Post by Callestere » 06 Nov 2010 17:12

I just recently became a member and just recently downloaded trackmania nation forever and when i try to extract it it stays at 0%. The only way i can close the window is to use task manager here is my system info below.

version 2002 service pack 3
intel pentium 3 processor
931Mhz 384mb of RAM

You've got "TMU" (Trackmania United) listed as the game you own, so you'd be possibly far better off installing the "Forever" update for the full game version rather than waste time on the stadium only free version of the game. There are a few threads from other people who have the same problems installing (didn't search the forum for even a few minutes did you? :thumbsup: ) with associated answers.

However, judging by the limited info of your PC spec, both game versions (paid for, and free) are likely way above what your hardware spec might be able to deliver anyway. Sorry.

TM runs best on PC's with :
over 512meg of system RAM
above 1.7Ghz CPU
and a graphics card at least as powerful as an ancient old nVidia 6600GT, or Ati 1600Pro (DX9c specification with at least 256meg of dedicated graphics RAM)

PC's of less power might attempt to play the game, but it'll perform badly, load slowly, and deliver such a low frame rate, with minimal detail levels that many won't enjoy the experience. If you are determined to install games with a higher hardware requirement than your PC possibly has, you'd have to either tell us more on your hardware (no graphic card/chip listed at all, and this is the #1 importance to playing games on PC!), and/or the size of the install EXE you have. Alternatively you can try downloading the game install file from another site, which worked for everyone else with the same problem as you have.

By the powers of the interweb and the "mighty Mjolnir ™" I shalt google for thee : "trackmania nations forever download"

http://www.filefront.com/10013754/Track ... Full-Game/
http://www.gamershell.com/download_24766.shtml
http://www.bigdownload.com/games/trackm ... full-game/

Unless the evil Loki has influence over you, I would suggest you might like to try another site.

Also a handly list of how good/indifferent/bad graphics chips in laptops (a hundred other examples for desktop variants are only another google search away) graphics are can be read here :

Good luck.

I have noticed a recent bug wherby the file does not download correctly in IE8 in many instances (not just TM either), usually clicking the dowload link with the right mouse button and selecting "open link in a new tab" solves the issue,

hopefully this may help.
