I'm happy to report the downloads have all been restored. The track downloads have been restored 100% while the truck downloads are at 99%. Sadly I have not backed-up tracks past February 25th. If you have uploaded a truck after that date (by my calculation we are missing about 18 trucks) please re-upload your work. The uploads work for both tracks and trucks. Pictures will not be activated yet until I receive the flash drive from Phineus. Enabling pictures now will mess up the database. However, it is strongly recommended for you to upload pictures with your trucks as the moment the switched is turned on your truck will be ready to go with a display alongside.
Now I'm gonna take a break and figure out what's the next step of the restoration process. There's more work to be done with the database (ie. activating the search engine) but my priority is for all the resources to first be available before I venture into enabling the "luxurious" features.
I'm happy to report that after two days of continuos struggle (still a noob at this), I've managed to succesfully re-create the automatic uploading process. So far you can only upload tracks. The truck uploading will be turned on once I've gotten the 2011-2014 database up to date (it will be done next week).
The patch is also available for download once more.
The track database has been restored. All the downloads are now active. Of course, there are no images and search does not work yet but each page is accessible individually. The truck database is available for download up until 2010 (including).
In the meantime Phineus will send me everything he has regarding the website (up until 2010), like pictures etc. It's coming in the form of a flash drive through regular mail but I can't wait to go through all the files and see what can be restored.
In the meantime, if you want to upload a track or truck remember to email it to me at: slo_fila at yahoo.com.
The long and painful restoration process has begun. With the help of Phineus, presently the site can be accessed with both mtm2.com and cownap.com. As I previously mentioned, restoration priority is downloads first. For now, the tracks from 2009 and 2010 can be downloaded again (pages are accessible). There are no pictures and no garage settings. These will be uploaded/activated in time once all the tracks and trucks are available again.
With this opportunity I would like to mention that online MTM2 activity can still be found. The game is currently being played at www.voobly.com. You have to sign up and download a client which will allow you to join a game room not too far away from what the MSN Gamign Zone lobbies used to look like. Of course activities are a bit rare but people still ocasionally race and rumble. So be sure to join!!!
MTM2.com will live on. THe original site has, sadly, been lost. I have been able to back up 100% of the tracks and 99% of the trucks that were released until the site went offline. Please bear with me as I will slowly bring back the functionality. The only working link right now is the forum. It's a brand new forum so you will have to re-register. The first order of business will be to bring back the tracks and trucks, together with pictures and as many garage settings as possible. In time I will do my best to bring up as much as much info as possible about traxx and Binedit. If someone is willing to lend me a hand then the process will be faster. Also, if you would like to upload a track or a truck please do so at the following email: slo_fila at yahoo.com. I haven't figured out yet how to make the automatic process work.
