Mania++ is an in-development Server Controller for TrackMania 2 (ManiaPlanet) servers. It is written in C++ and is at this moment basically a hobby-project. You’re free to try it and contribute to the system, all ideas and assitance is welcome. No guarantee this makes it to a release-ready state, so be aware of that before using it on your servers.

Current build status

Also checkout the Mania++ versioning system for more about the software versions and branches.


Mania++ and its sources are available under the GNU General Public License v3. This allows users/contributors to make changes to the source code, as long as those changes are made available under the same license as the original. The copyright/license notices should not be removed from the sources/workspace.

Tested environments

The ./ requires a Debian-like system to function (with apt-get). The JSON library requires gcc/g++ v4.9+, the 14.04 LTS only comes with 4.8.4, so you will have to upgrade the version by hand and tell the build script that you want to use that version: -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=g++-4.9 -DCMAKE_C_COMPILER=gcc-4.9.
