XGN Server Details
« on: September 21, 2013, 09:09:51 PM »
Game Version
We are using 1.3.0.1534 of the game, which is the second newest version (not the latest version 1.3.0.1727). If you have updated to the latest version of the game, you can revert your game back to the version we use with the version switcher utility which you can download here.

Race Server Details
The race server is called www.xgn.com.au
The race server is usually not password protected since a fixed grid entry list is used. If the race server is passworded, PM any existing league member and ask for the password.

Jump straight to the server
You can launch the game and jump straight to the XGN server by creating a shortcut in Windows which points to this link: nkp://116.212.196.244:9500
For this to work, you have to download jump2nkp here. You run it once, and it enables a link handler for nkp links.

TeamSpeak
TeamSpeak can be download here.
The TeamSpeak server is ts.xgn.com.au.

Running your own rank server (optional)
You can run your own private ranked server if you want to automatically submit your lap times to the nkPRO rank web site.
 
You will need nKServerTool and replace the exe with this version with bug fixes and nkPro Rank Tool.
 
Install them both into your root nkPRO folder.
Open port 9500 (TCP & UDP) on your router for the server (not totally sure if this is necessary for a local server).
 
Then run nKServerTool.
 
On the "Main config" tab, untick "Register server...." to make it private.
On the "Sessions" tab, set up a practice session.
Then click the "Start Rank Server" button. Once it starts up, it should appear in the online lobby for you to join. Do a few laps and see if your times appear in the rank web site.
 
If you have any problems, try running the server tool as administrator.
 
Running your own server with ballast
 
Use nKServerTool to set up your own local server and set up a practice session as described above.
 
Go to the Grid tab and bring your driver across into the Grid box.
Type in the ballast you need, click the driver in the grid box, then click Set Ballast.
Then you can Save the config and click the Start Server button.
 
Now in the game you should see your new server in the server list and be able to join it.

I think you need to check the 'jump-to' link Wally.
Jump-to is working for me on all other links, except this one. :-\

Fixed. The new forum software doesn't like "nkp:" style links.

I think since we moved to this new forum, it screws up non-standard links in posts. Just edit the properties of your shortcut to point to nkp://116.212.196.244:9500/

Download jump2nkp here, put it in your NKP folder game and run it.
Right click on your desktop and select New > Shortcut. Type in nkp://116.212.196.244:9500/ and click next.
