Anything you have to set in your network connection settings?

Or in TMU laucher?

no nothing, that stays as usual, as proxycap routes all the given program traffic ...

... if you followed as discribed in the first post, than it should have nothing todo with that solution... if the solution wouldnt work, you could not even connect to any server...

i just set this up here at work on a university network where nearly all ports are blocked... but with that way it works like a sharm ...

I'm having the same problem, it load the map, the "please wait" and then the game freezes... :(

I'm using this "fix" for the steam version of trackmania nations forever on winxp pro x64, my proxycap is the 64bit version.

edit: Ok so after looking at it, it seems that what happened is that the game started to download something and it stopped to work. I went to the game options peer2peer settings and disabled downloading and uploading.

Now it connects without any trouble.

ps: can you make a guide using a free alternative to proxycap? in 30 days the trial will run out :(

Thanks for the useful tutorial, TrabTowN!

Upon playing the game for some minutes, I would get the following error message: "Could not contact server. Connection to <IP:port> failed or disconnected from server (10060)"

TrackManiacs, if you experience this problem, please follow this simple tutorial:

- in the PeerToPeer configuration tab, untick both "Enable download" and "Enable upload";

- install "Your Freedom," then create an account and connect to a P2P-friendly server;

- install "SocksCap," then configure it entering "localhost" as the SOCKS v5 server;

- add the "TmForever" executable, then double-click the icon to start the game;

- connect to TrackMania's servers, defeating the P2P-traffic-shaping ISPs.


Software can be get here:

Happy playing, you crazy speedy, online arcade-racing folks ;)

He may not read that, since he hasn't been online here since August 5. Which is unfortunate, because his methods comparison site http://methods.tmu-forever.com/ is severely out of date after all the server releases. :(

:roflol:

sorry sweat harts :sweet:

thanks corto for sending me a reminder on the sa site..

...several things happened ever since, with tmuf it was firstly not worthwhile for us any more to spend hours and hours on coding and developing as the community got way to wide spread( unfortunately) and the acknowledgement is nearly gone... further i started a bachelor degree study on game development and this takes nearly all my time ( i am 34 and its quite a change in life to go back to college :lol: )

however, as the coincident wants it, i am done early today and i will look in an update for that method overview for you guys...

sorry for all the... you know :oops:

.... unfortunately TM is not that any more what it was 3 years ago, at least for my side :/

all the Best

hi people

im having traffic shaping problems i think :S i have a few RST lines in wireshark

i tried your solution but after i installed proxycap and reboot i lost connection to the internet :S nothing connects, browsers, msn or tmnf...nothing, probably its something obvious but i dont know,i have Your Freedom and proxycap both running at the same time but the internet doesn't work,and when i uninstall proxycap it works again

i cant understand :S

i hope that some of you can help me, because i cant play in any server in weeks

and just in case can you tell me how to configure proxyway and/or http-tunnel? i did note see any place in these programs to add TmForever.exe and i assume that these programas are to be used along with your freedom

sorry the big text and the bad english
