Issues unresolved[edit]

Chat Issues[edit]

  • Some users report issues attempting to use chat after using Elite Matchmaking. Using all chat will send text like normal, but teamchat messages will not go out.
  • With multiple links on the screen, hovering over one hyperlink renders the others on screen broken.

Input issues[edit]

  • Some buttons fail to register or register in the correct manner. ESC will occasionally fail to exit a menu, instead closing momentarilly and then reopening that same menu.

Matchmaking issues[edit]

  • Some users are reporting errors with matchmaking. Elite Matchmaking causes some input and chat isssues.

Issues fixed[edit]

Matchmaking Issues[edit]

  • Sometimes when attempting to connect to a server, you will get a message informing you that the server does not have the latest copy of the game. Unfortunately, you must wait for the server operator to update the server before it will work again.
  • Disabling the firewall or creating an exception for <path-to-game>\ManiaPlanet.exe can prevent some networking issues.

Beta Users[edit]

  • Beta users with an account creation date before April 10, 2013 will retain access to Elite and Royal game modes. Beta accounts from after that date will not be allowed continued access to these modes.
  • Currently some beta users are having problems accessing Elite and Royal servers. This is a known issue. If reinstalling the game client from the Shootmania website doesn't solve it, contact support with your account data.
