if you installed through steam:
  • 1. when the popup comes up select trackmania settings OR right click the game and select trackmania settings
    2. read bottom
if you installed through the official .exe:
  • 1.click configure
    2. click advanced
have fun experimenting, you can make it look shitty but still nice if your good. and theres more options under each tab, use common sense

SCREEEN RESOLUTION is a touchy thing, if you run a low resolution and on high res monitor your system actually has to work harder EXPANDING the pixels to fit on the screen, so test high resolution and low resolution

ie: antialiasing NONE, shader quality pc1 OR pc2, medium shadows, texture quality HIGH, max filtering trillinear, post processing ON, force dynamic colors ON, force bloom ON.

3.2 intel pentium 2x

Got the exact same problem, loads of lag pre-loading and after the loading, and when clicking menues, no lag whatsoever while just playing. Tried the stuff you suggested, did not work.

What also makes a big difference is disabling all Peer2peer options.
Open the Trackmania Launcher, goto advanced -> Peer2peer and disable all options.
This should make a difference with the lag and loading times, only 1 downside:
You won't see custom avatars and skins of the other players.
