TMN not starting window closes [solved]

Post by geodejo » 02 Nov 2010 00:46

Hi,

I've played this game in the past and just recently downloaded it again via Steam on windows XP-SP3.

The problem I was having with the recent download was that the game would not start. The window would just open, then close.

If I disabled sound then the game would crash and want to send a crash report to Microsoft.

I trawled the forums for a solution to no avail - which is why I'm posting this solution here.

To fix this I right clicked on the various game executables to get their properties, then under the compatiblity tab I set them to run in windows 95 compatiblity mode (I also tried windows 2000 mode but that didn't help). Now everything works fine.

Hope this helps.

Actually after 6 months of trying to find the answer it worked for me. I went to the folder where the game is and set TMForever.exe, TMForeverLauncher and testapp.exe to Win95 compatibility mode and started testapp.exe and the game started. My suggestion for everyone is to try to open the "testapp.exe"

OMG THANKYOU!!!!!
i went to the steam folder in Program Files, and went to
Steam>Steamapps>common>trackmania nations forever
and in that found was Test App
i didnt even change any of the compatibilty options, ran Test App and trackmania loaded perfectly
I then however retried the original game application (not test app) and that didnt work, but test app does

thanks sooo much!
my solution is to just make a test app shortcut somewhere and rename and if you want to edit the config, just load the launcher.
cheers guys for all your help!

Nothing works for me. Even if i set compatibility mode and "run as administator", it still closes just after starting :(
I have windows 7.
