehicle class. Should be identical to the first session above.
        // "TrackId" : "Cascavel2",
        // "VehicleClassId" : "Montana",
        //"VehicleModelId" : "MCR S2000",
    
        // Session length / time overrides. For multi-race events leave practice length at 0 and qualifying at 5.
        // "PracticeLength" : 0,
        // "PracticeDateHour" : 10,
        // "QualifyLength" : 5,
        // "QualifyDateHour" : 15,
        // "RaceLength" : 20,
        // "RaceDateHour" : 16,
    
        // Optional mandatory pit stop, rolling start, and formation lap. Formation lap works for rolling start only.
        //"RaceMandatoryPitStops" : 0,
        //"RaceRollingStart" : 0,
        //"RaceFormationLap" : 0,
    
        // Race weather overrides.
        //"RaceWeatherSlots" : 1,
        //"RaceWeatherSlot1" : "LightCloud",
        //"RaceWeatherSlot2" : "LightCloud",
        //"RaceWeatherSlot3" : "LightCloud",
        //"RaceWeatherSlot4" : "LightCloud",
        }

    Yes that done the trick but I did have to remove the "," from the curly bracket from the end curly bracket for RACE ONE

    Sad news though is my results file is still showing as Project Cars 1 and only completing one lap. :(

    i don't know how the simresults guy recognizes the game pCARS <-> pCARS2 <-> AMS2.
    The 2 starting lines look the same in my files like yours.
    Maybe there is no difference and just the track/car IDs are there to recognise the right sim.
    So Brands and Ginetta are really a bad example. Try a AMS2 unique track or car and check again.

    Try my sms_stats files. Maybe there is a bug in yours.
    Have to be copied to \Automobilista 2 - Dedicated Server\lua\sms_stats\ folder

    I have no idea what would cause that. Just tried a results file from the RD server and it showed up as AMS 2 on simresults. The issue I'm having is that it only shows qualy results, but it turns out the solution is actually linked to on the simresults website itself. Direct link to solution, in case anyone else is having this problem. (Please note that this tweak is untested by me at the moment. I'll see if it works after next week's race.)

    @Wolfgang Herold & @Goffik
    Thank you guys so much for your help. It has been much appreciated.

    I am going to give it a rest for now sorting out an AMS 2 server. I've spent too many hours on it now and the next issue is sometimes the server shows in the lobby and sometimes it doesn't even with no changes to any files.

    I've spent years running dedi servers for various sim racing titles over the years and this has to be one of the most difficult I've had experience with. Life is too short so I think I'll just concentrate on running ACC, AMS 1, RF2 etc.

    OK. Thats what i assumed in the 2nd line.
    Would be easier to acknowledge if Reiza could add an identifier or just change the entry of the first two comment lines.

    e.g.
    // Persistent data for addon 'sms_stats', addon version 2.0AMS2
    // Automatically maintained by the addon, do not edit!

    Pretty sure this an AMS 2 issue, and not anything you're doing wrong. It happens every so often with the RD server too, so I have to restart it to get it to show up.

    I second that mate, it's not very user-friendly at the moment! :confused:

    Does the cooldown lap actually work in multiplayer races? I have tried and every time my multiplayer races end, the sim takes control as soon as I cross the line. I see the COOLDOWN LAP message for like a half second but the sim seems to override the setting.

    I have it set in the flags
    "Flags" : "ALLOW_CUSTOM_VEHICLE_SETUP,ABS_ALLOWED,SC_ALLOWED,TCS_ALLOWED,PIT_SPEED_LIMITER,WAIT_FOR_RACE_READY_INPUT,COOLDOWNLAP"

    And I can see it in the UI:

    @Dann Murillo Manual cooldown lap is always active in multiplayer. It was done to resolve some issues some time ago but the UI is lagging a bit there.

    With regard to the quick flash then control being taken over, if the camera changes to trackside when you lose control then it is not ai control per se. In Multi the 'Cooldown lap' is more 'Cooldown phase' and lasts until the session over countdown reaches zero or all human vehicles finish the race iirc. At that point the session is ended, results calculated, and game advanced to the post session leaderboard.

    Manual cooldown laps definitely work online because we use them.

    Thank you so much for the feedback and information guys. @Dave Stephenson specifically thanks for taking the time to explain it as I know you have a lot going on. I am sure this will help others as well.

    Turns out I was testing the theory running solo in a multiplayer race, thus when I crossed the line the sim would take over as I was the last car running. So now it makes perfect sense. Hoping some day we can get back to how RF1/AMS or even iracing lets us have complete control until we choose to exit.
