    - Extract the files into your AC/server directory, next to acServer executable or extract anywhere else and set ac_server_directory in exe.config to folder where acServer executable is located
    - If not already installed you need .NET 4.0

    Plugin for result, report and server chat functionality
    - add/edit these lines in the server_cfg.ini (you may adjust the ports, the ports are read from the server_cfg.ini)


    Track Cycle (optional):

    - put this section in your server_cfg.ini

    syntax is like this <trackname>,<lapcount>;<trackname>,<lapcount>,<layout>;<trackname>,<lapcount>

    cfg Template Cycle (optional):

    - fill the name of the cfg template folder that includes a server_cfg.ini and/or entry_list.ini in the exe.config key template_cycle, separated with ;
    <add key="template_cycle" value="spa_gt3;nurburgring_street_mix"/>

    In the exe.config you can also specify which incidents are broadcasted, 0=off, 1=only car with car, 2=all
    <add key="broadcast_incidents" value="2"/>

    You can specify the number of result broadcast positions
    <add key="broadcast_results" value="10"/>

    You can specify whether fastest lap set in session should be broadcasted live, 0=off, 1=on
    <add key="broadcast_fastest_lap" value="1"/>

    You can specify the welcome message. For multiple lines use the | for line breaks. To disable set to empty string.
    <add key="welcome_message" value="Welcome $DriverName$ to $ServerName$!|Please drive respectfully!"/>

    - if you uncheck "Change track after race" the track will not be cycled after the race, you can flip this option while the server is running, so if you like to stay on the track for some races just uncheck, if you have enough, check.

    - the "Next Track" button switches the track immediately

    - you can also use admin commands to change the track while you are in the game, just type in the chat after you authorized yourself as admin with /admin myPassword

    /change_track spa
    /change_track ks_nordschleife,endurance
    the track(and config, separated with comma, but no space!) in /change_track needs to be in the TRACKS=... list

    - admin command for sending a message from the server
    /broadcast blablabla

    - admin command for sending a message from the server to a specific player
    /send_chat carId blablabla

    note: chat started with / is not visible to other players

    - the server does NOT change the track if restart_session or next_session is voted after the race, so people can prevent the track change if they make a successful vote. Only after the RACE_OVER_TIME has passed the server will change the track

    - the result json are saved in the "sessionresults" folder

    - for the track graph to work you need the official map.png and map.ini in the official folder structure. If you run acServer from a complete game steam installation, they will be found. If you are having a standalone server installation, you can put the two files per track in the content/tracks subfolders (where the surface.ini files are)

    Perfect solution for track rotation without booking mode. !!
    Thanks for all your efforts ;)
    Once system understood ( maybe better didactically explained, maybe the reason of so few reviews: download but maybe not applied for this reason ), it works perfectly.

      You can configure cars as usual with acservermanager.
      You can specify the plugin address/ports in acservermanager like this: http://www.racedepartment.com/threads/ac_trackcycle.109505/page-4#post-2156693
      Once you copied server_cfg.ini and entry_list.ini to your server/cfg directory, you need to add these two lines to the server_cfg.ini


      Then you start AC_TrackCycle.exe (don't start acServer.exe manually)
